The Vortex

You’ve never seen designer luxury quite like this beautiful Manhattan flat! With a funky, fresh feel, this stunning one-bedroom home combines a soothing, spa-like sense of style with state of the art technology – an oasis completely controlled by your iPad or smartphone! Located on 1700 square feet in the Old Tenement building in Hell’s Kitchen, you won’t find a better location from which to explore the city.

Tucked away on a lovely residential street mere steps from Times Square, this large apartment has a fabulous location that still feels secluded and hidden away from the busy city streets. As you enter the space, rustic stone walls combine with an array of pampering amenities to create a true urban oasis. Along with the main sitting room, this home offers a theater room that’s perfect for quiet nights at home with a foreign film.

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary appliances and utensils in case you want to stay in for a delicious homemade meal. A Nespresso cappuccino maker makes getting through the mornings easy, and the Viking gas stove will ensure all meals are cooked to perfection. When dinner is served, gather around the outdoor fire table, where you can enjoy the radiating warmth of a wood-burning fire as you dine on a delicious meal!

The true gem of this stunning home has to be the main master bedroom. Featuring a plush king-sized bed, this space is located on the open-concept garden level, where you’ll find a massive soaking tub, perfect for some much-needed relaxation at the end of a long, weary day. Other spa-like amenities include the upstairs powder room and private steam room, helping you to wash all your worries away! The second sleeping space is private and features a queen-sized sleeper sofa, and the queen-sized couch in the theater room can serve as an optional third bed.

This gorgeous apartment faces a private garden, situated between buildings and offering a respite from the busy city streets. Enjoy lounging in the summer hot tub after a long day, resting up before heading out to one of the city’s trendy, delicious restaurants!

Hell’s Kitchen is widely considered the foodies capital of New York and serves as a cultural hub for the city! After you spend your days taking in all the iconic sites of the city, such as Times Square, Central Park, and more, head out on the town for a meal at one of the countless exciting restaurants of every variety and style. You’re at the center of the city’s bustling theater district, so musical and play lovers will absolutely love this spot.

This stunning New York City apartment puts the nicest five-star hotels to shame!

Fabulous week in NYC!

The Vortex was a perfect "home away from home!" Everything was exactly as described. Wonderful location, beautiful accommodations, very responsive host ... all making for a perfect week! Of course, it's NY but, even so, Hell's Kitchen area offers a bit of a different vibe than a few blocks over on 5th Avenue. Wonderful neighborhood restaurants all around that easily compared to those in the more touristy areas. We would highly recommend a stay here! Thank you for a stellar week! Wendy & Yaron Yaniv”

Perfect secluded spot to enjoy all that NYC has to offer!

Hosts Julie and James were incredibly accommodating and kind to us. The apartment itself is a peaceful respite from the barrage of NYC sights and sounds. It’s conveniently located to everything (there are many popular attractions nearby), and the remodeled apartment has many amenities that weren’t even listed. With smart technology for ambiance lighting and music, to a steam shower and giant soaking tub. There is also an outdoor fireplace with a large patio, as well as a movie screen theater, it’s the quintessential New York Pied-a-terre. I love a ground floor apartment where you can open the windows for fresh air and pop right out onto the street to all the conveniences of the nearby restaurants and sites. We would return again and again if we could. ”
