Overall I was very pleased with this rental. Some helpful tips to future renters: It is up two flights of very steep stairs, so the elderly/unfit may struggle. It is very close to public transportation! We were able to get around via subway or metro bus easily. There is really nothing stocked in the apt except toilet paper, hand soap and dish soap. You will need to bring/get bath soap, paper towels, any cooking seasonings including salt and pepper. There were plenty of towels, dishes, silverware, etc. Mr. Garcia, our host, was very nice and answered any questions we had. There is not really cable TV. There is wifi and Roku available, and you can use your own login to access whatever channels you subscribe to. There is a very handy Dunkin Donuts just steps away for morning coffee which is great. The "booking helpers" business that sends email confirmations for travel mob was not my favorite. They actually emailed an address that was different than the confirmation email and also sent emails about payment when I paid via the site upon booking. It all ended well, but caused some stress along the way that made me question if the property listing was legit. I would recommend this property, it is a good location!
My wife, and our two children stayed at this residence. Mr. Garcia was an excellent host that was accommodating, and very concerned that our needs were met. The apartment is as advertised, with of course the pictures making it seem bigger than it actually is. Even though the apartment is a typical small New York apartment, it had plenty of room for us to relax together and apart. One subway station extremely close (two to five minute walk), while another is only 10-15 minutes away. Be aware that the master bedroom is right above the street, so that if people walk by, you will hear their conversations (we heard quite a few lively ones). The apartment was very clean, and had all the linen and silverware that we needed for our stay.
