My cool 2 bedroom apartment has a true city feeling of downtown Manhattan. It comfortably fits two people and it's centrally located on a quiet street just a few blocks away from Soho and East village, with easy access to all major subway lines.
I live in a 2-bedroom apartment in Nolita and I rent out my second bedroom for short-term stays. So you will be SHARING the apartment with me. The room is all to yourself and it is opposite from my room so you have you total privacy. 1 small clean bathroom to share with me.
The apartment is perfectly situated in the heart of the Soho/Nolita neighborhood in Manhattan. The room has a full sized bed, bookshelf, closet, and a drawer. I will provide fresh sheets and bath towels, hair dryer and you can use my shampoo and soap as you wish. The apartment has hardwood floors throughout and it is furnished with extremely well stocked kitchen that is fully available for your use.
The apartment is located in a classic walk-up pre-war apartment building in the 1st floor in one of the coolest and very safe neighborhood, near to lots of restaurants, bars, banks, Laundromat, shops and supermarkets, subway and buses. Perfect for a single person or a couple who wants to visit New York City.
10 minute walk to the East Village, 5 minutes to SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown, 15 minutes to the West Village, 15 minutes to South Street Sea Port and the Brooklyn Bridge.
The closest subway is the F stop Broadway lafayette, N & R Prince and Broadway, 6 Spring Lafayette & the JMZ @ Delancey/Essex is also quite close.
* Please, no cigarette smoking in the apartment,
I am a longtime down town resident and would be happy to share more information upon request.
In general the "rules" are pretty much common sense.
NOT ALLOWED TO INVITE STRANGERS
* SMOKING, DRUGS, and animals are prohibited in my place. Please for your safety, close and lock the door when leaving and coming in. It is a very safe neighborhood and I have never had any concerns but I prefer to be cautious. Do not ever leave the windows open as well.
* Please leave the keys on the key holder by the door entrance when you comeback home so I know you are in the apartment and I will be more concern to no make any extra noise.
* TEA & COFFE: Located by the stove. Please help yourself open the cabinets to look for whatever you might need. Glasses, plates, cups etc…..
If you like to cook during your stay you are welcome to use the kitchen and whatever you might need such as: salt, pepper, spices, olive oil, etc...
* TOWELS and LINENS: Help yourself to the fresh linens and towels in the drawer in your bedroom. Clean towels & sheets have been set on your bed for your use:).
If you are cold there are extra blankets in the red cube storage ottoman by the window.
Paola was a great host. We didn't see her much due to her absence during a part of our visit (so we had the appartment for us). The key transaction was very easy and well organized. She gave us some helpful recommendations when we met her. The appartment is small but very clean and couldn't be bether situated. In middle of super nice restaurants, bars and shops. Wifi was not that fast in the private room (in kitchen works perfectly). We would definitley recommend to stay with Paola.
L'hébergement correspondait au descriptif. La propreté était exemplaire. Le lit était très confortable. Paola a su m'accueillir avec un repas et un bon vin italien le premier soir, et un excellent café, du thé et des cookies à volonté tous les jours. La présence de Paola était un mélange, d'attention et d'écoute mais de discrétion et de respect de ma vie privée. Le quartier de Nolita est très tranquille, comme un village avec une abondance de cafés, restaurants, fréquentés par des artistes et yupees. La ligne de métro N° 6 et la station Spring Str. sont à 2 pas. Le jour de mon départ, Paola m'a invité à quitter l'appartement à l'heure de ma convenance. Ambiance de ce séjour particulièrement détendue.
Paola is a wonderful host. The listing was exactly as it appeared and her apartment was spotless! Great location a very short distance to two subway lines. Paola is a wine rep and was very generous with her sample bottles. She also made me lunch one day and baked gluten-free cookies that were so addictive I told her she had to destroy them for both our sakes. She was very quiet and respectful of my privacy. I would stay at Paola's again.
This is the place to stay if you want to experience living like a new yorker. There are a few subways stations very close to the flat, from you can reach most of the interesting points in the city in minutes (times square, battery park, central park, brooklyn, etc.).
There are also many amenities where you can get food, have a breakfast and even go shopping in Soho (Broadway from Canal St. up to Houston St.).
Finally, you can go by walk to Financial District, Chinatown, Little Italy, Greenwich Village, Meatpacking District.
Paola is very friendly and helpful. She will kindly help you out with any question you could have or recommend places to visit.
We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in NYC.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour chez Paola ! Elle est une excellente hôte et nous a tout de suite fait sentir comme à la maison ! Notre chambre était très propre, les parties communes également.
Le quartier dans lequel se trouve son appartement est SUPER ! L'appartement est très bien placé, près du métro et de toutes les activités phares de New York !
Thank you for all Paola, we will come back :)
Our trip to New York could not have been better - the location of Paola's place was perfect, the room was very clean and cozy, nicely furnished and everything was just the way promised on the airbnb website and even better.
And most of all: Paola herself was the most welcoming and such and wonderful person! She really made us feel like at home and gave us a lot of tips about nice places and restaurants to go etc.
We were two friends staying at her place and both of us really feel that staying at Paola's place was a lot better option than any hotel could have been. When going to New York the next time, we would definitely love go to stay at her place again!
Therefore, 5 stars to Paola on every scale.
Paola is the best host anyone could ask for! When I arrived I immediately felt at home and the apartment was exactly as described. Paola was always willing to give me advice and tips on the best places to go and how to get everywhere. The room is very spacious and comfortable. You won't find a better location than this! This place is within walking distance to everything you need and very close to a few different subway lines which takes you to the centre. Most of all it was Paola who made my stay wonderful. She is very accommodating, respectful, helpful and has a lovely positive attitude! Overall fantastic!!!
My name is Paola and I am from Italy, living in NYC for the past 16 years. I work for a wine importer, obviously I love wine, food and travel. I am looking forward to share my experience in nyc regarding restaurant, shopping, entertainment etc... and to share my apartment with you.
Looking forward to meeting you.
