This place was not fancy but was very clean and roomy. It's perfect for a large group to stay together in a safe and convenient part of the city. It was minutes from Empire State Building, subway stops and bus lines. It provides a washer/dryer and small kitchen.

First of all, check the website carefully before committing to this place. You have to pay entirely in advance and pick up the keys around the corner. There is no lobby or front desk. There is no one to call in the off hours and weekends--or--as it turns out, there's no one to call during office hours, either. "Leave a... More

We rented the Fannie Farmer room, location was excellent but room very tired. But the major problem was no hot water! Heating was overpowering, and noisy at times! Would not stay there again, the hot water problem was not sorted whilst we were there!

My wife and I stayed in the May Sarton room which is on the ground floor. The room was as old as we expected but roomy and clean. It was a decent location for walking to mid-town sites (Macy's, Times Square, the Theater district) with easy access to subways. Back to the room---an advisory in the bathroom suggested that it...

So, this rental was for a girls' weekend, and we wanted to all be together. We rented the Fannie Farmer. We had five girls, one in the small room right off the bathroom, two in the queen, and there are also two twin beds. The room was a walk-up, no elevator, and the stairwell was very narrow at the top.... More

We arrived around 2 pm and picked up the keys. The hike up to the second floor was steep even for my husband and me who pride ourselves on being exceptionally fit. We could not get the wifi or the tv to work so ran around all over the place trying to find someone to help us. Finally we went... More

We recently stayed in the Frances Harper room. The apartment had a lot of space with decent kitchen/bathroom facilities (including soap/towels), okay beds (though only one pillow per person) and an excellent location - the guest house itself is on east 35th, between Madison and Park avenues. Despite that, there are a lot of small issues that might put people... More

Went to this place with wife three kids and a friend. We knew the location looked good when we booked it and it really was which meant we could walk to most of the central NY attractions. The building itself looks a bit shabby, but the apartment itself was large and the was plenty of space. The kitchen was fine,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
