Greenwich Village Habitue
Ranked #15 of 79 New York City B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 November 2011

We stayed here once more for 8 nights in October. This time my sister and her husband, and my brother and his wife came for part of our stay. Matt and Kevin were excellent once more in accommodating us all. We stayed in an apartment in the front of the property and it was just as lovely as the room we'd previously stated. My sister was so impressed that Kevin had worked out who she was (he'd met my brother and his wife before) and greeted her by name. A small touch, but it made her feel special.

I couldn't think of staying anywhere else on a trip to NYC. I would feel lost if I had to stay anywhere else.

Roll on next year! Thanks again Matt and Kevin!

Room Tip: Great breakfast places around the corner. Numerous places!

GVHabitue is great value for money - It v expensive to stay in NYC and this place is the right balance of bang for your buck, convenience and comfort.

The location is perfect - right in the centre of the meatpacking district - walking distance (in high heels) to everything - Pastis, Spice Market, Collichio and Sons, Chelsea Market, all the right bars...All the great spots.

Matt and Kevin provide a huge amount of info about New York - usually including all the up to date TimeOut magazines which are very handy. Its also more spacious than you would get in your typical NYC hotel room.

I thoroughly recommend

This place is amazing! I stay here at least once a year when I come to New York. The Innkeepers, Matt and Kevin are delightful and accomidating. It's cheaper and a thousand times nicer than a hotel. You'll have a HOME base in a delightful, safe neighborhood.

Our two week stay at GVHabitue was perfect for us - the apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean, perfectly positioned in a quiet street and located in what was to become our favourite part of NYC. Kevin was most hospitable on our arrival and allowed us to treat the apartment as our own home during our stay. The conveniently located subway enabled us to travel with ease to all areas of Manhattan and beyond. Thank you to our hosts - we will return!!

We have recently returned after a fantastic 13 night stay at GV Habitue. This is a wonderful place and an excellent base to explore fantastic New York City The apartment was so spacious and absolutely spotless, and was cleaned every 1-2 days.
The street is so typical NY and the area fantastic to absorb the New York ambience. There are a multitude of wonderful restaurants to choose from in the area (Meat packing/West Village/Greenwich Village) and the subway stations are close by.
Our hosts were very helpful, kind and provided us with all sorts of information that we might need whilst in NY.
We absolutely loved the apartment, loved the area, and will defintely stay here again when we return to New York!!

This review has been long due but I got so busy that..well never mind!
We came back 3 weeks ago from a 12 days stay at the Habitue....
EVERYTHING worked fine and smooth there. A great price considering location and how big the flat actualy is: for the same price you get a "small" room in a standard hotel, while here we found a good sized studio with a separate kitchen and dining area. It is lovely to have room for all our luggage and being able to relax and unwind without feeling "claustrophobic"
The decor is antique and tastefull, (some reviewers should be informed about ancient greek art..lol), the neutral brown colour scheme helps you relax, the slightly uneven floor adds character to the place in complete accordance with the furniture - The building is kinda old and the "uneven " floor is just part of it.
More mportant is that we found the flat clean and it was cleaned almost every day: we loved the leather couch very confortable as the bed was. We were given plenty of towels sheets blankets etc. good pressure in the shower.air conditioning that worked fine even if we pretty much used the fan.huge fridge in the kitchen coffe making facilities and a stove that we never used: I guess on vacation no one wanna cook and in nyc you have such a choice of good restaurants...
In the flat we found a considerable collection of AD: I spent quite a time reading those mags; in a drawer there was also plenty of maps and useful info on manhattan.
Location is perfect for me...away from overcrowed times square,
at gv habitue you are in the village but on the edge with meatpacking and if u into clubbing, fancy restaurants and designer boutiques(for women) you are in the right place.
The street were the flat is located is very quite and from our window we had a nice view of the owners garden which is lovely.
although quite you are 5 8 minutes walking to 8th av/14th street underground station which means you can travel across manhattan with the L line and take ACE to go uptown or downtown so location really is unbeatable!
some advice: eat at pastis and fig and olive which i will review separately.the spotted pig really deserve its first michelin star.another god restaurant (this one in chelsea) is eolo: you will be surprised by the homemade pasta and the dessert sicilian cannoli.
as for broadway show, don´t miss the addams family and spider man!

all in all we cant complain of anything was reaaly an AMAZING stay.
let me just add something: what the website nor the pictures can´t show you is how gentle polite and kind the owners are. Kevin gave us a lot of useful info on what to do there and as a nice touch during our departure he helped us with luggage and catching a cab.

I no doubt advice anyone to go and stay there.You won´t be disappointed!

We had a great stay at GV Habitue, one week in september. The perfect location, nearby restaurants, subway, deli, all the cosy neigborhoods in Manhattan. What more can we ask for(?) The apartment was also very nice, cleaned almost everyday, very comfortable bed, spacious. The hosts are amazing, Kevin was telling us the most important info when we arrived, and there were maps, books and brochures to look at if you want. Last day we where leaving late and where suppose to check out normal time, but I got sick the night before and we asked if we could stay until we had to leave for the airport if we paid more. Because we knew noone where arriving until next day. We were offered to stay until the next day for free if I was not able to travel home!! How nice of them! I decided to try even though I was really sick, but it was extremely nice of Kevin to let us stay until we had to leave for the airport.
I would definately recommend this place if you want to live in a cosy neigborhood and have "everything" close. And if you do not need the fancy hotel style accomodation. i preffer this apartment instead of a busy hotel.
