APARTMENT #2

Gramercy Park Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 2 bathroom in a great location!

These apartments are just what you need for a great time in NYC! These apartments have been completely good renovated with new everything. Each apartment looks exactly the same. Each has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a sleeper sofa in the living room.

Great location!: Located in the Gramercy Park region of Midtown Manhattan, this location offers all the convenience, while being surprisingly quiet (as quiet as you can expect from midtown Manhattan, I suppose). The subways are about 2-3 blocks away, and the immediate neighborhood offers tons and tons of restaurants, and services such as nails salons, dry cleaners and laundries, bars, coffee shops, and even a supermarket in a 5 block radius. The train station is the 23rd Street and Park Avenue subway station what will connect to the 6 train, or for a 5 minute walk to 17th Street, you can catch the 4,5,6,N,Q,R,W,L in the Union Square Station, which can take you to times square, grand central, Wall Street, or Soho in about 5 minutes.

Have the best of both worlds!: Don't stay in Times Square with all of the tourist traps! Stay in a true New York apartment, live like a New Yorker, yet have Times Square and all of the other major tourist attractions be a subway stop away.

All of our guests have raved about this location for its historic charm, local convenience, and easy access to the rest of Manhattan.

The neighborhood is great with restorants,bars and facilities (24 hrs Namu Deli its very helpfull ) with the metro at 3 blocks
I trully recommend this place to my friends
The odd? there´s no elevator, but I learn it´s very usual in this tipe of building in NYC
So if you don´t like to climb ask for the first floor

Kjo është hera ime e parë që unë mora me qira një apartament për një udhëtim në NEW YORK CITY. Apartamenti është shumë e bukur, e pastër dhe e vendosur në një zonë shume te mire në New York City. StaysmartNYC ka një shërbim të shkëlqyer të konsumatorëve dhe ata ishin shumë të dobishme gjatë qëndrimit tim. Unë do të rekomandoja për të gjithë miqtë e mi. Faleminderit dhe shpresoj që tju shoh përsëri!

This is my first time i rent an apartment for a trip in new yourk city. the aparmtent is very beautiful, clean and located at a great area in new york city. StaysmartNYC has a excellent customer service and they were very helpful during my stay. I would recommend to all my friends. Thank You and hope to see you again!
Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and your kind words. It was a pleasure having you as our guests. Please let us know when you're back in NYC!

Uniformly unpleasant

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 31, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We do not recommend this property or broker. This property is not secure.

When my wife arrived at the building with our children around 11:00 am she found the front door unlocked. She walked up to the third floor apartment. The woman from Staysmart who was waiting in the apartment was surprised when they knocked on the door. She asked how they got in. She had no explanation for why the door would be unlocked. She did not even understand how the exterior door worked. My wife began to realize that the building was not secure.
After a few phone calls and fiddling with the door the woman figured out how to reset the door mechanism so that it automatically locks after being opened. She suggested that a child might have accidentally switched the setting. My wife found this to be farfetched; it seemed that someone had purposely changed the door setting to stay unlocked upon exiting.
My wife had just arrived from Penn Station with four children and had nowhere to go. She ignored her reservations and paid the balance due in cash as was requested. After that transaction she was told the keypad code.

The method for generating the codes is ridiculously simple. My wife was told that the reason for the simple code is that if a traveler forgets their code they can quickly figure it out. Anyone could figure out anyone else's code as well.
Upon hearing the code and putting it together with the unlocked front door my wife realized that it would not be safe to sleep there with the children.

The building reeks of stale cigarette smoke. This smell seeps into the apartment. The apartment was advertised as "non smoking only - low allergen environment". Our older daughter has asthma; we take poor air quality seriously.

The response to our concerns was slow and unhelpful. At 12:25 I called Ellen and requested our money back as we could not stay in the apartment. She said she had to check with a colleague. When I didn't hear from her I sent another email at 1:51 asking for a reply. At 2:49 I got a reply from Damon. He was adamant that the contract be honored and no compromise could be made. We moved to a nearby hotel.

My wife's assessment of the apartment is that it is spartan. There are too few towels and no extra blankets. There are particle board wardrobes instead of closets. The kitchen is spare. There is no broom. Everything about the place feels stingy.

P.S. My wife walked by the building at 9:30 the next morning and the front door was unlocked.
Owner's Response: All of the reasons the customer cites were, or could have been addressed. Further, we even suggested that we move them into another apartment if they were still unsatisfied, but we later realized that they moved to a hotel within an hour of their arrival and were simply trying to make excuses to try and get a refund for not honoring their contract.

