The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very nice experience when I live in Bei's home. The location is near to Soho and Chinatown, very convenient.
It was nice to meet Bei, although briefly. The loft was really nice and met the description. The neighbourhood was classic busy Chinatown.
The apartment is a great spot to stay in manhattan. 5min walk to Soho and Brooklyn-bridge. Bei (email hidden), everything was super convenient. Thank you Bei. Looking forward to come back.
The location was convenient and the metro stops are not too far a walk from the apartment but Bei was not around and the check in was a little awkward due to translation issues. We were left in the lounge area while a woman cleaned the room we were to be sleeping in.... The room was clean though!
There was a few people staying at the same time but everyone kept to themselves so it wasn't a problem with a few other couples in the house.
We had a nice time at Bei's apartment. We were lucky to have the room with the windows, there was also a fan in the room. The stairs to the fifth floor are a bit of a problem with a heavy suitcase, so be aware. Communication with Bei was prompt and precise, although we did not meet her herself. The apartment is shared with other guests, but we enjoyed meeting these people. Great loft with beautiful light. Lively neigbourhood, close to different subways.
Great stay at Bei's place. Nice room, great service and quick response from Bei. The apartment is close to everything. We would defenitely stay there again :-)
Great host! She gave us lots of helpful information for traveling tips and dinning places. Apartment is always clean. Beware of the stairs, but if you'(email hidden) individual than I am, then you should be fine.
Todo fue correcto, no tuvimos ningún problema a la llegada.El apartamento es grande y las habitaciones cómodas! Se agradece que haya dos baños...aunque estaban todas las habitaciones llenas tuvimos privacidad y tranquilidad. La zona es curiosa y está bien conectado, dos o tres estaciones de metro cerca, e incluso a pie se llega al puente de brooklyn, soho, distrito financiero...
Repetiría sin ninguna duda!!!
Bei was not there, but instead sent a friend to meet me at the apartment upon my arrival. Unfortunately he did not speak English, so there was a bit of a communication barrier, but he set us up with everything we needed.
There were a few quirks; the bed is actually a futon, the second bathroom light was burnt out which made it impossible to use at night, and it was extremely warm. We had to have the fan on every night.You can also cook thanks to the kitchen, but I set off the very timid fire alarm when I was trying to make something in the oven--so be careful! Also, the 5 storey walk-up got a little tiring.
Otherwise, it was clean and the other guests were very respectful. It was a great location, close to subways, and we didn't have any trouble finding a taxi when it wasn't raining. All in all, we had a very good stay!
Luong and I enjoyed having Ms Bei share our home for the week. She joined us a few mornings on our trips to the market and traditional Vietnamese breakfast. She is willing to try new foods and enjoys them. We look forward to seeing her again someday.
