I stayed at Serge's place in Brooklyn for a two-day work event in Manhattan close to Washington Square. The apt was in a perfect location. Serge is a very kind and courteous host, even leaving drinks in the fridge (very convenient by the way). I highly recommend Serge and would stay there again! - Mike
Serge was a great host! He sent us all the house rules/info we could need, and recommendations for awesome nearby food/drinks places before we even arrived. The apartment was really well done, conveniently located (very easy subway to Manhattan) and clean. Nice touch for me as a Brit to have on-site tea making facilities! Perfect spot for a couple to stay for a few days.
I visited Brooklyn for a few days recently and had a great stay at Serge's place. The apartment is just as described, clean, and close to the Graham Ave L (3 short blocks away). Serge provided quick and clear communication regarding check-in and check-out, and I appreciated his list of local recommendations. I also enjoyed the record player and nice selection of albums.
Serge was a wonderful host! He was very prompt with his replies and provided detailed directions from the airport to his flat. He also provided us with awesome recommendations to restaurants/bars/things to do in the area and a welcome note with a bottle of wine. Perfect host!
The flat is beautifully decorated, clean, quiet, and has probably one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The flat is in a great location - just a couple of blocks to the subway. I highly recommend staying here! It was a perfect way to celebrate my husband's birthday. We definitely will be staying here again when we come back to NYC.
We had a lovely stay in serge's apartment. He was considerate and left us a bottle of wine, and lots of fresh linen and towels and basic ingredients. The apartment is on a lovely street in a great area - lots of good coffee and food within a walk.
The walk but the stairs with a big case is a bit of a challenge, and the Friday and Saturday night revellers were a bit noisy - but heck we were in New York. The apartment is smaller than it looks on the photos but I stayed comfortably with my adult daughter and her boyfriend and they stayed in the spare room and gave me the incredibly comfortable king size beds. We were happy with our stay would would recommend.
This is a perfect little apartment in the middle of Williamsburg - walking distance to all the bars and restaurants that this hip area has to offer. It was like a luxury hotel suite but without all the hassle and cost (hotels in Wburg are crazy expensive!) it was perfectly clean, luxurious white and crisp bed linen, quiet street, always hot water and very cozy...everything you could wish for! Serge was a fab host - communication was easy and service was top.
This was my first experience with airbnb and I had some concerns about sending money to a third party to secure a stay at a privately owned accommodation. I worried about it right up to the point of walking through the door. Turns out, it was a perfect place for us! Everything was as described. Location was great. Serge was helpful in his communications and prompt with his replies. There were treats for us when we arrived. We would stay here again and we would recommend this place to our friends.
This place is absolutely gorgeous and I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. I stayed here with my parents and we were all very impressed by the design and charm of the apartment. It's cozy, quiet, very clean and well located on 7th Street in the heart of the East Village. There is actually a Hastens bed in the larger room, which my parents loved and was their first time sleeping in one. I slept very well in the guest room which was far enough from their room for great privacy. We asked Serge where he purchased the bedding because the sheets were very soft, clean and comfortable. Serge is a perfect host and answered all our questions right away, and he supplied the place with wine, snacks and water for our arrival which is a delight and a treat. We received a very good inside list of recommendations for the neighborhood from Serge, and my parents and I took him up on one of the recommendations and had dinner at a fantastic Greek restaurant called Pylos. This was the best Greek food we've had in our lives and highly recommend this restaurant to all guests staying (it's only a little over a block away on 7th Street heading toward Avenue A). The apartment had beautiful lighting with very unique chandeliers, and all of the lighting is on dimmers so we could control the mood which is nice. There was good seating in the apartment so we could have a nice chat and a drink on the table, all we had to do was bring one small chair over from the master room to place across from the small sofa. The bathroom was great and we loved the old style vintage hanging rod for the shower. Thanks for making our experience so wonderful and cheers on the apartment! Highly Recommended !!
Serge went above and beyond any airbnb I have stayed at. He was extremely helpful with tips and advice for things to do in the area. The apartment was fully prepared when we arrived and he had even left us a bottle of wine, chips and chocolate. The place was just as described and we loved it! The area is quiet and only a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants and the MTA to take the L train over to Manhattan. Would definitely stay here again.
Loved staying here. The apartment was very clean, well fitted out and very homely. The location is perfect - a few blocks away from the L Subway, closer to a few other lines which gave us perfect access to both Manhattan and Brooklyn. Best coffee just around the corner and plenty to eat, do and see all within walking distance.
I've stayed in a few Airbnbs and it's always the small touches that make a stay more memorable. Serge left some basic condiments for us (tea, sugar etc), mints on our beds and, wait for it, a bottle of wine and some snacks. Unheard of!
The one thing I would say is that the water in the shower was pretty light and the hot took about 5 minutes to start up, which I'm told is fairly standard for NYC apartments (I remember a Seinfeld episode to this effect anyway).
Serge was an excellent guest...super friendly, and left the place in great condition. He's welcome back anytime.
Your place rocks!
If you like clean, romantic and perfect location then this apartment is for you. My girlfriend and I stayed here when Serge used to advertise on (website hidden) and it was cozy. Thanks again and see you next time!
Talented interior decorator and stunning East Village flat! What he did with this place is unbelievable. Serge is good to do business with, reliable and consistent.
P.S. This place is on 7th Street best block in the EV!!!!
I refer lots of friends from Denmark to stay at Serge's vacation property, and my family also has stayed there. Everyone loves the apartment and the neighborhood, and many have stayed a second time. The place is charming with chandeliers in every room, also wood and marble floors.
Seriously charming spot! I rented the guest room at Serge's for a week when I was in NYC for work. Cutest little room and cozy place. Serge is a super chill guy! :)
I have known Serge for many years. I have referred many people that are traveling to the States and need a room stay. All have had nothing but great things to say. I have personally seen Serges apartment and it is stunning. On top of that he is very accommodating to all of his guests. Plus he lives on the coolest street in the East Village. Believe me you will be happy...
Serge is an incredibly kind, honest and respectful person. He takes his apartment rental very seriously and is a true professional. The apartment itself is a total gem located in the best part of town and beautifully decorated giving you the ultimate NYC experience
