IDEAL FOR THE ULTIMATE NEW YORK VACATION!

The Upper West Side serves as a great home base for visitors looking for an authentic New York City experience. Primarily a residential neighborhood, it provides an escape from the chaos of Midtown and other heavily tourist areas. The area is famous for lovely tree-lined streets and brownstone buildings. It is a great neighborhood for shopping, especially at gourmet stores, like Zabar's and Fairway and is a train hop away from the shops at Columbus Circle.

This particular stretch of Amsterdam Avenue has an amazing diversification of affordable (i.e. non-touristy) but excellent restaurants, with foods ranging from Cuban to Vietnamese to sushi to steakhouses.

The neighborhood is completely safe to walk at any time during day and night.

Very nice apartment for two couples

  • 4 of 5

We met up with another couple for a one-week stay and really enjoyed this upper west side apartment. Check in was super smooth and we liked the place right away. We spent a lot of time out and about, but also cooked several meals here and had some relaxed evening time together as well. It was warm and cozy with two very adequate bedrooms. The bathroom was great, pretty and clean and everything functioned well. Kitchen has pretty much everything we needed and is best with one primary person cooking or you can take turns a bit, large fridge, great gas stove/oven. Living room is comfy for three or four to talk or read. Internet wi fi worked well, cell phone reception a little spotty but ok, TV cable box was not working but Ari and her team tried really hard to get everything to work (TV was not our top priority but in this election season would have checked in on a couple of cable shows that we normally take a look at), and provided us with some flexibility at check out.

It is a great neighborhood with easy walks to Central Park, Riverside Park, subway stations, plenty of neighborhood restaurants and coffee, and a short walk to Whole Foods and local groceries if you want to have some groceries on hand and/or do some cooking.

We would return, and would recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Cable was fixed immediately after guests left. It was Timewarner ( cable company) problem, but guests did not want them in the apartment. As we could not fix ourselves, we waited until they left. Cables working great.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Prompt responses during reservation process. Efficient check in/out. Great location. Seemed spacious for nyc apt. Easy to get taxi/walk to subway/close central park. Clean. Plenty of linens and kitchen equipment. Friendly people. I was wary but was pleasently surprised and happy with the whole process. One of the bedrooms was a bit loud at times due to street noise but wasnt a problem for us. Will rent from these people again if ever in nyc again! Thank you for an extremely pleasant first time experience. Highly recommend to anyone.

Location, location, location! Great stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two kids (8, 5), and mom just stayed here for four nights. Overall we were quite pleased and it was a great deal for the cost.

A few of the positives:

- Well furnished, with all of the basics for a stay. Newer furniture, dishes, kitchen items, etc. I would agree with another review that I wouldn't exactly call it newly renovated per se, but it is certainly newly furnished, painted, etc.

- Clean. The apartment was clean, no bad odors, linens were fresh, bathroom was good.

- Location! Probably the top feature, as noted in the listing. Great access to the subway and the 1-2-3 trains. And another bonus - the 2 express stops at the 96th street station, so it's a great stop for catching both local and express trains. Central park is an easy 2 block walk away. It's also far enough up on the East side that the street traffic and sidewalk traffic isn't too crazy.

- Food options. As some other reviews have noted, there is a good Italian/pizza place on the block (Acqua). We also had good Thai food. There are cheaper options as well, and we didn't really explore outside of a block or two directly around the place. Whole Foods is only a few blocks away as well, which we shopped for breakfast items (plus beer).

- Building/neighborhood felt safe for family and kids.

- Wi-Fi was easy and worked great.

Some other considerations (things to be aware of that some people might consider to be cons)

- Walk up. This is clearly noted in reviews and the listing, but you do have to navigate a few floors of stairs depending on which floor you end up on.

- Noise. We didn't find it too bad, but it is an apartment building, and while pretty quiet, you may sometimes hear upstairs neighbors, etc. I would still rate it on the quieter end, but if you are super sensitive to noise just something to be aware of.

So overall we were happy with the accuracy of the listing, and the experience - feels like living in a slice of New York!

Average property, good location

  • 3 of 5

First, the reservation experience - the property that was requested was in the Upper East Side (Property ID 3961666), but it was substituted by this one at the same price. Ok, that was fine, but I specifically requested that the apartment be on the first or second floor (at most one flight of stairs) due to the fact that we had senior citizens in our party. The original one I booked clearly said "one flight up". I was assured that this one would also be on the second floor. The owner confirmed via txt msg. But when I arrived, I was given apartment 3A - which was clearly on the third floor. When I complained, I was told that apartment 3A is on the second floor. Go figure. It is the worst feeling when an apartment turns out to be different than promised.

Beyond this issue, the apartment itself is not "newly renovated" as advertised. It was clean, but clearly dated. The floors are worn out. The hallway smells of chinese food all the time, and garbage hangs out the back door - again stinking up the hallway. The bunk bed was rickety, so we did not use the bed on top. The sofa bed in the living room was OK, but the apartment is too cramped for 6 people. The AC units are LOUD. The wifi internet worked great. The 96 Street subway was very close, and so was a 24 hr grocery store just north of 97th on Broadway. There is no street parking close by, but I found a very convenient valet lot within walking distance, thanks to the SpotHero app on my phone. The apartment is conveniently located and we mostly used Lyft and Uber to get around because of the heat in NYC during our stay. Overall a good stay, I just wish the owners were honest about which floor the apartment is on.

Owner's Response: ***This apartment is at the second floor and not the third floor, we told them the correct information. Apartments 1 is ground floor, apartments 2 is First floor and apartments 3 is 2nd floor. You can't go by the numbers as they are different at different building and cities. We always say the correct floor as we do aware that it his hard for some to climb to many stirs. ***We never substitute without showing pictures and all information. The guests could say no and decline. We just offer other options for the guests benefits. ***We do not offer any parking, we only give an apartment. No one will offer parking in Manhattan. If you bring a car you need to pay for parking, if not its not easy and not present to look for one. ***Location is amazing, 5 min from central park and less to a subway. Many restaurants and shops all around and open almost all night. Closer to anywhere in NYC. Very safe area to walk at any time. ***The apartment is very large for NYC standards and absolutely perfect for 6 and more. We show exactly how it look on line, if you think small, you should try maybe 3 hotel rooms and still will not get to this size and price. If you want a very large place and think 2 bedrooms (3 rooms) are to small I would suggest to rent out of NYC.

Great Prices and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment and we were a family of five and it worked out perfectly. We had no issues with an easy check in and check out process. Apartment was clean and we had plenty of linens for everyone for our 5 night stay. The location was my favorite thing of all because we were so close to many quick restaurants for the kids, easy walk to subway and easy to hail cabs right in front of the building. Only pros (which weren't that bad) were no elevator and it is 3 floors up so carrying luggage and kids was rough and therest was no laundry in the apartment or building but that is probably standard and again was not that big of an issue. Overall it worked!
