Excellent! 4.7/5 -
(44 traveler reviews)


This was a very quaint little apartment, just a few things we weren't crazy about.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was quaint. It's the typical NYC apartment, small but it had almost everything we needed for our family of 4. We traveled with 2 small children and felt that we had enough space.

I was not to crazy about the fact that there was no elevator to the 5th floor, where the apartment was. I also a little concerned that there was no smoke detector. Being on the 5th floor with 2 small children I was worried mostly about that. Lastly there were several exposed pipes around the apartment that got HOT. And when I say hot I mean hot like 100 plus degrees. I was very nervous we may burn ourselves, mainly I was nervous for our 3 year old. (That's why I gave 4 stars)

Overall I had those concerns, but still enjoyed my stay. I would only stay here again if I didn't have small children traveling with me.

An apartment that enhanced our visit to New York C

  • 5 of 5

The apartment's only minor drawback, namely, the tiny bathroom, doesn't detract from its many advantages. It's early 20th century design made it a quaint, cozy place for us to return to after a day of sightseeing in New York. The unit is clean, comfortable, and equipped with all modern amenities (including towels and linens) needed for a pleasant stay. Located in a charming neighborhood close to a variety of restaurants, taverns, and shops, the apartment is also within easy walking distance to 5th Avenue, Central Park, the East River Promanade, and the 86th Street subway station. While preparing for our stay, we found Fiona (the owner) to be extremely helpful in providing information on the apartment and the surrounding area.

Nice place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this apt. Apt was very clean! It was nice for everyone to have their own bed. Had one small issue with the bathroom light and Fiona resolved it for us. She was also very helpful with parking instructions! We felt like we experienced an "authentic" neighborhood and it was great to experience that instead of a hotel. We loved Salvo's pizza right in the neighborhood.

10 days in NYC

  • 5 of 5

The Upper East Side is a great location. Easy walk to Central Park, museums and Carl S. park. Also, very easy to get to the subway line. It is a nice location to be able to get away from the crowds in Midtown. The apartment is spacious for 4 guest and has everything you would need. Fiona is always easy to communicate with and responds to any questions without hesitation. This is the 2nd time I have stayed (2015 & 2016) and will continue to book her place when available.

Loved the Place!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a 13 day stay at this apartment on the upper East side. I have been to New York about 30 times, and this is the most enjoyable place I have stayed. When booking this great place, keep in mind that the common hall way appears to have last been painted many years ago, and is very drab. Also, bear in mind that this is a 5th floor walk up, which could be tough for young families or those older or in poor health. Those factors aside, I will be back because:

1) My wife and I arrived about 30 minutes earlier than expected, and the cleaning lady was still there. She was nice as heck, and the place was absolutely spotless.

2) It is roomier than anything you will probably find at 3 times the price. I have stayed at much more expensive New York hotels, and had 1/4 the space.

3) This is an old building, so you can't expect it to be like a luxury hotel built in the 21st century. That is the charm. It feels like real New York.

4) What you see is what you get. The place looks like the pictures.

5) Fiona was great to do business with. I had questions about the internet and cable TV, and she answered me promptly. Upon leaving, my deposit was promptly returned to my paypal account.

6) Great location....a 15 minute walk to a 4,5,6 train on Lexington, and a bit farther to Central Park. Carl Schultz Park, which is really nice and on the River, is only a 10 minute walk away. Lots of restaurants, a grocery store, and anything else you would need within walking distance.

7) The beds are really comfortable. The window air conditioner kept the place cool even though it was pretty hot a couple of the days we were there. We slept great!

8) The building is really solid, and you never hear anything from neighboring units.

We will be back next year! I highly recommend this place!

Great apartment, excellent owner

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as shown in the photographs on the listing. It is an old building, so it is filled with character. The bathroom is very small as has been reported by others but the shower is good, what more do you want? The location is excellent, close to transport links and the local shopping is also good. There are plenty of places to eat within a short walk, if you don't fancy it you could easily eat in at the apartment using the provided facilities.

Fiona is an excellent host who made our stay the best it could be, really good communication and helpful when needed to be. She answers any questions very promptly and efficiently, if all owners were like Fiona you would be able to travel happy.
