“Charming stay in NYC”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I stayed 4 weeks at this appartment. The location is excellent, only a couple of blocks to 3 subway stations. Safe and quiet area to stay. D'agostino and Whole Foods Market and Duane Reade are within 5 minites-walk. The kitchen is equipped everything necessary (salt, pepper, honey, creamcheese, coffee), only I have to do is to buy delicious deli at the Whole Foods.
The room is perfectly clean and tidy, charming and spacious. (But I would be more happy if the bed is more comfortable and bathroom has a tab to be soaked in!)
Every staff is very warm and friendly. I hope someday I can stay there again.

These apartments are in a great location in Midtown East, just a couple of blocks from the 53rd St./Lex Ave. subway stop. They are on quiet 55th St. just off Second Ave. with a bunch of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, and pharmacies all within a few blocks. The two apartments I stayed in were both very spacious and comfortable, and well furnished with a small but complete kitchen, free broadband, and cable TV. There's a doorman at most times of day and night, and a very thoughtful touch is the fruit basket, large bottle of juice, and bread and spreads left for you in the apartment. Best of all is the welcome from the wonderful staff, who are very friendly and went out of their way to help me, and kept the place spotless with a regular clean. I'd highly recommend these apartments to anyone, with the real bonus of the nightly rate being less than half the going rate in nearby hotels.

We stayed 16 nights at Altro Sutton Place and were very happy with it. Being ex-New Yorkers who live elsewhere now, we really appreciated how it made us immediately feel like we were living in NY again. Staff are helpful and courteous, even for odd requests like connecting Disney XD, and apartment had all the things we needed for a comfortable stay. We will definitely stay again.

The only negative, and for me it isn't a negative, is that this is New York apartment living and if someone is expecting a full hotel experience they may be disappointed. But, if you are interested in a comfortable, ideally located apartment that allows you to live like a local, this is the place.

We stayed 8 nights at Altro Sutton on our busy sightseeing trip to NY. The apartment was a perfect location, near the subway and sights but far enough away from the busy city to be able to recharge our batteries each day and feel like we were going 'home'. The staff were incredibly kind and went out of their way to make our trip one of the best we've ever had as a family and the accommodation couldn't be faulted.

Positives: Good location & very helpful staff with nice welcoming touches - fruit , bread etc & well appointed kitchen

But if you are looking for modern comfortable apartment this is not it. Dated accommodation, (upstairs apartment noise could be heard late at night, lift noise & outside garbage trucks parked idling between 4-5am). Beds very hard & despite requesting 2 single beds in 2nd bedroom for 2 teenage sons given a queen bed in 2nd room. Poor linen and bed coverings(nylon!)

Unfortunately NYC does not offer much in way of self accommodating apartments compared to other major cities. We chose this option because of need for 2 bed apt - next time we will revert to Affinia apartments which are better quality and if necessary take 2 apartments

Dear Wallaby_tour,

Your comfort is our top priority, and we are incredibly thankful for your input!
Our property is a prewar art deco building with its own traditional charm, that we try to integrate through out the apartment decor to bring out the calm and cozy feeling of "home away from home" in the heart of non-stop moving Manhattan.

We are in constant improvement of our product and services, and will definitely look for ways to further succeed, taking into consideration important aspects of your valuable feedback.

Once again, thank you for your input and we hope to see you again in the future!

This is the second time we have stayed at this property and we were not disappointed with any aspect of arranging and living here for five weeks. After a long 30 hour flight from Australia to New York direct it was great to have everything we required to start our holiday on hand. This included a welcome telephone call from Zebo the Chief Executive Officer to ensure that all we required was provided, this included fresh bread, milk, bread, tea & coffee. Fresh fruit on the dining room table was a nice touch.The location of this hotel is perfect for day to day convenient food shopping, restaurants within easy walking distance. The 57th street across town bus and uptown & down town buses on 2nd & 3rd Street enabled easy access to almost anywhere we wanted to go. The cleanliness and layout of the apartment was exceptional. All the staff were extremely helpful and readily willing to assist us. We highly recommend this apartment for short or long term stays.

Room Tip: On this occassion we were allocated an apartment at the back of the Hotel which proved to be quieter...

It is ideal place for being in NYC! It is close to the Central Park, 5th avenue, and to the Museum of Modern Arts. But what is more important, you will feel good and safe there. What was very pleasant surprise was that I and my two colleagues were upgraded to a bigger apartment, so we really felt great in it. Zebo, who works there, was so helpful - she helped us with wifi connection, and whatever we asked, we got it (for example, we asked for another wine opener, more suitable and easier for women - and we got it in a less than five minutes). What is good, everything that you might need during your stay in NYC is in that apartment, and if it isn't, it will be brought to you. And one more nice thing - upon arrival, we got in our kitchen everything that we needed for breakfast - coffee, tea, bread, jam, butter, cheese, cereals, milk, water and juice! Really professional and nice! Perfect choice both for business and family stay in New York.
