Despite the pricing of my rental this is not just a 'room to lay your head at night'.Excellent location,full amenities,very clean is what you get.$90/night for a single and $15 each additional guest guarantees a spacious efficiency in a new 2 bedroom corner apartment right on the park.Room has refrigerator,microwave,coffeemaker. There are also utensils/glasses/cups/plates in the room for your convenience. You have use of the main kitchen at all times and share the bathroom.There is a dishwasher for any cleanup and the whole apt is air conditioned with WIFI.Full closet and 3 arced windows facing south and west for amazing exposure to Morningside Park/Cathedral of St.John the Divine.5 minutes walk to Columbia University.Full sized futon bed that can fold up into a couch during the day for even more area with a new air bed for a third guest/2 children.Although the room is non-smoking,I have access to the roof landing for smoker's convenience.Washer/Dryer on premesis.10 minute walk from Central Park and the Harlem Meer.This is one of the most desirable areas in upper Manhattan with our own new 'Restaurant Row'of Harlem/Morningside.The subway(b/c) is 2 blocks away and there is a fantastic supermarket(Best Yet) about 5 minutes walk.This is the apex of residential living with all the trappings of nightlife and convenience right around the corner.If you are culturally intrigued,you only have to walk 3 blocks to the best Sunday Gospel Churches and the African Market is not much farther.If your aspirations are for midtown/downtown,the train gets you where you need to go in 20 minutes.Please inquire as I do offer discounts for week or more stays.This is as close as you can come to having your own studio for a hostel price and you will want for nothing

4.9 based on 24 traveler reviews
The streets are very secures, we walked at 3 AM without any danger.
The room is clean with Air Conditioning and we felt like real guests. We had everything available.
The owner is adorable and very helpful. We had the chance to meet someone very kind who gave us such important advices about the city.
To sum up, you will find in this studio only benefits.
The location, amenities and price are one of the best deals you can find in NY.
Enjoyed everything. Hurry to return there !
Good accommodation for a few days
Everything was easy to reach and the environment was fine (ATM, supermarket, restaurants)!
Unfortunately we have not met Alex and his dog - he was at the time in Bali. But he had arranged everything and we were warmly welcomed by a friend!
If you are planning a trip to New York and looking for a good accommodation: found!

From the Owner
“My apartment has many arced windows,roof access and a view to the Americas largest Cathedral right from the studio Bay window.The Park is directly across the street and Central Park a stone's throw.I enjoy that it is a new building with the old style charm from the outside without all the slapped together feeling you get in most affordable coops in the city.”
