Excellent location - moderate apartment

  • 3 of 5

Good points :

1. Location , 5 min walk to times sq, 10 seconds to subway station

2. Price , you wouldn't get anything cheaper for location

3. Kitchen equipment , well stocked

4. Bathroom toiletries provided

5. Iron , ironing board and hair dryer provided

6. Good size oven and fridge

7. Bedroom storage

8. Wifi - excellent

9. Secure premises

Bad points

1. Back yard - horrendous view of rubbish , weeds , dumped metal

2. Bedding grubby and old

3. Would of benefited from pictures on wall / homely touches

4. Needs a full length mirror ( only mirror was small one in bathroom )

5. No cleaning products for keeping apartment clean

6. No tea towel

7. Very poor TV reception

8. Lack of communication / poor English

9. No table cloth as shown in photos etc..

Good price in excellent location , little touches which would not cost much would of made a big difference and made it feel much more homely . Would also benefit from a welcome pack giving instructions / advice / info on apartment and check out procedures as there was a big mix up over if we were allowed to leave luggage on last day .

Staff pleasant but found it difficult to understand us .

unprofessional

  • 1 of 5

The location was great and close to metro and time square. The apartment was clean. However the service was unprofessional. First of all, they give you three different people to contact for arrival. The first two sent no response to my text. This already gave us a bad feeling. The third, Carmen responded and said to call when we arrived. I called and could barely understand her. She talked us through how to get into apartment, but it was so hard to understand that we figured it out on our own. She tried to explain that something was wrong with the bathroom, but she couldn't really articulate what it was. She asked when we would be at the place and I said that we weren't sure. Also, she asked about the balance. I said that we would be happy to leave the money, but to let us know when someone would be by to fix whatever it was that needed to be fixed. We got into NYC around 6pm. When we got in, we realized that it was the sink that was not working. It was really inconvenient to have to use the kitchen sink to wash our hands and teeth. We are both nurses and the idea of having to leave the bathroom without washing our hands is unsettling. My friend and I thought that possibly they would take some money off for the inconvenience so instead of leaving $240 we left $200. While were out we got a text late that night at 10:19pm asking for the rest of the money. I explained to Carmen why we had only left $200but if they still wanted the rest we should gladly pay. I texted her that we could either leave the money before we left or someone could come by and get it, and to let us know when they were coming. I never received a text back. We had the $40 on the table just in case they would call while we were out and we could direct them what to do. On our last night we went out and when we got back, we realized that the money was gone. We were creeped out by the fact that someone just went in without letting us know first. We never got a call or text. Not only did they not call us but they just came into our space. We felt really uncomfortable. As professionals we expect good service and professional behavior, which they did not provide. Also, if you do not have something not working properly, it should be fixed before the guest arrives or at least make them aware prior to arrival.

Clean, Clean and Close to Time Square for sure

  • 1 of 5

We were ok with our stay. It was close to TS as promised but my only and most major complain is that the bed was absolutely uncomfortable. My husband and I kept on rolling into the middle/into each other. We made the best of it since we were only there for 4 nights and it was cheap. I do have to stay Wilson and Carmen were very nice though they tried to accommodate us as best as they could.

Cheap, Clean & Close to Time Square. That is all.

  • 1 of 5

So. I am not sure what year those pictures were taken but:

1) We had some other bedspread that was less than desirable - AND that was the only blanket we had.

2) There were NO rugs in the kitchen, NO RUGS or toliet covering in the bathroom (as from the pictures)

3) There were NO washcloths

4) There were NO kitchen towels OR paper towel. We finally bought a roll of paper towel because all we had in the whole unit were 4 mis-matched old bath towels.

5) There is NO heat in the bathroom and with the New York winter there was a breeze blowing through the thin windows so we took one of our 'sacred' towels and tried to cover the window to keep the cold out.

6) There is NO temperature control in the unit. There are only two radiators for the place which kept in minimally warm - but slept with full clothes on - because again there was only 1 blanket that also served as the comforter.

7) There was also major questions about the security deposit and how I would get it back. No one that was on the contact list seemed to understand the security deposit. I did NOT leave the unit until I got back my security deposit. It made me a little uncomfortable handing over my security deposit without getting a receipt or a good feeling about how I would get it back. In the end I did before I left so it was 'ok' in the end but I was really concerned thinking I was NOT getting it back.

8) The dresser in the bedroom had a lamp on it but it was not plugged in NOR was the cord long enough NOR was there an outlet even close even with an extension cord.

We made the best of it since it was so close to Time Square and it was cheap. But sometimes you get what you pay for. It was not 'comfortable' by any means. It was just 'practical'.

Un séjour parfait

  • 4 of 5

Nous voulions encore remercier Giuseppe pour le service et la bonne communication.

L'appartement situé à 304 , 40th W à New-York est à 2 pas de Times Square, des stations de Bus et Métro.

Nous pris possession de celui-ci dans un très bon état, très propre, bonne literie, à l'abri du bruit de la ville.

La gentillesse de Wilson et de Carmen.

Nous y reviendrons!!

A recommander!

Charmant studio

  • 4 of 5

Appartement tres bien situé, 10-15 min à pied de Times square seulement et à 115 m de la station de métro la plus proche. Point de départ idéal pour decouvrir New York. Peu de linge dans le logement , seulement les serviettes de toilettes, ce qui est un peu juste et serait à améliorer. Notre séjour a eu lieu en juin, il faisait déjà chaud donc pas de souci de chauffage et la clim fonctionne tres bien. Equipement un peu juste pour cuisiner. Appartement impeccable à notre arrivée.

Tres bon rapport qualité-prix.
