Dear Martyn

We have already told all our friends in Sydney to use your company next time they travel anywhere in the World where you have apartments!
Our stay at 2 Midtown South at 31st Manhattan for 3 nights early this month was wonderful!!! From the first impression as we booked in, the staff (at all levels) were so positive and so helpful nothing at all was a problem! The apartments were superior in size, the bathrooms were fantastic-spotless and clean and every single request from Housekeeping (even for more ice-cube trays) were actioned within minutes. It was so refreshing to stay somewhere where the staff obviously are passionate about their jobs! The location was great-walk to everywhere-Macys one block and everything else so close by! Great Deli next door that has EVERYTHING in it!!! Very safe also!
We are going back next year to New York with friends and will definitely be using apartments2book and staying in their New York apartments! Cheers &Andy, Sydney, Australia

Hi Martyn

My husband and I recently spent 6 nights at 8 Midtown East at 39th studio apartment. We arrived late at night after a long flight from Australia and were warmly welcomed by the Reception staff and were very impressed at the size of our room!! Great location also!!! Its just perfect and quiet but still only a few streets away from Empire State and all the action of Mid-town! Great Italian restaurant connected to hotel and also great Japanese only a few doors away!! Would not recommend the Frontier Diner though nearby-the only American DINER I've ever eaten in which wasn't up to scratch.
Would recommend these Apartments and we will be staying there again next year when we are back in New York-also easy access to Internet in Reception which always seemed available (we used it every day!)
Also lots of interesting boutiques nearby on 2nd Avenue-New York is still the Shoppers Paradise!!!

Cheers

Hi Martyn,

Our vacation in NYC was fabulous and went off without a hitch. Your staff was always very helpful and got back to me very quickly with any questions I had. We were expected at our accommodation, with the rate we had confirmed through your company. 15 Central Park at Broadway This property is a luxury hotel in a fantastic location...we were spoilt the entire time by the attentive staff. It was a once in a lifetime getaway for us to stay in such luxury accommodation The room was spacious, with fridge and a lounger and tons of closet space. We had an amazing view of midtown and the east side and central park, just as we had asked. We also had the 10th floor, which we had also asked for (we'd asked for a high floor). Overall I would definitely book with your company again. I was expecting something to go wrong with the reservation or the accommodation (why would a Canadian book through a UK company to go to NYC?!) but it was all totally great.

Thanks a lot!
Carin

Dear Martyn

We recently spent 8 nights at 8 Midtown East at 39th Our one-bedroom apartment was large enough for ourselves and two teenage children and it was a bonus to have a fully equipped kitchen. The staff were friendly and helpful and on arrival explained directions to grocery stores so we could stock up on breakfast items. The location of the apartments couldn't have been better. This was our first time to New York and we found it really easy to find our way around. A 5 minute walk to subway and walking distance to Times Square, Empire State building etc. We had an amazing holiday there and if we ever go to New York again I wouldn't hesitate to contact apartments2book for our accommodation needs. Many thanks Mary Wilkinson Brisbane, QLD Australia

Dear Mr. Lawson

The accommodation at the 11 Upper Westside at 75thM was excellent. The staff at the hotel were very helpful with all our enquiries. The only down side was that when we arrived at 1:00 we were told that we couldn't check in until 2:00 which we hadn't been told by you. Also when we arrived back at 2:00 the room wasn't ready and we had to wait another hour. Despite the initial set back we had an excellent holiday and thank you for the booking. Mrs. L Storey
P.S. Please tell future travellers about the wonderful supermarket opposite the hotel! It would be possible to cater for yourself in the apartment, shopping at the supermarket. Though it would be a shame to miss eating out in New York!

Dear Martyn

We had a fantastic stay at 4 Midtown East at 49th The location is superb, the staff were very helpful and always cheerful. The size of the apartment was amazing. It was great to have so much space staying with our three children on their first trip to New York. The children loved that there were three televisions! The kitchen was also a big bonus, including the breakfast items re-stocked each day. We found your staff very accommodating. Our flight details changed a couple of times, and your staff were very quick to re-book our required dates. We will definitely stay again the next time we visit New York. We are hoping to visit Toronto this year, and have already enquired from your company about apartments there. We would not hesitate to use your company again.

