We were at Michael apartment for three nights and everything was perfect. Very clean and cozy.
Michael takes care of his place and so you feel comfortable in it.
Spotless, spacious apartment, nicely furnished, shared bathroom (bath and shower) with owner and one other room, kitchen fully equipped plus proper coffee machine, genial host. Very convenient for subway, direct line to JFK and 20-30 minutes to downtown Manhattan. Quiet neighbourhood. Recommended!
The place was very clean, beds confortable and easy access to subway. We highly recommend for your stay in NY.
I could not have asked for a better stay. Directions to obtain keys were easy to follow, location was great and nowhere from subway. Michael was an awesome, attentive yet non overbearing host. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.
The description of the room was accurate. The host Michael was really nice, accommodating and answered all of our questions. We did not have a hard time finding his place and we found his place accessible as it is a block away from the subway station which makes the touring around the city very easy.
The room is clean, the mattress is comfortable, there is hot water in the bathroom. The shared kitchen, bathroom and living room is very clean.
Plus points for Michael, the host for allowing us a late check out (7pm) as we have an evening flight. He also helped us carry all our (extremely heavy) luggages to his apartment which we won't be able to manage ourselves.
We drove into NYC for the weekend and this loft room worked great for our family. Our 14-year-old son loved the upper bed, and as we only spent a couple of late evening hours there awake together, the relatively small space was fine. We spent a long rainy(!) day going via subway to restaurant, museum, coffee shop then jazz show and dinner and felt very comfortable being welcomed "home" by Michael at the end of a busy, fun day. We relaxed on his sofa and enjoyed the easy company as we watched some TV.
He runs an organized, efficient ship as far as obtaining keys, rules of the house etc. All very clear and wonderfully clean and quiet- we all slept well. He is a friendly, out-of-the-way yet there-if-you-need-him host. It felt like a private space with occasional companionship.
The A and C line entrance is very close and we found affordable parking nearby. Only downside for us was that we spent our evenings far south (Village) so it was a rather long subway ride home at night, but surprisingly easy connections etc.
Would recommend the room highly, especially if you are interested in visiting the cloisters or other north side attractions as well. Saved us a fair bit over a tiny hotel room midtown.
This home and this room were spotless and comfortable. Michael, the host, answered all of my questions and went out of his way to help me and make my stay pleasant. The place is very convenient to many forms of transportation making it easy to visit all NYC had to offer. I would highly recommend this room and host to anyone looking for a safe, clean and comfortable place in NYC
