We had a wonderful stay in Marc's appartment! Marc is a great host, really quick to answer and he was really flexible, our late arrival was no problem for him which was great. The place was super clean and we had everything that we needed to make our stay perfect. We were so pleased with the location, very easy to get to almost everywhere in New York and just one stop from brooklyn, and there are loads of places to have great food and drinks just down the street (we recommend An Choi if you like vietnamese food!). It's also great to come back to in the evening because it's vibrant yet a good break from busy uptown manhattan. The only thing is if you're a light sleeper I recommend ear plugs because the street is a bit noisy in the early hours of the morning. We would without a doubt stay here again on our next visit to New York and we were actually quite sad to leave! Hopefully next time we could have more time to chat with Marc, he seems like a really nice guy! Thank you Marc for everything!
It was a very pleasant stay. Marc was a great host and the apartment is extremely well located. We very much enjoyed our stay!
Marcus was a great host, very helpful and quick to respond. The apartment was perfectly located in a quite hip area on the Lower East Side (great galleries, stores and bars). It was clean and equipped with everything I needed. I would definitely stay here again!
As always we thoroughly enjoyed staying here! I love Mr. Mings food, which is about a block away, and the apartment was cool too!
Marc was the perfect host--quick to respond and help out with any issues. I'm only sorry we didn't get a chance to sit down and talk! The apartment is really amazing: very spacious (ridiculously so for NYC), looks as beautiful as it does in the pictures, and in the absolute best location. Went to the Fat Radish down the street for excellent drinks and dessert, and it's walking distance from the east village, and a short subway ride away to the best parts of the city. I really don't think there's a better place to stay in NYC.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Marc was very pleasant to deal with, there was an issue with the building's central heating, but Marc was very accommodating and came over early the morning after it occurred to sort it out. The area was fantastic, recommend.
Marc's place looks exactly like the pictures he shared on airbnb :) it is a cosy alternative and very artistic appartment - really well located (1min to the subway / 5min to a big and nice supermarket :))
He has all the furniture necessary to cook and enjoy the stay. (Even a hairdryer)
I can highly recommend the place to anyone who has not to high standards :) Enjoy!
Marc was great to work with. The apartment is cozy and in a great location. Nice area to work on computer if needed. Even though it is on the "quieter" side of LES/Chinatown, it is area to stay at and everything is super convenient (i.e Bodega, bars..) There are great places to eat, drink, get coffee or breakfast pretty much right outside the door. F-Line is a two minute walk. The perfect NY experience. I would definitely stay there again.
My fellow lady travelers and I (3 women) stayed at Marc's apartment for 4 nights. When the cab pulled up, we weren't sure about how safe the neighborhood was but realized later that many neighborhoods looked like this. We arrived on a Thursday night (our flight was delayed) and Marc was very accommodating and was available to let us in. The apartment was definitely a "bachelor pad." It was very spacious and fit us 3 comfortably. It's not a "high end" apt. but it had all the basics. It was a short walk to the nearest subway station (Essex-Delancey) which was great. On the weekends, there are some great bars within a few blocks. We were able to go out and walk home at 3am without feeling unsafe. We did see the infamous cat in the stairway that was noted in other reviews but it didn't bother us. All in all, if you're here to see the city's sites and you only need a place to rest that has the basics, Marc's place provides just that.
marcus is super responsible and his apartment is in the perfect location! i highly recommend his place for anyone's next nyc holiday.
