Great two bedroom in a great upper east side neighborhood! East 86th and 1st avenue!! Full kitchen, queens in both bedrooms. The larger bedroom also has a sleeper sofa. Like many NYC apartments, the apartment has a partial railroad style. There are two sleeper sofas in the apartment.

There is a large, flat-screen LCD television!

Apt us in the heart of the upper east side. 456 trains are 4 blocks away. Dozens if affordable restaurants in walking distance. Front bedroom is on 1st avenue so u will have noise 24 hours. Inner bedroom and futon in living rooms are nice and quiet and dark. Bathroom is typical for nyc apt. Very small but everything works great. Apt was ready when we arrived. Walk to museum mile then cross the park in 15 minute walk to American museum of natural history. Sergio our booking agent was always a call away for any questions. My husband my two adults sons and teenage daughter stayed for 8 days. As long as you split up shower time we had no complaints. Recommend Gotham pizza on corner and burger bistro on first floor. Apt was on 3rd floor no elevator. For the elderly disabled or families with strollers might be a trek.

Charming apartment

  • 5 of 5
This place was the classic brownstone building. The apt was beautifully re-done. Great coloring. A very easy to work with staff. The manager was very accessible. The owner happened to be there and was a charming and hospitable lady. Close to bus as well as subway. Only a ten minute walk to both the East River and Central Park. I strongly recommend both the apt and neighborhood.

What a great time we had in N.Y.C. Staying in this historic, well maintained building was the icing on the cake. What better way to live and see the city than to stay in an original 100 year old brownstone. Most of the original features have been restored beautifully with the added amenities to make it modern and comfortable, like new kitchens and front door security. located in the upper east side its close to everything, shopping, stores restaurants, park and subway. Downstairs is a full service laundry and zagats # 2 rated restaurant in all 5 boroughs. When we arrived they were just finishing painting the hallways and rooms and a full service cleaning lady kept the building beautiful. We will be back.

Smelt bad

  • 3 of 5
I want to be objective. The house did not have Washer Dryer. No dish washer either. The plumbing was too old. The water was either hot or cold. There was an awful smell (something like gas)in the apartment and in the entire building. There were two bed rooms but they are connected so dont expect privacy. The bed sheets were clean. But there is nothing in the kitchen, not even paper towels or salt sprinkler. Utenciles were at a minimum. It is on the third floor. Steep stairways!! Food, Grocery and medical stores are very closeby. Nearest Metro is 7- 10 mins walk. Please make sure you get the key code before you come. We were lucky to get hold of the manager by phone when we got to the property, what if we couldnt. I dont know if this what you will get in NYC.

Owner's Response: ,Dear VRBO
I have to object to this review! I am happy when guests point out things that could be better in the apartment. Especially if they tell us while they are here so that we can remedy it right away. We don't live there so it is VERY helpful when guests kindly let us know what is needed.

Unfortunately this review is not helpful because it is inaccurate. The ad clearly states that the apartment is a partial railroad AND we took pains to photo the unit in such as way as would show the bedrooms exactly how they are situated! There is no mention of a washer and dryer being in the apartment in the ad. (However I think they just mixed it up with another unit or building).

The guest said there was a smell of gas. If that is so WHY did they not call us? We would have had the gas company out immediately. Also the other guests and the restaurant would have likely complained if there was a strong smell of gas. I myself can't imagine staying in an apartment for more than one minute if there were a smell of gas!

Re the old plumbing: As the ad states: This is a prewar walk up. It has the charm of such and the old pipes of such. The plumbing in the unit is new but the plumbing under the ground is prewar. We've never had a complaint about the water running hot or cold. The boiler is large and certainly of sufficient size for this buildings.

Re lack of basic items: Most guests simply give us a call, text or email if they need anything. We send the cleaner down to the storeroom in the building and she brings it to their apartment. Dishes get broken, things get thrown away. That is simply par for the course. However if something is needed to replenish and the cleaner didn't notice it the guest simply has to let us know and within a very short period the items will be left in the unit.

Lastly re entry: The check in instructions are to call us an hour before you arrive or upon landing so that we can meet you or give you the new codes. We also always answer the phone when guests are arriving in case there is a problem. There are no worries of not getting into the unit when scheduled.

In closing let me say that I dislike having to write a response to a review. I just felt this one was too inaccurate to let go by without calling attention to the inaccuracies. We are not perfect. Problems arise. The building is full of the charm and character of a true New York City brick walk up and all that that entails. If a guest want

From the Owner

Step outside to endless possibilities!! Some of my favorites: the french bakery on the block, Pio Pio on 90th and 1st(i think it has the best sangria in the city!! Go early if you want a more romantic dinner so you can get the window seat!!), If you would like to try the best burgers in the city, do not have to go far, you can find them right at the property!!!. Health food store one block up, giant groceries, too many quaint wine bars to mention.. But the one on 88th and 2nd with the curtained entrance is great!!), Duane Reade across the street, easy access to the west side as the bus stops on the corner. The art farm on 91st between first and york is great for little ones!! I love asphault green for classes or swimming. Also NY sports club is on 86th and lex.(93rd and 3rd if you want to swim.) you can buy a weeks pass for $20 or so. My favorite exercise class in the city (excluding yoga) is 'soul spin' on 83rd and 3rd. It's fantastic!!! Try to get into Stacy or Laurie's class. Walk to museum mile but make sure to stop in at cafe Sabarsky on your way!! As i lived in Austria, i love this cafe!! The deserts are fantastic (think of the rich vienna chocolates). Joanne works on Thursday and if you can sit in her section you'll have a treat. She loves kids and can't resist treating them with extra special attention!! There is too much to mention.. But there is a start!!
