Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Alphabet City - 1A

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

***My calendar has been updated for late spring discounts!!! NYC in the spring is awesome! Please note the listing price is a starting rate. Summer rates are different*****

My apartment is a great place to stay. There are hardwood floors in the common areas, and bedroom, the kitchen is clean, nice sized area to eat/table and ceramic flooring, with modern appliances, fridge, and dishwasher. The apartment is on the 1st floor of an elevator building, and a beautiful large park is only a block away (fantastic for resting, lounging, enjoying the outdoors and for kids). The space is beautiful and spacious, plenty of light and a true (good) NYC experience.

The living room is spacious and has a very solid and comfortable modern sofa bed (suitable for 2 adults). The living room has a large flat screen t.v. with cable and plenty of space for everyone to hang out. The bedroom is large and is very comfortable with a high end mattress (suitable for 2 adults), closet and windows, flat screen etc. The bathroom has a full bath/shower and is clean.

All linens, towels, cooking/eating utensils, utilities, WiFi are all included. I can even have maid service if you like to take care of linens while you stay (additional charge). Basically just bring your bags and get ready to enjoy the city.

This apartment provides most importantly a true New York city experience, not a white-washed experienced you'd get in Mid-town.

If you're vacationing you don't want to waste time just getting to the subway or taking a cab to get you somewhere, you want to simply walk out of the building and be in the heart of NYC. The subway is close by. To say the least this is a gem of a place in the east village

I may be flexible for arrival or departure times however must be coordinated prior to arrival. Car service can be provided for an additional charge, a driver will meet you at the airport and will take you right to the apartment.

If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask.

About John

I'm a hardworking and friendly New Yorker. I love to host guests and find pleasure in helping people get to know my wonderful city. I transplanted to NYC about 10 years ago and fell in love with the city the moment I arrived.

Why John chose Manhattan

Simply put this apartment is in a fantastic location. A true one bedroom apartment and on the first floor (raised above street level) and a great base for touring/visiting the city.

Affordable place in a cool area

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with a group of three female friends (we are all in our early twenties) and it definitely suited our needs. We had a ridiculously late check-in, but owners were understanding and accommodated our arrival. Surprised by other reviews saying it wasn't clean- we found the space perfectly neat and tidy. It's small, but it's New York so we were expecting that, and we didn't find it to be an issue. Couldn't get the TVs to work, but besides that, amenities were as needed. Communication with owners was fine and they were accessible when we had a few minor problems.

Location is perfect for young visitors to the city- tons of cool bars in the area (though not right on the same street, so not a huge noise problem). Also, it's only about 10 minutes to the subway station.

Thanks for everything!

On a scale of 1 to 10/ ten being wonderful I give this place a rating of 0...Not deserving of 1 star

  • 1 of 5

Very disappointed. We were not prepared for the all night partying on Friday & Saturday but were told to remember NYC never sleeps...ok/ I get it. But more important was the condition of the apartment. No washcloths, microwave & dirty sheets on the bed...won't even comment on the condition of the bathroom. This was our 1st time to NYC & we did not let this disappoint our visit to amazing sites that are NYC. We will return but count on us not returning there. Please look beyond this place to make your stay memorable. M. Denver

terrible experience

  • 1 of 5

We had a very late check in, the owner was ok with that and he helped us with the keys.That was a nice of him. I thought that everything will go well.The place was clean,we didn't expect much.But just few hours later we realized that this wasn't our best choice.The street was very noisy. We couldn't get any sleep for two days and we left a day earlier. I had a filling that all the neighbors are choosing the spot under our window for their night happy hour parties.

Also there was a construction going on exactly next to our apartment. The workers told us that they have been working for a year and will continue til November.I sent few messages to the owner , he never responded, even when I told him that we are leaving a day earlier. Nothing!

Very very bad experience, no communication, no offering for some refund, or at least an apology.

Fair price for decent space, good, safe location

  • 3 of 5

Comfortable bed and neighborhood filled with good food and shopping options, just an 8 block walk from the subway on 1st ave and 14th st. Some very minor improvements could have given this space a fourth star but for the price in NYC, hard to beat. We would have stayed longer if we could have reached our contact person who was very accommodating when we first met but apparently lost his phone during our stay. Contact from someone else would have helped a great deal and allowed us to stay the extra day. For a no frills economy stay, this place is great and the first floor easy access was very convenient for luggage etc.

Great apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation. This apartment is in a great location. It also had plenty of room for the 3 of us. We also brought our dogs and there is a dog park right up the next block.

Car: not necessary

You'll be in the heart of the East Village. You're close to everything and just about everything you need is within walking distance shopping, drinks, food, landmarks, parks, subway etc. You'll love the neighborhood
