    As I sit in this lovely apt. on our last morning here, enjoying a cup of tea, I just had to write to say how much we enjoyed our stay. Id say the main attraction of this apt is location. Right off of 5th Ave., 3 blocks from the Empire State Bldg Observatory Entrance, and 2 subway stops from Times Square, this apt is ideally situated for exploring the city. I counted 3 main subway stations within walking distance of the apt! The apt is on a direct line to the 911 Memorial (R Train), to Times Square (R Train), Lincoln Center (no. 1 train) and to Bloomingdales (No 6 train). There are lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Take a right out of the bldg and walk to the end of the block for a great convenience store/deli, where I purchased our breakfast each morning to bring back to the apt. Delicious bagel sandwiches! S'Mac, on 33rd and 3rd is also an easy walk from the apt and offers wonderful dishes at a great price! There is also a Bread and Butter on 5th Ave and 31st that literally offers anything you could want to eat, from Korean food, Japanese food, Italian, to NYC deli. They offer a great hot buffet that is very reasonable. The owner was very responsive to any requests I had and was a true delight to work with. He provided a detailed account of the neighborhood and the location of all amnenities one might need, including laundry, gym, and grocery stores, as well as restaurant recommendations. The apt itself is very comfortable and provides everything one might need during their stay. Tom has thoughtfully provided umbrellas in the closet, tea and coffee in the cupboard (along with many other condiments and toiletries) and the bed is one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept in. There is a full bathroom, including a tub. Those who are in the city for business will appreciate the large desk and desk lamp along with free wifi! The a/c worked wonderfully and was much appreciated during the muggy summer days. I cant think of a single thing lacking in this apt. It was just my son and I on this trip, but there is a blow up mattress, so Id think a family of 3 would also be quite comfortable here. The only caveat I would offer is that it is a 4th floor walk up, which might be challenging to the elderly or those with very young children, but for us, it was a welcome way to work off the delightful food we enjoyed in the city. Thanks again Tom for a wonderful stay. 03 August 2014 - 02:26:38

    Tom's apartment is a great place to stay. The location was amazing, especially since it was my first time visiting NYC. It's very convenient for shopping and sightseeing. The apartment is also very clean and well stocked with towels, blankets, kitchen/bathroom supplies etc. 27 August 2014 - 19:32:11

    Great place, perfect location, this is exactly what a traveller can expect upon getting to NYC for the first time. We arrived from France and, to begin with, the contact with Tom has been extremely easy. We were totally prepared at what should be expected and we just felt like coming back home. The apartment is very comfortable, nicely furnished, clear and clean. The kitchen is well equipped. He sent us an enormous amount of information about the place, the environment and everything one needs to know upon getting there. We could navigate in the city very easily, found a number of great places to visit, good restaurants and the wonderful jazz place at a walking distance from his place. Almost every good place in NYC can be reached by feet. The apartment is close to every attractive place, and sufficiently far from the too lively, much too crowed and busy ones, to remain very quiet and cozy. Metro stations are close by and the access from JFK is easy and fast. Tom has been thinking of every single item one may need in the apartment. One thinks about something, it's there, about something else, it's there too. Needless to say that whenever we return to NYC, hopefully a.s.a.p., this is the place we want to stay at, despite the 4 story stairs to climb, which is no big deal at all, and good for keeping in shape. We are very much looking forward to coming back 10 September 2014 - 21:03:31

    The apartment was clean and in a very convenient location. I also appreciated the quick response of the owner when I asked to check out late. Very kind owner and a great space. I would definitely recommend this place to friends. 05 November 2017 - 19:22:00

    Everything in walking distance. Very safe. We were able to stay out late at night and got home safe. Had some troubles with shower, but it didn't ruin our experience. No elevator, might be hard to get up for older people. Would recommend t to my friends. 14 October 2015 - 17:51:47

    after a grueling drive from Montreal, we fell into that fabulous bed and slept like babies! Woke up and had a couple of delicious cappucinos (thanks for the coffee and milk), and were ready to take on one of the great cities of the world. Fabulous lunch in nearby Korea town, loved being mid-town with its easy access up to the Met or down to the Village. Even parked for nothing right in front of the apartment over the weekend! Appreciated being able to cook and the generously-shared condiments and spices. Really felt at home and didn't want to leave. Ah yes, the shower head: my husband said it was an IQ test (I failed) As I recall the button is hidden under the bathspout, no? 09 November 2015 - 23:22:14

    My daughter and I spent four nights in this wonderfully located apartment. We walked to Times Square, the Theatre District, took the subway to Harlem for food and music, and taxied to the museums. We always felt safe and locals were great at helping us find the right train line and transfers. We ate breakfast in every day and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the city the rest of the day. Four floors with luggage can be taxing, but after that, the climb was much easier. Great food and entertainment all around! I will stay here again next time I'm in town if this clean and comfortable apartment is available! 18 January 2016 - 00:38:09

    My husband and I rented this apartment for our daughter and her boyfriend. It seemed like a very nice place and they really liked it. I think the only reason I might not stay is that I prefer places with fewer personal items, but for the price and the location, it was great. They had a blast! 18 February 2016 - 21:32:07

