I booked up New York as a surprise for my boyfriend.We went on 22 November for 5 nights.
When we arrived at the apartment Simon came and greeted us and gave us some tips and helped us with finding where we wanted to go. The apartment was just what we expected from the pictures! It was lovely and modern and clean. It was easy enough to get into Times Square via the subway which was just down the road.
Simon was very good on one occasion when I needed to see a doctor/get to a hospital and he came to the apartment to see how I was and to tell us where was best to go. It was just unfortunate that we ended up loosing a day of sightseeing because of it.
If you don't want to be right in the middle of it all and the busyness then the apartment is great for you. We both loved New York, but found 5 nights just wasn't enough in the end!
Also just a bit of advise when you arrive at the airport do not use a black cab! They rip you off, always get a yellow cab! From the airport to the apartment it should be 60-70 dollars, we got charged 220! Won't be making that mistake again!
Thanks again Simon for your help during our stay!
