Travelling as three women, it is often hard to find accommodation that suits our needs - but Mike's apartment was just what we needed after four weeks on the road around the USA! As other reviews state, it's not a 5-star hotel, but if that's what you want, you're missing out on a whole lotta NYC experiences. This apartment is in the perfect location for seeing the city - we counted four subway stations within a 5-minute walk, covering everywhere we wanted to see. Loads of little bars and local stores, and Katz's Deli (YUM!) just a couple of blocks away. The apartment was well-equipped, and had everything we needed and more (even managed to find duct tape and scissors to repair a suitcase!). It was great having space, and the outdoor area was a blessing. We would have loved the outdoor area to be more like the pics (it's a little tattier and messy) but it did the job and having that much space to enjoy was amazing. All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment anyone travelling to NYC.
