Get a taste of the real downtown New York! Stay in a sun-drenched 1 bedroom apartment in elevator building, in the heart of the East Village. You'd get the whole place to yourself. This is NOT a share.
Newer elevator building, and shared yard to enjoy your morning coffee and paper. Explore all the life and culture in Alphabet City within walking distance. The neighborhood is bustling with hip cafes, restaurants, shops and bars, but the apartment is on a quiet block filled with public gardens. Buses run along every avenue, or walk to the 2nd Avenue F train in 10 minutes. Also within walking distance to Lower East Side, Soho, NYU area.
Apartment has fully equipped kitchen, WiFi connection, TV (only basic channels, no cable), DVD player and stereo. Clean linens and towels provided. Couch pulls out to be a full-size futon.
The closet will be locked during your stay, but there are numerous hangers to hang your clothes on the exposed side of the closet door.
Why stay in a hotel when you can live like a downtown New Yorker during your stay?
**For a more economical solution, I can also rent the apartment without the bedroom for $150/night (bedroom will be locked). The futon will then be your bed, which is still quite comfortable, but ideally for just one person.
All amenities of the apartment, with the exception of the closet in the bedroom.
Although not staying near the apartment while guests have rented it, I am always readily available via phone and internet.
No shoes worn inside the apartment please! This ensures very clean floors for all. No smoking inside the apartment. You can do so in the shared backyard on the ground floor though!
Wen-Ting was a great host. She provided us with detailed instructions for making our way from the airport to the appt and met us with the keys. She also left us with excellent recommendations of places to eat in and around alphabet city - essential as there is just too much to choose!
The apartment is nice and clean and the perfect size for two people. It's in a good location for access to bars and food.
Overall a fab host in a fab apartment in a fab city!
Wen-Ting was such an amazing host and made our New York stay a great one. The apartmemt was exactly as described and in a really quiet neighborhood - good sleeps every one of our 9 nights. Wen-Ting really went over and above to make sure we had all the information we required and was always available to give us brilliant local insights. Thank-you so much, we could not have asked for a nicer person to deal with. We would defo stay at Wen-Ting's again. You are the best!
Great place to stay! Right near the centre of East Village, great shops, friendly people and good restaurants. Though not very close to a subway(15-20min walk), the bus stops right nearby and will take you there in a tick. Wen-Ting is a fabulous host. The flat is cosy and as shown in the pics. No hidden surprises the pictures are literally like for like. Will book the same if I come to New York again!!!
Wen-Ting is a great host, friendly staff, available. She had much patience with my questions and needs . His recommendations were precious and accurate. The apartment is very bright, spacious and airy. Very nice to stay in this home.
Staying at Wen-Ting's place was a real pleasure. Even though we never met her and got the keys to the apartment from a friend of hers, we never felt left out in the cold because she's easy to communicate and very responsive. She provided us with a guide to nearby restaurants (we loved every one of them), supermarkets, etc. This is a great neightborhood with lots of activity going on at all times -each and every street is so alive-, so the flat is ideal for a genuine NY experience. This is a very quiet building with warm neighbors, and the elevator is a huge plus. The bed might be a bit small for a couple, but apart from that, it was a perfect overall stay.
Wen-Ting was very helpful and kind in all our contacts. The apartment is very nice, clean and well lit. It has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with a good shower, and good space in the living room and the bedroom. There are many bars and restaurants on the neighborhood, so you can end your day somewhere near the apartment.

Hi! I'm a video editor freelancing in NYC. In between jobs, I like to leave town and explore new places. When I'm away, hopefully my home can be yours.
