4 adults and it suited us perfectly
We stayed here 2 weeks ago and had a great vacation, in large part due to the apartment.
5-10 minutes from Times Square, 10 minutes from a decent sized and clean grocery store (a bonus/discount card comes with the house key), less than 5 minutes from a subway station. If you want to be in the center of NYC, you won't be getting much closer and (at the same time) out of harm's way, than this.
The apartment is as advertised, with all the conveniences one needs, most importantly, AC (all rooms), dishwasher, laundry machine and dryer and as it should be in this day and age, internet, which works.
It's clean and comes with plenty of towels.
Naturally, the apartment has been used, this shows itself mostly in the bathroom and the cupboards.
We were there for 12 nights, with 4 adults and it suited us perfectly, with enough closet space to get all of the suitcases out of the way. It would most likely work with 5 as well, but then you'd be a bit more in each other's way.
Outside traffic does make it somewhat noisy (being at the end of the street one is subjected to the useless honking), but earplugs, or just getting over it solves a lot. Besides, it's NY, it's part of its charm, including the die-hard flute player across the street. Haven't heard the neighbors, except for them going out and coming home.
One can cook if one wants to, but don't forget to try out the next street with nothing but restaurants, and of course the 5N hamburger restaurant across the street. So close the wifi still worked. Skip the Galaxy diner, Westway was great for breakfasts.
All our contact went via Fred and he was very accommodating and relaxed, refund was within a day and although we didn't need him during our stay, I'm pretty sure that if one needs something he'd do his best to make sure it happens as fast as possible.
All in all a great place to stay at a great location for a good price. And I doubt you'd find anything better. It felt perfectly safe as well, not unimportant.