7 Midtown Times Square The reception staff were very helpful and pleasant. The apartment was well serviced daily. The apartment No 3 I think, was very small the double bed was against the wall which was difficult, however the apartment next door still a studio was much larger and renovated....I guess that is the luck of the draw. Your service was excellent with very prompt replies and would use you again. I have just given my brother your details for London in April.

Yours sincerely

Stayed 8 nights at 9 Midtown East at 39th. Location was perfect. Easy to get to Time Square. Not too far from Chelsea/Village either. Delis in the corner. Friendly and helpful staff. Room with 2 queen beds was large and perfectly cleaned everyday. The room was also pretty quiet. Will definitely stay there again in the future.

Dear Sir/Madam

Some feedback on your company and the accommodation we've tried.
I have now used your company to source a serviced apartment twice for stays in New York at Xmas. On both occasions your website and staff were able to match me to the type of accommodation, price and location that I required, and with the minimum of fuss. The website is a handy way to decide on location (although more info on the apartments might allow someone to choose between them better).
Last year we stayed at 9 Midtown East at 39th, an excellent location moments from Grand Central station. The apartment block was boutique, with a lovely concierge/awning/atrium, and we picked an apartment rather than studio as we were sleeping 3 guys. We got a huge lounge/dining area with 2 big sofas, a dining table etc and a separate bedroom with 2 large double beds, a decent size kitchen and bathroom. One lounge sofa was a sofa bed which was reasonable quality and the beds were excellent. Decor was a little twee and views weren't great, but the room and location were excellent value for money and we weren't in the room much. This year (Dec again) I took my girlfriend and we picked a studio at 2 Midtown South at 31st. This was a higher quality building with a cool bar/restaurant and fantastic concierge desk who can book you anything from restaurants to helicopter flights, and they went out of their way to help (on one occasion the guy couldn't help us get a table at a much in-demand restaurant and was nearly in tears at his failure!). The studio was small but well furnished, really a high-quality hotel room with a kitchen off to one side. The bathroom was small but functional and the shower was fantastic. It is a pricier place than Midtown 39th, but this is reflected in the extras (the bar, the smart decor, the choice of pillows!). It is also in a superb location, one block south of Macys and on 7th avenue meaning a 10 minute stroll north to the heart of Times Square.


January 2006

There had been some confusion about the booking - when we arrived at the accommodation they had the room reserved for four nights instead of the five we required. They had availability so we could stay for five nights.
could not fault the location of the property 2 Midtown South at 31st- perfect for the tourist. The room was clean and the bedroom was spacious. The bathroom was tiny but clean. The concierge services were helpful.


January 2006

Rate changes and additions need regular updating. When we booked there was no occupancy tax and unit tax mentioned, until we confirmed the booking. Our stay in a one bedroom apartment at 8 Murray Hill at 39th in New York was fantastic! We stayed for 11 nights over Christmas 2005 and New Year. We are four students travelling on a tight budget, but found the apartment to be more economical than anywhere else. The apartment exceeded every expectation. We enjoyed having so much space with a separate living area from the bedroom, two toilets and two TVs. Also there was a laundry facility in the basement which was very handy. It was great having a kitchen - our only suggestion is that the kitchen could be better equipped with utensils such as a spatula, peeler, baking tray, etc. But the basics were all there. The house keeping staff were fantastic. The location was perfect - right near Grand Central Station. We always felt safe. We would definitely use this booking service again also.Apartments2book.com had the best rates for this property, and we had round-the clock service during the booking process. Thank you for everything, Girls from Australia.


January 2006

My wife and I stayed in the 8 Murray Hill at 39th apartment in December 2005. Great location, only 5 minutes walk to Grand Central Station, right in midtown Manhattan giving you easy travel uptown or downtown. The staff were extremely helpful, the apartment big enough to give you a lot of living space. Good to have a kitchen for those days when you didn't want to brave the freezing temperatures too early to go for breakfast! Great hotel service with the freedom of an apartment. Thoroughly recommended.

