“Noisy, poorly located but value for money!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

+This apartment hotel is great value for money if you are looking to stay at a place which is roomier than a hotel and includes a kitchen.
+Wifi is includes. Nice touches with welcome chocolates, kitchen with sufficient utensils, lots of towels, small toiletry pack

-This is RIGHT above the lincoln tunnel with very poorly insulated windows. I guess the agency is aware of this and therefore they provide you with two sets of ear plugs at check in. I had lived in NYC for many years, so the argument that this is NY and noisy does not fly. Getting woken up at 2 am on regular intervals due to the loud horn of a trailer entering the tunnel is not pleasant.
-Peak of NYC summer had not yet arrived, and the aircon cooling was average at best.
-Agency uses a very very strong room freshener, the smell of it can last for days

TheNYCReservationist, Guest Relations Manager at Apt 168, responded to this review, June 17, 2014
Having housed tens of thousands of people from across the globe, NYC noise is one thing visitors are not prepared for. We understand that and have taken steps to provide guests with devices to minimize city noise inside the unit. For those guests that are ultra sensitive to city noise we offer special units that have extra soundproofing. Most importantly, and this goes for anything in life, if you find yourself in a situation that does not meet your expectations and someone is there to help, just ask.

The location is perfect, near to everything. Subways, bars, restaurants, broadway... But I was expecting more from the apartment. The website of apt168 say "luxury rentals" .. I didn't see nothing luxuous... The place was OK, the prices are high as everything in manhattan, the internet didn't work well, everything else at our stay was fine.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Had a one month stay here for all of September 2013. Apartment is fantastic, exactly as described and safe and secure. Best thing about it was its proximity to everything! Walking distance to most monuments, Times Square, Highline, shopping etc. or Subway ride from nearby Port Authority Terminal to anything further. Great inexpensive/expensive restaurants and bars close by – so kitchen did not get the workout we expected – Yay!! - but great for breakfast to start the day. I slept on divan for most of the month and although firm soon got used to it. Also tried the bed for the last week and very comfortable. Taking this apartment best decision we made to enhance our visit as no matter how many maps you look at, you can’t comprehend convenience until you are there. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone but just for interest we were two 55+ plus girlfriends living our dream!

Clean, fresh, neat, comfortable, convenient, fun, friendly, and helpful concierge and staff. The apartment was all we had hoped for, and exactly as promised on the website. Booking online was simple and convenient. The price seemed very reasonable. Bed was comfortable and kitchen modern and well equipped. My wife and I were in New York City for the first time as my wife was attending a conference at NYU. This was the perfect base for our exploration of this amazing city. You can walk to many landmarks, or take the subway from Penn station which is about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the apartment building. Plenty of good food and shopping nearby.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2009

This is a group of studio apartments available by the night in the Garment District. The apts. are just as the photographs portray, in a modern building with a concierge. Plenty of space for two. Very comfortable, clean and convenient and managment was very responsive to our wifi problem. We like to have at least a fridge and microwave if we are staying multiple days- this was a full kitchen. Never heard any neighbors. Deli across the street, walk to Penn Station and Port Authority. And Mood Fabric Store, for all you Project Runway fans.
We loved it. Would very happily stay again.
