  • All around a great stay! The accommodations were exactly as described and the communication with Sascha in setting everything up, answering questions and providing feedback couldn't have been better. I only hope that my family and I were as good a guests as he was a host.

    To be honest, I was a little hesitant trying the whole AirBnB thing out for the first time especially having my family (wife, 2-year old, mother and father) in tow, but things worked out perfectly and hopefully Sascha's place will be available in the future should I decide to return to NY.

    Sascha, thanks again for a great stay!

  • This is a clean, nice apartment in a terrific location. Really close to one of the best neighborhoods in New York, and tons of amazing bars, restaurants and more within just a few blocks. The apartment itself is very comfortable and we had a great stay. Check-in was easy and everything went very smoothly.

  • We had a fantastic time at Sachas apt. It looks as good as the picture. I would recomend it to everyone

  • Sascha (Alexander) was a great host. Unfortunately, we were not able to meet him personally, but he was very easy to get in contact with and responded to questions immediately. He arranged everything for us prior to arrival and gave us additional info about the neighborhood. The apartment was exactly as described and clean. I would definitely stay at his apartment again.

  • Sascha's apartment is in a great location in the east village, surrounded by buzzing cafés, bars and independent shops. The atmosphere was electric, especially on weekend evnings. Tompkins Square park was within metres of the apartment which was great if, like us, you are travelling with kids. Our son's favourite thing about the week was the "wobbly bridge" in the park!

    The apartment was spotlessly clean and exactly as it looks in the photos. As others have said, it gets more light than you would imagine. One thing we would have liked was heavier blinds to block out the streetlights at night. We also found it quite tight for five people but that was our own fault as the apartment is advertised for four. In the end, our son loved sleeping on the comfy airbed beside our bed. There was always plenty of hot water and the fact that there was a reception and doorman in the building made us feel that it was very secure. Also, there were a few beers in the fridge along with butter and some other essentials when we got there which helped us to settle in quickly.

    With a toddler and my parents (in their late 60s) we found that the apartment was a little far from the closest subway. That said, we took a walk over to Washington Square park and Greenwich Village one morning and found it to be closer than we expected.

    We didn't meet Sascha as he was away while we were in New York but he was very responsive to emails and very helpful with any queries we had. It was great to have the use of the iMac also as it meant it was very easy to contact Sascha while we were there.

    Overall I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in a cool location in New York. We would certainly be happy to stay there again on our next visit to NYC.

  • The apartment is nice, clean and have everything needed. Two bedrooms, one bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. It fit well 4 people.
    We were in five and sometime we felt a bit tight.
    The iMac and the big TV are added values ;-)
    The neighbour is quite and safe. Plenty of restaurant and pubs.
    The tube is a bit far (10 min walk).
    Nice view from the rooftop.
    Sasha is very kind and always available in case of need.

  • Sascha was an amazing host that made our stay very convenient. Very responsive.

  • We had a great time staying Sascha's apartment. We stayed with our two teenage sons so it was a little bit tight, but that was more than made up for by the area which was buzzing. The place was pretty well equipped and stylish and above all felt very safe. I would be happy to recommend this place for anyone spending a few days in New York.

  • I highly recommend Sascha's apartment in the East Village. It is very comfortable for 4 people with a nice living room and large bathroom. There is plenty of closet space and all the amenities one needs for a short vacation or extended trip. The home is just as pictured in the photographs, if not nicer. We loved the neighborhood and found it easy to hail a cab right out the front door. The green line is a 10-minute walk but the cross-town L is just up the street if you prefer public transportation. Sascha was easy to reach and gave us a long list of great restaurants in the neighborhood. I highly recommend staying here!

  • This is the second time staying at Sascha's place. This time with 3 people and the place was again perfect. Great communication before and during the stay once again, with nothing bad to say this is again a place I would come back to on my next visit.
