I'm a visual artist living in New York.
Andra's place was just lovely. Very comfortable, clean, and in the best of neighborhoods. Most of my favorite restaurants in all of NYC are a 3-5 min walk away - and the BEST espresso is just across the street. I would have loved to stay even longer... it was the perfect retreat!
Beautiful and comfortable space. Excelent location.
We´ve never met Andra but a friend of her was waiting for us when we arrived. Very friendly and easygoing.
I would definitely go to Pristine again.
Excellent location, cool and really pristine - even better than in the pictures! Andra and her friend very helpful and uncomplicated. Totally recommend it!!
La casa di Andra è in un'ottima posizione, l'est village e i quartieri intorno sono il cuore pulsante di NY! La casa rispetta esattamente le foto pubblicate e come già è stato evidenziato mancano delle sedie e un divano. Il parquet e le finestre sulla strada sono un po' rumorosi, ma si dorme comunque bene. Andra è una padrona di casa gentile e disponibile. Consiglio questa abitazione per chi ama vivere la vivacità di NY.
everything was perfect! loved the apartment and andra's a great host! will definitely stay at her place again if i'm coming next time :)
This is a lovely spot within walking distance of everything you want to see in NY. The apt. was nicely furnished and comfortable. Only thing missing was a couch to chill and read a book. But it is NY so who needs a couch? I would definitely go here again.
After travelling for 2 weeks we were looking forward to having an apartment for 5 nights to relax in and located in a great area. The area was great but the apartment was not so relaxing.
Pros: Andra and her friend were very easy to communicate with, good size apartment, great area with lots of restaurants & bars near by, we felt safe walking around day or night, comfortable bed.
Cons: Although the photos on AirBnB show a TV, there was no TV, no CD player, no radio, thus no way of listening to music without using an iPod with headset. No lounge chair or couch, just 2 wooden chairs and no proper table to eat at, so we could only sit on the beds to relax. Only 1 enamel cup, we had to buy some coffee cups. No map or any info on the city, all other AirBnB places we stayed at had this. Although on 1st Ave, traffic noise was not an issue at all, however the resident in the apartment above was up before 6am each day and when moving about their apartment (which they did constantly) the floor boards creaked loudly and sleeping in was not possible.
Some people would not find any of the above an issue but for us it was but we did still love NYC.
Myself and two friends stayed at Andra's apartment for three weeks in October.I cannot recommend this apartment enough! Here are my reasons why:
- All transactions with Andra were silky smooth! From communication prior to arrival, to the exchange of the apartment key.
- The apartment is tidy and clean and comfortably fits three people.
- Excellent location. Situated in the East Village.
As soon as you step out into the street, you're amongst an array of bars, cafes/restaurants, hookah lounges..all without the craziness of Downtown.
- Safe area. It is important to note that we were three girls travelling in a foreign country and at no time did any of us feel unsafe in this area.
- Transpotation is very easy and affordable from here. There is a subway a few blocks away. Taxis are very cheap and easily accessible! We caught taxis everywhere which was a very comfortable and cheap option. If you are traveling with a few people, taxi taxi taxi!
- If you want to truly experience NYC life like a local, at an extremely reasonable price, Andra's is the place to stay!
I would definitely stay at Andra's again. I loved my NYC experience so much that I plan to visit again as soon as possible in 2010. Thanks Andra!
It's a lovely clean space located in a great area to explore with an abundance of restaurants and bars. The east village has a lot of character. It's close to subway stations that connect to pretty much anywhere in manhattan. I highly recommend.
My folks stayed here when they were visiting and they liked it a lot. Great location. Clean and comfortable space. Andra made the whole process simple as well. Highly recommended!
Andra was a GREAT guest! A pleasure to host, very easygoing, communicative and friendly!
Andra is a second-time guest at my place and I have to say she is one of my favorites. She is welcome anytime. Always respectful. Very clean. Easy to communicate.
Andra & Company were the perfect guests in my home. Upon check-in communication was swift & easy. Upon check-out clean up was effortless. I would be more than glad to have Andra again as my guest!
Andra and Mike are amazing guests. They left the place just like they found it -- in pristine condition. I couldn't ask for better guests. I'd love to have them stay at my place anytime and highly recommend them to anyone who is reading this. Cheers.