    Tom's apartment was great for two people. It was clean and comfortable and well stocked with linens, dishes, soap and supplies. The bed was super comfortable! When need, Tom was easy to reach and very helpful. The stairs were a bit of a challenge with our luggage but we were aware of them before we rented and they were not a problem. The location was perfect for us and the neighborhood very safe. We felt comfortable walking at night to restaurants but if we needed a taxi, one was always available out on 5th. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Tom! 03 February 2017 - 17:57:58

    My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Toms apartment! There were no surprises as we found the apartment to be exactly as represented. Upon booking, I was pleased with the very clear instructions we were provided, which prevented us from ever needing to contact the owner for questions or concerns. We did, coincidentally, meet the building superintendent when we arrived who was quite pleasant and willing to help should we need anything. The apartment was clean and cozy, and just enough space for the two of us. The bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. My daughter chose to sleep on the air mattress which was of very good quality, and would be perfectly suitable for an adult. We also had no problems finding extra sheets and blankets. The location was perfect for walking to many of the sights that people come to see when staying in the city, and even when arriving home late into the evening we never felt unsafe. We found many great places to eat right within walking distance whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The only complaint I can muster up is that I found old coffee grounds from a previous guest in the coffee maker. Oh well, a small miss, for an otherwise lovely stay. Would I stay again? You bet! 02 July 2017 - 16:36:00

    Pros: great location,comfy queen bed, spacious for nyc ( so we are told) , good water pressure and no bugs! Cons: Old and non glamorous building - apartment in need of updating. Street entrance very rough and leads to very narrow stairs. You will be greeted by garbage and recycle cans upon entry. Please know that at this point I was getting a bit nervous because I did the bookings and relied on comments left by previous guest. My wife is a trooper but even Im not sure whats going on. As we hauled our heavy bags up the 4 flights I could only pray that when we opened the apartment doors we would have a pleasant surprise! Unfortunately the first thing we saw was duct tape holding the wood floors together in the entry. ( later discovered 2 prewar nail heads when I stepped on with bare feet) . Next stop the kitchen - good size fridge and some leftover supplies from previous guest which was nice. The countertop is small tiles that have lost their grout what looks like years ago. Black something now fills the voids- not only is this unsightly but really quite unsanitary. A mis match of utensils,dishes and 2 very used coffee cups will get you by. We did not eat in so morning coffee and occasional reheating leftovers was the extent of our kitchen use. This apartment is located on top floor so neighbor noice was not an issue. What was an issue is the construction noice. Immediately next door there is a high rised building under construction. Directly below the apartment on the street is the staging area for all deliveries including the off loading of endless concrete trucks. Construction starts promptly st 6am Monday- Saturday and wrap is up about 6pm. You will hear every sound as you can even hear voices from the street when the construction has stopped. Would recommend very good ear plugs. Blinds inexpensive plastic mini blinds that do not darken room. Upon our arrival one fell out of its loose bracket - Im a builder so easy fix - too bad it was within the first 10 minutes of entering the apartment. The bath - well lets just leave this at functional and plenty of tp and shampoos etc. Seriously give at least 5 minutes plus for hot water to reach the apartment - great water pressure ! Finally - neighbors below unit must be smokers as hint of cigarette smoke would make it into our unit. Just for the record - we had a great time in NYC. We were out and about all day everyday and usually arrived home after 8pm. The apartment was functional. 24 November 2017 - 18:13:00

    We had a great time on our first trip to NYC- this was great location to walk most anywhere and the room was very comfy. Would stay again and again! 04 December 2017 - 13:08:00

    This was my second time staying in one of Tom's properties and this go round was as good as the first i.e., wonderful! I love this place - the bed is so comfy and the apartment is cozy and a great place to return to at the end of a busy day! The location is super. I highly recommend staying here if you are in New York and want to feel like a New Yorker. Tom is very responsive so anything you need, he is on it quickly. There are some stairs, but I am 60 and had no trouble! 04 December 2017 - 15:53:00

    Tom was awesome and responded very quickly to all my questions. The property is located right in the middle of garment district and near everything (time square, Madison square garden and all the sub/train stations). The place was cozy and has everything u need for a stay away from home!!! Whenever I plan to come to NY, I will be sure to check the availability here first. 13 December 2017 - 16:16:00

    It was a pleasure to stay at Tom's property again. The studio is very clean and comfortable. Location is absolutely perfect for exploring Manhattan. Looking forward to booking it again next time I am in NYC. 13 December 2017 - 11:01:00

    It was a great stay! Close to lots!! The bed was super comfortable! Just make sure you can carry your luggage up 4 flights of stairs! Will definitely stay here again! 15 December 2017 - 15:43:00

    All nights were great and apartment is nicely appointed. When it was cold on the first night, Tim made sure I had a room heater the following day. Early mornings were full of backing trucks and banging hammers from construction of building next store. Good value overall. Look forward to coming back. 21 January 2018 - 21:33:00
