Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed at Jonathan´s for nine days and had a fantastic experience. It was our first stay in a apartment through Airbnb and everything went perfect. Jonathan was very helpful (email hidden), both before and during the stay. If we had any questions Jonathan had an answer and he was also very very helpful when our flight got delayed a couple of hours, eveything went well with handing over the keys and things like that. The apartment was very pretty and just what we needed. It was clean, had a fresh bathroom&kitchen and there was great some artwork! I wouldn´t call it a downside but there was a lot of noise from the streets and the bars around, especially during the weekend, after all it´s New York and it didn´t bother me or my family. :) The neighborhood was very good and eveything, such as subways and grocery stores were close. If I would sum everything it up I would say it couldn´t have been better, both with the apartment and with Jonathan. I would defenitly stay here again!! :D

  • Jonathan was a nice and helpful host. He gave me all the instructions needed and also a lot of suggestions, not only when arranging the trip but also during the period I spent in New York. He does all his best to satisfy any kind of request a traveller shows. Even if we hadn't the opportunity to meet, he continuously got in touch with us by mails asking for possible needs we could have.
    The apartment was clean and comfortable with all the stuff you can need . The inflatable mattress was also comfortable, my children slept on it without any problem. The bathroom was also clean and perfectly working.The location is grateful, in the heart of the East Village with a lot of coffees, bars, restaurants in the neighbourhood. Also the atmosphere you can breathe in the East Village is particular and interesting.
    I strongly recommend this location and its fantastic host!!!
    The location is also close to a Subway Station (Astor Place in 5/10 minutes) that can easily connect you to the rest of the City.

  • Jonathan (email hidden)om the moment I sent a booking request he has been very helpful and communicative. Picking up keys was exactly as he described and there was lots of information in the apartment that he had left recommending restaurants and bars in the area, which was really helpful.

    The apartment was perfect for what we needed! It has good wifi and comfortable beds with the added bonus of earplugs for those of us who are not used to sleeping in New York! The location could not be better for visiting all the sites and there is a subway line within a couple of blocks. We would definitely go back again and I would be recommending to friends!

  • Jonathan's place was amazing. He was there to greet us when we arrived and had plenty of suggestions for local places to eat/drink/hangout. The neighborhood was perfect, close to transit and walking distance to everything you need. The only downside was the noise, but he provided earplugs and a white noise machine that made it perfectly fine, just not ideal for a light sleeper (I was fine). I highly recommend this place!

  • Fantastic apartment in a great location with close proximity to most subway lines. The place was clean and comfortable and very well heated for the -18 degrees Celsius weather outside. Might be a little noisy at night but it is New York after all!
    Bed, sofa and air mattress were all very comfortable to sleep in. We had four people and there was plenty of space for us.
    Full kitchen with clean plates and cutlery with optional use of the nescafe machine which was a godsend.
    There is an elevator to get up to the third floor so you don't have to take the stairs.

    Jonathan (email hidden) with prompt and consistent communication and is very organised! He left us a folder of instructions for the apartment and also a list of recommendations for restaurants and bars in the area which was very useful!

  • We stayed for a week at Jonathon's place in December, on our first visit to NYC. His apartment was exactly what we were looking for, and we absolutely loved having it as our base throughout our stay. Excellent location, really spacious, clean and cosy - exactly as described. The bed was super comfy and communication with Jonathon was quick and easy. He's also got great taste! We'd absolutely recommend staying at Jonathon's and he'd be our first choice for a second visit - thanks again :)

  • Jonathan's place kicks ass! Super clean, aesthetically awesome and in a great neighborhood. Communicating with Jonathan was easy and he was always kind and helpful. You can feel his genuine care for making his place feel like home for his guests. My only regret was that I did not get to meet him face to face (though he was always available and responsive via phone) so I could tell him in person what an awesome stay we had. Book this East Village pad. You'll love it.

  • We had a fantastic time! Honestly it felt like a home away from home! We can not wait to come back and stay there again.
    It was the perfect location, such a comfortable apartment we loved the art work too! Nothing like being so close to a whole foods to we are jealous you live so close:) Thank you again Jonathan for being so accommodating it was a pleasure especially since it was our first airbnb experience!
