“Just right-quality location,service and value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We wanted a great location in the heart of Greenwich Village...and Jones Street delivers! Quaint but ideal apartment just right for the 3 of us, including a 4 year old. Evelyn and Mike extremely helpful and friendly. Exactly what we wanted...if you are looking for a great base to explore from, this is it. Many thanks Evelyn and Mike for all your help and advice. We'd love to come back. Jez,Marci and Cami.

“Perfect!”

Great place near Washing Square Park. Small, but its NYC. Also, we found it nice and quit. It was on the courtyard side, and not the street, so that helped a lot. Clean, new kitchen and bathroom, easy check in and out. Hosts were great. I guess it could have used a coffee maker, but with all the cafes in the area, it really wasn't necessary. Would highly recommend it and would like to stay again.

Both of our guest apartments have coffee presses, and most of our guests make use of the wonderful coffees one can purchase at Porto Rico Imports, a couple of blocks south. (They have amazing specials, sometimes $4.99 a pound for something delectable!) We also have a small electric drip coffee maker in our first floor apartment, and stovetop espresso makers there as well. Sorry that this guest missed these coffee making options but glad he loved the place anyway!

And don't forget, our price includes coffee/tea and something to munch at nearby Doma na rohu (www.domanyc.com) each morning.

just spent a week at this apartment just off Bleeker street. ideal location we walked alot to the sights which gave us the real feel of New York; Hudson river, ground zero memorial, Highline, midtown, Greenwich village, Soho, Tribeca, battery park, times square. if you don't want to walk then easy subway access yellow taxis and water taxis can get you everywhere from very close by. the apartment was very comfortable and in a traditional brownstone in a leafy street, and had everything we needed. restaurants and bars all within walking distance and great quality on offer but to suit all budgets. greenwich village has a lovely relaxed feel and lots of music bars. Evie and her family were very welcoming and we would recommend their cafe Doma close by for superb breakfasts and great beer.

“What a fantastic location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Looking for somewhere to stay in NYC can be a real challenge. After a lot of trying to find somewhere I thought to look for a guest house and after much looking it seemed that the search had narrowed down to one, Jones Street Guesthouse. After reading reviews on many places in NYC it seemed that 31 Jones Street could be one of those “one in a million” types of places. Always hard to make a decision on something sight unseen, it was made easier by the positive reviews that were offered.

After emailing and getting a positive response from Evelyn we decided to chance it and book the place. The things that swayed us, apart from the good reviews was the proximity to Bleecker Street and the opportunity to live in a neighbourhood. It gives you a much better idea of the everyday life going on all around you. Being in the West Village was really good, we had access to all sorts of eateries and small grocers etc. The area around Bleecker Street is a veritable goldmine of all sorts of stores, food, books, music and other things. As well, the proximity to the Subway gave us the opportunity to head uptown, downtown or to Brooklyn with ease. Getting the 7 day pass is a great idea, giving unlimited access to Subway and local buses.

Once we had booked we received from Evelyn a 14 page document with all sorts of information on subways and local things to help us out during our stay. It was a very useful thing to have and we used it quite a lot. Jones Street is a relatively quiet street most of the time and apart from some noise during the day, specifically during the morning it is a good place to stay. It is a busy area and there is always some sort of activity going on, more so on the weekends and in the evenings.

We would have no hesitation recommending this place to friends, or indeed staying there again, in fact we felt that our time in NYC was all the better for having stayed here.

The people who own the guesthouse also operate a Café on Morton Street and you will be provided with discount vouchers for breakfast at the Café, Doma na rohu, which is just a short walk away on Morton Street. Good value too!

The photos on Tripadvisor are spot on and the description does it justice. Everything that you require is provided and it is completely self contained.

We had such a good time here and the Guesthouse was great, I have been recommending it to everyone. We would go back tomorrow if we could.
