    Попали на небывалые морозы, поэтому в номере было прохладно, под дверью в коридор очень большая щель, приходилось затыкать её пакетами. Поэтому и плохая шумоизоляция двери, но номеров на этаже мало, так что не критично. Очень шумные кондиционеры! Скрежет и грохот при каждом включении. Нервным людям будет нелегко). Очень небольшие встроенные шкафы, один для верхней одежды и один в спальне, мало вешалок. В ванной комнате неудобно хранить косметику и краситься. Но тут явно лучше, чем в AKA Central Park. Душ по-американски неудобный, из стены. Нет ёршика в туалете. Хотелось бы иметь плед в гостиной.

    Очень удачное расположение, тихо, спокойно и до всего рядом. Все в пешей доступности, так же много общественного транспорта. До Grand Central Station 500 метров. Апартаменты оборудованы мини-кухней ( газ плита на 2 конфорки, микроволновка, чайник, тостер, полноценный холодильник с морозилкой). Быстрый и надежный интернет. В подвале есть стиральные и сушильные машины, которыми можно бесплатно пользоваться. Уборка в номере раз в неделю, но можно за дополнительную плату заказать любое количество раз. В холле 24/7 чай, кофе бесплатно. Спортзал небольшой и не совсем удачный, но он есть. Две дорожки, эллипс, велик, два многофункциональный тренажёра, набор гантелей. На мой взгляд, у отеля идеальное сочетание цены и качества. Жили в этой сети отелей у Центрального парка, но здесь намного лучше. Будем тут останавливаться еще.

    The location was great, just 5mins walk from Grand central, so everything was within reach. The lounge/kitchen was stunning , well equipped, and quite luxurious. Was ideal for a small family to stay in. The bedroom was very comfortable, Great views from our balcony. Could even see the top of the chrysler building Staff were always kind, and attentive to us and our baby. Made us feel very welcome. We would love to stay again in the future.

    We had a noise from the heating plumbing that kept us up all night. A constant "tock tock". The day after we got moved and the engineers said that they will bleed the system which should solve the problem. Well, it did not. Without earplugs it was impossible to sleep. After a colpaint we got a refund for one night. Nice gesture, but we will not stay there again. For this price i want to have a good night sleep without ear plugs.

    Appartments are great. Big and clean. Very nice.

    ​Amazing flats in Turtle Bay (Manhattan) in a quiet place near the United Nations (5 minutes from Grand Central) with good services and 24h reception. My flat was modern, clean and spacious, well equipped and very comfortable, . Good services provided (gym, lounge with free coffee and tea, private garden) and efficient supporting staff.

    No comment

    We booked this property because we thought we will need more space during our stay in New York, which was for 8 days. The property may not be the cheaper, but everything is exceptional to the smallest details. We booked the property with included breakfast, which is no longer available, but the staff was very apologetic and this was also reflected in the final price, so it was ok with us. The property is very big for Manhattan and we had fully equipped kitchenette to prepare a meal for any time of the day if you wish. The property included a lot of space for clothes and could be rented on a longer term as well. The staff on the reception was always helpful and very professional and the flat was very well cleaned (the cleaning is once per week and our cleaner came on the third day, so it worked perfectly for us).

    The living area had see through curtain which makes it impossible for someone to sleep there after sunrise. Needs a blackout or proper curtain in the living area. Apartment is a bit dim, needs ceiling lights to brighten it.

    Spacious, clean and modern apartment on a fairly quiet street.
