Great location - Good space

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as shown in the photos - the living room was very spacious and so was the bedroom. Bathroom not overly large but very good for NYC. Plenty of space in the bedroom to put clothing, suitcases, etc. Easy to get to Times Square - Central Park - or the subway/buses if going further. The only caution is that the first floor of the building is a restaurant so there are cockroach traps located around the building and in the apartment - but this is to be expected in NYC when there is a restaurant below.

Large apartment in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in October. Positives: The space is very large for Manhattan. Tiffany was easy to get a hold of and helpful. We were able to leave our bags before check-in and explore the city. AC works well. Close to everything needed. Negatives: Need new bathroom towels. No paper towels (I know this sounds petty, but it's a small convenience that is important to me). I was under the impression we could check in at noon, but that was pushed back to 2pm (after we had come in on a red eye from CA).

All in all, a very good stay!

Heaven in Kitchen´s Hell

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very well located, near Times Square, Broadway Av. and a few blocks from Central Park. It´s on a second floor, so it has easy access. It has a very big living room where 3 people can confortably sleep and simple furniture. Perhaps a shocking thing is to find some computer screens on a desk which spoil the living room´s decoration.

The kitchen is absolutely fully-fitted with the necessary gadgets and crockery which tempt the guests to a delicious meal.

Its bedroom and bathroom are confortable and big which provide a cosy atmosphere to your stay in Kitchen´s Hell, but close to heaven.

Great location but a little basic & grubby

  • 4 of 5

The size surpassed my expectations. We had two teenagers with us and the living room was huge and airy so perfect. Location couldnt be better as a couple of minutes walk from the underground & near Times Sq. etc. which is the priority really. A little lacking in kitchen items eg strainer to cook basic things like spaghetti, kettles, knives so any cooking is a little tricky. Air con worked v well but clunked on and off so you'll need earplugs. Was v.hot and not very clean when we arrived. No basics like washing up liquid/dishwasher tablets/salt/oil/additional toilet rolls which seemed a little basic and implied previous occupant's stuff had been removed as we left ours behind and I'm sure they must have too. Bit rundown and grubby like a slightly unloved student flat with stains, marks, lights gone and light bulbs missing. Needs TLC. The really positive thing is the support we got from Tiffany - we had a nightmare with the toilet which ran over and filled the place with sewage & we didnt have a toilet for the first night. (Were given access to one on the ground floor) These things happen. They also bizarrely made up one of the 5' sofabeds for my 6'3" son so we had to borrow full size bed linen from the flat downstairs and make up the full size sofa ourselves (make sure you advise her if your children are full sized so this doesn't happen to you). Our bed linen was also questionably stained and had hairs in it.... She replaced the bedlinen the next day and fixed the toilet as quickly as she could and refunded the first night. Good to know if these things happen that action is prompt and communication is frequent and excellent and we thought the refund fair. To make this a 5/5 review they could do with providing a few more basics, have the air con running before people arrive and up the cleanliness and decor - but if all you care about is a bed & location this is great.

Owner's Response: I appreciate all feedback. The information provided as instructions let's you know that You have to bring your own toiletries. I honestly think since you had a toilet at all time and you accepted to enter and have access 2 apartments I did not have to refund you at all but I did so just to make you happy and to stop what I honestly perceived as a great deal of aggression on your part. For the sake of dignity and only out of respect I will not repeat the statements you made to me but I will say Stains on sheet was a bleach stain which was replaced There was issues from my point of view which I chose to overlook because I truly went above and beyond to make this traveller and her family happy, as I hope to do with all my guests. They discovered there was a toilet issue unbeknost to me at late evening and I believe I got a handyman out to fix it at a late hour which although guest did not want being jet lagged is what had to happen to fix it in a timely manner. Honestly, because I felt the traveller was very shall we say quite displeased I even opted and did ttotally replace the toilet for her!. From my point there was another incident which was not mentioned, The excessive use of dishwasher liquid by the guest which actually created a mini flood of the flat. Foam reaching to all ends of the floor creating yet another clean up and service call and more monies spent to service the guest in terms of clean There were things that were said that were hurtful and I simply chose to turn the cheek and not engage further because I did realize that no matter what I would do it would never be enough. I truly think from my end when and I did try to make them as happy as I could but I dare say I do believe they would never be happy no matter what was done for them. As for what they write about the toilet I do not understand how all of a sudden my toilet was broken perhaps stuffed with paper but I always accept responsibility and did my best to service her - and offered her access to another flat at great cost and expense to myself. It was a mutually difficult period and had they wished to leave which they for some reason did not want to do it would have been welcome. I take great objection to the comments of dingy etc. I dare say I understand that you just cannot please people not matter how much you try and try I did. I wish them he best if luck in future stays

Family with 3 teens spent a week in July

  • 4 of 5

Good location. Parents may want to know there's a large amount of unsecured hard liquor prominently displayed at ground level. I was able to trust our 3 teens would leave it alone, but they may be unusual. The "well stocked" kitchen did not have a coffeepot or working toaster when we arrived. I texted the owner about a coffeepot and she delivered one fairly promptly. For the price, I'd like to see this unit stocked with a bar of soap, paper towels, trash bags, etc, but we had to purchase all the most basic essentials. Lastly, be sure and follow-up and make sure that your refundable damage deposit gets returned to you. I had to specifically request it's return after 9 business days, after having followed up once and been told it would credit to us "automatically".
