This place is as described. Although the "ship like accommodations" may not be for everyone, I loved it and felt like moving in. The bed is firm and comfortable, up a short set of stairs in a loft that is approximately 3.5- 4 feet high (so no standing) This was no issue for me. There is plenty of closet space and storage for clothes. And the small kitchen had all the necessary items. The apartment is two sets of stairs up from street level and is located in one of my favorite areas in the city, about 1 block to Washington Square Park. Peter is wonderful and easy to communicate with. Looking forward to a future stay!
