About This Listing
This is a two bedroom apartment. You will have complete access to the kitchen and bathroom as well as the larger of the 2 bedrooms. I will be in the second bedroom.
Located in Chinatown, which is blocks from shopping and galleries in Soho, restaurants and coffee shops in Little Italy, the L.E.S. and Wall Street, but is so much quieter at night than all of those areas. Situated between the entrances to both the Brooklyn and the Manhattan Bridges, you will be in a prime location for stunning walks or bike rides. I know the area well and am happy to offer suggestions.

Raven is an interesting person! And a great host.
The room is good, with AC :-) which you do need in the summer time in NYC. I stayed here for 2 weeks, and had an overall great experience. First I was hesitant about Chinatown, but I actually liked it a lot. Great access to the subway, nice restaurants and bars. I would definitely stay here again :-)
La stanza che Raven mette a disposizione è ottima! Molto ampia, pulita e con una vista stupenda. Come host è stata formidabile, sempre disposta ad aiutarci e ci ha pure fornito un comodo cestino di benvenuto con un sacco di cose utili per il soggiorno.
La zona è centralissima, a pochi minuti a piedi da tutti i maggiori quartieri di downtown.
A wonderful stay in a cracking part of town. If you can handle the stairs you're in for a treat - great view across Chinatown to the Chrysler beyond. Raven was a wonderful host who didn't flinch at either my late arrival, having to work away in the room and locking myself out (sorry).
Raven was a great host. She was very helpful for everything I asked during my one-month stay at her apartment. The apartment building itself is old one in Chinatown but she has kept it very clean . The bedroom was nice and comfortable, with a good view. Kitchen and living room were small but it seemed that all equipments for cooking were there. Upon reading the previous review here, I saw someone who had complain about the bathroom. However, it was completely not true. Although the bathroom itself was small, it was extremely clean and Raven was surely helped all problems.
There are a couple of things that someone may consider - sometimes it is quite loud outside at night, I think due to the sanitary trucks. And this apartment has no elevator.
However, considering the perfect location that you can reach almost all subway in 15 minutes walk and that the all stores for the stay locate just in neighborhood, her apartment would be the best choice if you consider to stay in lower mahattan.
Nous avons séjourné chez Raven 5 jours, du 15 au 20 juin.
Même si nous n'avons presque jamais vu Raven du fait de notre planning très chargé, elle a su être très gentille et prévenante et a tout de suite répondu à nos questions. L'appartement et la chambre sont charmants et tout à fait conformes aux photos du site, par contre faites attention car le quartier est assez bruyant (camion poubelle la nuit), et par fortes chaleurs les odeurs des restaurants sont assez désagréables.
Raven is a wonderful host, friendly and willing to help. Always in touch when needed and quick to answer. The apartment is very nice, 10 minutes walking from the nearest subway. Less than 5 minutes from Soho and Little Italy. Could not have picked a better place in Chinatown. I can highly recommend this place and I would stay here again! Thank you so much Raven