The apartments 9 Midtown East at 39thare lovely, very spacious. There are better equipped than any other apartments I have ever stayed in. The staff are friendly and I would definitely recommend to a friend Frances Jones


December 2005

Found the website very informative and the staff extremely helpful in my dealings with them. Seven friends and I reserved 2 one bedroom apartments through this website in New York City in early November. We stayed at the .9 Midtown East at 39thOne word sums up our accommodation. Superb! The location of the apartments could not have been better. Only 15 minutes walk to Times Square and even less to 5th Avenue and all the shops. Grand Central Station was only 5 minutes away and well worth a look. Opening the blinds in the morning we were greeted with a fantastic view of The Empire State Building. Numerous diners and cafes surrounded the apartments, and the Italian restaurant Fagiolini on the corner of Lexington Avenue above the apartments is divine. Please go.
The apartments were spotless and very spacious. Bed linen and towels were changed each day. A large TV in both the bedroom and lounge allowed us to relax and watch some sport when we weren't pounding the pavement. The fully equipped kitchen also allowed us to prepare small snacks, though full meals could be cooked with ease. It even had a dishwasher! The bathroom had one of the best shower units I've ever used. The staff were extremely helpful and always greeted you with a smile and a hello. The on-site laundry was also very useful. When we return to NYC, we'll certainly be staying in 9 Midtown East at 39th

Dear Martyn Lawson,

During our recent stay in New York we were satisfied with our accommodation at 17 Upper Eastside Residence We were also happy with locating and booking through your company. Would approach "Apartments2book" in future and am recommending your company's services to others.

Hi Martyn

The apartments at 8 Murray Hill at 39th were AMAZING!!! There is no better location for New York city beginners!! We were shocked at how spacious the apartment was and we felt like we lived there as they were so homely. The staff were fantastic! From reception to housekeeping all of them made us feel like part of the family. We will be returning to New York next year with a large group and we will most certainly be staying at Murray Hill!!! Thank u so much for making our first time in New York AMAZING!!! Lydia Gunn, Nichola Marek, Kelly Gavin and Emma Davison.


November 2005

8 Murray Hill at 39thThe apartment is exactly what we expected - clean, roomy and the kitchen facilities were very useful. The price was as agreed and very reasonable - though for us the US taxes are always steep. The location was wonderfully central to Grand Central Station, the Empire State building, the UN, Central Park, shops, a supermarket, convenience stores, delis and restaurants. We always felt safe walking back to the apartment even in the early hours of the morning. The staff were attentive and efficient. We would highly recommend the accommodation and your company. The apartments2book staff responded quickly and effectively.

Dear Mr. Lawson,

It was a very positive surprise!
We have found the 11 Upper Westside at 75tha great place to stay while in NYC. The hotel seems as if has been recently renovated. The room we have received for our 5 days stay is very large, comfortable, quiet and with a lot of natural light. The hotel is very conveniently located. We liked the very kind and efficient service given by all staff members.
I would like also to mention the high service level provided by your staff at all stages of business with your office.
It has been our first experience in dealing with you. Since we were very satisfied, we have already given your address to friends, will continue to do it and before visiting NYC or other cities, we will check first with you.

Best regards
Judith and Arnon Siegmann

Hi,

We found the apartment to be perfect 4 Midtown East at 49th. It contained two large bedrooms, a bathroom, a large sitting room with dining area and a small but well equipped kitchen which was entirely adequate. The apartment was very clean and was attended to on a daily basis. Fruit, cereal, tea, coffee, muffins and milk were supplied daily. ALL the staff were friendly and helpful. The apartment is located right in the heart of Manhattan, excellent for sightseeing. Would we stay again? Absolutely. A GREAT FIND.
We have to thank 'apartments2book' for their website which helped us greatly and when planning our next holiday will definitely use your services.

Thank You

I stayed in 11 Upper Westside at 75th in August this year with my husband and 4 month old baby and was really pleased with the accommodation. It was spacious and comfortable (although the kitchenette was tiny but I suppose most people would eat out). The staff were brilliant - friendly and helpful. Our microwave broke and they replaced it with a brand new one within 5 minutes. The location was great, a few blocks from central park and the museums and we were opposite the wonderful Fairways food market - which was so convenient. Also we found the cafe / restaurant next to the hotel to be very convenient, especially as they also did room service. I will be staying again.

