Nicely situated appartement but in bad neighborhood.
Appartement self is on groundfloor which doesn't help night rest and definetly not make you feel secure.
Bathroom is awful!
Apartment near central park and the subway line 6 (very handy). Spacious kitchen + Host welcoming and available when needed. To conclude a great value / location / price.
Appartement proche de central park et du métro ligne 6 (très pratique).
chambre spacieuse + cuisine aménagée
Hôte accueillant et disponible en cas de besoin. Pour conclure un très bon rapport qualité / emplacement / prix.
We enjoyed the stay in this apartment. Ibrahim is a great host, he's always there for you when you need him. We had the whole apartment only for us this week. First you need to get used to the neighbourhood 'east harlem' a little, but after a couple a days you are acclimatized. Manhattan is awesome!
My friends and I stayed in the apartment for a week. Everything went fine and the apartment is good value for money. It is large (definitely big enough for 4 people!), it is cleaned regularly and it turned out to be the way it is decribed here. The neighbourhood is nice as well: the next subway station, a big supermarket and restaurants are nearby.
Ibrahim is very nice and open-minded. We had a really great time in New York City!
We were in New York in April 2012 and had booked the room at Mr. Malick. WE have no idea how it is possible that there may be positive reviews for this property. The apartment was completely chaotic, the whole bedding was stained and the pungent smell of stale sweat which testified that the entire bedding never came in contact with detergent. The worst was the bathroom. Tub, shower curtain and joints were completely infested by mold. WE had our short term a new hotel which led to significant increases in costs. Mr. Malick was not willing to refund the price back. However, it must be said that the team was very friendly and accommodating Wimdu, our case is accepted very quickly and the costs reimbursed completely. We were in April, 2012 in New York and had booked the room with Mr. Malick. We have no notion like it is possible that there can be positive assessments for this lodging. The flat was completely chaotic, the whole bedclothes were blotchy and the penetrating smell after old sweat testified of the fact that the whole bedclothes never got into contact with detergent. The worst one was the bath. Tub, joints and shower curtain were completely struck by mold. At short notice we had to book a new hotel to us what led to Considerable add-on costs. Mr. Malick was not ready to refund the price. However, it must be said that the team of Wimdu was very friendly and obliging, took care of our case very fast for us and refunded the costs completely.
Wir waren im April 2012 in New York und hatten das Zimmer bei Mr. Malick gebucht. WIr haben keine Ahnung wie es möglich ist, dass es positive Bewertungen für diese Unterkunft geben kann. Die Wohnung war komplett chaotisch, die gesamte Bettwäsche war fleckig und der penetrante Geruch nach altem Schweiß zeugte davon, dass die gesamte Bettwäsche noch nie mit Waschmittel in Berührung kam. Das schlimmste war das Bad. Wanne, Fugen und Duschvorhang waren komplett von Schimmel befallen. WIr mussten uns kurzfristig ein neues Hotel buchen was zu erheblichen Zusatzkosten führte. Mr. Malick war nicht bereit, den Preis zurück zu erstatten. Hingegen muss gesagt werden, dass das Team von Wimdu sehr freundlich und kulant war, sich unserem Fall sehr schnell annahm und uns die Kosten komplett erstattete.

Well, everything went with Wimdu. The Apt. However, Messi was a flat and not habitable. So, the offer was consistent with the reality do not match! The hosts, however, found that everything was in order and clean.
Mit WIMDU lief alles Bestens.
Das Apt. allerdings war eine Messi Wohnung und nicht bewohnbar.
Also, die Offerte stimmte mit der Realität nicht überein!
Die Gastgeber fanden allerdings, es sei alles in Ordnung und sauber.
Good Location of Apartment, had everything we needed.
Only criticisms would be that the alarm went off CONSTANTLY all night but when you are that tired you don't notice it. And also neighbour up above- seemed to be up all night moving furniture and at times it seemed almost like jumping off the furniture.
I was a little worried because of comment that there is no heating. As I enter the house Ibrahim showed me the thermostat so I basically controlled heating. Very neat and clean place. I highly recommend Ibrahim's place. It is huge- very private and he is a real gentleman. An old time friend met me in NY and decided to stay over, Ibrahim was so gracious did not even charge extra. What a lovely stay.
This was my second stay with Ibrahim. Last time I has stayed at his other apartment in the same building. I was a little concerned because of a comment about heating but as I entered the apartment I saw a thermostat that I control to change heat. There were also extra heaters in the room so no problem with heating inside the apartment. Outside in the city it was cold .. brrrr.. but my stay was perfect. Didn't get to meet Ibrahim this time as he was out of town but key was in the lock box and had no problem. I travel for business and this was my second Wimdu experience. From now on wherever I go I am using Wimdu. Hope all hosts are like Ibrahim :-)
It was not good at all! We had booked one week in December but only stayed three nights because:
1. It was cold and the first night we had only one blanket! The host told us we should ask for another blanket at the neighbors. They were home the next day!
2. It got freezing cold in our room and the tiny heater turned itself off every 2 hours.
3. We tried to contact the host (we never saw him around) but couldn't reach him so we got ourselves a nice and warm B&B. After we contacted wimdu and booked the B&B, the heating was working but too late for us!
In total: 3 bad nights (sleeping in our warmest clothes) for a lot of money we don't even get back!
Oh, additionally we didn't like the very noisy neighbor above (moving furniture at 6 in the morning), and the mould on the shower curtain...
