Serge was a wonderful host! He was very prompt with his replies and provided detailed directions from the airport to his flat. He also provided us with awesome recommendations to restaurants/bars/things to do in the area and a welcome note with a bottle of wine. Perfect host!
The flat is beautifully decorated, clean, quiet, and has probably one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The flat is in a great location - just a couple of blocks to the subway. I highly recommend staying here! It was a perfect way to celebrate my husband's birthday. We definitely will be staying here again when we come back to NYC.
We had a lovely stay in serge's apartment. He was considerate and left us a bottle of wine, and lots of fresh linen and towels and basic ingredients. The apartment is on a lovely street in a great area - lots of good coffee and food within a walk.
The walk but the stairs with a big case is a bit of a challenge, and the Friday and Saturday night revellers were a bit noisy - but heck we were in New York. The apartment is smaller than it looks on the photos but I stayed comfortably with my adult daughter and her boyfriend and they stayed in the spare room and gave me the incredibly comfortable king size beds. We were happy with our stay would would recommend.
This was my first experience with airbnb and I had some concerns about sending money to a third party to secure a stay at a privately owned accommodation. I worried about it right up to the point of walking through the door. Turns out, it was a perfect place for us! Everything was as described. Location was great. Serge was helpful in his communications and prompt with his replies. There were treats for us when we arrived. We would stay here again and we would recommend this place to our friends.
This place is absolutely gorgeous and I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. I stayed here with my parents and we were all very impressed by the design and charm of the apartment. It's cozy, quiet, very clean and well located on 7th Street in the heart of the East Village. There is actually a Hastens bed in the larger room, which my parents loved and was their first time sleeping in one. I slept very well in the guest room which was far enough from their room for great privacy. We asked Serge where he purchased the bedding because the sheets were very soft, clean and comfortable. Serge is a perfect host and answered all our questions right away, and he supplied the place with wine, snacks and water for our arrival which is a delight and a treat. We received a very good inside list of recommendations for the neighborhood from Serge, and my parents and I took him up on one of the recommendations and had dinner at a fantastic Greek restaurant called Pylos. This was the best Greek food we've had in our lives and highly recommend this restaurant to all guests staying (it's only a little over a block away on 7th Street heading toward Avenue A). The apartment had beautiful lighting with very unique chandeliers, and all of the lighting is on dimmers so we could control the mood which is nice. There was good seating in the apartment so we could have a nice chat and a drink on the table, all we had to do was bring one small chair over from the master room to place across from the small sofa. The bathroom was great and we loved the old style vintage hanging rod for the shower. Thanks for making our experience so wonderful and cheers on the apartment! Highly Recommended !!
Loved staying here. The apartment was very clean, well fitted out and very homely. The location is perfect - a few blocks away from the L Subway, closer to a few other lines which gave us perfect access to both Manhattan and Brooklyn. Best coffee just around the corner and plenty to eat, do and see all within walking distance.
I've stayed in a few Airbnbs and it's always the small touches that make a stay more memorable. Serge left some basic condiments for us (tea, sugar etc), mints on our beds and, wait for it, a bottle of wine and some snacks. Unheard of!
The one thing I would say is that the water in the shower was pretty light and the hot took about 5 minutes to start up, which I'm told is fairly standard for NYC apartments (I remember a Seinfeld episode to this effect anyway).
Serge is the most wonderful host !!
When we arrived at the apartment it was very clean and with a beautiful decoration... This place Rocks !!!
In addition, some touches waiting for us on arrival (small chocolate on the bed, bottle of water and a bottle wine with a nice welcoming word !) This is the first time I see that :)
Serge has always been very helpful and gave us full of good places in his neighborhood.
The apartment is ideally located for those who want to come to NY to live like New Yorkers.
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable .... shame not to have met you :)
I LOVE Serge's place. It's exactly as it was in the photos, but they don't do it justice. Charming and thoughtful in every detail, and just beautiful. The check in procedure was easy and the chocolates and snacks and wine that serge left were much appreciated. The bed is comfortable and the place was spotlessly clean. Totally recommended.
Awesome little place, with everything you need (bearing in mind New Yorkers don't cook so the kitchen is perfect for making tea, toast and heating up soup).
It's quiet at night, yet close to everything you need and only a ten minute walk to the nearest subway station which gets you everywhere fast. Buy a 7 day pass for just $30.
Awesome diner called Odessa, 119 Avenue A which is just a couple of blocks away. Ask for Willie the owner and tell him two English girls sent you.
Serge was a great communicator, checked that we had arrived safely and arranged for us to leave our bags on site for our last day so we could collect them before our flight home.
I know the flat's listing mentions stairs rather than a lift, arriving with heavy luggage to discover three flights of stairs was a bit of a shock but the rest of the time it wasn't a problem for us.
We would highly recommend Serge's little flat and will definitely return :-D
The apartment was perfect for two people or two couples. It has an authentic New York look, maybe a little tight depending on your needs(no real living room space) but your in NYC! so hopefully that's not necessary. Serge's service was top notch we were there to check out the restaurant scene so serge emailed me a list of different places to check out in the neighborhood which was really helpful. I really cant say enough about Serge's customer service !
I have just returned home from a week in NYC where I went for work and pleasure. Serge's apartment was perfect for both. It is close to all forms of public transportation (buses, subway, cabs) and if you don't want to take any of these, then it's very easy to walk everywhere. We got to discover some of the many eating and drinking venues in the neighbourhood and by the time we left, we were starting to feel like locals. I would highly recommend this apartment. Serge was very responsive to our particular needs and we certainly felt very welcome, even though we didn't meet him in person. But this was not a problem because we knew that he was only a phone call away if we needed him. I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you like the idea of staying in the East Village with its eclectic blend of bars, restaurants and clubs.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
