About this listing
Our spacious light-filled 1 BR is in the heart of the action in Alphabet City. Close to more restaurants, bars, cafes, markets and shops than you can imagine, our lovely apartment will comfortably sleep 3 and you'll be sure to have a great time!
I live with my boyfriend in a spacious, one-bedroom apt in the East Village. We have a charming, full kitchen (so rare in NYC!) with blue cabinets, brick wall, and a big window, a large bedroom with a double bed, a comfy living room with two big couches and a flat screen, and large windows in every room. (A third guest can sleep on the couch, it's wide and long, or on a queen size aero bed.)
The apartment is a third floor walkup in an amazing neighborhood (we rarely go anywhere we can't walk!) There are great restaurants, bars, cafes, and shopping right in the neighborhood—literally everything you could want.
If you'd like to explore the city, we're less than 5 minutes from the L train (two stops from Union Square and one stop from Williamsburg, BK), and a ten minute walk from Union Square. The Lower East Side is 15 minutes away, and you can get to Soho in 20 minutes by foot.
The apartment is very spacious, and comfortable. Unlike a lot of NYC apartments, we actually like to spend time here and love to cook and have people over. I think you'll love it too! :)
No smoking, pick up after yourselves, and have fun!
Laura was an excellent host and very helpful throughout our stay. The apartment was very comfortable and well located. Would definitely recommend!
Laura did a fantastic job of providing a clean place to stay. The apartment is very spacious, and she even made room in her closet for me. The location was ideal, with a lot of great restaurants and bars nearby, and Tompkins Square Park a block away. I highly recommend this place if you want to stay in this part of the city.
We had a great time staying at Laura'a place in East Village! The space was exactly as pictured and very clean. She was also very accommodating, providing an air mattress when we changed our reservation to 3 people at the last minute. The location was awesome, only a couple minutes to the nearest subway, with a few other stops being about a 10 minute walk away. The neighbourhood was very nice with lots of bars and good food just a short walk from the apartment. Overall great stay, highly recommended!
Beautiful apartment and readily close to all good places to eat AND explore. Thanks for making a comprehensive list of places to check out! Great communication with Laura and will highly recommend to future guests and visits :)
What a gorgeous space and great location! Clean, comfortable and warm (we visited during one of NY's coldest winters). Located in the east village, the neighborhood was teeming with life. Great restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance. Laura's description was pretty much on point. Some last minute issues came up and Laura and co. were very communicative and accommodating. She had compiled a very thoughtful list of recommended restaurants/bars to visit that we found to be extremely helpful. Overall a fantastic experience!!! A great first trip to NYC. I highly recommend staying here.
Laura was a very kind and responsive host- always replying quickly and helpful to every question.
The apartment was nicely located in East Village, a very hip neighborhood with lots of restaurants, bars etc. In good walking distance to several spots and also easy to use the subway nearby.
The apartment had a very good size for two people and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The bathroom was quite small, but okay. However, we were not totally satisfied with the cleanliness of the flat. Also it is not possible to regulate the heating- it got so hot that we had to leave the windows open day and night, which was then quite noisy to sleep.
But overall we can still recommend Laura's place!
