Are you looking for an awesome furnished room to rent while you're in the city? This room is great if you need a place to crash in between apartments or on vacation by yourself (or a couple).
Apartment Basic Details:
5th floor walk-up (great for butt workout!) in very safe neighborhood with lots of activity downstairs. Apartment is quiet though.
2-bedrooms - Your own private room is furnished with a Queen size bed, dresser and nightstand. Room has a very large closet.
Apartment is fully furnished, Sony entertainment center with 42' flat screen, cable and Wireless Internet.
Full bath w/ amenities, towels/linens.
Huge living room for NYC standards. Clean and newly renovated.
7 large windows - tons of natural light - view of Empire State Building and oldest police precinct in NYC (now luxury condos)
The location is unbeatable - one block away from SoHo, Nolita, and Chinatown, and just two/three blocks away from the 6, J, B, D, N, Q, and R trains.
Apartment is completely stocked and you will not need to purchase one item to move in!
Please be clean and courteous. And do not throw any house parties. Guests are welcome to have friends over to hang out and have fun but nothing crazy! We ask you check in after 5pm the evening you arrive and that you checkout by 11am the day you leave, unless previous arrangements have been made.
Kristin and Banks are very nice! They kept asking us what we need and tried to make our stay more comfortable. They also shared their ideas and gave many useful tips, which made our trip very convenient and money-saving. There are lots of arts in Kristin and Bands' apartment that left us deep impression. Really a good place to learn about New Yorkers' life. Thank you!
The location of the appartment is really nice and makes being a tourist in NYC easier. That said the appartment unfortunately isn't as clean and nicely looking as in the photos here at airbnb. There is much more stuff everywhere.
The appartment is still a fine place to stay during your NYC visit, but you will get supprised by it's appearence compared to the photos of it.
The description of the appartment mentions that the room has a very big closet, which is true, but this closet is mostly filled with Kristin and Banks own stuff and it's therefore not easy to store your own stuff in there, if you're planning to do that.
Overall we had a fine stay, but I'm not sure we would have picked the apparment, if we had seen photos of how it really looks beforehand.
Perhaps we'd had more time to do that once over in the room if we'd not honored your request to check in so early. I hope you enjoyed the visits our complimentary pass gave you to enter the MET, the MoMa, the New Museum and the Guggenheim. Perhaps you're not over the cold you had as you left that we gave you medicine for so that you were comfortable on your bus ride back to Boston after the late check out flexibility we gave you. Think of us when you look at the custom silkscreened cityscape and scenery bike maps we gave you as souvenirs.
Muy buena localización en el corazón de Manhattan. Metro cerca, restorants, minimarktes, etc. Además Krsitin es muy amable, me recibió muy bien, me ayudo a ubicarme en todo momento tanto a la llegada como en la estadía. 100% recomendable para quienes quieran estar en el corazón de New York.
Muchas gracias Kristin amd Angelina Jolie :)

The Host ---
Kristin is a polite, helpful and welcoming person, so is Banks.
The Neighborhood ---
Mulberry is a very heart of Little Italy, which makes it a convenient place to start exploring NYC. Tube stations and cafes are all near and within a walking distance.
The Room ---
The room is clean, warm and very cozy. Bed linen is fresh, towels provided, enough space in wardrobe is available to store your belongings. Facilities (bathroom) is also clean and neat. Sitting room and kitchen area is nicely decorated and available for your morning/evening tea. The apartment is located in 5th floor, there is no elevator, so be prepared to walk your luggage up five levels.
Kristin’s appartment was really cozy and confortable, and it is extremely well located in the middle of Little Italy, with subways just few blocks away (5 min walk). So it was really convenient. I only briefly met Kristin because she was on holiday during my stay, but she was really nice and paid a lot of attention for my venue, taking care I got the keys and that I’m nicely installed in her flat. I really recommend Kristin’s appartment, you will not be disappointed !!!
We enjoyed our stay. The apartment is nice and comfortable and is situated in a great neighbourhood. Kristin & Banks were very friendly and helpful!
I've visited NY for my school break. The room was clean and neat. Kristin's apartment was in heart of little Italy. Great location, 3 min working distance from soho and china town. Also, It was really nice to staying in Kristin's place. She was friendly and open minded person. She also recommended great places to go. Appreciate Kristin and Bank's hospitality and kindness.
