My third trip but rest of family's first trip to New York City and chose this location because I'd previously stayed in Brooklyn Heights and Greenwich Village so thought I'd try somewhere slightly different. I preferred this lower east side apartment for location so it was a great choice.
The location was really cool with loads of bars and cafe's in a couple of minutes walking distance and still easily walkable/accessible to Soho, Williamsburg, Chinatown etc. had millions of choices to metros so getting further afield was extremely easy.
The apartment was really warm and we didn't need to use the heating (which would not be the case in a NZ house.) it was nice and spacious and the main bedroom and bed was huge.
We travelled with our two daughters as their 21st present and the apt was perfect for us and I can't imagine it not suiting anyone.
Would definitely stay here again if I was to make a fourth trip.
