"Really loved our stay here. A couple of negatives, but I think that is just due to overall NYC, and nothing really to do with this property. What I loved: Starbucks right across the street! that was fantastic. Restaurant right next door. 7-11 store around the corner, and just about 3 blocks to a subway station. Centrally located to many sites, it was easy to get around, easy to find and get back to, and staying in an apartment rather than a hotel is just awesome. Always felt safe. The apartment was large, very roomy, and the master bedroom and bath was quite large. Each bathroom was accessible without disturbing other bedrooms, and there is a nice size closet for luggage and unpacking. What I did not like: Two bedrooms were on the street side of the apartment and LOUD from the street noise. Lots of traffic noise, honking and even voices could be heard. I called it the "songs of nyc" and figure most places are going to have this issue, and I am from a small town and not used to that noise in my sleepy time:) One of the bathrooms had a very noisy fan that was on if the light was on, just a little nerve-wracking. The lighting in the apt was poor, especially in the bedrooms. It made it a little difficult for ladies to get ready, but the master bath had better lighting, so as long as you all make time to get in there for makeup, then it is fine. There were no extra blankets that I could find, and the apt was a bit cold. We had a radiator heater in the bedrooms that did help. The apt had more heat, but it had to be all on or all off, and so other people staying with us were a factor, and they did not want the heat on, plus the other rooms were comfortable. An extra blanket would have made a big difference (and I might would have slept on the couch or air mattress to get away from the noise from the streets.) Lastly, I have stayed in several vacation home rentals, and this was the least stocked one I have been in. Usually there are a few bottles of water, and basic spices and such, so that you don't have to buy all the necessities when shopping (especially in a city) and so that you can at least have some water after travelling before you have to get out and shop, especially if you arrive late and you are tired. So those few things would make this place a beyond perfect stay. All in all, it was a great stay. We had a great time in the city, and none of the negatives were enough for me to deduct a star from the rating."
