Fresh linens make all of the difference! The second bedroom has it's own entrance to the balcony. It's surprisingly quiet here since the bedrooms are in the back of the building (away from the bustling street!).

If you're looking for a relaxing stay in a tidy space with quick access to the most vibrant areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn, this is the place for you. It's a 5 min walk to LES, 15 min walk to Soho and 10 min walk to B,D, J, F trains for access to more neighborhoods. I am also close to the waterfront for great photo opps, jogging or safe bike riding via Citibike!

The space

The apartment is located on the top floor (via elevator access) of a building located in Chinatown / LES. Since it is located in the back of the building, the rooms are quiet at night. It's a shared two bedroom apartment with kitchen and bath.

Guest access

Guests have access to one bedroom (perfect for a solo traveler or a pair). Additionally there is a fully equipped, shared kitchen / living space and shared bathroom.

Interaction with guests

I work irregular hours and travel often. I will come and go from the apartment. I may cook quick meals and share the bathroom. Otherwise, I let guests enjoy the space to themselves. If you wish, I am more than happy to provide any tips or suggestions for your stay in NYC!

Other things to note

I provide a hair dryer, iron and steamer! There is also space for you in the refrigerator for beers, leftovers, etc. If you would like to arrange luggage pick up or drop off separate from check in / check out, please feel free to ask. It's typically not a problem. I know from experience that this can be a headache during travel, so I'm happy to accommodate!

Unit was as advertised. Meg did a great job at communicating. Clean, and fun spot. We would have given 5 out of 5 stars except the key pick up and drop off was a little inconvenient for us. Definitely recommend staying here.

Meg's place felt like a gem in the heart of Chinatown. It was a quick subway ride or uber to most of the city. Of my boyfriends six trips to NYC, this was by far the best location he'd stayed at. The best part however, was the calm that the apartment created after traversing the city. Whether it's the minimalistic room or the outdoor feel that the dining room brings, zen den could not have been a more appropriate title. Thank you meg for opening up your wonderful home.
