Battery Park doorman building, clean, newly furnished great alcove studio with large windows facing the river and harbor. The bldg has pool, gym (extra fee) and laundry. Close to most subway lines, restaurants and all conveniences.
The apartment has a queen bed, fold out couch, and air mattress. Best for couple with small kids or single.
One week minimum. Daily fee plus one-time $90 cleaning.
I give preference to longer reservations.
The apartment was clean and well-equipped, and the bed was very comfortable. The large windows made the place feel much bigger. Emily was quick to respond to questions via text and email. The kitchen has lots of useful staple food items, such as coffee, tea, etc., probably left by others. During the day, the area is a bit noisy because of on-going construction, but nothing that bothered me too much, and it is very quiet at night. The apartment now has two couches (not shown in the pictures) that can double as beds, although I never used them. As someone else said in a review, the building appeared run-down and the elevator carpets were dirty. The location is close to Tribeca and SoHo, and across the water from Jersey City and Hoboken-- which is good because Battery Park City can seem a bit desolate at night. And it's a wind tunnel. Thank you, Emily for a comfortable stay.
Fue una pena no conocer a Emily en persona. El apartamento esta tal cual nos habia enseñado por fotos. Todo estaba preparado cuando llegamos y las instrucciones muy claras. El sitio esta estupendamente situado. Es muy tranquilo y fiable. El wifi era muy bueno. El baño correcto. La cocina no la usamos. La Tv alli es muy rara por los canales pero casi ni la vimos.
We had a great stay, no dramas getting the key to the apartment. The apartment is exactly like it is in the picture. It was exactly what we were looking for in the right location. Emily was extremely prompt with communication.
We had a great stay in NYC, and the apartment was exactly as described. The location was great and perfect for walking, running, bicycling and likewise (and very close to Staten Island ferry etc.) It was as well pretty close to (our favorite food store) Whole Foods Market at 270 Greenwich St. The communication Metro etc. was in short walking distance, and plenty of taxis were circling in the area. The correspondence with the Emily was fast, and we got all the information we needed. We can gladly recommend Emily and her flat at lower Manhattan!
The location of the apartment is absolutely stunning, you have a great view over the Hudson River, the neighbourhood is very safe and not too loud at night. We never met our host, but communication via email was quite easy. There wasn't any toilet paper when we arrived and we also couldn't find a bed sheet for the fold out couch so I had to use the blanket as one. I also had to use one of the towels as a pillow because there weren't any pillow cases for the extra pillows. All in all we had a wonderful time staying here, but there were a few issues that were unexpected as we did pay about 150€ a night.
I'm so surprised you didn't contact me to let me know that you couldn't find the extra linens as they were certainly there the whole time. I'm sure your stay would have been 100% positive had you simply asked where they are kept as all of our guests have been entirely thrilled with the accommodations.
I'm so sorry you didn't communicate this when you arrived.
This is our 2nd time staying 3 weeks in Karen's apartment. It is spacious, clean and has an amazing view of the Hudson and the North cove Marina. The general area is beautiful and very safe and a great place to relax. It is only minutes away from the 9/11 memorial and museum, a very special place to visit. The subway and buses are very close by and get you to any part of the city. We really enjoyed our visit here and never had any problems. Emily is very prompt when answering any e-mails. We would really recommend this apartment, you definitely won't be disappointed.
I had a good experience at Karen's studio. The view is fantastic letting us feel the New York vibe all the time. It is also near a pedestrian lane where it is easy to do some training by running or renting a bike. Plus it is right by the Hudson river! I have heard no sounds from the other appartments. The security service is great and efficient.
