* The LES LOFT is not a bed and breakfast, it's a private home and work space.
* There's absolutely no smoking anywhere inside the loft.
* No parties are allowed.
* We do have a kitchen which is available for our guests, but we discourage however cooking big meals with offensive odors and grease. Be mindful it's a shared space between other guests and it's an open kitchen to our art gallery and studio. We recommend the use of the kitchen for a simple and nice breakfast and just small bites.
* The guests are responsible to wash and put away their own dishes.
* We do not offer Laundry Service, but there's laundromats two blocks away.
* We do try to arrange the easiest check in, as we are not a hotel, we do not have someone at the loft 24 hours responsible for the welcoming. We have a team available with the mission to be at the loft at the time scheduled. We do expect that guests understand and smoothly help us on this, having some patience and freedom to stop for a coffee just around the loft (Dudley's for example, at Orchard and Broome) if there's need to wait a little bit. We will do our part as well, being available for guests that might be late than expected.
* Check out from the rooms are always by 11am. Guests are welcome to leave their luggages at the common area and keep their keys until the time they need to leave to the airport.
Le loft est vraiment génial et grand. La purple room a une super vue mais Elle est vraiment bruyante surtout avec les travaux en ce moment...
Raquel et son mari sont adorables, prêts à rendre service, ils sont extrêmement détendus. Ils ont même proposé à mon mari artiste peintre de faire une fresque dans la chambre, et c'est ce qu'il a fait ! leur petit garçon est trop mignon.
Le quartier est top, plein de galeries et les accès au Metro sont pratiques.
The LES Loft is very clean and convenient, and has the feel of a hostel. It's a great location - short walk from Chinatown and from the Lower East Side. And the F train's just a short walk away. We enjoyed staying in the Purple Room for 2 nights. Loved the view from our window and loved falling asleep to the sounds of the city!
Raquel & her husband were great. Warm, friendly and helpful. Would certainly stay there again.
Sin duda uno de los mejores airbnb en los que he estado! Limpieza, orden, tranquilidad... La descripción del anuncio y todos sus comentarios describen perfectamente como es.
La ubicación brutal, al lado del metro, a dos pasos del Soho y a un paso de ChinaTown.
Muchas gracias Raquel!
I have stayed at Raquel's studio in LES several times now and only have positive things to say. The studio space is extremely spacious as are the rooms which are extremely clean, well furnished and lovingly themed. I love the location: so close to the subway, the buzzing hub of LES, not to mention Little Italy and Chinatown. In my opinion LES is the most exciting part of Manhattan right now: the concentration of bars, restaurants, shops and galleries is unmatched and increasing every day.
Raquel is a perfect host and has a great team of people supporting to her. She has always been incredibly flexible, helpful and understanding if and when circumstances have changed.
I always stay here when I'm in NYC. The only time I go anywhere else is when she's fully booked!
In a word: wow. The loft is not only stylish and full of character (classic New York wood floors, massive windows that do a wonderful job capturing both sunlight and the bustle of Chinatown/Lower East Side) but has a vibe that feels like home (and a very clean one at that): my husband and I found ourselves missing it after we were back in Bombay. The host is very attentive and makes sure the bathrooms and kitchen are well-stocked with great body wash (we liked it so much we bought some to take back!) soap, lotion, detergent; and the manager Ramon and the cleaning lady are also very responsive. The loft is also very well connected, and is a mere two or three blocks from the B/D subway lines. We'll definitely try to stay her again on return trips.
We arrived later then expected and this was no problem. Ofer was there to let us in and give us the tour of the studio, which was nice and open. Gave us some great suggestions for restaurants. We had a great stay and were convenient to shopping, restaurants and parking. I forgot my Ipad/phone charger and they had one available to use. First time user for this service and very pleased with everything! Thanks, to Raquel and Ofer for being so accommodating!
