90 dollar/night Large studio room in 2 bed/1 bath by Central Park/Columbia U


Property Details

Updated: Oct 21, 2016

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.Brand new queen size platform bed with a new air bed for a third guest/2 children.Although the room is non-smoking,I have access to the hall 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

Wonderful host, wonderful place, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here at Alex's lovely apartment! He was a great host who was keen to give us his insight into the surrounding areas which was a great help. The apartment was clean and tidy, and Alex provided all the necessary equipment one might need for a holiday! The area was great too, with a fantastic community feel to it. Thank you very much for letting us stay, it couldn't have been better! Hope to keep in touch!

Best place, Best price, Clean, Very good Hospitality and warm Welcome.

  • 5 of 5

If you need a fairly quiet place to stay for the night, then you'd be hard pressed to find a better place for this price. It kinda felt like coming back to your parent's house and sleeping in your old room. Even though I arrived early, Alex helped me to park my car which was really really helpful to me. Getting parking spot in the heart of the city is nightmare. But i didn't face that problem. Check-in time was 4 pm but we entered the room at 11:30 am, just imagine how generous he is. He was really kind and Seemed like a really nice person. I'll definitely be staying here again.

Thank you Alex for everything. I appreciate your hospitality.

Comfortable, reasonably quiet spot in interesting neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week and had a great time. Location is good, room was big enough for us, wasn't too noisy at night, and the host, Alex , was very helpful with suggestions for things to do or places to eat. Many restaurants nearby. Subway was very convenient. Possible negatives are dog, or sharing living room and kitchen with host, but we saw those as positives, since dog is very mellow and Alex was so helpful. Stairs to fifth floor could be a problem if you're physically limited. Overall, a wonderful experience!

From the Owner

The area here is one of the last laid back residential feeling areas in upper Manhattan which had proximity to all the things I cherish(parks,museums,Columbia U).I wanted to be part of a neighborhood that has flavor and is growing with out being sterilized.Could'nt be happier in Manhattan

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.
