We arrived at 5pm (two hours after check in time) and found the apartment had not been cleaned from the previous renter. Trash cans overflowing, mess everywhere. Very offputting. They apologized and told us they would have it cleaned asap. We found a coffee shop nearby and waited... and waited... and waited. By 8pm, my 5 year old was exhausted so we headed back and called again. The cleaner was still in the apartment, but we were told it was okay to go in. The cleaner had done a great job and the apartment was clean, but... went to the kitchen to make some food and the stove didn't work - none of the burners. Called Omri again and was told there was no gas in the apartment, but that there was a two burner plug in stove there for our use. The ad for this apartment STILL today shows that there is a full kitchen with stove, this is a lie! You cannot cook for a family of four on a two burner plug in stove (believe me I tried). We were told to speak to the supervisor (Orly) at this point, and we asked to be moved to a different apartment. She couldn't help and instead offered a 50% discount on our rate. We accepted since the chances of finding another place in NYC at such short notice was zero. But we were not happy about it. The pictures show this apartment to be nice and new looking - it's not! It's old, there is mold/rot on the walls and the paint is all peeling off; there is a strong awful smell in the hallway of rotten eggs/stinky socks; the bathtub takes FOREVER to drain; the stove doesn't work; there are NO instructions for the apartment - we had to figure out the cable/tv, had to ask for a wifi password, had to ask what to do on check out with the key; it is VERY noisy at night, being between two Irish bars - lots of cussing, drunk people every night of the week. Oh and there was a huge dead cockroach in the closet.
The good points - plenty of linens/bedding, beds are very comfortable, very quick response to emails, location is fantastic. Still... would NOT recommend at all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and detail message for your stay. As you know (and wrote) we do the best we can to give the best service for all our guests and with you we had an issue that was out of our control and is to do with the building itself. That is why we have a 2 burner stove that other guests find great for them as each one has different needs. In regards to the cleaning I can only appologize again for it and say there is no excuse for the place not to be clean on time (and you do mention she did a good job at least). As for the other issues we will make sure they are fixed as soon as we can but you can see in other reviews that most people realy like the place and the location. As a result for these unforeseen issues we did offer you a %50 discount on the price that you had accepted because it's important for us that all of our guests will feel at home.
We do hope to see you again with us and thank you for your business Thanks Sam
We were upgraded to the Midtown West apartment, very close to this one. It was in a nice, quiet area. It was very safe, and close to grocery stores and the subway. It was relatively quiet at night, and not on a terribly busy street. We were walking distance from Times Square (20 min) and Central Park.
The apartment was compact but very clean and functional. We greatly enjoyed our stay, and I would rent again.
What a great place to stay in New York! I recently stayed here with my 3 sisters for 8 days. This apartment fit our needs perfectly. It was plenty big enough for the 4 of us. The kitchen is tiny, for sure, but the large table and living room area made up for that. The beds were comfortable. Plenty of linens. Enough closet space and dresser space for all of us. Close to two subway stations. The pictures make the apartment look newer but it's definitely a bit older but that was fine with us. We would most definitely stay here again. Great location. Great service and very easy to work with. Super prompt email communication before our trip and excellent response time during our stay. Thank You!

Thank you Shilan for a wonderful first time stay. You guys made everything seamless. Definitely would a) use you again and b) recommend you guys again. We stayed at the Midtown West location and it was perfect to get to the subway and an easy walk to Time Square. Great food in area too.
