This apartment, with plenty of light, lots of nice features befitting older buildings in lower Manhattan and good amenities, is ideal for two people who are sufficiently fit and don't mind the four-story walk from the ground floor (which we actually liked!). Rina was diligent at pre-arrival communication - we had no trouble picking up the key and getting into the apartment - and she was available once we arrived had the need arisen (which it didn't). And best of all, you can't beat the location; close to the subway, minutes away from streets of burgeoning new restaurants as well as long-established classics, a short walk to the many contiguous interesting neighborhoods and close to Brooklyn. The place really good value and the base for a great stay!
This was my first airbnb vacation rental. I had a few questions and Rina responded right away. She is a great host. One of our flights changed and our meeting time kept getting later due to being on the airport shuttle. She was so nice about the changes. She met us at the apartment gave us the keys and went over a few things. She said if we have any issues to text her. We had wine, eggs, half & half and coffee in the fridge for our use.
Enjoyed our stay at Rina's place. The location was perfect for us and the local area has many great places to eat and drink. Everything about the apartment was as described and Rina was a very accommodating host. Would certainly stay here if it was available for future visit's to the area.
Nice sun-filled 1 BDR apt on quiet street in Lower East Side. Looked just like photos. Very tidy, nice to have well appointed sitting/living room area separate from bedroom. With windows closed in November street noise not an issue for sleeping. Hot water radiator heating, supplementary electric radiant heaters very helpful. Small kitchen, no microwave, dining table for two in living room. Bathroom had both great hot water & pressure. Walking distance to restaurants for all budgets, Essex Market, Union Market, several famous LES delis & bakeries, Tenement Museum, shopping in SoHo. Tasty croissant & coffee at World Atlas Café 30 paces from front door. Useful subway line station only 4 blocks away. Great price for the space & location on offer. Note: Rina stated plainly in listing there is no TV, but did offer use of Bluetooth portable speaker to link with iPod & like. Thanks Rina - would return!
Rina was very informative and responded quickly to our questions. She made all needed arrangements for us to be able to get into the apartment and she even waited for us to get there from the airport to give us a tour, and tell us the small details. Overall a great experience. Plus the apartment is close to a lot of fun bars/lounges/ restaurants and the subway station. Would book with Rina again. Thank you for a very pleasant stay! :)
Wir waren zwei Nächte in dieser Unterkunft. Die Beschreibung war sehr zutreffend und Rina hat uns zuvor mit allen erforderlichen Informationen versorgt, so dass die Wohnungsübergabe problemlos geklappt hat. Wir wurden freundlich in Empfang genommen und bekamen die Schlüssel ausgehändigt. Die Wohnung liegt in einer Gegend, wo es ein paar nette Kneipen und Restaurants gibt. Die U-Bahn Station ist zwei Blocks um die Ecke, man kann aber auch durchaus zu Fuß nach Soho zum shoppen laufen.
Die Williamsburg Bridge befindet sich auch direkt um die Ecke und man kann einen schönen Spaziergang nach Williamsburg unternehmen.
Alles in einem haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Der einzige Nachteil ist, dass das Haus keinen Aufzug hat und man seine Koffer durch ein kleines, verwinkeltes, etwas muffiges Treppenhaus nach oben in den 4. Stock schleppen muss,
This was my first experience with Airbnb, and so I was pleasantly surprised to find that everything went exactly as planned, despite concerns from overly-cautious friends and family. Rina did everything she said she would (via thorough emails), including: laying out fresh towels, preparing the bed with clean sheets and making sure that getting the key was simple and painless on that first day. The apartment was clean and the building was quiet. And we loved the neighborhood! It was lively, but not loud; and we felt safe the whole time.
Rina was a really good host- she sent us detailed information about everything we needed to get to the apartment and to enjoy our stay. Location is the main thing about this apartment- the location is perfect if you want to enjoy LES, can't beat it. Her friend was there to receive us and hand us the keys. The apartment has everything you need and wifi is fast and super handy.
The only downside was that we were a bit unlucky and could not get the shower to work. Rina was really helpful and called me to try and work it out but unfortunately I ran out of credit on my Brazilian phone and couldn't call her back to get help to sort it out (she said there was never a problem with the shower so I guess that was unlucky) so we had to have showers sitting down, which was very uncomfortable and a bit annoying. One of the towels she gave us was not 100% clean but other than that our experience was great.
Rina was a great host. The apartment was clean, and ready for our arrival. Picking up the key was super easy. The location of the apartment is ideal if you plan on spending most of your time downtown. As a frequent traveler to NYC, and a former resident, I'd definitely book again!
Our stay at Rina's flat was enjoyable. Rina is/was an excellent host. Apartment was spacious and clean. She left detailed instructions for us. Picking up the keys and getting into the apartment was super easy. Clean bedsheets, towels, soap, sunscreen, coffee/tea and drinks in the fridge were a nice touch. Also, she has wifi access, which was useful to us to help plan our day. Bed was a little firm, but none-the-less comfortable. A fun neighborhood - Donnybrook is right across the street and Katz's Deli around the corner. We would definitely consider staying there again on a future visit.
I would recommend Rina for any host that wants a trouble free guest who is clean, respectful, and just nice to host. I hope they return soon!
Communicative, respectful and very easy going. Although she did not stay long, Rina was a great guest who I recommend to any host!
Wonderful guest, thank you!
Rina and her friends were great guests. Left the place in great shape. No issues.
Rina was a pleasure hosting. Her communication was excellent and I would have her back anytime.
Rina was a fabulous guest. Communication about arrival and departure times was perfect, and the house was taken care of with utmost care. Beds were stripped and all was left very tidy. All of which made for a happy return for this host!
Rina was great, there was some confusion about where the key was located, will be sure to make it clear going forward. She kept the house clean and was easy to communicate with, stripped all the beds and organized all the garbage. I would have her back again anytime, wish every guest was like her.
Excellent host/guest experience. I would welcome Rina back anytime.
Rina was a great guest - good communication, and took good care of the place, and a bed stripper......would welcome her again! Thanks Rina see you in September?
This was my second time hosting Rina and her friends. And once again, it was a pleasure! The house was immaculate: and they even stripped the beds for me!
Can't wait to have her back.
Rina's apartment is fantastic! Right in the heart of the Lower East Side (hippest neighborhood in NYC, for those who don't know)! Lots of light, very clean and very comfortable. She even leaves you clean towels and single use toiletries for your stay! Between that and the expansive selection of books in her bookshelf, the apartment is a real pleasure, and quite a steal at the current rate. Definitely looking forward to staying here next time I'm in NYC.
