The accommodation was as advertised.
The cutlery and kitchenware is clean and neatly stored, kitchen better equipped than expected in addition to the normal toaster, kettle, microwave there was a blender, filter coffee machine (filters in the cupboard), Tassimo type coffee machine plus some coffee capsules.
Location was good easy stroll to grove street station 2 stops to world trade centre or go all way up to 33rd street. Need to be aware how the payment works on the Path(NJ) and Metro(NY) separate systems, and how to get the best value out of each system ie path 2.75 a ride or 2.10 a ride if you bulk purchase the rides on a path card which you can get from WTC, we used 1 path card and tapped each person in on one card. The metro we bought time so we had a weeks pass on a metro card one metro card for each person, on the first day was confusing to get in to Manhattan you had to buy a single journey to get to WTC before you could buy the Path card, if you use the metro card on the path you pay max amount per journey and we were not the only ones in the station trying to figure it out.
Take a stroll up to the Hudson at night next to Exchange Place station, great view of Manhattan lit up at night there is a walk way along the river looks better if you get away from the main brightly lit viewing area.
Taxi at airport or phone a black car service when asking for a price ask about tolls and tip as these are extras that you will be expected to pay. Prices in shops are generally more at the till where they add tax.
Overall had a good time and would recommend this accommodation felt safe walking around the area we liked the Gringo restaurant round the corner and tried the Brownstone diner which was OK.
