Luxury Manhattan Studio located on Lower Madison Ave. The decor is fabulous with turn of the century architectural details!
The Studio is a 3 flight of stairs walk-up. There is not an elevator, so don't pack to heavy! The Studio is in the rear of the building, so its very quiet (except for the heat radiators in the winter which is typical in older new york apartments)
You will feel like you are staying at a rich uncles apartment! The location is just a few blocks from Madison Park and the Empire state building. You can virtually walk to any destination from this central location!
I am a New York based Interior Designer and this apartment was created as a guest apartment for my clients.
This neighborhood is so wonderful and the location is extremely convenient
Unlike a hotel, this studio is perfect for those travelers looking for the privacy of a New York apartment but with the comfort of a Hotel!
We spent 7 nights in this apartment and were so pleased with our choice of accommodations! The bedding and linens are lovely and the bed was so comfortable that we enjoyed excellent sleep. The apartment was very quiet, in fact, no noise to speak of, from either the outside or other tenants. The location is fantastic! We walked everywhere with ease: Empire State Building, Times Squares, Central Park, Broadway, the USS Intrepid, Broadway and the High Line. This is conveniently located to major subway stations such as Penn Station, and Grand Central, as well as Herald Square which we used most frequently. Miss K's Italian Eatery is very convenient for essentials like snacks and bottled water when you don't want to carry them very far. We found Wine 30 nearby and enjoyed a fabulous meal experience. It is certainly worth going to. We would say the same about Ben & Jack's Steakhouse, which was a great meal and reasonably priced. Both Wine 30 and Ben & Jacks are within a few minutes walking distance. The apartment kitchen is small but well appointed. The bathroom was clean and lovely and had perfect water pressure. The owners have put so much thought into what a guest would need (Thank you!). I would say if mobility is an issue the stairs might cause difficulty. Luckily my husband was able to manage the suitcases without issue. We really appreciated the fact that the apartment was located out of the 'hustle and bustle' of Times Square, returning each evening to a quiet neighbourhood. We found the area to be safe and had no issues with returning back to the apartment late at night. The photos well represent the space and furnishings.
This was our very first time renting through VRBO and we could not be any more pleased. From beginning to end the experience perfect! Angela was extremely helpful and patient with my texts, emails and questions. The apartment looks EXACTLY like in the pictures. We were met by the front door as expected with the key, super easy to find! The stairs are interesting....I honestly would not have been able to get my heavy luggage up the stairs without my husband. Those stairs were the ONLY minus. The bed is luxurious and comfortable, great pillows and sooooooo quiet! The location was perfect, just a couple of blocks to Starbucks, the subway and if we leaned a little out the window we could see the Empire State Building. I would have absolutely NO hesitation in booking again. So much better than a hotel. If you like wine, check out Wine:30, just a few blocks away. Sit at the bar! The staff was friendly and conversational. Food was fun and fabulous. If you like beer, you MUST walk to The Ginger Man......A M A Z I N G selection! BBQ? Blue Smoke, also a few blocks away. Thank you Angela!
From the start everything was perfect. Paying for the rental went very smoothly. I was even able to get the keys to the apartment by mid morning which was a great help to me. The pictures of the apartment equaled the actual beauty of apartment. Being that the apartment is in the rear of the building on the forth floor it's extremely peaceful.
The little touches made it an even more of a pleasurable experience. For example we had a bottle of wine waiting for us In the fridge.
The neighborhood was extremely safe and centrally located. A few blocks from Macy's and the Empire State Building. Close to subways and buses run along Madion Ave all the time.
I am a former New Yorker, you will not go wrong renting this apartment
We were in the apartment from 29 October to 5 November, we found agnificamente, the apartment is quiet and very clean, extremely courteous and owners, the decor is attractive and well equipped for those coming from abroad like us, strategic position to reach every location of the city D-C
My husband and I spent 4 nights here last month and it was perfect. I use VRBO all the time and have rented many apartments in the city. The location is perfect for accessing all areas of the city by foot, subway, bus and taxi. The 3 floor walk up made me feel less guilty about all the food I consumed daily while out and about. The interior design is GORGEOUS. The bed is both beautiful and comfortable. The attention to design details was really lovely. Your "rich uncle's apartment" is a wonderfully accurate description. It is by far the quietest apartment I've ever been in in the city.The owners were available and accommodating for our early check in and any questions we had about the apartment during our stay. This ranks up there with my favourites and I look forward to renting again.
