Owner purchased this Studio in 2008
Why Owner chose Lincoln Square
In their NY apartments extra special care was taken to 1. furnish a first class bed with high thread count linens, 2. make sure the noise of the city is at a minimum, 3. be in their neighbourhood, the Upper West Side.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
The Apartment is old in a very old building. The neighborhood is extremely busy. There were only 4 local channels available on the TV that was not easy to figure out. The Manager Miriam was very responsive to our questions and needs.
Just as a point of information the TV receives the local NY channels: 1,2,4,5,7,9,11,13,and 21 providing a variety of programming: news,sports, movies, tv dramas and comedies. The neighborhood is busy but the apartment is quiet as it faces the backyard rather than the street.
Ideal Upper West Side apartment
For our first visit to NY from the UK, this apartment was ideal. Well located and clean, with efficient communication with owner & agent made this a stress free visit. We managed to obtain late check out at short notice, for a small fee, which suited our later flight departure.
All communication with the agent was prompt and efficient; Miriam was very helpful on every occasion. The apartment is in an older building, and the communal areas are quite dated, but clean & serviceable. Check in was smooth. The apartment itself is exactly as described, clean, well-appointed and everything you would need for a short stay (hairdryer, iron, etc.). The Wi-Fi was fast and efficient. We found the air-conditioning a bit noisy, but it was necessary due to the weather conditions. The large bed was very comfortable, with clean sheets and comfy pillows.
The apartment is quiet, on a reasonably quiet side street, and being at the rear of the property you hear little street noise. We saw other residents on a handful of occasions, and there was no noise from other apartments.
The location is superb, yards from Broadway and 72nd Street station, served by the 1, 2 & 3 subway. These were fast and frequent to Times Square and Downtown areas (maybe 20 minutes to South Ferry). Central Park is less than 2 blocks away, there are numerous well priced restaurants within a 5 minute walk, especially on Amsterdam.
Given the age of the property, it is understandable that the décor is itself old (e.g. bathtub, kitchen cupboards), but all fully functional. The ease of dealing with the agent, added to the location, made up for any minor issues with the property. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend, or to revisit.
Very conveniently located
Perfect location near subway, grocery stores and Lincoln Center, which was the purpose of my trip. Comfortable bed. Cleanliness.
Very clean, great location!
We stayed 4 nights in this apartment. While it is older and could use an upgrade renovation, it’s New York and its all about location! I fear if they upgrade and renovate, we wouldn’t be able to afford it!! This apt has a great location and we enjoyed our stay. It’s clean, communication with Miriam was fast and easy. Made everything very simple! We would definitely stay here again!
We loved NYC!
Property was close to Central Park and you had easy access to a subway station which was practical.
Can't beat the location!
Literally blocks to Central Park, Lincoln Center and more!!
