I'm trying to sort out accommodations in NYC for a week during Christmas for a Hungarian couple who may be on a very limited budget. I'm moving to London next week, so I won't have a place to offer them, and I don't have time to properly research an alternative. I'd like to offer them a range of choices from Bed & Breakfast or Hotel, to a sublet or self-service suite.
I know that if anyone can help, Chowhounds can! To justify this posting, please suggest some appropriate places for them to get a real taste of America and especially of NYC (but without breaking the bank).
