Photos and Description of this Hell's Kitchen holiday apartment

3 Bed/2 Bath Large Luxury Apartment With Patio In The Most Desirable Location

This place is incredible. When I got this place I wanted the best location, no neighbors on the same floor, lots of space, nice finishings and outdoor space. I wanted it all and I got it. Let's cover these one by one.

The location can't be beat. We are right next to Columbus Circle. That means you can get a quick train ride to anywhere in the city in less than 20 minutes. That said, you won't need a train to stay occupied as its right next to Central Park! You can walk to Times Square in less than 10 minutes. Its a Midtown address for you business travelers and shoppers. For the foodies, Hell's Kitchen is right there. For the museum lovers, we are right next to the Lincoln Center and the Upper West Side to reach the Natural History Museum and more.

No neighbors. This apartment is the entire floor of the building. There is no one else. Below it is an office so you don't have to worry about keeping anyone up at night and no one is there at all on the weekends.

The space is beautiful and huge. This is a completely renovated unit, completed in 2015. We had the whole floor gutted and rebuilt. All of the walls, floors, etc are brand new. It's a new place in an old building. Its the entire floor of the building. It's a true 3 bedroom. Beware of substitutes. Many in this city call their 2 beds, 3 beds. This is an actual 3 bedroom. All 3 bedrooms are very large by NYC standards. The living room is very spacious. Even the bathrooms are huge! It has around 1700 square feet or 188 square meters.

The finishings are all top of the line. Stainless steel appliances, beautiful name brand furniture (Pottery Barn and La-Z-Boy throughout), its all been thought of. Each room has a queen bed but there's also a sleeper sofa and two chairs which turn into beds which means there are 6 beds in all. The electronics are all as nice as you would expect in a place such as this. I stay here with my family during the summers so I spare no expense.

The outdoor space by NYC standards is huge. It has a patio! Do you know how rare that is? The patio has a dining table which seats 6.

This apartment is on the 3rd floor and is a walk-up. That means 2 flights of stairs. For you Europeans and Asians, that's the 2nd floor. The stairs aren't challenging but you need to know about them.

When I personally stay at other people's vacation rentals, I'm always disappointed by the quality of their supplies. You won't experience that with me. The kitchen supplies, the furniture, the towels, everything is top notch. We even have salon quality hair dryers!

Here are some other interesting features that stand out.

- One of the bathroom showers is also a steam room.

- We have an Apple TV so you can stream NetFlix or use it to have presentations at your company meeting.

- The beds and the bedding are top of the line. You will be able to rest here.

About Rick Latona

I'm in the Internet Business as my day job. I've been doing it for about 20 years now.

I have a wife and two daughters and we all love to travel. The place we love the most is New York and I also come here a lot on business, so when I had an opportunity to get this place I jumped on it. I'm not in the real estate business. I just rent the contents out to help cover my cost.

Rick Latona purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Rick Latona chose Manhattan

As stated in my description, the size, style, location, etc are all just perfect. I looked at hundreds of places before finally landing on this one. I love this apartment and I know you will too.

What makes this apartment unique

Its very difficult to find a place this big and nice in this location for the price I'm offering. I'm sure if you have found this page and are looking at this listing, then you already know that's true.

Impressive apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 9 nights at this wonderful apartment with my extended family of 7. Rick and his assistant Sheyla were very responsive to our needs and did everything to make us feel at home.

Starting with plush white towels, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, and the fastest internet I've ever seen.

We had two issues that Rick and Sheyla addressed right away: One was with the hot water in the steam shower and the other with remodelling being done in the apartment above us. Both issues were worked around to our satisfaction.

The location is superb, close to most everything we wanted to be near of.

One word of advice is to pack light since you'll need to carry your bags two flights of stairs.

We were very happy that we were allowed to keep the apartment until mid afternoon the day of our departure, since our flights were late in the day.

In conclusion, would we recommend this apartment to friends and family? The answer is a resounding "yes"!

The apartment was very comfortable with a great location.q

Enjoyed the space, a few small additions would be very helpful. We needed Dish detergent and kleenex. The outdoor space was not as clean as I would have liked.

Beautiful apartment in immaculate condition

  • 5 of 5

I can't fault this place at all. Great location, lovely finishes, ample supplies of everything (you don't have to go buy toilet rolls, dishwashing tablets and all the other stuff you normally do at other self catering places). I'm glad there are loads of towels and linen because it is a pain using the same stuff for 4-5 days. Big plus for me was its reasonably kid friendly, I didn't have to baby proof it or put everything out of reach of kids.

Only amenity lacking really is a washing machine / drier but given how important space is its not the end of the world.

It's pricey not much cheaper than a decent hotel, but if you're a large-ish group then it works out ok and you get more space and privacy. I would stay again.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The place was everything we'd hoped for. Four adults and a baby fitted nicely, it's a block from central park and pretty close to Broadway shows. We'll definitely be coming back!

Fantastic family option!

  • 5 of 5

We use the place for a family trip – four kids and two adults. It was simply wonderful – clean, spacious and well appointed. ( I especially loved the terrace!) The location is great: close to the park, super convenient to the subway, and lots of wonderful eating, shopping and fun options in the neighborhood. The whole process was also very convenient, and the owners were in contact to make sure we had what we needed for a great vacation (thank you Sheyla!) We really can't recommend it enough! We'll be back for sure.

The best thing about Columbus Circle is that you can get anywhere in Manhattan in 20 minutes or less. 1 block away you can get on 6 different trains, 3 of which are express trains. It's right next to Central Park and a close walk to Times Square. Its a premier address in NYC.

If you walk south, you are walking to Times Square and Midtown.

If you want west, you are heading into Hell's Kitchen were there are many incredible and reasonably priced restaurants.

East and you are going into Midtown were all the business action is.

North and you are going into the Upper West Side to go to the Natural History Museum or enjoy many of the fine restaurants and activities the area has to offer.

And of course, walk to the North/East and in just a few minutes you are in the middle of central park!

Columbus Circle also has a Whole Foods grocery store and an upscale Mall. Just search the internet for "the shops at columbus circle" to find a complete list.

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this neighborhood. Before I got this apartment I spent 6 months researching the pros and cons of every location. I went with this because its the best for business (Midtown), leisure (Central Park), culture (The Theater District) and near a major subway hub for quick access anywhere in the city.
