One of the most visited cities in the world, New York features many attractions, including museums, theaters, beautiful buildings, department stores, and Instagrammable places. But in terms of accommodation, we all know that Airbnb provides a fresh alternative to the generic chain hotels for our travels. Whether you’re looking for a staycation weekend or are visiting The Big Apple for the first time, Airbnb is an excellent way to find affordable yet comfortable places to crash at. Live vicariously like a true New Yorker; choose from listings such as quirky Brooklyn brownstones to swanky open lofts in Manhattan in the NYC.
Here are the best Airbnbs in New York City that will make you feel at home on your next visit.
Private rooms in Brooklyn
To be in the heart of Williamsburg with easy access to everything was perfect - and having the apartment facing the back of the “church” made it incredibly quiet at night. Lindsay (guest review)
130 USD / night | 1 bed | 2 guests
You’ll love it here if you’re into unique spaces. This two-storey loft is built on the third floor of a 19th-century church. With exposed brickwork and modern yet rustic furniture, this loft combines the comforts of new with the old factory grit.
Guests won’t have the whole loft, but the host, Andrew, will be upstairs most of the time anyway. Everything else you need will be accessible, including a shared kitchen, living room, laundry closet, balcony, and your own bathroom.
This charming loft is located in Williamsburg, one of the most liveliest neighborhoods of New York. But also, unlike Manhattan, the noise here isn’t made up of cars but of people out and about. There are also tons of great eats and beautiful parks within easy reach.
Williamsburg Church Loft Space
Price: from 130 USD
The apartment was beautiful - open, airy, and bright. There’s clearly an attention to detail in the decorating! David (guest review)
This loft space with exposed brickwork and designer accents is ideal for a young couple, especially if you want to experience a taste of authentic Brooklyn-style living. It’s right on the third floor of a freshly-renovated industrial-era factory building, and is decorated with a Scandinavian style in mind.
If you are too lazy to head out, you can whip up a simple meal in the fully-equipped kitchen, complete with high-quality appliances and cookware. Take your meal up to the gorgeous rooftop patio and enjoy the sunset over the Manhattan skyline for a perfect evening.
Located on one of the calmer streets in Williamsburg, the area offers a quiet neighborhood charm but with easy access to the city. The neighborhood offers a variety of fantastic restaurants, bars, and cafes, as well as supermarkets and delicatessen shops.
Airy Designer Loft in Williamsburg
Price: from 133 USD
99 USD / night | 2 beds | 4 guests
One of the coolest Airbnbs in New York, this one is not your traditional vacation rental, but is an actual hotel. Located in the industrial chic area of North Greenpoint in Brooklyn, the duplex in The Box House Hotel will provide a comfortable stay for up to 4 guests, perfect for people traveling with friends or family.
The loft is styled in bright colors, hardwood floors, and a mix of antiques and contemporary art, creating a warm and cozy setting. It also has high ceilings and skylight windows, so the unit is bright all day long. Not only that, the stunning view of Midtown Manhattan from the balcony itself is worthy enough to stay in this Brooklyn property.

This tastefully decorated studio has just the essentials for two guests. There’s a comfortable double bed, a full bathroom, an HD TV, and some self-catering amenities such as a Keurig coffee maker, a microwave, and a refrigerator (plus a few thoughtful touches from the owner including bagels and other snacks). Although the studio is a compact unit, typical of Bushwick homes, it has high ceilings and lets in lots of light. If you so desire, you can use the blackout curtains to dim the room. The rental is nestled in an up-and-coming neighborhood, so you’ll have lots to check out in the area. It is also just a few minutes from lower Manhattan. Be warned that as the studio faces the street, you should expect a bit of noise - all part of the Brooklyn experience, though!

A lovely space filled with so many interesting pieces of art. Richard and Karen were great hosts and made sure our stay was comfortable. We enjoyed the close proximity to the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Gardens, two things we highly recommend when staying here. Steven (guest review)
If your young family is looking for accommodation and wants to explore the Brooklyn sights, look no further. This lovely Airbnb in New York is a classic brownstone in the heart of Park Slope that is close enough to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, but is also an oasis of calm. The Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Garden are also easily accessible from this listing.
You’ll get the whole of the third floor of the house to yourself, complete with a private bathroom. The bedroom is spacious, with a large window letting lots of sunlight in. Plus, the hosts welcome guests to the sitting room on the second floor, where you can say hello to their furry friend, Peaches the cat.

