My husband and I arrived for a 2 week stay at Alan's home. We already knew we were in for lovely accommodation from the pictures, but it was better than expected.
The space feels huge (I lost my husband a few times) and very tastefully decorated. Alan was mindful that some of his art may not be to our tastes, but we found it interesting.
His kitchen is a dream to cook in and you could melt into the couch it's so comfortable.
The area is second to none. The nearest subway is not a far walk and there are bus stops everywhere, but to be honest we walked mostly. We spoke to quite a few native East Villagers and they all said that they themselves never really leave the area, because everything they need is there. After 2 weeks we knew exactly what they meant. The location is second to none.
When booking I was a little concerned about the stairs up with no elevator but I shouldn't have worried at all. After the first few days I didn't even notice it.
As for Alan himself. From the moment I contacted him back in Dec he replied promptly and politely (even with the time difference between NY and London). While we were at his home he was on holiday himself but still managed to reply to emails I sent. He gave us space but was at hand if needed. He conducted the transaction very professionally but was equally personable. We didn't feel like we were staying in a museum, but of course we were mindful it was his home.
If you're looking for a beautiful place to stay in a fantastic location, then look no further. I couldn't recommend it more highly. We miss it already and look forward to heading back.
We can only confirm what all the previous guests have said about Alan and his apartment. As first-time Airbnb users, we were a little nervous, but our stay really could not have been any better! His place is 100% as advertised, really big for NYC standards and although we didn't take full advantage of all the amenities it was still nice to have the theoretical option (hello treadmill). We already knew the East Village pretty well from previous stays in NYC and Alan's place is perfectly located if you want to feel less like a tourist and more like a local in NYC! There's lots and lots of nice bars, restaurant and cafés around and the subway also isn't too far in case you do want to explore NYC a bit further. We weren't though and really didn't mind that much. Alan was there to let us in & and show us around the place and really explained everything in detail. And as a welcoming gift, he even left us a bottle of champagne with a lovely note in the fridge! All in all, we would definitely recommend Alan and his apartment in a heartbeat to anyone looking for accommodation in NYC!
Beautiful and clean apartment! Would stay here again.
I cannot recommend this listing more highly. The apartment itself is magnificent and the pictures don't do it justice. It's huge and well appointed. Most importantly, Alan, our host, was diligent and attentive beyond any reasonable expectation. We had a wonderful time staying here and intend to stay again. Thank you, Alan!
Beautiful apartment, perfect host.
Alan is a great host. Super responsive and considerate. We really enjoyed our stay. Would book this apt again on our next trip.
Alan's apartment is amazing and is even better than the photos. It has everything one needs and more. It is beautifully furnished, so spacious and well laid out. Alan has thought of everything from lovely fresh towels to a kitchen stocked with countless items available for you to use. I slept so well in a most comfortable bed and it is relatively quiet for NYC.
The apartment is in a great neighbourhood. There are terrific restaurants, & bars, a variety of supermarkets and cool boutiques on your doorstep. All in walking distance.
Alan is a terrific host. Alan met us on arrival and carried my bag up 5 flights of stairs! He carefully ran through everything about the apartment and how the various equipment operates etc. He was available during our stay should we need help with anything. It was a nice surprise and kind gesture to find a bottle of champagne chilled in the fridge which Alan had left for us on our arrival.
I would definitely stay at Alan's on my next visit to NYC and recommend it highly. Thank you Alan we had the best stay!!
I can't say enough about how AMAZING our stay at East Village Loft was. I was looking for a beautiful space in the city to stay while celebrating my 30th birthday and this knocked it out of the park. Allen was so accommodating and helpful; leaving us with great information about where to go in the city and how to get around. His fully equipped kitchen was fantastic for us (as we are all foodies) and were able to cook a beautiful dinner and brunch with ease. He really didn't skip any detail when preparing his loft for guests-fresh towels and sheets (East Village Loft was so clean and comfortable) and clear instructions for operating the laundry and television system. We didn't want to leave! If you're looking for a place in the city...this is where you need to stay! I'm already looking for an excuse to go back!
The place was beautiful, incredibly comfortable and had everything you could need. Alan was easy to communicate with, helpful and generous. It was easy to get to the subway and get around Manhattan but also a nice area to just wander.
We would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again.
We really loved our stay at the East Village Loft. The apartment is even better in real life than it looks in the photos and the quality of the furnishings was great. Alan was a fantastic host and was really considerate with details such as leaving a compendium for the apartment and a list of eating recommendations. The neighbourhood around Alphabet City has a really nice vibe - very convenient, friendly, safe and relatively quite, but doesn't feel overly touristy and has a great range of food and good coffee (thank you Ninth St Espresso!) close by. We would most definitely love to stay here again!
