The two bedrooms are located on the top floor of the loft. One bedroom has a new sealy brand queen sized bed, a huge 52 inch flat screen tv and a desk. The other bedroom has a new sealy brand double bed. Both beds were purchased in July of 2013. There is also a futon in the second bedroom which opens up to a double bed that is great to sleep on as well. Both bedrooms are completely separate from each other and each offers complete privacy from the rest of the loft. The second full bathroom is here as well.
The pull out couch downstairs offers additional sleeping options. The mattress can sleep 2 people and the chaise part of the couch is the size of a twin bed and is very comfortable to sleep on top of. The loft can accommodate up to 9 guests, with 2 people on each of the 3 mattresses , 2 people on the futon and 1 person on top of the chaise lounger.
★Check in/Check out★ Flexible except when there are guests arriving and departing on the same day and ample time needs to be allowed between guests for cleaning. I am almost always able to accommodate travel schedules.
★ Fall 2013 Improvements!★- New upgrades include: New Black out curtains in the master bedroom. new reading lamps in both bedrooms; Toaster, New massaging shower head in upstairs bathroom and new ironing board.
★Approximately every 2-3 months★ (or more frequently if necessary) all the core bedding items (sheets, pillow cases, blankets) are replaced with brand new ones. All sleeping pillows and towels are also replaced. The shower curtains are also replaced frequently so they may differ from the ones in the photos.
★Note on total cost and payment★
I am often asked what the total cost will be. When you make an inquiry, airbnb calculates the total price for you including any extras, such as fees, based on your travel dates and the amount of people you are traveling with. Airbnb charges guests a booking fee that varies in percentage and I have no information about how they determine it so I cannot give you an accurate total cost.
★ Please rely on the total cost that the website automatically calculates for you. ★
Airbnb handles all payments and once you make a reservation, they hold the money and do not release it to hosts until a day after the guest arrives. The nightly rate for the loft can vary by season, demand and availability and is shown in the calendar.
★GETTING INTO THE LOFT★
Guest are always met at the loft either by myself or a friend upon arrival and given a tour and keys. I always send a very detailed email a few days before arrival with directions and everything you will need to make your stay at the loft a wonderful experience!
Minimum stay is 3 nights, but I will accept reservations for 2 nights if there are only 2 nights the loft is available between guests. My calendar is updated daily.
The apartment is very centrally located, in the East Village, steps from Tompkins square park, a 5 minute walk to Houston Street where you can catch the F or M train, (there is also a huge Whole Foods here), a 10 minute walk to Astor place where there are even more subways, and 10 minutes to SoHo. I love walking everywhere, but if you don't, there is a bus (M14) that has a stop right across the street that arrives every 5 or so minutes during the day.. You can take this bus to the West side and check out the West Village and the Meatpacking District and the popular High Line Park. This bus also takes you to Union Square Park which is always bustling with activity. At Union Square you can get a transfer to several major subway lines (L, N Q, R , 4, 5, 6). When you are exhausted and want to return to the loft, the bus will literally drop you off right in front of the door! It doesn't get more convenient than that! Of course if you prefer you can easily catch a cab in front of the loft for door to door service.

What a great stay we had in a wonderful apartment in a prime location! The apartment was comfortable and spacious. Toni was flexible with arrangements and prompt in her communication. All are in favor for staying again for our next friend reunion!
Toni was a fabulous host. Althouh we didn't get to meet her this trip - her friend met me and showed me around and gave me the keys - Toni checked in frequently and made sure we were settled in and had everything we needed to insure a great visit. The pictures are very accurate - yes, the loft really is that big! We've already booked the apartment for our next visit to NY and can't wait to stay there again.
Situation excellente ,parfait pour deux couples , Enjoy !!!
Absolutely lovely place! Right next to the great nightlife of Alphabet City.
The snow of Jan 2014 gave us some real headaches with travel but Toni was super helpful and very accommodating which made our stay so much easier.
Our group from Australia found the stay at Toni's glass loft really great.
Getting there was easy, we ended up catching cabs from Penn station because our luggage would have been a bit hectic on the subway down to East Village. We met Toni's housekeeper there, who was lovely and showed us around. For a group of 8 and it was a good amount of room. The apartment was clean, easy and so bright and spacious downstairs.
The neighborhood was good, a little away from the busiest streets, which was nice. Plenty of great food only a block away on 1st and 2nd avenue and St Marks Place and also a cute cafe across the road from the apartment with decent coffee.
We caught the subway everywhere. It was a good 5min walk from the apartment. Once on the subway it was easy to get anywhere.
Toni made everything simple and easy for us to stay in the apartment. Would definitely recommend the apartment for a group.
The apartment is in a great location. The apartment itself is very open and airy with great light. Toni was super accommodating and the apartment was well maintained and pretty clean.
I was disappointed with the layout. There are two bedrooms on the second floor. The second floor full bathroom is in the smaller bedroom, not the master so it made sharing the area difficult and frankly awkward. The only option was to walk downstairs to use the main floor bathroom.
Overall the apartment is nice. Nothing spectacular but a nice option to save money in the city.
Toni is a fastidious and attentive host who did everything she could to ensure we had a great experience. The apartment is huge and extremely well equipped. It's very neat and tidy and finished to a high standard. It's also in a great location, not far from some superb restaurants, bars and other attractions. Definitely great value for money and much, much better than a hotel!
Hi. Myself and 6 friends stayed in the loft for 3 nights. It was perfect. Great location and a great space. We will deffinetly book the lift again when visiting NYC. Toni was great to deal with. Everything was easy from getting keys to checking out. Toni responded immediately to any questions we had. I would give this a score of 10 out of 10.
