The Space

Situated on a (rare) quiet cul-de-sac in the bustling Lower East Side, this charming apartment was recently renovated completely by the host. Everything is brand new, including a wonderful bamboo floor throughout, bed, electronics and kitchen - which is spacious enough for 4 to dine. Bed is very comfy for 2 people and there is a new fold-out sofa bed that is also great for 2 people.

The apartment gets fantastic light and has great energy. The best feature of course, is that one or two blocks away from this tranquility lies the epicenter of the Lower East Side scene, with all of its fabulous restaurants, bars, live music and nightlife. Wireless internet and cable tv, along woith a Bose sounddock for your iphone.

Within 5 - 10 minutes walk lies, SoHo, East Village, Little Italy.

Apartment is located on the 3rd floor - two flights of stairs up.

Subway is one block away.

Apartment comes equipped with cable, wireless internet linens, dishware, cookware, utensils, cutlery, basic kitchen appliances and cleaning products. Bed linens, bedding and fresh towels are provided. The apartment will be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival and if anything is missing just let me know!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We did not get to meet Larry but we were given the keys and shown around by his assistant.

  • Communication with Larry was very good throughout the booking process and equally so during arrival and check-in. Marlon met us at the appt and was friendly and helpful as he showed us around. Appt is as advertised, simple, clean and well located for LES exploring. Only downside during our stay was some 24hr construction across the street which was a bit noisey in the night on a couple of occasions. All things considered we were very happy with the appt and would definitely consider using it again if back in the neighbourhood.

  • Larry's place was great- we arrived early and met Marlon his assistant at the place, they were still cleaning it up so we had to leave and return after 3. The place is clean and sheets/towels all clean and freshly washed which was great. The apartment itself is perfect for a couple bedroom is small with just bed and small table in it but living room has big couch and kitchen has all utensils you could need. Area is fine- it's in the middle of china town short walk to lower east side and about 10 mins to SOHO. Close to B D and F train. Felt safe in apartment and secure. Couple of negatives- the tv/cable did not work for first 5 days (not that you would be watching it all day while in NY) but would have liked to have it on in the mornings /evenings and it was one of the amenities listed. I did contact Marlon about it and on the 5th day of our trip it started working but we were not told it was back on etc. Secondly - you cannot turn the heating off at all and the bedroom is small with no windows so it was extremely warm every night! We had to use a fan and even with that it was too hot. We asked about this when we arrived and were told there was no way to turn it off- am sure this is fine in the winter but it was warm while we were there and there was no need for it to be on at all... Don't know what the summer months would be like! Finally there was some confusion over check out as we were never told where to leave the keys, we were told check out was at 11 and I texted Marlon to ask could we stay a bit longer as flight was not until 6 and thought he would come to collect the keys. After 2 calls, voicemail and 2 texts to him we just left keys on kitchen table and left. Would recommend getting full confirmation on checking out of the place/where to leave keys etc. when you get the keys as we had no idea what to do and got zero response about it which was a bit frustrating,

    Negatives aside, the place is clean and comfortable and area safe. Was good value for money and we felt very at home and really enjoyed our stay! Thank you :)

  • The place is great. We arrived very late due to a delayed flight, but Larry's assistant was there, even at midnight and helped us with the luggage.
    Very close to the subway and some convenience stores in a quit side street in China town.
    Would definitely stay there again.

  • I had a great stay at Larry's apartment in NYC. The whole experience was hassle free, from check in right through to checking out at the end. Apartment was clean and well equipped which made the stay comfortable. Location is (email hidden)y a short walk to the subway, Chinatown and Little Italy plus all the other wonderful attractions of the Lower East Side. And the heart of NYC only 10 mins away by train. Apartment was very warm as well which was handy on those cold fall days. Would definitely recommend to others looking to experience the diverse and trendy LES.

  • Well you have to know several things about this place
    We've spent a lot of days in New York but only 3 in this location - I wish there could be much more days here! This part of Chinatown is amazingб it is on the border between Little Italy and Chinatown - there are a lot of great places to eat and to shop! and I mean not like some cheap fake shopping and restaurants but really hip places and amazing atmosphere! In the same time – there are planty of cheap and VERY tasty china restaurants where you can buy takeaways and have a dinner at home (china duck mmmm ) We didn't talk much to Larry and actually we've seen him only ones - but he looks very positive and seem to be ready to help (though we didn't need one). The place is bigger than many other which we have seen in New York but if there is more than two of you - it could be a bit narrow )) the place is clean and quite! second floor is not a big deal to get up there) BUT LOCATION!!!)) I will definitely come here again! If Larry will allow )))
