Reviews of this property
Apartment functional and properly equipped. Special thanks for waiting for our arrival when we were stuck in traffic jams. The only thing that bothered us a bit was a damp smell in the bedroom. The apartment could also be a little cleaner. Besides that, all ok.
10 days in the South Bronx, close to Harlem, to a subway station with several Express trains, to a huge store market (Bronx Market Place), facilities like Seven-Eleven, Burgers, Italian Restaurant, mobile phone shop nearby. A german-brazilian family of four persons visiting the „Big Apple“.
The appartment is situated in a quiet street with neighbours who obviously are interested in a safe and quiet neighbourhood. To underline it most of them put an information plate in the entrance. On the evening of our arrival Grover sent Stephanie to greet us and to show us the appartment. Kitchen and living room are shared spaces but most of the time the permanent residents of the house didn’t make use of it. There is a wifi internet connection but not with the same power in all rooms.
We enjoyed to be in NYC without staying in the middle of Manhattan, always busy. By subway downtown the northern Central Park was only 12 min away. A bit more than half an hour to reach lower Manhattan. Uptown we went to the NY Botanical Garden and Little Italy of the Bronx. Unfortunately we hadn’t enough time to visit the Bronx Zoo. Sometimes we used the bus, not expensive when you buy a metro card unlimited rides for one week.
The rooms were as clean as showed on the fotos. Little problems has been solved in a short delay. In spite of the fantastic fall weather it was a bit cold inside, the heating was not yet installed. So we used the mobile heaters for the „warm up“. One bed was noisy when moving on it. In summary I think we were very lucky having chosen this appartment north to Manhattan.
We felt very well cared for at the property of Grover! Everything was as described: There are two rooms in Soutterain (basement) with a bathroom in between. And in between is still a small room, which is inhabited by a really nice young man (but almost never been there). Kitchen and living room (1st floor) are large and as shown on the pictures. Everything was very clean! Despite communal use!
On 2nd floor there is another nice room (for up to 4 people) that although our time was not rented and another nice lodger (who was also almost never there).
The location is really super cheap location to the metro and we could park our car right outside the door.
Do not fear the Bronx! The environment was really nice and peaceful!
Wir haben uns in der Unterkunft von Grover sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt! Alles war wie beschrieben: Es sind zwei Räume im Soutterain (Tiefparterre) mit einem Bad dazwischen. Und dazwischen ist auch noch ein kleines Zimmer, das von einem wirklich netten jungen Mann bewohnt wird (ist aber fast nie da gewesen). Küche und Wohnzimmer (im 1. Stock) sind groß und wie auf den Bildern abgebildet. Alles war sehr sauber! Trotz gemeinschaftlicher Nutzung!
Im 2. Stock gibt es noch ein weiteres schönes Zimmer (für bis zu 4 Personen), dass allerdings zu unserer Zeit nicht vermietet war und einen weiteren netten Untermieter (der auch fast nie da war).
Die Lage ist wirklich supergünstig zur Metro gelegen und unser Auto konnten wir direkt vor der Tür parken.
Keine Angst vor der Bronx! Die Umgebung war wirklich sehr nett und friedlich!
I recently relocated to NYC and needed a quick place to stay until my apartment was ready. The room was comfortable and clean, and so was the bathroom. Not to mention, I felt safe walking around the neighborhood. The local people were all very helpful.
Though I did not meet Grover, he was available and responded in a timely manner via phone and email to answer all my questions. The apartments location is 1 block away from the 2, 4 and 5 trains, which is convenient if you need to go further uptown, into Manhattan or Brooklyn. And it's also a quick train ride if you're looking to get to Time Square Square.
There is a Target a few blocks away if you need to grab toiletries, snacks, etc. The only drawback is that food options are a little slim if you're interested in eating healthy. However, it wouldn't impact my decision on staying here again.
A great experience, I highly recommend if you're visiting the NYC!
The house is a big brownstone located in a nice neighborhood in the Bronx section, very close to Yankee Stadium, with a subway stop right around the corner. It only took about 15 to 20 minutes to get there from midtown. I decided to stay here instead of a regular hotel to get a home away from home feel. I defiantly got my wish!
