The Space

Great loft in the heart of SoHo, on a quaint bustling street. Loft has a massive living space with dining area makes for a great place to chill. Also has a theatre/rehearsal space within the loft with live shows to entertain, so great for the artist. Big bedroom with double bed, large window and closet offer a comfortable and private place to sleep and light breakfast goods are in fridge for you to help yourself to. Also juice bar for the healthier travellers, (great fruit and veg stall around the block).
Building is super safe and each room is lockable so total privacy for my guests.
Bathroom is shared.
Elevator opens into space, however operates at unusual hours, closed at nights and sundays. Apt is close to all subway lines and is situated in the heart of Downtown Manhattan close to China town, Little Italy, L.E.S, and East Village. Lots of great shops, bars, clubs and everything NYC has to offer. Close to broadway which has lots of great shopping and boutiques so perfect for the shopaholic.

I have a small hypoallergenic dog called buster. Super friendly and very rarely leaves my bedroom :)

  • Great place to stay... I liked the place so much, it's very close to the subway, Chinatown, little Italy... Many restaurants, good food :)) .... I give this place 10/10 ... Charolette is very helpful, I always texted her before and after I came to soho ... Thank you so much Charolette :))

  • The location is great but we consider that the pictures shown on the web site are misleading. We have barely seen Charlotte and clearly she didn't give us a very warm welcome. She wasn't very available prior to our arrival and not available at all when we left (we just drop the keys on a table somewhere in the flat as she never answered our messages). The appartment is used for some performances bringing close to 30 people in the flat and we had never warned neither invited to assist to those "shows". So you end up being back home finding out that a little crowd is gathering in the flat (hopefully the bedroom can be locked).
    This is a typical "NYC AirBnB money making" to financially support a life in Manhattan so don't expect here what can be great with AirBnB in other places.

    Response from Charlotte:

    I am very sorry that you feel this way about my space. The shows are a part of what makes my apartment unique and special. They are explained in the bio about the place on this site and also on the paper left for guests explaining keys and apartment. I did tell you when I showed you apartment that you were welcome to watch any of the shows you wished too. In regards to not being warm welcoming you, I am surprised and hurt by that, as most reviews comment on my warm welcome. I do not however babysit my guests, rather try to answer questions and make suggestions. Agreed my space may not have been a good match for you, and I wish you well for your next airbnb venture

  • Charlotte was super friendly and greeted us on arrival. The apartment was really cool, with interesting decorations and the famed performance space, and good air conditioning. Our room was neat and charming.
    The location was awesome, super close to China Town, lots of great cafes, bars, venues etc. It's NYC..
    I would definitely recommend staying here.

  • Had an amazing time in NYC at this place! Charlotte was lovely and was always there in a pinch for us. Great location and so many good brunch spots so close. The apartment is stunning and it feels like you are walking into a Pinterest page. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Great locations in the middle of Soho. Be prepared to be living with people from all over the world and that it might get crowded and loud. But if you are open and easy going it is going to be GREAT! I had a really good time, Charlotte is a very kind person and a good host. I would totally consider booking this place again when I go to New York next time.

  • the best thing about the place is its location, place is used as a small theater saloon as well but its sometimes hard to share one bathroom with other three rooms, room was clean and nicely decorated it was a nice experience

  • Charlotte was so kind to accept me on such a short notice. She constantly kept in communication with me to insure that I was able to get the key and arrive at her loft with ease. I loved the loft. It satisfied my fantasy of falling asleep in a fun furniture store!

  • Concernant Charlotte,Elle etait absente à notre arrivée à l'appartement.Une personne qui louait aussi une chambre nous a ouvert mais n'en savais pas plus.Cette personne s'est proposé pour nous amené dans un déli ou Charlotte avait laissé les clés pour elle, mais ne connaissant pas le quartier, on a tourné 20 minutes sans retrouver le (website hidden) final, on est retourné à l'appart ou là, la personne nous a donné les identifiants pour le wifi de l'appartment; Nous avons alors pu regarder sur notre boite mail pour retrouver le message envoyé par charlotte nous donnant les indications pour trouver les clés.Nous n'avons croiser Charlotte que 2 jours après, Elle ne nous a pas conséillé d'adresse particulière pour les sorties malgré nos demandes.Elle nous a egalement demandé l'heure de notre départ par sms puis nous l'a imposé par sms toujours alors qu'elle était dans sa chambre à l'appartement et nous dans la cuisine;l'ambiance n'etait donc pas extra.Finalement, elle nous a laissé garder les clés jusqu'à notre départ pour l'aéroport.
    Concernant l'appartement, il ne correspond pas vraiment aux photos dans le sens ou c'est beaucoup plus encombré au niveau du (website hidden) y a plus de chaise ,de meubles et c'est plutot en désordre tout le temps.En effet, des groupes louent le séjour pour des show ou des spectacles.Un soir, 20 personnes ont débarqués dans le salon, et toutes ces personnes utilisent les toilettes de l'appart, boivent un verre, et après leur départ, les verres sales et les bouteilles (website hidden) femme de ménage passe une fois dans la semaine.Le rideau de douche était plein de traces noires d'humidité.
    L'appartement est situé au 3e etage, au rez de chaussé, il (email hidden) et de l'autre coté de la rue, une (website hidden) chambre donne coté rue donc très très bruyante jusqu'à 4h du matin environ.Prévoir les boules Quiès.

  • Loved that Charlotte's loft felt very New York. We were treated to a comedy show on the night we arrived & it was great fun. The room was just what we needed, nothing more. Great location for walking around in SoHo or to many of the wonderful surrounding neighborhoods.

  • Remember when you were 16 you wanted to run away from home and live a bohemian life in an artist loft in SoHo? So what that you're now almost 40, balding and leading a soul-crushing cubicle life in suburban Minnesota? Rent from Charlotte and relive that fantasy!

    Seriously, this place is awesome. Forget hotels.
