I am originally from Singapore, am a photographer, and interested in fashion, design, culinary arts. I share the apartment with my partner, Jens who is from Denmark, hence the good taste.

Beautiful space in Chinatown, close to Lower East Side and East Village and super close to the subway (so easy to get to the city!). The actual street level of this place is definitely Chinatown so if you're wanting to stay in the very heart of it all and step out into trendy cafes this is not the place. But it's central to everything and quiet for a good sleep. The space is huge too, which is nice but you really don't spend any time in the apartment except for sleep when you visit NYC! The hosts are really nice and helpful and leave you to do your own thing.
Wir waren für drei Nächte in New York. Jens hat uns herzlich empfangen, das Loft ist wie beschrieben, grosszügig, wunderschön, mit viel Geschmack eingerichtet. Die "gemeinsame Küche" haben wir gar nicht benutzt. Das Bad ist zweckmässig, gross und schön. Wir waren sehr glücklich in der Loft. Gelegen ist das Loft zwischen little Italy und Chinatown, super spannende Umgebung, viel Leben, viel Kultur, viele Gerüche. In der Loft gibt es keinen Fernseher, dafür eine coole kleine Soundanlage. Einzig gestört hat uns der Lärm einer Klima/Lüftungsanlage, die unterhalb des Fensters von einem Betrieb vor allem auch in der Nacht sehr laut sein kann.
My stay was perfect. Zi and Jens were extremely accommodating to all my needs. They went out of their way to be helpful and were very flexible with my schedule. The space is cozy and the wood burning stove was perfect. Comfortable bed, great shower. All in all 5 stars. Many thanks.
Zi and Jens were away the time we stayed but she asked the cleaning lady Raquel to meet us with the keys when we arrived. As probably mentioned before, there are a lot of stairs to climb so bear in mind!
As to the apartment - gorgeous! Very spacious, a paired back, stylish, loft type apartment that gets beautiful light the sunny mornings we were fortunate to have. The kitchen was well equipped should you want to cook - and again, very big!
The location was fantastic, at the tip of Chinatown it's a short walk to Soho, East Village and more. Loads of great asian food stores/supermarkets to pick up groceries if you'd like to cook. I'd never considered staying in Chinatown, but after this trip I'd rather stay Downtown!
All in all a superb apartment. Would definitely stay here agin - thank you so much!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Studio, it was our first Airbnb and it didn't disappoint; we were looking for something different from the usual hotel room or flat rent. The studio is creatively furnished for that unique experience we were looking for, it still has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Jens was flexible on time and welcomed us when we arrived a bit early. He quickly showed us around and left us to relax after our journey. The wood burning stove is magical if you are staying in the winter months_ when we came back after a cold day out Jens had already made a fire for us! The location of the flat could not have been better: Chinatown, Little Italy, The Lower East Side (very cool) Soho (great shopping) and Downtown are all right on the doorstep you just have to choose! On our way back to the studio we picked up a snack of dim sum, or a sweet roll and coffee in the morning were both less than $5 for 2. It is possible to stay here very cheaply, we would love to come back.
This was my first AirBnb and it definitely won't be my last! I absolutely love Zi's place it was amazing. Very clean and sleek style allows you to come in from a long day and relax. The apart itself is extremely quiet which is an added bonus. My favorite feature was the fireplace :) that seriously made my day to come home to that. I'd definitely recommend this place to everyone, but be prepared there are a lot of stairs. It's NY you the city is like your own personal gym no need for and extra workout!
Wir wurden sehr gut über alles was wir für diese Unterkunft benötigten informiert. Man hat uns sogar einige Restaurant-Tipps gegeben, die sehr toll & hilfreich waren.Während des Aufenthalts hat man sich schnell und kompetent um uns gekümmert. Bravo! Der Anstieg in den 5th floor fiel uns von Tag zu Tag leichter. Wir kommen wieder!
We had an awesome stay at the loft; the location and ambience was really good. Zi Ying was really helpful in accommodating us even whilst being away. Though the kitchen is shared we never had a problem with noise or other people coming into our apartment. Highly recommend this place if you're looking for somewhere in the lower east side, we walked almost everywhere and subway was very close.
The space was near perfect when I showed up. Check-in was flawless and flexible, Zi provided restaurant suggestions in the area, and the room even came with a surprise hammock for lounging. Wi-fi worked great and Zi's collection of magazines and books were a rad bonus.
The location was just at the tip of Chinatown and a short walk to Soho. There was a subway stop just around the corner, a park a couple blocks away, and it was super easy to hail a cab from right in front of the apartment building.
First Airbnb experience & definitely not the last!!
Could not have asked for a better location in Manhattan – close to all the trendy cafes in East Village, SOHO shopping and subway just around the corner! Epic apartment & so NYC! We could have done with a bigger blanket & bigger pillows but still slept like babies from all our daily NYC adventures. Gens was informative – giving us not only local knowledge of the city but for our next destination also.
Highly recommend this apartment to anyone having second thoughts… do it!! ;)
