The Space

Perfect Studio Apartment in the heart of Chelsea, very convenient to Subway stations on 14th Street and 18th Street. The place is fully furnished - there is a queen sized bed and a sofa as well as a dining table, for now. I'm a professional interior designer, so you can rest assured that it's more than just a mattress on a floor!

There is high speed wireless internet available but no cable TV. You're probably not visiting NYC to watch TV, though!

No smoking....EVER!

I live here most of the time but travel a lot for work. My schedule changes a lot so it's always best to contact me about availability rather than relying on the calendar.

If you haven't yet been to NYC, Chelsea is about as central as you can get without being in (less desirable) tourist-ridden midtown!

I'm a very up-front and honest person and expect the same of any guests. Send questions my way before booking and I'll do my best to get back to you quickly!

P.S. - Washer and Dryer are in the building, but in the basement and will need old fashioned quarters to operate :-)

  • Ben is a great host and the apartment is very nicely decorated and very clean. The location is also terrific. One small caveat is that as this is clearly Ben's full-time home, there isn't a great deal of unoccupied storage space (this is NY after all, where space is hard to find!), so finding a place to put your "stuff" can be a bit challenging. I made it work and had a terrific time, but this might be an issue for others.

  • We had a very nice stay at Ben's place. It totally answered what we excepted and was very clean. The neighborhood is also very great. We were able to do a lot of things by foot. Thank you !

  • Very nice and skillfully decorated studio flat in a great location - many good restaurants and bars are within walking distance. Ben has been a perfect and generous host and everything was impeccably organised.

  • The studio was very cozy, furnished (appliances available) and well decorated. Excellent location, with elevator, safe place and neighborhood, warm room and hot water on the shower even during winter . A lot of good restaurants, food markets and shops around. Good options of subway stations and short walk to Madison Square Garden and beyond.
    On the street is easy to find a place to park the car (if needed).
    There you will find a clean and silent place with good Wi-Fi connection.
    The host was a great guy and everything was exactly as he informed.

  • The real deal in NYC! Very nice position in great neighbor, close to nice restaurants, shopping, subway and night life, but not crowded and not noisy...Apartment was clean and comfortable and Ben is a great host. I recommend it and I hope to come again really soon!

  • We had a great time in Ben's studio. It was in a perfect location, and as you can see in the pictures, is spacious and beautifully furnished.

  • Great apartment in a great neighborhood.
    Première expérience avec Airbnb, on était un peu stressé de pas pouvoir récupérer les clés car notre avion avait une tonne de retard et qu'on arrivait à 23 h , que Ben n'était pas là ... mais heureusement un de ses amis nous a laissé les clés à la réception d'un hôtel à coté et tout à bien débuté. L'appartement est beau, très propre (il sent bon même), pas très grand mais ça suffit pour 2 et enfin le lit est super confortable . Le quartier est parfait , au milieu de plein de bars et restos et à 5 mn du métro. En bref allez y

  • Ben's place is a great place to stay! Easy access to the subway and more restaurants and bars in a 2 block radius than you can count. Also you have a 2 gyms in a half block or less and a yoga studio across the street. His home is charming and looks even better than the pictures. The bed is VERY comfy. I would recommend this location and apartment to anyone. Ben is also extremely easy to communicate with.

I travel tons for work and love it - but why let my great studio in NYC lay dormant while I'm gone?
