I love NY
I recently stayed at Jo's apartment with a friend. The apartment was just as Jo had described. Nice and roomy and everything you would want. The area was fantastic, we didn't visit the same bar or restaurant twice - so many within walking distance. Close to transport and a nice 20 minute walk to Soho which was great. The top floor was a bit of a challenge with the suitcases, but once you were in, it was fine. We found the stairs great exercise. The unit was lovely and light and very (website hidden) was a pleasure to deal with - we would definitely stay there again.
The apartment is large and well appointed. It was clean and had everything to make our stay enjoyable. It was close to subways and transportation. We liked the vibe of the Lower East Side and Litlle Italy. Joanna was easy to communicate with and we had no problem moving in or out.
L'appartement est situé dans un quartier très agréable à vivre, de nombreux cafés, restaurants et petites boutiques se trouvent à proximité, c'est un endroit très vivant et à taille humaine.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans l'appartement de Joanna, on se sent rapidement à l'aise, les photos sont représentatives du lieu, Après de longues et éreintantes promenades dans New York,retrouver un petit nid douillet est un plus.
La décoration est soignée et cosy, chose très appréciable, l'appartement est très propre et vraiment confortable!!
Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer notre hôte,mais à notre arrivée une de ses amies était là pour nous accueillir de façon très sympathique
Tout le long de notre séjour nous sommes restés en contact avec Joanna par mail, elle a répondu à toutes nos sollicitations de façon très rapide, nous donnant en prime des petits conseils shopping pour ma fille de 21 ans.
En bref, un appartement très bien et une hôte très disponible.Nous le conseillons vivement à tous ceux qui veulent passer un super séjour sans mauvaise surprise.
I stayed in the apartment for 2 months over the summer.
Check in was very easy, Joanna was very accomodating to when I needed to check in and provided me with keys and gave me an overview of the apartment.
Amentities- everything you could need was there, towels, plates, toaster, extra sheets, dvd player. I really did not need to buy many extras. There was even essential food items like salt, pepper, ect so if you needed to cook that was all there (this may vary depending the the stay though). The apartment was very clean and I never had any problems. Joanna even asked if we needed a new air conditioner since it was so hot during our stay. We never had a problem with the AC and the two window units worked very well and pretty quickly.
The apartment is on the 4th floor of a walk up but it was not very bad at all. For laundry- there is a really cheap place around the corner that will do it for (website hidden)- there is only very basic cable but I was pretty busy so it did not really matter. The beds were pretty comfortable, I put a extra blanket under the bed to make it a little more fluffy but it is nothing to stress about. There was also a ton of hangers which was nice.
The building is right across from a school and is relatively quiet for NYC honestly. Around the corner there are a ton of restaurants (my favorite is this awesome mexican place Barrio Chino). The F train is a block away also. If you like to run, the Williamsburg bridge is like 5 blocks away and is a great work out. A lot of my favorite bars and shopping are on ludlow or a 10 minute walk so it is a really great location.
Overall- my roommate and I had a wonderful stay and it was very easy to work with Joanna. If we ever needed anything, she was always willing to help. I would definitely recommend this apartment in the future.Great place to stay!
Joanna's apartment was just as the pictures show. It was spacious & clean with 2 very comfortable beds.
There was a lot of closet space & shelves for our belongings.
I love the area- lots of great cafe's & shops.
My colleague & I were very comfortable & would gladly recommend Joanna's place to others.
Joanna was very thorough in her communication & I felt would be available very quickly if needed- however we didn't need anything whilst there.
I had an amazing 3 weeks at Joanna's apartment.
Really central to the Lower East Side - fantastic cafes, restaurants and bars all within a hop, skip and a jump of the apartment. Also only a few minutes walk to the subway which can get you uptown or to Brooklyn relatively easy.
If you're not sure where to stay in NYC - this is the place for you! A 15 minute walk gets you to Soho, Little Italy, Nolita & Chinatown.
Similar to the other reviews, note that there are 4 flights of stairs & no elevator, however don't let that worry you.
It was still fairly cold in NYC however there were no issues at all with the heating.
You do get a little street noise, but its NYC after all!
Joanna was a wonderful host and I had no problems at all. I did leave a jacket behind but Joanna was able to ship it to me without any stress or troubles.
Overall, it was great to come back to the apartment after a busy day out and about. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Joanna's apartment to family and friends and of course anyone reading this!
The apartment was great! It was even better than pictured. For such a long stay, we were really able to feel at home here. The neighborhood was very friendly and easily accessible!
This is a wonderful apartment. The apartment is in a fantastic location - the Lower East Side if very accessible by public transport - with a subway station 2 blocks away that till take you right into midtown and anywhere else you want to go. Around in the area there are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants to keep you occupied without even having to leave the area - Bar 169 and Dudley's to name a few. Great coffee shops right around the corner too. The apartment itself is in good condition. It very easily fit our four guests - with generous double beds and plenty of sitting room in the living room. The bathroom and kitchen are nice and large (for New York) as well. The heating isnt amazing - it's controlled by the building so we found it a little chilly for our liking. Ended up just putting on more blankets and jumpers. The heating in one of the bedrooms doesn't seem to work. The apartment is located on the top floor of an apartment block that doesn't have an elevator - so be prepared to carry your luggage up 7 flights of stairs when you first arrive.
Small cons aside, this is a great apartment in a great location in New York and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the city.
I had a great stay at Joanna's place, it was exactly as advertised and no problem getting the keys.
Nice apartment in a great location, Joanna was very helpful and made our stay easier for us. Would recommend staying here if you're looking for a cool place to stay in the Lower East Side.
Wonderful guests, very sweet and communicative. They were clean and tidy and a pleasure to have hosted in my home. I would definitely host them again anytime!
Thanks for coming. You are great person!
