Wonderful time with excellent value!
Our group of 4 (2 couples) stayed here for 6 nights in late January and had a brilliant stay.
Cannot say enough about the apartment. Beautifully furnished with a lovely decor. Had a nice big kitchen with all the appliances and cutlery you would need. The sitting area was very comfortable, nice tv with plenty of channels. Also had free internet, which was very helpful for being able to plan our days in NYC. The bedrooms were very spacious, lots of room to store clothes and shopping bags and very comfortable beds. Bathroom had a good shower and a washer and dryer also, which became very handy.
We were all very surprised at the size of the apartment, it was a lot bigger and more spacious than we would have anticpated.
The area and location was fantastic. It is right beside a subway station with 4 lines, 2 of which were express, so it was only 3 or 4 stops to all the shops on 5th avenue, times square, Penn station, etc. The area around the apartment was also excellent. There was a local supermarket for food shopping, a few newsagents, atms and little delis/cafes. Close by was Colombia university which had loads of little resteraunts at really reasonable prices.
Finally, I would have to thank Michael, who was always fantastic at answering any queries we had. He has an abundance of local knowledge and was able to advise us on good places to eat out and general know-how. He really was so polite and friendly and really made us feel so welcome and appreciated.
From being in New York before and staying in hotels, I can say that the apartment was such a great alternative. You get much more space, more freedom to cook your own meals, a more relaxing experience, and from what I can tell, at a much cheaper rate.
We would most definately return to Michael's apartment, really cannot say enough about it, or him. Wonderful apartment, with a wonderful owner.
