Beautiful, clean, spacious, extremely BRIGHT with great views LOFT like studio in an ELEVATOR building located in a quiet TREE LINED block in THE HEART of the EAST VILLAGE.
The apartment is FULLY EQUIPPED with a QUEEN SIZED extra comfortable bed, fine linen and towels, hair-dryer, dinning table for two, extra large extremely comfortable sleeping couch, flat screen TV with full cable, WIFI.
The separate WINDOWED kitchen has everything needed for cooking, pots and pans, coffee maker, oven toaster and microwave. There is always coffee, refreshments and basics so you can cook your own breakfast.
The neighborhood is fantastic, the TRENDY and famous EAST VILLAGE with uncountable great restaurants, boutiques, thrift shops, flee markets, farmers market and much more. The TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK (Great park with playgrounds, a big dog run and many performance spaces where you can usually find something happening on the weekends. Sundays there is a farmers market w/ some good stuff) right around the corner.
EAST RIVER PARK is a couple of blocks away. This 57-acre park boasts amazing views of the East River, as well as an amphitheater, playgrounds, gardens, sports fields and courts, and walking and bike paths.
On the corner of the apartment there is 24 hour grocery and a gourmet market with countless options for everything.
There are 2 crosstown buses right on the corner that are scheduled to come literally every 5 minutes and follow the L train route. This is great for a rainy day or if you are coming from the subway with a lot of packages. The nearest subway is the L train which is about 5 minutes walk from the apartment and it is a great subway line because it connects you with any subway you might need.

Very nice fancy room. There are Shampoos, Conditioner, Hot shower, Plenty of clean towels, dryer, Elevator to bring the suitcases up to 4th floor. Few stairs at the entrance of the building and 8-10 minutes walk to the subway station were only things I thought a bit uncomfortable. but other than that, I really liked the apartment.
Loved to stay in Lenas apt. Very clean and nice inside. A bit shady outside, but we didnt mind. The bars around Tompkins square made the stay even better, no snobs, a lot of rokn roll....
Thank you Lena we had a great stay, loved the apartment, loved the area loved the dog:)
Would like to stay there again the next time we are in NYC
Lena ha sido una anfitriona maravillosa y su casa un sueño, a pesar de llegar bastante tarde a la ciudad, estuvo en todo momento disponible para nosotros, nos ayudo con direcciones y se aseguro que nuestra llegada fuera facil y segura, el apartamento no podria tener una mejor localizacion y ser mas comodo, la cama es como dormir en una nube, el mejor alojamiento de manhattan!!!
This well-located apartment is exactly as it is described and shown in the photos. It's tastefully decorated, comfortable, clean and convenient. We had a great time staying here and it was a great base for exploring New York - only a few blocks away from the subway station and in easy walking distance of many wonderful restaurants, cafes, pubs and attractions.
Communicating with Lena was always prompt and reliable and we can highly recommend her as a hostess.
The services in the apartment - the bathroom, hot water, cooking facilities, TV and WiFi - were all excellent. There is a very comfortable large double bed! There was only one thing we found a bit disappointing and that was the heating. It cannot be operated by a timer and when it is on the fan is rather noisy. We were visiting New York during a very cold period (end December/beginning January), so this was something that mattered a bit more. Other than that we cannot fault the apartment and can highly recommend it!
Beautiful loft and great location. Lena was a great hostess and very accomodating. Would definately stay again.
We had a great stay at Lena's appartment und enjoyed Manhatten very much behause of that. The Location is perfect: quiet at night and with lots of shops, cafes and other possibilities around, just one block away. Subway near by, and all points of sightseeing easy to reach. The appartment was very clean, that is very important to me, if i go on holiday and there is everything you need, for example free wifi, cooking and so on. Communication with Lena was very good, she is really nice and helpful. We had a wonderful week and i felt like a real New Yorker living there!
Lena's apartment is great (cozy and clean) and the location is perfect to visit Manhattan. Lena is also very prompt with replying to any questions and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay !
Great apartment in a fantastic location. Near to lots of cool restairants and speakeasy bars. Easy walk to subway. Lena was extremely prompt with replying to any queries or needs and the place was very homely and comfortable. Great having brochures and suggestions for things to do. Only small issue was waiting for tthe hot water to heat up each time but that must just be an issue for the block of apartments and lena made it very clear how to work it. Thanks for a great stay!
Lena's place is gorgeous and cozy, not to mention in a prime location near many cafes, restaurants, and bars. I was literally snapping photos of her place to get interior decorating ideas for my own home. She was an exceptionally responsive and courteous host. I would stay at Lena's flat again in a heartbeat!
