Great location. All things needed by me, were available.
I have stayed here before. I chose to return. Will do so again. Location and availability to subways and grocery stores make this place perfect for my needs. I would suggest a couple of additions. A paring knife is greatly needed. The only knife in the kitchen is a huge butcher knife--a danger to oneself and others. Also, please provide a roll of paper towels and a second roll of toilet tissue.
The location was great & it’s in a safe neighbourhood, real close to Central Park. The owner was very responsive when I told him to fix a few things to make the studio more comfortable. Overall experience was good.
Excellent describes location, not the apartment.
The first thing prospective guests should know is that apartment is below street level, and the windows are next to the trash bins. The other is that the subway station that's supposed to be at the corner is closed for construction. Fortunately, bus service is excellent, as are the restaurants within walking distance. The unit is clean, except for a metal vent in the bathroom that has gathered years of dust and needs to be painted and the grout in the shower tiles. Also in the bathroom are missing wall tiles that could easily have been replaced when the modern sink cabinet was installed. I believe that renovating this unit is a work in progress. The owner has chosen to move the flat screen into a rustic armoire, so you can only watch from the bed or one seat of the couch, and several of the overhead lightbulbs in the combo bed-living-dining area are out, making it gloomy-looking. Another review mentioned the leaky coffeepot; it's still leaking -- the surface it's on is not level. The turntable in the microwave doesn't turn. The one thing I think the owner should address immediately is to replace the mattress cover and the bed pillows; they are in terrible condition. I am pointing this stuff out because it's all easily remedied, and I think people should know what to expect. I probably spent more time than most guests in the unit because everything I planned to do in New York took place before dark. And those helpful tips VRBO said you'd receive on their app never appeared.
Nearest subway stop was down but still really easy to get everywhere we wanted to go from here. Met was just a quick walk through the park.
Great location 1/2 block from Central Park. Close to Subway station. Close to great restaurants and convenience stores. Enjoyed the neighbourhood. Only reason didn't give 5* was because of the little things in the apartment. Light bulbs burnt out, leaky coffee pot(which was mentioned by a previous renter), TV issues, and no plugs in the bathtub or sink. These are minor things but would have made our stay that much more enjoyable. Dov was available when we contacted him regarding issues such as the TV. Would definitely recommend and would return here on our next visit to NYC.
A great location but——-
This apartment is for the traveler who plans to spend a miminum of time there. TV worked less than half the time. Communication with owner was not the best. A cockroach in the bathroom but clean otherwise. Linens and bed were fine. The neighborhood is family centered,, area restaurants are good as well as bus and subway access. So it depends on what is necessary for a stay in NYC. We have traveled extensively and are not demanding travelers. However——
