We loved staying at Norva's. The appartement was quite big and we had everything we needed. The neighborhood is great, not too busy, but only 2 minutes from subway so in that way close to everything! And the cat Daf really is very sweet!

We loved staying at Norva's. When we arrived we initially thought the neighbourhood was a bit unsafe but we had zero issues – in the end we loved the neighbourhood and it has a real sense of community. And it's right beside Central Park! Although it's far from downtown, it's a 2-minute walk to the subway which connects you to the entire city. Check-in went very smoothly and Norva was very responsive and ensured everything was okay during our stay. The apartment itself was fantastic. Very clean, cosy and all the amenities you need. Norva provided us with tonnes of information about the city, transport, and local restaurants/stores/takeaways, etc. And Norva's cat Daf was an incredible companion during our stay – very friendly and sat with us watching TV :) We can definitely recommend Norva's as a great place to explore NYC from. You get to stay in a beautiful apartment away from the hustle of downtown but within easy reach via subway. You'll love it.

Absolutely spectacular neighborhood and a charming, at-home vibe in the apartment. Downstairs neighbor was super sweet and chatty and gave us loads of recommendations. Outside space is a HUGE luxury in Manhattan as well!

Norva's apartment is located in a historic-type neighborhood across the street from a STEM school. You only have to walk a few blocks to the subway, bus and (BEST YET) Central Park. Her apartment is extremely comfortable, very clean and well-appointed. The apartment ambiance is VERY relaxing and soothing after a day sightseeing. Daphne the cat is an excellent nap-buddy and ALWAYS game to play!

Our stay was very comfortable, it felt like a home! Everything we needed was provided, and more. The apartment was clean and organized. It was a quite neighborhood even during the holidays and felt safe. Anything you need is within walking distance and we discovered a great restaurant with southern cooking. It's only a quick ride to all the sites in Manhattan. The cat is very sweet and I wanted to take her home. This is a great way to save money and feel like you actually live in NY!
