Recent Upper West Side reviews

  • Great location and comfortable for extended stay

    "The studio is in a well kept elevator building with 24 hour doorman service. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. There is a view of Riverside Park, the Hudson River and, in the distance, the GW bridge. It is about a 2 block walk to the #1,2 and 3 subways which allows you to get pretty much wherever you want easily. There are numerous restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk and many others within a 15 minute walk or a short subway ride. The studio is nicely decorated and should you have any additional needs or questions the owner is very responsive. This is our second winter stay at this apartment and if our budget allows it it will be our choice for next year as well."

  • Super cozy, dream location

    "We were nervous about picking a random VRBO in NYC, but this apartment was more than we ever could have hoped for! Most of all, the location and price were incredible. You are located in the best of Manhattan--a stone's throw from Central Park and great museums. We were able to walk everywhere-the Met, Broadway to see shows, Central Park, and the Neue. There are also tons of great restaurants, coffee shops, and markets for all your meals. The apartment itself was fantastic also. We were there at Thanksgiving, and the apartment was wonderfully warm and cozy, with comfortable furniture, a nice comfy sitting area, and everything you need to make coffee and tea. Thanks so much for everything, and we'll definitely look to see if this place is available next time we plan a trip to NYC!"

  • Comfortable and convenient lodging in a safe and great neighborhood.

    "Perfect for our needs, but may not be so for everyone. We will definitely and happily return. Pros: The mattress is comfortable. The room is a nice size for two people, with ample dresser space, a large closet with more than enough hangers, and high ceilings. The apartment is walking distance from Central Park, Riverside Park, the 70th Street Pier, Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, Trader Joe's, Fairway Market, and Zabar's. The wifi. TV, coffee maker, and fridge all work. The two large windows let in a lot of natural light. The building was quiet during the week that we stayed. Cons: It's a 30-step walk-up, which didn't bother us, but could be a problem for some. The pillows were ridiculously thin, and to us, were useless. We provided our own. I suggested to the manager that they provide two feather pillows and two hypoallergenic pillows of good quality, and he said he would pass on my suggestion to the owner - so if you are at all fussy about pillows, inquire to see if they have improved the pillows since our visit. There are no outlets close to the bed, so if you like to use your electronics in bed while you charge them, you'll need to bring two six or eight foot extension cords, one for each side of the bed. We stayed during the winter, when the outside temperature was in the 20's and 30's. The heat for the apartment is provided by an old steam radiator which you must manually turn on and off. When it is on, the room gets too hot; when it's off, the room gets too cold, unless you regulate the temperature by cracking the window a little and letting the cold air temper the heat from the radiator. Even with the fluctuating outside temperatures, we were able to estimate how much we needed to open the window to achieve a comfortable indoor environment, but some people might not want to fuss this way to regulate the room temperature. The double hung windows open only from the top, so to open or close the windows, you have to stand on a chair. This was no problem for us, but could be a hassle for some people. Some tips: Trader Joe's and Fairway Market are usually crowded and sometimes miserable places to shop. There is a small neighborhood market, called Jubilee, on Freedom Place between 68th and 69th Streets - that market is almost never too crowded. Also, there's a CVS on the corner of 70th Street and West End Avenue, which carries a lot of staples like milk, juice, soda, cereal, snacks, and other essentials for apartment living."

  • Great for the price and location

    "This place was a decision for my family and I, it is located in the center of the Upper Westside. Just a few blocks to anywhere and a subway ride everywhere. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to NYC. Only cons I can think of is its on the forth floor so you must take 3 flights of stairs and the place could use a little TLC from the maintenance crew (although I am a maintenance man myself so I could be a little critical because it is my expertise) but other than that it is still great place that's a bargain in the area"
