Having stayed in apartment 4F for a week we now conclude that the guy saying this was an unsafe place should go back to his retirement home in the country.
We are a family of four with two small children who spent the time in New York walking around, sight seeing, museum watching etc. New York is a special place on earth, especially for us coming from a mid size Swedish town but we had a wonderful time here.
We didn't regret staying on upper west side near the park and we certainly didn't regret staying in Central Park House. Beside of the lack of an elevator the place is perfect - and the lack of an elevator just gave us a chance to get more exercise than the jogging in the park and the walking around ;-) so we have very little bad things to say about the place.
No it is not a hotel, there is no front desk, there are no guys holding the door for you, you don't have your own armed ex-cops patrolling the hall ways, the maid doesn't come around every day and make your bed - but if you just put your towels out they return in the afternoon clean.
We stayed more than five days, and therefore had one complimentary cleaning that was arranged over the phone - using the phone in the apartment and the free phone number posted in capital letters on the inside of the door - and here we had the one miss. They misplaced our 'order' but on the return call we were promised that it would be done the next day, which it was - hotel standard cleaning.
The apartment is spacious and the kitchenette is adequate for a holiday apartment. The furniture and layout is fine for four persons in a family. The air condition can be turned off and the windows open. What more can you demand from a low-mid price (compared to other hotel/apartments in New York) apartment?
