Bao was a friendly host that went above and beyond to make me feel welcome during Tet, when most of the city was closed in celebration. He is also busy, so you can experience lots of space in the apartment. It was convenient to have an ex-pat who also speaks Vietnamese as a host!
The apartment is very safe and as pictured: clean with hip decor. The room had good air conditioning, a comfortable bed, and is otherwise pretty basic (which was fine with me).The shower had good pressure and hot water, the wifi was fast, and Bao hooked me up with bottled water. This apartment is in a more residential area, so perfect for someone who doesn't want to stay in an extremely touristy area (but also still very close to District 1).
very, very nice area and very friendly and sympathic host. but: bedroom was definitely not the one shown on the picture, appartement was not freshly cleaned. on the whole: okay.

I had a pleasant stay at Bao's. If you wan to live on Manhattan, you can not really live any better....
The room is nice and clean with a big bed and Bao is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommendable.
This was the perfect place to stay for my last visit to NYC. Before, I stayed in hotels. Never again. Bao's apartment gave me a roomy, well-equipped, clean and safe home away from home that changed the character of my whole visit to the Big Apple. Bao was the model host, concerned for my comfort, easy to communicate with, and responsive. The apartment is in the heart of Nolita, just south of East Houston. Taxis are easy to hail there, and the Metro is just a block and a half away. The amenities were all there: the TV, the kitchen, a great shower. A+ from this professor!
Everything was great other than it would have been nice to have clean bed sheets and have a working A/C. Prime location and everything in the bathroom works! We ended up walking everywhere -- SoHo, Chinatown, East Village, Washington Square Park. We even got all the way to Wall Street without incurring any transportation expenses! The apartment's also on the 5th floor so it was a great warm up every morning! Bao is very responsive to emails, text messages and calls.
what a lucky it was to find Bao and his place!
we had a great stay there. the apt is exactely as you see in the pics, cool and stilysh and the neighborhood i think is the best place to stay in Manhattan. it's full of nice restaurants and shops, and also there's wholefood in the next block. The Metro is very closed, but you can reach many places by walking too. All the other neighborhoods around Nolita are so cute.
We haven't seen Bao but he was always available on line for any question or need. Very helpful and kind.
also, we've had the apt for ourselves most of the time and ... we really felt like home.
So, of course we recommend Bao and his apt (but also we hope to find it available when we'll be back in ny!).
Bao's apartment was perfect and exactly as described. We felt like we had the place to ourselves, the facilities were super comfortable and the location was unbeatable. I definitely recommend this property and Bao as a host.
Great guest. Look forward to his continued stay with our downtown LA Lofts!
Bao is a photographer/filmmaker from NYC and enjoys wandering around new places and has been to Amsterdam many times but his girlfriend has not. They came with the train to Amsterdam and are interested in culture particularly art, music, and film. I pointed out some interesting less well known museums and art galleries like Foam, solely dedicated to photography exhibitions. The appreciated the central location of the apartment on the canal with all things worth visiting within walking distance. They are a great couple, easy going and to communicate with. They left the place all cleaned up and tidy. Thanks for that! Im can recommend Bao and his girlfriend as guests very highly.
sono stati due ospiti molto gentili e molto carini, hanno lasciato la casa abbastanza in ordine, spero di riaverli ancora miei ospiti nel loro prossimo viaggio a Venezia. Giovanna
