I stayed with my daughter and son. As other guests have commented, the location is excellent for completely exploring New York. My children had no trouble getting to every venue for concerts and basketball. I enjoyed the vast range of restaurants and that the Soho shops have a comprehensive selection and are close to the apartment. Ken was a great help by providing us with all the information we could possibly need.
Ken's place was great. It was convenient to everything in the city - a block from 2 different subway stops, a short walk to the highline, a short walk to Bleeker st and Soho.The apartment itself was great. Ken and his friend Hector were very helpful. We had trouble with a key to the block - something that afflicts all residents there - but with some helpful instructions from Ken and Hector we were able to sort it out very quickly. All in all a great time!
Ken's apartment is in a fantastic location for exploring manhattan. Its just a short stroll to amazing cafes, bars, restaurants and closeby to the subway AND the westside hwy / hudson river. His flat was clean, the bed was super comfy and there were heaps of towels and toilet paper (always a plus) provided for us! Its on the 5th floor of a pretty steep walk up building but stairs arent so bad when you take into consideration the eating and drinking done in NYC! Thank you Ken!
Ken was so helpful leading up to our stay in his apartment. He gave us great information about the area, the subway stations close by and even sent a list of restaurants and pubs to check out in the area! Ken was very easy to communicate with prior to our arrival. We had arranged for Kens friend Hector to meet us upon our arrival. I had problems with my cell phone when I got into NY and I wasnt able to receive messages, so was unsure if Hector had received mine about our arrival into JFK; we found Hector waiting at the flat for us (after our flight was delayed by 2 hours) to hand over the keys. Hector even kindly carried up one of our suitcases too!
The flat is in one of the best parts of Manhattan. Close to everything and the red line (subway) only a couple of blocks away, you couldnt ask for a better spot. The flat was very tidy and clean and had everything we needed for our stay (including towels). Its in a safe location and walking distance to a lot of the hot spots of Manhattan such as Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District. Ive been to NY a number of times, and if I lived there it would be around the area that Kens apartment is in.
We stayed in the summertime, so were grateful for the air conditioning units in both the bedrooms. Although the apartment itself wasnt that hot considering the heat outside.
I would definitely recommend Kens apartment if you are wanting a great location, clean apartment and great host. The next time Im back in NY Ill be asking Ken if I can stay again!
Ken`s place was very nice and clean. Great location and Ken was a really good host! would go back any time:)
This apartment is in the perfect location to get to all places downtown quickly. We were very comfortable there and are looking forward to going back and staying here again.
Ken is the perfect host and made our stay very special.
This is a perfect home away from home.
It was a lovely place to stay, felt like we were living in NY ofcourse and its location is so handy, we were so close to all the stores.
Subway stations were very close too. We highly recommend it.
Ken is a great host. Apartment is perfect, in a great location! Very clean and quiet. Just few steps from the subway, close to many restaurants and bars. Hope we come to NYC soon again. Thank you Ken!
très bon rapport qualité/prix pour un appartement incroyablement bien placé. on a adoré le fait d'avoir 2 chambres et apprécié le nespresso du matin( seul vrai bon café à NYC). Ken est très organisé, efficace dans ses réponses, consciencieux et ultra prévenant. Pas présent en ville lors de notre arrivé il avait tout planifié pour que l'un de ses amis nous accueille. ce dernier nous a aidé pour monter nos bagages et a été d'une grande ponctualité et d'une très grande disponibilité. UN GRAND MERCI à eux 2.
Ken was great in communicating with us and arranged for his friend Hector to meet us. The apartment was just as pictured - very stylish, snug but perfect for 2 people in Manhattan. Ken left us water and other helpful bits and bobs as well as good local information of restaurants and bars.
The apartment is on the 5th floor but this wasn't an issue for us as Hector helped with our bags. Location is very good in a cool area and close to metro lines. There is some street noise from the bedroom so if you are a light sleeper ear plugs might handy.
