Great location, old property
I booked this large studio apartment for a week in June 2016 for 4 people (2 adults and 2 children). It is a very large space, in a great location in NYC. We didn't have a car, so being close to the subway was a must. There were really good restaurants and museums walking distance from the studio. And Dov responded to all my e-mail questions quickly.
The building is very old and the unit could use a great deal of maintenance. The staircase from the second floor to the third floor sags. There is a very heavy pocket door for the bathroom that sticks making it very hard to open and close. We had a few ants in the bathroom (not enough to call Dov over, but enough for me to mention). And the air conditioning unit is very loud.
I would stay in this unit again because it was a great price with a great location. It is hard to find something in this price range with this location and this amount of space.
Ideal location, shabby chic, quiet and comfy
This studio is large and quiet with a comfortable seating area, a full size dining table, a bathroom with an ample closet and a well-equipped kitchen. The bed was comfortable and the wifi functioned well. While it wasn't fancy or luxurious, we found it a most relaxing place to be after a busy day in the city. We didn't do laundry while we were there, but apparently a place down the block is available and it delivers. My one suggestion is that the owner provide an informational sheet with details about laundry, garbage, the area, emergency contacts should anything go wrong, etc. That said, I would love to rent it again if it's available when we return to NYC for another visit!
My husband, 16 year old son and I all felt that the apartment was perfect for us. The couch was so comfortable that our son didn't even pull out the queen sofa bed! The bed was also very comfy. Great surprise....There is so much closet space in the bathroom. Lots of hangers and hanging space, along with shelves. Very nice surprise! Loved that the subway and Central Park were less than a block away and several museums were so close. The apartment was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Very quiet neighborhood! Shower was great and I was thrilled that we always had plenty of hot water. We never saw or spoke with Dov, but he had everything ready for us. In the hood, we enjoyed Bodrum's Turkish and Bella Luna Italian restaurants, 5 Napkin burger, AMC theater, Pete's Pizza and stocked up at Zabar's with breakfast and dinner treats. I already miss the bagels with salmon. Only issue we had was with the pocket door (original, I'm sure) to the bathroom. It's lovely, but very heavy and we couldn't get it to open/close. We ended up hanging a sheet over the door way. Worked great for us, but non family members might have an issue with that. Radiator is quite powerful, but we just opened the window to cool things down a bit. (There is a window ac, but we didn't need it) Could have used another pillow or 2 and some extra bath and kitchen towels. Those are really just suggestions. Would love to stay there again. Thank you, Dov.
Cozy Studio - Great Location
Great location, walking distance to lots of great restaurants and right next to the subway. Walking distance to the Met and Nat History Museum. 1/2 block from Central Park.
The apartment itself is nothing fancy, but perfectly suitable for a 2-4 person group. My wife and I were there for the week before Christmas and very much enjoyed our stay. A very good value compared to staying in a hotel. A friend from nearby was able to visit and crash on the pull-out couch. She said it was quite comfortable. Kitchen was nice if you wanted to cook and not eat at any of the dozens of great restaurants in the area. It's a 3rd story walk up so if you don't like stairs you're in trouble, but wasn't a problem for us.
Only complaint I have was that the Wi-Fi was pretty spotty. Maybe worked about 2-3 out of 8 days we were there. But if you're just going to Manhattan to use Wifi, then you're going for the wrong reasons.
We would definitely stay here again.
Quiet, Spacious Studio in Convenient Upper West Side Location
Just spent 10 days there with a friend- sleeping on the bed and couch. So- possibly enough room for 3, if two slept in the bed. Kitchen was good for refrigerating left-overs and warming them. Nice big table to eat at or plan the day. Very quiet street, close to subway, buses and beautiful Central Park. Dov was quick to reply to messages and requests. I would have given more stars, if not for the leaning staircase, and getting the suitcases up the 2 flights. Was glad not to be on a higher floor. We read a previous review about "mince"- which we suspected meant mice. But we were careful to not leave food out and to keep food waste in the fridge until brought outside- so we didn't experience any problems with mice while there. Both of us felt we would stay there again.
