Kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven and all cooking utensils and dining needs for preparing meals
The location is perfect. Close to everything, yet situated on a quite tree-lined street 1 block in either direction from the Theater District, great dining and Times Square. The building was just renovated and the apartment has great amenities, best of all a washer/dryer. There is a secure intercom system with video. The apartment has 4 large windows and it gets a lot of sunlight. A glass paned door separates the bedroom from the living room. There are 2 TVs - one 32" LCD TV and one 27" TV - both with cable TV. There is WIFI internet and air conditioning. Living room has a full-size futon or you can use an automatically inflatable air bed (fits 2 people). Bedroom has a queen size bed. Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking; there is a dishwasher & wine cooler too.
I meet my guests when they arrive to give them the keys, explain the house rules, and give them a short orientation.
Very convenient location for taking advantage of all that Manhattan has to offer - great dining and night life just around the corner and within walking distance to Broadway shows. Minutes to Times Square & Broadway. 5 minute walk to Columbus Circle & Lincoln Center. 10 Minute walk to Museum of Natural History & Museum of Modern Art.
Subway is 1.5 blocks away.
I expect my guests to return the apartment to me in the same condition they received it and to respect my neighbors.

The experience with this apartment was a mixed bag. The host was quick to communicate and accommodating during the check-in and check-out process. But the place itself was not what we expected based on other rave reviews. This is New York City of course, so the apartment is very, very small. It's billed as a one-bedroom, and technically is, but in reality it's the size of a small studio (the "bedroom" is basically filled completely with a full-sized bed). If you plan to use the place as a home-base (to cook meals or spend any time in), it would be uncomfortable. Also the place could use a good cleaning by a professional crew. It looks like some basic cleaning is done between guests, but the place was definitely dusty; the window in the bedroom was taped with plastic and packing tape to keep out drafts; the mattress was old and the linens (though laundered) were also old. Overall, we felt that for the price, the place could be better taken care of.
That said, the location is great. Not far from Central Park, plenty of great restaurants, subways, and so forth.
El anfitrión nos recibió de forma nada amigable y descortés, incluso diría antipática y seca y de la misma forma nos despidió. La casa lo único bueno que tiene es su situación. Esta descuidada y sucia, las paredes con manchas. El aparato de aire acondicionado de la habitación estaba caído y sujeto con almohadones y cinta de embalar, así trataban de evitar que entrara frío. El edredón estaba viejo y no parecía limpio, lo mismo pasaba con la funda del sofá de la sala. El cuarto de baño tampoco estaba limpio. La alfombra para los pies que era azul claro parecía gris. No tenemos queja del desayuno, pero debo decir que la mantequilla, azúcar, café, mermelada etc estaban empezados. El WIFI funcionaba bien. No recomendaría la casa.
Great apartment in a great location. We we're four people staying without any problem. Only two beds (one sofa bed) so we had to share. Close to subway and restaurants.
Nice appartement in a perfect location in NYC. We were 4 in the flat and the size was ok, particularly because we were out visiting the city most of the time. The price is unbeatable as well for this location! Thank you Teresa, we spent a lovely time in NY!
Tout s'est bien passé, nous reviendrons? Seul petit bémol, le chauffage trop fort et visiblement non réglable.
The apartment was great and matched the listing description, a little small for 4 people but very doable (that's NY)! Davinci provided us with new breakfast food and there were plenty of towels, blankets, and pillows. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was mostly clean. We thought check out was at 2pm, and when we double checked after we got home, the site said 12pm- so Davinci was very accommodating and flexible with timing. She could not meet us to give us the keys, but a friend of hers did once we made it to the city, and he was very nice. Perfect location in the middle of the city - it was close to everything! The only downfall is that there was only one set of keys, but we made it work. I would recommend this apartment and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you DaVinci!

Originally from NJ, but live in NYC now. Majored in art but now working as a computer programming for a large bank. Love to travel but haven't had the time. In addition to my day job, I sell stuff on the internet. I've travelled quite a bit so I know what's important when you are a guest. I try to provide my guests with what I would like/expect when I travel.
