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
Sinan was super friendly and helpful, checking if my arrival was safe and all the way till checking out!
The place was as described and extremely spacious which was great!
I would definitely stay here again when I'm around town!
Sinan is a great host, friendly, and east to talk to! Made me feel very comfortable and welcome during my stay. He was very helpful with any questions I had and was available for reach when needed. Great location and recommend for a nice stay.
It was lovely to stay at Sinan's place. He's very friendly and helpful. He sent us An email before we arrived to inform us about the upcoming snow storm. He also informed us about nie restaurants and sightseeing places.
The room is nice, big bed and a good heater (which was important during the storm :)). The neighbourhood is also lovely, feels very homy. I would recomand staying here!
Our room was a very good size with our own bathroom. Sinan was an excellent host and accommodated our schedule. We were on the lower floor with easy street access. The location was great and convenient to many East Village restaurants and bars. Easy 5-8 minute walk to the subway. I would definitely recommend this property if you want the true feel of living in a lively and diverse residential area of NYC.
Viaje con una amiga a ny por 10 dias y paramos en lo de Sinan, fue una muy buena experiencia, una habitacion para nosotras con baño privado y entrada directa. Todo muy limpio y comodo. La hubicacion es muy buena, el subte esta a 8 cuadras. Sinan es muy atento, se quemo una de las luces de la habitacion, le avisamos, y ese mismo dia ya lo habia arreglado. El colchon es un sillon cama, yo dormi bien pero mi amiga se quejaba un poco de los resortes. Tuvimos una muy buena experiencia, lo volveriamos a elegir, sin duda lo recomiendo.
It was a pleasure staying at Sinan's. Great location and very friendly host. Will be happy to stay here during my next trip to NY.
Sinan's space was a lovely way to spend a last night in NYC! It was clean and had a good amount of light. It's also a great size! I've stayed in much smaller hotels that were a lot more expensive and not nearly as nice. There's lots of space for your clothes, and he even offered an umbrella in the wardrobe.
It is a room with a private entrance in the basement level of his apartment. There's a curtain at the bottom of the stairs going down into the room, but no door separating you from the rest of the apartment, so if that weirds you out, consider it. However, the only time I even saw or heard Sinan was at check-in (I didn't have need for the kitchen), so I had no problems whatsoever. He was a great host! He was very accommodating with check-in/out times and was gracious. Whether you're new to NYC or a pro, he was very helpful with where to go, what to do, etc. in the area.
You also can't beat the location of this space! As far as I'm concerned, the Lower East Side is the best neighborhood in NYC! It's central to transport and lots of great restaurants and bars are nearby. I would stay again!
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.
