“What’s your floor?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

“Heights matter!”, so if you stay in a “low, inwards apartment” be expected of “no-view”, “no-romance” and “occasionally noisy neighbors” (---).
“Perfectly located in central Manhattan” (+) in a “no-trendy area” (=).
Walking distance from the main public transport services.
Good for long staying but “not for a short period” (-).
“Large apartment” (+) “well equipped” (+) but a “little bit outdated” (-).
“Powerful wi-fi” (+) but “poor TV channels selection” (so if you decide to stay for a long period it could matter).
“Cold friendly staff” (-) “minimally helpful” (-) if you have any special request.
“Highly over-rated” (-) but still a “good option” (-).
My rate: 6.5/10.
Will I come back? Not in the same apartment!

Room Tip: High floor

Booked this as last minute accommodation two weeks before Christmas 2013 (a week before we went) after being let down by another apartment.
The apartment we had was on the 35th floor (having asked for a high one) the views were absolutely spectacular and need to be seen to be believed.
The apartment itself was spotless and plenty of room for the five girls living there for five days, also two bathrooms.
I would without hesitation book to go back should I return to New York.

Room Tip: There is no room service and you wash and dry your owns towels / bedding. The kitchen is well equip...

Booked this last minute as was let down with NY rental. It was amazing, so glad we went here, beautiful 2 bed roomed apartment, two bathrooms, 5 women and it was perfect! Small kitchen area with washer, dryer, fridge freezer, free wifi and the best was spectacular views, just amazing!

Room Tip: Most rooms have a good view but ask for a high room, their the best!

My company put us up here for about a month. It is used for both corporate housing, as the case for us, and also as a hotel. The rooms are terrific, and we really enjoyed staying here; we wanted to move in: homey, nicely appointed, large windows, and convenient, with a good kitchen, sitting area, etc. The place is not well marked as a 'hotel', so just use the address to find it, and you see "Bridgestreet" on the street level window. It looks more like a doorman condo building from the outside. The doorpersons/people at the front desk are helpful and nice, though I don't think you could rely on them as a 'consierge' service if you are a tourist needing recommendations; that's not their function. The area is quite central and easy to get around. While it is very comfortable, note that there is no gym, no landline, no restaurant or room service. (There are restaurants in the area) They are quick to come up to help if you have an issue relating to anything in the room. Free WiFi, basic TV channels. Ask for a room on a high floor; the views are stunning, either of the Empire State Building, or the Chrysler Building and uptown (I prefer the latter). Recommended.

I spent 4 nights here & was really disappointed. The bedding not only had an assortment of black hairs on it but also smelt really bad.Not only this,but the actual duvet & pillows also smelt disgusting as I took the covers off to change them for the others left in the cupboard for the sofa bed (I had rented a one bedroom).These were equally as bad and as there was no housekeeping on the Sunday they gave me the card for the washer & dryer so I could launder them myself. However the smell was still pretty intense so I had to abandon the duvet totally & put clothes on top of the bed & slept without pillows. Imagine sheets of a grubby teenager not changed for months....that was what it smelled like. In addition there was a gap in the flooring between the bedroom and the sitting room & it was really filthy including a used cotton bud....not mine.....which was really disgusting. I spoke to the housekeeping supervisor before I left and went through my room with him & he admitted he had not checked it before I arrived. I actually think that apart from the bathroom it was barely cleaned as the rugs were also covered in bits.I booked through bookings.com who I regularly use & have never had an experience like this before. I have since returning been back to their website & found a couple of reviews that say that the duvets,covers & pillows are not laundered between guests. My room was over $400 per night so think they should do that at least. I now wish I had gone back to one of the other hotels I have stayed in in New York before,it certainly would have been less expensive but as I had lived in New York for 13 years thought I would rent an apartment for a change on this visit as it was part bussiness part visiting old friends. It was so awful that I was barely in it ......did not invite anyone to come over as the smell permiated the whole space.
ONLY plus points were the location & the very nice staff on the front desk that agreed that the bedding smelt awful. Would never ever stay in anywhere run by Bridge Street again.

I have just returned from a 5 day visit to New York and 34th and Madison serviced apartments. I have to say that the value for money is superb. Compared to tiny New York hotel rooms you get a suite like accommodation with one bedroom & separate living room with a full kitchen. Only small minus from quite a small bathroom. The apartment is good quality and clean and the location is very central in Midtown with only a few minutes walk to Empire State building, Macy's, Time Square, Grand Central Station etc. Also many subway stations nearby. It has also 24/7 reception and all of the persons we met in the reception were very helpful. I would recommend this type of accommodation to anyone visiting the great city of New York.

Room Tip: We lived in the Studio which was the cheapest choice. It was much bigger and better than we expected...

I had a quite nice studio, very well equipped. Its location is simply perfect for visiting Manhattan and it is also very convenient if you arrive at JFK airport, as it is at less then 10 minutes walking from Penn station.
