Stayed here with my son for roughly two weeks in December and have nothing but good things to say about our time here. The property is as advertised in the photos, very comfortable of high quality, well placed in terms of transportation and in a neighborhood with easy access to everything from groceries to bakeries, sit down cafes and commercial shopping. Edgar and Suzanne are welcoming and gracious hosts, always accessible to respond to even the smallest of requests. The only small downside was the lack of a washing machine. Not a problem for short stays but nice to have if your in town for an extended period, especially during the winter (although there are laundromats within walking distance of the apartment). Would not hesitate to book this jewel again! Thanks Edgar and Suzanne.
This stylish, spacious, and conveniently-located flat has an additional plus: thoughtful, well-organized, and responsive owners. A few egs. Thoughtful: we stayed for Christmas, and the apartment was decorated with a little tree and other festive touches that made a home-away-from home for my family to visit; a large welcome basket and beverages in the fridge were much appreciated. Well-organized: the choose-your-number keypad entry was the easiest to access of many vacation rentals we've experienced; the housekeeper for the flat came mid-stay to empty the rubbish bin, so important with holiday meals, wrapping paper etc. filling up the bins quickly. Responsive: Having had problems with heat systems in other rental flats, I inquired ahead about how to work it at Precious Jewel. Suzanne responded promptly with good directions, and Edgar, who came over to welcome us set the heat to our desired temp. We were nice and warm throughout our stay, despite the serious cold snap outside.
Note, too, that everything works (TV, kitchen stuff); the lighting is excellent, never a given in rentals in our experience; and spacious means there was ample room for our granddaughter's present (a princess palace she could stand in) and five adults to celebrate.
Lovely place with responsive and reliable hosts
Suzanne and Edgar make you feel very welcome in their great place. We arrived to a very full basket with snacks for us and everything we could need. They are extremely nice and responsive and are just next door in case you need anything. The apartment is lovely and we loved the location, we were visiting friends in Astoria and it's a lovely neighbourhood. Good to know - the place has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, it can fit 6 with two extra in the living room but the setup for the extra 2 is an aerobed. We were going to come with 6 but my two 15-17 year old nephews decided last minute not to come and we were kind of glad because that would have been tighter than we expected ahead of time. So I would say for a family with two not too big people who can share an aerobed 6 would be fine, but for two extra big people do realize the setup. For 4 it was absolutely fantastic and would hands down recommend!! Thank you Suzanne and Edgar!
Amazing place in an Amazing neighborhood!!
I loved my stay at the precious jewel of Astoria! The host were great and very helpful, the neighborhood friendly and quite, and the apartment clean and spacious. I could not have imagined a better place to stay for the price! There were five of us staying there and we could have easily fit another one comfortably! I was able to meet many of the neighbors they were all so nice and helpful finding things in the area. If I ever visit New York again this is where I hope to stay!!!
L'appartamento è delizioso, confortevole, spazioso, ben attrezzato e molto pulito. E' fornita anche la biancheria per i letti, gli asciugamani, il necessario per il bagno ed i detersivi, oltre ad un fantastico cesto di benvenuto con frutta e dolcetti! Inoltre l'appartamento viene riordinato più volte la settimana.
La posizione è ottima, in un quartiere residenziale tipico, molto tranquillo e a solo qualche minuto a piedi dalla fermata della metro che consente di raggiungere Manhattan (5 AV. ) in 10 minuti.
I proprietari sono stati sempre raggiungibili, puntuali e gentilissimi. Noi (famiglia di 2 adulti e 2 ragazzi) ci siamo trovati veramente bene e speriamo di poterci tornare presto!
Grazie a Edgar e Suzanne!
Great overall experience
This was a great stay and the place is very clean. We normally stay in hotels but figured we would give it a try and we were very delighted. We were 5 and slept very comfortable. The owner was fantastic as well. Definatly worth 5 star.
