WINTER 2015 SPECIAL: There are $35 nights! BEST RATE FOR THE BEST ROOM
TO ANY AIRBNB GUEST
I decided to offer airport/bus pick-up to NYC visitors because although many taxi's are honest, when some see a tourist, they tend to act as though they are a foreigner too while running up their meter while seeming to be super helpful and patient finding your destination, and then expect a more generous tip.
I live in Manhattan in a very easy location and I have experienced it more than half of the times when guests have taken a taxi.
Arranging with me, you are worry-free to arrive home and you will know the fare before getting on.
Please treat my home as if it were your own or better.
Be respectful in the apartment, everyone should feel comfortable
Keep the apartment is drug-free, smoke-free 24 hours a day
Common Areas should always be kept clean (Example: tub, sink, kitchen, etc..).
Air conditioner, tv, and lights should not be left on while not in the house.
No non-reserved guest entry at any time.
My brother and I had a great time at Chris' apartment, during our winter vacation in New York City. The listing is accurate, neighbourhood is safe, and Chris keeps his place clean and warm. Supermarket and food places are nearby as well. We appreciated Chris' friendliness and support – before and during our stay.
I would recommend this place for people who aren't trying to take in all of NYC in a rush, because the apartment location is in the very north of Manhattan but most of the tourist attractions are at the bottom. So while we loved that there are 2 subways stops nearby the apartment, sometimes it took a while for us to get home after exploring the city.
Still, a great value listing and highly recommended!
La posizione e' unica proprio davanti alla stazione della metropolitana. L'appartamento e' pulito e non manca nulla. Chris e' sempre disponibile ad aiutarti in caso di bisogno, raggiungibile al cellulare o con mail che legge sempre e in tempo reale (rete wifi di casa funziona benissimo!). Il quartiere e' animato e vivace, lontano dalle folle dei turisti, non manca nulla dai supermercati alla farmacia ai ristoranti (a pochi isolati ce ne sono di ottimi). Alcuni ospiti hanno evidenziato il rumore proveniente dalla strada, ma noi abbiamo sempre dormito, e comunque e' il rumore di una citta' strepitosa che non dorme mai! Era la mia prima esperienza in una guesthouse e credevamo di avere problemi a condividere con altri gli spazi comuni (come il bagno e la cucina) invece e' andato tutto bene, anzi abbiamo potuto conoscere persone provenienti da diversi paesi (salutiamo Emmanuel bravissimo artista nigeriano che vive e studia in Canada). Chris e' sempre disponibile al dialogo e non manca mai di farti conoscere i nuovi ospiti. Il quartiere e' sicuro anche di sera e la zona e' sempre animata.
Chirs is very nice and the location of his house is very good. Near by two subway station.You can find everything in his house. It feels like coming home.
Our stay in Chris's house was very good. The apartment is really cosy and clean but it's a bit far away from lower Manhattan (it took us 1 hour to get there, the subway station is very close though). We really liked our bedroom. 4 ppl managed to sleep there but it seemed to be a bit too small when airbeds appeared on the floor. The host is really nice and helpful, he collected us exactly at the time when we were supposed to meet and he was trying to make sure that our stay is alright. I do recommend the apartment
Chris is a nice person. He is very soft spoken and explains things quite clear. Few things we didn't like about the apartment room is that we were not allowed to speak freely in the night. Apartment was very small and there were few other people fitted in the living area. Bathroom was one so it was another trouble for 5-6 people.
Please make sure if you don't worry about these things then get this deal. Because it is cheap deal.
Chris really is a great person, he was helpful with everything we need. The apartment is clean e really close to 2 metro stations, but it wasn't quite the way we thought, there were times that there was 6-7 persons to use only one bathroom, sometimes the other guests or even Chris were really noise, listing to music and stuff, the building is more than 100 years old, is dirty and it smells. We expected the neighborhood to be typical american, but it was all dominicans, they don't speak english, so it's a little hard to communicate, and at night it seems really dangerous.
Overall it was a nice staying, if you are going to stay for a few days is a good place, but if you're up for a week or more is better to look for a place just for you.
