You're right by the F train (one block away at 2nd Ave station - at 1st Ave) and in the heart of lower Manhattan at Lower East Side/East Village/Soho.
This is a two bedroom apartment; bedrooms are *30 feet apart* - lots of privacy. The room has a double bed and a futon, will have one or two individual people OR a couple (this rate is for two people only; more than two people pay extra).
Price is the same for one or two people per night and is $155 per night. More than 2 people is $50 per person per night extra. Children 10 and under are free.

This is the BEST location in New York, bar none. If you don't know Manhattan, don't believe the hype; mid-town is the worst. East Village/Lower East Side is the BEST location for bars, free live music, funky boutiques, cheap but amazing restaurants. West Village is pricey; East Village/LES is what the West Village used to be before it got too expensive, making the East Village/LES the bohemian arty hang-out in the city.
This apartment is exactly in the middle of everything; where the East Village meets the Lower East Side at Orchard and Houston streets and 5 blocks from Soho.
One block from the F and M trains (Lower East Side/2nd Ave - at the 1st Ave exit), this apartment is in the center of everything. Brilliant nightlife, live music (Living Room, Rockwood Music Hall, The National Underground all 2 mins walk or less), bars (too many to name - but the Sixth Ward downstairs has the largest beer garden for 15 blocks and has a happy hour Mon - Wed ALL NIGHT drinks for $3 - til 4am!!), inexpensive but fantastic restaurants (one Himalayan, one Mexican, one Thai, two French all within 1 min walk), great walks (5 long blocks from the East River) and right on top of the subway (F train runs right up the center of Manhattan); this location doesn't get any better.
VERY SAFE at night. Yet, even though you're in the center of everything, the room is very quiet because you've got double-glazing and you're 5 floors up. Don't worry, there's an elevator (unusual for round here).
Bright (two large double-glazed windows - up 5 floors, lots of light), a double-sized bed, a separate double-sized futon, TV, desk and chair, side table, A/C and adjustable GF heating, built-in closet. Clean linens and towels included. Iron and ironing board in the room. Use of hairdryer in the bathroom.
Me: I let out my spare room year round, and I've sublet my own room each time I go away (maybe 3 times a year) and everyone who's stayed here has enjoyed the place. This will be the same with you I'm sure. I'm pretty flexible and keen to make your stay here as happy as possible, so any requests, just ask. I can supply references from previous guests on request. More info about me is here: suzanne (website hidden) I rely on references and recommendations, so any comments on my page here very welcome after you depart.
If you're not in the country, I'm happy to have a friend of yours or whomever, to come by and take a look. First come, first served.
If this all sounds good to you, get in touch.
This was a clean, safe, small apartment in a convenient location. No frills, but all the basics were covered -- a place to sleep, to eat and get washed up. The room was a reasonable size for two friends in NYC for an event. It could have worked for three as well (as long as people don't crave personal space or mind sharing a bed!) or even a family of four, although I imagine things might be cramped in the rest of the apartment with that many people. You will certainly see how many New Yorkers live -- not in their apartments (because of their size), but out and about in the city! The local area can be hopping at night with upscale bars and restaurants, a young crowd, but makes the area safe and populated for coming back at night. Great, reasonably-priced places to eat. I used the nearby subway to get around to everything. The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is just down Orchard St.
Comfortable, welcoming and in an ideal location 2 mins walk from 2nd Ave station. Many thanks indeed. DJH.
Unfortunately, I ended up not making my trip to NYC, so I wasn't able to stay at Suzanne's place. She went out of her way to make me feel welcome before the stay though! She sent me a great neighborhood guide full of information should any situation arise; she also included a guide on how to get to her place from the 3 major airports. I will definitely stay at her place next time I'm in NYC.
Suzanne was a gracious host, checked in on us, and made sure all our needs were met. I would definitely stay here again.
Suzanne was very sweet and really accomodating to all of our needs and great with follow up and communication. My husband and I needed a place to crash to be able to travel on foot to wedding we were going to that evening and then also close to my friend's show the following day - both on the lower East Side and we saved tons of money just being able to get to our destinations easily on foot which is exactly what we were able to do from Suzanne's apartment. She even offered to let us leave our luggage in the apt later than normal just to help us out. It was pretty cool neighborhood and sure beat paying the price of almost or above four hundred dollars just to stay in NYC. Plus we were staying in the heart of a cool funky neighborhood with lots of cool restaurants and night sights to see!
The location was excellent - a few short blocks from Broadway (and Wholefoods!). Above all, Suzanne was incredibly helpful: my train was delayed so I arrived a little after after midnight and I was still welcomed with smiles and a warm hug.
The room is spacious and it has everything you need - including an elevator!
Suzanne is a lovely host. Her apartment is located in a great neighborhood, full of restaurants with subway lines nearby. The guest room is comfortable, well-appointed, and very clean. We would definitely stay with her again!
Really loved the stay! Suzanne was very welcoming and the best host. Great neigberhood and you will receive a guide from Suzanne as well. Would love to stay there agin when we come back to N.Y.
Suzanne was a lovely host, and her flat was perfect for what we were looking for; a place to crash in NYC and to explore from. Very easy to access, and what a cool neighborhood! Will be back soon!!
Suzanne was a great host and had a wealth of knowledge about the neighborhood. Her apt was close to everything (whole foods, restaurants, bars) and within walking distance for shopping. She was very accommodating and her cat was super friendly! Would definitely stay again!
