The Lodge offers the best of both worlds. A quiet, safe neighborhood while being the CLOSEST thing to the city (any closer we'd be IN the city)!

There are great restaurants and a handful of bars within walking distance. A 10 minute walk will bring you to PS1, a satellite museum of The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MoMA). It has great, funky pieces of art from cutting edge artists. PS1 also host amazing summertime parties called "The Warmup Sessions" with international DJ's. A little further on is the Pulaski bridge connecting to Brooklyn.

Street parking generally opens up by 4pm. There are also parking lots within three blocks charging between $7-12 for the day.

We pride ourselves in going above and beyond for our guests. If we can accommodate you we will. As native New Yorkers we can suggest places to go, things to do and point out cool little spots that only New Yorkers know about :).

Listing of the Lodge as having 1.5 baths is very dubious at best (there's a half bath shared amongst multiple apartments in the basement). The apartment is decidedly no frills. But it's a great value in a location easily accessible to public transport.

Aram's place far exceeded my expectations. The apartment is incredibly clean, and the host is extrememly accessible.

The Lodge apartment is located in a quite area of Long Island City close by to two subway stations. Access to and from the City was convenient. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. There were eight in our group and we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Lodge for groups visiting New York. Aram was helpful, friendly and responded quickly to any needs we had.

Positive: - the host was very nice and helpful during check-in - as mentioned location is very nice although i question the 5 minutes to NYC claim. Negative: if you go during the summer months, make sure there're air conditioners in the bedrooms as shown in the photo. when we got there there were only 2 small window air conditioners located in the living room and kitchen plus 2 box fans. we arrived at 8 PM that night and it literally took all night to cool down the 2 bedrooms. we had to blow cool air from the kitchen using the box fans all night which was very loud. needless to say "sleeping" was unpleasant the first night. there were also limited sheets and blankets as well.

Great place, great value and great location. The subways are less than a block a way. I'd stay here again.

Aram's place was very comfortable and provided all the basic necessities that we needed for our stay. We had a total of 8 guests and it was fairly comfortable and not cramped, however any more than that might be a little tight.

Full time music producer and dad. Big lover of spicy food and samba!
Our place is clean, well maintained and well loved.
We pride ourselves in catering to our guests and accommodating whenever possible.
As the owner and managing director of The Lodge, my office is in the basement so I'm easily accessible.
A native New Yorker, I can offer suggestions on where to go and what to do while you're here... which can be 24 hours a day!
