Having used FlipKey only once before we weren't sure if we would consistently get the same quality of accomadation as the last time - we are so happy to say that this place delivered a home run! From the professional dealings with the owner, to the neighborhood, true to photo expectations, cleanliness, and the list goes on. We were very happy. We stayed here for 4 nights in June and it was cool and comfortable, perfectly convenient and sized for our small family. It is a basement apartment so you can and might hear some upstairs noise, but it was never at bad times, or abnoxious, they were very considerate of the fact that they had people staying below them. This place was the PERFECT start to our 2 1/2 week visit to the NY area. We would definitely stay here again.