Want to be away from all the hustle? Consider this suite in Greenwood Heights, South Park Slope. It’s minutes from Prospect Park, and a good 15-minute walk to the F/G train that leads you to Manhattan. If you are here on the weekends, check out the farmer’s markets, where you’ll find food trucks with local Brooklyn-made goods.
One of the best Airbnbs in New York City, the suite includes a large bedroom and bathroom, perfect for a couple. It’s on the ground floor and you’ll have your own private entrance to the suite. Guests are also free to use the spacious and sunny backyard. Chill out with a coffee or book in hand!
Other perks include Wi-Fi access, and there is a projector mounted to the room ceiling, so you can have a mini-movie night right in the room.
A word of caution though: they have cats and two small children living on the property, so if you are allergic to pet hair or feel uncomfortable around kids, this is probably not the place for you.
Private Suite in South Park Slope
Price: from 110 USD
Their place is warm, welcoming, and full of positivity. It helped spark the creativity we needed during comic-con weekend. I would absolutely recommend experiencing Brooklyn with these wonderful people. So much fun! Christina (guest review)
Want a glimpse of what Brooklyn life is like? Mingle with the occupants here at Musician & Artist Haven, where there are interesting personalities and lots of comfy seating areas to socialize.
This New York vacation rental is a converted warehouse space that has an open floor plan and high ceilings, plus there are instruments for your use. You’ll also have access to the backyard and rooftop. It’s just brimming with creativity, perfect for traveling bands or artists. But even if you aren’t in the art or music business, it’s worth tapping into some of their positive energy too. Plus, you’ll get free food!
Location-wise, even though the loft is tucked away in east Brooklyn in an industrial warehouse district, the neighborhood is very safe and the property is just a block from the train station. You’ll just be a short half-hour ride away from the Manhattan Chelsea galleries and MoMA.

A beautiful getaway with the three C’s. Cozy, convenient and clean!! Dina (guest review)
If you’re looking for some relaxation time in New York City, this Brooklyn apartment is your go-to sanctuary. You really can’t go wrong here, especially with the amazing views of the Verrazano Bridge you get from all the rooms.
The space itself is tastefully decorated with vintage knick-knacks and photography, giving it a slight Bohemian vibe. And with the big south-facing windows, there is no shortage of natural light here. It’s really the perfect setting for yoga as well.
Additional perks include a full kitchen for when your chef-like instincts kick in, hot showers with massage settings, and a soaking tub for the ultimate relaxation.

Private rooms in Manhattan
Perfect neighbourhood and base to explore! Plenty going on right on your doorstep but no noise inside. Luis (guest review)
For the solo traveler, look no further. Get cozy in this room right in the middle of it all, on Elizabeth Street in Soho. You’ll not only be surrounded by hip boutiques and quaint cafés, but will also have super-easy access to any part of the city with all the subway lines just a stone’s throw from your doorstep.
Exciting amenities here include a modular shelving wall with lots of storage space for hanging clothes, new towels and linens, and a fully-equipped kitchen to cook in when the hunger pangs kick in.
Amazing room in Soho
Price: from 85 USD
140 USD / night | 1 bed | 2 guests
If you love anything minimal and clean-looking, this listing is perfect for you. This bright and rustic room is located in the heart of downtown Manhattan in Little Italy, and has everything you’ll ever need during your travels: a shelf and hangers for your belongings, fresh towels and linens, and a fan and heater to adjust the temperature according to your liking. It even has a HD TV with Netflix, for those rainy days when you just want to snuggle under the duvet.
And if those amenities aren’t enough, the loft features a working gas fireplace, exposed brickwork, and real hardwood floors, thus retaining its rustic charms. Guests can even access the rooftop 24/7 for an amazing view of the Empire State Building and the new World Trade Center!
But the best thing about this apartment is its supremely central location, being directly east of Soho, directly west of the Lower East Side, and north of Chinatown. Plus, you’ll have a stretch of the best shops and famous restaurants within just a 10-minute walk.

