This apartment lives up to its promise in every respect. It is really well appointed, clean and well-maintained. The cheerful and friendly owner lives on site, and deals promptly and efficiently with any issues. Everything possible is done to make guests feel comfortable. As a retired couple, we love the location: the East Village, packed with restaurants (once again we particularly enjoyed eating at Northern Spy), the East River park just nearby, so much of Manhattan within walking distance, and the subway nearby when we want to go further afield - all with a great environment to come home to! A marvellous holiday.
