The owners have done a super job here. We were a family of 5 seeking a good value place to stay, whilst enjoying long days out in Manhattan. The upstairs apartment is 15 mins walk from the Astoria Blvd stop on the super-flexible 'N' line - and then on to the sights. We enjoyed staying in an authentic NYC neighbourhood and if you're self-catering, there are plenty of shops and a handy supermarket within a 10 minute walk. The apartment is tastefully decorated, clean, very well equipped and warm. Ilda was entirely accommodating and flexible about our arrival and leaving arrangements and helped us out with queries during our stay. The place worked out really well for us.