Specifically in regards to their concerns:
1) They argued that the building door was broken and that it was unsafe and that is why they needed to move. We realized that the door wasn't broken, but rather, that someone switched the latch on the side of the door to unlock. We therefore switched it back and reached out to the other tenants in the building advising them that they should not change the main door setting (there are only 3 apartments in the whole building btw).
2) The smoke smell in the hallways was not cigarette smoke. Our rep did notice, however that there was a very faint cooking smell that did NOT permeate into the apartment.
3) Not an hour passed in between correspondence. I would consider this very responsive. The customer called at around 12:30PM complaining that the door was broken and must be fixed immediately. We sent a repairman very shortly, only to realize that the door wasn't broken, but that the latch was just switched to unlock. On 1:51PM, he sent another email demanding his money back. At 2:48PM, after gathering all the facts from out maintenance manager and check in rep, we advised him that the door was not broken, and that it was too late to get a refund, but if he gave the apartment and neighborhood a try, we were confident that he would find it fantastic. (BTW, Julia Roberts lives in the building directly behind this one. Gramercy Park is one of the safest and nicest neighborhoods in Manhattan. We have NEVER gotten a complaint about security in any of our Gramercy Park neighborhoods).
4) The Keypad code was simple can be programmed any way the guest wants. This was never brought to our attention as something that he had any issues with. Had we known, we could have re-programmed the lock and issued them another code that they could chose themselves!

We tried working with the customer all day up until 4PM when we suggested that they move to another apt, when the customer finally admitted that he had already moved out! This is not fair to us. We are happy to try and work with an unhappy guest, but they have to want to work with us too!

Clean, comfortable but sparse

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 28, 2011
  • Stayed: Jun 2011
We just got back from our recent trip to NYC. The apartment was very nice, clean and comfortable, BUT sparse would be the best descriptor for this place. There were six of us and we had been planning on eating in a few times, but found the kitchen to be lacking - of adequate dishes, pots and pans, glasses (most were chipped or cracked). While it was not a huge item, it was disappointing. We have used services like Homeaway to plan other trips, this was the most lacking of normal amenities. No paper products, no broom to at least sweep up and the pillows were as flat as a board. The small dining table has 3 chairs and sorry, but the sofa DOES NOT fit 4 comfortably - unless it is 4 children. The pull out was very uncomfortable and squeeked everytime you moved.

The area is great. The merchants were wonderful. I would still recommend the place, but be aware of what is lacking. My biggest complaint was with City Lights. I would e-mail them a couple of questions and they would answer part but not all. My lease said late check in was at 7pm. and received an e-mail reminding us of the $150 fee for late check in. When I asked what time that was I was now told 6pm. When I called and said that was not what my lease said, I was curtly told they had changed it. They were anything but helpful. The link to see how to open the lockbox, did not work and they did not respond when I asked about that. The other half of our party arrived first and could not figure out how to get in. Whoever owns this place - I would recommend a new real estate company to represent you. They do a poor job.

Awesome alternative

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: May 18, 2010
  • Stayed: May 2010
We just got back from our NY trip and we stayed at this 3rd Ave. apt. We were six women in for a long weekend and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. From the beginning, my dealings with the staff at City Lights was nothing but professional. The girl that checked us in was so helpful. They were also very easy to get in touch with while we were there too. The inside of the apt. we stayed in (second floor) was completely remodeled with brand new furniture, two baths and a full kitchen if needed. There are two subway lines nearby, the 6 line (which is about a 5 minute walk) and the NRW line (which is about a 9 minute walk). There were many restaurants, bars and businesses right along 3rd Ave. which made it very convenient. There were only a few things that I think should be brought up. This was brought up in a previous review and that is if you are staying in the bedroom that has it's windows along 3rd ave. there can be a lot of traffic noise during certain periods and for a city that doesn't sleep, neither does the traffic. Secondly, the first floor is no longer vacant, it is now occupied by a small little bar called "The Exchange". If you are staying on the second floor apt. BEWARE of the "BOOM BOOM" that the base from the music creates. Once you fall asleep then it's not a problem, but trying to fall asleep with that base going is kind of hard. So, make sure you request a 3rd or 4th floor apt. Lastly, make sure that you request a unique code for your door leading into the apt. Currently, they use your checkout date for your code, but the problem with that is, that if anyone else in the bldg is checking out the same day they have the same code. One of the other tenants walked right into our apt. I immediately called them and they are very aware of the situation and said they would find a way to remedy that situation immediately. Just be sure to ask them when checking in. If I go back to NY I would have no problem staying with them again.

Car: not necessary

If you're looking to stay in a safe area with many restaurants and shops, but not the high traffic and tourist traps of Times Square, then this apartment is for you. Gramercy Park is known to be a quiet, more affluent area of NYC. It is close to the subways and walking distance to Union Square. Many Hollywood stars live in the very same block, so keep your eyes peeled.
