About this listing
I am renting out the entire apartment in the heart of Chinatown.
Cozy, clean, 2 bedroom European style apartment, right in the heart of Manhattan/Chinatown. The apartment is pretty easy 4th floor walk up in a classical old New York building.
The apartment is uncluttered in a good condition and clean. The bathroom has a shower with toilet, hot water and good water pressure. I provide clean bedding and FREE Wi-Fi. Kitchen is available with over sized fridge for use. YES, there is air-conditioning in your room and in the winter very good heating.
Safe and super charming neighborhood (no hipsters yet), "The only part of Manhattan still looking like in 1950's" as someone told me. It's a a great location, short to walk to Soho, Tribeca, Lower East Side.
Laundromat and coffee shop are downstairs in the building (Coffee in this part of town is $1) There’s also 24/7 Deli on the corner.
The apartment is walking distance to lower Manhattan, SOHO, the West Village and Tribeca. The Brooklyn Bridge is a 15 min walk from my house. Times Square is 20 minutes by subway.
The MTA Bus stop is 2 minutes from the house and goes all the way uptown on the east side. Subway is on the same street, 7 minutes walk from the house. F train (East Broadway stop). The apartment is located between the Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. Good location for runners, two blogs from the water. It's a safe and at night pretty quiet neighborhood. Lots of great and affordable restaurants around.

I was told that Chinatown is how New York was in the 50's. It's very cinematic, quiet at night, busy and colorful during the day. Authentic part of New York. Hipster free. World on it's own.
M15 bus, F train stop East Broadway, City Hall subway. You can walk from here pretty much anywhere. The Brooklyn Bridge is 15 min walk from the apartment.
Living room space I use as my studio. I keep the door closed so we both have enough privacy. If i am here i am usually working.
Access to the entire apartment, bathroom, free wifi.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you to hand you the keys and explain anything if needed.
Chinatown is like Manhattan in the 50's, someone told me. It's very authentic neighborhood, fast moving, very busy, very cinematic but quiet at night.
The F train is only 10 min walk from the apartment. Also near is City Hall subway station. Short walk to the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge. 15min walk to SOHO. You can be in Central Park in 35min. Bus M15, located 5min from the house goes all the way to Harlem on the east side.
You are free to use everything in the kitchen and any tea and coffee you would like. I will provide you with clean bedding and towel. Please no drugs, visitors or animals in the apartment. It's very easy, not complicated apartment.If you want any help navigating the city I will be more then happy to help out, please let me know!
Very easy communication with Bara, and the space appears as listed. It's small, but well located, though quite far in to Chinatown for those wanting a closer Soho walk.
Bara's place was exactly as promised -- clean, comfortable, and very quiet (esp for NYC). I would certainly stay again. Bara was super easy to communicate with.
Bara was extremely welcoming and co-operative. Went out of her way to ensure we were able to obtain easy access to the apartment as soon as we arrived. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and everything re linen and bath towels etc was provided.
Bara is very nice and she makes me very confortable. She is very available and helpful. She has good plans and shares them.
The appartement is well located, quiet and but a little dark and warm.
The reservation was canceled 39 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Don't look any further, stay here! The apartment is small but cozy and equipped with everything you may need. It's conveniently located in Chinatown close to SoHo, Brooklyn and several metro lines, sorrounded by tasty and cheap food places. I haven't met Bara in person, but she made me feel welcome even before I arrived. The communication was very easy and she gave me plenty of good advice. I would stay here again.
