Recent New York reviews

  • Great

    "Our family of 5 had a wonderful time in New York. The apartment was very central, convenient and huge. It was fantastic. Views were amazing. It was round the corner from the subway and many main attractions. Having the kitchen, washing machine and dryer was ideal. Lots of space for us all. Milton was a gem - thank you for all the advice. We would highly recommend this apartment."
