VERY BAD LOCATION! ! !
Home: Arrival JFK 22h 35 midnight so on site, a person at the reception quite incompetent at 2am still in their offices to get the keys, finally obtained after waking the boss of the agency and the phone threat to call the police. My family so 2 young children, meanwhile, in the street with suitcases.
Apartment rented for 8 people, 4 bedrooms, but certainly both won on the living room, dining area by a plywood partition.
Therefore the living room was limited to less than 9 m2.
For 8 people, only 1 bathroom, tiny with the toilet inside, easy to manage for 8.
Furthermore, all in all 4 chairs, 4 glasses no towels ...
no machine, dishes or laundry.
Only reaction of the agency, lamps were changed suckled and large plastic tape has been to close off the wall on the street.
Cleanliness very limit.
In addition an amount for late arrival was taken as well as a non-recovered deposited $ 525 to date.
ADDRESS TO AVOID ABSOLUTELY.
TRES MAUVAISE LOCATION ! ! !
accueil : arrivée JFK 22h 35 donc minuit sur site, une personne à l'accueil tout à fait incompétente, à 2 h du matin toujours dans leurs bureaux pour obtenir les clefs, obtenus enfin après réveil du patron de l'agence au téléphone et menace d'appeler la police. Ma famille donc 2 jeunes enfants , pendant ce temps, dans la rue avec les valises.
Appartement loué pour 8 personnes, 4 chambres, certes mais deux gagnées sur le salon, salle à manger par une cloison de contreplaqué.
De ce fait la pièce à vivre se limitait à moins de 9 m2.
Pour 8 personnes, 1 seule salle de bain, minuscule avec les toilettes à l'intérieur,facile à gérer pour 8.
Par ailleurs, en tout et pour tout 4 chaises, 4 verres pas de torchons …
aucune machine, vaisselle ou linge.
Seule réaction de l'agence, des lampes ont tété changées et du gros scotch plastique a été mis pour obturer le mur sur la rue.
État de propreté très limite.
Qui plus est un montant pour arrivée tardive a été prélevé de même qu'un déposait de 525 $ non récupéré à ce jour.
ADRESSE A EVITER ABSOLUMENT.
We arrived NY 13 April in glorious sunshine and retrieved the key to our apartment. The apartment was very central, with lots Puper, restaurants, Amy's Bread across the street where we bought fresh bread every day, and small grocery stores. The apartment was somewhat worn, do lid was loose, missing legs on one dining room chair, and for us who had planned to cook something yourself, it lacked some service. Glass was little off, so it had to be cleaned up after each time. It also lacked things like wash rag. No problem to buy, but seems it's like going to lie there. The bathroom was very soft after shower. When we arrived the apartment was this really hot and we were airing one bedroom. The window allowed himself open, but not again. This was also the bedroom off the main street so it was impossible to be there. We tried calling arrival, but got no reply. We went there the next day and they said they were aware of the problem. We were not the first this had happened. First Friday they turned up and repaired the window. This meant that three of us had to share a bedroom. So far no problem, but it was not what we had paid for. This draws some down.
Conclusion: The location was very good, but do not think it was been the 26,000 we paid for a week in respect of the things mentioned.
Vi ankom NY 13. april i strålende solskinn og hentet nøkkelen til vår leilighet. Leiligheten lå veldig sentralt, med masse puper, restauranter, Amys bread rett over gaten hvor vi kjøpte fersk brød hver dag og små butikker for dagligvare. Leiligheten var noe slitt, do lokk som var løs, manglende ben på den ene spisestue stolen, og for oss som hadde planlagt å lage noe mat selv, manglet det en del service. Glass var det lite av, så det måtte vaskes opp etter hver gang. Det manglet også ting som vaskefille. Ikke noe problem å kjøpe, men synes det er sånt som skulle ligge der. Badet ble veldig bløtt etter dusj. Da vi ankom leiligheten var denne veldig varm og vi skulle lufte det ene soverommet. Vinduet lot seg åpne, men ikke igjen. Dette var også soverommet ut mot hovedgaten så det ble umulig å ligge der. Vi prøvde å ringe ankomstdagen, men fikk ikke svar. Vi dro dit dagen etter og de sa de var klar over problemet. Vi var ikke de første dette hadde skjedd med. Først fredag dukket de opp og reparerte vinduet. Det betydde at tre av oss måtte dele et soverom. Forså vidt ikke noe problem, men det var ikke det vi hadde betalt for. Dette trekker en del ned.
