Dynamite Location, Fun NYC Apartment

  • 5 of 5
I cannot imagine ever staying in a hotel again after my experience staying at this apartment! The location is perfect for exploring the city -- five minutes in any direction and you can be in SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown and the East Village -- or on the subway up to Central Park and Times Square. The neighborhood is hip like the NYC you see in movies.

The accommodations were clean, comfortable and spacious (by New York standards). The apartment is fully-equipped and we found everything we needed. It is a great retreat after a long day of sightseeing.

Mandy is a lovely hostess and didn't hesitate to recommend great restaurants and bars in the area (there are a ton). I'd stay here again in a heartbeat, not only because it's a fab space and location -- but an excellent bargain for the price (especially when compared to the hotels in the area).

We recently stayed in this lovely little apartment in So Ho during our stay in New York. The apartment was well located, very close to the subways, restaurants, bars and shopping. Easy accessable to all the main attractions in Manhattan with just a few short stops on the train. The apartment was clean and had all the amenities that we required including a well equipped kitchen. The apartment was comfortable enough for 4 adults with one using a blow up queen size bed that was quite cosy. Also being on busy Houston Street it was surprisingly quiet in the evening. The Owner "Mandy" was easy to communicate with and was nice enough to let us access the unit a bit early on our arrival day as we had a very early flight. Overall our stay was quite pleasant and would thoroughly recommend this apartment to our friends or family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a very thoughtful review! I completely agree and also think this apartment is perfect for those that want to explore the area. I guess its why I still live only 2 blocks away as well. Come back anytime!

DESCRIPTION ACCURACY? NO. Basic rental requirements were not disclosed until after the cancellation deadline:

The “SELF CHECK-IN”: go next door, walk behind a sign, locate a lock attached to the sign, (there were several, so it wasn’t obvious), enter a code, and find the keys. If you arrive at night bring a flashlight; it’s dark back there. The entry door has graffiti on the outside; inside, the entry is filthy and funky.

We were told, “ALSO PLEASE BE DISCRETE” about getting into the apartment and, “If anybody in the building asks who you are just tell them that you are ‘Mandy's friends’.” I suspect it’s not a permitted rental and just getting in felt sneaky.

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO CLEAN before you leave or you will be charged another $150. This includes requiring the guest to, “vacuum…or sweep the entire apt…clean the apartment of dust…clean the entire bathroom (bathtub, shower, sink, floor and trash)…or you will be charged.” So, it’s a great rental for anybody who wants to spend their travel time cleaning an apartment.

Several items in the apartment description were just flat out false; even the photos are somewhat misleading. The sofa appeared new, but it stank. The three living room chairs were funky; one was stained, another was all torn up. And, no iMac. One bare-bulb lamp.

CLEAN? NO. Dusty floors, smelly mold and mildew on the shower curtain. The view from the toilet was a corner with a blobby mess of dirt and caulk, out of which, halfway through the stay, BUGS started emerging. Also just don’t even look under the kitchen sink or behind the aprons that are strung up next to the stove.

CUSTOMER SERVICE? NO. We never saw our “host”. I texted to let her know we arrived and that there were some cleanliness issues. Her response, “Cleaning lady came on Friday. She’s a great cleaner.” We noted the security chain on the front door had fallen out of the frame; the host told us to “use both bolt locks if you want, which is better than the safety lock.”

RECOMMEND? NO! We booked a week, but left early when we just couldn’t stand it any more. We were relieved the 3d person who had planned to meet us in NYC could not make it; I would have been embarrassed. The sad part is, this could be a really sweet apartment; the floors are beautiful wood, newer windows were pretty effective at muffling Houston Street noise. With a good deep cleaning and some TLC this apartment would have been a good deal in a great Lower East Side neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Hello Victoria-

I know that you reached out to me during your stay (1x) and everything that you requested was delivered immediately. My cleaning lady, Courtney who works for a professional cleaning company - Homejoy, also wants to talk to you in regards to your issues with the rental. She re-cleaned the apartment and sent over some pictures for you to review. I have also replaced the shower curtain (there was an extra new one in the apartment, but you never told me about this during your stay) and we wish you would have told us hat you were unhappy with these issues.

