Very disappointed with the appartment which has 3 bedrooms including yours. It is not mentionned in the description. Which is a catch because when you have a look at it, it seems it is a one-bedroom appartment.
The host mentions Manhattan is 25 minutes away by metro. It is not true. It is rather 40 minutes to 1 hour on J line. The neighborhood is not the best and we were advised by people I know in NYC not to go to Jamaica. It is not that bad, but it could have been much better. If you can find better, go for it. Keep this as a last resort, if you do not have the choice.
Santiago did ask us at what time we would arrive at JFK. When we arrived with a taxi, we were told by his family he was away. Then he arrived with an Italian fellow from the airport !!! We were there too but Santiago did not offer to pick us up ! Weird...
The house is located in a side street a few meters from the subway station. You can hear and feel the subway trains on the elevated railway, but that bothers some. The room is located in the basement of the house. It has no windows, but the air conditioning brings fresh air.
Kitchen and bathroom are not new, but neat and clean. They shared with guests of the other two rooms (1x Double, 1x Single bed).
Santiago is a very nice and helpful host, who informed us upon arrival on Subway, shopping etc.. We could leave our luggage until evening departure in the neighborhood.
With the features of the J-line leads directly to the south of Manhattan, with one change on the E line in the central part of Manhattan. For JFK Airport to get with J-line and Airtrain or cheaper with the Q10 bus, which leaves right at the next street corner.
Das Haus liegt in einer Seitenstraße nur wenige Meter von der Subway-Station entfernt. Man hört und spürt die Subway-Züge auf der Hochbahnstrecke, doch das stört wenig. Das Zimmer befindet sich im Kellergeschoss des Hauses. Es hat leider kein Fenster, aber die Klimaanlage bringt frische Luft.
Küche und Bad sind nicht mehr neu, aber ordentlich und sauber. Man teilt sie mit Gästen der beiden anderen Zimmer (1x Zweibett, 1x Einbett).
Santiago ist ein sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber, der uns bei der Anreise über Subway, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten etc. informierte. Wir konnten unser Gepäck bis zum Abend der Abreise im Quartier lassen.
Mit den Zügen der J-Linie gelangt man direkt in den Süden von Manhattan, mit einmal umsteigen über die E-Linie in den mittleren Teil von Manhattan. Zum JFK-Airport kommt man mit J-Linie und Airtrain oder billiger mit dem Q10-Bus, der gleich an der nächsten Straßenecke abfährt.
We got a very pleasant and warm welcome from our host Santiago. A very nice apartment which was very clean and daily cleaned and most delicious smells clean. Picobello our stay! Santiago is a very attentive host and from day one as we had made the booking, he was always prompt with his replies.Ook during our stay we could always count on him and he was very helpful with everything! Thank you you're a Santiago top! Definitely a must if you are visiting NY metro is walking distance to Manhattan, you're on the go a while but again, away from the crowds! Definitely come back again along with Santiago. Gracias para todos! Shirley and Nancy Amsterdam!
We kregen een heel prettige en warme ontvangst van onze host Santiago. Een zeer prettig appartement dat ontzettend schoon is en dagelijks wordt schoongemaakt en bovenal heerlijk schoon ruikt. Picobello ons verblijf!! Santiago is een zeer attente host en from day one vanaf wij de boeking hadden gemaakt was hij altijd prompt met zijn replies.Ook tijdens ons verblijf konden we altijd bij hem terecht en was hij erg behulpzaam met alles!!dank je wel Santiago je bent een topper!! Beslist een aanrader als je NY bezoekt en metro is loopafstand naar Manhattan,je bent wel even onderweg maar ook weer weg van alle drukte! Komen zeker weer een keer langs bij Santiago. Gracias para todos!! Shirley and Nancy Amsterdam!
I stayed with Santiago over the New York Marathon weekend. Santiago is a cool guy, and he helped me with finding this and that. No problem with him. What confused me, though, is the "Quiet" in the description. Maybe it's quiet for New York / Queens standards but 1. the elevated subway (J line) passes the house by about 50 yards, and except between ~ 12 pm and 4.30 am, a train will go straight through your bed every 10 minutes on average (counting both directions). If you are sensitive to noise, be sure to bring earplugs, and even they won't actually help. 2. the house rule "Keep noise to a minimum between 8:00 pm and 9:00 am." is a bit funny because most of the noise during the evening actually came from above, when the family looked sports shows on TV or something, and the building is very clearaudient. But maybe that's just me, and I'm just sensitive to noise (but then I live near Munich airport...) Other than that, clean and okay. This is probably what you get at this price in the New York area. :-D