Konklusjon: Beliggenheten var veldig bra, men synes ikke det var vært de 26 tusen vi betalte for en uke med hensyn til de tingene som er nevnt.
The stay was dreadful. Drafts in the flat. No heating (in November !!!). We were supposed to stay 6 nights, we stayed 2, we tooked refuge in a hotel... Humidity, mold. Painting hides poverty. Owners didn't want to give the money back. One room didn't have window.
We´ve been with 8 People in this appartement. Location was great quick steps to broadway and other interesting places like circle line, 5th AV etc. Appartement was clean but small for 8 people you have to improve a bit - chair and table for 4 persons only on the other hand no space for ore. They were very flexible to change towels once - no problem at all. Only really negative point was 1 bathroom and toilet but this was known before from us. Everything a bit old and toilet and shower was blocked once. At the end nice and clean but you must be flexible to stay there with 8 people.
The apartment served us well during our recent stay in New York. The location is excellent, nice affluent area with lovely restaurants and bars close by. The Subway stop is only one block away on 79th st and this leads to all attractions. The apartment is relatively spacious, 2 of the bedrooms are much bigger than the other 2 and some of the plug sockets and air con units don't work, Wi-Fi is flakey but other than this we would highly recommend the apartment, it was extremely clean with plenty of towels and bedding.
This is an agency that manages the nominated property, they are available at your service in case of problems, as was our case upon arrival with the apartment door that remained locked with inability to reopen. Reactivity was perfect from the team. Regarding the apartment itself, it is quite the pictures and description, spacious, however little light as recessed floor but as we spent our nights only this n was not a concern. The location is great (5 minutes walk from two metro stations). I recommend this apartment to stay in New York. We really enjoyed the scene
C'est une agence qui gère le bien proposé, ils sont disponibles, à votre service en cas de problème comme ce fut notre cas dès l'arrivée avec la porte de l'appartement qui est restée fermée à clef avec impossibilité de la rouvrir. La réactivité a été parfaite de la part de l'équipe. En ce qui concerne l'appartement en lui-même; il correspond tout à fait à la description et aux photos, spacieux, en revanche peu de lumière car en RDC encastré mais étant donné que nous n'y avons passé que nos nuits ce n'était pas un souci. L'emplacement est idéal (5mn à pied de 2 stations de métro). Je recommande ce logement pour un séjour à New York. Nous avons vraiment apprécié les lieux
A perfect week in the city which never sleep...
2 minutes by foot of time square, 5 minutes of the 5th avenue, what more can you ask for?...
We stay at 4 adults and a baby on the flat and the size was perfect.
Raphael and his colleague always answer to all the mail and the service to pick up off the keys or leave the luggages on the last day was very appreciable!
For our next trip in NYC we call upon to Raphael and Casanova Condos for sure! So don't hesitate to!
Appatement change at the last minute and was replaced without giving us any choice other supposedly more expensive quieter so old so ... Way of saying that that I had chosen was noisy, small, and old! S without Lay on the fact of not being able to choose the apartment (only one choice therefore propose ps choice) on sale the existence of what they call a terrace but which is only a tiny balcony and one forgets to mention that the three th room is located 3 meters in height and is accessible by a ladder of "fireman" prohibiting descent half asleep at night when needed very natural! If we add to this picture the fact that a 3 m high it is twice as hot that down!! and that the air conditioning in the main room was broken (say that we were moved to apartment bp air conditioning (that said when you see the shape of the air conditioning that date after war sounds like a truck when one is edge of the highway, and not as it refreshes!!)) thing that it took us to report (it would be better to put a person that the air conditioning before we arrived which would have allowed al office to anticipate the renewal the defective air conditioning. Having said problem reported and resolved the very next day but effective overwhelmed corner store!! In summary it is clear that the demand for rental apartment is huge and that we rent all year and no matter what any price! !The apartment that I had announced a selected area of 75 m2 on your site and the owner told me he will never declared such a surface (the one that I had finally got to half or slightly more. Unfortunate mismatch between the site and Like any reality places (too?) popular we feel that if it does not suit us we found a shovel to others! But note the good observed during this holiday apartment actually very quiet sides overlooking a leafy courtyard bp réqolue air conditioning during the day (outright the prehistoric defective air conditioning replacement) ideal location not far from the very last. Bb 5 floor (one is 4 to usa) without lift that muscle the quad and glutes!
Appatement change au dernier moment et est remplacé sans nous donner de choix par un autre soi disant plus cher plus calme moins vieux etc ...
Façon de dire que celui que j avais choisi etait bruyant, petit , et vieux !!!
