Great !

It was a great week in New York. No complaints about the apartment that matched the announcement. No noise problems and the metro is close to the apartment. Galo Manobanda and his mother are very welcoming.

Absolutely Worth Taking A Chance!

  • 5 of 5

We were worried about going out of our comfort zone and trying out an apartment instead of a hotel but after I weighed the pros and cons in regards to space and parking I cancelled our hotel reservations and reserved this apartment. It was a great decision!! We had no problem with parking on the street and it was free so that saved us hundreds of dollars in comparison with the city parking. When we were met to get keys the owners showed us around the apartment and explained which keys fit which locks. They had a great system so there was no guessing and three different locked doors so we felt secure. They showed us around the area and how to get to the subway which was just a short 5 minute walk. The neighborhood felt plenty safe and we had no issues, even late at night. The apartment had everything we would have needed to cook but we really only utilized the mini-fridge because we weren't there much except to sleep and shower. The apartment had two decent sized beds and a futon bed, a couch, dining area, and an air mattress if needed. It was well supplied with towels, extra bedding, etc. it is a lower level apartment and the neighbors upstairs were very noisy but I knew that when I booked and the owners informed us of this upon check-in, even supplying a large container of soft ear plugs if needed but honestly we were so tired by bedtime we weren't bothered. That definitely would not discourage me from staying again. It was a great experience and much more personal than a hotel. There are stores really close around for grocery items. I am 100% pleased with our stay and would completely recommend. Thanks so much for having a great place for first time New York visitors to feel welcome:)

Great place for the price, interior is super clean.. superb. Thank you Galo and Teresa

  • 5 of 5

l have to say that Galo and his mother Teresa were great to us. We had some special request and they were able to help us out with them. I also note that they provided everything anyone would need, for example they stocked the apartment with lots of toilet paper, towels, sheets, blankets.... They have a Smart TV hooked up with Netflix, YouTube, and other apps which made the little time we spent in the apartment very comfortable . The inside was super clean and very well kept up. I can honestly say that I could not write a bad review about the inside of the home.

When we first arrived at the apartment, we were a little nervous, since we live in a small town in Florida, we are not used to the big city and the surroundings looked a little sketchy. We were worried about how it would be for us to walk at night and if our cars would be ok at night. So I expressed my concerns to Galo and Teresa and they assured me that I wouldn't have any problems. They even walk me around the area, even showed me where to catch the subway and where to get some good food to eat, all within a block and a half away. That made me feel safer, then that same night we went to the city and came home late at night. When you get off the train there is a convenience store there so we decided to stop and get a couple of things. We notice a couple of police officer there so we started to talk to them and to ask them if the place was safe and if we needed to worry about anything. He told us that its as safe as any other place in the city. That there were certain precautions we needed to take for example not to be texting and or talking on the phone when walking late at night because it draws attention to you. To make sure we are alert and to make sure we didn't go out alone, to try to stay out in a group. He told us that as long as we follow these precaution we didn't need to worry. He also assured us that the area gets patrolled a lot to not worry. With that being said every night we stayed in New York, we stayed out late and we never encounter any problems, we saw a lot of single women walking which assured us a lot. We also never had any problems with our cars.

The only negative I would say is that since its in an apartment complex you can hear all things going on around you, specially from above you can hear all foot steps.

Personally we had a Great time in New York , and it was great place to relax after long hours in the city. I will definitely stay there again.

Loved our stay here

  • 5 of 5

Place was very well maintained and private. Host are very accommodating and friendly. The location is ideal because it is about a block away from the subway station. You will not regret your stay here.

I would have liked to give 5 stars

  • 3 of 5

The place itself is very lovely and accurate in the description, but the problem is right above our room is a church. In the mornings you will hear people running around and making a lot of noise. On Sunday we where awoken to sound of the actual church sermon. Also on the ride over the taxi cab driver told us not to go out at night because the area is dangerous. I never really felt that I was in danger. It is close the subway but that noise in the morning is what killed me.

Owner's Response: Most importantly, as with all my many tenants, this reviewer found my apartment lovely and accurately described. The noise is only on Sundays - because the church only meets on Sundays - and the church (which is next door and NOT in my building), starts the sermon at 12:00 noon. The tenant did not see any danger, because there is none!), and the comment about the taxi driver saying the area is dangerous is simply incorrect. Possibly many years ago the area was said to be dangerous, but not since I've owned the property for over six years. The area has become gentrified and like much of Brooklyn, the area has benefitted from the Brooklyn renaissance. All my many prior tenants have loved the apartment and their stay.
