Overview

About the property

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery cool couple who give off the aire of being young purpose seekers despite being entrenched in real parenthood.I would love to see these two on their own turf. Félicitez les admirables français

Very nice rental and a great host

  • 5 of 5

Alex is an amazing host who wasn't home during my stay but totally trusted me to open and close up the rental on my own. He left keys in a secure place for me, and we communicated by text and once by phone. His place was clean and tidy, the sheets were clean and the room was well stocked with blankets, towels, linens, a coffee maker, coffee, etc. the bathroom was also very clean. I recommend this rental as it is a good value for the money. His is one of the more affordable options in NY and also has street parking.

The property looks exactly like in the pictures. It's decently clean, but not spotless.

Great location, kind and attentive owner, wonderful price!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my young son and I this summer during our vacation to NYC! Alex made sure we had everything we needed and even went above and beyond with smoothies each morning, detailed maps and dining/entertainment suggestions. The fact that the place also included visits with his son, a contemporary of mine, made it even better. The two boys hit it off and enjoyed hours of play. I would recommend this property to friends and family, the price is very reasonable as well. The location is great, in a sweet neighborhood in Harlem, very close to a park, the bus, the subway, a grocery store and plenty of delicous dining. An all round good deal!

The apartment was clean, well-stocked, and the host was super helpful! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Alex was fantastic and so was his apartment! He was very accommodating when our car broke down on the way and got to town a bit later than expected. He had laid out everything we needed in the apartment, sheets, towels, wifi password, map of the area, etc. which was super helpful. The apartment was clean, and located in a great area. There's a beautiful park visible from the window in the guest bedroom, and Columbia's gorgeous campus is only a short walk away! Alex made our stay in NYC stress free! I would highly recommend this to someone looking to stay in the city!

Quiet New York getaway

  • 5 of 5

The space was ideal of me - the room overlooked Morningside Park, everything was clean and ready for my arrival, and the host stocked the room with plenty of towels, blankets, etc. It was close to transit, and there was plenty to do/look at when walking around the area. I would definitely choose to book here again.
