My brother and I stayed at this apartment for a total of 9 days and had a flawless experience. The place was very clean and even had several supplies such as bathroom toiletries, kitchen appliances, food, etc. The host greeted us at the apt with food and cold beer! It was a nice touch knowing the long trip we had just had, along with the hot, humid weather we had to deal with! Our host also brought a very fun and positive energy to our trip. The apt is nestled in a very happening area of east village and has a long opening hallway allowing it to be very quiet in a loud city. Right around the corner are several quick pizzerias, bars, restaurants, etc. You will not be bored in this area. Our host gave us many helpful ideas about how to experience the city. The apt is also a short 8-10 min walk away from the L line subway bringing you to west manhattan or Brooklyn and everything in between that. It was a very convenient location for most of what we wanted to do in manhattan! I recommend going to El Camion Cantina for brunch and breakfast after long nights in the city on Ave A, very close to the apt. I also recommend hitting up Beauty & Essex for a more upscale and luxurious dinner. I would definitely recommend this apt and host for a trip to manhattan.
