I cam to NY for a graduate school interview during the peak of the windy deep freeze that is gripping the Big Apple. I showed up at Mark's house wanting a nice warm oasis from the freezing cold and I got it! His apartment is cozy, but not cramped. The room you get is perfect for laying out and organize any materials you're working with if, like me, you're prepping a portfolio.
The kitchen is tiny, but who cares when you can find a meal from dozens of options right outside?
Mark was very nice. He unfortunately fell ill during my time there. Not wanting to pass what he had along to me, he kindly maintained his distance in the tiny space and made sure to cover his mouth when coughing or sneezing. I didn't get sick, so thank you Mark!
Thank you! Sorry I was under the weather.
I am well on the road to recovery.
God bless the antibiotic :-)
Mark was a very kind and accommodating host. I got everything that I would have gotten from a hotel and then some, all for a very good price. The apartment was clean, organized, and I was impressed by the use of space-saving elements. As a first time Airbnb user, I can say that this experience makes me feel confident about using the service during my travels in the future.
Marks a wonderful and friendly guy! The location is perfect and the bed is super warm and comfortable. Couldn't ask for more during my trip in NY
Had a lovely stay at Mark's! The appartment is cosy and close to everything. This is for the true New York experiance :)
The apartment, host and surrounding area offers everything you could need to enjoy a stay in Nyc. The great location means areas of interest in the five boroughs are easily accessible. All the things you could need for a short stay in the city were provided in a clean, simple and efficient manner and any issues can be dealt with the cooperative host.
Overall great experience! Mark was very welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed. 11/10.
Mark is very friendly and was extremely flexible with my check-in time. I slept like a baby in Mark's apartment and would stay there again.
If you're looking for an authentic East Village NYC experience, I would highly recommend staying here. Mark is a wonderful host and the apartment is clean and well-maintained. I don't have a negative thing to say about my stay, everything was great!
Staying in this apartment was an amazing experience. It's perfectly located and let me experience NYC just like a local. At the heart of the East Village, it's close to everything: attractions, amazing restaurants, entertainment venues. I barely used the subway, all done by walking. Equally important, the apt is brilliantly designed, which immediately made me feel very comfortable. Mark hospitality was really great. Do yourself a favor and stay here in your next trip to the City.
Awesome location. Apartment is very cosy. Loft bed was fun but no suitable for elder. Mark was fantastic host.
Thanks for the review.
There is the option available of a floor bed for those choosing not to use the loft bed.
Mark is social and great around the house. Thanks.
Mark is a great guy. Would definitely be happy to host again!
Great guest, left the apartment very clean. Highly recommend hosting to anyone.
Mark was an awesome Guest & he definitely left as friends! We had many enjoyable conversations, he was very polite, clean, quiet, respectful and it was just sad to see him go. Definitely would welcome him back anytime, and highly recommend to other good Airbnb hosts. A 5 stars Guest. Hope to see you soon again!
Mark is a great guest, very chill and quiet. We didn't see each other but once, but he communicates well and hopefully he will be back again.
Mark is awesome!!! Great guest. Good conversations and very polite. Hope he comes back. Actually, wish he had more time: thats how awesome he is!!!
Mark was a funny and social guest. I enjoyed his stay. Hope you are feeling better and not under the weather anymore.
Still ill I'm afraid. Thanks for asking.
Mark is an Awesome guest. Very quiet, very friendly and i have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone in the community that he request their hosting him. Personally , we would not hesitate in hosting him again.
Mark was an amazing guest! He was great to talk to AND he did my dishes! He might be my favorite person ever. I would absolutely have him back :)
Mark was a great guest. He stayed with us for one night, but we would have gladly hosted him for longer. Quiet, polite and courteous, would gladly host again.
Finally, I've been trying to write a reference for this fabulous man for ages now! We met on a film shoot and you can always tell if you're going to stay friends with someone by the way you get along on a film set. He is a wonderful friend and always has something interesting to say. He's honest, kind and always a delight to be around. I just hate saying our farewells every time we must. I haven't grown tired of him yet! He is a charm and a very fun person. He's always ready to go have a great time and show people (especially travelers and guests he already treats so well) what he can of NYC and it's culture. Airbnb and just me myself are lucky that such a great guy exists. Also his apartment is awesome. I would know. I live in NYC!
Mark is a delightful young man, very fun, helpful, creative, He is involved with film making, and the restaurant world. I would highly recommend him as a host or guest
Mark's Apartment on !st Avenue in East Village is a gem. He has made it so homely yet utterly functional. Frank Lloyd Wright would be proud of it! It is very well located near subway,loads of restaurants,vibrant neighborhood.You will find Mark friendly and honest to deal with. Enjoy!
To me, services like Airbnb and (website hidden) are some of the best outcomes of our internet age. They connect people, communities, and cultures in amazing ways and give incredible opportunities for the best kind of human experiences. Airbnb is built on the trust, positivity, optimism and enthusiasm of the people who choose to be a part of it, and Mark is a perfect example of this. Mark is a real citizen of the world and a great traveller. He's kind, respectful and I'm sure would be a perfect guest in anyone's home.
He's also a great host. Mark very graciously lent us his place in NYC for a 10 day visit in 2011, and couldn't have been more accommodating or generous.
I couldn't recommend Mark more highly.
