About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 5 Sleeps

This is a cute, clean, and real 2 bed apt with an extra futon to sleep on in the living room.

This is a 5th floor walk up but the light at the top is really nice, and will brighten you up every day you are there.

We have cable tv in the living room and one of the bedrooms, plus we have good wifi throughout the apt.

We have an eat-in kitchen with two stools, and a nice table to read/work on.

Finally we have a renovated kitchen and bathroom for you to use with a double sink and walk in shower!

We have tried hard to make this place feel like home. We had great reviews on airbnb and now would like to sample the homeaway experience.

Great week, good apartment, some minor improvements would get a 4 star review.

  • 3 of 5

Quite a good location, a lot of stairs to the top. The entrance to the building is beautiful - however the standard of cleaning & decor of the hallway deteriorates above the 1st floor. If the hallway / staircase above the 1st floor was decorated & cleaned properly it would give a better impression of the apartment. Also we had to clean the apartment when we arrived - very dusty, we cleaned the skirting boards, floor corners & bathroom - also above the pictures & door frames were thick with dust. Overall we had a great week, the apartment had clean bedding & towels which was good & coffee pods & machine were provided. It wouldn't take a lot of time / money to raise this to a 4 star review.

  • 2 of 5

Walk up 5 floors was a struggle with our bags. Furniture worn out and very uncomfortable, only 2 worn out pans , floors not clean and place in need of dusting and a good scrub, only one wine glass, not two, otherwise nice space. A bit far from downtown and Museums to walk to.

Owner's Response: The worn out furniture is a bit strange. We have a classic wooden chair in the living room that probably needs re-upholstering - but its an antique. We have two relatively new beds with mattresses less than 6 years old. The only thing we purchased that is not expensive is the sofa bed in the living room from Ikea - which may be what Sandle is referring to. The 5th floor walk up is clearly listed on the ad so not sure why the guest is complaining about that. Yeah - it is 4 flights of stairs. Lastly in relation to pans and glasses etc we will always restock these if you are not happy. Occasionally guests break these and we don't hear about them from our cleaner to restock - but we are happy to if there is something missing you need. Distance from downtown? we are 15 mins from midtown, and 30 from downtown. I think this guest needed a midtown hotel and just couldn't afford it. if you love exploring a new neighborhood near the park...

Well placed, warm and easy.

  • 4 of 5

The property has excellent heating, good beds and has basic kitchen utensils to make a stay go well. I was glad I was aware of the stairs to the 4th floor and made sure only to do them once a day. Wifi worked well. The owner was available promptly by email to advise on anything. We like to cook for ourselves so would have appreciated some more pots and baking trays for that.

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay! We were there in the city visiting our daughter and son-in-law who recently moved to the Upper Wesr Side. This was exactly as advertised. It was very clean and had good space for NYC apartments. The apartment is in a qreat location on the upper west side and convenient to the B & C and the 1 & 2 trains. It's not far from Central Park and is not too long of a walk to Riverside Park. It was a great apartment for the value. They were easy to work with and very helpful! I highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting NYC!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our three night stay. The location was great (walking distance to Columbia Univ., Central Park, subway), we felt very safe, and the neighborhood was quiet. The apartment was clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was equipped for cooking meals if needed (though plenty of restaurants nearby) and the bathroom was spacious (with fluffy towels :)). Much more fun to live as a New Yorker among locals than to stay in a hotel. I would recommend this apartment!
