About this listing
A beautiful, clean and budget accommodation for up to two people in one of NYC's most exciting neighborhoods, East Village.
The room has all the essentials that a visitor would be looking for and it has a lot of character.
I live in an East Village duplex and I am offering the downstairs bedroom for a single traveler or a couple during their visit to NYC.
Your room has a lovely outdoor patio to relax, where you can have your morning coffee or evening wine. Your room also has a private bathroom (I have my own bathroom upstairs) and a private access door of its own. The kitchen is on the top floor. You are more than welcome to keep your stuff in the fridge or use the china or glassware, fix yourself a cup of coffee or cereal but please NO cooking...
What comes with the room:
- A private bathroom with a bathtub (just like a hotel)
- A private entrance door from outside
- Clean sets of towels
- A very comfortable queen size bed
- A nightstand
- A sizable wardrobe
- A dresser
- Outdoor patio with deck chairs
- Storage space for your suitcases
- Iron and ironing board
What is included in the price:
- Free high speed wireless internet access
I am a medical school student and I bartend 5 nights a week so you would have the apartment to yourself most of the time. And even when I am in the apartment, your downstairs room is very private and has its own door to outside. And you have your private bathroom.
Just a note to people who highly regard their privacy: Unless you come upstairs to use the kitchen, we do not have to cross paths. So your space is very private and cozy.
As you can understand from the nature of this post, I am looking for tourists who are here to enjoy NYC and I would like to provide them a home at a central, fun location at a reasonable price. The location is East 6th Street in East Village right by Avenue A.
10 minutes from Soho, 5 minutes from Little Italy/Chinatown and 10 minutes from Union Square. F train is five blocks away.
Let me know if you are interested and contact me with questions. My acceptance rate is low not because I am ultra-selective but because I advertise on different channels and the airbnb calendar is not always up-to-date. So please do not hesitate to contact me with your travel dates.
Also, if you would like to arrange to have a smartphone during your trip I can put you in touch with a local company, Explora, which offers a smartphone rental service with unlimited talk, text, and internet for $8 a day.
All the best,
Guests have a private bedroom with a private bathroom. Additionally they have access to my patio space in the back of the building.
They are welcome to use kitchen tools, china and glassware but cooking is not allowed.
(Making coffee or fixing a bowl of cereal is fine.)
(1) In East Village
- Mogador: A great restaurant, especially for breakfast or brunch, avoid on weekends, St. Marks between Avenue A and 1st Avenue
- Abraco Espresso: Great coffee shop, 7th Street between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue (closed on Monday)
- Little Frankies: Great pizzeria, 1st Street and 1st Avenue
- KanoYama: Amazing sushi, 11th Street and 2nd Avenue
- Bowery Hotel Lounge: Perfect place for evening drinks, in the lobby of Bowery Hotel
- PDT (the bar in Crif Dogs): Great hidden bar, you walk in the Crif Dogs Hot Dog Place and there is phone booth on the left hand side, get in it and pick up the phone. Get ready for a long wait though.
- Spotted Pig: Fantastic gastro-pub, in West Village
- NoMad: Cool bar/restaurant, worth checking out
- Highline: A cool sightseeing option in West Village, check it online but I think it is worth visiting
- Roosevelt Island Tram: An air-tram that goes to Roosevelt Island, great aerial views of Manhattan, a definite must, leaves from 2nd Avenue and 60th Street
We had a great time in Nyc, we spent one week in Sinan's apartment and we definetely reccomend it. Sinan is an excellent host, we had the pleasure of meeting him once. We actually felt at home, the private patio area in the back is fantastic, we usually had breakfast there and relaxed drinking beers by night! East village area is full of restaurants and pubs, we spent most of our time nearby in the evening! Subway station is 10 minutes walking distance near Houston St.! Thank you again Sinan, we really enjoyed our stay!!
Sinan was very helpful and easy going. In the neighborhood are lots of bars and restaurants. Great place to stay!
It was the first time we used airbnb. Sinan was easy to reach via text messages on his cell phone. When we arrived, we felt welcome and he answered to all the questions we asked.
Because we only stayed for one night and we had 2 very busy days, we didn't have time to interact much with the host but he seems like a very nice person. It was nice to have our own private exit and private bathroom.
Sinan was very kind, accommodating and responsive. He made us feel very welcome upon arrival and even helped carry our bags down to the room. The room is clean, private and has its own bathroom. Plus, it's on a separate floor and we never even saw Sinan after checking in as he stayed at a neighbor's place while petsitting. The neighborhood is super convenient and close to tons of great bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay at Sinan's place and appreciated his hospitality and the comfort.
Nice room, with private room in a lively neighborhood. We enjoy so much the terrace for the breakfast !
Sinan is both attentive and discreet : the perfect host.
We really enjoy our stay !
The perfect location. We didn't want to leave Sinan's apartment!
We arrived late at night and Sinan was out of town but his instructions for getting in were clear and simple.
Comfortable bed, good shower and fast internet. Not much else you would need.
We experienced some pretty hot days during our stay but the apartment never got too stuffy (and open window at night helped).
There is a laundry room in the building which was super convenient.
The neighborhood is perfect. Heaps around and away from all the busy tourist spots. Not too far from the subway if you do want to explore more though.
Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.
To say it in one word...awesome. We had great days in New York and Sinans flat. He's a cool guy and very helpful.
His Apartment is big enough for two, the patio is very nice (except the mosquitos) and the environment is quite and nice. Only a few blocks to the next Metro station.
About the Host, Sinan
I am a 29 year-old medical student (and bartender) and am trying to offer clean, cheap and central lodging to travelers who'd like to cut on lodging costs.
I love traveling and meeting people and being an unofficial NYC guide for them.
