Better than expected.
We booked this apartment some 9 months ago but recently read a previous renters negative comments and feared the worst. We were pleased to find that this apartment had been refurbished. It was clean ,comfortable and we'll stocked. It now looks quite a bit different to the listing photos but Aswad is in the process of changing them. There is a lot of dark wood throughout the apartment so it can make the place a little dark. The main bed is quite high and might be difficult to get into for some guests but a step is provided. Aswad is easily reachable on WhatsApp and helped us out in minutes after another guest locked us out of the building! The appartment is just a few hundred yards from Rockaway Ave subway ,and then about 45 mins into NYC. Finally the appartment is described as 2nd floor but for Uk visitors,we would call this first floor with just one flight of steps.
AWFUL! PICS ARE FROM YEARS AGO!!!
This place was horrid! If it was possible to give less than one star I would! I’m not sure what kind of living conditions the people who write the 5 star reviews are used to, but the conditions were totally unacceptable! The Ceiling was literally falling down in one of the bedrooms. Half of the tile to the bathrooom was missing and a trip hazard. There was a HUGE RAT TRAP kitchen! THERE WAS BLOOD on comforter on one of the beds! My kids were scared to stay the night! The THREE DOORS into the apartment were not very secure at all. We stayed Christmas night because it was too late to move, but had to get a hotel room for the other 4 nights... he refused any refund. I wish I could post the actual pictures of this run down frightening apartment in this review but it is not possible... I will be posting actual pictures on yelp so please check them out! VRBO WAS NO HELP EITHER... BEWARE, it doesn’t matter how much the owners misrepresent the property they will only get you a refund if the owner decides he wants to give it and Aswad wouldn’t even constider it even though we let him know our concerns and that we would be leaving after the first night! I should have been Leary when he didn’t send the actual information on the apartment until a couple days before we arrived!!! Now I know why!!!!
Many parts of this review don’t represent fact or tell the full story. I won’t wast time addressing each point but I am more then happy to address any concerns this review may cause if contacted. Needless to say Renee was dissatisfied and I wish her the best.
Really Nice and Aswad.....Super Approachable
This apartment has a lot of charm and is very comfortable, I really enjoyed it after a long day of travel. The neighborhood was super transportation friendly and super-safe with all kinds of people walking around.....very New Yorkish neighborhood.
Im excited to return and highly recommend
Last minute winter trip
Seamless process. Great communication. I'm from Brooklyn so very well aware of the neighborhood . Apartment was clean and ready to receive my family. Great experience
Nice Location & Great Hospitality
Asward is a very helpful host, There was a mix up in the beginning neither one's fault but he did everything he could to help our group out. The day we arrived we got there early so he helped us out and let us drop our luggage off until it was time for check in, He checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed, and if there was ever any questions he was always quick to answer them. The location of this apartment is great it's walking distance to the subways which we took every day to Manhattan, There are Stores, grocery stores & food places all around, The neighborhood always felt safe even when we would come in late at night, The apartment has lots of space and a very open floor plan, You do have to walk through one of the bedrooms to get to the bathroom but it didn't bother us. I would definitely stay here again.
The place was a great place to crash! It's a 10 minute walk to the subway just up the block. The place itself is clean but small and rustic as the building is very old and the floors slant . Not a problem unless you have balance concerns. 😊 The price is great though and if you aren't looking for a professionally restored place, this place is terrific. The owner was super helpful and very gracious. It's a good VRBO!!
