This appartment is perfectly situated. We walked until time square, 5th av., central park, etc. Also very close from the Lincoln tunnel or the central bus terminal. Karolina was very helpful, letting us know that we could buy tickets for pippin for 37$ and it worked very well! Everything was great! The top 3 of our week end : Smalls jazz club in greenwich village (try the cocktail "moon...rhum, basil, grapefruit, etc."), tartine restaurant nearby (bring your own wine), Pippin (broadway show), Brooklyn Flea Market in Williamsburg.
This was our second stay at Karolina's apartment, and it was great. The apartment is only a short walk from Times Square, and is in a safe part of town. Karolina is a gracious and helpful host, and the apartment is spotless. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Karolina's apartment over the xmas / new year period.
Karolina met us at the apartment after we texted her to advise we had arrived at the airport. Karolina was very friendly and gave us lots of good advice about New York sites, Restaurants and Theatre handy hints.
The apartment was neat and tidy and very clean. The furnishings were really nice and the bed and couch were comfy.
The location of the apartment was fantastic and we would book again just based on this. It is approx 5 mins walk to Times Square, Theatre district and a subway station. It is surrounded by a variety of restaurants with choices of any cuisine and to suit any budget. Great for food lovers.
There are multiple smaller supermarkets for those wishing to purchase food to cook but a little walk or train ride to the larger supermarkets.
The apartment has everything you need in the kitchen, including a large fridge, use of the wardrobe and bathroom cabinet.
It was so cold when we were in New York and the apartment is nicely heated so was lovely to come back to at the end of a cold day. We were always warm overnight.
The towels and linen are all clean and Karolina provided toilet paper and cleaning products.
The neighbours were noisy from about 5-9pm each night and argued loudly on a regular basis. This of course was not Karolina's fault but just to be wary you can hear this.
The street noise is loud, as is any apartment in such a great location but ear plugs helped at night, which was the only time we were at the apartment.
There were no curtains in the bedroom or dining area. We used a sarong in the bedroom to improvise as a curtain so that we could get changed in private. It would be great for Karolina to invest in a blind. Please take a dark sarong or piece of material with you if you can.
Overall I would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
Thanks Karolina. Hope to see you again.
We loved staying in the apartment. It was clean, well located and quite pleasant. Space was fine for two. Karolina was lovely. The only suprise was no TV, which I loved but my traveling companion missed. Anyway, we had an ipad. Who needs TV!
The whole experience was great.
Karolina apartment was perfect for our shopping trip to New York
We would stay again and recommend it to any friends going to New York
This was a FABULOUS first Airbnb experience that very much exceeded our expectations! Karolina was so helpful and accommodating. She was able to provide suggestions and was flexible with our check-in and departure times. The apartment was just as advertised -- clean, quaint, a fabulous location! We would absolutely stay here again on our next trip to NYC.
Karolina has an absolutely immaculate and fabulously-located apartment. She is very accommodating with fluctuating schedules, and easy to contact. This was our debut Airbnb visit, and we couldn't have asked for a kinder host or better experience. Would definitely recommend her place, and we would definitely stay there again!
Location! Location! Location! The location was terribly convenient and accessible to various major attractions in the New York City. Apartment was clean and so was the street and the building. Pier 84 dock was a five to ten minute walk. Took New York Water Taxi from Pier 84 all the way to 9/11 Memorial Site/Lower Manhattan/Statue of Liberty. And then took the water taxi back to Pier 84 dock. Didn't have to take the Subway at all. Central Park was about 20 minutes away. One concern: Parking remained a mystery. We were told that there was no free parking on the street. We did, however, find out that parking on the street (South side) was allowed except for 11am - 12:30pm on MON and THUR. By the time we realized it, $50 were already spent (parked our car in garage on the next street from Friday night till Saturday night). Anyway, parked our car on the south side of the street from Saturday night till Monday morning at no cost! Parking is allowed on Sunday on the North side of the street from 8AM - Midnight. Overall, had an amazing time in NYC and loved the apartment!
Karolina's place is perfect for a getaway in the city. The apartment is comfortable and spacious (NYC standards), but most importantly it has a fantastic location! We loved being right in the middle of Hell's Kitchen, close to many great restaurants, Times Square, Hudson River, and most subway lines. Karolina was very easy to contact before check-in and the place looks exactly like the pictures. We'll definitely be coming back next time we're in the city.
This charming apartment offers a winning trifecta: great on the inside (immaculate, good natural light, immaculate, comfortable mattress, more spacious than most Manhattan hotel rooms at thrice the price, and did I mention immaculate?), great on the outside (quiet block even on Fri-Sat night; within easy strolling distance to some of the city's top restaurants, diners, bakeries, and bars; close to subway, Port Authority, Bolt Bus), and a great host (very responsive, sincerely helpful, knows from her own broad experience what information matters to travelers). Frankly I'm a little afraid that when visitors discover what a gem this is it'll be impossible to find a vacancy here again--so if you think this sounds too good to be true, go ahead and look elsewhere because I'd like to be able to return again myself next time I go to NY!
It was a pleasure to host a fellow airbnb host. We took an immediate liking to Karolina as she is a super friendly and funny person. We hope to see her again and wish her wonderful travels! We warmly recommend her to other hosts!
