The apartment was so disappointing. We would have left but due to family commitments and timing we stayed.
Here are a few of the issues:
Bathtub had peeling paint
The shower water was either scalding hot or cold - we had to take cool showers
The lights kept flickering on and off - some were not operational
The locks to the apartment were not all working; only one flimsy lock as you went out
The rug in the bedroom was dirty
The towel and hand cloth provided for one person (when they knew a couple was coming) when brought to the attention of the manager a day later another set of towels was provided- both sets were musty
The bed was made with wrinkled bed sheets
There was no ventilation in the kitchen for cooking purposes
The furniture was worn and shabby
The kitchen was without a drying rack for dishes
The hallways in the building were dark and dingy
There were no proper lights for reading
And though the property manager Ceci was pleasant and left a bottle of wine and chocolates and chips this could not makes this apartment “cozy” as described.
We travel worldwide, usually staying in vacation rentals. We come twice a year to NYC and this was by far the most disappointing place we have ever stayed. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
