Manager very nice. Good location. Apartment was not very clean.
Apartment was in a good location and Kevin was great but the apartment was a lot dirtier than we expected since we had to pay a cleaning fee. Floors were dirty. Had to wear shoes all the time. Furniture was dusty and ledges were dirty. If you need, I have photos.
First and foremost I would like to thank you again for choosing us for accommodations during your stay in New York. I'm always happy to get great reviews and I also feel it's helpful to receive the not so great ones to point out where we fall short. However, on this particular response it must be noted that the guest arrived 4 hours earlier than planned, to avoid incoming torrential rain but only gave me a 20 minutes heads up from the taxi to alert me. I went against my better judgement and granted an early check-in at their request while the apartment was being cleaned. The cleaners did the best they could in a short amount of time. I'm sorry our apartment didn't meet your standards during your stay.
Absolutely lovely place to stay
You could not ask for a more accommodating host. He learned that my flight came in at 6:00 a.m. and instead of having us to wait around until 3:00 p.m. to check in, allowed us to check in upon arrival. Everything you need is there. And spacious, oh my. Not the typical tiny New York one room with kitchen and sleeping quarters squeezed together. There is a hallway, large bedroom, living room, huge closet, mirrors everywhere, full bath, kitchen, a TV in Living room and one in Bedroom with movies galore and it is only 4 blocks from Herald Center. Also, it was clean. While New York is the fun city, it was great coming home to this lovely apartment.
Hello Merria, it was such a pleasure meeting you and Krishner. From the first reservation request and all the way through check-out, it was a great and warm experience. I want thank you for choosing us for accommodations during your stay. Please contact me whenever you're heading back to New York City. I'd love to host your stay again. Until the next time, take care.
Terrific Condo with exceptional service! Close to Javits
Kevin's condo is the perfect alternative to staying in a hotel in NYC. By New York standards, this condo is huge! It is beautifully decorated and has just about anything you could need during your stay. The kitchen is also fully stocked down to a wine key and much more. Plenty of extra towels, pillows, blankets, etc.. Netflix and cable on television with flat screens in both the living room and bedroom. Bathroom can be entered from the bedroom as well as the living room for maximum privacy if needed. Kevin was the perfect host. Excellent communication and very accommodating to our needs and special request. Super easy to work with and made the process of renting his condo painless. The location is outstanding especially to Javits which is about a block and a half away. We took train into Penn Station from Newark airport (30 minute ride) and was able to walk directly to condo in about 5-10 minutes. Without a doubt will be staying here for our next visit to New York!
Thank you Stephanie for the great review! I'm really glad you enjoyed your time in the apartment and it worked well for your stay. For people who are familiar with the average size of a NYC hotel room, they really appreciate the size of the condo when they stay with us. I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with the pristine condition you left the apartment in when you checked out. I'm looking forward to seeing you again during your next visit to the Big Apple. I really appreciate you for choosing our place and also taking the time to write this fantastic review. Take care until we meet again.
Very clean and centrally located to everything
We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to NYC! It was everything we expected and more. Kevin is great and offered lots of ideas for places to visit. We highly recommend!!
Hello Tina, I want to thank the 4 of you again for being such great guests. I'm glad you had a great stay and I hope that means you'll be visiting the Big Apple in the future. Take care and be well.
Great place- Great communication- Amazing bed!
We had a great stay. The apartment is huge and has everything we needed. The bed is lovely and soft. Good location only a 5 min walk to the nearest subway and a good few pubs, restaurants and convenience stores around. Kevin was kind enough to let us leave our bags all day after check out before our evening flight. Would recommend. Thanks again.
Honestly the property is much more run down than the pictures appear. One of the reasons I chose this property was because of the reviews. We were disappointed when we arrived at the apartment. The bathroom needs a complete over haul. From the dirty walls and baseboards to the moldy grout in the shower to the leaky stinky toilet and then the holes and patches on the ceiling. I am not a clean freak by any stretch, but I feel that when I am paying for accommodations, I expect them to be in acceptable clean condition. The rest of the apartment was clean. I also would only recommend small children sleep on the pull out sofa. The foam is very thin. The location of the apartment worked very well for us. We walked to the Empire State Building even. It did not take us long to go in any direction. Kevin is a very personable and responsive property manager. He provided a lot of good information to us. We saw a lot of attractions in New York and had a great time!
We are always open to constructive criticism when it comes to making sure you have an enjoyable experience while staying at our place. That is the reason we have many repeat guests year after year. I was a bit surprised to receive this rating because we spoke about the bathroom ceiling and I explained about the issue from the apartment above which was beyond our control. While it's true there was a patch, I thought it would have been better to have the ceiling repaired after the stay to avoid the maintenance and dust during the 4 day vacation. It was stated that the photos didn't reflect the property accurately, but the only difference is that we've upgraded from the futon to a queen pullout. Nevertheless, I'm glad I got the chance to meet with you again at check out to find that the 4 of you had a great time in the city. Thanks again for the constructive criticism and allowing us to host.
