SHOPPING GALORE IN SOHO! EVERYTHING WITHIN A 2-MINUTE WALK.
Ask any native NY'er and they will tell you. Soho (for shopping) / Little Italy (for eating) is in the heart of it all. Next to Chinatown, close to the trains... it's perfect.
I have a great two-bedroom (real bedrooms each with window) that was recently renovated top to bottom. All new floors, walls, appliances, etc.
Located next to Mulberry Street, near Chinatown and Little Italy, as well as Soho. Safe and in the heart of everything!
Beautiful apartment, two real bedrooms, each with queen-size bed and down comforters... living room with small eat-in cafe table, as well as a leather loveseat and chair. Comfortable, quaint, VERY CLEAN, and the perfect location to see the city.
I am a native New Yorker and so have a lot of information about fun and inexpensive things you can do in NYC.
Lastly, I CAN GET DISCOUNT TICKETS FOR SOME BROADWAY, OFF-BROADWAY and JAZZ AND/OR COMEDY CLUBS! How much of a discount!?!? At least 50-70% off... average price for Broadway 40-50$ and 15-20 for Off Broadway! (Not all shows ... NEVER Lion King, Book of Mormon. I haven't even seen them yet!!)
Anyway... feel free to ask any questions and I will get back to you asap.
Thanks and take care :)

Apartment is in a great location - close to the subway, shopping and walking distance to great restaurants. We fit four guest snuggly. If you are looking for somewhere to crash for a few days in NYC this place is great.
Great apartment for us. In the middle of a great neighborhood and close to trains for everything else. Roberto was great and made sure we were comfortable.
Mike made our trip better than it could have been any other way. His apartment was spotless, secure and perfectly located for us. The two bedrooms were around a hall from each other so we had complete privacy - something that was important to us. We loved the outdoor markets and the easy walk to The Tenement Museum and charming lower east side restaurants. We also walked to the Q the evening we went to see a Broadway show.
Before we arrived, he made sure we had our keys (via mail) so there was no waiting on anyone. He provided the most thorough information about the neighborhood I have ever seen, setting the bar and inspiring me to do the same for my guests. I would definetly recommend it!
Our feeling after our experience at Roberto's place is mixed. On the good side, the flat was incredibly located and that is the main pro argument in favor. It was also clean and nothing to criticate there. The two sleepingroom were also fine and we felt quiet homy and slept very well.
In the other and, the arrival was cahotic due to Roberto's bad organization. Indeed, as demanded, we texted him when we arrived at the airport. He tested back that the keys for the app were under the mat. When we arrived at the app, there were no mat and a buildingdoor prohibiting us to go inside the building. As someone was coming out we managed to get inside. 4 levels higher we saw that there were no keys or matress affront of the app's door. We were stuck there. So I called Roberto that first asked me to get in a taxi to get the keys, after trying giving me blurry explanations to how he would have forget that there was no mat and a building door in his "own flat". After I asked him to come instade of me going, we waited 15mins and finely got the keys.
As said earlier, the flat was cleen and nice but nothing fancy. it's also very poorly equipped for more than 2 people. Only one small high table and to bar chairs to eat and a coutch. One other pretty annoying thing was the VERY SLOW INTERNET quasi useless. Despite the many messages I sent to Roberto, the problem wasn't fixed during our stay and did not seems to concern him at all. So if I had to make a list I would say:
Size ok (for 2, 3 Max people)
Internet (usefull to plan the day, see what is going on etc.)
Welcoming (we saw him 10 sec)
No real table if 3 people want to eat there
Kitchen furnishing,Only one mug for coffee !
Cleeness of the water glasses.
PLEASE READ MY OTHER REVIEWS.. as you will see I run a great place with great services. Not sure how to respond as the comments are a bit outlandish. .....................................................................................................................
1. I provide a cell phone for all guests to use. Has FREE INTERNET. FREE MAPS. FREE CALLS IN US. Yet these guests never called me to say the internet was not working properly. ....................................................................................................................2. REAL TWO BEDROOM with QUEEN SIZE BEDS. Easily fits four people. ....................................................................................................................3. My internet works fine and fast. ...................................................................................................................
Aribnb is alive and well NYC. great pad. great location. real courteous host.
If you want to be near to the happening Soho, and the vibrant Little Italy and Chinatown, this apartment is a top spot. Comfortable, spacious for two, do-able for four. Host was friendly and efficient, no fuss. Can totally recommend it.
We had a wonderful time at the apartment. It was greatly located in Little Italy/Soho, very close to several metro stations and metro lines (green, yellow and orange – the closest one, just 3 blocks away), and in a safe neighbourhood (we always came back past midnight and always felt very safe).
The apartment is located on the 4th floor without elevator, so be in good shape! But once you’re there, it feels like home! The kitchen is very big with everything you need, the living room is small but nice with a sofa and big TV screen, the bathroom is small but very functional and the 2 bedrooms were great. Everything was very clean, with fresh towels waiting for us on the beds. It was extremely cold (20s) when we were there and we greatly appreciated the warm apartment. As some other reviews said, it was a little noisy at night so I would recommend bringing earplugs but it is New York so it’s like this everywhere!
Roberto also goes the extra mile to make his guests happy: he met with us in the city to give us the keys, even if we came in quite late; in the apartment we found free wifi, a smartphone with a data connection we could use, and a computer. Also, he found discount tickets for a Broadway show for us and gave us valuable tips and advices for our visit. He was always very responsive and helpful by text/email.
There are also a lot of nice restaurants around.
We could not be happier to have found this apartment and we will definitely hope to stay there next time we are in the city.
I just got back from a trip with 4 of my girlfriends in NYC. We stayed at Robertos awesome pad. It was all we were hoping for.
The location was amazing, we were able to walk everywhere!
The apartment itself was clean and everything was in working order. It was an added bonus to have use of the cell phone that had data so we could look up maps and other things whenever we needed.
The sheets and towels were fresh and the washroom was very clean. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Roberto Mike Mercado is a realyable landlord, no problem with keys and generous when checking out by let us have our luggage in the apartrment to 3 o clock. Easy to contact by phone and mail.
However, in our point of view the kitchen is a very important part ofthe vacation and there where repearment in the apartment so we have no natural gaz for the stow witch was replaced by a small electric 1 plate. Miss also a table and chairs for make it possible to have a nice breakfast or a dinner. Can´t see the point of the huge TV- set in the room. The linen in bed and the frotté towels was not in our taste, the towels did not take the water
and the bed was noisy. we can also discuss the cleaning.
Otherwise everything was OK.
My sister and I were looking for a place with two bedrooms to stay during our trip to NYC. We choose this place because it:
a) had great reviews
b) a good location
c) was competitively priced
The area was perfect, great Asian food all around and walking distance to the shopping on Broadway. Soho is a fantastic place explore.
The apartment was clean and very comfortable. During the time of our visit there has recently been some minor repair works to the piping but the owners had done a good job in covering the exposed wall.
If you're a light sleeper then you should be warned that there is some substantial street noise from outside. However, I think you'd be hard pushed to find anywhere this central without street noise.
The apartment was very secure and the area safe.
Getting the keys was easy and the hosts were very accommodating.
