The apartment was in the best location for our needs. Pick up and drop off of the keys was easy and Anne was very helpful and fast to help when something was missing. The host were very flexible. Our only suggestion is that the apartment could be cleaner. We definitely recommend this place to our friends when visiting from Italy.
Basile & Anne-Claire were great hosts. The apartment was in a great location, near all the bars and clubs in the LES and right near some of my favorite restaurants. We arrived to a spotless quaint apartment that was very comfortable and well decorated and they left us towels and extra linens. The extra set of keys came in handy and they were easy to accommodate giving us extra few hours on the last day before we checked out. I would certainly recommend staying with them.
Très bon séjour au sein d'un appartement impeccable, très bien placé et surtout très fonctionnel avec tout ce dont nous avions besoin. Anna et Basile on été de très bons hôtes, tout était prêt à notre arrivée. La communication était chose simple, Basile était très réactif à chacune de nos questions ou demandes.
Merci aux deux hôtes et si nous devons repasser par New-York c'est avec plaisir que nous reprendrions contact avec eux !
Very pleasant stay at Anna and Basile's home. We were four people and we had enough place to be comfortable. The appartment is well placed, it's easy to go wherever you want in Manhattan and in the other New Yok areas.
Basile is very friendly and communication was very easy with him. I definitely recommend this place.
We have a pleasant stay at Basile's apartment. The apt size is right for four people. The host is very helpful and responsive. Basile gave us a lot of useful information about the neighborhood. The neighborhood is safe and full of great restaurants. The only con we have is that the apartment could be cleaner. We definitely recommend this place.
Basile was very friendly. He knows perfectly the neighborhood and likes to share the places to go in East Village. The apartment was perfect for our family of four as we just needed a place to stay at night. It is well furnished and situated just a few blocks from the subway.
The apartment is grate and very well placed. I loved the neighborhood. We were 4 and the couch-bed of the living room is a little uncomfortable to share (just to anticipate you if you´ll share it). For the rest everything was perfect and clean and cozy. Basile is willing to recomendate nice places to go, I deeply recomend this apartment.
I am an airbnb host myself and have high standards for hospitality. I have mixed feelings about our stay at Anne and Basile's apartment.
The location is superb, and the apartment itself is cute, and easy to find. Anne and Basile were very responsive and helpful with recommendations for the neighborhood. Unfortunately the stay didn't meet out expectations, especially for the price ($300 +), and here is why:
-The apartment was really dirty. We were not even courageous enough to take a shower during our stay.
-Somebody obviously stayed there right before us, and the dirty sheets were still crumpled on the bed, with no clean sheets in sight.
- Same story with towels
- The last drop was the fact that apparently somebody came in the apartment while we were out. This was very uncomfortable considering that we had all our things out in the open, and would've out them away, have we known in advance.
In hosts defense they were out of the country, and whoever was assigned to look after the apt did not do a good job. Such a shame, because the decor is really cute, and the location is prime.
In conclusion: it's a decent crash place for a quick trip to NYC, but a bit overpriced for the experience. Hopefully the hosts will learn some hospitality tricks from this and do better going forward.
We had a nice stay at Basile and Anne-Claire's place. The location was very good, close to many stores and restaurants, and easy to reach by public transport. Nice apartment with enough space for three people. The only thing we missed was a water boiler in the kitchen.
We didn't actually get to meet our hosts, but they left clear instructions on how to reach the apartment. The only minus was the fact that we had to leave the apartment quite early on our last day, as other people would arrive in the afternoon. This wasn't communicated to us earlier. But all in all, we had a very nice time in NYC!
We had a very good time in Basile & Anne-Claire's apartment!
It was cosy, clean and in a very nice neighborhood . It also is located in one of the best parts of Manhattan. Trendy restaurants, and close to the metro.
We will book this apartment again !

Basile, Anna and their friend were wonderful guests. They were friendly and took great care of the space. We'd have them back anytime.
