We're a French/Korean-American couple with over 15 years living expertise in NYC.
We travel a lot and would love for others to be able to enjoy staying in one of the best neighborhoods in (website hidden),
Linda and Youen
This apartment is in the prime location. It was my first time to New York and I was able to get around to all subways very easily. This apartment was clean and exactly as advertised. If going in the summer the bedroom can get quite warm at night but with the AC and fan we were able to get a comfortable night's sleep. You get Wifi and everything is easy to find and use. Youen was very informative and easy to contact. He also gave us great recommendations for things to do and eat on our visit. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking (email hidden) to stay in a prime location on a visit to New York.
Great cozy apartment, on a quiet residential street. Didn't meet Youen, but did meet his wife Linda at the apartment. She was very friendly and explained the layout, the neighbourhood and transits all over the city. They even provided a map for us to use during our stay which I thought was a really nice touch. King size wall to wall bed thats super comfy! Super hot water, and Wifi included. Linda spread out some magazines for us, but we actually immersed ourselves in a Rubik's cube (we're losers, I know). The building hallways are pretty tight, and you do have to climb up 5 flights of stairs, which isn't too bad, but at the end of a full day walking, it might be a little dreadful.
The apartment is very close to the Chelsea Market (you could eat here everyday) the Highline, and the Meatpacking district. All very short walking distance. The main Subway stop we used was 14th and 8th on the ACE line (2 blocks south). I would recommend this place if you want a quiet homey apartment to recharge your batteries after a busy day out.
We had a great time in Youen's apartment. The location in the middle of Chelsea is just perfect for visiting NY! Youen was very responsive and helpful and he gave us a lot of great recommendations for our stay. There are a plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and the street is very quiet. We needed two nights to get used to the sound of the heating but after that we slept very well. We definitely recommend this place to others!
We loved staying in Chelsea, perfect location!! Host was very responsive and easy to contact. Youen provided a lot of great suggestions and extra information to help make our stay in NYC great! A breeze to check in and check out. Nice and cozy apartment with a comfortable bed, and very little to no street noise with sleeping. Some rainy mornings were hard to get up! Close to ACE line with several great shops and restaurants in walking distance. Would definitely stay at Youen's again for future NYC trips, and recommend to others!
Youen's Apartment was exactly as advertised. Very clean and bright and in a terrific location in the heart of Chelsea. And the bed was amazingly comfortable, I really slept great!
We had a fantastic experience in NYC, much thanks to Youen's great appartment. It's located close enough to anything you want to see in Manhattan, and is a fun, relaxing place to lay your head after a long day.
Youen was great and left helpful explanations and tips for us, and was very generous in allowing to come in late and leave early.
Youen was an excellent host. He made our first Airbnb experience a great one. Since Youen and his wife are foodies they were able to provide a great list of nearby restaurants and eateries. His apartment is located in one of the best NYC neighborhoods. We would definitely stay at their apartment for another stay.
This was our first Airbnb experience and we couldn't have (email hidden) and host. First of all, Youen's communication was excellent throughout the process, keeping in touch with us and leaving detailed instructions with great recommendations. Second, his studio was spacious and felt like home. Third, the location is perfect for anyone wanting to explore Manhattan as it is close to Chelsea Market, the High Line, and all major subway lines.
I would definitely stay here again! Thanks again so much Youen!
Youen's place was great for our week in New York. We had everything we needed and found the place very clean and comfortable. Above all was the location. Absolutely perfect!! Walking distance to some great areas, and ridiculously close to the subway. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a real New York experience.
This apartment was situated in a perfect setting. It was a quick walk to two subways stops, surrounded by great restaurants, and yet far enough away from all the noise of 8th Ave.
Youen was quick to respond to our inquiry and was there to greet us when we arrived.
Although we didn't use most of the amenities (since we were only in for the weekend), the apartment had everything to feel at home - great kitchen, TV, WiFi, etc.
Youen et Linda sont deux personnes très sympathiques et discrètes.
La communication avant leur séjour et pendant a été très bonne.
Merci de votre venue et à bientôt peut-être!
Friendly guest, discreet and respectful. Welcome back at any time.
Youen and his wife were very respectful guests. I would highly recommend them.
Very nice couple. Very friendly and clean
Youen and Linda stayed with us and it was wonderful. When you combine good-hearted, intelligent people with adventurous spirits - that's Youen and Linda. They were clean, responsible and just great company - very easy. Really a pleasure to host. We would highly recommend them to other Airbnb hosts.
Lovely guests. Highly recommended.