Everything that you reported to me was cleaned. Courtney would have come over again, if you just let us know you were unhappy. As I mentioned, we want you to be very happy and we take this very seriously.

All of my policies are on the Homeaway website for you to review at anytime. We only ask you to be discrete, to respect the neighbors in the building. The area by the lockbox is fully lit and all my guests have reported this to be safe and secure.

I did replace the orange chair and appreciated your feedback. You'll be also happy to know that I got a new reading lamp and also a lamp for the living room. I always appreciate guests recommendations and take this very seriously. As you can see my guests are very happy with me and my goal is for you to enjoy NYC.

In the future, if you have any issues or questions before you arise, you should always contact the owner as it is our goal for you to be happy. I'm glad you liked the location and the apartment.

We welcome you back anytime for another free night, if you want to visit us again.

Perfect Location for all things FUN

  • 5 of 5
Traveling from Alaska one is never quite sure that what you see is what you're going to get. But this apartment gives you an accurate description of where it is and what it has to offer. We traveled for my sister's 50th birthday trip bringing our husbands along as well. The location could not have been better for all things NYC. There are two subway stops within a 2 minute walk, the Whole Foods is amazing and the YMCA offers a wonderful workout facility. There are so many restaurants, bodegas, pubs that you would never actually need to leave, everything is within walking distance. However, anything that you want to do uptown is a simple F train to Rockefeller Center, could not be easier to get around. There are also cabs and buses readily available. We all felt extremely safe as well.
The apartment is tight for two couples but very manageable but again the description is completely accurate. Mandy was very easy to deal with and answered all my questions and was responsive to my emails. You cannot go wrong with this apartment, you won't regret renting it. Vezina/Evers Party

Convenient and affordable on the Lower East Side

  • 4 of 5
Let me start off by saying that we were both very happy with the apartment; for the money you won't find better accommodation for two friends. That said, I'll also say this:

1) It's the perfect size for two friends travelling together. Two _couples_, however, might find it a bit cramped for anything more than a weekend, especially with only one bathroom.

2) The apartment isn't _really_ in SoHo. Technically, yes, it's south of Houston Street (five feet south :-) ), but the neighbourhood in which it's found is more accurately described as the Lower East Side. Don't let that put you off, though; the LES is home to many fun things to see and do. (A little more later.)

3) The apartment had the usual amenities (kitchen, bathroom, etc.), all in good condition, but probably the best one, or at least the one we used the most, was the iMac in the living room. The iMac (and the WiFi that went along with it) was worth a significant portion of the price of admission alone.

4) The apartment was clean and well-maintained, and (for those worried about such things) showed no signs of bedbugs at all. That said, promised shampoo and shower gel wasn't there on arrival. A quick trip to the store fixed that, however.

5) Mandy (the owner) was very easy to deal with, and very responsive to questions. Her busy schedule caused her, at one point, to lose track of our departure date and the amount of money we'd paid, but this was all very easily dealt with. Make sure you keep a record of all of that too, just in case. (Some of this may have been our fault too; we changed arrival and departure dates a couple of times.)

6) There's lots to do in the 'hood. Personal high points for me included leather jacket shopping on Orchard Street, The Pickle Guys, Yonah Schimmel Knishes (downstairs), Katz's Deli (just down Houston Street), and Veselka's at 2nd Avenue and 9th Street. Whole Foods is also very close by, and there's a movie theatre right next door if you like. The apartment is also really close to the F train subway stop (the closest entrance is probably the one in front of Whole Foods), which you can take to Coney Island or points north. However convenient it is, I'll add that if you're planning on spending your time in midtown at the theatres, you may want to look at other properties a little farther north, unless you don't mind spending 10 or 15 minutes commuting back and forth on the F train every day.

You can tell by now we liked it. I think you will too.

great location to stay in NYC

  • 4 of 5
This was a nice, no frills place to stay for a family of 4. We stayed 8 nights in the heat of the summer (2 days upper 90s). The air conditioner was a big plus and really helped with street noise at night. The apartment pictures truly represent the apartment and it's charm. Lots of stuff very close and Mandy provided excellent dining recommendations in the neighborhood. Also, Mandy was very helpful with a late departure time by allowing us to keep our bags in the apartment for part of the day.
