I work in the media, and travel often for work.
The apartment was really amazing, just as described online. Very close to Union Square with most of the major subway lines. Alex was very friendly and always available if I had a question. Very easy to communicate with. Overall just a great experience and I can recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend a great time in New York
Alex’ apartment is really nice and in an extremely convenient location – plenty of subway lines going in all directions, also several buses very close. Many interesting areas such as the East Village can be reached by walking.
Check-in and -out were very well organised (keys handed over by her lovely mother who lives nearby) and effortless. Alex is easily contactable through mobile/text and email, and so is her mother, and both were always very friendly and helpful.
The bed is perfect, very comfortable, and I’m 186 cm (it looks quite small on the photo, but isn’t). The apartment is clean and small, but has everything you might need during your stay, although I never cooked in the small kitchen corner as there are so many options for food to explore in the neighborhood, cheap or expensive or anything in between. Also a couple of supermarkets including Trader Joe’s round the corner. If you travel in the cold season there will be no shortage in heating!
I would definitely try to stay here again if I had the chance.
Alex was accommodating, friendly, and responsive. She checked in several times while we were there, which was a considerate gesture. She was a pleasure to work with.
Her apartment perfectly is spotless, cozy, and perfectly meet our needs. The location is very convenient.
We hope to stay there again.
I traveled to NYC with my fiancee and it was the first time we used airbnb.
Alexandra is a very good host. She was not in town, but she prepared eveything for our visit beforehand. We did not really need any urgent help from her because everything was well prepared for our visit. Anyway, she made sure we could contact her in different ways and she always replied to our messages.
Alexandra is also flexible with the check-in check-out times. We arrived late in the evening the first day and this was not a problem for her.
The apartment is small, but clean and cosy, exactly as described in the advertisement. The kitchen is very small, but enough for us because it was the first time in NYC and there are many options to eat outside.
It was a pity we could not meet in person with Alexandra because she seems a very nice person.
Overall it was a good experience and we would recommend her place to stay in NYC.
I really enjoyed this apartment. The location couldn't be better! The place was clean, super cosy and Alexandra was easily reachable. I will definitely try to stay there again when I go back to nyc.
I have stayed at Alex's apartment twice. It is lovely and comfortable, just as it appears in the photos. Alex (email hidden)--quick to respond, accommodating, helpful, and kind.
Cozy aparment, fantastic heating system (you thank to that in NY in november), the area is perfect for going to Soho,Nolita... , so in general a fantastic experience in NY. Aparment it is just like in the pictures, so it is very nice and charm.
Perfect for my Husband and I. The apartment is cozy with a nice bed and tons of books all around. The kitchen is a bit small but we did manage to have all of our breakfasts and a couple of dinners there. The bathroom is spacious and the water pressure good. It was also very clean!
This apartment is in such a great neighborhood - fantastic coffee shops and pubs and restaurants and grocery stores nearby and best of all near Union Square, one of the best subway stops in the city - access to many lines. I never ever felt unsafe!
The apartment is on the forth floor with no elevator, which wasn't a problem for us! We would definitely stay again!
Great location! The apartment is exactly as promised, located very close to everything that is needed (very useful when you need to unpack your shopping bags in the middle of the day). Alex is doing a very good job in making you feel at home and helps with whatever is necessary (via phone or email). The apartment itself is very clean and tidy and is very convenient for couples visiting the city. The main room is very spacious and convenient. The bathroom is clean and comfortable and there is no shortage in hot water. The kitchen is small (we only used the kitchen for drinks and the occasional breakfast yogurt).
To sum it up, an excellent location (which is the most important thing) and a very convenient apartment.
Alex's apartment could not be in a better location! It was fantastic, so close to everything. It was a good size apt for NYC, and perfect for what my bf and I needed. We had a wonderful time. For anyone with physical handicaps, the stairs might be a challenge, but that would be the only downside :)
Great guest...welcome anytime!!
Put simply: You couldn't ask (email hidden) in Alex. For starters, her apartment is clean and delightful and (to the envy of many of her New York friends) located just a short stroll from some of the best the city has to offer. Add to this the fact that Alex is a lifelong New Yorker, and is more than happy to share her knowledge of the city with guests, and you're in for an awesome, awesome stay.
