57 Varieties is actually a combination of two separate flats, which are mirror images of each other. This means there are two separate entrances, but it's possible to move between the apartments on the terraces. The area is relatively calm (relatively – we're still talking about Manhattan), and that sense of peace also comes through in the way that the place has been decorated. We were particular fans of the houseplants, as well as the hammock on the terrace.
Home truthsThe apartment's on the fifth floor, and there's no lift
There are also stairs inside, which are quite steep
Guests 5, 6, 7 and 8 can sleep on the futon sofas found in each living room
Unfortunately, the host doesn't provide anything in the way of ingredients, not even tea and coffee
