“East Harlem not Upper East Side”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 for a stay in November 2012
6
people found this review helpful

The apartment was clean and easy to find. It was near the subway station and did have a police station across the road. It was however according to the few maps that we looked at located in East Harlem not on the Upper East Side, as advertised.
As normal people live in the apartment block and they go to work, it was very noisy from about 6am to 9am. I understand a bit of noise because it is the centre of New York, but these people were extremely noisy and it actually annoyed me because the landlord had said to us in all correspondence 'please be quiet' and there was no consideration for us.
It was good value for money for New York, because hotels are extremely expensive. The landlord was very friendly and approachable.

“Would not stay there again”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks. And we had unfortunetly some problems...

Let's start with the good side.

The apartment is literally next to the subway. And 5 minutes walk from Central Park. There are also many good restaurants; Moutache on the corner (Iranian), Joy Burgers on Lexington (best burger in NY). The grocery store is also very close to home.

Matteo is adorable and whenever we needed him, he responded quickly.

Now the bad.

And I must say that if you are sensitive to noise like us or you're not used to hearing a lot of noise in your home, this apartment is not for you.

If you are NOT sensitive to noise, this apartment is for you.

Because the concept of renting an apartment in New York is that we want to live at home. Is not it? Well, the building is not a building for tourists. People actually live there.

The apartment we rented is located at the entrance of the building and each morning we did wake up from 6:30 am by tenants who would work. Basically, the main door slammed every time someone entered or left the building.

Matteo has tried as best he could to resolve the problem but no real results. This building is not made for tourists.

The kitchen has only two small pans under the kitchen cabinet. Not very practical for cooking.

The freezer works very poorly. We lost food.

The bed is not very comfortable. This is merely a small mattress very hard. You will have aches if you are used to having a good mattress!

It is for these various reasons we will not rent this apartment again.

This is very unfortunate because the apartment is very well located in Manhattan but with many small problems.

Management Response

Let’s start from the beginning:
This is an apartment in Manhattan, not an hotel in a countryside.
I am surprised and disappointed to receive these kinds of reviews.

This apartment never had a single complaint of people that have stayed there.
Of course this building, like all the hundreds of buildings in the city, has other people that live in the same building; there is an entrance, an exit, people coming and leaving.
If you are not experienced with apartments but are asking what is the specific kind of shampoo and soap I can provide like these guests did, ok, this is probably not the right place.
The problem at the door (if it was a problem) has been fixed. I don’t want to talk about the kitchen, fridge, mattress; these are just trivial matters. Again, everybody was happy with those and everything works fine.

I am available to provide references of all the people that have stayed there.

I believe that every person has his opinion; I respect what these guests said, but this is not the right mentality if you decide to book an apartment.
This is not an hotel; this is a comfortable, clean, safe and quiet place to stay during your vacation, whether you are tourists, businessmen, students or anything.

If you have any questions or concerns let me know.

Thanks.
