The House: 2 Stars at most. Rental Company: 0 Stars

Location, Location, Location the apartment was in excellent spot, so close to everything, but that's the only good thing there was about it.

The entrance was down a small dirty hallway and up a few flights of narrow stairs. The photo is a bit misleading it shows the apartment looking lovely, new and bright. It is not at all, it was clean but could do with a refurbish, the sofa is split and grubby and could be replaced and a splash of paint on the walls would help. Rooms are very small and make it difficult when trying to live out of a suitcase.

Oven only opens half way as it hits the wall. There is nowhere to stack dishes to wash and dry.

The bathroom really small and the shower needs fixing it is either really hot or really cold, could do with a shelf hanging on the wall to put toiletries. A retractable clothesline in the shower would be an excellent idea (like in hotel rooms) somewhere to hang wet towels also. There was no hand towels, face cloths or tea towels. We had to buy these. The owner Robert was lovely although I only spoke to him on the phone. The lady who greeted us was nice but didn't have much information.

If we were to visit again I would will probably opt hotel next time.

I would struggle to recommend this apartment in the state it is in at the moment, unless you are looking for a great location.

The position of the apartment was excellent , you definately could not beat that.

The entrance to the apartment was via a narrow and dirty and grim looking hallway.

The apartment has very little storage and we lived out of suitcases all week which made very hard work as there were 5 of us.

The apartment was clean and very warm but needs decorating .

The sofa is split and grimy and needs replacing.

The photo shows the apartment looking lovely and bright. It is not at all.

The shower is either scalding or freezing and the bathroom really small. The plug on the sink won't let out the water properly.

Had to wait in freezing cold for ages for greeter who was pleasant but gave us no info at all.

Owner was helpful via mobile.

We love NYC and the people are special.

Would love to visit again but will book hotel next time.

I would not recommend this apartment or the rental company.

After having to apply for deposit refund , we received by cheque ( which cost again to cash ) 4 weeks later.

Very poor.

Well-located spot to call home for a few days!!!

  • 5 of 5

The place is just great - well-located for visiting NY, clean and has everything you can think of when away from home. A huge plus is a housekeeping option, so you can choose whether you want to do it yourself or have the things arranged/cleaned by staff. The kitchen is supplied with tableware and all sorts of appliances, still you can easily opt to eat out as there are tons of dining establishments around. Public transportation is close by, too. Thus, everything went great, we won't doubt to be back!

Great Location !!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Robert the owner, is really awesome and considerate in making sure all of our needs were met and that we were comfortable. There were 8 of us staying at this apt and it worked out much better than anticipated. The location is excellent and the port authority is across the street so we didn't even need to rent a car. Walking distance to theaters, movies, attractions, great restaurants, etc. Would definitely stay there again!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this Apartment is great. A short walk one direction to Time Square and Hell Kitchen the other direction. A subway station is very close which we used a lot. We used the free Subway app. everyday to help decide how we were getting around to the farther destinations. Robert the owner is wonderful. He provides a nice flower arrangement and great espresso machine. There are 3 bedrooms with nice beds in each (one has 2 beds), so we had plenty of room for sleeping. Just as the hotel rooms are small in NY, so are the apartments. Things to be aware of as you make your choice:

1. The rental company made me feel as if this was a potential fraud. The VRBO listing shows credit cards are acceptable; however the rental company makes it very clear they are not accepted. The rental is a series of events which feels like you are being piece milled in an unfriendly way. For example, we agreed on a price and dates. When we signed the rental agreement, so the fine print began. Payment is by wire, etc and must be received in 24 hours or you lose the hold on the property. Really? Luckily we were given a little more time due to a weekend and me trying to do more research on whether this was legit or not. There is a management fee which a credit card can be used and not sure why this payment has to be separate and it states you pay it and don't get it refunded if something else changes. For future renters, I hope credit card is an option since that works so easily for all other VRBO rentals.

1a. You actually have to request your damage deposit to be returned. Really again? What a way to treat your customers.

2. The unit is on the 3rd floor, and there is no elevator. The entry, halls and stairs haven't been updated in probably 30+ years and they are very narrow. The stairs are steep, so get ready for a hike. Nonetheless, if you can't walk and do stairs, then you shouldn't visit NY, since that is all we did while there.

3. The picture makes the apt looks very new and updated. It is still nice and works, but the Apartment is dated just like a number of the hotels. I am just trying to set expectations since I was a little shocked with all the above since this was my first experience like this when using VRBO.

Best thing EVER

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is…absolutely amazing! A few friends and I had always wanted to visit New York but couldn’t figure out how to get us all in the same place without spending a million dollars on 3 cramped, old hotel rooms. This apartment was PERFECT! First off, it was gorgeous; super cute with a great layout and all the room and privacy we needed! It was also in a phenomenal location; we could literally walk a block to be standing in the heart of Time Square. Not to mention being surrounded by all the great shopping and Broadway shows. The trip wouldn’t have been NEARLY as good if we hadn’t found this place! Def coming back…soon!
