About this listing
This huge space has a living room dining room and bedroom all combined, sharing a bathroom with your neighbors on the floor. Small building in the center of the city, this beautiful space is great for anyone needing a place to sleep, lounge or work.
This listing is for a private room studio that share the floor with a small apartment with two room in the back of the building, this room does not have Kitchen. There is a small executive fridge inside for food an keeping drinks cold. Similar to a room in a hotel in this aspect.
The apartment is on the third floor and is a walk up (NO Elevator) but we are more than happy to help anyone with their luggage up the stairs. We will ask you when you arrive.
The building is over 100 years old with a lot of charm and quarks, exposed brick, high ceiling and a non functional fire place in a huge live/work studio. There are two double beds, 1 actual bed firm mattress and 1 pull out sofa with memory foam mattress (pull out sofa's tend to be creaky/makes noise).
Since the room is located on the front side of the building and has old windows, street noise is present and can be loud. Also note that there are bars downstairs on occasion you will hear noise from there. All guests should be aware that we are in the center of Manahattan one of the most populated and busy parts of town, if you want complete peace and quite this wouldn't be the place for you.
Bathroom is SHARED with another studio on the backside of the apartment on the same floor. Bathroom is cleaned regularly, but we ask guests to keep clean as well.
Fresh linens and towels are provided and there is wifi internet available
during your stay.

This gem of an Apartment is located in the heart of Manhattan's Garment district in midtown. Can't get any more central than this. It's walking distance to Korea town, that boast the best Korean outside Korea. All the major main attractions like the Empire State, Macy's Herald Square, Times Square, Bryant Park, and Rockefeller Center literally surround our location. Shopping, places to eat and things to check out are steps away.
All major subway lines are all within walking distance. Busses on the corner. Apartment is easily reachable by public transit from all major NYC area airports.

Our hosts were exceptionally well prepared and inviting! They accepted our nearly last minute booking and were ready to accommodate us within just a few short hours. The room was very tidy and well furnished with a lovely mid-century modern aesthetic. Would definitely recommend.
Bianca was super helpful and the apartment was perfectly positioned for sightseeing , shopping and generally getting around Manhattan. The decor was beautiful and we felt right at home . Many thanks ;)
I felt very welcomed to Bianca and Jose's apartment. It was a great space in a great area of NYC. The shared bathroom was mostly private (never had any occasions where I had to wait to use it or was using it while someone else needed it) but heard others use it every now and again. The room was very clean and spacious upon arrival. The only thing which I'd advise is you make sure you don't mind 2 heavy flights of stairs (can get tiring if going up and down multiple times a day) but it was great fitness which I didn't have a problem with (no elevator).
The space was really quite cool and had a great Aircon which cooled down the room quickly while I was there during summer.
Overall a good first AirBnb experience.
Our stay in NYC at Jose's & Bianca's apt was amazing!! The apartment is very nice and its only about 5 minutes away from Times Square! We met Jose & Bianca at Check in and they are lovely! We can recommend this apartment to everyone and we will definately come back in the future! Thank you Jose & Bianca!
It was a great experience staying at the place. Everything was clean, and made me feel very comfortable. And they even prepared the towels for us. The beds were very soft as well that we really had a great sleep at night. And also, the space was big enough for us. Last but not least, they were very kind to help me get into the room when I was locked outside because of me forgetting to bring the key. Thanks very much for hosting! We really enjoyed it. (:
This place is so good. Bianca and Jose are very nice person. We really enjoy our stay here.
Tanto Bianca como José me recibieron muy bien, siempre fueron muy atentos, con todo lo referido al departamento, y a consejos sobre NY. Estoy muy agradecida, el departamento y el barrio son perfectos. Todo está cerca, recomiendo este alojamiento. Volvería sin lugar a dudas.
Excelentes personas! Muchas gracias por todos!
