This private residence rental was very reasonably priced, clean and spacious. Three of us stayed in the Deluxe Studio plus 1 bedroom (with two twin beds) add-on which had a huge living area decorated with one chair, a bean bag chair, 4 stool eating table and a small kitchen area with a 2 burner cook top, microwave and mini fridge/freezer....

Great location, large quiet and clean rooms, . If you can survive without an elevator, wake up service, breakfast and front desk, this could be your place to stay in Manhattan. The Inn is located in an older building and has a little bit of an European flair to it. The young and friendly owners are very attentive. The place... More

We stayed nearly two weeks at Contempo on our first trip to NYC. We loved every minute. The best part is the location. Can't beat it! So close to Union Square, a major transport hub which makes you close to everything in Manhattan. We also appreciated the fact that the apartment had a decent amount of space - not so... More

We stayed 10 nights at Contempo in early November for our first trip to New York and were pleasantly surprised by the location and size of the rooms. Being so close to Union Square which is a hub for the subway, made life so easy to get around manhattan, the Greenwich village area would be one of the best locations... More

We stayed in a studio apartment for 5 nights as we felt it was a better option and better value than a hotel. The location is amazing, right on 5th avenue, but the room was so quiet at night you would never believe it. The studio was a good size, it was clean and comfortable with free Wifi and a... More

We stayed at the Contempo Design Suite (Deluxe Studio/1 Bedroom Apartment) for 10 days as we didn't want to stay in a hotel for that amount of time. The apartment was well appointed with a kitchen, large living space, comfortable king bed, separate bathroom, free WiFi and towels where changed every 2nd day. The apartment was clean & very quiet...

My husband and I stayed in the Deluxe Studio, which is up a couple of flights of stairs (approximately 45 stairs). The Deluxe Studio is spacious, almost cavernous….lol. It’s a lovely light and airy space with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The double glazed windows look out to 5th Avenue, and it is not noisy at all. In... More

We were more than happy to stay at the Contempo Design suites rather than in a more expensive hotel for, in many cases, less service. We had the one bedroom suite, ideal for a couple. The living area has a kitchenette with fridge and freezer, microwave oven, electric stove, toaster, electric kettle. The Contempo team are kind enough to provide... More

Contempo Design Suites is in an excellent location on Fifth Avenue at 13th Street East, well-situated in Greenwich Village for exploring the various other areas of lower Manhattan: West Village, Tribeca, Lower East Side and so on are all within fairly short walking distance. It is also close to Union Square, with its farmers market, and has some very good... More
