Has anyone has used airbnb to book accommodation in NYC? Is it ok? Also, upper East Side, Downtown, Village, Westside etc....where to stay?
My wife and I have stayed in 5 Airbnb places in NYC so far, and all have been great - we've written up some of our tips at http://www.airbnbpro.com As for location, our favourite is the Upper West Side, because we like to try to live 'like locals' as much as possible. Midtown doesn't have nearly as many interesting bars and restaurants, and with the subway you're never too far from the action anywhere you go. over 7 years ago
