Brian was our first airbnb host and we had a good feeling right from the start. The communication was easy and very friendly. Brian was always there, when we needed him and offered nice tips for partys. The apartement itself is not quite big, but absolutely okay for two people.
The best thing about the apartement is certainly its location. Located between Union Square and Astor Place, you have all the nice restaurants and shops of East village very close by. It is an excellent area to go out and enjoy your time. Although it is very busy outside, you don't hear much of that in the apartement itself.
Despite all this very positive things, we have to mention two negatives. These things werent really Brians fault, but still they were kind of uncool. As Brian wanted to move out of the apartement the next month, an agancy came over nearly every day to show the apartement to people. Brian did not always know when they came, so they suddenly stood in the door and went through the apartement. That would not have been so bad if we didnt have other unwelcomed guests. Due to construction work in the building there were mice coming to the apartement from time to time. Together with Brian we managed to keep them out of the apartement, but first we were shocked. Luckily theses were only temporary things that wont happen in the future and Brian did everything to help us therefore we can totally recommend him as a host. Thanks again for everything you did !
After a long trip, arriving at Brian's apartment could not have been easier. Brian was laid back and helpful, and the apartment is comfortable and in a great location. Would recommend it to anyone visiting NYC!
Dejlig enkel (og ren) lejlighed, som ligger godt placeret i et område med gode restauranter og gode shoppingmuligheder. Meget passende til to personer, men kan også benyttes af børnefamilie, da der udover en glimrende seng er en sofa, der kan slås ud. Der er stille og roligt, da lejligheden vender ud til gårdområde.
Brian er et sødt og imødekommende menneske og var meget hjælpsom med informationer om området.
Skal vi til NYC igen, ville vi ikke tøve med at benytte Brians lejlighed.
We spent 2 weeks in Brian's apartment - location, location, location ! W
It's a great base from which to explore New York. The apartment is within easy walking distance to Astor Place, NYU and Union Square subway stations and also to buses. You could access any destination easily by public transport. There are so many bars and restaurants within a few blocks as well as Trader Joes and Wholefoods markets and the Union Square green market. The apartment has fast wifi included and the queen size bed was really comfortable. The bed room is lovely and light with a view through the trees onto the street. The living room is also comfortable and well set up but doesnt have much natural light. You're in New York to be out and about so this didnt really bother us.
Brian was a great host. He was easy to contact, responded promptly to all of our questions and very friendly.
This is a great apartment, good value and fantastic location.
This apartment is super clean and quite comfortable, on a very quiet side street. The location is really terrific, with lots happening nearby, and it is convenient to public transport.
The living room has a window for ventilation but basically doesn't get any natural light which make some people uncomfortable. Also, you should probably not count on using the couch to sleep a third person as it is really quite small (narrow). The bedroom is small but very pleasant with two big windows; and the bathroom and kitchenette were fine. All in all, a convenient place to stay in Manhattan!
We passed a week in Brian's appartment and it was wonderful!!!! The appartment is located in one of the best district (lot of restaurant and pub one block away) and perfect to live as a real New Yorker! The nearest subway's stations (Alstor and 8th) are on the 6 and N,R and W lines so you can move quickly to all famous places.
The top roof was also nice to have a drink and contemplate Chrysler building and the freedom tower!
We met Brian few minutes to get the keys and we did not have any checkout time to enjoy our last day.
A must rent in NYC!!!
Response from Brian:
Thanks so much Adrien! It was a pleasure to have you and your wife stay at my place, and I'm glad you got a chance to see the roof!
Brian kept in contact throughout the booking process and was waiting for us when we arrived at the apartment to explain the set up. The apartment was well located, many subways handy, and many restaurants. We fen joyed our 10 days, and would do it again.
Brian's apartment worked out great, for my 2 parents visiting for a week. When the cable stopped working, Brian came right over (to hit the reset)- zero hassle.
We booked to stay in this apartment for 7 days, and were delighted we chose it. Having been to NY before, we wanted somewhere to call home, away from the typical 'tourist' areas.
The apartment is in an amazing location for this; walking distance to the Astor Place and Union Sq subway [good for getting uptown, and theres a Whole Foods and Trader Joes supermarket], and for exploring the East and West villages. We explored walked everywhere as we felt so close to everything. It was good for walking to Soho, and Chinatown and It is steps away from some lovely restaurants [The Smith is opposite was particularity good. So nice to have somewhere you can literally roll out of bed to! They have a really nice brunch menu and a good atmosphere.
The apartment itself is perfect for 1 or 2 people, clean, warm and welcoming. It is a studio but quite spacious. Brian was keen to resolve any issues which arose, quickly. Our stay was perfect! For the location, and price, and finding a nice home away from home in NY, it is perfect.
Hope to stay again soon!
Great location, clean apartment, overall it was perfect! Will rent this apartment again in the future.
