Being able to stay in an apartment and not a hotel room was a great experience. The apartment is pretty spacious for New York and considering the location (at the heart of NYU's campus in the Village) the price is fantastic. You'll likely pay $200-$300 for a hotel room in a decent location, so I am so glad I found this place at such a great price. The only thing to be weary about would be the fact that it is a ground floor room and if you want to leave your windows open you can hear people talking right next to you on the other side of the screen almost all night (there are bars on the window, however, so it's not a safety issue). I would recommend this place for anyone looking to live like a local in the Village, shop in SoHo, and be walking distance from a bunch of nightlife. It's probably not for those who are looking for a "family" vacation, but if you're coming to NYC for that then you're better off in a hotel, to be honest. Overall, a great experience. Would stay here again.
