The Neighborhood

This is the sexy East Village of NYC! So much character, such a wonderful, young "vibe" and "feeling". You'll see why so many poets and artists arose from this area. The East Village is a perfect mix of a "neighborly" area full of residents, but also has so many attractions for visitors too! There are so many restaurants and bars and cafes! You'll need to visit the famous Saint Marks Place, in the heart of the East Village. It is classic NYC. You'll love it!

  • Séjour d une semaine en février. 3 personnes, l appartement, nous servant uniquement de point de chute: départ le matin après un petit déjeuner et retour pour y dormir en fin de soirée.

    - Appartement conforme a l annonce. Ce n est pas le grand luxe, mais cela reste très correct.
    - Bonne literie
    - drap et serviettes propres fournis
    - calme, car en arrière cours. On entend pas les bruits de la rue.
    - tres bien situé :restos, bars, commerces et métro a proximité. Quartier sympa.
    - petit soucis. Mais rien de grave: impossibilité de mettre en route le micro onde et un autre appareil électrique simultanément, les plombs sautes. Si vous chercher le compteur, il se trouve dans la petite chambre.
    Un bon séjour, donc pour notre usage.

  • The apartment was exactly what it said on the airbnb website. Communication with John and Lucy was excellent and Mike met us on time and was very friendly. The place was clean with fresh sheets and towels. It needs some tlc( tender loving care) such as the bathroom tiles and windows. The sitting area was tiny and there was no room to put our luggage. On the positive side it was quiet,comfortable beds, hot shower, everything worked except the wifi and the location was fantastic. With a bit of an update this place could be terrific.

  • We were 4 in the flat. 2 very good points : 1/ very well located in NY with direct connections to bus and subways. 2/ The beds/matresses were good. Rest is very rudimentary, few natural light and flat maintained at the minimum.
    Bad points that spoiled a bit our stay : St Marks Place area is very busy in the evening and night, a kind of "hippies" area (actually we were not aware)...with noise sometimes in the night made by the neighbors (flats are not well isolated) and tramps sleeping in front of the building in the morning...But the most difficult things for us was that there was no natural air circulating in the rooms (only A/C), with no possibility to really open the windows (not so clean outside). Anyway, we spent globally a good stay, spending more time outside ! We just used it for sleeping and taking breakfast. Good connections with the owner representative at our arrival and during our stay.

  • The apartment is great, with a good location, close to metro and many major shops. Although the furniture are not new, the house was very clean and well cared for. Our host greeted us promptly, introduced us to the apartment and recommended looking him any difficulty. The only thing that bothered us during our stay were the locks that were damaged hindering the use of the key. Moreover, all ok. I recommend and thank John and Mike for being part of this great journey.

    Response from John And Lucy:

    Hi Clarissa, glad you enjoyed your stay. We have put a completely new lock into the door for this apartment so there are no more security issues! :)
    (Anyway, the building and neighborhood are actually VERY VERY safe.)
    Come on back any time!!!!

  • We really enjoyed our (email hidden) Marks Place apartment in July. The apartment was large enough for 4 of us to live comfortably.

    The best thing about it was the location. I would really recommend it to young travellers who intend to enjoy the NYC nightlife. There are some really cool bars and restaurants that are walking distance from the (website hidden) Marks Place itself is a busy street day and night. However we never heard any street noise from the apartment and the fact that its busy makes it a really safe area to be in at night.

    There is a metro station close by so grab a 7 day pass if your staying for a while.

    Only thing I have to say is that one of the bedrooms didn't have a working air conditioner (and in July it got very hot). But we worked around that from buying a fan from KMart and then returning it when we left. The other rooms have air-conditioning and they work well.

    However overall the apartment provided a great NYC experience and I would defiantly stay here again.

  • The location of the apartment is exactly as described and it was clean. But the apartment is much more worn down than on the pictures. The lock on the front door is mended with duckt tejp, the tiles on the bathroom floor are loose, the drain in the bathtub is extremely rusty, the bathroom window is disgusting and all in all the apartment would definately need some fixing up.

    Hi Caroline,
    Thanks for the input. We have just recently painted the apartment with a fresh coat of paint. We are in the midst of making further renovations! Hopefully it'll be ready for new guests :)

  • John and Lucy were fantastic hosts. The apartment is located in a fantastic area and we really did get the NYC experience staying there. The amenities were all satisfactory and I would definitely stay there again!

  • Great location and Lucy was super helpful. The apartment however is a student style accommodation, so very basic. Facilities are dated and as per previous reviews, the beds squeaking kept everyone up at night, as did the noisy airconditioning from the surrounding apartments. I know it's a city apartment, but there was a mouse that managed to nibble through our luggage! It would be fine for 2 adults or 3 at a push, no more.

    Response from John And Lucy:

    hi Ira,
    we have hired a professional exterminator to ensure that there is no longer a mouse problem. we have also scheduled for all the beds to be replaced with brand new beds. thanks for the information. hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise!

  • Première expérience avec Airbnb. John et Lucy sont des hôtes d'une fiabilité et d'une réactivité exemplaire.
    Appartement conforme au descriptif, bien situé dans Manhattan, mais vieillot, des travaux de rénovation seraient à prévoir dans la sdb ainsi que des rangements supplémentaires dans la 2e chambre. La literie est très confortable (les plastiques la protégeant sont un peu bruyants). Cuisine bien équipée. Nous recommandons cette location particulièrement bien située pour découvrir Manhattan. Nous étions 5 personnes et avons utilisé l'appartement pour le couchage et le petit déjeuner uniquement.

  • We arrived late in the evening and getting access to the apartment was nice and easy and took only about 30 min that evening from JFK by taxi.
    On the downside the apartment interior seems way past its best, the beds creaked so loudly that you could hear it from one room to the other if somebody would just turn over during the night, the doors didn't close properly, tiles in the bathroom floor were loose etc. and all in all the cleanliness of the apartment wasn't good.
    The location however was really great for exploring Manhattan.
