We were visiting NYC to see my brother who is going to college in the area and found this 1 bedroom. It was a great price, the people we communicated with were very responsive and flexible, as our bags where delayed, therefor delaying our check in. Great location, convenient to the grocery store, subways, easy walk to fun activities and food: Spin (ping pong bar), Eatily (Italian), and Madison Square park and the Shake Shack!!! Easy to get to Time Square, Little Italy, China Town etc. We walked a lot and it was easy to get everywhere from this location.
The only warning I would have is that they said they did not provide toiletries, however I didn't understand that to be TOILET PAPER, which I thought was odd and a waste that I had to purchase a 4 pack of toilet paper I couldn't use all of while I was there. I also thought it odd that there was no dish soap to wash and maintain their dishes with, which seems in the owners best interest. Finally no TRASH BAGS were provided, which again I would think would be in there best interest by allowing the renter to keep their trash can clean. We also could have used with a few more pieces of bedding. The 2 people on the couch ended up using decorative pillows because there were no extra ones, just the ones on the main bed. There was also just one light blanket for the pull out couch. It was very cold while we were in NYC, and the people sleeping on the couch had to either bundle up or turn the heat way up due to the lack of bedding. It was great that they provided a blow up mattress, however I am glad we didn't need it because there were no sheets or blankets for that anyway.
Overall it was a great experience, but be ware that you will need to purchase a few extra's at the grocery store if you decide to stay here. I would recommend it to anyone though. Good location, quiet neighborhood, the building was well kept and we felt very safe.
