We were very happy to stay at Barak and Hagar’s apt for a week. We did not meet them personally, but had good and regular e-mail contact. The apt is as described and as you can see in the photos. It was big enough for our family of 3. The building is old, but the apt was clean and has a friendly atmosphere. The double bed was excellent. Our son (10 yrs) slept on the sofa for 5 nights and had no complaints. There were big soft towels, cleans sheets (and extra in the cupboard). Small bathroom with old but nice big bath/shower. Big fridge, coffee machine, microwave, toaster, hairdryer, tv, wifi, etc. The elevator was out of order when we came, but working when we left.
Ludlowstreet is noisy, especially in the weekend (earplugs!). We had the windows open for fresh air, but you could also put the airco on. Sunday and Monday were the quietest days.
Great neighbourhood with lots of nice bars and restaurants. Check out the Essex Food Market, Corner Grocers on Rivington/Orchard and Katz's deli, etc.
The subway is only 2 blocks away (Delancey and Essex) with good connections for going up- or downtown.
Everything was perfect! It's just like the pictures. the bed and the air bed are very comfortable. the Couch is great after a long day in Manhattan, just right to "come down". Check in and check out easy and fast. Barak was always approachable for us with questions, he helped immediately. it was a nice vacation, we like to come back!
Vi følte os velkomne. Barak skrev til os (email hidden) om alt var OK. Kom med forslag til oplevelser på en regnvejrsdag mm.
Barak was very accommodating and prompt to respond to questions. I requested a very early check-in which he was able to accommodate. The apartment is what you would expect from an older New York apartment and was clean.
Very good experience. Apartment as expected. Noisy at weekend but again that was as expected.
Barak was very helpful and made the whole process very easy. He also checked in via AirBnB to make sure everything was comfortable for us.
The location is great--around the corner from the train line, adjacent to numerous bars, restaurants, delis, and cafes. The apartment itself was very comfortable, and quite large for the city. The place is very clean and sun-filled in the mornings. Of course, the apartment is older, so don't expect everything to be shiny and new. But that is what to expect in that neighborhood, and given the age, the apartment was in good shape.
We had a great stay in NYC in no small part due to Barak's place.
Previously I would like to say again thank you to Barak & Hagard for their hospitality. We are meet only with Hagard, she was very helpful, Barak answered to our email extremely fast.
About apartment. It’s very clean, spacious kitchen equipped all necessary tools (refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker etc); wi-fi was fast and work good; two rooms are clean, bed and big sofa were very comfortable, and we slept very well.
Apartment is situated in the awesome place. Near the apartments a lot of good restaurants, clubs and bars (famous Katz Deli in two blocks from the house), coffee shops (Mud coffee, Blank with Intelligetsia coffee etc), in three blocks you’ll find Whole foods, and good wine shops. Barak’s apartment place in perfect spot for walking tours, but it's close to metro station too.
Only one thing could be not comfortable for traveler, on weekends nights a little bit noisy on the street. But it doesn't worry us.
Finally, if you love music, especially "The Beastie Boys". You should know, you can find the building where place Barak’s apartment on the cover "Paul's boutique" :)
I’m strongly recommend Barak to all. And I will be happy to return here again and again.
Great location and super helpful hosts. Very hospitable, kind, and ready to help with anything.
Barak was a good host, who responded all our questions before and during our time in NYC. The apartment is good for three and there are all what do you need for a week stay. The area was perfect with all the nice restaurants and bars, but it could be noisy during the weekends. Other areas of NYC was really easy to reach up with subways and taxis.
We had a great time at this apartment. What a cool little area of NYC to be in. Many cafe's, good restaurants and a fantastic marketplace nearby. Everything we wanted within a couple of blocks.
The apartment was a perfect size for the 3 of us and has a comfy bed and good kitchen. Subway 2 blocks away and lively walks around East Village, Little Italy, Soho etc.
Our kind of place!
Barak and his wife were great guest and also their friends and it was nice to have little ones in the house again. I would welcome them back anytime. Hope to see them soon.
Barak e sua moglie Hagar hanno visitato scelto il mio studio per la loro visita a Firenze nella loro Luna di Miele in giro per l'Italia. Sono due giovani gentili, simpatici e molto attenti alla cultura Italiana. Alla loro partenza tutto era in ordine e (website hidden) raccomando vivamente a tutti i proprietari.
