We stayed in the apartment for 10 days and it was great. The metro was really nearby, the convenient B&D-lines and by just walking around the neighborhood you would find nice places to eat, drink and shop! Since the apartment is on the sixth floor you get a free daily exercise during your vacation in New York. The apartment was clean and fully equipped, don't be scared by the dodgy hallway it is a nice place to stay!
The apartment was prepared nicely and clean when we arrived. We were a party of five and had enough space for everyone and our belongings. The check-in and check-out times were very flexible and could be adjusted for our needs. The communication before, during and after our stay was always fast and easy. Evelyn was very nice and agreed very spontanious to a cancellation of our last night as our plans had changed. The locations is at the border of Chinatown and the Lower East Side. The surroundings of the apartment and the staircase definitely gave you the feeling of being in Chinatown... but this is part of the New York experience. And the apartment was a place to leave the craziness of the City behind you and relax for a bit. I can definitely recommend this apartment for your stay in NYC!
Thank you for a lovely stay in NY. Evelyn is a great host and always available. The apartment is small, but clean and functional and very great located.
Evelyn was really friendly and communicative from the start and was very helpful and organised about the key handover. She was really nice about our flight being delayed and us arriving close to midnight. She simply arranged for a friend to meet us who was also lovely and helpful and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. Also during our stay Evelyn was very quick to respond and she kindly let us check out at 7pm due to our late flight.
We stayed in Evelyn's place for a full week and thought the location was great. You're right in the middle of Chinatown and get the full experience when you step out of the front door, with markets and loads of other bits and bobs going on to give the area a nice and busy atmosphere. Little Italy is right next door and I strongly recommend Baz's for breakfast. The Lower East Side is also in walking distance and so is the East Village. Brooklyn can be quickly and easily reached by bike or subway.
The apartment had everything we needed and was clean. There were building works going on at the time next door which were pretty noisy, so if you're planning on going clubbing or anything like that and then having a day in bed you're best off checking with Evelyn if the building works are still going on. It didn't matter for us as we're always up early anyways.
All in all I'd definitely recommend staying war Evelyn's as you get a real New York experience.
Our stay at Evelyn's place was great! She wasn't around to welcome us but she had a friend who handed over the keys and gave us the low-down of the apartment and the Chinatown area. The apartment is very spacious and clean, it is very accurately depicted in the pictures. The kitchen facilities are very decent for cooking and everything worked fine. It was also really well heated as we stayed during a colder period. I would highly recommend the apartment.
This was my first experience using Airbnb and it turned to be really pleasant stay with everything went as expected. It was 3 of us and we were looking for two bedroom option which was not easy to find. This was our best bet during New Year holidays. Located in Chinatown, apartment is very well situated only 2 minutes walk away from the nearest metro station. If the weather is nice both financial district in the downtown and most of popular destinations in the upper Manhattan are within 30-40 minutes walk.
One thing to mention that apartment is located on the upper floor of an apartment building with no lift, but Evelyn has warned us well in advance. Apartment was very clean, all sort of sheets and towels and basic utensils available.
One more to remember for international travelers: make sure you have cell phone available as there is no ring on the front door and you will have to communicate to Evelyn somehow to get there.
She is really welcoming and responsive host and very nice person. We did not have any real issues during our stay so i would strongly recommend this place for anyone looking for affordable and convenient accommodation in NYC.
Due to a problem with this apartment, Evelyn proposed us to switch to a smaller apartment in the same area (and a partial refund).
Despite this small issue, Evelyn has been a great host: she's extremely nice and flexible and it was extremely easy to communicate with her.
She's a highly recommendable host.
Die Wohnung sah genauso aus, wie auf den Bildern. Ich war überrascht, wie neu und sauber das Appartment war.
Ich habe drei Wochen in dem Appartment gewohnt. Es besteht aus zwei getrennten, abschließbaren Zimmern, einer Küche und einem Badezimmer. Es ist zwar schade, dass kein TV oder Radio vorhanden ist, dies wusste ich aber durch die Beschreibung schon vor meiner Buchung.
Es liegt mitten in Chinatown, weshalb die Nachbarschaft kaum Englisch spricht. Es gibt viele chinesische Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, die zu Fuß zu erreichen sind. Die Lage war für mich perfekt, weil das Appartment in der Nähe meines Arbeitsplatzes lag.
Es ist eine vergleichbar sichere Gegend für New York.
Evelyn und Monika waren zwei sehr nette Vermieterinnen. Sie standen stehts im Kontakt mit mir und haben mir sofort geholfen, wenn ich etwas gebraucht habe.
Anbindung an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel:
Mit dem Bus oder Subway ist man schnell (in ca. 20 min) beim Time Square.
Nachts hat man lediglich das Rauschen der Heizung gehört, was in New York überall so ist. Vom Verkehr hat man bei geschlossenen Fenstern nichts gehört.
Ich würde dieses Appartment jedem weiter empfehlen.
The apartment was great as depicted in the pictures. It was warm and VERY clean, as well. The only problem we had was that the water in the shower was not warm enough.The building that the apartment is, depreciates its value but the inside of the apartment is well-maintained. It is definitely worthy of its money.
Amelie, Evelyn's friend, was very friendly and easy-going. There was a misunderstanding in the beginning for getting the keys, but everything was easily dissolved.
We had a pleasant experience in Evelyn's apartment. Definitely recommend it.
Hot water in the shower is fixed, it is pity that was not communicated during the guest stay, because it could have been fixed very easily,as it is now.
Appartement très bien situé dans New York (à 2 min du métro).
L'intérieur est propre sans souci particulier.
Le seul problème est la douche où l'eau était froide durant les 5 jours.
Le bruit est un peu présent à ce 4ème étage, mais bon c'est New York !!! :-)
Sinon je recommande l'appartement et l'hôte.
