I had really good time at Maria´s place. Although I spent most of the time outside,I enjoyed talking with Maria when back. Good price-quality relationship. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars in the area. I´ll recommend it!
It was nice to stay with Maria. She is friendly, laid-back and willing to help in anything she can. We had fun sharing our stories!
Maria was an excellent host and her apartment is extremely well located within lower east side.
The location, Alphabet City, is close to lots of great cafes, restaurants, parks, etc. Maria's apartment is loaded with artifacts from her travels, but clean and interesting. Maria is great: friendly, welcoming, open-hearted. I guess from time to time, different rooms are available. The one I had was a good size, with a desk in it, and a sleeping loft, and for the first night it was fine. Second night, not so comfortable. Third night, I felt like I was sleeping on a bag of sand (sorry, Maria! Maybe I just don't have enough meat on my bones.) The loft was accessible by ladder, which felt a little treacherous in the middle of the night. All that being said, it was a great location for me. I was out and about all day, every day. The place could've been the Ritz and I wouldn't have stayed inside any more. And the price was right. I enjoyed my conversations with Maria, her roommates were accommodating. All in all I enjoyed my stay.
Maria is a great person and was a very careful hostess. I wanna go to NYC again just to hear her incredible stories. More than just a hostess, Maria became a friend.
Had a great stay at Maria's place. I stayed for 4 nights and came home every morning around 5-6 am (NY doesn't let you sleep!). Even though the apartment is small and we were 3 persons and a cat, privacy wasn't a problem. Maria is a super cool and open person and her apartment a really unique place with a vibe from the many world travellers that come through as well as her own travelling to many places. And the location is everything! I look forward to next time!
Beautiful place...... The house is really nice, it's clean and confortable, it's close to anything.... Maria is a very Niceee person.... I m very happy to been there.... I ll be back again......!!!
The apartment location is great if you need to be in lower part of Manhattan or around the Village. The area has many restaurants and clubs within few block walking distant from the apartment. The room is small but good for short term stay. Maria is a pleasant and social person. She is keen to provide her guests with hints about NYC and experience the city as a local rather than tourist.
Ideally located between uptown and downtown Manhattan, a nice place for a very cool budget. And Maria is a very nice and welcoming person !
Maria is my wonderful neighbor in the hood.
she supplies me with special lotions, potion and cremes, ideas, books, gifts and yes she is quite a traveler. we miss her when she is gone but of course there always is the internet to stay in touch with her.
Maria makes for a wonderful host welcoming people into the City, making them feel comfortable in her home, safe in the neighborhood and helping them get the most out of their New York experience through her wisdom and support. She´s one of the most interesting people in the East Village-- it´s a total privilege to stay at her place!
Maria is a very warm, welcoming personality. She is very open minded and made me feel at home in her house right away.
