Rachel was a lovely host and her home was clean, warm and wonderful. The location was great - a real Lower East Side experience. And a great high-pressure shower with heaps of hot water, plus a lovely Bed. The room was really very noisy at night because of street noise. Cars honking, trucks, etc. Pretty much constantly. But it didn't really bother me because I'm a heavy sleeper, plus I had ear plugs.
A great place and I would definitely stay again!
Great flat in a great area. Easy to get around.
Rachel was very helpful and quick to reply. I definitely recommend staying here.
What a fun place! Rachel's apartment is right in the middle of everything. I had never been to the lower east side and her place is a 5 minute walk from at least 20 bars and restaurants. My best meal was at a tiny bar called "Black Tree". The train is a 3 block walk, so I was also able to meet friends in the village and see a show in Times Square! I'll definitely be staying here for my future visits!
Rachel's place was fantastic. I lived here for almost 3 weeks around Christmas and New Year. It is exactly as it is described here. Location is killer. Proximity to the subway, groceries, laundry and restaurants is unbeatable. It is a great place to stay whether you're a tourist or you're in the city for work. I was both, so I can vouch for it from my own experience. It's a very safe neighborhood. The room and the closet are sufficiently large for one person. I loved the cosy loft bed. Amenities in the apartment are great. There are plenty of plug points in the apartment. Rachel is mostly at work or out and about, so you'll have the whole apartment for yourself most of the time. But she's promptly available if you need any help or have a question. Overall, I had a great stay. Thank you Rachel for the authentic New York experience :) I miss New York already.
Rachel wasn't there much but made me feel very welcome and the apartment is comfortable and in a great neighbourhood — lots of activity, plenty to do. A bit like Shoreditch without so much pretence.
Rachel here place was great and for Manhattan standards I was surprised about the seize. It's actually quite big. Connections to the metro lines are great. Especially when you are coming from JFK there is a really good connection to here apartment. The place was cleaned during my visit so it was in good conditions. Rachel was really flexible with my arrival and departure time which was highly appreciated! I've stayed with here for over a month. One thing to be aware of is that you are not located near a lot of touristic attractions, but since i was staying their for my work it was absolutely perfect.
We loved staying at Rachels apartment!! It is placed in a great area with nice stores, cafés & beautiful surroundings just outside the door. We walked to (almost) everything!
Rachel was very sweet & we will definitely be back, if we get the chance :)
I had a really great stay at Rachel's in Lower East Side. Picking up the keys was really easy and Rachel was super flexible about check-out which was so helpful. She has great local recommendations and made me feel very welcome. I notice the description and reviews use the word 'cosy' a lot but I think that's an overstatement, it's a good sized apartment and room, and I never felt cramped. Clean & tidy, good heating and a great bathroom and wifi. If you have issues with heights or are not steady on knees/ankles then a lofted bed may not be the best choice for you.
Very convenient location with food and bars at your fingertips! Subway stops were also very near.
It was a nice and cosy apartment with a lot of privacy, but it can get a bit noisy on weekend evenings.
The apt. Is in a very convenient location. It is near to a lot of cool spots. The place is very confortable and rachel is very nice. I never felt like an extranger.
