Long time resident on a prime block in the East Village.
Attention please all users on Airbnb! This apartment has been canceled by the host on the eve of my entry. Important to know that he did not answer my emails asking you to confirm the reservation. I was in a very difficult situation to get hosting. Suggested another apartment but completely unknown. I think that should not be the first time that this happens. Terrible, horrible!
I would urge all Airbnb users to exercise extreme caution if thinking of booking this apartment in the East Village. Our accommodation was cancelled 10 minutes before our scheduled arrival in New York. This left us in an unbelievably difficult position, and without the help of the driver of the car we had booked (and the use of his smartphone/internet), we would have really struggled to find a place to stay at 2030 at night. Not the best first experience on Airbnb. The kindness and accommodating nature of the people of New York ensured we still had a great stay despite this major mishap.
The host did not contact us as required for cancellations and I only got a text message from Airbnb at the baggage collection at JFK. Airbnb, in fairness, after some email persuasion, have been very kind.
Our stay at Iver's apartment was awesome. The apartment is very comfortable, with a great localization and a good shower. Iver was in the apartment when we arrived, so it all worked just as we expected. Surely, we do recommend.
This place was just perfect for us - somewhere to crash after our hectic adventures in the city. Being in the heart of East Village, the street came alive every night, especially Friday and Saturday. And there's no shortage of exotic food nearby to try out. The apartment was just as expected and Iver was a wonderful host who showed us the place and left us in peace for the rest of the week. We'd go back again in a heartbeat! A really positive first-time AirBnB experience :)
Amazing appartment right in the heart of Manhattan.
Thanks Iver for my first AirBnB experience. Couldn't have been more smooth and easy. Was waiting already when we got there and had left the keys in the appartment....very clean and nice. Can just recommend it !
All the best to you Iver
We rented Ivers studio during our one week holidays in NYC in September and we really enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean. The size of the apartment is perfect for a couple, the bed is comfortable, the small kitchen has all the facilities to prepare breakfast in the morning and the internet connection worked perfectly. It was a nice place to come home and have a rest after a busy day in the city. We also liked the neighborhood with its bars and restaurants with food from all over the world.
As previous guests already mentioned it can be a little bit noisy at night, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. So, be prepared and bring your ear plugs!
We would definitely come back next time we will travel to New York!
We had a great time in NYC at Iver's place. The location is great, the apartment is clean and convenient, not too noisy for New York, Iver was a great host, everything was as written on the Air BNB website. Additionally, Iver was very accommodating concerning check-in time. We strongly recommend this place.
Great apartment right in the heart of the East Village action. It's a great base to explore the city, with multiple transport options on your doorstep, and a great neighbourhood to come home to at night. Apartment was as described, and Iver was easy to deal with and an accommodating host. Thanks Iver, we love New York :)
Iver's place is perfect to enjoy East Village and NYC: strategic position in the heart of village, closed to the underground and you also can walk to Soho, West Village, Union Square, Flatiron District, Chelsea!
As I am a single, and I was in my own, I don't think there was too much noise from the street: enjoyed night and day both!!
The space in the studio is truly large and comfortable, nice also for 2 people (I was in my own).
The toilet is a bit old, but guess that's the East Village guys!
Enjoyed a lot to stay there, thank you Iver!
Iver was very accommodating in our late arrival due to delayed travel- the apartment was much roomier than it appeared in the photos and was very clean. The location is fantastic, you're minutes away from everything in St. Mark's and the Astor Place subway stop. I will definitely stay here again.
