I cannot imagine ever staying in a hotel again after my experience staying at this apartment! The location is perfect for exploring the city -- five minutes in any direction and you can be in SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown and the East Village -- or on the subway up to Central Park and Times Square. The neighborhood is hip like the NYC you see in movies.
The accommodations were clean, comfortable and spacious (by New York standards). The apartment is fully-equipped and we found everything we needed. It is a great retreat after a long day of sightseeing.
Mandy is a lovely hostess and didn't hesitate to recommend great restaurants and bars in the area (there are a ton). I'd stay here again in a heartbeat, not only because it's a fab space and location -- but an excellent bargain for the price (especially when compared to the hotels in the area).
