Anna is a great host, with helpful advice on the best ways to travel, sights to see etc. Her apartment is conveniently located between two subway stations (a 5/10 min walk). It is very clean & tidy, with a guest toilet next to the bedroom. While full cooking facilities are provided in Anna's kitchen, you may prefer to eat instead in some of the great restaurants nearby! Thank you Anna for helping to make our trip a truly memorable experience!
Anna est une personne accueillante et très agréable. Nous avons passé un super moment chez elle et également deux belles soirées avec elle et Oscar.... Elle nous a mises à l’aise tout de suite et également donné des conseils pour le métro, shopping.... Son appartement est super agréable et bien situé par rapport aux moyens de transports. Merci Anna et tu es la bienvenue chez nous!
Our stay at Anna’s has been just great. The place is very cozy and there’s really everything you might need. Anna’s been very helpful since the beginning by sending us directions in order to get to her place by using public transport and all throughout our stay; also looked up for the quickest way to get to the airport for our departure. She also provided us with everything we might want for breakfast in the morning. She’s very easy going and interesting to talk with. The place is in Harlem, not too close to downtown but well connected and that makes moving through the city very easy. We definitely recommend and wouldn’t hesitate to come back in the future.
Ps: Oscar is the cutest dog ever.
Anna hat uns in ihrer blitzsauberen Wohnung sehr herzlich empfangen. Auch ihren kleinen Hund Oskar haben wir ins Herz geschlossen, er wird uns abgehen.
Zum Frühstück hat es alles gegeben, was benötigt wird und Anna ist auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen.
Wir haben sehr viele hilfreiche Tipps und Vorschläge von ihr bekommen.
Die Wohngegend ist sehr sicher und wir haben uns auch nachts immer wohlgefühlt.
Neben zahlreichen Einkaufs- und Verpflegungsmöglichkeiten, gibt es in der nähe der Wohnung
eine sehr gute U-bahn- und Busverbindung in die Stadt.
Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei Anna bleiben und sind sehr froh über den Aufenthalt. Danke!
Bel posto, comodo come metropolitana,proprietaria molto disponibile e gentile
Our stay with Anna was wonderful. Nothing bad to say. We recommend it.
The best wishes for you Anna!
We enjoyed our stay in Anna's apartment a lot. A clean room and a small bathroom of our own. Anna also showed great hospitality, showing us around, giving good advice on what to see, etc.
Dziękuję Annie za wspaniałą serdeczną gościnę. Bardzo dobrze i swobodnie czuliśmy się u niej, zawsze służyła chętnie pomocą. Mile będe wspominać wspólne zakupy i spacer po mieście. Mieszkanie jest czyste, praktyczne i ma dobrą lokalizację nie daleko metra. Śniadanko co dzien pyszne, müsli i różnego rodzaju pieczywo. Wszystko na duży plus. Pozdrawiamy Marta , Lukasz i Michelle
