This is a fantastic large 1BR apartment with a large living space and a queen-sized bedroom in a doorman building situated between Gramercy Park and midtown Manhattan. Great perks include:
- Central Convenient Location
- A few short blocks to multiple subway lines
- Madison Square Park, Union Square and the 5th Avenue shopping is just few blocks away
- The area is bustling with great shops, trendy restaurants and cute coffee shops (will provide a cheat sheet of the best locations in the area!)
The apartment has a kitchen with full size appliances including a D/W, full bathroom, WiFi, a large 46" flat-screen TV and a coffee machine.
There is a queen sized bed in the bedroom and a full-sized bed that pulls out from the sofa in the living room to comfortably accommodate up to 4 people.
This building is a full time doorman building with laundry on-site.
LA CASA RISPECCHIA LE CARATTERISTICHE INDICATE... NON ERA PERFETTAMENTE PULITA MA ACCETTABILE! L'UNICA NOTA NEGATIVA E RELATIVA ALL CHECK OUT... DOVEVA ESSERE ALLE ORE 12 AM INVECE LA SOGNORA DELLE PULIZIE È ARRIVATA ALLE 10,30 AM....
I needed to drop of my luggage in the morning before a meeting, and Florence arranged for me to leave my bag in the apartment and get the key earlier than the scheduled check-in time. The building has a doorman, and elevator, and is very close to lots of good restaurants. The 6 subway can be accessed on Park Ave at either the 23rd St or 28th street. The unit is big by NYC standards.
Pros: This is a quiet, clean apartment that is impossibly spacious by Manhattan standards. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. Florence was very responsive and easy to work with.
Cons: Nobody lives here; it's just an Airbnb investment property as far as I can tell. It's been a rental for a while and is a little rough around the edges from use. Five star luxury is a bit of a stretch for the fit and finishes of the place.
All together, you get a much more comfortable stay for about half the price of a comparable hotel room. Would use again.
Enjoyable experience. The apartment is comfortable and spacious and well located. Florence was responsive and courteous. The one issue we had was the sofa bed; it could have a firmer mattress. It was nice to have a doorman building where we could store our luggage for a few hours. I recommend staying here.
Fantastic, we stayed in the Apartment for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year and had entirely Positive experience.
The Apartment is ideally located not too far from the Action with ready access to the Subway and Bus Route (when you are too exhausted to walk another step).
Access to shops (supermarket, pharmacy, coffee shops, restaurants and bars ) is fantastic- you need travel no more than a 100 yards outside the front door.
As far as the Apartment is concerned (6th Floor). it is very well set up. We slept 2 Adults + our 2 Adult children with no problems, although the 3rd Bed - Couch was not real comfortable . Kitchen had everything you need (including a great coffee machine). Bathroom was also a good size. Laundry in the basement was also welcomed with 2 weeks in the City.
We did not meet Florence however Simon was very obliging when we had a problem with the WiFi and was a the Apartment within 30 minutes to fix it up. Cathy (cleaner) was also very helpful
We would recommend the Apartment to Every one
The apartment was exactly as described - very clean, spacious and in a great location. Check in was very smooth, the cleaning lady let us into the apartment and gave us the key. Overall a great experience and would consider using AirBnb in the future, especially when visiting New York where hotel and other costs are so steep.
El departamento tiene excelente ubicacion y es muy comodo!. No conocimos personalmente a Florence, pero fue muy atenta con sus detalles. El personal de conserjeria fue muy amable y colaborador.
We really enjoyed our stay at Florence's apartment. The location is fantastic and we found the apartment as pictured. Florence was really easy to communicate and flexible with our check in time (two of our friends arrived slightly early). The main bedroom is huge and the apartment is filled with natural light. The only slight con was the fold out bed is really uncomfortable - springs dig into your back. Otherwise excellent. I would definitely recommend staying here!
The apartment is extremely well located for a visit of NY. It really looks like the pictures on the site. It was clean and wifi was very useful. It is really easy to communicate with Florence, you get quick answers. There was no issues to get the key. The doormen were really nice. It was possible to leave them our luggages for a few hours on the last day. If I can go back, I will certainly try get this apartment again.
