Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Midtown Manhattan - E55th Street

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 2; close to Central Park, mid-town

This is a sizable (70 m2/ 750 sq ft) New York apartment on a high floor in a luxury building with a 24-hour doorman and elevator and 10 foot ceilings. The apartment is elegantly comfortable. It is right down the street from the St. Regis and The Peninsula hotels, close to everything NYC has to offer, either by foot or by the nearby subway and buses or taxi. It features high ceilings, an entrance hall, ample light, excellent furniture and art and a spectacular view of New York skyscrapers to the west. Wonderful queen size bed with great sheets, sleeps two. The apartment was renovated 3 years ago so kitchen and bathroom are new with on-site washer and dryer.

Located in Midtown East, the apartment is in the heart of Manhattan. It is minutes' walk from Rockefeller Center, Broadway, Central Park, shopping and the 'Museum Mile' of Madison Avenue with plenty of restaurants and amenities nearby. Very close to subway/ train stations to get you to Tribeca, Queens, Brooklyn or Harlem in less than 20 minutes.

Now includes free HD television, WI-FI, local and national phone calls.

An Ideal Place in Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

My first impression on stepping into the apartment was space, a rare commodity in Manhattan. The ceilings are high and the rooms spacious, with a fantastic view. The living room is furnished with handsome Art Deco upholstered chairs and loveseat; the kitchen is sparkling and fully stocked with equipment; the bathroom was spotlessly clean. The bedroom is also spacious and the bed itself has something like a Tempurpedic mattress -- perfect after a long day of sight-seeing and nighttime theater. My correspondence with John were excellent and he couldn't have been more helpful: a true gentleman. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to taste genuine -- not "touristy" -- New York life on the East Side. There's a Whole Foods nearby, super restaurants in the neighborhood, and Bloomingdale's is only three blocks up Lexington Avenue. I could walk almost everywhere, and when I needed to take transportation the subway was just two blocks away; crosstown busses are two blocks in the other direction. What could be more convenient? This is a perfect place for a New York stay, whether for business or pleasure. Highly, highly recommended by a grateful guest.

Too good to be true!

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent New York City traveller and having stayed in at least ten different hotels , it was eye opening to find an entire apartment and experience a cost savings to boot.

It is a wonderful apartment in a great central location. Doormen always on duty. Easy walking distance to theater, shopping, restuarants and sights.

Apartment itself is spacious, immaculately clean and nicely appointed. It has a large L shape living/dining room and a spacious bedroom with ample closet space.

Plan to return often to this home away from home as well as recommending it to friends.

Spacious, clean and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a nicely sized one bedroom, that is much bigger than most NYC apartments, with high ceilings that made it feel even bigger. Compared to a hotel room, it was about three times the size plus a full kitchen and bath. The apartment was centrally located with quick access to a taxi, subway or bus but we ended up walking most places. Central Park is ten minute walk away. The apartment had nice details with an eclectic mix of upscale art and furniture.

Very well appointed and furnished

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very well located and security is good. Access is easy and the flat itself very well appointed and furnished. And the facilities and amenities were first class. Very tasteful and plentiful. It is a very comfortable flat and is well looked after by John who obviously takes pride in his things. John was very helpful and always available, although we did not trouble him.

The only drawback was the street noise which was uncomfortably loud through the night. But this is midtown New York.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kinds words. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and liked the apartment so much. I am sorry that you had the extra noise at night during New Year's Eve. I do have a white noise machine and earplugs available for people sensitive to noise. Most of the year it is very quiet at night in midtown. Thank you for staying at my apartment and I look forward to your next visit. Cheers, J.

The place was clean and maintained

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very good, the place was just like it was indicated by other reviews very clean and well maintained. It was around many restaurants, John the owner had places to eat, and things to do for us. It was very organized, close to all attractions. The only item that we had was that the sofa was very small, and the chairs were backwards from the TV, I would arrange differently,, Other than that the place was great.
