I am a scientist working for a large cooperation in the Healthcare industry. I travel lots for work and I love it. West Village is the best place in the world for me to call home.
Babak's place was absolutely fantastic and we would definitely stay there again. The apartment is airy and spacious, well lit and comfortably furnished. The neighbourhood has loads of bars and restaurants, and the subway station is just around the corner. Babak was a great host, flexible with our check in / check out times and also very helpful with recommendations. 110%
My husband and I just spent 5 days at Babaks place in the West Village. First time in New York City, and a little worried; Would everything run smoothly? Would we get the keys? You know - basic stuff :-)
From the minute we booked Babaks apartment, he was available for questions on the phone. He was not there himself to give us keys, but had made arangements for us to pick them up close to the apartment. That worked perfectly. (Just remember to get Babak to tell you, how to open the door. It's like breaking into a bank vault ;-)
The apartment is huge! - and excactely like the pictures you see here. The bathroom is small (very standard for NYC) but nice and clean. Kitchen has all you need in amenities and the bed is a king size with a really good matress. Haven't slept that good in a long time :-)
The huge TV has a few free channels and no cable, which is absolutely no problem, as Babak has Netflix with all the movies you want to see for free :-) You won't need the TV much though - the city draws you away from the apartment all the time anyway :-)
Everything about Babaks apartment is worth five stars.
The neigborhood is quiet, artsy and has a lot of restaurants, bars and shops plus subways just minutes away.
Babak sent us a mini guide for the apartment and for the city, which came in handy.
I would recomend Babaks place to anyone - anytime! And I really hope to stay there again sometime so Babak - please don't move ;-)
We had a wonderful stay at Babak's loft! He was very responsive and made sure everything was comfortable for us. The location could not be more perfect - close to amazing restaurants, shops, bars, and transportation. The apartment itself was quiet, bright, and airy and we highly recommend staying there!
We (wife and I) enjoyed a wonderful 10 days at Babak's apartment recently. The location in West Greenwich Village is excellent. A quiet street, many nearby restaurants, coffee shops etc. Subway is very close. We hired bikes and kept them chained out front with no problems. The apartment is quite large, with a good TV and excellent wifi. Babak met us personally and he was an excellent host. The apartment is very quiet (ie from other apartments) and security was good. Kitchen facilities were fine.
Please note (as per the listing details) that the bed is in a mezzanine loft. It is only partially full height. It was fine for 10 days though. If you were very tall, or had a back problem, it might not suit.
All-in-all, it was as advertised, and our stay in New York was enhanced by this apartment. We would recommend it to friends, and we would stay again.
Our stay at Babak's place was just short of perfect. With the exception of a confusion on key pickup in the beginning , the entire experience went very well. Babak's place is exactly as described and shown in pictures. The place is very clean and organized and the building itself is nice and quiet. The area is convenient to all of the best spots in Manhattan and is really close to the subway and really nice restaurants. Babak is a fantastic host who called us many times and ensured that we were having a pleasant stay. He is a great host and I would definitely stay at his place again!
A great apartment in an excellent location. Private, spacious, and very comfortable, not to mention endless on-demand movies and tv shows. If we ever return to Manhattan this will be the first apartment we'll look at for accommodation.
Babak was easy going and made the stay as easy as possible.
Babak was a fantastic host. He was very welcoming, accommodating and very friendly too. His loft is amazing! It's wide, sunny, clean, comfortable and very well located in the heart of west village. I would love to come back and I definitely recommend this loft.
