Fun, easy-going, well-traveled and quite knowledgeable about New York City.
The studio is very well placed. it is clean and offers what you need for your holidays. We met Sasha couple of weeks before our travel he gave us all information needed to have a nice trip.
thank you Sasha :)
Sasha lives in the most perfect location in New York City -- right in the heart of the West Village. The street is lined with great restaurants, bakeries, cafes, patisseries, and ice cream shops. The studio itself is quiet and cozy -- it's shoe-box sized but you'll have a cozy station for your stay right in the heart of the (dare I say) best neighborhood in Manhattan. Sasha was extremely helpful, responsive, and friendly (we communicated by phone and email but didn't meet in person). Highly, highly recommended.
we stayed 3 nights at Sasha's apt, it was very homey, super comfortable bed, (you would never know it was a sofabed)
Loved having the espresso machine, and fridge.
Although we did not cook, (too many fab resto's in NY,) he had everything you would need if you chose.
It a nice option to sit on the fire escape and people watch, and we were very grateful for the air conditioner, did a great job of cooling off the apt in July heat!
It was our first time staying in someones actual home, so it was a little strange that most personal belongings were there, Made it like staying at a friends.Sasha was easy to communicate with, and always answered emails promptly answering any questions.
If you want a comfortable home like stay in another city, in a superb location, Sashas place is great. although most perfect for a couple or single, as there is only one bed, (unless he puts an air bed.)
Me and my wife went for a couple of days in New York and stayed at Sasha's place because of it's perfect location.
The studio is located on Bleecker street which is an awesome street with an amazing good variety of shops and restaurants.
Moreover you are just a couple of blocks away from Soho.
Sasha was of great help to us mainly for recommending places to go to. I'm a real Jazz fan and he provided extended information on all sort of places to go to.
The studio was clean and tidy, clean sheets and towels and everything was just smooth and relaxed.
Because of it's perfect location the place can get noisy at night but if you are using ear plugs it won't bother you.
We do recommend Sasha's studio !
I had an incredible experience staying at Sasha's place, the location is great, the studio is awesome, it is so New York, brick exposed, i loved the decoration, Sasha has great style, the funny cards in the bathroom, hot water was never a problem. It is so spacious. I felt bad when i had to leave the place, honestly, I highly recommend staying at Sasha's place, there's nothing like the privacy of having your own place in NY. Thank you Sasha!!
Great location! I was a bit worried that it would be noisy, given the proximity to 7th Avenue. No issues with that and no noise from the neighbors. We never met Sasha,, since he was out of town. He mailed us the keys priority mail so that they would arrive before we left. He always answered our emails with questions. The apartment really is spacious (for NYC), much better than a hotel room and of course much less expensive. Why pay for a maid to make your bed and straighten up your towels? We thought it was kind of cool that you can actually feel the subway rumble (if you pay attention) when the train goes through many levels below you. And the bed was comfortable!
Sasha's place was great! His place was very clean and incredibly convenient. We didn't find noise to be an issue at all. If you live in a city you won't be disturbed by level of noise from the street. The bed is a fold out but pretty comfortable.
La casa è come nelle foto!! la zona è fantastica piena di negozietti carini ristorantini e pub! una delle vie più belle di New York, ha reso la nostra vacanza in questa città entusiasmante!
pur non avendo incontrato Sasha direttamente è stato molto gentile e mi ha mandato una dettagliatissima mail con molte informazioni utili e puntuali!
Great location and great introduction email and instructions from the host on practical issues, getting there and the neighborhood.
Great location, very clean and everything you need is provided. Only downside is the street noise.
Sasha and Kate braved bad weather with good grace and managed to see the Namaqualand daisies between storms. That took dedication. They're great guests and really interesting people.
Sasha's place is amazing!! His apt is truly in the heart of the city with tons of wonderful restaurants and cafes near by. I personally love his area. His apt is a real gem too. Open brick walls and great colors. Very cozy,comfortable, and neat. I highly recommend Sasha's place!!
Sasha is an extremely knowledgeable host. When he lived in SF he was well-known for hosting tours of SF and was a wealth of information on every part of SF history.
I don't doubt that his knowledge of NY is the same - anybody staying at his place will likely get a custom list of things to do, tailored to your specific tastes better than an issue of TimeOut NY.
And, of course, the location is unbeatable and looks awesome, you get to experience the unique culture of a typical Village life.
Sasha has a great place with plenty of space and nice interior, but most important is the location - you'd be next door to many of the coolest bars, restaurants, jazz cafes etc that New York has to offer. Sasha is very reliable and keeps the apartment in great shape. Highly recommended!
