Best Airbnbs in New York

Airbnb

Tribeca loft

This authentic loft with one bedroom sleeps two people – and despite what you may have heard about NYC, it’s anything but cramped. With minimalist furnishings and state-of-the-art appliances, it’s an ideal option for someone who values modern conveniences. The location also serves as a great home base for exploring the rest of Lower Manhattan.

The cottage by the water

You want a bit of room to breathe in the city? This gorgeous Old Howard Beach spot will give you plenty of that, with some beautiful views out across the water. You're just five minutes from the subway and around 15 minutes Rockaway Beach, which you'll definitely want to check out. But really, just look at it! Lovely.

Brownstone Studio

This gorgeous brownstone has the best of both worlds: The exposed brick and original fireplace give it plenty of character, while the newly renovated bathroom and kitchen provide all the convenience of new construction. It’s also conveniently located near several subway lines and a Citi Bike station, so visitors will have an easy time exploring Bed-Stuy’s vintage shops, cocktail bars and music venues.

How often do you get the chance to stay in an landmarked, 10,000-square-foot mansion built in 1887? Snap up a room in this immaculately restored building to get a taste of Clinton Hill. Modern furniture and artworks create a lovely contrast to the intricate crown molding and old-fashioned crystal chandelier. Guests enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast, but you can shell out an additional $35 a day for a full breakfast. Wait, how do we make this our life every day?

Historic Two-Bedroom With Backyard

Two spacious bedrooms make this Ridgewood home a prime choice for couples. An unusually large kitchen (by New York City standards, anyway), bright sunroom and backyard will give you plenty of room to spread out. Take the opportunity to explore some of the nabe’s popular hangouts like Topos Bookstore and Nowadays Bar.

Romantic Rooftop Studio in Boerum Hill

This desirable little bolthole provides sweeping views of the boroughs, which is impressive in itself, but the windows also look out onto one of Brooklyn's oldest trees (according to the host anyhow). The studio is small (read: cute), but is decorated beautifully and the windows run almost orund the entire room. The parts you can't see out of, can be glimpsed from the sizeable roof terrace, which is accessible directly from the room. There's a separate bathroom, and a fridge, coffee machine, microwave and hairdryer are tucked away in the cupboard.

Arty first-floor studio

This Heights apartment sleeps up to six and is in a really great spot for exploring NYC. It has its industrial aesthetic pretty much down with bare brick walls, antiques, original pieces and loads of art books. You can reserve parking, too.

Lower East Side Loft With Panoramic Views

If you’re willing to spend, this one-bedroom unit will run you $2,000 a night. But the truly unique loft, which has exposed brick walls and a whopping 30 windows, is an incredible (and large) space with 360-degree views of multiple landmarks including the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge and East River. A common roof deck is the cherry on top.
