This is a large sunny room in my apartment in the Gramercy Neighborhood of Manhattan. I live in it with my small friendly dog and very friendly cat and we all speak English and Spanish. The building has 2 elevators for your use and washer and driers (for a small fee). The room has a king size bed, clean linens and towel. The room also has free WIFI, cable TV, microwave oven, small refrigerator, desk for working. iron, and ironing board and storage space in a closet and bureau. It also has a very clean bathroom with tub and shower.
The neighborhood is one of the cleanest in NYC and very safe and quiet compared to other busy neighborhoods. It has tons of restaurants, bars, shops, pharmacies, banks and nearby supermarkets and delis. It is close to the Union Square subway station where you can get the L,R,N,Q,4,5 and 6 trains.

The block also has a city sponsored bike share docking station. It is also easy enough to walk to other neighborhoods such as Chelsea, China Town, Soho, Noho, East Village, Lower East Side, China Town, West Village and if you like walking, even to midtown.

In order to ease guests of payment concerns, I ask that guests pay balances via Paypal upon one week before arriving or upon arrival to the apartment.
I am flexible with cancellations and will issue refunds for early departures resulting in unused nights.
Check-in time is 1:00 pm and Check-out time is 11:00 am however, if we discuss ahead of time, I can be flexible with both times.... Just tell me what you need and we can make it happen.

    Nice and very clean apartment well located not far from Union Square, about 15 minutes by foot. Easy to find. Warm and attentive welcome. Gil is a great person and I loved spending these few days in his apartment. The bedroom is large with storage and a double bed, well heated. My stay was wonderful in part thanks to him. I will never forget him and his dog and cat. Hope to see him again.

    Gil is lovely as a host! His house is warm and you can feel a sense of home in the city. He's super flexible and adjusting based on your flights and is accommodating. He also helps with suggestions for tourists around the city. Personally scared of cats and dogs, but his ones weren't scary at all! 100% would suggest to anyone

    I had great time in his gorgeous appartment.
    The room is very comfortable, and his taste is good in interior.
    This area is great. It's easy to access a lot of sightseeing spots.
    He's very kind and helpful and I love his animals. They relaxed me.
    Thank you so much.

    Gil is a great person. I was extremely comfortable in your apartment. Gil was always asked and helped me with everything I needed. Gil animals are kind. I would certainly point out that anyone of good character and polite stays with him.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
