The host canceled my reservation 16 days before arrival.
Stayed 8 nights during Thanksgiving week. Great location, walked to parade. Raquel had the place set-up for immediate move-in. Kitchen well-stocked, bathroom had plenty of space for toiletries, and the two closets had enough hanging space for a short trip. However, wished there were drawers available for unpacking the remainder of our winter wardrobe. We left most of our stuff in our luggage. Doormen were very friendly, parking was conveniently located adjacent to building and plenty of fun places to eat within walking distance. Oh, and the views of 6th Avenue were magnificent.
Raquel (email hidden) - fantastic communication, including lists of things to do in NYC. Her apartment is a corner gem with floor to ceiling views down 6th Ave, the location couldn't be better for getting out and about in NY, and the building has everything including a laundry and gym. Very highly recommended.
Me and my friends stayed at the apt. this October and had a great experience.
Before our arrival we received an e-mail from Raquel with all the information needed plus great recommendations on the area.
Through all this time Raquel was available to answer all of our questions and accommodated our needs.
The apt. is just like you see in the pictures - very comfortable and clean, great views.
Very nice building, Perfect location! The doorman's were nice and welcoming, it felt real safe.
Don’t think twice…
Raquel was a perfectly efficient, courteous hostess. We were looking (email hidden) in midtown at an affordable place, and this was it!
I have to agree with all the reviews for this stunning apartment. Our booking was also a little last minute, but Raquel was brilliant and helpful all the way through the process, and gave us some great advice and recommendations for our first ever stay in NYC. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures, is exceptionally clean and comfortable and the views from the floor to ceiling windows are incredible! There are plenty of subway stations within easy walking distance that can connect you to every part of the city. Lots of local deli's and good quality food markets practically on the doorstep. Also, lots of parks nearby, our favorite being Madison Square Park, which is a short walk from the apartment and a very cool place to hang out. The doormen were very welcoming and extremely helpful (in fact, they couldn't do enough and went over and above to help us out, even printing off directions and recommending the best places for a quick bite!). We also found everyone else in the building to be extremely friendly as well. Certainly for first timers to New York, we wouldn't have experienced anywhere near as much of the various districts of the city had we not had such great advice and suggestions from Raquel, so, if like us, you are visiting NYC for the first time, be sure to ask Raquel for her favourite places to go; it will open you up to explore some great areas. This is the only place we want to stay at when we come back to New York, and have already recommended it to our friend who is travelling over in a few weeks time. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in this gorgeous apartment in a brilliant location, and feel like a true New Yorker! A must stay place for anyone visiting NYC. Can't recommend this, or Raquel, highly enough. Thanks for our stay Raquel, we will definitely be coming back!!! Paula & Frank
I would give 10 star to Raquel's apartment. We had a great time staying there on July 2011 with my (website hidden) do not do the justice, the actual place is more beautiful and absolutely clean. I would definitely recommend her place to anyone who is looking (email hidden) and perfect location. She is an excellent host.
A last minute booking with Raquel was a blessing. This is a lovely apartment with amazing views over 6th Ave. Once we had found the air conditioning, we were in heaven.
If you want to see a Manhattan size view then this is the place. Easy taxis/subway to the whole of Manhattan.
The concierge/doormen were great and everyone in the building very friendly. Nearby deli, 10 yards walking, had everything you could possibly want for breakfast/lunch/dinner.
Don't stay in a hotel, stay here and fee special.
Raquel's apartment was great! Location was perfect and Raquel (email hidden).
We will definitely recommend this place for your trip in NY!!
Thanks Raquel for great communication and lovely apartment. It was a great base for us.
