I Was in New York for one Week and I Was in this apartment. It's small badroom but really clean, very well equipped the kitchen, and really clean the restroom. Near to te subway, THE restorants too.
The room was really warm in comparison to the heavy cold weather outside. The bathroom and the kitchen was pretty clean. The neighborhood was safe and beautifull.
However our room was very very small and uncomfortable, it was never cleaned up and the towels were the same during the whole days of our stay. What is more, no only we never saw the owners of the appartment but also John (with whom we only spoke via viber/whats app) was not helpfull with some problems that we had.
The apartment is comfortable and cozy, even when all the rooms are full there's no any problem with the use of the bathroom and kitchen. Apartment was cleaned everyday, all the peoples in the apartments follow the rules, that's make easier and convenient the stay. The location is awesome, there is a bunch of great restaurants nearby and there are 3 different train routes available just 3 blocks of distances. there's also a bunch of places nearby to buy NY city souvenirs, ATM's in every corner and the neighborhood is very safe. John is very kind and always try to help you with your stay. Definitely I would stay again for the next visits to NY, 100% recommended.
The apartment was very clean and neat, but too small for 4 people. There was no storage space for suitcases and little space for garment. A big advantage is that you can at any time can prepare a breakfast or a small meal and is not necessarily forced to look for a restaurant. We have very good people met in the apartment and it was a nice to each other. Since there is no window, it can sometimes be, because of the weather, come to surprises.
Das Appartement war sehr sauber und gepflegt, aber für 4 Personen zu klein. Es gab keine Abstellfläche für Koffer und auch wenig Platz für Gewand. Ein großer Vorteil ist, dass man sich jederzeit ein Frühstück oder eine kleine Mahlzeit zubereiten kann und nicht unbedingt gezwungen ist, sich ein Restaurant zu suchen. Wir haben sehr liebe Leute in dem Appartement kennengelernt und es war ein nettes miteinander. Da es kein Fenster gibt, kann es manchmal, wegen des Wetters, zu Überraschungen kommen.
NYC is always fantastic, the apartment was however not. It was either freezing cold or very warm. It wasn't possible to adjust the heat. 2 out of 6 days there was no hot water at all. No hot water = no shower! Several of the wals was not painted and the sofa was compleatly warren out. Full of holes. The entertains and stears is very dirty and the backyard is best described as slum, with thousands of smoked cigarettes laying among other waste. The worst was however all the bird droppings on old air-conditions hanging from the windows in the backyard . We are talking of years without cleaning. 40 ~ 60 cm high "mountains" of bird droppings. And then on top of that the apartment is approx. 50 meters from Manhattan brigde, with a train passing every 2 minutes, 24/7. You can not belive the noise! Manhattan John (Mike) is a nice guy, but this apartment should newer have been rented out to tourists.
Apartment very well located. Friendly neighborhood. Too bad I have not seen the owner. The shower should be reviewed ...
Appartement très bien situé. Quartier sympathique. Dommage que je n'ai pas vu le propriétaire. La douche serait à revoir...
John is a very accommodating host. It is difficult toilet him, understandably, as he is like other New Yorkers, a very busy man.
However, he has a system in place that works. I stayed in this flat for 10 days while looking for jobs, and had many neighbours coming and going without any problems.
The location is a 10/10. Cleanliness 9/10 decor 8/10.. Overall a great bargain for your money.
3 problems I had:
1- Never send mail, wish I knew, but it's really difficult to retrieve mail.
2- Too many people using the shower in the morning. Wake up early. (4-8 ppl)
3-Maintanance needed to be done on the bathroom, but john changed the date for that till after check out.
Overall, I'd stay there again, it was a good experience.
Sexy apartment is not as sexy as touted. We were four adult people in a too small room without a window. At night too hot so the room door had to remain open. There is no space to hang your wet towel, no hooks for coats etc. A small rickety plastic closet to hang a few things. No room to put your bag or briefcase.
The kitchen and bathroom should be shared with, if you're lucky, 7 others!
That's too many people in too small a space.
Shower Floor must be clearly renovated.
Apartment was fairly clean and stands in a friendly street in Little Italy. We have John once seen as upon arrival. The apartment is our very disappointing. New York is not happy.
Het sexy appartement is helaas niet zo sexy als wordt aangeprezen. Wij waren met vier volwassen mensen in een veel te kleine kamer zonder raam. 's Nachts veel te warm waardoor de kamerdeur open moest blijven. Er is geen ruimte om je natte handdoek op te hangen, geen haken voor jassen enz. Een kleine gammele plastic kast om een paar dingen op te hangen. Geen ruimte om je tas of koffer neer te zetten.
De keuken en badkamer moet gedeeld worden met, als je geluk hebt, 7 anderen!
Dat zijn teveel mensen op een te klein oppervlakte.
Douchevloer moet duidelijk gerenoveerd worden.
Appartement was redelijk schoon en staat middenin een vriendelijke straat in little Italy. We hebben John één keer even gezien bij aankomst. Het appartement is ons erg tegengevallen. New York gelukkig niet.
The apartment is equipped the necessary kitchen utensils and new floor covering / interior paint is consistent with renovation, appearance inside clean and tidy. The mattresses must be very old and you hear the springs every time you move in bed. Not used to living in the city the the frequent trains travelling less than a block away on the bridge made sleeping even more difficult. TV reception is poor with an indoor aerial only. Pipes the run from floor to ceiling rattle at times (warm at times ?noise when heating turned on also associated with hissing sound in kitchen). Only one key very difficult with 5 people. Takes a long time to get hot water through the pipes for washing up / shower. (Do not know if any laundry facilities nearby). Need to be fit to carry suitcases up 3 steep flights of stairs.
Great place to stay for a couple. Got everything you need in a nice neighbourhood. Two beds, but no sofa. Close to shops, restaurants, bars and the subway. The beds are a bit squeaky, but you can just put the mattress on the floor and problem solved. The water takes a while getting hot, and by the windows some cold could get in. But the oven makes the temperature nice inside, so not really a problem. Little Italy and Chinatown are both nearby, and the tour bus stops just outside of the apartment. 100 meters to the subway station, and both Subway, Starbucks and McDonalds are all across the street. The owners give you complete control over the apartment, and they also offer you transport to and from the airport. If you are looking for an apartment that is simple and cheap but as well decent and clean you can safely book this one. Reliable owners that do not intrude and they are flexible. Me and my girlfriend will diffidently look to John 123 also the next time we plan to go to New York.
