What Past Guests Are Saying
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Great location, small living area however the bedrooms were a go
Living area & kitchen tiny but sufficient & the bedrooms & bathroom were a good size. We loved the location we needed things like grocery stores & laundromats all in a short walking distance. Also close by was The Guggenheim, Central Park, The Metropolitan Museum & the bus stops for the Hop-on-Hop-off tours. Walk to Times Square not necessarily close but we did it with three kids & luggage on our last day. We arrived in New York around 8.00 in the morning & even though we couldn't check in & get the key until 3.00 we could leave our luggage at the offices which was perfect. The group running the apartment were very helpful & we enjoyed our stay.
