You literally stay in the basement of a residential building. On the ceiling of the apartment are visible pipes that screech every time someone uses water upstairs. No heat or a/c. My wife and I stayed here in the first week of October 2016 and we are from the south where it is still quite warm in October. In NYC it starts getting cold in early October. Nights it dropped to 45 or 50 degrees. When we asked the owner if there was a heater available to use he simply replied "it's not even that cold yet". Probably would have received 3 stars instead of 2 had he supplied a heater. The stairs leading down to the apartment seem dangerous. The place is very small but did not bother us as it was only my wife and I. Thankfully we were only in there to sleep. It stinks horribly as soon as you open the door of the apartment. A couple days even inside the apartment it smelled as though a rodent had died nearby. Location was ok. Close to subways and not a terribly bad neighborhood. Next NYC trip we will choose another place to stay

The pot I found was not clean, some of them even are mildewed. Chairs in the garden are dirty too. The washin machine is too noisy while it's working.

Urban Oasis

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay in this Hamilton Heights studio. Originally, we booked for a month to get away from our apartment renovation, but we extended for 2 weeks and would have stayed longer if the apartment was available. It's a small studio, but what it lacks in space it more than makes up for in charm. For us, the garden was a the best feature - a real sanctuary in the city. But Glenn provided a number of other thoughtful touches, as well - the apartment is very well stocked with all the necessities.

The apartment is close to the 1, A, C B & D trains and there's a nice variety of restaurants, bars and coffee shops nearby on Broadway.

Frankly, the stairs down to the apartment took a little getting used to - it really hits home that you're living in a basement. But once you're inside and looking out at your private garden, that feeling quickly goes away!

Excellent stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a excellent stay as I transitioned into my own apartment after a last minute return to New York. The apartment was clean and easy to get to when I arrived. Glen was very helpful with my needs and questions. The back patio was charming and a nice getaway to relax and have coffee in the morning or a drink after work. Everything you need is already here waiting for you. I highly recommend staying here.
