    I really love this family! They were so kind and taked care of me. I had a great stay at your place, you gave me so many useful advice and we had nice conversation! Everything was clean and fully prepared when I arrived. And Serge gave me a cup of hot tea everyday when I got home, cuz it was so freezing outside. I am just sorry that I couldn’t say goodbye to your wife and daughter when leaving. I hope to see you someday in US or Japan!!! Thank you so much :)

    Serge and his family are very kind and friendly people. Their house is in a quite and safe neighborhood, only 5 minutes walk from the subway (7 min to WTC) and many restaurants. The room is really cosy and comfortable! We stayed for 6 nights and would have stayed much longer. Thank you again!!! On our next trip to NY, we´ll stay with you again :)

    A pleasant Homestay! The beds are good, the room is good and it's a calm and charmy neighbourhood. If I'm going back to NY, this is the place to stay. Best regards Jonas
