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.
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.
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.
Good location, nice room, sharing bathroom. Some days I have to wait for the bathroom. John and Lucy was very helpful and good hosters.
Apartment was in a very handy location. Well presented with everything that you need. Beds aren't the best, but are adequate.
Good value for the money. More chinatown than little Italy. Friendly area. Clean apartment. Good contact with the owner.
Nice appartment, clean, lot of space. We've got the feeling this was not a private appartment, but commercial.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
It was wa bit difficult to arrive inside the apartment, maybe they should change the method... but once inside everithing was good, the apartmend and our room were clean! all rooms were occupied, but it was no problem with the bathroom.
The location in Little Italy is perfect, there are a few subway stations within walking distance.
I thought to meet john but the only contact was by mail or phone. :-)
We spent one week at the appartement. The room is small,but still ok. We were on tour most of the time, why its wasn't important for us. The room and the whole flat is clean. Mike was a very friendly host and helped us, if we needed any information about NY or anything else. We can recommend the appartement and its host.
