What a great find!

  • 5 of 5

We found this absolute gem by chance but what a great find. We spent a week there with our 2 daughters in late July. It is really well positioned in Harlem, making it very easy to get around and see as much of Manhattan as you want to. The accomodation was lovely, even better than we expected from viewing the website. We aren't great fans of impersonal hotels and this appartment was perfect for us - really well furnished and comfortable. Michele is a great hostess, very friendly and helpful. This was our second visit to NYC and we had a lovely holiday. We will definitely go back again soon and have already recommended Michele's apartment to several friends.

Owner's Response: We know what is it like to travel as a family and hope we can offer an affordable solution for a place to stay for a family on a budget, leaving you with a little more in your pocket to use exploring this wonderful city. We can provide a fold out bed to keep the children from having to share a full size bed, which from my experience is critical to a good nights sleep after long days of exploring. Michele

Brilliant first taste of New York!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here at this lovely apartment - everything we needed was there, and there were so many additional extra touches which really made a difference, like the breakfast items provided and all laid out for the morning after our arrival. Michele (ably assisted by Jodi) was such a lovely friendly source of help and info for us first-timers; we were very well looked-after, and as another reviewer has mentioned, Michele strikes exactly the right balance between providing a helpful and supportive presence and respecting her guests' privacy. Enjoyed spending time in this part of NY, and would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of NYC, greatly appreciated! Our family here enjoy what we do, inviting you into our home, providing privacy but here to assist as you need. We understand that you may come from a small village and find the city a very different experience from where you came, so we feel it's important to explain how the city runs so you step outside with confidence to enjoy the hustle and bustle.. returning to a quiet spot at the end of the day.

It's really quite exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for 5 people based primarily on price, we are a mixed group and hotels are very expensive.

What an absolute bonus the apartment was and it was a major factor in us having an unforgettable first trip to NYC.

Michele has thought of everything and has the balance just right, being thoughtful & helpful but not being intrusive. She helped us to understand the subway and gave some very useful tips on keeping safe. She had bought in some provisions to ensure we had drinks and cereal for breakfast after our late arrival. It was great to have extras like travel adaptors, kettle, washing up supplies, hair dryers and condiments (we've stayed many places where these type of things are not supplied)

The area of Harlem felt safe at all times and we enjoyed eating there more than in the hustle of Downtown.

As our trip came to an end, Michele helped by printing our boarding passes and arranging our transport to JFK.

To summarise the whole experience from the initial enquiry was straightforward and I would highly recommend Lotus Accommodation

Excellent stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5

This is excellent accommodation in NYC! There are two very comfortable bedrooms on opposite ends of the unit, providing privacy for both rooms. Beds are very comfortable, towels are plentiful, and the kitchen is fully functional. The unit is within easy walking distance to two different subway lines, and there are plenty of dining options within walking distance as well. The neighborhood is safe and very vibrant. Its a great sanctuary from Manhattan, and you can be in the city within 30 minutes. I highly recommend this as an option for up to five people. The pictures are accurate, as I stayed in early August 2016.

The perfect living for our week in the NY!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't find a better accommodation when I, my fiancé and my parents went to New York for one weeks stay! The host was very nice and helpful in every way possible. She welcomed us when we arrived and showed us the apartment as well as told us about Harlem, things to do and see and what to think of when staying in the US/NY/Harlem.

The apartment was great and we loved it!! It had everything we needed including a lot of information about New York, maps etc. It was clean and fresh and situated on a calm street which we really appreciated after being out in the city the whole day. There were two subways nearby and it was easy to travel from there. Harlem was a nice place to live in, giving us the opportunity to see the everyday life of New York and we really liked the mix of cultures.

We definitely recommend other visitors to book this apartment for their stay in New York! It's not only comfortable and really nice - it's also really affordable!
