Recent Manhattan reviews

  • Excellent location

    "We stayed in Studio 3. Irina was prompt in responding to our email enquiries before our arrival. The photos accurately reflected the apartment, it was clean and modern. Irina greeted us at the apartment, answering questions and telling us about the area. Excellent location with great restaurants close by and easy walking distance to major attractions and subway. With two teenagers, we coped ok in the small space. We ate often down on the corner at Zen Palate vegetarian restaurant and Yum Yum Too Thai, also Amy's Cafe for breakfast and Cafe Jolie for great crepes. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and happy to recommend."

  • Perfect Location and Loft!

    "My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights on our 1st Anniversary Trip this Easter weekend. Cooper was extremely helpful in getting us in the loft, giving us recommendations on where to eat and what to do. Honestly you really don't have to leave a 4 block radius from this place if you don't want to as everything is right at your fingertips. The 6 line was on the 1 minute away to get uptown, very convenient. The loft is beautiful, and comfortable for 2 of us. The stairs can be a bit tiring after a full day of walking, but it's worth it. We will be coming back again."

  • Most cooperative owner!!

    "The apartment was just as described, very comfortable for a family of 4 and the owner provided all the things we needed. He was extremely cooperative and responded quickly to all our needs even the ones who were out of his direct responsibility. The location was near attractions and subway stations and when we walked back late at night it was always very safe and with many shops open. Most recommended!!!"

  • Great location, but noisy apartment

    "My friends and I spent two days and two nights at the UWS apartment. The location could not have been better. Walking distance from all of the places we were in town to visit. And in a wonderful neighborhood close to Central Park. That's the good. The not so good. The apartment is in the middle of a row of brownstones so there is not very much natural light. And while the kitchen has been beautifully updated the rest of the unit is lagging behind. The worse part of the stay was the lack of sleep due the noisy neighbors upstairs. While I understand that these are vacation rentals and it was the weekend I was willing to put up with a fair amount of disturbance up until midnight (and I relayed this to the landlord) however our lovely upstairs neighbors walked aka stomped around until 2 a.m, every night/morning even after I had express my concerns. Perhaps at the end of the day it was not their fault? The apartments are not well insulated so you can hear everything. The next day when we were checking out so were they. And it was a herd of them. Tons of kids and adults. Who was up until 2 am stopping around? I couldn't tell you. The kids looked to young to be up that late, and the adults looked too old... Anyway an other wise splendid trip was soured by the lack of a peaceful night(s) rest. I have stayed in VRBO before in NYC and have not run into this issue. Perhaps that's due to the fact that other renters were owners. These places seem to be solely for the use as rental units. Therefore why be concerned about noise if you don't live there? If you're looking for a great location and a good price and don't need to sleep this is the place for you. Other wise I'd say keep looking."

Manhattan Travel Tips

Known as the cultural and economic hub of the United States, Manhattan is one of the five boroughs that make up New York City. Even though it’s the smallest of the five, it’s personality and "never sleep" attitude has made it one of the most iconic and cosmopolitan locales on earth.

Manhattan is full of history, culture, excitement and thrilling experiences. It’s the home of famous landmarks and economic staples. From the United Nations to the Chrysler Building, Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange and the glittering lights of Broadway, there is more than enough to satisfy every traveler who visits the island no matter what their interests are.

Whether you hail a taxi, take to sidewalk or hop on the city's famous subway, days can be filled with perusing through different shops, dining at the finest restaurants and seeing some of the best theater in the country.

Areas of Manhattan to Explore

Broadway: This neon-tinged boulevard is best known for its portion that houses block after block of venues in the theater district. It’s the oldest north-south thoroughfare in New York City. The theater district, also known as the Great White Way, is home to several Broadway theater that produce large-scale musicals and plays that attract theater goers from all around the world.The bar is set very high in Manhattan when it comes to the stage, so even if you venture to an off-Broadway production, no doubt you will be impressed.

Central Park: When you think of Manhattan, chances are images of Central Park come to mind. This massive green space has been at the heart of the Big Apple since the mid-19th century. In 1962, Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark. It’s the perfect place to experience nature and get some fresh air away from the skyscrapers. You can wander through here on an afternoon stroll, enjoy a picnic, take a carriage ride or play a pick-up game of baseball. Children will enjoy a ride on the carousel or playing at one of the 21 playgrounds in Central Park.

Rockefeller Center: In the winter, Rockefeller Center features the country’s most famous Christmas tree under which people can enjoy ice skating around the rink or sip hot chocolate. It’s also the home of Radio City Musical Hall and the popular Rockettes, who perform a Christmas spectacular as well as other shows year-round.

Greenwich Village: For all things offbeat, there is no better spot in Manhattan than Greenwich Village. Once home to beatniks and hippies in the 1960s, this neighborhood hasn't lost its alternative edge over the years. Pop into an Irish pub, live music venue or dive bar, grab a slice of authentic New York pizza or enjoy one of the best collections of ethnic cuisine in the country.{I added this to include more of the island geographically}

Times Square: Also in Midtown you’ll find Times Square, a major commercial intersection at Broadway and 7th Avenue stretching from West 42nd to West 47th streets. Known as the “Crossroads of the World,’ Times Square is situated near the theater district and has some of the busiest pedestrian traffic in the country. If you’re in the city on New Year’s Eve, there’s no more famous place to watch the ball drop than Times Square itself.

Famous Landmarks to See in Manhattan

Empire State Building: Standing 102 stories tall in Midtown, the Empire State Building is hard to miss, and has become one of the cultural symbols of New York as well as the United States. It’s considered a structural marvel designed in the Art Deco style and is one of the seven wonders of the modern world, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. Visitors can take in panoramic views of Manhattan from the 86th or the 102nd floor observation decks. The breathtaking urban vistas here are considered to be very romantic and created the setting for many famous love scenes in movies like "An Affair to Remember" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

Statue of Liberty: The ultimate symbol of freedom and America, no trip to Manhattan is complete without a visit to the State of Liberty. It was designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and given to the United States as a gift from France. Lady Liberty captured the spirit of American progress, as she welcomed immigrants and visitors to the United States through Ellis Island during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Visitors enter through the statue’s base and can climb the stairs to the crown to take in the views of the Manhattan skyline.

Central Park Zoo: For an activity the whole family can love, visit the Central Park Zoo. This wild attraction is the perfect place to witness some of your favorite creatures up close and personal. The main exhibit areas range from polar to temperate to tropic. You can experience a rainforest with fruit bats and anteaters, the penguin house, the polar bear pool and an ant colony. There’s also a children’s zoo for younger kids to enjoy.