Dear Apartment2book.com

We found the service of apartments2book.com did just what it said on the tin! The website, hotel/apartment selection and booking process delivered what we expected from an on-line booking service. I flew to NYC in August to visit our adult daughters at medical school there. I would certainly use the service again and/or recommend it to others.
Positives: We booked one week at 20 Upper Westside Budget Rooms Being a New Yorker having emigrated to the UK ten years ago I knew NYC pretty well. The apartments were former University dormitories. Good value for money but only just. The hotel like service was fine; door monitoring by entry buzzer; lifts were small but there were two; beds seemed reasonably new and firm; daily clean towels and bed linen, made up beds everyday; sink basin, shower and loo in working order. Adequate closets. Mini fridge and microwave. The location is great for the upper west side, Broadway with all shops and restaurants is a quick two blocks away; a day gym, one block away; also, around the corner, Zabar's deli.
Iffy bits: We expected the rooms to be compact but not to be in such a state of disrepair that the paint was literally peeling off the walls. We understood there had been a fire earlier in the summer and now all the rooms are being redecorated. They hadn't made it to the 15th floor yet! Also, the booking website did advertise a computer modem in room; this was not the case and it was one of the major criteria for selecting this hotel so I was truly annoyed at having to walk 5 blocks every morning and sit there most of the working day to get to a internet access at Starbucks. Perhaps that could be looked into and the website listing changed to avoid future disappointment. Looking forward to using your service again when next I'm off to NYC.

With kind regards

Dear Martyn,

Thank you ever so much for suggesting 1 Midtown East 50th New York.....we had a wonderful stay this summer there. It was very comfortable.....and a quiet place to stay in the heart of New York. The staff there was very helpful, courteous and the room was very well kept always. We as a family do highly recommend it as a place to stay....the only thing is there was no washing machine in the kitchen ....wish there was one it would have been great and really convenient!!!!!!!!!

Many Thanks

Reservation and confirmation was handled very efficiently by your staff - the New York reception staff were also very accommodating and helpful. The accommodating was also very suitable and convenient for our needs 4 Midtown East at 49thlocation was ideal in that we were only two blocks below 5th Avenue and three blocks from Grand Central Station he daily supplies of coffee, tea, milk etc in the apartment was also most welcome. I have now stayed at three of your properties - Toronto, Sydney and New York and the facilities, location and rates have all been extremely satisfactory. I will not hesitate in choosing your service in the future or recommending to any of my friends.

Kind Regards

I wanted to let you that our accommodation 9 Midtown East at 39th were wonderful. Our NY friends were amazed when they saw the size of the apartment. It's location was great, the staff was helpful and professional, and the place was very clean and kept up. The location was perfect--and the neighbourhood was exactly as advertised. Thanks so much. While I'd stay there again and have already recommended this to many friends, I'm also looking forward to trying out your other properties. You've definitely earned my trust.

We stayed at the8 Murray Hill at 39th early May and are happy to report that the accommodation exceeded our expectations! We have a 2-year old son and shared a 1-bedroom with my cousin and her 2-year old. The apartment was so spacious, the boys actually rode a trike (we brought along to take to Central Park) around the living room on a rainy day! It is the only way to travel if you have children in tow. The kitchen was very well-equipped and featured nice, newer appliances, the beds were comfortable, and there were plenty of towels in the bath. The staff at the property were also very friendly and helpful. And the location was great too; we could easily walk to Times Square and the tourist hub, yet the building is on a quiet residential street sparing us the sounds of NYC traffic. Apartments2book.com offered the best rates I could find for this property. Thanks for a great weekend in NYC, and we'll definitely use your services again!

I loved the apartment at 8 Murray Hill at 39th.We stayed there from the 30th of March to April 3.The people at the hotel were wonderful. The suite was perfect! Our entire New York experience was wonderful. We spent 3 and a half days in New York and loved it. I would love to go back again and, if I do, I will definitely stay at Murray Hill at 39th.I will recommend this place to all my friends. We could walk to most of the tourist spots easily and for those places a bit farter away we took a bus. Thanks for your hospitality, we had a great time!!! :-)

Hi folks

Just returned from our New York City vacation this past Monday, and I wanted to write to let you know that my wife and I were TREMENDOUSLY pleased with our stay at the 7 Midtown Times Square that you arranged for us. Staff there were very friendly, the room was to our liking, and one could not possibly ask for a more convenient location within the heart of the city I'm very glad to have found your service, as I don't think I could have found such perfect accommodation on my own. I will definitely keep your service in mind as I plan a vacation to San Francisco next year. Thank you very much.

