Very clean and very warm, pretty much as shown in photos.
This apartment was very convenient for visiting with family in the neighbourhood and also for accessing Manhattan. It’s in a nice quiet street with a great supermarket close by. 3 adults were accommodated very comfortably and the 2 issues we had, accessing internet and hot water, were resolved quickly and efficiently. A few additions would have enhanced our stay; a kettle (we brits like our tea & boiling water in a pan is not ideal), kitchen scissors and better pillows on the bed. That apartment is very warm and adjusting the heating was a challenge at first but we got it to a comfortable temperature in time. To some the Kitchen might appear a bit “tired” but the cooker and fridge were excellent and clean and since we did very little cooking, it was more than adequate. We would be happy to book this apartment again.
La semana pasada estuvimos ahí, fue nuestra primera vez en New York, una experiencia maravillosa, el apartamento, una belleza, excelente ubicación, excelente aseo, muy acogedor, esto contribuyó para que nos sintiéramos en nuestra propia casa. todo impecable, muy bien equipado, con todo lo necesario para una estadía maravillosa. Rodrigo, una excelente persona, anuente a ayudar en todo lo que pueda, una persona muy amable y confiable.
Muchas gracias Rodrigo, su apartamento fue una de las mejores decisiones para nuestro viaje.
What you see is what you get.
The apartment is as you look at the pictures ... you get what you see.
The apartment is ok to spend the night and stay in. Beds need replacing (really - ask if it is done if you consider the Apartment... main reason for (3) 4 stars and not 5)
It is close to the subway and from there only 15 minutes to the center. The area has its own charm, and fine experience as a contrast to stay in Manhatten Center. There is a supermarket right next door. We preferred to eat breakfast in the apartment. There were not many brunch options nearby (a single one).
Rodrigo (ovwer) is a nice guy and helpful if their are any issues.
photos and price hooked me
On May 26, 2015, I paid Rodrigo a deposit to book this apartment for a 10 night stay, June 19-29. I did not actually stay at this property because less than 48 hours before my family and I flew to New York, Rodrigo emailed me and said it was not available. He offered to switch us to his friend Julie's apartment that was in the same neighborhood. So close to our holiday, and in high season, I felt I had no choice but to accept. Unfortunately things were not quite as expected. I killed cockroaches every day, and slept poorly most nights due to unsatisfactory bedding, Julie's dog barking, and Julie having a super noisy late night party. Rodrigo apologized later for the problems but blamed his friend and he did nothing to help while we were in NYC. Bottom line is that all payments, deposits, rent, refunds... went through Rodrigo. Also, he was the one who broke his promise by cancelling a reservation last minute. I asked him and his friend Julie for financial compensation but that did not happen.
I believe that Rodrigo Gonzalez is using his property #185763 to "bait" visitors coming to NYC then "switches" them to other properties that he also manages. Also he was very slow to respond to emails.
Great value for the price!
I didn't actually stay in this exact apartment, as the same owner had a more suitable option for me in a studio apartment, but as far as the location, pricing and everything goes, I loved City Life Management! Rodrigo was super nice (even though I didn't really even need him for anything during the week I stayed at their place as everything worked perfect), the apartment was clean and fully equipped and the neighborhood surprisingly peaceful, considering that it's just a couple of blocks from a bit more restless areas :)
I would definitely recommend anybody travelling to NYC on a budget to contact these people for availability.
Best time ever!
I can't tell you enough great things about this apartment and Rodrigo! We stayed in the apartment for 10 days and it was so fantastic! When we arrived it was larger than the pictures showed it to be and it was so clean. We didn't have to worry about towels or linens...all it took was shooting Rodrigo a quick text and he was on it! The neighborhood is safe. The building was quite. We were just a couple of blocks from the L train...and the walk was so nice. The coffee shop on the corner before the train is so cute and the staff was so friendly. And for the late night walks home the gyro truck was so delicious. I will no doubt stay here again. Thank you so much Rodrigo!
Thank you Mary for taking the time to leave a review. I'm glad you enjoyed the apartment and we will definitely be glad to host you again in the future.
The apartment is located in Ridgewood, a nice, safe, residential neighborhood on the border of (Bushwick) Brooklyn and Queens. We have a supermarket steps from the apartment, a restaurant-cafe a block away and a grocery store 150 feet away. There is also free street parking. The commute to Manhattan is very convenient. We are just 3 blocks (4 minute walk) from the subway (L train) and 8 stops from 14Th Street Union Square (Manhattan). The L train takes less than 2 min per stop, so you'll be in Manhattan (Union Square, Chelsea, East Village, West Village, Soho, Gramercy Flatiron) in 15 to 20 minutes.
