About This Listing
A cozy quiet room in the chic 3 bedroom apartment. This room features a full closet, additional shelf space, exposed brick and unique furniture pieces.
The apartment is located in the HEART of Union Square, moments away from Gramercy Park, East Village. Soho, Meatpacking District and Greenwich village are all a short walk away. Major Subway lines, grocery stores, countless bars and dinning are all outside your door.
As a visitor looking for an authentic NYC experience, this is the most convenient location for nightlife, shopping and the "Downtown" vibe.
The other two bedrooms are occupied by two young professionals also having a similar NYC experience as you. Its very important to me to bring together like minded people in the apartment. Lots of friendships have been formed here.
* Queen Bed with fresh linen
* Fresh Towels
* Bath products
* Wireless Internet Access
* Bose Speakers which you can connect to your Ipod
* Full Library open to you (including many NYC Guidebooks)
* Bathroom (Shared with 1 person, there are 2 bathrooms in the apartment)

You will feel at home the moment you walk into this apartment, there are great people and energy here. I also work in a NYC hotel and will do everything possible to make sure you have an authentic NYC experience.
Things to note:
* No more than 1 guest to stay in the room
* Please be respectful of your neighbors & roomie- no parties
* NYC streets are gross- shoes off inside the house please

Before emailing me:
* Please tell me a little bit about you and why your coming to NYC. What time you're planning on arriving/ departing.
* Let me know if you have any special needs, allergies, etc. I'll be happy to get you set up.
Its a nice appartment in a really great area. Even it's central, it's really quiet. The location could not be better. The appartment itself is cosy and I felt safe and fine there. Marika is a really helpful person and communication with her was easy. It was really cold in the appartment, but she did everything to make it better. Giving me an extra heater, bringing me some warm sleeping-pants... I would stay there again.
Lovely apartment in a fantastic location. Plenty of good places to eat/drink nearby. Close proximity to subway and markets. Marika was friendly and very helpful.
I love the location of this place! It's super convenient! 24-hour convenient store downstairs, close to the subway, shopping and union square!
Since you're sharing a bathroom with someone, how clean it is depends on who you'll be sharing it with and how particular you are. I didn't use the kitchen area often, but it's kept clean and neat.
The room is exactly like the photo.
But because of the AC unit at the window, the room can get VERY COLD despite having the heating units.
The bed was not very comfortable for me, it had a sunken shape and I'd get a sore back on some days.
Overall I had a pleasant stay here and I LOVE how conveniently located this place is!
Marika went through great lengths to ensure her guests feel at home. The information on the website was completely accurate. The only little detail which I felt was missing was the condition of the building. But given the location and the apartment itself, it really makes no difference! PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN THE HEART OF NYC.

About the Host, Marika
A globe trotter and adventure seeker with New York style and sensibility.
This quote by Lawrence K. Fish is my ongoing mantra and life phylosophy:
find life experiences and swallow then whole. travel. meet many people. go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. try everything. exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life.
I work in the hospitality industry and hosting is second nature to me. I love sharing my knowledge of the city and making your NYC experience authentic and unique.
