About this listing
Freshly renovated room in our place in THE BEST neighborhood in Manhattan. All you could possibly want in an awesome New York City stay- right at your fingertips! Great apartment, great neighborhood, great amenities. Coffee, tea & breakfast are free!
Private room in our lovely, newly renovated modern apartment! Tons of light. Small... but everything you need! [It's Manhattan... not Brooklyn. ;) ]
Full use of all common areas: kitchen, bathroom, living room... Coffee and tea are free! So are bananas and bagels, butter and jam for breakfast.
Interaction with Guests
Although I'm away working a lot, I've lived in the neighborhood for 11 years and will be around to answer any questions or give advice on dining, going out, etc.
Literally the best neighborhood in Manhattan to call home base on your visit. Loaded with fantastic restaurants, bars, cafes, music venues, art galleries, boutiques... you name it!
Just a few blocks away from the F, J & M trains. And right across the Williamsburg Bridge from Brooklyn.
Other Things to Note
A sweet, shy cat named Benito lives here... but he'll stay out of your hair.
No smoking inside the apartment please.
Very nice and tidy appartment. The bed is comfy and the room is surprisingly quite - aircon has v much appreciated. Michelle and Richard were very polite and helpful when we had any queries, but other than that we barely saw them.
Our only slight issue was that the bedroom is very small!
Would be ok if you didnt have much luggage but we had a lot so really struggled for floor space.
This aside, we would definatley recommend staying with Michelle and her family.
We enjoyed 15 through 18 July 2015 in Lower Side Manhattan in Michelle's place. Everything is like what is descripted in the Airbnb post but the cat's name! ;-) Nice, clean, tidy, small but comfortable, the stairs might be better but all that is in Michelle's control is just fine and welcoming. Nice hosts as well and convenient place few minutes from Metro F which brings you everywhere! I'd for sure go back to this place. Thanks!!!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour!L appartement était très bien situé, propre, accueillant et le lit confortable !
Michelle est sympathique et très discrète, nous ne l avons pas beaucoup vue durant notre séjour !
We had a wonderful time at M’s place. Nice location. Only a few minute’s walk to the subway station and the room was exactly as shown on the photos. The key pickup went smooth and a kind bystander helped us to bring our suitcases upstairs. We were very happy with the airco in our room because is was hot in Ney York City. The coffee and bagels in the morning are a nice touch! Michelle and her friend are very kind. It was our first experience with Airbnb, but certainly not the last! It was a pleasure to stay at Michelle’s place and we can recommend it to anyone who want to see New York.
Michelle and her family were very friendly and welcoming. The listing was accurate and she also accommodated by allowing us to drop our bags before the agreed check in time. The neighborhood is great with nice coffee shops and close to transport. the bed was very good. The room is a bit small, and the bathroom is shared among everybody in the apartment but everything was spotlessly clean.
We can only give the best of review to Michelle and her family, they were wonderful hosts. The location is very, very good, close to central metro/subway lines going to the center. But at this location you can easily walk to the sights in lower Manhattan.
The house is very clean and cosy. Michelle and her BF are very friendly . We enjoyed our stay there.
About the Host, Michelle
I've been living in New York City for 11 years, and happily call the Lower East Side my home. I love to travel and plan to keep at it for the rest of my life. While I'm writing my first novel, I work in a well-known restaurant in Manhattan. I moved to NY from Illinois to get my Master's degree from Columbia University. Exploring, cooking, reading... some of the things I love.
