From the exposed brick walls to the compact kitchenette, this snug apartment is perfect for those wanting a quintessential New York City getaway. It may be small, but it has everything you'll need – there's a desk to work from in the bedroom, a small dining table for sharing quick breakfasts and light lunches, and an in-suite washer and dryer (rare for NYC). We think this apartment is a cosy place to rest your legs once you've had your fill of sightseeing, and the icing on the cake is the shared roof terrace. Head up there with a few beers or a bottle of wine in the evenings and admire the views over Hell's Kitchen. When you're ready to set out, you'll have plenty to do on your doorstep. The newly opened Hudson Yards is a five-minute walk and home to an array of boutique shops and restaurants. Also close by is Madison Square Garden and Penn Station – reachable in five minutes – and sights like the High Line and Times Square are also within striking distance. Safe to say, this is an excellent spot for first-time tourists and seasoned visitors alike.
Home truths: *The kitchen is tiny – it’s more for light fare than homecooked dinners – but we didn’t mind as there are tons of eateries nearby
*You'll have to walk up four flights of stairs to the entrance of this apartment as there's no lift
*Parking is difficult in this area, so take the subway instead of driving – Penn Station is five minutes away
