Super laid back Actress from England. Drama free, likes to have fun when not working.
I had a wonderful time at Charlottes place. The room I had - the one in the very end - was truly an amazing and cozy one... Due to the warm weather - there was no need to use the heater in the room... The bathroom wasn't big, but it offered a big shower cabin. That's probably the reason for the waiting time in the morning, because all guests enjoyed having a shower...
The whole loft is a typical New York loft and truly an experience. You want make a real NY experience, go to SoHo, TriBeCa or East Village... I can recommend the last room and the loft for openminded people and some which don't care about a performance of some young artists in the living room... :))
I only stayed for a night and really was only there for a few hours so I can't say much. Char was a gracious host when we met up. The place is huge by SoHo standards. The room was all I needed - four walls, roof, and a bed so my recco is couched in those terms. It's a great space if you're an artsy fartsy type like me. I came home to a performance night around 11 that was ending. Great crowd and a fun way to end the night. After reading other reviews, yes, the door is loud, the street is definitely heard; if you want eat-off-the-floor quiet serenity there are other places to stay. if you (email hidden)d-in place with SoHo vibe you'd be hard pressed to do better.
A had a wonderful 1A experience at Charlotte's loft. Absolutely nothing to complain. Charlotte leaves you all the privacy you need but is around if you need a thing. Whoever complained in former feedbacks needs to understand that for SOHO NY this is a great place to stay with tons of space and bohemian art loft atmosphere compared to most very boring tiny studios in the city. Lafayette is close to China Town so you can explore a lot of different cultures or got to Midtown and enjoy a classical show. Another benefit of Charlottes loft is that you meet very friendly people at the loft, either the other guest itself or the comedians who give you a free life show in the evenings :) So having a nice chat with people is easy and you are not alone in the big Apple!

Nice location. The room is sparse but is sufficient. The loft space is really cool and some times hosts shows in the evening, which can make for awkward entrances as the door is loud and sound carries well. There are three rooms plus one for Charlotte. Communication was ok - I reached out before our arrival to figure out when we should get there and how to get keys and such and didn't hear back until the morning of and then for checking out Charlotte was out so we had to call her on what we should do. She was friendly and seemed to be flexible with things. And she has a dog too.
Charlotte's place was awesome! We had such a great stay really cool relaxed vibe and great comedy shows. She was such a lovely host, met some hilarious people staying there as well. Definitely would go back, clean, private, welcoming, and talk about location! such a beautiful part of the city.
Thanks for your hospitality Charlotte!
Read the previous one, please
It was really awesome! This place has true atmosphere of NYC with bohemian taste. If you stay, you see a lot of performances, comedy shows and so on. Charlotte is very friendly and responsive host. I stayed there for 10 days and every day enjoyed Soho, Little Italy, China Town, Greenwich village. Strongly recommended
I would recommend anyone to try and find something else.
the pace was very messy and dirty. doesn't really have regular heat, but there are little heaters in each room. the one in the bathroom is off so its cold in there. For me it's worth half the price i paid. also look a lot shabbier than on the pics. theres so much stuff everywhere the place feel cramped and unwelcoming.
charlotte was however easy to communicate with i must say.
But. I have an artist loft. and this is not that.
Charlotte's place was awesome! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to have fun NYC. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. Our host was very friendly and invited us to watch a comedy show that was going on in the apartment shorty after we arrived. We *had* plans to go out but the show was so funny, we decided to stay in for a few hours. 10/10 would stay again.
The room was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Charlotte was a very gracious and helpful host and the room was reasonably priced.
Charlotte was a fantastic guest I would highly recommend her.
