Laid back, longer stays preferred. This 1, larger, clean room in my cozy 2 bedroom apartment, with modern kitchen & bathroom is just steps from Little Italy, Chinatown, Nolita, Soho, Lower East Side, Little Italy, The Village, Chelsea, Tribeca & FiDi, Come stay & enjoy your trip in the heart of Lower Manhattan.

The space

Super location in historic neighborhoods, with a room twice the average size for the area. I stay here as well but you have free use of the whole apartment, except for my bedroom. The kitchen and bathroom are new. Feel free to stay in and cook or go out to try one of the dozens of restaurants within steps of this historic Nolita building. The views from the rooftop are spectacular.

There is no living room... No couch or anything, but it hasn't been a problem for anyone yet.

I am new to hosting but want to give it a shot after air bnbing extensively in Japan.

Guest access

You have access to a large, long bedroom with two windows, a dresser, chair, bookshelf, a double bed, and lots of plants. Brand new kitchen with new appliances. And a cozy bathroom with a shower. Come and go as you please. Feel at home!

Interaction with guests

I will be happy to give you pointers on all the neighborhoods around here or to leave you alone, whichever you prefer. I don't mind sharing what's in the kitchen or having a drink to welcome you, but this is your stay, so let me know what you need.

Other things to note

If I am out of town for work or travel, my roommate will be around to help you out. She has 2 cats which live in her room. I am more of a dog person, but like I said, they never leave the room. If you have a problem with this set up, please do not stay here.

Matt's room is located just at the foot of Little Italy and on the tips of tips of Little Italy, Chinatown and Soho. It's about a 6-14 minute walk from the subway depending on which line you're taking. It's also safe at night and there're lots of eateries around. Didn't meet Matt (who's mostly in Berlin) but his friend received me, appreciate that he waited up for me as my flight was delayed. However, the room on the 4th-floor walk-up was terribly filthy and dusty. The floor was covered with dust and dirt and there was litter around. I had to sweep the floor myself. The trash bin was also not emptied and everything was just caked in dust. I itched all over the 4 nights I was there. The two towels provided were damp. It was absolutely disgusting. The sheets were not fresh. There were dried white spots, specks of blood and dust spectacles around. The worst part was that it stank of somebody's odor. I slept on the blanket on top of the sheets for fear of allergies and the pillows were smelly too (didn't use them). The room lock is spoilt and cannot be locked. There were also no hangers to put up your clothes and everything was just filthy, dusty! It was a nightmare to stay in. I was very uncomfortable the whole time. It's upsetting for my first trip to NYC. The common spaces were clean at least and the lady flatmate and 2 cats were very friendly.

I’ve stayed in a few Airbnb’s around different parts of the world (London, Borehamwood, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Stockholm). When hosts are not available, they do their best to ensure that the check in process goes as smoothly as possible. They leave the key with someone that they know will be available for sure or a spare key lock box maybe? Matt was notified at 2 PM (earliest check in time) on May 20th. I informed him that I was in town and ready to check in. He told me that his roommate was at work and left me with two options; either I wait until 5 PM when his roommate gets out of work, or pick up the keys from her at her job. Mind you, I had bags and was tired from a 3-hour flight. Host was very nonchalant as evidenced by his lack of effort to help. He continued to say that he usually hears from people days in advance before they check in. I responded that if 2 PM is the earliest check in time, you should anticipate that guests may want to check in as early as possible. He goes “Yeah…it’s not a hotel”. I was so appalled by his attitude that I decided not to reply. He sent another text message saying “we have our lives and jobs”. Finally, I had to wait 3 hours to check in at 5 PM.

Response from MaTT:
I'm sorry this happened to you, but of the dozens of people we've had through, this is the only one to have such a problem. He was given contact information in advance to schedule his arrival and messaged at about 2pm to say he would be there at 2pm. People usually respond with their arrival plans at least the night before or at the very latest, when they arrive from the airport. This was a rare situation where it could not be handled immediately, when reached out to other key holders, all of whom were busy at the time. There was nothing I could do on such late notice. It's true Wally'S. Air BNB hosts have jobs and other life engagements and need to plan ahead to accommodate their arrival. We don't just wait around all day at a desk with a bell waiting for you. In the past, I've paid for taxis for guests, bought them dinner, and assisted them when there was a misunderstanding. Your attitude from the start gave me a good idea of what I was dealing with. Look at the other reviews and then at yours. There are always a couple that stand out. Thank you for being my worst review. Hopefully, it stays that way.

Matt was very accommodating and made sure I knew how to get to and from his place. Perfect area to stay in! Very near good coffee and the subway! Unfortunately didn't have a hot shower while I was there but Matt did his best to fix it Would likely stay here again

I can't say enough good things about my stay with Matt. This was my first air BnB stay and I couldn't have chosen a better host or location. Living in small rooms (temporary sublets) throughout NYC and Brooklyn I can say the room was a comfortable size for NYC. The large bed and bookcase could keep you amused if there were not so many cool things to do in that area! Matt is the perfect host. He is fun, respectful of privacy and extremely interesting! It also doesn't hurt when your roommate is easy on the eyes; he is a perfect gentleman. Once there was a minor heating issue and he completely took charge of the situation (even though he was in Berlin). The minor situation took two days to resolve during this time he bought a hotel room for me and my visiting sister. He bent backwards to make sure I was always comfortable and happy with my stay. He is an unbelievably generous and gracious person who went far out of his way to make my stay wonderful; it was AMAZING! P.S. This is really the most amazing location.

Fabulous location. Matt sent me a number for an economical taxi service to use from the airport and was there to meet me when I arrived at his place. The bed is extremely comfortable and the room spacious. Will definitely return on my next trip to NYC

In the center of it all really is a good description as everything you would want is within walking distance. Before booking the room I had some questions and Matt was more than helpful to answer all of them. Would stay here again.
