Rachel is really nice and uncomplicated. We only met on the last day, since neither of us spent much time at the apartment. The apartment could be cleaner. You can walk to a couple of subway stations and the Brooklyn Bridge isn't far.
It was the worst experience in AirBnb..I didn't get the opportunity to meet Rachel but instead a friend of hers just for the exchange of keys. Rachel was on holiday and I guess that was the reason why the flat was so dirty, the bed was not ready at my arrival with proper sheets and pillows ,but I had to arrange everything by myself. There were bugs everywhere in the (email hidden)pecially roach in the bathroom which was very very disgusting!! Lucky me I spent very short time at that flat!!!
She didn't even checked with me if everything was alright. I think if you host guests you should at least make sure that they have everything they need otherwise what's the point of renting as a BnB?! I whish she advised me earlier about these inconveniences.
I defintely will NOT recommend this place!!!
Spent the weekend visiting friends in New York and this place worked perfectly. Great location and not too far from the metro. I did not get to meet Rachel as she was out of town but she was always accommodating even from afar. The only thing that would have made this stay better would have been better pillows. Easy fix!
Rachel is a lovely host, friendly and helpful. The apartment is tiny but clean, and very adequate for the visitor who wants to be out enjoying New York. The location is deep in Chinatown and the local food is excellent. I recommend the 15 bus, rather than the subway.
Rachel was nice enough to let us come in early to drop our bags off on the first day and to let our bags stay for a few hours after check out until our bus left that evening.
We had a nice stay at Rachel's. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean. The space is a little small for two people - the bed is a twin.
We were early to bed most nights (about 10:00pm - 10:30pm). Rachel usually came home after that. The place is pretty small and the bedrooms aren't far apart so we were able to hear anythign that happened in the kitchen and sometimes Rachel's bedroom (which included Rachel on the phone, doing dishes, taking out trash, or grabbing something to drink.)
Chinatown is very close to a lot of cool districts like Soho and the rest of the Lower East Side. It made getting around pretty convenient.
Rachel was also kind enough to have towels for us. We only saw Rachel when we checked in (our schedules were opposite) but could here her very well as she made her way into the apartment. Which can sometimes be a problem if you are trying to rest as you can hear EVERYTHING.
All in all we enjoyed ourselves and didn't spend much time in the room anyways except to sleep.
This is a cozy little room in the Two Bridges neighborhood on the edge of Chinatown. Its close to some great restaurants if you're traveling on the cheap. Rachel was a very accommodating host who made sure we had everything we needed while we were there--she even sang and played ukulele for us! Overall a great experience. Be sure to check out her weekly performance at Cici's cafe, just a 90 second walk down the block from her apt!
Rachel is a great person and gave a heartful athmosphere. I will come again
Our first Airbnb experience, and a very pleasant one !
Rachel's apartment is very cute and cozy. We didn't see each other a lot, as we were both living at the crazy NYC rhythm of life ! So going back to Rachel's place was really nice and relaxing :)
I had an awesome time staying in Chinatown, this was was the perfect location to explore the area! The accommodations and the host was just has she stated, no unwanted surprises, which made my traveling go smooth! Thanks Rachel!
First experience with AirBnB for a single night. Rachel was very accommodating and friendly. Thanks for hosting!
