“Really good choice for a family”
Reviewed 27 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013
people found this review helpful

This was my first apartment rental in NYC: I know this is a controversial issue with a complex set of rules and regulations (see forum posts - there is a lot of confusion and inaccuracies).
This apt was in a small building (I think 5 in total - all of which seemed rented to me) and so seemed to comply with rules as far as I could tell.
HGS were helpful from the first contact and provided all the info I asked - there was a minor problem with the dishwasher during our stay and that was promptly dealt with. So I can only praise HGS.
The apartment itself:
LARGE - two big bedrooms with a sofa bed. Great for 4 people, probably just OK for 6. Main bedroom is at the back so is quiet and has a terrace (good in warmer months) with a kingsize bed (bed was OK rather than great but perfectly acceptable). Great bathroom with a super shower room.
Second bedroom is noisier (on Lex Ave so expected) but very roomy with two large single beds. Smaller bathroom but perfectly OK.
Nice open kitchen/dining area which connects to TV space where sofa(bed) is...essentially the apt runs from one end of the house to the other and is probably the size of 4 hotel bedrooms if not more. Also, a utility room and large walk-in cupboard.
Very clean with good sheets and towels (I do wish guests did not use towels for make up but an issue only on a couple..stains rather than dirt). Nice set of toiletries too.
The apt is reached up some stairs to level 2...common area worn but not dowdy. Good security with an access gate to the cute front courtyard and the main door to the house. Small CCTV set helps you check who is buzzing. Very good wi-fi.
Great location near Metro stations and 5 mins from Empire State Building (visible from front bedroom) ...50m from the famous Penelope Cafe' (thats another story..)
We had a great time and saved money vs a 4* hotel equivalent...will certainly return next time I travel to the city with the family.
