Loved the central location of the studio! It is right opposite Port Authority Bus Terminal, few min walk to a number of subway stations, and very central - close to Times Square + Broadway + very easy access to a number of tourist attractions. I wouldn't walk by myself around the neighbourhood at night though.
We appreciated the private entrance and self-contained unit - just like a studio apartment. Bijan organised for self-check in and check out which was very easy. Room is quite small but we didn't spend much time in the room anyway. It has the basics (fridge, microwave, kettle, plates + cutlery, iron/ironing board, hair dryer etc). AC worked very well which was much appreciated during summer. Decor was quite nice.
Only issue we had was that shampoo and showering gel were not provided (which I would regard as Essentials), and we were only provided with half a roll of toilet paper for our 2 weeks stay which we told Bijan about the night we arrived and requested for more to be delivered the following day but we did not receive extra rolls until 2 days later. There is a Duane Reade (mini supermarket) few min walk from the studio though so we just got those things from there without hassle.
Would definitely recommend Bijan's studio to anyone visiting NYC wanting a private studio and to stay in a central, very convenient location.
