We have just returned from almost three weeks at the Sanctuary Guest Suites. We had Rama, a large suite with its own patio that slept the five of us comfortably. It was ideal accommodation for us - we are all vegetarian and like to take care of our own catering arrangements so having a well stocked kitchen, large fridge, cooker etc was perfect. The room itself was a good size, with a decent bathroom plus TV etc which was nice after a long day walking. We adored being in the Lower East Side - so many amazing bars, cafes, fascinating shops to walk round. We caught the subway most days to Midtown or Brooklyn - Delancy Street Station is a few minutes round the corner and we found it no trouble at all. Initially, we thought Manhattan so expensive for food but we quickly found the Essex Street market round the corner for everything plus a couple of cheap supermarkets nearby (Trader Joes was especially good) that we soon got sorted. Plus Stanton Street pizza is the best at 2 dollars for huge slices! The staff are welcoming and laid back - we found that if we needed anything at all we simply had to ask. Be aware that this is not the same as having a hotel room - on the first day we were surprised when we got in after a day's sightseeing that the towels hadn't been changed but we only had to ask and new towels arrived. I think it's because these are more like serviced apartments which, as I say, suited us because we like being independent. I would definitely recommend the Sanctuary for serious consideration - the price is excellent, the rooms are lovely - clean, well decorated, lovely soft beds - and we found the location ideal and the staff very helpful. The rooms really do look just like the pictures on their website! I would definitely stay there again.
Have a private patio - it's lovely to sit out on a hot summer evening.
