|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Finding a good place to stay in New York City can be difficult. Travelers are constantly at risk for being plagued with overpriced hotels, awful, “off-the-beaten-path” locations, and generally sketchy accommodations.
Good thing you’ve found this fantastic apartment! It’s a trendy studio in a truly amazing neighborhood – When you’re visiting New York, you want to have easy access to everything, and what better place to have that than East Midtown? The building is totally secured and the studio comes equipped with everything you’d need in your home away from home, including a full kitchen and air conditioning (which is actually quite rare in NYC apartments!). The unit comes with a TV, cable, and free wireless internet, so you’ll never have to lose touch with the outside world.
The location seriously could not be better – Major attractions such as the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, NBC Studios, Times Square, and United Nations Plaza are an easy walk away. If you prefer to take the subway or want to venture a little further away, Grand Central Station is only 2 blocks away to direct you where you want to go. So what are you waiting for? Strolls through Central Park, shopping on 5th Ave, and showstoppers in the Theatre District await you…
*There are many public garages nearby if you choose to drive*

Building was probably a 1 star, apartment fine, clean overall except the bathtub was NOT.
Bit of an ordeal getting the correct address and into the building, but ended up okay.
Definitely need to be good with walking, fair distance to get to times square.
I would absolutely not stay here again. My wife and I rented this place for a portion of our 10th anniversary trip, and the pictures are representative of the studio's layout, but not it's cleanliness. This is the first time in 15 years of travelling that we have walked out of a place; and we did so not sure if we would get our money back.
Upon entering, we did our normal hotel/vacation rental checks...the bed, the bathroom, and floor for cleanliness. We found hair, dead bugs, and dead skin on the mattress pad and on the bed. There were urine stains on the bed (under the mattress pad). We found semen stains and potentially mold on both sides of the blanket that was on top of the sheet. These stains were not isolated, they were all over the blanked. We found pubic hairs on the bathroom floor and the walls were disgusting.
We called the 'building manager' and he told us he washed the sheets and blanket last night, clearly he did not. I stood there and ripped him a new one because the apartment was not clean, not well kept, and I would rather sleep on a New York sidewalk than in that bed. We called Tran, the owner, and she told us she needed pictures; we happily provided them.
We also contacted Evolve, the vacation management company, and while they were sympathetic to our situation, there was not much they could do. They could not authorize a refund to us because only the owner is allowed to do so. Please be aware of this when renting through Evolve. Their people were alright, and they offered to find us a new place to stay, but I wasn't taking any chances. I got a great hotel.
Tran, the owner, was not responsive to our needs. She did not return most of our phone calls, and did not get back to Evolve until after we left New York to authorize a refund. I sent her the photos of the apartment 4 hours after we left, and didn't get a refund until a week later, which is unacceptable.
To summarize, this is the only time in 15 years of travelling we walked out of a place, and we did so without the promise of a refund. This place was dirty, not clean, and is not trendy. The only accurate part of the description is that it has a king size bed (but it has hair and bugs and skin in it). I absolutely would not suggest anyone stay here, in fact I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. If you'd like to see the pictures please contact me through homeaway. I would be happy to share them.
The property is a great price and in a convenient location, walking distance to central park and close to grand central station. It does need to be cleaned a more thoroughly, I had to scrub the bathtub before I would bath 1 year old in there and the floor 'mop' had a paper towel in place of the microfibre cloth :\
We had such a great time in NYC, the apartment was perfect. With a king size bed I didn't even know my daughter was in the same bed. The size was efficient for two people. Plenty of storage for all our clothes and suitcases. With the kitchen we were able to cook and reheat our food and make coffee first thing in the morning. Conveniently located to Grand Central Terminal. Walking distance to restaurants Shops etc. The most important we felt safe in this neighborhood. If we plan a trip to visit NYC definitely we stay in this apartment.
We can highly recommend this unit. Very convenient, safe, location. Room was very quiet. Bed was large and comfortable. Entire apartment was very clean, and though small, was plenty big for the two of us.
The resident apartment manager bent over backwards to assist us, which was much appreciated.
The apartment was one block away from Grand Central Terminal, making it easy to get to transportation and shopping. Clean, quiet, safe, large comfortable bed, nice TV. Could not have been better!
