Get cozy in this lovely apartment located right in the center of the East Village - the most fun neighborhood in NYC. The bedroom has a comfy queen bed, accommodating up to 2 people. There is also a bathroom with tub and shower, heat, full kitchen and common area.
** NOTE: This listing is for a single bedroom in this 2-bedroom apartment. If you would prefer to rent the entire apartment, please let me know or feel free to check my other listings.
Welcome to trendy, artistic East Village - the true heartbeat of the city. In the East Village you're close to fashionable Soho, celebrity sightings in Tribeca, the nightlife of the Lower East Side, and great cheap eats in Chinatown. You are also a quick subway ride from the Meatpacking District and Times Square, but without the noise and high prices.
The apartment is close to the subway: the J/M/Z (Delancey station) and the F (2nd Ave station) are each a 5 minute walk. The 6 (Bleecker station) is a 10 minute walk, and Union Square, a major transportation hub, is a 15 minute walk.
The East Village is the center of NYC nightlife, featuring hundreds of bars and restaurants from cheap eats to more chic and upscale. There are several all-night delis and a supermarket right around the corner from the apartment. During the day, visit Tompkins Square Park, enjoy lunch at a sidewalk cafe, and shop at the many small artistic stores in the neighborhood.
The entire apartment is around 600 sq. feet (60m2), which is a very good size for the area. There is a large living room, kitchen and a bathroom with bathtub and shower. The apartment is already fully furnished, so it's ideal for people staying short-term or who have just moved into the city. And it's only 2 floors up, so no huge stairway to climb.
All the tourist areas such as Chinatown, Soho, Brooklyn Bridge, and the Empire State Building, plus many others are all within walking distance.
Great location, super comfortable bed! Dimitri is a lovely man and was a very attentive host, he brought me a blowdryer and spent half the day making sure the internet worked on my computer (he even went and bought a signal booster to make it stronger). Highly recommended!
The view is superb.The local area outside is sketchy but I had no problems. The doormen to the building were nice guys. I never did see Bastien or Jazzwell over the 3 days I spent there. Would like to have had curtains as other tenants are able to look right inside through the window. A working light bulb in the lamp would have helped during the evening. Room was dirty. Looked like the carpet hadn't been vacumed in a month. Only 2 block walk to 125th street metro station which is a express train too, nice. Bed was comfy with nice comforter and clean sheets.
Awesome location and room. Safe neighborhood, even late at night. Everyone was very pleasant and accomodating. I had no towel and host rushed to local store to purchase one. AWESOME! This is an excellent value.
Bastien has become a "host friend" as he has taken some of my guests recently. Bastien is a great guy, always available to work with me and accommodate even very last-minute and one-night reservations which have saved me:)! thanks Bastien and looking forward to doing more business with you. All my guests really liked his place!
Bastien place is pretty nice, It is super clean and the room and bed are very comfy. Loved the view from the terrace and windows. Bestian was very hospitable and friendly.
Just a small note about the neighborhood, The location is in harlem so if you are from outside NYC it looks very sketchy on first look but is safe as I learnt during my stay there.
bastien was amazing! he made us feel really welcome and was extremely personable! he was quick to answer any questions we had about the city and checked with us to make sure everything was kosher......also, the view was just amazing...you could see everything! i wwill definitly be staying with him again on my next trip!!!! ttfn see you soon bastiien!!!!!! :)
My husband and I just spent five nights at Bastien's place and truly enjoyed ourselves. We couldn't have been luckier in the location: a 15-minute bus straight from LGA to 125th and Lexington; a 10-minute express subway ride to Times Square; a 10-minute stroll to Central Park reservoir and trails. Oh, and the view! It was better than a postcard. The bed was super comfortable, the rest of the apartment was roomy and kept tidy. The roommates weren't really around much, but when they were, gave great advice about restaurants and things to do. Although we didn't get to see Bastien much, he made every attempt to get together and ensure that we had something to do. In fact, he proved himself hospitable right away by leaving work to meet us at the bus stop and take us to his place. Very pleasant experience overall. I'd definitely recommend Bastien's place!
Bastien probably has the best view in Manhattan. Looking down from the upper, upper east side into downtown at night is really a great view. His room mates are all pleasant and gave great tips on where to go. Very much recommended.
