Karen and Faruk, the hosts, were very nice and helpful. From the booking arrangements with changing of dates they were ok.
The apartment location is very good as far as commerce and subway are concerned. But as it is at the same level and adjoint to a Long Island Expressway flyover, the noise of trucks and cars was quite audible from midnight to 6 AM despite the double glazing. Not for light sleepers.
The building is very well kept with nice and helpful doormen. The parking space was also handy. The apartment and bedding were clean upon our arrival. A couple of towels missing upon arrival were quickly delivered after hosts were contacted. A few items at apartment already show signs of aging and would need a bit of mending and attention (e.g. cutlery drawer, balcony door lock, small sofa seat cushions, front door hard to open and close, cockroaches visits during the night).
We had an overall very pleasant stay there. Would we be willing to return? Yes, for sure.
