Decided to book apt this time for our stay although the picture is not the same apt we stayed in. The apt was in a brownstone and a 5 min walk to subway either line and 20 min ride to times square although we were entertained most time by train dancers the laundromat is 1 block away in Amsterdam st, great kid works there and very helpful.
now to the apt- large enough for the 5 of us clean and the furniture was fine The apt was updated except for a few problems The toilet blocked and overflowed and after running to the store buying bleach and paper towel came back to find well used plunger in bathroom cupboard. Was advised that our females must have blocked it which was not the case, the super came and unblocked it next morning and then chucked the snake in the bathtub(feral) lucky I bought bleach to scrub the tub out with.the toilet is blocked further down and I could hear it I'm a plumber but it did for our week.The electricity kept blowing out and was told our hair dryer must be causing it I ran around to every room and removed the electric air fresheners and the air conditioner plugs and had no more problems although I think it needs checking the neighbours were pleasant enough and the area was quiet however I would not want to be here in summer. It was light but don't open the blinds as you only look in junky backyards. The electric heater in the lounge and the heater in the kids room weren't much heating.I blocked the windows with the wind blowing in with towels which I might add were good quality and plenty of What we needed was a list to tell you when the rubbish is collected, where the plunger and bleach are and instructions on resetting the meter box and.a rubbish bag extra. instead of information about not telling the neighbours we were there they already know. all in all it was fine and would have been better with a little more helpful tips and no I did not want a late checkout.
We were in New York for college visits and this was the perfect place to get explore another part of the city. Truly enjoyed our stay.
This was a nice apartment in a good quiet location of Harlem. My family enjoyed our time here. Alexis was very friendly and easy to reach with any questions. I had a little problem booking ,but she was very helpful and everything worked out great. We used the transportation offered through Alexis which made the trip from and to the airport easy. I would definitely book with her again.
Fantastic apartment. Good location and easy access by subway into Downtown New York. Alexis was very helpful before and during our stay. Thank you.
