It is a pre-war building and has some tricks. But you get used to soon, and don’t bother you. The location of the apartment is very convenient. it takes literally 3 minutes to get the subway station. Then you can reach the grand central, Bryant Park and Times Square within 15-20 minutes. But it also has a disadvantage, because rail tracks are very close, and it can be a bit noisy when train passes. However, even though i am a sound-sensitive person (i study with ear-plugs in the library), it did not disturb me. The neighborhood is diverse and lively. There are many restaurants, markets, laundries, etc. closeby and some of them are open 24 hours. You do not feel unsafe at all even during the night. Sen is very polite and tries to help you all the time. In sum, if you are looking for luxury, it is not for you; but if you are looking for a quiet and convenient place to live, then you can prefer this apartment.

This was not a stay but rather a tour of three apartments hosted by Pao. We were met by his associate Sen, who lives in the building. Sen showed us around, pointing out the advantages and possible limitations of each residence, and answering all our questions. We felt we’d be well cared for there. It was also a pleasure to meet him.

Had a blast staying at Pao's. Apartment is great and as described. Pao is a great host, very communicative and everything requested was taken care well above expectations before arrival definitely recommend staying at this place. Sunnyside is a great neighborhood and the apartment is literally 3 min away from the subway,shops (incl Starbucks, dunkin donuts, supermarkets..etc) we are definitely coming back again, Thank you Pao

Communication beforehand and around check in time was brilliant. Sen was extremely accommodating and helpful, carrying bags up the flights of stairs, advising on taxi fares. The area, Sunnyside, is fabulous. So many great bars, restaurants, grocery stores and cafe's. So much diversity in a small space. The journey into Manhattan was very quick and you get a great view of the city from the Subway station. The apartment is quite near the subway, so if you are noise sensitive bring earplugs - I soon got used to it though as I live in a city! The apartment is spacious and very clean, however it is a little old, so air-con and wi-fi were not as good as they could be. For a short term stay this would be absolutely fine, but as I was staying longer term this was troublesome for me due to the need to work from home. Sen was wonderful and did everything he could to improve on those things and checked in regularly. In the end I decided to move elsewhere and Sen was very accommodating - he is an excellent host. Perfect for a short term stay in a great area with great transport links, but if you need a longer term stay you might want to think about what you will need before booking. That said it was a positive experience overall and I would recommend it as a good base for exploring the city.

Pao had Sen work with us and he was an excellent host! He contacted us before we left to arrange a meeting time and was very flexible! He also thoroughly explained everything with the apartment and frequently kept us updated on local events. He left us a great list of recommendations for restaurants and was always readily available to answer any questions we had. The apartment is very roomy and in a great (URL HIDDEN) was only a short subway trip to Manhattan and we felt very safe walking at night. When I come back to New York I will definitely look him up!
