E line at Broadway and 50th or Broadway and 53 St
N, R line at 49th and 7th ave
Tons of grocery stores, delis, drugstores nearby (some of which are 24-hour).
- Easy to hail a cab, they are all over in this busy area
- Easy to get to the apt from the airport by subway or you can also take a taxi or shuttle (if you need directions I will provide them after reservation)
- If you have car there are affordable lots nearby where you can find good deals for longer periods of time, but it is advisable to use the public transportation because this area is very busy and parking can be a hassle.

Madlene was a great host! Very welcoming and smiley. She was available all the time and replied to all my messages right away.
The house is cozy and comfortable. A bit noisy but it's NY and expected! So overall I had a very good experience and would definitely stay again when I'm back! Thanks Madlene!
Madlene was a very thoughtful and welcoming guest. The place was ideally located, 5 minutes away from Time Square.
We had a great time in NYC and were able to see a lot in a weekend thanks to the location of Madlene's place.
Never made it but host was very respectful.
Madlene is a friendly and kind host. She helped us right away with any problems because it was easy to contact her. The apartment has a really nice location cause you can get to time square and around mid town very fast and easily. I also loved that the place had a lot of restaurant near it. The apartment has almost everything you need in it but still has some stuff that can be improved. The place fits perfectly for three to four guest and I love the fact that there was wifi cause with it I was able to contact my family back home. Thing that might be improved are the room heating cause it gets pretty cold during the night, and the shower, that it's hard to regulate the temperature and the water barely comes out. Otherwise, it's a really nice place to stay and it has a good price for what it is.
Madlene was a great host, communication was fluent and very quick! She even did the best to accomodate our early arrival, and wrote to see if we needed anything else during our stay!
The apartment has an excellent location, very close to Time Square and one block away from C/E subway. There are a lot of supermarkets and delis nearby, and the neighbourhood felt perfectly safe.
We were 2 couples and the space was more than enough, not small at all. We had breakfast in, and even cooked several nights as there is cooking ware available. Just bare in mind there is no dinning table.
The apt is not cold as someone said (it was -24°C during our stay!). Also, I slept in the living room and was not bothered by the noise outside, it is a rather quiet street.
The bathroom was also fine, a bit tricky regulating the water temprature at first.
Wifi worked perfect, and another advantage was having 2 keys (one for each couple). Would definetively recommend ;)
Location, Location, Location… This place has it! Close to EVERYTHING! If you are looking to be IN the city then this place is your best bet. Madlene took care of me with whatever I needed… I will definitely come back.
Thanks Saccha woudl love to host you again in the future..
Everyone please note the 3 cancellations below are related to a listing I no longer have and had to cancel because of that. Otherwise I never cancel on my guests, as you can see with all the history through reviews I do not show other cancelations..
My experience at the apartment was a mix of both good and disappointing. Madelene is very friendly and happy to help you out with late check in. We arrived at 7pm and she was fine with waiting to us. Positives were the location was great. Really close to Times Square, lots of different bars and Irish pubs and great restaurants. We also loved the fact that the apartment had wifi. For us coming from Australia being able to contact everyone back home was good. However besides the location and the wifi we had a few issues.
Here is a list of the main issues: The tap drips loudly all night and day, the air vent is directly above the bed and it is very very noisy, the bed itself is broken, meaning when you lay in bed the bed slops to the middle which is very uncomfortable. In addition to all the negatives the apartment was not properly cleaned the bedroom was covered in dust and the walls were covered in marks. All in all the apartment had its positives and its negatives.
