A perfect week in the city which never sleep...
2 minutes by foot of time square, 5 minutes of the 5th avenue, what more can you ask for?...
We stay at 4 adults and a baby on the flat and the size was perfect.
Raphael and his colleague always answer to all the mail and the service to pick up off the keys or leave the luggages on the last day was very appreciable!
For our next trip in NYC we call upon to Raphael and Casanova Condos for sure! So don't hesitate to!
Appatement change at the last minute and was replaced without giving us any choice other supposedly more expensive quieter so old so ... Way of saying that that I had chosen was noisy, small, and old! S without Lay on the fact of not being able to choose the apartment (only one choice therefore propose ps choice) on sale the existence of what they call a terrace but which is only a tiny balcony and one forgets to mention that the three th room is located 3 meters in height and is accessible by a ladder of "fireman" prohibiting descent half asleep at night when needed very natural! If we add to this picture the fact that a 3 m high it is twice as hot that down!! and that the air conditioning in the main room was broken (say that we were moved to apartment bp air conditioning (that said when you see the shape of the air conditioning that date after war sounds like a truck when one is edge of the highway, and not as it refreshes!!)) thing that it took us to report (it would be better to put a person that the air conditioning before we arrived which would have allowed al office to anticipate the renewal the defective air conditioning. Having said problem reported and resolved the very next day but effective overwhelmed corner store!! In summary it is clear that the demand for rental apartment is huge and that we rent all year and no matter what any price! !The apartment that I had announced a selected area of 75 m2 on your site and the owner told me he will never declared such a surface (the one that I had finally got to half or slightly more. Unfortunate mismatch between the site and Like any reality places (too?) popular we feel that if it does not suit us we found a shovel to others! But note the good observed during this holiday apartment actually very quiet sides overlooking a leafy courtyard bp réqolue air conditioning during the day (outright the prehistoric defective air conditioning replacement) ideal location not far from the very last. Bb 5 floor (one is 4 to usa) without lift that muscle the quad and glutes!
Appatement change au dernier moment et est remplacé sans nous donner de choix par un autre soi disant plus cher plus calme moins vieux etc ...
Façon de dire que celui que j avais choisi etait bruyant, petit , et vieux !!!
Sans s etendre sur le fait de ne plus pouvoir choisir l appartement (un seul choix proposer donc ps de choix ) on vente l existence de ce qu ils appellent une terrasse mais qui n est qu un minuscule balcon et on oublie de préciser que la 3 eme chambre se situe a 3 metres de hauteur et est accessible que par une echelle de "pompier" interdisant toute descente a moitié endormie pendant la nuit en cas de besoin bien naturel !!!
Si on rajoute a ce tableau le fait qu a 3 m de hauteur il fait deux fois plus chaud qu en bas !!!!!! et que la clim de la piece principale etait en panne (dire qu on nous a changé d appartement pour pb de clim (ceci dit quand vous voyez l allure de la clim ça date d apres guerre, fait un bruit de camion quand on est au bord de l autoroute , et ne raffraichit pas tant que ça !!!!)) chose qu il a fallut que nous signalions (il serait bien venu qu une personne mette la clim avant notre arrivée ce qui aurait permis a l office d anticiper le renouvelement de la clim defectueuse . Ceci dit probleme signalé et résolu dés le lendemain depanneur efficace mais débordé !!!!
En résumé on voit bien que la demande de location d appartement est énorme et qu on loue tout et n importe quoi a n importe quel prix !!!
L appartement que j avais choisi annoncait une surface de 75 m2 sur votre site et le loueur m a dit que jamais il n avait déclaré une telle surface (celui que j ai eu finalement devait faire la moitié ou legerement plus .
Discordance regrettable entre le site et la réalité
Comme tout les endroits très (trop?) prisés on sent que si ça ne nous convient pas on en trouvera a la pelle d autres !!
