We're doing a renovation of our own apartment since December 2015... We initially stayed at an Extended Stay America hotel near where we live (Hoboken, NJ) but soon figured that it wasn't for us. So we decided to look into Airbnb and we came across Anu's place.
Our stay at Anu's was awesome. The view was beautiful and seemed to change every hour. It was quite an experience to fall asleep gazing out at the city lights every night and waking up to huge barges pushed by tug boats meandering down the East River...
Anu's place was super quiet. You literally can't hear neighbors. The floors must be 18" thick concrete or something...
Anu's place was clean and warm (it was winter) and welcoming. Every night we stayed truly felt comfortable and nothing like in a hotel. We really felt at home and this had a lot to do with the way Anu set us up and made sure that we knew hot to navigate the building and introduced us to the doormen etc.
I highly recommend the experience of and Airbnb to anyone, especially if you're doing your own renovation.... It's definitely the way to go.
We moved out of Anu's place to relocate back to Hoboken to be closer to our on-going renovation...
We'll let you all know how our stay is at our new Airbnb home once we finally move back into our own (real) place.
Thanks again Anu!
