    Linda is such a wonderful, warm - hearted person. She made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel comfortable at her home, which almost felt like ours as well!
    She took care of my cousin when she had been ill and had great advices.
    We'll definitely be back!

    Grazie mille per tutto, soprattutto per l'ultima serata che é stata bellissima! Sei un angelo ♥️ Ci mancherai! A presto Chany & Alena

    This review is very late as I don’t use computers very much and simply forgot to do . I had no problems staying at Linda’s,I wasn’t in much as I travelled each day but she was always polite and the apartment and bedroom were very clean. I seem to remember I did something like use kitchen and it wasn’t allowed or something like that but she simply told me and at the end of the day this was my fault and I wasn’t used to travelling with home stay but thank you Linda , Chris from england

    Leider war sie am ersten Abend nicht zur verabredeten Zeit zu Hause, sodass wir schon ziemlich Panik hatten, alleine in New York gestrandet zu sein.
    Das Zimmer war sehr groß und schön, das Frühstück eher karg.
    Am letzten Tag wurden wir morgens um 8 mehr oder weniger rausgeschmissen, weil sie arbeiten musste und den Raum vor unserer Abreise kontrollieren wollte - das konnte ich nicht so ganz verstehen und man hätte es auf jeden Fall von vornherein kommunizieren müssen (am besten schon auf der Website, dann bucht man demnächst keinen Abendflug).

    Linda ci ha fatto scoprire Harlem,ci ha dato tante preziose informazioni e ci ha avvivinato alla vita vera della gente,non quella turistica... con la metro vicino a casa siamo andati ovunque. Quartiere tranquillo..a dispetto di quello che la gente pensa di Harlem.. Linda è una gran persona,parla molto bene l'italiano ed è gentile e disponibile. Consiglio vivamente questa soluzione x alloggiare a NY,economica e fuori dal caos del centro. Grazie Linda!!!

    She was so nice and friendly till the last day.
    Last day morning she acted un normally
    She wanted me to leave the apartment immediately at 8am
    She started to shout and throw my things out the door
    and then she called the police, when they came, after one minute, the nice policemen understood the situation and told me with a smile... welcome to NYC :)

    We had a wonderful time in New York- big part of it was to stay at Linda's: great aroma of Lavazza coffee in the morning and warm chats in evenings.
    A room was comfy and clean and we felt like at home- I highly recommend Linda.
    Thank you, Linda!

    I had great time with Linda and her apartment during my vacation. She is very sweet, wonderful woman. She made me very comfortable and provided what I needed. Room that I stayed, bathroom, and living room were very clean, cute, tidy, and beautiful. I definitely recommend staying her apartment!

    Super convenient location for NY City transport, I booked in need of a close place to stay when working in Midtown Manhattan.
    A nice quiet apartment, a clean room and a lovely host - many thanks!
