"My sisters, mother and I enjoyed a four night stay in this comfortable little apartment from October 9 to 13. From inquiry to check out, the entire experience was very smooth and easy. Anthony and Elaine are extremely good to deal with, respond to all inquiries immediately, and made the payment and check in process very easy and clear.
The apartment is in a great location, with plenty of pubs, restaurants, and shops all around. It is also very close to the subway stops for easy transportation. We felt very safe and comfortable in the neighborhood, even at night.
The apartment building is a little older but well maintained with a locking lobby. Ours was on the third floor and there is no elevator. It wasn't a problem for us but could be for those with mobility issues.
The apartment has plenty of room in both bedrooms, and the sofas are quite comfortable for relaxing although we didn't need them for sleeping so can't comment there.
It is well stocked with all a lovely little kitchen and nice appliances. Linens and towels, etc are plentiful; not high end but very clean. Plenty of dishes, glasses, cutlery as well as a microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee maker. It makes it easy to pop by Zabar's market for some basic breakfast and snack supplies.
Because of the placement of the apartment in the rear of the building, it doesn't get much natural light but on the plus side it is very quiet, which was important to us. Each room has a ceiling fan plus a window air conditioner, which is great as even in October we liked some cooler air.
The only thing I would recommend are needed are a couple of tall floor lamps in the living area to cast more light, and some more functional lamps in the bedrooms.
For a two bedroom apartments, with a queen, double and single bed (plus two fold out couches), we paid $1500.00 for four nights, taxes and cleaning fees included. We considered this a great deal for the space, location, and comfort. For sure we recommend this hidden gem and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Anthony and Elaine!
