Excellent location to enjoy New York's daily life

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 4 friends travelling to NY in October 2009. We had choosed the apartement for its central location + its reasonable price. Located on the Lexington av. a few blocs from the Empire State B, and more closer to a subway station, approximatively 20 to 30 min walk from Time Square, the appartement fits perfectly for first timers in the Big Apple as well as for more experienced tourists in NY. We felt at home in this really spacious appartement and especially enjoyed the open kitchen and dining room, the bedrooms and bathrooms. It is the perfect place to relax after museum, shopping, to have a break before getting out again for the evening... The neighboroughood offers everything needed to jump into the daily life of New Yorkers. And, Lucia, the owner, is allways ready to help her guests.

En résumé, pour les lecteurs francophones : un appart vraiment spacieux (2e étage sur 3), très bien situé, très bon quartier, confortable (chambres et salles de bain très bien). Et une hôtesse accueillante et serviable.

Lots of space, handy to transport

  • 5 of 5

We can recommend this apartment. The three flight walk up is not for the elderly or disabled but for everyone else, once you reach the apartment,  you have everything you need. Two large bedrooms each with a large bathroom. One bedroom has a king bed,  the other has two queen beds plus a king single. There is a decent dining room and a separate sitting room with a good size working kitchen. The washing machine and dryer are relatively new and we're a boon for our 10 day stay.  It has a balcony with ordinary views but was handy for sitting outside for pizza and drinks. Plenty of storage throughout the bedrooms and apartment generally. Air conditioner is noisy but it works well. Two subway stations handy at 28th and 33rd Sts allowed us to move around easily. We were met on arrival and departure at the agreed times - always essential when catching trains and planes.

Charm plus Location, plus Spacious Rooms all in fully equipped Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five senior women meeting in NYC from points east and west. This space was perfect for our needs. Everyone had a bed with only one share, a large kingsize. Having two bathrooms a must . The apartment was spotless. Nancie is the caretaker and a delight as well as being very conscientous, and helpful . The stairs are a challenge, but really only with suitcases. We "ubered" our way for four days. Had a wonderful time ending with the bombing drama.

Excellent location with a great, spacious apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for a week, two years in a row for our family visiting from out of town. It's a spacious apartment (for us, for 6 ppl), and a great location for sightseeing - within walking to the Madison Square Park, Union Square, eateries on Park Ave, and many more. Some of the recent updates to the apartment made the apartment brighter. The deck is a plus!!

Home away from home in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (children aged 14, 10 and 7) stayed in Lucia's penthouse apartment for two weeks in June/July 2016. We were very pleased with our choice. The apartment is very generous in size, the bedrooms had lots of room for storage/luggage and to move around in. It looked nicer than the photos, in particular the bedrooms have been freshly painted and tastefully decorated. It was great having two bathrooms and the two bedrooms separated by the living areas in the middle. The air conditioning, washer and dryer worked great. We enjoyed breakfasts on the balcony at the back too. It was handy to have a fully functioning kitchen for breakfasts and the odd dinners. Although there are many good restaurants to choose from just outside which we enjoyed. There are always people outside, so it is very safe and it is easy to catch a cab. The subway is only two blocks away and very easy to use. There is some street noise from the front room, but that is New York. Earplugs helped me, my husband didn't need them. I think Lucia has another apartment on the second floor where the master is at the back and the second room at the front which may suit you. We enjoyed seeing the view of the Empire State building from the front room, and the different colours it was lit up with each night. You can walk to many places from here . The stairs were not an issue, you do lots of walking in New York anyway. Lucia was easy to deal with, and her housekeeper Nancy was helpful too in suggesting some good nearby restaurants ( The chicken at Pio Pio was amazing) and organising a mid stay clean. Would definitely come here again and recommend this to family and friends. it was great value for money.
