About This Listing
Welcome to New York! My apartment is in classic west Greenwich Village, in downtown Manhattan. If you want to see, eat, drink, and shop at the best of NYC, this is the place! Walk or take the subway anywhere from the most central location in the city
It's a cozy apartment in a classic old New York tennament building. About 500 square feet, all told, but very well laid out. Two small bedrooms (one bedroom has a full mattress, the second has an airbed), a small kitchen, WC (separate rooms for toilet and shower), an extra half bathroom off one bedroom (I'm not counting that in the title here because it's blocked by the bed), and a living room with an additional fold-out sofa bed. It's a walk-up building, on the 4th floor.

My apartment is on the same block as the historic venues (Comedy Cellar, Cafe Wha?, Bitter End), bars (Rabbit Hole, Vol de Nuit), parks (Washington Square Park, Hudson River Park) and amazing food (Mamouns Falafel, Mermaid Oyster Bar, Minetta Tavern) that make up the heart of the Village.
Matthew was a wonderful host, really kind and very amiable. And the location of his apartment is absolutely great, right in the heart of the Village. But beware: His flat is rather narrow and it is not as quiet as some of his guests assert. And the steep stairs are quite a challenge - at least for elderly people like us.
Matt was a great host ! Very helpful. He made himself available for our entire stay. His post help was outstanding. I left a small box with some computer related items. He promptly mailed them safely back to me! I would recommend a stay at Matt's place for sure.
La experiencia fue maravillosa, matt se portó muy bien y siempre estuvo atento a nuestras dudas y siempre con disposición para ayudarnos en lo que fuera necesario. Su departamento era tan cual las fotos, muy bien ubicado, cercano a un metro muy bien conectado.
La casa estaba limpia y ordenada.
Son duda fue una gran experiencia
On top of being on a perfect location (close to the subways, Blecker street, restaurants, super markets), Matt's appartment was very clean and everything was prepared for us (maps, us/europe power adapter).
Matt was really welcoming and arranging. He gave us a lot of tips on the neighbourhood and on the fun events around it (Pillow fight at Washington square was nice :)).
I recommend it wihtout any doubt.
We just arrived back from a beautiful stay in NYC. Being able to stay at Matt's apartment, which is nice, clean and located in a gorgeous area really enhanced our experience. If you want to be close to numerous restaurants, bars and cafés, but also be at a walking distance from shops, Washington Square and Union Square, plus a good subway station, I would really recommend this place! Matt was also incredibly attentive before our arrival and made sure we had all information necessary for our stay.
Everything is as described. Host was there on time. The place is on a noisy street but the bedrooms are very quiet, I never had any trouble sleeping. I was there in freezing temperatures and it was nice that there was extra warm blankets provided for the bed and the couch. Location is great for restaurants and bars. It's an older more worn apartment but that's what I was expecting.
The apartment was as photographed and the instructions for collecting the keys were perfect. We were expected and welcome. The area was lively and fun however we felt quite safe and secure. Thebedrooms were really quiet and we could sleep easily.
