Real estate agent, originally from Colombia but a true New Yorker. I enjoy what this great city has to offer and because of the nature of my job, I certainly know how to offer a 5 stars service for a 2 stars price.

Notre logeuse a été très correcte et est intervenue rapidement lorsque nous le lui avons demandé pour résoudre l'un ou l'autre problème.
Le studio ne manque pas de charme et est conforme à sa description, mais il serait bien d'en donner la superficie (très petite). Il n'est pas très propre, mais cela semble la norme à New York. Nous avons en revanche apprécié les attentions de notre logeuse, par exemple la disposition de cosmétiques et d'articles de toilette ou la fourniture de produits alimentaires de base (huile, sucre, thé, etc..) qui est appréciable.
L'immeuble est vétuste et enlaidi par un échafaudage et de nombreuses poubelles. Il est particulièrement mal isolé et le bruit des voisins ou de la rue est gˆenant.
Le quartier, en voie de gentryfication, est sympathique et les habitants sont accueillants. Il y a de bons restaurants. Les rats ne sont gˆenants que les soirs de ramassage des poubelles.
Dans l'ensemble, nous avons apprécié notre séjour et en garderons un bon souvenir.
Staying at Lena's was fantastic. The apartment was just as the pictures portrayed it. It was clean and cozy. Since it was summer, the AC was amazing. Even though the apartment is above a busy street, the AC has a nice hum and the bedroom is far enough from the window to where the noise on a Saturday night is not bothersome. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook, with a great added cabinet set to help add some extra counter space. The neighborhood had everything I needed and more with a grocer story just downstairs, another one around the corner and tons of places to eat at, bars, nail salons, etc. Even though there's no laundry in the building, there are a few laundromats (both with drop-off and self-service) with a few blocks of the apartment. The proximity to the subway was perfect having a L train subway stop only one block from the apartment from which I could transfer to get to anywhere in NYC. Pick-up and drop-off of keys was quick and easy. Lena was always available via text to answer any questions I had. I will definitely be looking to stay here again next time I need a place in NYC.
Lena has always been very reactive to any demand. The apartment is equipped with everything you could need and the bed is really comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly and popular. Thanks Lena!
Great apartment! Exactly like on the pictures. Lena is a wonderful host and helped us with all our questions always very fast. The logistics are very easy, the L line subway is just 5 minutes away. Cool and good delis, supermarkets bars and restaurants around the corner. Easy and fast communication!! Absolute recommendation!! :))
Great location, easy, clean and fun! Lena was responsive and accommodating. We were able to drop off our bags before check-in, which was very helpful. The apartment is cozy but probably spacious for NYC. Using plush towels and sleeping on soft sheets was great after a day of non-stop walking, as was using Wifi and the television. Tompkins Square Park is within a couple blocks and the subway is a short walk away. There are a deli and a grocery store at the end of the (website hidden). Mark's place is fun and a short walk away. Check out the Georgian restaurant on E 5th St and Avenue B- it was delicious! Make sure you have cash if you want to eat spontaneously, there were quite a few cash only places. It was a great first Airbnb.
La experiencia en casa de Lena ha sido muy buena, el barrio es fantástico ya que tiene todo lo que uno espera ver en el East Village, cafés con encanto, pequeñas tiendas singulares y si lo deseas también ambiente nocturno.
El único inconveniente es que durante la noche es un poco ruidoso ya que está cerca de una calle muy concurrida, pero al fin y al cabo esto es NY.
Lena ha sido un encanto en todo momento y nos ha hecho la estancia muy fácil.
Recomiendo este apartamento.
The apartment was great and Lena was very helpful and accommodating. It was great to have our own space. It was about a 5-7 minute walk from the subway and at first we found it a bit out of the way, but honestly after the first day we realized how nice it was to get out of the hustle bustle of Times Square. We found some great restaurants on 9th and other nearby streets.
Apartment was very clean and had all we needed! Exactly as advertised.
We were surprised at how quiet the apartment was, great place to unwind after a long day of walking around Manhattan.
I had a wonderful experience with Lena and her apartment. The apartment was clean and well taken care of. I thought the neighborhood felt safe. She was a great host. She met us at the apartment when our flight came in early. She made arrangements to hold our bags until our flights left on check out day. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely rent from her again!
We had such a good experience at Lena's place! She was very accommodating! We were greeted by her beautiful little frenchies, which just confirmed we had chosen the right place as we are frenchie owners as well!! The place was in a great location, with tons of bars and restaurants and very close to a fantastic Whole Foods. Thank you Lena for your hospitality! We will definitely be booking again.
Apartment was exactly as expected from the description on site. It proved to be actually larger than I expected. Check in / Check out were easy, as was communicating with Lena. During my stay the mattress was replaced with a new extra comfy model which I'm sure future guests will enjoy. You are aware of noise from adjacent apartments in the building so if light sleeper get some ear plugs however if you're seeking absolute peace and quiet NYC might not be for you.
Staying in the East Village gives a different spin on a New York holiday and I really enjoyed it. Never stuck for something to do.
Lina was a great guest! Hope she comes back soon!
Great guest excellent communication. I will host again.
Lena and her boyfriend are both lovely people whom I had the pleasure of hosting. They both were very easy to please and I did not have enough time to hang with them but I would love to have them back anytime! XO!!
Thanks to you Dino for allowing us to stay in your lovely house in San Juan, we can't wait to be back :)
Lina 'z is simply the best !!!!!!!!!!
I met Lina several years ago. She is fun and charming. Her place in the East Village is really nice and very well located. I highly recommend her place for anyone who wants to visit New York and to stay in the East Village!
Lina is absolutely AMAZING! I threw my birthday party at her apartment and it was unforgettable! Her apartment is BEAUTIFUL! The rooftop has a perfect view of the sunset and the balcony off the bedroom is priceless. This apartment is cozy and elegant not to mention its only a block away from Tompkins Square park. If your looking for an apartment that makes you feel at home with the convenience of having the coolest neighborhood in
Manhattan right outside your doorstep, this apartment is perfect. ENJOY!
I have known Lina for years and I have a lot of respect for her professionalism and her knowledge of the real estate industry. Now her beautiful space is open for rent. I highly recommend her place for anyone who wants to visit New York and to stay in the East Village.
