Convenient location/ Nice neighborhood/ Clean
This studio apartment is clean and is a perfect size for a couple's weekend away. It is within walking distance to very cute clubs/ bars and cafes. And try the ramen place across the street!! It is DELISH!!
Great quite location!
It’s cute and easy to excess! Walking distance to Central Park and Time Square. A lot of good food spots in the neighborhood. We had a great time in New York city!
Spartan but liveable and convenient
This studio apartment was in the scary sounding neighborhood Hell's Kitchen, a neighborhood which WAS scary not that long ago but now feels very safe. The location is very convenient to Times Square and Midtown, and also close to several subway stops so it was easy to get around the city. There is a convenience store at 9th and 51st, which was good (if a little pricey) for groceries. The apartment itself was fine for my stay (and would be for a couple's stay); it would not be good for three or four people. It of course is
bigger than midtown hotel rooms that cost much more. The furniture is functional but spare and the kitchen is minimally stocked in terms of cookware, table settings, and spices. The owner said she preferred being contacted via texts but once I had paid for the apartment (which I did several months before my trip) she did not respond to different texts I sent requesting information about check in, etc. I would stay here again on another visit to NYC.
Great location, tired property/property owner
This location on 51st St. between 9th & 10th Ave was ideal for a 5-nite stay with my wife and 16 year-old daughter (the trip was a sweet-16 birthday present). As other have written, the choices of dining are outstanding. I would recommend Ippudo for gourmet ramen (they have discounted lunch specials), and Shimizu for sushi - both are just down 51st St. about a block east. Wish we'd had more time to sample the other fine restaurants within a couple blocks!
And do not miss the Amish Market on 9th Ave for perhaps the best groceries/prepared meals in NYC, at reasonable prices!
Broadway theaters are a 10-minute walk, and nearest Metro station is a 5 minute walk. (Dear Evan Hansen was our all-time favorite production!)
The cable TV still didn't work, as a previous occupant noted in their review. The internet was poor: the property owner gave us several Wifi passwords, and the best one we could access would drop about every 10 minutes. Streaming video was out of the question.
The property owner is a very busy person, which was unfortunate, because she was unable to respond to and resolve these problems during our 5-nite stay.
The property furnishings are in need of attention - many of the furnishings in the listing's pictures - tables, lamps, etc. - are no longer there. For instance, it would have been convenient to have a lamp on the dresser next to the bed. The bathroom is quite tired: the decorative lamp bulbs above the mirror are down to 3 bulbs - the other 5 are empty sockets, and rust is encroaching on the fixture, as an example. The stairwell was jammed with "construction stuff", such as drywall/plywood sheets, etc.
To sum it up, the location is fantastic, the property is in need of an overhaul, but the price is economical. If you require video entertainment/streaming, you might want to look elsewhere. In spite of the current flaws, we'd stay here again.
Owner was very nice especially when we lost our keys but the TV and microwave did not work. Needs a little bit of updating. Great neighborgood close to times square
Microwave now replaced - was unaware until tenant let me know . Tv out because of worst snow storm noreaster.
Got tenants key to my stress of being woken up. Disaster averted.
Nice apartment that suited our needs perfectly. Easy access to what we needed and where we were going. Hostess was very helpful. Would stay again.
