East Village Studio Superb Location

Apartment - Entire home/apt · E 7th St, New York, NY 10009, United States

This Studio is on one of the NYC's best streets! Steps from amazing shopping, dining and nightlife!

The Space

This is a spacious studio in the heart of the East Village. Steps to Tompkins Square Park. There are countless restaurants, cafes, bars and nightlife surrounding the apartment. It is located on the 3rd floor of a 6 story walk-up building on a quiet and beautiful street with tons of great shops and dining. Literally one of the best low-key blocks in lower Manhattan.

Transportation: 5 Minute walk to 14th street L strain at 1st avenue. 5 Minute walk to Astor place 6 train. 12 minute walk to Union Square L456NQR trains to anywhere in the city. 20 minutes walk/train to Grand Central or Times Square.

Our favorite part about the east village is that you can walk to all the best neighborhoods of lower Manhattan. Lower East Side, Chinatown, Soho, Nolita, Little Italy and Gramercy.

The apartment is furnished with an extra comfy queen size bed and a Futon sofa that folds down into a bed with room for 2 in each! Note: The apartment is definitely best for 1 or 2 but can certainly sleep 3 or 4, although longer stays may get cramped. There is a spacious bathroom and full kitchen with dishwasher. This is by no means a large apartment but certainly large for an NYC studio!

The apartment is very very clean with all new furniture/mattress and linens! Plenty of fresh towels and linens provided as well.

Anyways, ask me anything! I love to help with travel and fun city tips!

Many people ask about the price with fees and extra costs etc along with how to make payment etc. When you enter the dates you would like to stay into the site along with the number of people, it will return the total cost (including the cleaning fee). There are no taxes or extra fees on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price. The security deposit will be returned to you 48 hours after you check out as long as you leave the place in decent condition. So far we have never had to keep any of the deposits.

All the payments are safely made with credit card to AirBnB when booking. They hold the money until the day after you check in and will then transfer it to us. This ensures that the apartment is there when you arrive and prevents fraud etc. Thanks!

  • Great place, clean and spacious in a great location! Perfect for a long week-end!

  • We wanted clean, comfortable accommodations in lower Manhattan and this studio fit the bill. Melissa arranged for us to pick up the keys at a corner grocery so we had no problems on check-in. All of our communications with Melissa from booking through departure were prompt, cordial, and satisfactory.

    We would recommend this studio to friends and family visiting the area and we would certainly stay there again.

  • East Village is a great place to stay, loads of restaurants and cafes. The apartment was ok, lots of stairs to walk up at the end of the day (with baby and stroller), clean, fine for a couple with toddler. Some negatives- oven handle was broken which of course is all our baby wanted to play with, a bit dangerous, some bathroom issues like sometimes no hot water and sink which we had to fiddle with to make water drain away. Also no soap/shampoo as promised so I had to go out and buy some, no problem just a bit annoying. But we had a great stay in New York.

  • We had a superbly comfortable week-long stay at this studio. The location in the heart of East Village was perfect for us, we greatly enjoyed the chill atmosphere of the neighborhood. The apartment is also conveniently located for visiting both Brooklyn and Manhattan. Communication with the owners was swift and they were very flexible with the check-in and check-out processes. I highly recommend this place!

  • We had a wonderful stay in Melissa's apartment! The location is fabulous with lots of cute bars and restaurants close by, and there are many metro stations within a 5-10 minute walk. There were two of us in the apartment and it was the perfect size for us and all of our luggage. Melissa was very accommodating and helpful during our entire stay. We would definitely stay here again!

    February 2014
  • This is my second stay in this lovely apartment. Mel and Sam are the best hosts. The apt was clean and warm (essential this visit with all the cold weather!) and the location in the east village is close to everything you would want to do! i love it here!

  • My favorite airbnb apartment so far! Perfect location, very clean apartment, perfect size for 1-2 people. Melissa was a great host, responded quickly to any questions and was present when we needed her concerning a plumbing issue. I would always try to book that place again in the future!

  • My friends and I had the opportunity to stay at Melissa's East Village Studio while touring New York and we can say that it was an enjoyable experience. The place is just as it is described and the location is superb. We loved the easy access to the subway system to get around the city. Also the East Village area is so full of life, great places to visit,eat and enjoy a drink. Melissa was a great host, she had everything ready at check in, the place was clean and taken care off. If I'm to go back to NYC, i would definitely keep this place in mind :)

  • Melissa was a really nice host, even if we never met her, as we picked up the keys around the corner, she always helped us out, when we had questions about the booking, the room or New York itself.
    The Studio was big enough for three friends to stay, clean and perfectly located. We tried out some of the restaurants she recommended in the guide and were not disappointed.
    We had a great time in NYC and Melissa's place and would definetly consider it for our next trip to New York some day.