Fans of the Broadway musical ‘In The Heights’, pay attention. Take a moment and step into Usnavi’s shoes for a while in this listing located right in the neighborhood of Washington Heights. Take a stroll around the famous Fort Tyron Park, where Lin-Manuel Miranda penned most of his other hit musical, 'Hamilton’.
But don’t worry if the above sounds like gibberish to you. This private room is a delight for anyone. The apartment is clean, neat, full of natural light, and carefully decorated with colorful art pieces to give it a modern vibe. Plus, the hosts have anticipated everything you might need, such as necessary toiletries and towels.
The Washington Heights neighborhood is lively, safe, and picturesque, and the subway is just steps from the apartment, making it very convenient if you want to go sightseeing in the rest of New York. Manhattan is just a short 20-minute train ride away!

The room and the apartment was found very clean and tidy. The place is charming and gives you an impression of New York City living. This calm and charming room gave me a lot of good rest from the street life. Heidi (guest review)
If you aren’t fussy and just need a basic room, this listing might be a good fit. You’ll get the room all to yourself, but the hosts will be more than happy to hang out with you in the living room!
In the room, you’ll have access to high-speed Wi-Fi, a cooling fan, and a heater. They have Netflix in the living room too, if you want to relax and catch up with your shows.
The place is in a prime location on the Upper West Side, and just steps away from most of the major tourists attractions, such as Central Park, American Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center, and Columbus Circle.

This brand-new, one-bedroom luxury condo unit in New York is designed for traveling professionals looking for a long-term stay. Although it is located in Midtown Manhattan, the unit is way up the building that the noise becomes barely noticeable. Since the hosts intended the unit to be leased for a minimum of 31 days, they made sure that the space is complete and functional. The minimalist aesthetic is visible all throughout the full kitchen, the bright and airy living space, and the tranquil bedroom. You can take in the stunning view of the New York skyline from almost every part of the unit.

If you fancy your own space in Manhattan, this listing is a great find. It is a bright and spacious studio loft, and is just the right size for two guests to have a comfortable stay.
It’s tucked away in a newly renovated elevator building by the Flatiron Building, and the furnishings and decorations give it a modern yet organic twist. You’ll be all set with large 55-inch (140-centimeter) HD TV in the living room, and leather couches to lounge on.
The location is unbeatable, visitors can easily walk to the districts of Union Square, Harold Square, and Chelsea. And if you feel like whipping yourself up a meal in the kitchen, grab some groceries from Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, both just steps away from the doorstep.

The hosts have added a few special touches to make you feel even more at home. The studio is provided with a kitchen inclusive of a microwave and dishwasher, so you can let your inner David Chang out and whip up some something delicious here.

It’s really hard to find a listing that accommodates more than 4 people, and this one is big enough to host 8! So if you are traveling in a big group, look no further.
This charmingly decorated apartment accommodates 8 people, with 2 bedrooms each having brand new queen-sized beds. There are also two very comfy fold out couches that are also queen-sized. The host has prepared bed linens, towels, shampoo, and body wash for all to use, and there will usually be some coffee in the cupboard and condiments for cooking. There is even an iron and ironing board for anyone who wants to use it after doing the laundry.
And that’s not all. The property is in a very safe, quiet, and beautiful neighborhood with tree-lined streets. The L train is only one block away and will take you to the best parts of Manhattan in 20 minutes!

There’s a first-floor bedroom and another loft-style bedroom upstairs. Skylights right above the queen bed encourage guests to stargaze at night. The beautiful dining room is partly set on the water, so you can enjoy the view over dinner or a cup of coffee. Every single part of this cottage is an Instagrammable spot - even the bathrooms!

You’ll have the whole studio loft, which includes a large living room, open-plan kitchen and dining area, and a sleeping area complete with a brand new queen-sized mattress. You can even travel with a child and the host will kindly provide an inflatable bed at your request!
Other awesome perks the host have added include Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV with cable, and a vast movie collection. Plus you’ll have access to the private backyard, complete with 10 seats and a table to have a small dinner party.
The property sits handsomely in the Middle Village residential area in Queens, so it’s very safe and homely. The train station is just a 5-minute walk away, plus there is plenty to see within a few steps as well, such as the Juniper Park, and Metropolitan Street for shopping and dining.