The interior is beautifully furnished, elegant and cozy. My room was very spacious, noise free, with a comfortable bed. It’s safe to say you will get a good night’s sleep. Everything from top to bottom was very clean, bathroom spotless! The people in neighborhood were very nice. Two different people said good morning as walk right down the street to a nearby dinner for breakfast. An extra bonus!!!
The owner is such a sociable and warm host, and will go to great lengths to make sure you're comfortable! He can also give you recommendations on restaurants and other activities in the area. What a great stay!!!
Great place to stay! Clean room (linens/towels), which is extremely important for me. Very nice, updated kitchen & bathroom. Very quiet home; never knew or heard anyone else in the home unless there was a chance meeting in the kitchen. :-) Quick walk (less than 5 mins) to subway and direct ride into Manhattan on the 4 or 2 train. Felt comfortable walking from the subway at night.
Reviews for this host's other properties
Very good welcome when we arrived the apartment late in the evening. The apartment is large and enough space for the 5 of us. Nice street that was decorated for Halloween. Short walk to the Subway that took us downtown in 20 minutes. The only ‘but’ is that the apartment was not very clean.
The flat is fine as long as you don’t need to reach the host for something going wrong.
In our case (we spent 8 days), we had a bad (or none) internet connection the whole time.
The big issue here is that we couldn’t reach the owner the day we arrived and the whole next day. I ended up with a high phone bill because I had to use my own mobile phone from abroad. Eventually they fixed it, it worked for a few hours and then nothing. The connection was on and off the whole time. We must have had a connection a total of 4 days. The ladies occupying the flat downstairs had the same issue (same owner).
What frustrated me most is how nice and available the owner seemed to be in the emails leading to the trip but once we got in NY there was nobody on the other end of the line. The owner told that they are not a hotel therefore I should not expect them to be available all the time. I had full silence for hours! He also told me that I shouldn’t let a bad connexion or lack thereof ruin my trip! I am sorry but 1) I paid for a flat with wifi 2) I decide what is important for me and as a traveler I rely A LOT on the internet to plan my activities and find my way around a city I don’t know.
That was my experience.
We have a fantastic family enjoyed our visit to New York from our temporary home in Harlem. Everything was perfectly fine, contacts with landlord Grover, air conditioning, clean, fully equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, metro and supermarket around the corner and all at a great price. We had five of us access to five two beds on three floors. And if I still need a little less positive report that was that two of the beds were quite hard and that only a few TV channels did. But we also did not really watching tv .....
We hebben met de hele familie fantastisch genoten van ons bezoek aan New York vanuit onze tijdelijke thuisbasis in Harlem. Alles was dik in orde, contacten met huisbaas Grover, airco, schoon, volledig uitgeruste keuken, wasmachine, wasdroger, metro en supermarkt om de hoek en dat alles voor een prima prijs. Wij hadden met zijn vijven de beschikking over vijf twee persoonsbedden verdeeld over drie verdiepingen. En als ik dan toch nog iets minder positiefs moet melden dat was het dat twee van de bedden nogal hard lagen en dat slechts een paar tv-zenders het deden. Maar we kwamen ook niet echt voor het tv kijken.....
Nice apartment, individually decorated and great location. Features comprehensive, there was everything you need. We (2 women) have at any time felt safe in Harlem. Basically, even if clean. The toilets could be a bit better cleaned completely. If you do not like to sleep rather than duvet cover with flat sheet, one would have to bring sheets (oversize). Towels etc all there.
Nice reception, even with a bottle of wine in the fridge. And Wi-Fi works well.
Nette Wohnung, individuell eingerichtet und prima gelegen. Ausstattung umfassend, alles da was man braucht. Wir (2 Frauen) haben uns jederzeit in Harlem sicher gefühlt. Grundsätzlich auch soweit sauber. Die Toilette könnte ein bisschen besser rundum geputzt werden. Wenn man es nicht mag mit Überschlaglaken anstatt Bettbezug zu schlafen, müsste man sich Bettwäsche (Übergröße) mitbringen. Handtücher etc alles da.
Netter Empfang, sogar mit einer Flasche Wein im Kühlschrank. Und WLAN funktioniert auch.
