We went in New York in February 2012 for 8 days and we chose the Bubba and Bean apartments. We were 2 people but they gave us an apartmen for 4 people! Inside you'll find everything you need, the kitchen full optional :) dishes, glasses, pots, forks, spoons, knives, a kettle, matches, napkins.. then.. a veeery big fridge (with the freezer), a very big oven and a microwave. In that apartment there were a king bed and 2 single beds, a table (with a welcome basket with maps, a new york guide, coffe and some fruits, tea, sugar..). The heater system includes 2 radiators (automatic) and an electric fan heater and with that you can set the temperature you want also if the radiators are not switched on. The bathroom is little but it's enough for one week and it's clean. Next to the bathroom there is a closet where you can put your bags and coats. In our room (number 5) there were also a tv lcd about 32".
The apartment is really clean and every 2 days they clean all and when you come back home in the evening is clean and tidy as the first day :)
The housekeeper Victor, and the owners Jonathan and Clement are really friendly and helpful (and absolutly not intrusive).
The subway is 50 meters down the street, and you can also find some restaurants. If you prefer to cook you must go to Gourmet Garage in the 96th, it's a little supermarket but you can find fresh and good things.
The zone is really safe also if it hadn't a great reputation in the past. Now there is the police everywhere in Manhattan. In 8 days probably we did at least 5/6 metal detectors in the city attractions plus the airport controls with the body scanner!
The only thing I didn't like there was the noise from the street also if we were at the third floor. Probably because we are from the countryside and we are not used to the traffic of a city like New York :)
Anyway it doesn't matter :) It was a great vacation! We reccomend Bubba and Bean apartments!
