Accueil pas très agréable : j'ai du récupérer les clés ailleurs dans Manhattan auprès d'une amie de Kate très peu conciliante, et me rendre seule à l'appartement, sans information préalable de l'étage, ou du fonctionnement de l'appartement. Il est très bien situé pour un voyage d'affaire et le quartier est sur et calme. En revanche, l'appartement est extrêmement sombre, la douche n'est pas agréable et il est un peu éloigné des attractions touristiques.
Kate was very welcoming, and (because my plane was late) we could actually meet. She took the time to introduce me to the neighbourhood and make me feel comfortable and "at home". The flat is quiet and has everything I needed. The area is midtown east - lots of restaurants, shops - everything you need, really. Handy for the UN. A few blocks to subway, etc.
Cozy and comfortable second floor walk-up located near plenty of good restaurants and bars. I met Kate at check in at the building entrance. She was very helpful, carrying one of my bags up the steps. Once inside, Kate showed me around and provided a list of good places to eat nearby. The two air conditioning units worked well as there were a few sweltering days the week I stayed.
Kate apartment is great, the location is very convenient if you like to walk or take subway; the house is on the busy street, but there is zero noise at the apartment. Photos are very accurate - the apartment is decent in size, with nice living room, bathroom is in good condition with good water pressure. And most of all Kate is wonderful, very hospitable host!
I have only the best to say about Kate as a host and her hospitality. She was extremely helpful from the very arrival until the check out. During my stay she was always available to help us with advice, tips and anything that we asked. The apartment is at an excellent location in the middle of Manhattan, walking distance from all the major attractions. The size of the place is suitable for one or two persons, but an additional guest can easily be accommodated on the couch. All the utensils, dishes, toiletries and extra bedding were at our disposal. I can only recommend Kate's place as an excellent choice for a great stay in NY!
I cannot fault Kate as a host at all. She was extremely friendly, responded to all my queries straight away and was very attentive. Upon arrival Kate met me at the apartment and helped carry my bags. Something to note if you have heavy bags - the apartment is on the second floor with no lift but this was absolutely fine. The images do reflect the appearance of the apartment however as other guests have noticed - it is often quite dark. We also had a slight issue with the keys every time we entered and exited the building - the keys were extremely stiff so we spent a good 5 minutes every time trying to open the doors which at times was really frustrating. One other issue we came across was that we found 2 huge cockroaches in the apartment during our stay. I fully appreciate due to the humidity and weather in NYC at the time, this is a common problem and as soon as I let Kate know she came round immediately with bug spray and organised someone to come out and take a look at the problem. Kate was extremely apologetic about this situation and advised this has never been an issue before. However I have stayed in the city many times before when the weather has been above 30 degrees and I have never come across any bugs like this. Although the apartment was clean, it is very 'well lived in'. I wouldn't describe it as modern at all but the location is great and easily accessible to everything. We stayed for the Gov Ball Music Festival so we were really close to the ferry and you can walk to pretty much everywhere - there are also some great places to eat and drink nearby and Union Square is a really nice walk only 40 minutes away.
