Quarto bom e limpo, com banheiro privativo. Boa localização (próximo a 2 estações de subway 137 e 135). Boa recepção do anfitrião.
Nous avons été très bien reçu.
Jorge est très sympathique ainsi que son fils.
Le logement est bien situé près du métro et des autobus pour aller vers la 5ème avenue et Brodway et aussi des commerces ainsi que des restaurants.
Pour y passer plusieues jours est possible surtout que Jorge accepte qu'on utilise sa cuisine pour se faite à manger.
Le rapport prix/qualité est bien placé.
Well first of all I just want to tell my opinion, not to disturb anyone.. We stayed 7 days in Jorge's house, we could meet with him in our last day because he was out of town and his son Gabriel took care of us. It was written light breakfast in the page but we couldn't get anything and there was no bread and cheese even. Apartment building was smelling very bad a
The place and the location are nice, we spent an awesome time in NYC!
Easy access, 30 minutes away from downtown, lots of facilities... Thanks you for hosting us!
I had a really nice stay at Jorge's place. I was received by Gabriel, his son, and he was a perfect host ! Very friendly and willing to help with everything.
The place itself was nice and clean. The room I stayed in was nicely furnished and quite big.
There is a subway station a few minutes away which was really convenient to move around in Manhattan.
I recommend Jorge and Gabriel's place for your stay in NYC !
Jorge and his son Gabriel are god hosts. There is most of the time one of them around and help in order to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
Accueillie par des rats au niveau du local poubelle.
Arrivé à l appartement Jorge nous a demandé un surplus de 20$ et au lieu d avoir 2 chambres nous avons eu une chambre et un canapé dans le salon.
Il y a beaucoup de bruit la nuit, des moustiques, très difficiles de dormir. L appartement est très sale, les draps et les couvertures tachés, le lavabo infect, la douche coule à peine.
Le parking gratuit est dans la rue, résultat impossible de trouver de la place on s'est garé à 1km600.
Il n'y a aucun petit déjeuner "même léger" de proposé.
Bref une expérience catastrophique, je vous invite vraiment à aller voir ailleurs.
Welcomed by rats at the local garbage.
Arriving at the apartment, Jorge asked us for a $ 20 extra and instead of having 2 rooms we got a room and a sofa in the living room.
There is a lot of noise at night, mosquitoes, very hard to sleep. The apartment is very dirty, the sheets and stained blankets, the sink is infect, the shower is barely flowing.
The free parking is in the street, result impossible to find the place you are parking at 1km600.
There is no "even light" breakfast offered.
In short, a catastrophic experience, I really invite you to go see elsewhere.
Jorge is an amazing person who opened his home to me for the night. The room was perfect, comfy bed, cold A/c, private bathroom with shower. The price was unbeatable for Saturday night in Manhattan last minute. Easy communication, no problem with me arriving past midnight. Highly recommended!!
The room was cozy and nicely maintained. Jorge was a great host, I was new to town and he walked me to a nice local restaurant for some great food and drinks. He is a very helpful man. Would love to stay here again.
Jorge était un très bon hôte, son appartement ce situe à côté du métro de la 137th dans un quartier tranquille. La chambre est équipée d'une douche et de toilettes ce qui est un plus.
