After a series of delays on booking we decided to book West 46th Street Appointments and in our haste we neglected to look at the reviews

If we'd have gone off reviews alone we wouldn't have booked these appointments, but while it is far from perfect the reality isn't as bad as the 1* and 2* reviewers make out

PROS
The location is nigh on perfect for New York and less than 5 minutes walk from Times Square and right in the centre of the restaurant / bar district

Due to this we found getting around to other areas of the city very easy and used Yellow Cabs to further out areas which didn't cost the earth

Also the wifi worked absolutely fine for the whole 8 days we were there and compared to some UK WiFi options the apartments wifi was at the speedier end of the market. We had emailed a week before about Wifi being essential for work so this may have had something to do with it

The weather was warm throughout our stay so had no problems with heating - in fact I slept on the top of the bed and didn't need a duvet

CONS
The stairs are very steep to get to the top of the apartments - we're healthy mid 30s men and found it tiring to climb after a day sightseeing

The locks for the doors worked, but were hard to open and close

The bath did have a stain on the bottom of it which was acceptable enough for showering, but wouldn't have felt comfortable bathing in it. Shower was strong and warm enough

There was a lot of dust around the bathroom despite a cleaner in the apartment when we arrived.

Although this may be standard for apartments over hotels - we didn't have a cleaner changing bed sheets for the 8 days we were there

WOULD I STAY AGAIN?
As a central location the apartments work in the summer and although I would have preferred a hotel - the apartments suited our stay

I would stay in warmer months, but wouldn't visit in the Winter due to other reviews

To be honest the apartment was a little dingy, having said that my family and I stayed there for a week in apartment 3R there were a few issues that were resolved quite quickly but did take us nagging at staff to get issues sorted. we did request an extra heater which was provided and the apartment felt very cosy, we did have to put a towel at bottom of the door due to gap. The bed was extremely comfortable and my twins 17 were quite happy on the put up futons in the room.It is a shame that the management don't put some finishing touches to the apartment like just hanging the pictures up and maybe net curtains as we'll so you can actually open the curtains and have daylight in
So the good points
Great location for Time Square and Empire State Building Central Park and the theatres are all within a short walking distance the subway to downtown New York is also located in Times Square where you can take the R train or no 1 train to 9/11 memorial or Battery Park for the Statue of Liberty cost each way is approximately $2.50 you just buy a metro card at the subway station
On the next block which is right at the traffic lights up from the apt on west 45th street you will find an awesome restaurant called Juniors famous for its cheesecakes but the food is Devine ! The famous Katz deli is located downtown on East Euston again you can get the sub to there again cost 2.50$ if you get yellow cab they charged us 20$ to get there but we caught the subway back
If you want to go to a broadway show get your ticket on the day from the ticket office by at the back of the red steps in time square they are discounted by upto 50 % having said that on a Saturday queues start early in aft
If you are getting a cab from the airport at Newark get a yellow cab the cost with toll charges should be around 75$ Don't let the guys in the airport sway you that happened to us and cost us 30$ more

Room Tip: Room 3R was spacious

Biggest mistake of my life ever staying here. It was expensive, and I did not feel at all safe. I moved out early. The manager was off site, and unhelpful. Locks on the front doors don't work, large gap under the doors meant the apartment was like an ice box. The window on the lower level had been broken, and was patched up with cardboard. Sparks flew out of electric sockets. Wifi only worked occasionally.

I paid 2400 USD for 6 nights, which was the same price as a good hotel.

The description says 51 sq meters surface, but it's at most 30 sq meters.

Look at the pictures and take your own conclusions. Appartment filthy, chairs stained, painting peeling off, bed sheets dirty and stained, sofa broken. Filthy building. orst of wall, large gap on the window,filled in with plastic (insufficient) and large gap beneath entrance door created a current of icy air inside the apartment. All the heaters turned on at the same time were not enough to heat the place!

During the night a mouse came in through the gap beneath the door.

Total nightmare.I left after one night.

The bedroom was like a closet.
The heat was not working, I called management twice and they never showed up as promised. The lobby was dark and dingy.The dining room chairs as well as the counter stools had stains in them. The living room wall near the futon was damaged. We had 2 heaters in the apartment and only one worked. The front door (bottom lock) would stick where we couldn't get the door open.The toilet seat was stained,the left window blind wouldn't open. The lobby inside and outside was dirty. The bedroom closet had an unusual odor.

Room Tip: The only benefit was excellent location.The building itself overall had major heating and property damage issues. The inside of building was dark and dirty. The management ignored my complaints.