Mais notons les bons cotés observés pendant ce séjour appartement effectivement très calme donnant sur une cour interieure arborée pb de clim réqolue dans la journée (remplacement pur et simple de la clim préhistorique defectueuse) situation ideale pas loin de tout . dernier bemol 5 etage (4 on est aux usa) sans ascenseur ça muscle les quadri et les fessiers !!!
Approx. one week before the departure we were offered an alternative apartment, as in the booked allegedly went no hot water. The new apartment was booked near the Empire Sate Building `s and greater than that. We also had 2 heads instead of one. Key handover went smoothly. However, they gave us the wrong address in the office (143 West instead of East, 143) and thus again we had to take a detour in purchasing. The new apartment was clean and as described. We felt comfortable and we would stay there again.
Ca. eine Woche vor der Abreise wurde uns eine alternative Wohnung angeboten, da in der gebuchten angeblich kein warmes Wasser ging. Die neue Wohnung war in der Nähe des Empire Sate Building`s und größer als die gebuchte. Außerdem hatten wir 2 Nasszellen statt nur einer. Schlüsselübergabe verlief problemlos. Allerdings hat man uns im Büro die falsche Adresse gegeben (West 143 statt East 143) und wir mussten somit nochmal einen Umweg in Kauf nehmen. Die neue Wohnung war sauber und wie beschrieben. Wir haben uns dort wohl gefühlt und würden wieder dort buchen.
First of all, we were surprised to find out, that the keys needed to be picked up in another place. We asked to meet at the apartment as we want to be sure everything is clean and work properly. Host did not accept our proposal. Now we know the reason.
The apartment is a nightmare!. It is DIRTY!!!! Hair and spots all over the place (no wonder, they do not have a vacuum cleaner, only an old and dirty broom). There are 2 ½ bathroom, each of them were in terrible conditions, you will find black spots in the showers (fungus). Doors cannot be looked up as the door knobs are broken.
We (ten people) spend money buying cleaning stuff, and several hours cleaning the apartment. It was not possible to contact the office, as they went home by then.
Next day, we called the office and explained the situation. A lady was sent to clean, but without the most necessary tools to do it professionally, as written in the homepage. There were not enough bed clothes, dishes and pans.
Besides all the dirt, following appliances were not working properly: Washing machine, internet, and AIR CONDITIONING. We would like to mention, that the outside temperature in New York was around 36 and 40 °C.
Dealing with the people of “Casanova Condos” was very unpleasant. They are very rough. We were insulted. Our host “Raphael” never showed up. The manager offered us $400.00 for the cleaning, and all other costs we had (taxis to the office and several calls to Spain and Germany looking for support with WINDU). We never received the money. The explanation was that we broke 4 beds. We were not allowed to go back into the apartment to proof this was not the true.
If you care about cleanliness and good maintenance of the place you want to stay, this is not the place for YOU. We checked at the Consumer Office of New York City and found out “Casanova Condo” is not recommended as a serious business partner
Great location for exploring Manhattan. We are a family of 7 persons. It was very easy to get around either by walking og by subway. We really enjoyed Central Park which was just next door. It was a very quiet street with no noise at night. We also walked down to the Hudson River and saw the 4th of July firework.
We really liked the apartment. The 4 bedrooms gave plenty of room for our big family. 2 bathroom and 1 toilet was perfect. We were eating out the most of the time, so the limited kitchen supply was not a problem. The WIFI speed was very slow if there was many users at the same time.
