I am a musician and comedian and I frequently travel for work. Please contact me with potential dates, and I'll see if those could work for me.
Ben (email hidden)! We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to (email hidden). His place is larger than expected from an apartment in the city and the balcony with a great view just put the icing on the cake. The location was also perfect; very close to subways and convenient location to begin to your day's journey around the city.
Ben (email hidden). His place is amazing, and he is an awesome guy, period. If your new to the area he'll point you in the right direction. He is trustworthy and has good heart. Consider yourself fortunate to stay with Ben.
I would would rent from Ben again without hesitation and I would recommend his place to a friend. Ben's apartment is in a great location with easy access to the heart of the LES. Ben was great to work with and had his place very tidy. If I were to break down the experience, I'd say 5 stars for customer service, 4 or 5 stars for location (not really in the "heart" of anything but still relatively close to the places most people would want to see in lower Manhattan) and 3 to 4 stars for the aesthetics. If the place were a bit fancier/remodeled, I'd have given my experience an overall 5 stars in a heartbeat.
Ben was friendly, polite and respectful. Definitely recommend him as your guest!
Ben's place is in a decent location on East Broadway that has a nice view from the balcony. His place was tidy and much more interesting and cost-effective than staying in a hotel. Ben was very helpful in working with me to get the key through a neighbor even though he was out of town when I arrived, and though I didn't need any help after I got to his place(which is always the best case!), I'm sure Ben would have been very willing to give me advice on whatever I needed as he is very friendly and left his cell number so I could reach him. All in all, I'd say you can't go wrong booking a stay in Ben's apartment.
