Half a block from Times Square!
Please send a brief bio of yourself before booking. A photo would be nice too.
The apartment is in a walkup building. Please do not bring too much luggage because it will be hard to bring up the stairs
Great Apartment half a Block from Times Square on 44th street. Walking distance from Forever 21, Toys R' US, MTV, All Broadway theaters, Best Buy Theater, Sephora, and Starbucks. 24 hour Walgreens and Duane Reade are also around the corner. The apartment Includes Cable, air conditioning, internet, clean towels, and a full kitchen. The only downside is that the apartment is right by a neon sign so it's not so dark at night.
The bed available is a Queen Bed and has drawers to put your things in. It's a cozy room too! There are clean towels and guests can use my pots, pans, and fridge to cook as they wish.
CHECK IN/OUT TIMES:
Anytime after four works.
Check out is at 10 am.
SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED
There is a shared bathroom and guests will have access to the living room and kitchen.
I love my guests and like to spend time with them when I'm available.
I love how everything is walking distance! Elmo and Cookie Monster are half a block away in Times Square.
It's right by the A C E 1 2 3 N R F B D Q 7 trains. The 6 train, Port Authority Bus Terminal, Grand Central, and Penn station are less than a 10 minute walk.
The apartment: very very close to Times Square, amazing location. However, the apartment is not very clean, so clean freaks beware. Bedroom with bed only, apartment is pretty cold (but there is a heater), bathroom was freezing cold and quite dirty. It's quite bright in the room at night due to the neon lights outside.
The host: we were only able to check (email hidden), which was a bit of a hassle for us. Jeany was kind and welcoming. She offered us drinks as soon as we arrived and let us use her kitchen. She was helpful with NY hot spots and gave us information about the metro and shopping. She even gave us discount coupons for drinks at a bar. However, when we arrived, the bed still was not done (nor was it made until 9:30pm that evening). Furthermore, on the second day, when we came back to the room to grab a few things, we found our host sleeping in our bed, which was kind of weird and made things awkward.
All in all, convenient place to stay in the heart of Times Square if you are only looking for a bed to sleep in. It's good for people travelling on a budget (like students), but you have to lower your expectations/standards/comfort levels.
The best with this apartment is the localisation it´s in Time square and you have diferents subways. Jeany is very Nice, she ofers us pizza cake and tea. The apartment is not Iixurious but for those who want only sleep and possibly eat it very (website hidden) I recomande a lot this place to stay in N Y
So... I arrived at 2pm (couple of hours before check in, but Jeany knew about this). I had a warm welcome into the flat and was offered tea & biscuits although I think she had just woken up. Reasons to follow:
I was shown to the bedroom and taken aback to find the bed somewhat disheveled. The sheets and duvet were all messed up and there was a mobile phone on the mattress.
I gave Jeany the benefit of the doubt, as she appeared a little below par suffering with a cold. When I asked if they were clean sheets, Jeany replied "oh, yes they are, but I had a quick nap in them prior to your arrival."
The comical thing is that she offered to change the sheets, which made me feel awkward and I replied, “don’t worry”. However, in the evening prior to getting into bed I was surprised to find the bed sheets weren’t as clean as one would expect in Europe so changed them myself with some clean sheets I found in a drawer.
The bathroom was freezing cold, with dirty mats and full bins. Although I didn’t use the kitchen it appeared clean. The living room was dusty and could have done with a vacuum. Bedroom was bright during the night but ok if you had an eye mask on and the electric heater in the room made it bearable when the weather was really cold in February.
On our last evening in the flat I was talking on the phone and noticed a mouse under the television – dead!!!! Not quite sure how long it had been there or how it got there but nonetheless it was a furry rodent. (I noticed a sign on the stairwell saying that there had been exterminators in the restaurant below so this was probably the cause)
Location was terrific and for the price I felt I couldn't grumble... However, I feel that whatever price you pay, you do expect a clean bed and no vermin.
Sorry for what seems to be a harsh but true review.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I need to start this review by saying that this is not a 4 star hotel. But you won't find a better location for this price. Literally 100m from Times Square. A slow walk will take you 1 minute to get there.
The room is tiny, but neat and clean. The sheets were washed upon our arrival. The bathroom is small but functional, although it doesn't have heating (only a problem in winter)
Virgil's Bar is downstairs, so there's a lot of light and some noise coming from outside, but this is New York. Light and sound seems to be the main export. We got by, using earplugs and eye-covers. You won't want to sleep too much, anyways.
Make sure you check your arrival time with Jean (the owner) before you get to NYC. We were stuck outside for a few hours because of this
If all you want from your NYC accommodation is a place to sleep and shower, then this is perfect. You can't beat the price and location
If you want the hotel experience, there's one across the street.
Could not have been a better location. We had a wonderful stay at J's place. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Clean room and bath.
If you are looking to stay smack dap in the middle of time square ( literally just outside ) at a bargain price. This place is for you...
This place would best be suited for a couple or a single traveler like myself.
The bathroom was a little tight but I am 6 foot 250...
Jean the host was very nice. She offered me warm tea and even a umbrella to use when it started to snow.
Very affordable for a super convenient location, steps away from Times Square and the subway. It was great to be so close to shops and restaurants.
The apartment was clean and Jeany was nice enough to stay and meet us for our check-in despite it being later than scheduled.
The apartment is very well located, very close to times square. The apartment is simple and small, but meets the basic needs. We spent 10 days in the flat and had no problems.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
