An Excellent stay in a lovely apartment
My wife and I stayed in apartment 4F 29th September - 6th October. We had an excellent stay and it was great to have an apartment instead of the usual one room hotel room! The location of this block is fantastic, close enough to all the activities but not touristy at all - you feel like you're living like a local. There's also a subway stop within a 2 minute walk.
The area of Murray Hill is lovely, with lovely bars and restaurants in very close proximity. There is an excellent bar literally across the street (Whiskey Rebel) and countless restaurants. And to say how close you are to things, there's very little outside noise.
The apartment itself is very nice, and is clean. The pictures do represent it very well and it is an excellent use of space. Its lovely a full day out to come back and have a living room in New York. Waking up in the morning and fetching a cup of tea and a bagel from round the corner was bliss.
Staysmart (especially Ellen) are excellent, and really assisted as much as they could. Check in was a breeze and everything was explained to us. I can't speak highly enough of them.
If I was to have one criticism it would be that although the apartment is newly refitted, a couple of things need attending to (just the odd finishing touch here and there) but that doesn't spoil the enjoyment of the place. Even the 4 flights of stairs weren't as bad as I expected, except on the first day when I had to carry 2 heavy cases upstairs! Thankfully Ellen happily waited until I got my breath back to check us in. But even after a long day and night out, the stairs never posed a problem.
We will definitely be back in NY in a year or two and will definitely use Staysmart again - possibly the same apartment given how much we loved the location.
Tourists without a Car,
