We really had a great stay at Helen Calthorpe's studio. It was warm, clean, and exactly the way as described. Helen made a great effort to answer our questions, she was very friendly and offered help whenever needed. The apartment is very good located, in Soho, and if you don't want to walk it only takes a few minutes to get to the clossest metro statio. We can highly recommend this place.
Helen is an amazing hostess! We loved the place, we loved her generosity, we loved it all. We really felt like home during our stay. The apt came with fresh fruits, coffee and LOTS of clean linen and towels which we appreciated. We would easily book another one of Helen's Apts if we ever went back to NYC.
If you are expecting luxury in soho for this great price tag, you might be a little naive and you're better off staying in the expensive James hotel across the street. This is fine and modest studio, perfect for 1 person. What is great about this place is the host, a genuine, kind and really sweet Helen. She's been so friendly, welcomed me with fruit and bagels with a very relaxed attitude. The location of the place is amazing and there is soho's only smoking bar right behind the corner!!! :-)
Great place, very well located, excelent host, definitely recomended if you are going to New York City for a real experience, neat and clean, great restaurants around the area, subays close. Great!
We spent great holidays in Helen's appartment. Helen is very welcoming, nice and helpful, The apartment is well located and very central, near from the best areas: tribaca, greenwich village, west village, chinatown, east village and lower east side. I totally recommend you to rent the apartment.
My boyfriend and I had a great time in the studio apartment in SoHo! Helen met us there and was very friendly and welcoming. She gave us some advice about the area and made herself very available if we had questions or needed anything. We will definitely return in the future.
Thank you for a great place to stay, Helen!
If you want to leave as a real new Yorker this is the perfect place to stay. Perfect for visiting, shopping, going out. lots of good restaurants near by. The studio is just as described very Cosy and charming I could stay for weeks and weeks. Helen was very helpful and so adorable. My parents couldn't receive me better. I found my home in NYC
The apartment was in a great location easily accessible by a number of subway links with Broadway a short stroll away. I would recommend this apartment with Helen making the check in process easy, working around our schedule. Thanks again.
The only reason I give this place 4 instead of 5 stars is because there wasn't really a double bed, only a single, and then a larger single, or maybe single-and-a-half bed. So my husband and I couldn't sleep together comfortably during our stay in New York. That aside, the apartment is perfect. Small but definitely no smaller than any typical NYC hotel room, and for a fabulous price. It was very warm and cozy and you can't beat that neighborhood. Helen is very sweet and couldn't have given us a warmer welcome.
Helen was an absolutely amazing host! She provided everything I could need, going above and beyond to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The accommodations were perfect. Everything went smoothly. I truly felt at home. There is no doubt that I will be returning.
