The Space

In Brief: TWO DOUBLE BEDS IN ONE ROOM, or ONE DOUBLE BED and a FUTON SOFA!! - this rate is sweet!

One person or two people same rate. Good for couples or two individual people. Huge room. Two large windows, closet, iron and ironing board in room, TV, two large mirrors, wooden floorboards, clean. Lovely room. Use of hairdryer in bathroom. No cleaning fees. ELEVATOR building - great when you've lots of shopping or luggage!

You're right by the F train (one block away at 2nd Ave station - at 1st Ave) and in the heart of lower Manhattan at Lower East Side/East Village/Soho.

This is a two bedroom apartment; bedrooms are *30 feet apart* - lots of privacy. The room has a double bed and a futon, will have one or two individual people OR a couple (this rate is for two people only; more than two people pay extra).

Price is the same for one or two people per night and is $155 per night. More than 2 people is $50 per person per night extra. Children 10 and under are free. (Please book accordingly with the correct number of people when you make your inquiry. Thanks!) This is a sweet deal for amenities, location, size, price and cleanliness. No other extra fees. There is a min 7 nights preferred, thank you. Includes all bills, cleaning after you leave, clean linens and towels. Your own keys.

There is intercom for the front door, a full bath and shower, a dining kitchen with a large double American fridge, very quiet and decent flat-mate, free bills, and a sweet, chilled and clean Persian cat.

This is the BEST location in New York, bar none. If you don't know Manhattan, don't believe the hype; mid-town is the worst. East Village/Lower East Side is the BEST location for bars, free live music, funky boutiques, cheap but amazing restaurants. West Village is pricey; East Village/LES is what the West Village used to be before it got too expensive, making the East Village/LES the bohemian arty hang-out in the city.

This apartment is exactly in the middle of everything; where the East Village meets the Lower East Side at Orchard and Houston streets and 5 blocks from Soho.

One block from the F and M trains (Lower East Side/2nd Ave - at the 1st Ave exit), this apartment is in the center of everything. Brilliant nightlife, live music (Living Room, Rockwood Music Hall, The National Underground all 2 mins walk or less), bars (too many to name - but the Sixth Ward downstairs has the largest beer garden for 15 blocks and has a happy hour Mon - Wed ALL NIGHT drinks for $3 - til 4am!!), inexpensive but fantastic restaurants (one Himalayan, one Mexican, one Thai, two French all within 1 min walk), great walks (5 long blocks from the East River) and right on top of the subway (F train runs right up the center of Manhattan); this location doesn't get any better.
VERY SAFE at night. Yet, even though you're in the center of everything, the room is very quiet because you've got double-glazing and you're 5 floors up. Don't worry, there's an elevator (unusual for round here).

The Room:
Bright (two large double-glazed windows - up 5 floors, lots of light), a double-sized bed, a separate double-sized futon, TV, desk and chair, side table, A/C and adjustable GF heating, built-in closet. Clean linens and towels included. Iron and ironing board in the room. Use of hairdryer in the bathroom.

Me: I let out my spare room year round, and I've sublet my own room each time I go away (maybe 3 times a year) and everyone who's stayed here has enjoyed the place. This will be the same with you I'm sure. I'm pretty flexible and keen to make your stay here as happy as possible, so any requests, just ask. I can supply references from previous guests on request. More info about me is here: suzanne (website hidden) I rely on references and recommendations, so any comments on my page here very welcome after you depart.

If you're not in the country, I'm happy to have a friend of yours or whomever, to come by and take a look. First come, first served.

If this all sounds good to you, get in touch.

  • Suzanne was a great host. She was not there while we stayed in her apartment, but she helped us every time when it was needed. It started with the guide to arrive from the airport to her apartment. The location is perfect. She gave some great advises about the neighborhood that made our first stay in NYC unforgettable. Thank you!

    Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed your stay! Come again. :)

  • Just a wonderful host! It turned out that Suzanne was away most of the time we were there, so it turned into a private apartment for us. She has a full list of neighborhood amenities, and there are even more than she listed.

  • Maja was the perfect host. Picked me up from the ferry, recommended the wonderful Lola restaurant ( worth a special trip to Vis). And the apartment was cute and comfortable and had the best views of the water and yachts as well. Lovely.

  • Thank you for being a fantastic host Susanne.
    The communication from the start was excellent...replies were prompt and gave all the information needed.
    As a first time airbnb user I would recommend staying with Susanne. I felt at home, at ease and having a place to call home was fabulous. Susanne gave us some great advice re the local areas to eat drink and be merry....
    The location is superb within walking distance to many areas...soho, china town and little Italy to name a few.
    It's a safe and lively place to stay and I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to NYC. Thank you Susanne...see you in a couple of weeks

  • First time using AirBnB. Suzanne was really accommodating. We stayed for 3 nights in the room with a bed and a futon. It had its own heater & a/c unit. The apartment is in a great location. Very relaxed, casual, safe and clean. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place located in the heart of the lower east side.

  • We've been four days in Suzanne's apartment. Great host, the location is in the heart of East Village you can go to a tons of bars and restaurants in a few minutes walking. You'll sleep in a warm an comfortable room. Suzanne was very helpful when we arrived in letting us know what we needed to get us started on our holiday in the city.
    First time with Airbnb, great experience!!!

  • What a fabulous woman and host! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Suzanne. Not only is her apt in the absolute middle of all things Lower East Side, Suzanne is a beautiful soul and wonderful company. And on top of all that is her lilting Irish accent and wit for some extra fun in the stay. We're coming back to NYC and will be staying with Suzanne!

I've been letting out my spare room (and my own room when I'm away) for a couple of years now and it's always been very successful for both parties. This is a great apartment and you will love it. I'm veggie, don't smoke, have a very sweet cat and care deeply that you will enjoy your stay here. If you're happy, I'm (website hidden); my family is in the bed and breakfast business back in Ireland; I know how to present a lovely, clean room and I rely on this income to support my business, so having good feedback is important to me. After staying here, please feel free to leave comments on my airbnb page for other future guests! :)
