Our stayed had to be divided between this apartment and the other one Thom owns ( p354370) because neither apartment were available for 2 weeks straight. We stay 1 week on each apartment because I really wanted to stay at Thom's place, he got the best reviews out there! Thom was very nice to work with me. This place is very different from the p354370, this one is much bigger, more space everywhere, I would even say more luxury. The towels were bigger too, what I loved. The bathroom was huge, the studio style bedroom and TV room together was nice and large. But this studio is really really nice, its exactly like the pictures, but larger! I didn't expect for it to be that big ( since it's NYC) . What I liked was the Kitchen was separate from the bedroom. The kitchen was pretty big too and had everything we needed. Also had coffee, sugar, salt, filtered water.
The neighborhood is very QUIET, I',m a very light sleeper and was concerned about the car noises, but we had none. The place was very clean and the furniture pretty new. Thom leaves a lot of reading material for us for the city. He also taught us how to use the bus system, we were just using Subway and he said we could also use the bus with the same Metrocard ( free) we bought a 7 day unlimited metro card, which worked out very nice. We took the subway EVERYWHERE and then buses too! There are lots of restaurants and mini markets around. I felt very safe walking around the neighborhood even late at night with my boys. We ate ate Eleven B and also order pizza from them, they were very nice and friendly, and the pizza was great! We also ate at the Tompkins bagels ( loved the homemade cream cheese) right on B avenue. Another restaurant we had brunch was at Friends of A Farmer, I Just loved their pancakes! fresh blueberry pancake or the apple one . Its a little far to walk ( 77 Irving Place by East 18th ) and very nice and homey, but a little expensive.
Anyway, I really recommend this place, it's very clean, nice area, quiet and what makes even nicer is that the owner is very nice and very HELFUL and make your stay very pleasant! Thanks for wine and chocolates! I will recommend to all!
Esse apartamento é demais! Fiquei por 1 semana e adorei, me senti segura em caminhar com meus filhos tarde da noite. O bairro é quieto e calmo. O subway e onibus estao bem perto, tem muitos restaurantes e mercadinhos perto. O apt é hiper limpo e os moveis novinhos. Os lencois macios e cheirosos. Recomendo mesmo! Thx Thom!