Sincerely

We were pleased with our stay at 4 Midtown East at 49th. The room and building were very clean, the staff was friendly, it was convenient to have the high speed internet connection, and the fresh fruit, English muffins, milk, and orange juice was a nice touch. I especially liked that the room had hard wood floors opposed to carpeting. I would definitely stay again and recommend the place to others

Dear Martyn

My wife and I have travelled to New York on many occasions. There is no place like New York and it is a place where you go to absorb the atmosphere and to sample the way of life. No more so than at Christmas. This was the first time that we had stayed at 2 Midtown South at 31st We travelled to New York with our one year old baby girl. The purpose of our visit was to meet with family who were living in both new York and Chicago. The moment we arrived at the reception we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who took time to say hello to our baby. She checked us in and suggested that if we were to wait for approx 30 minutes she would do her best to give us an apartment with 2 separate bathrooms. We were absolutely delighted and true to her word within 15 minutes we had such an apartment. This was particularly important given the fact that we were travelling with our baby. In fact it was this gesture that ensured primarily that our baby remained in her routine from home. This was our one real apprehension before travelling to New York. May I also say that while were waiting for that 15 minutes another member of staff brought a teddy bear and gave it to our baby. It was this initial 30 minutes which put us immediately at ease and set the tone for the whole trip. we were delighted with our apartment and the facilities it provided. My wife prepares all her own food for our baby and the apartment and kitchen area afforded her ample room to continue to do this. We had a fantastic stay in New York and this was in no small part due to the facilities available at 2 Midtown South at 31st and to the friendly and welcoming atmosphere which prevailed. So much so that when we returned home that we made an immediate enquiry about returning next year.

many thanks


January 2005

The 8 Murray Hill at 39th Apartment we stayed in was fantastic. The location was an easy walk to shops, transport, restaurants and major sites. We felt very safe in the neighbourhood and often walked back to the apartment after a show uptown, with no worries about safety. We loved the size of our apartment even though we were out most of the day and well into the night - it was wonderful just to have closet space, a couple of chests of drawers, space to put all the shopping, 2 toilets, 2 TV's, and a couple of lounges to relax on. Also, the staff was very helpful and on one occasion they happily allowed us to send an email to our kids from their office as we hadn't found an internet cafe that day! We would happily recommend this location and property to any visitors to new York, and will definitely book it on our next trip.

We could not have been happier with our accommodation and would readily recommend it to any of our friends, 2 Midtown South at 31st Our apartment provided all the freedoms and comforts one would expect of a fully equipped home, combined with the luxuries of a top hotel (such as concierge, reception, cleaning and bar facilities), and all at a great price. before going to New York we considered one night in a posh hotel for the luxury of it, supplemented by four in eh apartment. Little did we know that all five spent at the apartment would be so good.

Dear Martyn

2 Midtown South at 31st The apartment was spacious, clean and well presented, although the air conditioning was a little noisy. It was located very centrally with easy access to uptown and the village, so perfectly placed for all of the activities we wanted. The staff at the apartment were extremely friendly and helpful, and delivered service without any fuss at all. We took our two sons and they were able to move freely in the apartment as well as safely around the apartment block. Your staff were excellent through the process, and booking was very easy. Finally, I am hoping to run the New York Marathon in November and will definitely book an apartment through you.

We stayed at 4 Midtown East at 49th and thought it was great. Its a quirky old building like many in New York with hissing heating and poor double glazing which makes it noisy, but that's New York (they plan new double glazing soon anyway for the purists). The apartment was clean and simply but well furnished with loads of room - great when you have two kids with you. Some NY friends visited us there and said it was double the size of their on apartments! Its an odd feeling as you buy into self catering but its more like an hotel with towels changes daily, beds made, breakfast put in the fridge and the dishwasher loaded and turned on for you. The staff are very pleasant and helpful to limit of their brief - for more outlandish requests (like flex on checkout time) you need to talk to the manager but she is great and really helpful. Thanks also to you Angie, you were a great help sorting the cots and a pleasure to talk to.
