“Wonderful Apt in Convenient Part of NYC”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was such a lovely apartment in an extremely convenient part of town. I stayed here for a few months because I have been working on a project in Brooklyn for work. The hostess was fantastic and so accommodating of my schedule and the multiple extensions of my time there I needed to make. The kitchen was well appointed, bed comfortable as was the living room sofa. A wonderful brick fireplace and overall cool vibe. The apartment was super quiet as advertised, and quite big for a NYC apartment. Highly recommend!!!

I live in Queens. Rented this place for (some of the) extended family visiting for Thanksgiving, mainly to crash for couple of nights after going around in Manhattan. We had everything that we were looking for.

Landlady was super nice and was helpful when we had questions.

“Minor detractions mar an otherwise perfect place”

This place came so close to being a 5-star rental. But the downsides were annoying enough to drop it a star.
Pros:
- Very quiet. The quietest place I've ever stayed in NYC. I slept soundly every night
- Excellent location: Many local restaurants, stores and super convenient to the subway
- Ease of access: One flight up got it away from the street but the climb wasn't punishing.
- Nice landlady: Lara was super nice and met us in the apartment even though it was 11pm on a Sunday Night.
- High ceilings felt spacious even though it wasn't all that large.
- Price: less than the price of a standard room and bigger than many suites.
- Plenty of closet space.
- Limited Glassware. Wineglasses and coffee cups. No regular drinking glasses.
- Good WIFI

Cons:
- No microwave, the one appliance you need on vacation
- No outlets in the bathroom. Had to use my water pick in the kitchen
- No hot water in the kitchen. Made doing dishes tough with no dishwasher.
- Very limited seating. One sofa and two stools. Okay for two, not enough for four. An armchair would be a welcome addition.
- Extremely limited TV selection. 4 networks, ION and PBS/public TV. Can't remember the last time I had this little selection.
- Very dark. Virtually no sunlight except in the bedroom. Also no views.
- No heat control. When the building heat comes on it gets too warm and we had to open all the windows we could to keep it comfortable.
- Really sparse decorating. Lots of blank wall space wears on you after a while.

I guess it is up to each person to decide what it acceptable. We probably spend more time in our room than many people and the minuses were wearing.

We were very very pleased with this property. The owner was very helpful and communicated with us throughout our stay....and prior to arrival. We emailed frequently, and she also provided her cell phone number. She emailed detailed instructions from the airport to the apartment. The apartment is just a few blocks from Union Square, a major subway stop with most lines stopping. The neighborhood was excellent with Whole Food Market, Traders Joe, Best Buy, CVS, Walgreens and many other food markets and shopping boutiques. A city bike station was a block and a half way. We we there 8 days and there were three fun food festivals...street closed to traffic....a real treat. The apartment was exactly what is presented on Flipkey. Very nice with all the items necessary to cook meals. It was very clean and comfortable with plenty of room. The bathroom was excellent stocked with speciality soaps, shampoo and cream rinse, and plenty of nice towels. The apartment is located in mid-Manhattan.....Well from Central Park down. We were just a few blocks from George Washington park....the heart of Greenwich Village. I would strongly recommend the apartment.

I rent the apartment for a few days with some friends. First, Lara was a really great host. When we came, she explained to us the things to do in the area and other stuffs. She was really kind. The apartment was really nice, really comfy. Also, the location was perfect, real close from a subway station, groceries, restaurants, bars etc. Really clean place, towels etc. I absolutely recommand that place for your stay in NYC
