clean, awesome location, excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days, family of five, in late June. The apartment was very easy to find, check-in and out were very smooth. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Within two blocks were grocery stores, drug stores, the metro (!), restaurants, street carts with fresh produce. TImes Square within easy walking distance, but also extremely easy to use the city buses to get there.

The building super was readily available.

The owner was very responsive and helpful. If we visit New York again, we will definitely try to book this apartment. I highly recommend this place.

Great Location, Basic Accommodations

  • 3 of 5

We have now stayed in 7 VRBO properties in 4 countries, including twice in NYC and this one was the first one we have reviewed. While it is listed as accommodating up to 6 people, we struggled with our 3 teenage boys. There was one blow-up mattress for a small child, one queen size blow-up mattress that couldn't fit anywhere and one that we used. Luckily, we had also brought one of our own. The sofa bed is in dire need of repair (please, please replace). There were no hooks in the bathroom for all of our towels (a quick and cheap fix), there was one towel bar. These may be petty grievances, but they go to our overall impression that we were offered a one bedroom apartment in a great location and nothing much else. There was no welcome booklet with maps of the area or tourist suggestions and guidance or any help other than a pdf with minimal information. From VRBO, we have come to expect being made welcome and not just given a place to sleep. So while the location is fantastic -- even parking on the street was "doable" at times -- if people are paying their first visit to NYC, this property did not greet them and guide them.

Owner's Response: My sincere apologies that you were not 100% satisfied with your accommodations. In response: I always timely inform guests that "the apartment can comfortably accommodate up to four adults (with one queen bed, one queen-size mattress and a sofa bed)." The extra air mattress is for children or people who don't mind to crash for a few days. This being the first complaint about my sofa bed I will consider replacing it. I do have a foam topper in the closet that would have made it more comfortable. Even though I prepared extra towels, bed sheets, blankets and pillows for six people, I forgot to add hanging hooks in the bathroom - will add them now. I appreciate the constructive feedback. As for guides and maps: I used to display many of them on the coffee table but stopped after prior guests removed them due to not wanting clutter. I remind guests that such info is easily accessible for free at Grand Central Station / Penn Station, and almost all subway stations. I appreciate the feedback and I am happy to make improvements. I will continue to do my best to make everyone's future stay the best possible.

Convenient location but smelled of cigarette smoke

  • 3 of 5

Convenient location, but there was a strong smell of cigarettes when we arrived - in fact the windows were all open, in December. Also, if you are looking for a kitchen that is equipped so you can make your own food, kitchen utensils and pans are limited. There is no fry pan.

However, we ate out most of the time and managed in the kitchen the rest of the time, frying eggs in a large non-stick pot. We really benefited from being a block from Grand Central Terminal and walking distance from Rockefeller Center and Times Square.

Biggest drawback for us was the cigarette smell... we were traveling with our 4 year old and had mentioned as much when we reserved the place.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the cigarette smoke - that is terrible! I personally can not stand the smell either. I asked the building and they told me if might be from a guest who smoked by the fire exit. Now the smell is all gone. Thank you for the feedback on the utensils and fry pan, I will stock up. (for some reason my utensils keep get missing...just had a new set of utensils not too long ago) I was traveling for the holidays and just got back to the city, my bad for not being on top of things. Appreciate the feedback so I can make it better for the future guests.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for 3 nights in early December with 4 students. The location was ideal! We walked to Rock Center, Times Square and the United Nations. Grand Central Terminal was just a few blocks away, so we could easily use the subway for other excursions.

Apartment had everything we needed. Only complaint was that the air mattress slowly went flat everynight, but don't they all? Great apartment, great hostess. I hope to be back with family members in the months to come!

Great location! Clean and quiet. Slept 5 of us very comfortably. Right around corner

  • 5 of 5

Considering how little time spent in a room while in NYC, it was just perfect. Since just around corner to grand central station and proximity to Lexington Ave and the subways, it was great.

The apartment that could be more stocked with towels for a 10 day visit. The bedding was plentiful.

  • 3 of 5

I have always looked for information about how to leave apt. at check out. There were no directives about garbage or recycling. We were there for ten days and needed a few more towels. We needed instructions on how to run the air conditioners which didn't seem to work when we got there and turned off by timers we had no control over. A thermostat control would be handy. We generally felt safe and had a place to sleep at night. Thank you Tina.
