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. This was perfect to have your own breakfast in and eat out the rest of the day. As it was an older building, it was neat to see radiator heating but they also had electric heaters too. The bathroom was a little small, but had a full tub/shower and built in hair dryer. Hot water was not available one morning so a quick splash that day to wake up. Door access is through punch code which was great so you didn't have to fuss with any key/access card to carry around or lose.
The location is transit friendly near Union Square subway station. At least 1 hr and 30 minutes by subway to/from JFK. My only complaint is there is no elevator so you do have to lug your luggage up one or two sets of long stairs, which I knew in advance and was prepared to do so. Just don't shop too much to add weight to your luggage on your departure. They can accept your luggage if you arrive early before check-in time and allow you to hold your luggage there into the evening on the day of checkout which was super appreciated as we had a late flight departure.