Sans s etendre sur le fait de ne plus pouvoir choisir l appartement (un seul choix proposer donc ps de choix ) on vente l existence de ce qu ils appellent une terrasse mais qui n est qu un minuscule balcon et on oublie de préciser que la 3 eme chambre se situe a 3 metres de hauteur et est accessible que par une echelle de "pompier" interdisant toute descente a moitié endormie pendant la nuit en cas de besoin bien naturel !!!
Si on rajoute a ce tableau le fait qu a 3 m de hauteur il fait deux fois plus chaud qu en bas !!!!!! et que la clim de la piece principale etait en panne (dire qu on nous a changé d appartement pour pb de clim (ceci dit quand vous voyez l allure de la clim ça date d apres guerre, fait un bruit de camion quand on est au bord de l autoroute , et ne raffraichit pas tant que ça !!!!)) chose qu il a fallut que nous signalions (il serait bien venu qu une personne mette la clim avant notre arrivée ce qui aurait permis a l office d anticiper le renouvelement de la clim defectueuse . Ceci dit probleme signalé et résolu dés le lendemain depanneur efficace mais débordé !!!!
En résumé on voit bien que la demande de location d appartement est énorme et qu on loue tout et n importe quoi a n importe quel prix !!!
L appartement que j avais choisi annoncait une surface de 75 m2 sur votre site et le loueur m a dit que jamais il n avait déclaré une telle surface (celui que j ai eu finalement devait faire la moitié ou legerement plus .
Discordance regrettable entre le site et la réalité
Comme tout les endroits très (trop?) prisés on sent que si ça ne nous convient pas on en trouvera a la pelle d autres !!
Mais notons les bons cotés observés pendant ce séjour appartement effectivement très calme donnant sur une cour interieure arborée pb de clim réqolue dans la journée (remplacement pur et simple de la clim préhistorique defectueuse) situation ideale pas loin de tout . dernier bemol 5 etage (4 on est aux usa) sans ascenseur ça muscle les quadri et les fessiers !!!
Approx. one week before the departure we were offered an alternative apartment, as in the booked allegedly went no hot water. The new apartment was booked near the Empire Sate Building `s and greater than that. We also had 2 heads instead of one. Key handover went smoothly. However, they gave us the wrong address in the office (143 West instead of East, 143) and thus again we had to take a detour in purchasing. The new apartment was clean and as described. We felt comfortable and we would stay there again.
Ca. eine Woche vor der Abreise wurde uns eine alternative Wohnung angeboten, da in der gebuchten angeblich kein warmes Wasser ging. Die neue Wohnung war in der Nähe des Empire Sate Building`s und größer als die gebuchte. Außerdem hatten wir 2 Nasszellen statt nur einer. Schlüsselübergabe verlief problemlos. Allerdings hat man uns im Büro die falsche Adresse gegeben (West 143 statt East 143) und wir mussten somit nochmal einen Umweg in Kauf nehmen. Die neue Wohnung war sauber und wie beschrieben. Wir haben uns dort wohl gefühlt und würden wieder dort buchen.
First of all, we were surprised to find out, that the keys needed to be picked up in another place. We asked to meet at the apartment as we want to be sure everything is clean and work properly. Host did not accept our proposal. Now we know the reason.
The apartment is a nightmare!. It is DIRTY!!!! Hair and spots all over the place (no wonder, they do not have a vacuum cleaner, only an old and dirty broom). There are 2 ½ bathroom, each of them were in terrible conditions, you will find black spots in the showers (fungus). Doors cannot be looked up as the door knobs are broken.
We (ten people) spend money buying cleaning stuff, and several hours cleaning the apartment. It was not possible to contact the office, as they went home by then.
Next day, we called the office and explained the situation. A lady was sent to clean, but without the most necessary tools to do it professionally, as written in the homepage. There were not enough bed clothes, dishes and pans.
Besides all the dirt, following appliances were not working properly: Washing machine, internet, and AIR CONDITIONING. We would like to mention, that the outside temperature in New York was around 36 and 40 °C.
Dealing with the people of “Casanova Condos” was very unpleasant. They are very rough. We were insulted. Our host “Raphael” never showed up. The manager offered us $400.00 for the cleaning, and all other costs we had (taxis to the office and several calls to Spain and Germany looking for support with WINDU). We never received the money. The explanation was that we broke 4 beds. We were not allowed to go back into the apartment to proof this was not the true.
If you care about cleanliness and good maintenance of the place you want to stay, this is not the place for YOU. We checked at the Consumer Office of New York City and found out “Casanova Condo” is not recommended as a serious business partner
