We stayed here for one week in April. Cost $1050 in total for the week, with no tax. Had to pay upfront, and as another reviewer has pointed out, once you have done this there is no comeback. I understand that the Co owns a number of studio appts in this large and slightly forbidding block.
The studio appt was shabby: the bathroom was mildewy, the bathroom cabinet was dirty, inadequate space, hangers for (very thin cheap) towels. Shower was powerful - in fact so much so that you were in water up to your mid calves due to the drain being unable to cope - although had no proper sprinkler attachment but hot water appeared to be limited. The kitchen was not clean: the cooker was all greasy/dirty down the sides, the kitchen cabinets were shabby, dated. The toaster still had crumbs in from last occupant. Very offputting we did not use these facilities. I would not care to stay in this appt in the winter as I do not believe it would be warm enough nor the summer as it had no air con. All the electrical sockets were loose from the wall as well. Bed was ok thank god.
We smelled gas and being worried we turned off the (ancient) stove at the mains. The gas smell went. I called up about this and was casually told that the pilot light must have gone out and needed to be relit. Why were there no instructions on this point which clearly was potentially hazardous! In general the whole appt could have done with a major overhaul but clearly the inappropriately named Hospitality Co do not care about repeat business. In addition the location is very noisy on thursday/fri weekend nights with people below, until at least 3pm, so if quiet is important to you do not get an appt facing onto Bleecker St! A pity because this is good value and clearly you do not expect 5* facilities but at least you expect the room to be clean and appliances safe. I now have discovered that I have warts/verrucaes on my foot which I assume came from the shower as they were not there before my trip. Not the souvenir I was thinking of...........
