“Mid town Manhattan - location and low cost. I got both.”
Reviewed 18 October 2009

The Oxbridge Midtown East Apartments are six units located in the Diplomat condominiums, midtown Manhattan in New York City, N.Y., between Second and Third Avenues. I chose it for location and low cost. I got both.

The booking experience is sort of like renting a ski cabin: initial booking, a second step to place a deposit (credit card via fax), and key pick up from the friendly doorman.

I stayed in room 7A, with a “city view.” Clean sheets were waiting on top of the double bed, so I had to make my own bed. I had to scrounge around for a blanket. No shampoo. Mini-blinds meant there was a lot of light coming into the room during the night. Broadband internet worked fine. Quiet neighbors. For the price and location it was a good deal and I would return.

Good stay, with amenities of an apartment. Small, but full kitchen is great, with a grocery store and fruit stand up 2nd Ave. They have five units in the building - front- (2/F, 11/F) and rear-facing (4/F, 7/F, 10/F). Our 2/F studio was quiet. Large main room with double bed, futon, rollaway bed, four-seater dining table, drawers, cable TV, mini-stereo, cordless phone (free local calls in/out), wireless/wired internet, night tables and full-width window with a ledge. Ran out of hot water at times and a slow draining clogged tub - flagged by other reviewers (yet not fixed?). While the apartment was great overall, there were procedural annoyances. After booking online, you get a message to call management in New York to find out how to check in - very inconvenient for an online booking. After getting voicemail (no one called back), found an email online (oxbridge@aol.com), which was responded to. They want to send you a credit-card form to fax/email back to cover any damage, etc. Suspect we could have checked in regardless as the same blank form also in room. The other inconvenience is that you have to check out by 10am (they say you can leave your bags, but only until noon) and then check in is a late 4pm. No flexibility. Otherwise, the guard seems to be 24 hours and had our key waiting. Apartment stays are great, but a risk if anything goes wrong as harder to find help than in a hotel. Management contact here does not seem friendly or helpful. But would stay again.

Reviewed 24 January 2009

Just completed a 5 night stay in this midtown NYC studio apartment. It is an apartment with one queen size bed on a high floor in an owner occupied apartment building with a 24 hour doorman in the lobby. The place was very clean, kitchen complete with dishwasher (liquid soap provided for washer and also in bathroom)and plates, glasses and matching utensils for 4. Free WiFi with password provided in apartment. The place came with a stereo radio/CD player and a cordless phone allowing for free local phone calls. Unfortunately the cable TV reception was intermittent but Oxbridge Management quickly assisted in getting it repaired. One drawback was the 4PM check-in time and the early 10AM check-out time although bags can be stored till 12noon. Ideal midtown location with easy walk to subway transportation, supermarkets and many restaurants. Note that the doorman is not a concierge - he is there mostly for safety and security.

  • Liked — location and cleanliness
  • Disliked — the 10AM check-out time / bags can be held till 12noon.