We had a great week in New York
We have this so-called luxury apartment booked 22 to June 27, 2013, for 10 people. Having sent to be the number of bedrooms (10 people), bathrooms definitely different mails (on their site 3, but in reality 2) and chairs, as well as kitchen utensils, etc., I got a short answer back from ( Casanova Condos): Hello Mohamed confirmed it sleeps in and thatthere are two and a half bathrooms The apartment is definitely not a luxury apartment; mist of everything and it is not clean. You must pick up keys at another location, + / - 5 km from the apartment, and if you come on the weekend you have to pay extra $ 40.00. Subject transportation from JFK airport to office (where the keys had to be met) and from the office to the apartment, we thought this was arranged (different emails and phones from the Netherlands) and a van that could pick at JFK, but our arrival there was no one, and we stood there with ten. We have several times been in contact with the office (with a Dutch phone, result: € 40, - telephone), but they told us that we had to figure it out yourself. Outside, down the street from the apartment, walked us the rats in the road as we went walking slightly. New York is recommended, but not with this organization.
We hebben dit zogenaamde luxe appartement geboekt van 22 tot 27 juni 2013, voor 10 personen. Na verschillende mails te hebben verstuurd om zeker te zijn van het aantal slaapkamers (10 personen), badkamers (op hun site 3, maar in werkelijkheid 2) en stoelen, evenals de keuken benodigdheden etc., heb ik een kort antwoord terug gekregen van (Casanova Condos):
Mohamed confirmed it sleeps ten and that there are two and a half bathrooms
Het appartement is zeker geen luxe appartement; mist van alles en het is niet schoon. Je moet de sleutels op een andere plaats ophalen, +/- 5 km van het appartement, en als je in het weekend komt moet je extra $ 40,00 betalen.
Betreft het vervoer vanuit vliegveld JFK tot kantoor (waar de sleutels gehaald moesten worden) en van kantoor naar de appartement, dachten we dat dit was geregeld ( verschillende mails en telefoons vanuit Nederland) en dat een busje ons kon komen halen op JFK, maar bij aankomst was er niemand, en stonden we daar met z’n tienen.
We hebben een aantal keer contact gehad met het kantoor (met een Nederlandse telefoon, resultaat: €40,- telefoonkosten), maar ze vertelden ons dat we het zelf maar moesten uitzoeken.
Buiten, in de straat van het appartement, liepen ons de ratten in de weg als we een stukje gingen lopen.
New York is aan te raden, maar niet met deze organisatie.
a very good and extremely well located apartment, most things to do within walking distance, metro very close, check over the weekend, however, costs just $ 40 extra! The supply of a sister organization for a cheap transfer from the airport is incorrect: a regular cab has a flat rate from the airport and is much cheaper than the supply for the airport shuttle: do not do it! Apartment is recommended, clean and well equipped, good beds!
een erg goed en buitengewoon gunstig gelegen appartement, meeste dingen op loopafstand te doen, metro ook erg dichtbij; inchecken tijdens het weekend kost echter zomaar 40 dollar extra! Ook het aanbod van een zusterorganisatie voor een voordelige transfer vanaf het vliegveld is onjuist: een gewone taxi heeft een flat rate vanaf het vliegveld en is veel goedkoper dan het aanbod voor de airport-shuttle: niet doen dus! Appartement is aan te raden, schoon en goed uitgerust, goede bedden!
Only chairs and table for four persons to eat - not eight.
Cutlery for five to six people.
Don't count on the washingmachine and dryer.
Heating/aircon of very doubtful quality.
Location excellent, very old apartment, 2 keys were given to us who are being opened and closed with one dificuladade the front door of the apartment. Domestic utensils not very velhos.secadora clothes funcionava.o heating system worked only in 1 room and other environments too cold. left much to be desired.
Localizacao excelente, apartamento muito velho, foram dadas 2 chaves para nos sendo que so uma abria e fechava com dificuladade a porta de entrada do apartamento. utensilios domesticos muito velhos.secadora de roupa nao funcionava.o sistema de calefacao funcionava somente em 1 quarto sendo os outros ambientes muito frio. deixou muito a desejar.
We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. Location is very good just as described (near central park and natural history museum, Amsterdam is full of little restaurants etc). Apartment size amazing for Manhattan. Our only point for improvement is the following: there was no tea towel for drying dishes, and the kitchen could have a few more basic dishes such as wine glasses, extra plates and utensils.
