“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We've been to NYC several times and have done our fair share of time at the Hiltons, Holiday Inns, Wyndhams, Dream, Parker Meridian etc. They've all been fine - did what they were supposed to do - provide a bed to use while rushing from tourist attraction to tourist attraction. Now that we've seen many of the sights - we were looking for a different sort of experience to accommodate at trip that was about theatre, food and culture. We couldn't have had a better experience at the Greenwich Village Habitue.

We did a 7 day - 8 show and 2 food tour holiday - and loved having the opportunity to explore the Village in greater detail than we ever have before. This location is PERFECT. It's only a block from the Highline - and we often used this park to wander uptown at a quick pace. The subway is fairly near. Cabs are plentiful. Great, great eating in the village.

The river is only a couple of blocks away - great for runners/joggers.

The hosts, Kevin, Matt and Rey are low key - very hospitable - and are not in-your-face - available if you need them. We pride ourselves on being low maintenance guests, so it was a perfect fit for all of us. They have a lot of information - and are very accommodating if your flight arrives late.

The suites are so roomy compared to even the most expensive places we've stayed. Having a kitchenette took all the pressure off of the mornings - as we could toast a bagel, make coffee and relax before starting the day. Although the website does not promise daily cleaning service, it was provided - and we came home to a spotless suite every day.

This building was built in the 1830s - so a suburban McMansion it is not. The floors are a little uneven, they creak - and the stairs are steep. It has character - and it is charmingly decorated - you feel like you're staying with a friend. There is a dining alcove where I set up my laptop. The bed was reasonably comfortable - I've had better and worse as a traveller.

A lot of reviews say that this is a place where you feel that you are "living like a New Yorker" and I have to agree that this is part of the charm - we intend on returning. We stayed in #3, which made arriving and leaving a little painful with heavy luggage - but the in between part was lovely - maybe if I book earlier next time I will request the suite on the lower floor, (or I'll bring lighter stuff!)

Thanks to Matthew and Kevin for offering such nice accomodations in New York City.

You will feel like a native New Yorker in this great apartment in the West Village.

The one-bedroom/one bathroom property is located on a lovely quiet street in the city. A quick walk to the nearby 14th street subway station that offers an easy ride to Laguardia and Kennedy airports. The Train to Newark airport is also an easy trip.

The close walk to the subway also offers easy transport throughogut the city.

The West Village is the best neighborhood for a NYC visit. The lovely cobblestone streets, great restaurants and bars provide a neighborhood feel for your stay. The new High Line park is located two blocks from the apartment - and you can easily visit this very popular park befoe the tourists invade! We had the space to ourselves on an early Saturday morning walk.

Tha apartment provides a great place to rest after an exciting day touring the city. A comfortable living & dining area, area along with good sleeping and bath provide a great home base for your stay. Matthew and Kevin are friendly hosts - and now Mr. Ray is also available for great city recommendations. Thanks to Ray, we experienced Eataly - what a food palace!

This was our second visit to GV Habitue and we will surely return! Thanks Kevin and Matthew - and Ray!

My husband and I recently stayed at apartment 2 for a weeks holiday in New York. Ideally situated near the metro, plenty of taxis, loads of restaurants and bars close by and a corner shop at the end of the road.
The apartment is in a lovely old brownstone building, the street looks like a film set. The owners were very accommodating when our flights were delayed and we turned up over six hours late. The whole place is decorated with antiques and the building is full of original features.It was like staying in someone's home.
An added and unexpected bonus is the lovely Ray who came in most days and changed the towels and tidied up. Ray was also extremely knowledgeable about the area and places to see and do.
This is definitely the place to stay rather than a hotel, like a home from home.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the road and it was very quiet even during the day. We didn't have a distur...

My wife and I spent 5 nights in this lovely apartment. Kevin met us upon arrival and was very helpful in telling us about the area. The apartment is right in the West Village in a cool and funky area. Many restaurants nearby, not to mention the Highline and Hudson River. We were happy to walk up town to Times Square (3.5km) and the same to the financial district and WTC (lower manhattan). This cute apartment made our first trio to NYC even more amazing.

My wife and I spent two weeks at this apartment. We had a great stay, and our character-filled apartment was delightful: very spacious and comfortable, filled with antiques and quaint nicknacks, and well maintained and frequently cleaned. Our hosts provided excellent information prior to our arrival, and were very helpful during our stay. It is well located, with many cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance: Chelsea, the West Village and Greenwich Village itself have so much to offer. The subway is close as well. We stayed on the top floor in apartment 6 - certainly the stairs up are steep but also fun. We would gladly return on a future visit to wonderful New York!

Thanks to Kevin & Matthew. We just loved our experience of New York. Would thoroughly recommend staying at Habitué and in the West Village area. The accom is quaint and so New York. Close to so many places to eat, have coffee and enjoy a night out. The subway is very close but walking is a great option also so many new things to see along the way. We stayed in one of the back apartments over looking the lovely courtyard and other accom but very quiet.
Enjoynifnyoundecide to stay and take it all in, 12 days wasn't long enough for us
