Excellent find in NYC!

  • 5 of 5

my business partner and I stayed in the apartment for one night rather than stay in our usual hotel. We absolutely loved it!!! The apartment is huge, great decor, comfortable and well-equipped. The location is ideal for my business travel. So much more comfortable than staying in a hotel. Check in and out was well-organized and easy. I could easily see myself living full-time in this cute apartment--and we actually did have bagels on the balcony! Everything was perfect --it's obvious that Barbara has great attention to detail and wants her guests to have a fabulous NYC experience. We loved our stay and will try to come back every time we are in Manhattan. Thanks for sharing your gem!

Loved it! We will go back!!

  • 5 of 5

The location was super convenient. The apartment looked just like the pictures! Everything was clean and new. Very well equipped space. We would stay there again! Not your typical NYC apt. Spacious and ample supply of clean towels. Comfortable beds. All one needs to make your time in NYC pleasant and enjoyable. Host offers to help with restaurant recommendations or local sites. Check out the rooftop! All in all great experience. We will be back to this one

Would stay again! Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment held up to every expectation that was described and more! If there is a problem with the unit, Barbara will make it her priority to correct any issue immediately. It was very close to all accommodations that was necessary for the trip. The streets were clean from any "interesting characters" that may roam neighborhoods. The doormen were polite, the beds are comfortable, Barbara is wonderful, and the air conditioning worked very well. I would stay at any of Barbara's properties again in a heartbeat.

Fabulous rental!

  • 5 of 5

This truly was a home away from home with everything we needed! Barbara was quick to answer a couple of questions for us. Location was perfect. We were able to walk the city easily and if we wanted to get somewhere a bit faster, Grand Central Station was 2 blocks away. There were so many places nearby to eat as well as markets to keep us stocked in snacks and drinks for the apartment. We used the gym as well. OH....and the beds were really plush! STAY HERE!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is truly a gem, in the heart of Manhattan. Clean, comfortable, convenient, spacious and safe - who could ask for anything more? Easy check in/check out. Barbara was extremely helpful and accommodating. She took the time to meet and check in with us to be sure we had everything we needed. Don't forget to ask her for recommendations for places to eat or visit. Thank you for providing a wonderful home away from home!

Large, Beautiful Apartment in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment near Grand Central. We were very satisfied with the location, the building, the decor and the space. Beds are all comfortable, including the roll-away beds. The owner was accommodating and flexible. The apartment was well-stocked and nicely maintained. Many attractions and restaurants are within walking distance. The apartment is bigger than it looks in the pictures and really feels like a home away from home. We look forward to coming back for our next trip to NYC.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Bagels on the Balcony. It was a pleasure hosting you and meeting your family. We want our guests to have a comfortable space at the end of their day in the Big Apple. It would be an honor to host you again if your plans bring you back to NYC. Best Barbara
