We had a wounderful stay at Brian's place. The apartment was clean and nice. Subway is just around the corner. Neighborhood was nice and many pleasant cafes were in close proximity. Check out Cafe DeNora next door, they have cheap and good breakfast. Lure yourself by Doughnut Plant to enjoy some tasty doughnuts. The apartment was fit for two people. Bedroom is facing the backyard , so it is quiet and peaceful at night. If we had questions Brian was quick to respond and he texted us several times during our stay to make sure everything was okay. We recommend this place for two people, three would be too crowded.
Brian's apartment was perfect. When our accommodations fell through at the last minute, I messaged Brian and - even though he was many time zones away on vacation - he got right back to me and made it work. The location is perfect, and Brian went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Highly recommended. When I'm back in NYC, I hope to stay here again.
My friends and I had an amazing spring break staying at Brian's place. The location is superb - it's literally a few steps away from the subway station. We also had a few meals at Ming's cafe just downstairs and walked around exploring the neighborhood. It was super convenient. The place was clean and as described, and Brian provided towels, soap + shampoo. I slept on the couch - he also provided an extra blanket. We cooked breakfast a few times too since there was a pan and utensils. A major plus was getting to watch tv during our stay (thanks for letting us use your Netflix!). Brian was very efficient in communicating with us, checking in to see how things were. I would definitely recommend Brian's space and come back again.
My bf and I enjoyed our stay at Brian's apartment. Location is superb - just few steps away from the subway. Neighbourhood is quiet but not too far away from the hustle and bustle of chinatown along canal street. Apartment was really clean and comfy. Amenities were sufficient as we cooked quite a number of meals. Took us a while to figure the TV but we had a good variety of channels. Heater was good but there wasn't a hair dryer though. Check in and check out was a breeze. Instructions were clear and brian was fast and responsive. A great airbnb experience!
It was an amazing week, thanks to Brian first ! His apartment is really perfect : furniture, design, confort, place in the district. There are bars and restaurants so good and friendly to have fun !
For sure, I will come back in this flat when I will be in NY.
WOW! The description was spot on. Brian's unit is in the middle of a very cool neighborhood with great restaurants, bars and grocery stores all within 60 seconds. The major subways are all literally at his doorstep. Everything went smooth thanks to his longwinded (hah!) email that left no question unanswered. He also instantaneously offered support when we couldn't figure out how to use one of the appliances in the kitchen at 11pm (he is literally 24 hours available).
The art around the apartment was really nice - we took a ton of snaps for Instagram from his books and painting collection.
Finally, if you end up booking here, MAKE SURE you go to Dimes for breakfast right next door (best avocado and bacon/egg sandwich in the city) and Forget Me Not across the street for some of the best grub in LES and good, strong drinks from the friendly bar staff.
Forget hotels - I am booking here next time if his busy calendar permits.
The apartment was very clean and very accessible, keys were collected very easily and instructions were very detailed. Highly recommended!
Staying at Brian's place in the lower East side was perfect. Small but has everything you need and in a great location, right next to a subway. He was extremely helpful and responded whenever we had a question.
Recommend for 2 people to stay, as the couch/blow up mattress was not ideal. Otherwise 10/10 stay!
Brian was attentive and checked in with me once I arrived to make sure everything was okay. Also sent a very thorough and helpful email about getting to his place from the airport. Good place for 3 people. The couch is fine if you're not tall. I slept like a princess (5'7"). :) Nice and cozy, perfect place to come back to after a full day/night out.
And the F train is right next door!
I had a really nice time at Brian´s appartment. I was travelling alone and it was really in a good spot of the city to live de typical Manhattan life. people from "Forget me not bar" half a block from there where amazing with me too! I would really recommend this place!!! And it is only one floor by stairs. Thank you very much!
Brian is really nice and easygoing. He's used Air BnB a lot and rents out his own place in NYC, too, so he's experienced and well travelled and is a very forthcoming and independent guest. I would highly recommend hosting him.
I only met him briefly, but from my first impression I can say that Brian is a very nice guy and has an interesting journey both in the past and ahead of him. Prior communication via Airbnb went well as well.
Brian was a super guest. Very kind, respectfull of our place. It was a pleasure to welcome him . I recommend him !!!!
Brian was a perfect guest. Very kind person, respectfull of our place. It was e pleasure to have him in the flat.
I highly recommand him.
Brian was an amazing guest - punctual, considerate and understanding. Thank you, Brian!
Brian was an excellent guest who I'd recommend to any host. He is a host himself so he's quite familiar with the Airbnb system. Communication was never a problem and he treated my place just as his own.
It is my pleasure to recommend Brian--he was a caring and considerate guest--I hope you enjoyed the space--Recommended Absolutely
Great and gentle guest!!
Highly recommend this guest to stay your house.
Brian was an awesome guest to have, not only was he extremely kind, reliable and low-maintenance, but he left the loft in tip top shape. He was my first renter and I can honestly say due to my experience with him as my guest I will go on to continue renting out my loft. I wish him well in his travels and hope to host him again.
Brian was a great a guest. He left the place very tidy and we would be very happy to rent to him again. cheers Alex
