Irena is the wonderful host of a perfectly cozy east village haven. In an exciting and easily accessible part of town, I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a fair deal on a great studio.
My husband and I stayed in this apartment for five nights. As it was our first time in New York, it was hard to pick a neighbourhood which would suit us: we wanted a quiet place to sleep, a cosy but not too busy part of New York, a bed that would be alright and not too far from the subwaystation.
I booked Irena's apartment based on her story and the feedback other visitors had written. She responded quickly so everything was arranged quickly as well.
A couple of days before we'd arrive, she sent me an e-mail just to reconfirm our stay, which I pleased: just to be certain she was still expecting us.
Both her story and the feedback from other visitors were true. It's a small apartment but it had everything we needed. It's quiet and all you need is just a step away. It's a nice neighbourhood with lots of nice restaurants and a supermarket and subwaystation are close as well.
So yes, I would definately recommend this place if you're looking for the things described. And if we ever might come back to New York, we would like to stay here again!
the apartment is in a very quiet and pretty area, it is very convenient to the metro. The neighborhood is full of restaurants and it's nice for an evening stroll. the apartment is on the third floor with no elevator, very cute and perfect to stay for two people in ny.
Irena was very nice and helpful for everything. We loved this apartment and would recommend it.
The apartment looked exactly like on the pictures Irena uploaded. Everything was well prepared by her. First the arrangement was easily made and in NYC the handover of the keys was very convenient.
The apartment itself was in good condition and it is very well-situated so we could reach every destination easily.
If you're not expecting a 5-star apartment you will definetly be satisfied with this cozy place.
I would definetly come here again. I had a wonderful time!
Thank you very much.
Irena's place has been perfect for my first time in New York City! Great location, very near to two subway's lines. Clean and cosy apartment: it felt like home straight away.
Irena was so helpful and removed all my doubts, also providing very good tips about things to see or restaurants, and, what's more, she's incredibly quick to answer.
I would definitely stay here again.
Everything went well. The kitchen is well equipped, the place is clean, silent and the heating works just fine. It's near 2 different lines of the subway and located at an exciting bit of east village. The apart is at the 4th floor of a building without an elevator, so it's for people with a good physical condition.
Irena's place is small and cozy, but, as the appartment is a bit small and Irena's things are there, you'd better not bring too much luggage.
We would like to mention too how attentive and gentle Irena has been to us
in clarifying all our pre-arrival doubts and even receiving a mail package
that arrived there before us. She's also unbelievably quick in answering
emails and left directions and suggestions for us with things to do aroung
her place. Staying there was a great opportunity to get closer to
experiencing NYC as someone who lives there, and not as a tourist.
It was a nice stay and I would definitely return! Thanks Irena!
Irena was easy to contact and provided a convenient check in/out process. Her apartment is very clean, clutter free and has a central location. I would stay at this apartment again.
The perfect little apartment in a fantastic location in East Village. Irena was very helpful, both before and during our stay (she left an amazing list of tips on places to eat/drink/go etc., which we consulted a lot!). It felt like home straight away. Great system with the key and overall very smooth and enjoyable air b&b experience. Thank you Irena!
We' ve stayed in Irena's apartment for five days and we liked it a lot.The flat is clean, has the right size and is well (email hidden)e East village is (email hidden)ly quarter in Manhattan. Irena was really helpful and quick to answer. We told her internet connection was important for us to have during our stay and despite she had some issue with it provvided to make it work before our stay. She left us a list with restaurants, bars, coffee joints of the niborhood. I would recommend this place and I would stay here if back to NY city. Thanks Irena.
Very nice, well-located apartment in a cool neighborhood packed with bars, cafes, and restaurants. It was our first time to NYC and we were very impressed with our experience. Check-in/out was very easy and flexible, which was ideal as we wanted to maximize our time without having to worry about where we would keep our luggage, etc. Irena was very helpful with any questions, and leaves in the apartment loads of information about the city and the neighborhood. Would happily stay here again!
Irena and her friends are so friendy and polite. They are welcome to our apartment NIKO at any time.
I've stayed at Irena's for extended periods of time, not just a couple days, and its always extremely comfortable. I like to save money on eating out so I usually go to one of the nearby markets (Whole Foods is 3 blocks away!) and make meals in her full sized kitchen. Irena has all the amenities you could ever need: full kitchen, large refrigerator, full size tub, and comfortable bed. The apartment is extremely clean, charming, quiet, and is accessible to any part of the city. If you are visiting NYC, you should definitely stay in this cozy, centrally-located apartment.
I've stayed at Irena's on several occasions because it's in an incredible location. It's in the heart of the East Village, walking distance to awesome bars, cool eateries and a buzzing night life. Her apartment faces the back of the building, so it's removed from any street noise (I enjoy uninterrupted sleep!). It's a warm, welcoming and very comfortable apartment. I'd actually like to take her bed home with me, it's so comfortable! Definitely a good choice if you're looking for a charming, centrally located and quiet stay.
I have stayed at Irena's place on several occassions and find her place to be impeccably clean and organized. Her apartment looks great and is in a really accesible and fun part of the city.
