Lovely, quiet apartment in a great location. Hilary was a great hostess!
A great apartment in a great location. Everything was easy, the place was clean and ready to be lived in.
I was there with my wife for a week, on holiday, december 2011. We liked the apartment very much, because it is large, larger than any hotel room we can permit ourselves, and because we felt almost at home. Comfortable bed, large sofa, parquet. Even if we were in NYC, "the city that never sleeps", we took our time, as we always do. The place is full of shops 24/7, bars and restaurants of different kinds. Also well connected with the rest of Manhattan. Hilary was a great hostess, gave us ditailed info, and quickly answered to all our questions via cellphone. We recommend her and her apartment!
Hilary is a great host. The apartment is more beautiful and spacious than the photos show. It's definitely close to everything you'd ever want: quirky East Village bars, fantastic food, New York characters, and remains safe and quiet most of the time.
I would definitely stay here again, and recommend others do so.
Hillary's apartment is everything you need in New York. Great location, space, quiet, and clean. I would recommend a stay here and would definitely stay again!
Very nice, spacious apartment at a great neighborhood. Very clean and well taken care of. Hilary was very accommodating and communication with her was very pleasant. We'd gladly stay there again at our next trip to New York -if only it wasn't for the noise levels from the adjacent schoolyard early in the morning. Perfect location for going out at night but on the wrong side of the building if you want to sleep a bit the day after. :-)
Excellent place, exactly as depicted on the site. The location is superb, and the apartment is big, with plenty of room to spread out--which was important, since I was there for two weeks. I didn't meet Hilary, but she left a detailed note with lots of info about the building (which includes laundry and a gym, neither of which I used) and neighborhood.
The only caveat I have is that if you want to sleep past 8:00 on a weekday, you may be awakened by the sound of children on the playground next door. The bedroom is also pretty bright in the mornings.
The bathroom drain was slow, but this may be fixed by the time you get there. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.
It was a pleasure staying here, Hilary was prompt with replying to messages and was accommodating, the area is amazing, convenient location, great building & spacious, cozy, homely apartment, sad to leave NY, thank you Hilary, we highly recommend this apartment.
