The Space

Beautiful, clean, spacious, extremely BRIGHT with great views LOFT like studio in an ELEVATOR building located in a quiet TREE LINED block in THE HEART of the EAST VILLAGE.
The apartment is FULLY EQUIPPED with a QUEEN SIZED extra comfortable bed, fine linen and towels, hair-dryer, table for two, a comfortable sleeping couch, flat screen TV with full cable, WIFI.
The separate WINDOWED kitchen has everything needed for cooking, pots and pans, coffee maker, oven toaster and microwave. There is always coffee, refreshments and basics so you can cook your own breakfast.
The neighborhood is fantastic, the TRENDY and famous EAST VILLAGE with uncountable great restaurants, boutiques, thrift shops, flee markets, farmers market and much more. The TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK (Great park with playgrounds, a big dog run and many performance spaces where you can usually find something happening on the weekends. Sundays there (email hidden) w/ some good stuff) right around the corner.
EAST RIVER PARK is a couple of blocks away. This 57-acre park boasts amazing views of the East River, as well as an amphitheater, playgrounds, gardens, sports fields and courts, and walking and bike paths.
On the corner of the apartment there is 24 hour grocery (email hidden) with countless options for everything.
There are 2 crosstown buses right on the corner that are scheduled to come literally every 5 minutes and follow the L train route. This is great for a rainy day or if you are coming from the subway with a lot of packages. The nearest subway is the L train which is about 5 minutes walk from the apartment and it is a great subway line because it connects you with any subway you might need.
Fine linen, fresh towels, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and soap are always provided. If you need anything , I am always available to help and I am very knowledgeable of the neighborhood and the city.

  • We had such a good experience at Lena's place! She was very accommodating! We were greeted by her beautiful little frenchies, which just confirmed we had chosen the right place as we are frenchie owners as well!! The place was in a great location, with tons of bars and restaurants and very close to a fantastic Whole Foods. Thank you Lena for your hospitality! We will definitely be booking again.

  • Many thanks to Lena for this great stay! The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos - clean, spacious and very comfortable. Great central and quiet location - East Village is a really nice neighborhood with a lot of good restaurants and bars. Lena was very helpful and always easy to get in touch with.

  • The flat was immaculate, and very well situated. We both like to walk; for us, all of lower Manhattan up to midtown was within easy reach. Lena had left a list of recommended restaurants in the area, and those we visited were indeed superb. So we had a great time, and would happily recommend the place to others.

  • Great place in a convenient location and Lena (email hidden)! My mom and I stayed for two nights, this was my moms first time using Airbnb and she was a bit skeptical about not staying in a hotel, but found it to be a great a value and more comfy than staying at a hotel. Once we got to Lena's place (super accommodating to let us checkin early since we took a red eye) we found the apartment to be absolutely adorable! It's decorated really cute and has a small elevator that's perfect when you're tired from walking around the city all day! It's a good size for two people and there a comfy futon if you wanted accommodate a third person. It's a short walk to the L line subway and still in walking and low taxi fair to all the good spots in lower Manhattan ( spent $10 to Times Square/ china town/ soho). Neighborhood was safe and great restaurants were only a few blocks away. Lena (email hidden), super nice person and had lots of books and info on tourist things in the apt. She even let us leave our luggage at the apt so we could enjoy NY before flying home. I will DEFINITELY reach out to Lena for a place to stay next time I'm in NY. Thank you Lena!

  • Couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful experience!
    Lena was an excellent host. My traveling companion and I had a wonderful time staying in this area. So many things to do, especially if you are looking for a young crowd. So many independent restaurants, boutiques, and bars. I would definitley stay here again.

    Lena also provides feedback on the neighborhood such as the best places to eat as well as her personal favorites. I found this really helpful since it is coming straight from someone who lives in the area. She has a map of NY posted on the wall, she provides wifi (which runs great), and she responds almost immediately if needed. She is very professional when it comes to service and hospitality.

    I know some people have commented about noise, however I must say that I slept comfortably each night. No issues whatsoever, and the bed is SO comfortable.

    Thank you again Lena, and hope to be back soon! :)

Real estate agent, originally from Colombia but a true New Yorker. I enjoy what this great city has to offer and because of the nature of my job, I certainly know how to offer a 5 stars service for a 2 stars price.
