Staying at Ben's place was the best decision ever! Ben was extremely accommodating given this was a last minute booking. He was really responsive to all of my inquiries. The apartment itself was lovely! Super quaint and very comfortable for 3 people. There is a bed which can comfortably accommodate 2 people and a third couch/bed which can accommodate 1 person. There is even a desk available if you're like my friend who tends to work while on holiday. The neighbourhood is great. Tons of things to do, great places to eat, drink and shop! The apartment is also very quick walk to the subway which gives you easy access to all of Manhattan and Brooklyn. We had such a great time staying at Ben's place and would not hesitate to stay here again!
This studio was absolutely perfect for our stay. We booked super last minute and Benjamin was extremely accommodating to our early check in request. IMO this is the best location to stay in Manhattan if you are young and love good happy hour, lively people with an artsy feel and everything that the lower east side is all about! I highly recommend this studio to any couple headed to NYC!
La verdad que no fue muy buena experiencia.
El apartamento era pequeño, acorde con la descripción pero poco cuidado. Las sabanas estaban rotas.
Lo bueno es la zona, una zona con mucho ambiente, tiendas y restaurantes muy cool y fácil para moverse por la ciudad. El problema era el ruido por la noche.
El anfitrión, no ejerció como tal, fuimos recibidos por otra persona
que nos abrió el apartamento y nos dijo que para cualquier cosa teníamos que contactar con Benjamin. El tercer día de estancia el wifi no funcionaba, llamamos y enviamos mensajes al anfitrión y tardo dos días en responder. También llamamos y escribimos para la salida del apartamento, saber donde dejábamos las llaves, ya que la puerta se tenia que cerrar con llave y si podíamos salir un poco mas tarde ya que el avión salía por la tarde y nunca llamo ni respondió los mensajes.
Siempre que he alquilado apartamentos a traves de airbnb la experiencia con los anfitriones fue genial, muy cordial y siempre disponibles y dándonos consejos de la zona. en esta ocasión fue todo lo contrario.
Great location and a short walk to the FJMZ lines. Heaps of cool bars and restaurants in walking distance. Apartment is perfect size for one person or a couple. Would stay again.
The apartment was as-described. Check in was easy. Everything was clean. Neighborhood is excellent. Walking distance all over downtown and luxury hotel next door. Furnishing are quite basic but to be expected in this price range in NYC.
This place was nice and clean in a very cool neighborhood. Many of the best parts of the city are within walking distance. One thing to note though, is that it is quite small, and I was a little bit mislead by the pictures since there are two different pics of the same space, but with different furniture. I thought it would be big enough for a friend of mine to come and stay as well, but we're not close enough friends to stay quite so closely together. There is also no sink in the bathroom, so the kitchen sink is all there is. Having said all that: I would stay there again, and I would recommend it to friends as long as they are made aware of the small caveats.
Just as the listing describes! Gorgeous, old building. The three flights of stairs are not an issue unless you are going back to the apartment a few times a day, which we weren't. Location is perfect! Walking distance to East Village, Greenwich Village etc. Loads of cool bars and cafes around. Yes, it's kind of loud at night- but we enjoyed feeling a part of the action and I think you would be troubled to find a quiet location that offered the same benefits.
The shower pressure was great, and the ambient temperature was fine.
Apartment was clean but had a rustic feel as you would expect in an older building.
This listing is perfect if you want to feel like you are living like a real New Yorker!
All was great!
The apartment is exactly as you can expect from the pictures and the location is perfect for exploring the city and if you like being in the buzz of things. We would want to stay there again anytime.
The location of the apartment is perfect for young people. Full of bars and super well connected. Only tough thing was the three floors by tiny stairs with the suitcase since we were three girls.
The apartment has plenty space for three and was full equipped with towels, toilet paper etc. and clean.
Also Benjamin was able to let us in before check in time and it was no inconvenient to check out at 4 am.
I would strongly recommend.
