Ziva was a great host! Very accommodating and flexible with check in and out times. She even let me leave my bags at hers until my late night flight! The apartment has everything you need the bed is really comfortable and comes with a list of things to check out in the neighbourhood. Perfect location!
I stayed in Ziva´s apartment for a week with two friends. We had a great time, and every thing is close by in lower manhattan, and that were we wanted to be. Anyway the metro is around the corner. We had a easy tjek-in and out of the apartment, because Ziva was so flexible, and she helped us out, about what to do in the neighborhood. So if you want to stay down town close to every thing, you have have to stay in Ziva´s apartment....
We stayed at Ziva's lovely and fully equipped 1 bedroom in the Bowery for a week, and what a perfect location! Ziva is a wonderful host and helped make our stay easy and comfortable. I highly recommend staying at Ziva's, you will feel right at home in the heart of NYC!
I arrive to Ziva's on a Sunday lunch time. She was waiting for me before doing her Sunday jogging. She was really nice host and had some pancakes waiting.
I was there only for a week on business. And it was quite good
The flat is ok
The location is great!!!! And I can't stress enough how location means in NYC!
But the flat was absolutely filthy!!
I am sorry Ziva but it was so so so filthy. First night my pillow fell on the floor and it was so so bloody dirty.
So I start to look under the bed and furniture and it was just so filthy!
I would have cancelled if I could. But not way of cancelling in advance because you won't get any help.
I guess that's part of the risk you pay with airbnd. But since it was company paid then I am locky.
All in all great location. Youbbetter check it is clean....!!!!
I've known Ziva since 2006, when we met at a coffeeshop in the west village. Since then, she has become one of my best friends. You cannot find a more generous, caring, thoughtful and kind person. She's also quite brilliant and works a a scientist and assistant professor at Columbia University, making the world a better place. I've been fortunate to have stayed at her apartment, too. It is a true one bedroom, with great light in the bedroom, elevator service, and the perfect location, where the East Village meets the Lower East Side. It's a 5 minute walk to Nolita, Soho and Noho. So, you've got the best shopping and nightlife at your fingertips.
I have known Ziva for many years in NYC and can unequivocally state that she is one of the most generous, gracious, kind, welcoming and loyal people I have the great fortune to call my friend. I have stayed at her beautiful apartment when in a bind and could not have had a better experience. She keeps the apartment neat and tidy and there is nothing quite like waking up to the sunshine on your face she references in her posting. I would absolutely recommend Ziva's apartment to anyone traveling to NYC. The location is ideal and Ziva will go out of her way to make sure you have an incredible stay.
