This was my first AirBnB experience and I must say it far exceeded my expectations and made for a wonderful weekend in New York City! The apartment (hosted by Michael Knowlen) was spacious and clean and in a perfect location near Gramercy Park. The bathroom was spotless and filled with brand new towels, shampoos, soaps. Truly a 5-star experience and I have already asked Michael if I can stay at this location again when I'm back in NYC this spring. 5 stars!
Mike's apartment was awesome. I was really happy with everything, and it was greta being only a couple blocks from my meeting on Park Ave. He was really responsive to my questions, and made me feel really comfortable with the booking.
The apartment itself is in a secure building, with a doorman at night. Really easy access. The apartment is beautiful, well decorated, and a comfortable bed. Tons of space for a NY apartment, and I really felt at home. Was so much nicer than staying in a hotel!
Great apartment above the Gramercy theatre. Fantastic location near a subway station, so very easy to to get to all of the tourist sites. Walking distance to the Empire State Building and many other sites.
The flat is also very spacious and has everything you'd need for a stay in New York. Highly recommended!
Mike was an awesome host. He was in contact with me immediately after I made the reservation and answered all my questions. He provided a very detailed and thorough description of everything I would need to know about the apartment, getting around and the neighborhood (which is great by the way).
The apartment itself was great too. Perfect layout for what I needed. Plenty of space and very clean, especially for a NYC apartment.
Great overall experience. I would definitely rent this apartment from Mike again.
Michael was a great host. He was very communicative with me before my arrival and explained to me in detail everything I would need to know to enjoy my stay and take advantage of the neighborhood. The apartment was very cozy and felt like an authentic New York city apartment. The location between Soho and West Village couldn't be better. Tons of great restaurants and bars all within walking distance and was super close to the subway so we could get up to Times Square and ground zero easily. We were even around the corner from the building from Friends! Michael stayed in touch and really made me feel at home. One of my better AirBnB experiences!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Michael was very flexible with check in and check out. His condo is in a great location and it has an elevator which I promise is a big deal after a long day out! The bed is comfortable, the TV and internet were great and the location is primo. The home was freshly cleaned before we arrived. Michael stayed in touch with us all weekend and made us feel at home. One of our better AirBnB experiences!
Awesome place! Clean and very well located. It was even bigger than I expected.
The check-in and check-out were easy. Only positive points!
Michael is a kind and gracious host. Very responsive and easy to deal with. His place was exactly as stated, comfortable and in a great location close to several eating out options and metro stations. Our stay was perfect! Thanks Michael!!
It was a pleasant and pain free experience. Michael gave us clear instructions for accessing the unit, which was scrupulously clean and nicely furnished. A great deal at a great location
Michael and his friends were great! Michael kept in touch with me by email throughout the entire process and when he met for the checkin and everything it all went flawlessly. Since they left very early in the morning for their flight back they left the keys in the mailbox and when I returned everything was spotless! I would highly recommend them to everyone on airbnb and they are welcome back anytime.
Nice guests, left the flat clean and everything ok :)
Michael Knowlen was a responsible tenent. Everything was left clean and i can recommend him in best way to the next landlord and landlady.
