Ben and Jean were really cool people and great hosts. The apartment was kept clean, tidy, and had a nice quiet atmosphere. We all bonded over being in the tech industry and got along quite swimmingly. They took me out for drinks too!
Ben has an awesome apartment. He's a great guy - very inviting and good conversationalist. I wasn't at the apartment much but I would highly recommend the location and apartment to anyone looking to stay in the heart of the LES in NYC.
The only reason I’m hesitant to leave a review for Ben’s place is because I don’t want someone else booking it the next time I come to New York, because this is where I’ll be staying.
His apartment is beautiful, and Ben and his girlfriend were wonderful and helpful. Ben is not home a whole lot so it really feels like you have the whole apartment to relax at. If he is, he will likely offer you fresh coffee in the morning, and advise on the best places to eat in the area. The view from his balcony is also great and you cannot beat the location - the trains you’ll use the most are a minute’s walk from his front door.
As a light sleeper, I have to say I fell asleep every night at the drop of a hat and couldn’t ever hear any noise outside. The bed was also incredibly comfortable.
Overall, if you’re going to stay in New York I (reluctantly) advise that you stay here. Thanks Ben!
Ben is absolutely incredible and so is his place. It's even better than it looks in the photos. There's a ton of privacy, Ben is super chill and laid back, and the apartment is clean and actually specious for NYC! Super close to all the trains and in a cool area of LES.
Ben and Jean were great hosts. It was my first time in New York and their recommendations (and eggs!) were on point.
Apartment was comfortable and well furnished, and the location was awesome and had a number of great places to visit within a few minutes' walk. Wish I could have stayed longer.
Ben was a super awesome host, always considerate, flexible and accommodating. He makes a great breakfast on the weekends and even let me in on it! His place has lots of light, very cozy and clean and I would definitely recommend his place to anyone looking for an Airbnb in NYC. A must stay!
Comfy bed, clean apt, great view of LES area. Ben & Jean were very easygoing and accommodating. The location is great; there are tons of good restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and live music venues within a few blocks.
I had a great stay in Ben and Jean's apartment, it's clean and tastefully decorated, in a beautiful old building. And most importantly, the unbeatable LOCATION!! It is located in the trendiest and artiest area of the city, and there are a plenty of great restaurants around the area.
I love every pieces of furniture in Ben and Jean's apartment, as well as their herb garden at their lovely Balcony. Their apartment is cozy, but has a high ceiling and good structure. I stayed at their apartment for 5 weeks, and I feel fresh waking up in this bright and lovely apartment every day.
Ben is working out of town during my stay so there were his girl friend, Jean, who I shared the apartment with. Jean is a friendly and helpful host, and a lovely friend!! Jean also gave me tips where to go and where to eat. We sometimes went out to dinner together and places that Jean took me to never disappointed me. I would highly recommend their apartment and I certainly would love to stay at his place again next time I come to NYC! xx
Ben and jean were wonderful hosts. We had a lovely time staying with them. They even took us out to a few places.
There place is really well located to see New York and there are plenty of places around to eat at - Ben and Jean also can recommend lots of places.
The bed is very comfortable and the place is very welcoming. The 5 floor walk up wasn't a problem - you get used to it and it isn't too bad.
Would stay here again!
I stayed here for almost 2 weeks in November as I looked for a new apartment in the city. Ben was an awesome host—very accommodating, laid back, and a great guy to hang and talk with. The place is super comfortable and in a pretty sweet location too. I've only used Airbnb a couple times, but this experience was absolutely the best. I highly recommend it!
It was a Pleasure to have him as a guest, you are more than welcome back anytime.
ben was a great and courteous guest, and good communicator. would love to host him again!
Ben was really enjoyable. I was glad I was able to accommodate him for his stay. He was neat, quiet, friendly and really a pleasure.
