“Great base to explore the city from”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2010

This was a great location from which to see the city - many of the main attractions are within 30/40 mins walking distance - ideal since this is always the best way to explore a city.

We had 2 rooms both of which were clean and comfortable. A nice touch was that there was bread, milk, coffee, bottled water, orange juice and fruit in the refrigerator waiting for us which when we arrived which was a welcome surprise as it was late in the night when we arrived. In addition he bathroom was stocked with soaps, toothbrushes and shaving foam.
There are plenty of restaurants, deli's, take-away's and convenience stores within a couple of blocks.

Zebo and all of the staff at 310 were welcoming and helpful and it is very handy that the office is in the same building. Zebo was kind enough to allow us to stay past checkout time during the volcanic ash crisis while we made alternative plans after our flight home was cancelled - i would like to thank her for that and the use of her office computer.

The only improvement i would suggest is that they should think about upgrading the internet in the room to a wireless system. We all had iphones/ipods and smart phones and unfortunately the only internet available was via a ethernet cable - not much use unless you take a laptop with you which i would imagine not too many people do.

I guess the best test is if you would consider returning on a future trip and we would would be happy to do so.

We spent one week at Altro Sutton Place by Glboe Quarters. Ms. Zebo Sokolskiy was always available and responded to our reservations, questions and requests in a very executive manner. We had a great time because the apartment was comfortable and clean, and it was so nice to just walk to everything. The Theater District was nearby, good restaurants and places to shop.

We will come back because we felt just fine. I also want to congratulate all the doormen who were there, especially Benny who was also very helpful.

Regards,

Zebo and Engi welcomed us as family when we arrived, and the upgrade to a one bedroom apartment was most generous. The apartment (6C) was huge - closets everywhere so we could unpack totally and hide the suitcases. A bowl of fruit and breakfast supplies, plenty of spare linens, we felt very at home for our nine days in New York. The building is old but we loved living in "art deco". Very safe neighbourhood, good restaurants nearby and a short walk to Central Park, and the subway that gets you anywhere you want to go. Highly recommended. We love you Zebo.

To rent a flat is a great option, to visit New York and to avoid wast of time (and money) due breakfast and sometimes fo the dinner. The Globe Quarter property has a very good location 15 min. on foot to 5th Avenue and 10 min. from the nearest Subway (green line), nearby there is also a good supermarket. The room was very clear , with full equipment , with free High speed internet and free Telephone (only for local call). We have received before by email and the on site a professional kindly and very friendly assistance from Zebo and Regina. Thnak you!! Spasibo!!!

I really enjoyed staying in 310 , by all meanings, I was fully satisfied with my choice. The apartment, the services and nice decoration of the rooms were an unexpected bonus. One special and BIG thanks to Zebo, she and her team really makes the difference..., available 24/24, always trying to help, to find a solution and ensuring that customers are always happy. I am coming back.....George

I celebrated my 60th birthday with my wife and two grown-up sons in New York. The apartement was a perfect base for taking bigger and bigger bites in "the big apple". Perfect location in midtown, fruits and breakfast ready when we arrived(!), clean and plenty of space for 4 people to live in. Walking distance to everything there is to see in Central Park, around Times square, across to Hudson river etc. All of the different persons at the entry were very service-minded, plenty of restaurants and deli's around the corner and a satisfactory kitchen to make meals in. We liked it much better than to live in smaller hotell rooms - and cheaper too! We can for sure recommend this apartement to anyone visiting New York and when we go there next time - we will give them a call.
