We arrived around 9p on a Saturday evening, which is prime restaurant time in NY, but we stopped @ Buenos Aires as instructed(right next door to apt) gave them our name and we were upstairs in 5mins. No need to say much about the decor, you see the pictures, no surprises, exactly what you get. Which is fine, b/c how cool does this apt look? Clean linens and clean bathroom. The perfect place to stay for a week of walking NY. Some of the oldest establishments in NYC are a quick walk from apt, which is the main reason we chose it. The apt is 1 blk from Tompkins Square, they have farmer's markets on the weekend, a few blocks from McSorley's Bar, Katz's Deli, Prune Restaurant, I could go on and on. THIS is a PERFECT APT to stay in. Subways a few blks away, no hassle there. Can get a bit noisy on weekend nights, but that's just NYC! Maria is more than accommodating, just a good vibe all the way around. We will ALWAYS want to stay here when we visit NY. East Village is a diverse neighborhood, everything you might need is right around the corner. Drug store, grocery store, corner bodega literally 20 steps to the left from apt door, open 24hrs and they make a good sandwich! I will continue to recommend this apt to all my friends and family. Thanks for a nice place to lay our heads after a long day of NY adventures!
