Recent Upper West Side reviews

  • Quiet apartment in great Upper West neighborhood

    "Because there are few reviews of this on VRBO (log book in apartment shows many rentals), I've included a few extra details.  Bottom line: we will stay here again. The apartment is offered by a management company.  Although this likely increases the price, the assistance offered in regards to email, telephone and the set-up and maintenance of the apartment is a good tradeoff. This apartment in the back of the second floor of a brownstone is located in a toney and quiet residential Westside neighborhood with very convenient access to transportation, shopping and restaurants. No street  noise whatsoever. The floor plan itself is small but  efficient (the pictures on the website are accurate).  A big plus in summer are the two  quiet AC units: one  in the  main room /kitchenette area and one in the  small  bedroom.  They are more than adequate. (I don't know about cold weather heating.)  The supply of  small items had hits and misses. The bedroom and living room, the latter with its small barstool dining table,  are  excellent spaces to spend the few hours you will stay in the apartment. Although the appliances in the kitchenette are good, the counter space for food preparation is very small. While toasting bread, making an omelet on the 4 burner cooktop, boiling a cup of  water or preparing a frozen dinner (yuck) in the  microwave is simple, preparing a more involved meal is not easy. The cabinets over the counter are very high: you need a step stool (supplied) to access beyond the first shelf. These last few comments on the kitchenette may not be applicable to many renters. We found it a minor inconvenience.  It's a great place to stay.  We will surely come back to stay here."

  • Better the Second Time Around

    "When I arrived at the apartment, it felt like coming home. This is the second time our friends and I have rented this apartment. We have no intention of looking elsewhere. The best of NYC in one location. It is even near the GW bridge access off the Westside Hgwy. Don't let cabbies use the tunnels, unless a new Bridgegate blockage is in progress. The kitchen is very serviceable, but lack of a dining area (if two bedrooms are in use) poses a slight detraction. Slight. The bedrooms never get dark at night. The shades are completely translucent and keep things bright all night long. That is a significant detraction. Still, location and separation of bedrooms is fantastic. It is spacious. And the library actually includes Hegel and Fichte -- amazing."

  • Spacious apartment in a great location

    "My husband and I had stayed in this apartment for a month five years ago and were delighted to find it available again for a three-month stay. Ideal location for museums (Metropolitan, Museum of Natural History (2 blocks away), the Guggenheim, etc. Lincoln Center is a 20-minute walk. The area is noted for its restaurants (e.g., Kefi's, Sarabeth's) and Zabar's famous grocery is a block and a half away. Three bedrooms plus a pull-out sofa means plenty of accommodation for kids and any relatives who want to visit you in New York. A sense of spaciousness with high ceilings and a long hallway that runs the length of the apartment. Big closets and other storage space. Easy recycling and garbage disposal. Does not face the street, so is pretty quiet for a place in such a bustling location. Modern kitchen."

  • Well located, well appointed - everything you need.

    "I really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It is very well located, with easy walking to two subway lines (an express stop on the IRT), and also the cross-town bus. The market 1/2 block away has everything you might want in the way of food - grind your own coffee, good fresh produce, cheese. The owners use this apartment themselves on occasion, so it has many features that strictly rental properties may not have -- a full kitchen with a beautiful gas stove, full refrigerator, laundry facilities. There is plenty of hanging space in the closet and a large bureau, so you can really unpack and relax. I was there during a 94-degree heat wave, and the air conditioning coped quite well. It also fulfilled my top two requirements: plenty of hot water, and spotlessly clean. Overall, I was very happy with my choice, and would certainly stay here again."
