10 Excellent

The room was clean and nice. In the kitchen you find some things with which you can cook, also a nice supermarket is not that far away.
It is right that light shined around the door to our room but it didn't disturb us.
We could also hear when the dishes were washed in the second floor, but it was also no problem for us.
We always got home around 8 pm the latest and had no problems. You have to realize that you are staying in a neighbourhood with various people...

Positive: to find good, clean apartment, kitchen utensils for 2 available, quiet (our room was at the back, but front facing is a small river.), House for guests only, convenient location to the subway, shopping available, TV;
Negatives: bathroom or toilet seat area quite small (and I'm not very big, all over 1.80 have fun with it ;-)); much garbage in every respect on the streets, this is really the poorest part of the Bronx, so we (2 women individually tested trip) evening but sooner rather were in the apartment again, but everyone needs to know yourself;
Conclusion: Overall, however, a great value for money for NY and even an authentic look behind the facade plastered Manhattan

Nice apartment, clean, air conditioned. Hosts were very helpfull with everything we neded. Comparing to a place we had in Boston just few days earlier, this was Hilton :-) Close to 2 suways in Bronx. I cannot really say how safe the neighbourhood is. We were told not to leave anything in the car even in the middle of the day and we did not go out late in the night.

The apartment in the Bronx was as "good" as expected. Although located on a interstate, but as the room is directed to the other side, we experienced no interference. The apartment consists of one room with air conditioning, kitchenette and fridge, and bed and wardrobe. Everything was clean and the bed comfortable. The fridge was a bit noisy, we have eh'nicht hand and off. A bathroom also belonged to the room. Also clean. The shower was in the beginning for us Europeans own in the temperature control but try something with no problem. Only the toilet was a challenge. This climb was very tight - therefore also deducted a star. Another reason is that the house to the corridor is still noisy, so you may be disturbed before by stairs noise - I did it but nothing out. Who needs 100% dark, it will not find in the night, it comes to a lot of light under the door from the hallway.
The area is tourist free, so once very unusual, especially as light-skinned people, as one would have even noticed if people would be interested in there for it. We have safe and felt at home in the Bronx. Supermarkets and Metro are within easy reach. The drive to downtown took about 15 minutes and was also interesting.
Greg as "landlord" is nice in dealing but succinctly in communication and very uncomplicated.
We loved the apartment, especially for the price, very good. I recommend it for visitors looking for more than the primitive, the luxurious.

We can get along well in the room. You should have no fear of contamination because it just was not clean !!! Themselves have to bring towels as you get 1 per person, and we were there for two weeks. Also, I would be there in the winter do not go, because then you will not warm there. I've never felt unsafe there in the Bronx, from the studio incl. Walk you in 30 minutes downtown. The complex consists of all rental apartments for tourists, we have never had any trouble. We found our host a vague man, who clearly did not want a lot of work. He has complained to us that he was very busy, which was not clear.

What a desappointment !!! After seeing the reviews on this property we expected something good ...
The welcome was catastrophic, Ray poorly received us with no politeness or good morning, he seemed upset but we still do not know why ...
During our stay we've ever seen Greg n ...

The negative points:
The apartment is dirty, food splashes on the gas stove and walls, pillow was questionable tasks and hair !! the shower room shower curtain is dirty and smells bad ... should go the bathroom and toilet chlorine !! (Bleach)
It lacks the necessary maintenance (eg a broom). It lacks coffee.
The apartment is Loud !! It is located about 100 meters from a busy highway !!! Between police sirens, noise from other tenants who move in and out and auto engine sounds .... must be provided earplugs or have a heavy sleep .. The area is poorly attended from 21 hours.
Positives (yes there are ...)
The possibility of having a studio and not to be shared like the other apartments that are on the landing.
The quality of the bedding is very good and the kitchen equipment, The proximity of the subway (5 minutes walk) Brook Avenue station. The nearby shops of all kinds. The friendliness of the people surrounding (the day).
The attractive price.

To sum up:
Very bad reception. Dirty studio in a popular area close to all amenities for a decent price.
Nevertheless and due to bad contact and home I do not recommend it. I do not understand all the positive feedback

We were in mid-March in Greg's apartment. Some reviews of the previous speakers, we can confirm:
Positives:
- Large bed for 2 people
- Pillowtop mattress
- Relatively close to subway (about 7-10 minutes walk) that comes every few minutes
- Friendly, albeit temporally just tailed contact (Ray)
- Uncomplicated arrival and departure (on arrival)
- Wifi

Negatives:
- Unsightly fat splashes around the kitchenette
- Leaking windows that draw especially at night
- Heating, which turned out during 7 neighbor 2x
- Narrow bathroom
- Lack of basic equipment - lack of soap, small towels or toilet paper (replenishment)

General on the situation: need to get into the middle of Manhattan one mind with line 6 and a little walk 30 minutes count..
The directions that Greg had come to us prior to our arrival was very good and helped us to find the apartment equal.

Overall, we had a great time in New York and have been sleeping like in this apartment.

A disaster!
Where do we start ... if you like a fresh breeze like then you are exactly right! The heating was / is defective, as a replacement we got a small heater and a sakastisches smile by saying "we should not do so but" - at minus 10 degrees outside, mind you!
The windows are completely leak, there are any cracks of the windows to the wall wall so you can look outside, accordingly, it also attracts and it is cold. Likewise, the doors, a joke - it fit two fingers (!!!) between the door to the floor !!!
The cuisine is best avoided, completely filthy from the stove to the wall. On the wall glue residues from all predecessors, this way, you can see here also looking closely at the photos!
The cutlery also provided partly with remains of food. Ray et al took the spatula after we showed him the a new he did not put us, but was also ultimately we care, because we no longer had before for the sight to use the kitchen utensils!
The bed and towels covered with hair, absolutely disgusting. Even after we have approached Ray, he has brought us new towels, but not neubezogen the bed. Everything has to Ray told was that we do ourselves and we really yet to remember that we will be out all day anyway.
For bathroom, I can only say that this has not been cleaned for sure before we arrived!
We have in our one week two other couples there made, also from Germany and Hungary.
Where it is said to have probably been similar states.
Neither the two pairs still we can absolutely not understand how this apartment has got so many positive reviews, we suspect that there "helped along" was!
The only, but really only about the whole story is that near the metro station is directly and some shopping!
We can absolutely not recommend, whosoever still booked, must make the experience !!!

The small apartment is located in a house with other apartments in the middle of the South Bronx. The environment is very authentic, but not - as one might think the word "Bronx" - scary or dangerous. On the contrary, the people were all very nice and helpful.

Our apartment was equipped on the 1st floor very spacious and with good air conditioning. The amenities left nothing to be desired, it was all there: kitchenette with sink, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, cutlery and crockery. In the sleeping area, a king-sized bed with fresh linens, hardwood floors and an electric fireplace ;-)

Only the toilet is idiosyncratic: the fact that very little space to the wall is, acrobatic exercises are announced, if you want to sit down. But that's not really bad: -D

Everything was super clean and Ray was a helpful and very nice host - a true original in the Bronx just :-)

All in all we can only recommend the apartment. It really has no one to worry about, that it is in the Bronx; the area is interesting and truly unique. Just do not worry! And have fun in New York! If we are the nächtse time there, then we are happy again with Ray and Greg.
