I recently rented this apartment on two occasions, and i was very happy with it. It is an excellent value for midtown manhattan, and I would know since ive lived in midtown for the last few years; I was in-between apts. and it fit my needs very well. The location is great, very convenient. There was always a doorman on duty, and felt safe in the bldg. I cant imagine getting a comfortable studio w/ a bathroom and kitchen at that price in this neighborhood.
I liked the wall of windows, and the light in the morning. The pullout coach was also very comfortable. Even though its used during the day as an office and part of the apt is in use, there was plenty of desk space/chairs, and more than enough room to move around. I liked the the plenty of dishes, utensils, fridge space.
Joann was a pleasure to deal with and was very responsive to any questions, etc.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to both visitors and city residents needing a temporary place.
