“Ok place for only four”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 for a stay in December 2013
4
people found this review helpful

The apartment is ok for the price, however it does not sleep four people. It would comfortably sleep three, four a little tight. The apartment is ok aside from a couple of rather large roaches. The heater could use some type of thermostat as it did work well and the apartment was cold most of the time. The neighbors were rather loud along with a barking dog, and the heavy marijuana odor coming into the apartment every night. The laundry room was very conveinient and clean. The room could use more towels as they only provided four towels for five people. The room's windows could be upgraded as they did not provide adaquet insulation from air entering the room. Would not recommend this room for use in the winter.

“Nice place, great location”

I stayed here with 3 friends for a weekend - having lived in the city, I can tell you that it's a classic New York apartment. Nicely kept, great location - just don't expect an epic view or a lot of extra space. Would also note that you should pack your own shampoo when you stay. Overall, we were quite satisfied and it met our expectations.

“Perfect combination of charm, comfort and ideal location”

This was our first time using Trip Advisor to book accommodation. Our representative Anna W. was very helpful with information although it became clear that she was most likely a property manager and not our actual host. Nonetheless, booking our apartment and adjusting for an early check-in as well as the additonal wi-fi charge of $5 per day was all straightforward.When we arrived at LaGuardia, we purchased a 7day unlimited Metro card for $30 and took the M60 bus and the N train to within 4 blocks of the apartment. The building is located on a lively, but not crazy busy street, mere blocks from Central Park. We buzzed the apartment number and the resident host greeted us in the apartment. Our first impression was that the apartment is precisely as pictured in the listing - and it is very clean and well maintained. The little kitchenette is entirely functional - although the dishes and cutlery are rather limited (not a big deal though). The bed is super comfy, and the sofa and coffee table proved to be a great improv office for doing work on our computer. We were able to hook our computer up to the TV for great movie watching. The bathroom is fine - lots of hot water - great medicine cabinet for storing toiletries (thanks for the blow dryer too). The shower was great - the tub is the tiny variety not uncommon in NYC studio spaces - we purchased a plug for the drain as it was not staying closed in order to fill the tub. There is even an iron and a small ironing board and a clothes rack with ample hangers - thank you! It would have been ideal to have more towels - it was pointed out by Anna that our contract stated that the host provides one towel per guest - and that is precisely what we got - however there was no towel to dry the dishes and a hand towel in the bathroom would have been great - however, it did not dampen our wonderful experience in this super apartment. The building is very secure and the whole neighborhood feels safe. We would not hestiate to rent this exact apartment again - and will be recommending it to our friends and family.

“A taste of New York living!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This apartment was ideally located to visit New York's sites. It was nicely furnished and suited our needs. My daughter ( a fan of Friends) was thrilled with it!
The only negative is that you really could not cook in the room. As soon as the waffles started smoking the fire alarm went off and it was loud!! It was also very reasonably priced.

“Idéal pour un séjour à NYC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2014
Google Translation

Appartement très NewYorkais!!! Très beau et grand studio. Idéalement situé. 8th av très commerçante. (Proxi au coin de la rue). A environ 7min de Columbus circle et 15min de TimeSquare. Propre (mais le recouvrement du sofa et le couvre lit devrait être changés). Très pratique pour des enfants en bas âge (baignoire, ascenseur, machines à linge au sous sol).
Un peut cher les $5/j pour Internet et les charges sup pour un Check-in ou Check-out en décalé.
Globalement: très bon service.

“温馨的舒适的小公寓”

床垫很舒服,我先生睡着睡着想看床垫是什么牌子。暖气很足,热水也很足,厨房准备了一些足够自己做东西吃的调料,还有特别为素食主义者准备的植物油,对于我们这种不能吃冷的中国胃提供了很大方便,很温馨的一个美式建筑。在这里,你不会感觉到你是一个游客,而是,你生活在这里,周围都是当地的居民。公寓的位置也很好,离去机场的地铁口只有两个街口,周围也有很多美食。最后要提的是BEN,因为我们错过了约定的时间,我的英语又不怎么好,他很耐心的给我解释,特别感动的是他怕我们在风口冻感冒了,特地打电话让我们去里面有暖气的地方等!真的很窝心!
