About this listing
This is most probably the best spot in Soho. You are in the middle of everything: steps from eclectic Chinatown and Nolita with small boutiques and restaurants. At the same time you are in Soho with high end stores and all entertainment you need. The apartment is located on Kenmare Square with the hippest bars and restaurants. There is a small park in front of the building. The apartment has two bedrooms and one bathroom. To get to the bathroom you need to go through one of the bedrooms - please consider this. The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen and a nice living room. Wireless Internet, Aircondition etc.. There is original art from my gallery on the walls. The apartment is in a old building and by no means like a 5 Start Hotel, it is a nice old NY apartment and we do love it. The apartment is a walkup - there is no elevator in the building. If you stay at our apartment you will get the best of Downtown NY. Also you are 1/2 block from the green 6 subway on Spring Street. Starbucks is also 1/2 block so fresh coffee is no problem.
Soho is probably one of the best shopping areas in the world with a beautiful and authentic architecture. At the same time you are steps from more eclectic neighborhoods like Lower Eats Side and China Town. From the location you can basically walk anywhere in Downtown.
All major Subways are close - the green line is 20 seconds from the apt.
We newly renovated the apartment all we ask treat it like your own. No parties without checking with us before - of course you can have dinner parties. We do have valuable original artwork on the wall as well as some designer furniture please respect it. Garbage has to be put out in black bags Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays in front of building after 6 pm.
Great location!! Bed was super comfy as well. Metro was very close and convenient. Felt safe in the neighborhood. Would definitely recommend.
Check in went smoothly which was great after a long flight. This apartment is in a great position for restaurants and shopping and very comfortable to come back to after a long day sightseeing.
We had a very good time in the apartment and found it well described. I note that there was one recent negative review - many of the complaints were not the case for us or had been addressed. The apartment is quite spartan - it could do with a few more kitchen implements perhaps (fish slice, teapot)...but I suspect this is not a big issue for many visitors and wasn't for us. The description is very adequate - although the photos make it look a little larger than it is...still - I have no complaints and, as mentioned by others, the location is great and the price seemed competitive.
We really enjoyed our stay in Arne's appartment. More centrally located than this you won't get! The best shopping and bakery in NYC around the corner. Subway around the corner. Small, clean appartment. Little noisy with traffic. But I would stay here next time we're in NYC.
Cute as a button. Everything was exactly as described in the add. VERY CLEAN and COMFORTABLE! Plenty of towels. Beds were soft and cozy. Bathroom was updated and sparkling fresh. Arne even had a handbook on the table of all the little details from the Wi-fi, to the rooftop deck, to the neighborhood. Definitely worth the price we paid. You wont find a decent hotel with comparable amenities for even close to this cost. Even though my host was halfway across the world in Germany, she still was extremely prompt with responses and arrangements for check in. I thank her and her house cleaner so much for their patience with us as we were stuck in unpredictable NYC traffic on the day of check in and her cleaner was nice enough to wait for us to make sure we checked in ok. I was very pleased with my stay especially the fact that Arne most definitely takes very good care of her property and seems to host with pride.
Je n'ai pas rencontrer Arne mais comme nous arrivions tres tard il a reussi a nous faire parvenir les clés!
L'appartement est comme decrit et tres bien situé! A recommandé!
Great little spot to base yourself to explore the wonders of NYC. The information pack left by our host was amazingly helpful. We had such a wonderful time. The apartment was just as described and perfect for our needs. We were traveling with 2 young boys 4 and 7. Thank you for this great experience

About the Host, Arne
I am German but at the same time a New Yorker after living more then 10 years here. I am married with Kathie and we have two small daughters - which keep us busy. I do own Pablo's Birthday Gallery (Gallery for Contemporary Art) in NYC which is in my opinion the most exciting city in the world.
