Melissa was most accommodating and the apartment was great. Wonderful location, convenient to everything we needed--restaurants, delis, and subways. I would definitely do it again.
Mel's apartment was fantastic. It was big enough for my daughter and me to have a refuge in the winter. The location is so very convenient that we walked everywhere. I would highly recommend Mel's apartment.
We stayed in Mel's apartment for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. Mel was great to deal with. Everything as described. Way better than a hotel, and Defonte's on the corner. Yum! And we could walk to our friends place in Soho in about 30 mins..
We stayed in Mel's apartment for ten days in November and had a great time, mainly thanks to having a little home away from home! The apartment is very well situated and comfortable. We absolutely loved it and loved dealing with Mel. She was great! Would do it again for sure!
We stayed in Mel's apartment for a few nights this week and it was brilliant. The apartment is beautiful and very central. We would happily stay there again. Mel was very helpful and understanding when our flight was delayed. Perfect.
Owning a clothing store in Chicago means spending a lot of time in NYC. Hotels can really add up so we decided to try Mel's place mostly because of the awesome central location. It was like home away from home. Elevator building, close to Union Square and great places to eat. We even stayed in a few nights this time-which is rare. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
I was with Mel for 7 nights and it was completely awesome. Everything was so close I had no problems getting around, and the subway was like literally two blocks away. Oh and Mel herself is very cool I totally rate her. Now that New York is like my second home I would stay here without any hesitation.
We just stayed in Mel's lovely apartment for 11 days. Charming and comfortable. Very conveniently located.
Mel was helpful with the initial organisiation and checked in that we were o.k.
I would totally recommend this apartment to anyone needing some comfort and privacy when staying in NY.
Mellisa is a very good host. The location is quite good, convenient to go to Mahattan, Downtown, etc. I really love her dog. The puppy is so cute and quiet that I want to take it away with me!
If Mel were offering a corner of a dung-beetle infested mud hut it would still be a pleasure because she is the perfect hostess. As it happens, her place is cheery, individual, convenient and not co-habited by vermin. So I actually consider that a bonus. A 10/10 stay.
I stayed in this apartment when I came to New York this past winter. The neighborhood is so convenient to shopping and walking everywhere. I walked to Union Square, China Town, Grammercy Park, Chelsea, West Village, East Village and one night after watching a Broadway show walked back from Time Square. I was going to stay at the W Hotel which is blocks away from Melissa's apartment but decided to pay Melissa $50 instead of $500 to the W Hotel and I had tons of money to spend on me. Her small dog Sadie is very unintrusive, quiet, clean and keeps to herself. This is such a steal considering the neighborhood.
The location is phenomenal - great neighborhood with good coffee and bagel shop right around the corner; short walk past Grammercy Park to two major subway lines. Bus even closer. Mel's apartment is cozy and tidy, with wonderful morning light from window. And the futon is VERY comfortable.
I stayed here for 3 weeks in April and it was great. The bed was comfortable, Mel was a great host and I miss the dog now i have left. Plenty of places to get good coffee and food in the surrounding area and it's busy and well-lit 24/7 so super safe all the time. Great part of New York to stay in.
