Despite the pricing of my rental this is not just a 'room to lay your head at night'.Excellent location,full amenities,very clean is what you get.$90/night for a single and $15 each additional guest guarantees a spacious efficiency in a new 2 bedroom corner apartment right on the park.Room has refrigerator,microwave,coffeemaker. There are also utensils/glasses/cups/plates in the room for your convenience. You have use of the main kitchen at all times and share the bathroom with just your solo host.There is a dishwasher for any cleanup and the whole apt is air conditioned with WIFI.Full closet and 3 arced windows facing south and west for amazing exposure to Morningside Park/Cathedral of St.John the Divine.5 minutes walk to Columbia University.Brand new queen size platform bed with a new air bed for a third guest/2 children.Although the room is non-smoking,I have access to the hall landing for smoker's convenience.Washer/Dryer on premesis.10 minute walk from Central Park and the Harlem Meer.This is one of the most desirable areas in upper Manhattan with our own new 'Restaurant Row'of Harlem/Morningside.The subway(b/c) is 2 blocks away and there is a fantastic supermarket(Best Yet) about 5 minutes walk.This is the apex of residential living with all the trappings of nightlife and convenience right around the corner.If you are culturally intrigued,you only have to walk 3 blocks to the best Sunday Gospel Churches and the African Market is not much farther.If your aspirations are for midtown/downtown,the train gets you where you need to go in 20 minutes.Please inquire as I do offer discounts for week or more stays.I am also pet freindly and your host dog Lucky is the star of my reviews.This is as close as you can come to having your own studio for a hostel price and you will want for nothing

Why Alex Meyer chose Harlem
The area here is one of the last laid back residential feeling areas in upper Manhattan which had proximity to all the things I cherish(parks,museums,Columbia U).I wanted to be part of a neighborhood that has flavor and is growing with out being sterilized.Could'nt be happier in Manhattan
What makes this Apartment unique
My apartment has many arced windows,roof access and a view to the Americas largest Cathedral right from the studio Bay window.The Park is directly across the street and Central Park a stone's throw.I enjoy that it is a new building with the old style charm from the outside without all the slapped together feeling you get in most affordable coops in the city.

Wow! We enjoyed every minute of this place. Affordable accommodations with Alex as you concierge!
My two daughters and I stayed here. Alex, is an amazing host with great suggestions on affordable places to go in the city. Perfect location to major subway lines. Great places to see in the neighborhood too. Highly recommended for 2. 3 works but tight. We made it work and had a blast! Thanks Alex!!!!
Clean, comfortable, felt right at home.
Alex is a great host, with several recommendations to make your visit enjoyable without breaking the bank. He was thoughtful about making my stay go smoothly, and very responsive by text to coordinate everything for my arrival. Room is homey & perfect for an affordable option to visit the city. Lucky, the dog, is friendly as can be but very much keeps to himself. The only concern for some might be climbing the stairs to the 5th floor. Would absolutely book again & recommend to friends.
This was my first time booking anything other than a hotel room, so I was a little skittery. Alex's understanding of that and his regular/quick communication immediately put me at ease. This room is every bit as beautiful as it looks in the photograph--and more. The view from our windows of Morningside Park is breathtaking. The room was immaculate, Alex offered us all kinds of options to make sure the temperature was exactly what we wanted, the bed was more comfortable than my own, and Alex detailed everything available to us in the apartment and the neighborhood. There was even free street parking in the neighborhood, with which Alex assisted us. Alex's dog is a sweetie who never sought our attention, although I sought his. I awwwwwed when he reached his paw against me. Much of the time Alex was not home, but when he was, he made himself available but was in no way intrusive. If anything, I sought him out to talk about his life and the community. Affable, smart, a very warm and open person, he felt like a fast friend. All around this was a perfect experience. We're so glad we chose Alex and VRBO.
An incredible neighborhood with everything you would need near by. Alex(owner) was such a blessing! Can't wait to stay here again. What a great overall stay and experience!
