Good budget-option in great location!

We had a really good week in this very convenient apartment in Soho. The location is superb! Just by the metro (going to midtown, uptown and downtown very easily) and in walking distance to Little Italy, Greenwich village and Chinatown. Several nice restaurants in the area, and close to Soho shopping, wining and dining. Very nice!
The apartment itself is basic - but clean and of good size. For the price we paid, we thought it was a good deal. Yes, there are some quirks and it is no Waldorf Astoria, but it was good for our needs and budget. A good base to see New York!
Only a few negatives; we had some problems with the keys at arrival. Apparantly they had been changed or something. Good tip: make sure you as for the owners mobile number before you go. Would have made it easier for us. That said, we found the owner to be very friendly, helpful and it was easy to organise everything by e-mail. Also; found the arrangement slightly odd having to be concerned with what to tell the neighbours if asked - it was a slight worry during our stay. Lastly, we had to buy toilet paper as there was only half a roll for a weeks stay, and the couch in the living room has seen better days. No problem, but puts down the overall impression.
All in all; would recommend it to friends on tight budget because of the great location and price.
