Reviews of this property
We were nine nights as guests here. Apartment was very clean, bed was good and we slept well. AC we used very little, it was not too hot during our stay. We felt that area is safe.
You can walk in 5 minutes to shop where to buy food. And many small markets are nearby. We just had light breakfast in the apartment.
Apartment was quiet, I guess that in more centralized location there is always some noise coming from emergency vehicles.
Being in 151th street was not a problem for us. Metro (A express train) takes you in 15-20 minutes to downtown.
Walking to 145th street metro station takes 5-10 minutes.
If you don’t mind this 30 minutes time to reach downtown, I could really recommend this flat.
Sophia was away most of our stay, so we could use apartment as our own. Of course we also were out most of the time and just slept in the apartment.
But Sophia was asking daily if everything is ok.
Apartment is easy to reach from JFK by AirTrain ($5) + Metro ($2,75) + 1$ for reusable metro card. (Or buy directly 7-Day Unlimited metro ticket $31.00)
Just take Air Train to Howard Beach station and from there Express train A directly to 145th street.
This takes around 1,5 hours. I don’t know how long taxi would take.
And we really felt like being friends. I could recommend this flat.
Highlights in Finnish below.
Eli asunto oli siisti ja rauhallinen, ei paljon kuulunut ambulanssien ääniä kuten muualla kaupungissa koko ajan. Ympäristö vaikutti turvalliselta. Kadulla meihin ei kiinnitetty mitään huomiota.
Puoli tuntia menee keskustaan, ja ainakin JFK kentältä pääsee kätevästi metrolla perille saakka.
Sophia oli tosi ystävällinen.
This was my first experience with Wimdu and staying at Sophia´s was the best experience I could have ever had. The apartment is such that you can see in the photographs, Sophia is a very warm and welcoming person, makes you feel at home all the time, she helps you when you need it and always respects your privacy. The apartment is in a quiet, peppy American-style area but when you're inside you can relax and sleep at night without any noise at all. The subway stop is just 8 minutes walking and connects you to downtown Manhattan in about 15 or 20 min. Thanks for everything Sophia and be sure our next stay in new york will be at your home.
Disadvantage is the owner requires vegan cooking + sitting room and kitchen are shared. But that was mentioned and we knew that.
We were lucky the owner was away so we had the whole apartment for ourselves. It's spacious and fitted with everything you need.
Less positive: it's a very warm apartment without balcony or terrace. The barely working airco in the bedroom, the TV with very limited networks (only NYC) on it.
But Sophia is very helpful and connection to Manhattan is ok (30 min metro).
We have a really great time in New York City.
We got a very warm opening by Sophia.
She was always helpful and gave us many Informations.
I lost my camera and she was so helpful (y) i did´t get it back, but we try.
Hope to come back, for another great stay in NYC
A very nice room and a very nice lady. Lots of tips about New York from a insider. Not far from the A-train and shops aroubd the corner. To downtown in tweny minutes.
We very much enjoyed staying at the apartment. We did really feel like being a 'New Yorker' because we did get a lot of 'inside'-information from our hosts. That's why we prefered B&B over Hotels and it did meet our expectations. We alse liked the neighbourhood and the many small but surpringly good local restaurants.
We stayed for 9 nights in this appartment. Everything was clean and Sophia was verry nice to us. We are really enjoyed staying at this place. The neighbourhood is good and has some nice restaurants and breakfast places nearby. Subway is 10 minutes walking away. We will come back - for sure!!! Thanks to Sohpia!
Sophia's apartment was nice and cosy. We could use the kitchen any time we wanted, the bathroom and the bedroom were clean and comfortable, the bedroom silent. We slept well during our stay in N.Y.
The location of the apartment was very OK for us. It isn't situated right in the center of Manhattan but with the subway from the station on the W 145 th Street
( express ) we could get anywhere in Manhattan very easily. Upper Broadway is very near to the apartment and there are many bars and restaurants. We liked also the nearby park and sportsfield where we could practise our morning joggings. Great!
Our hostess Sophia is sympatic, friendly, lovely and helpful, and international, too, speaks many languages and gets along with different kind of people.
We surely can recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to stay in N.Y. at reasonable price. We give five stars and 10 points.
