We enjoyed our stay a lot, great location, very safe, Metro Station was around the corner. The host was really helpful during our stay, replied all our calls and questions and came to bring us more towels.
The apartment was a good size, our previous times in New York in ended up in very small apartments which looked nothing like the photos, this time it was fine, not as large we are used to in Europe but very good. The kids enjoyed it too, they slept in separate beds and had more space. Price was OK compared to other similar apartments we wanted to book. Apartment is not luxurious by any means but good value for money.
Overall great experience, lots of nice restaurants in the area, bars, supermarkets. We really like the East Village.
