Great and affordable stay

  • 4 of 5
My mom and i stayed at this property this month and found the apartment very charming and clean. All the necessary ammenities. We stayed for a week and found it convenient to access metro and taxi services. We had a problem with the keys for the outside door a couple of times, but Abe was always available to help. All in all we had a great and affordable stay in New York thanks to renting this property.

Owner's Response: To avoid issue with key just insert correct key into bottom lock and turn clockwise (as demonstrated) and then push door open. Best regards.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
Me and my friend spent 10 days in NYC and this place is one of the best places we came across.The apartment was clean, well decorated and fully equipped. You have a huge fridge, nice gas oven & stove, microwave, etc... you will find anything you need. It has a great safe location, just 4 mins walking to the subway and many 24 hrs stores around. I recommend this place for everyone, and whenever I plan to visit NYC I will def stick to that place. The owner is great guy, he waited for us to check in and gave us a tour in the apartment, and when we had questions he was always there for us!
Since I travel a lot , I really recommend this place one of the best places you could find in Manhattan with such a service and price!

Best Choice of Stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely charming and relaxing apartment. Despite the fact that I spent my time outside most of the time, its a great spot to come back to relax and recharge from all the hustle and crowds in downtown Manhattan. There was more than enough amenities and the WiFi was very helpful. All the subways and bus stops were at walking distance and you could get hands on daily necessities nearby.

Abe was very welcoming and helpful although I rarely contacted him for help (because everything was properly provided!). Check in and Check out was simple and smooth. I felt guilty that he had to wait for my late arrival since there was a huge line at JFK but he still warmly welcomed me (thanks Abe!)

You really get what you paid for by renting this apartment and I got more than I thought I would. Certainly a place to come back to again when I pop over to New York in my future adventures.

I had thoroughly searched Home Away for the nicest spot for my money in this area, and was excited to find this place - great deal, and I booked with Abe. Unfortunately, my travel plans changed a week or two before, and I no longer needed lodging in New York. I contacted Abe, and he was very understanding, professional and fair in working with me on the situation. Should I need housing in this area in the future, I will certainly consider this site first.

Harlem Retreat

  • 4 of 5
I was raised in NY but have lived in Phoenix for the last 15 years. Mid-town hotel prices have gotten outrageous and as I needed to be on the upper west side for Mother's Day the Harlem studio was ideal. It was just as described. It was near the subway and I found a great soul food restaurant "Margie's Red Rosé Diner" on W. 144th St. Both the apartment and the restaurant worth a visit.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5
We were disappointed in this property and the attitude of the owner. When we arrived we found the dishes in the dishwasher dirty. There was no dish soap for either the sink or dishwasher. We washed the dishes. Did report the problem to the owner who then said he would do the dishes which, because we had needed them, we had already done. Found some kind of sticky goo in the bottom the freezer. We did not use the gas stove but it also needed more cleaning. Minimal kitchenware, e.g. 1 plastic wine glass. No dish cloth. One dish towel. The door keys do not work well because locks/keys are badly worn. People in apt. above unit made quite a bit of noise in the middle of the night two nights in a row. Sounded as though they were moving furniture at 1:00 a.m. Sofa needs cleaning, rug very worn. No closet for hanging items, just hook over door and old wire hangers. The owner wants an excessive security deposit for such a modest unit and accepts only PayPal or credit card and the renter must pay any transaction fees. Upon discussing some of these items with him, he became very angry which is the main reason for writing this review because we do not ordinarily write negative reviews.

Now for some good: nice bathroom, fine towels, very soft but comfortable bed (although the bedding is tired), pleasant street, about 5 city blocks from B/C subway line. It is okay but definitely not luxury.

Owner's Response: As I am sure you can see from all other reviews, this review is actually not the case but I guess when someone must find something to complain about, he will even if he has to make it up. I am surprised a complaint was not made about the radioactive waste in the bathroom... This guest became agitated when asked for the security deposit, which is indicated in homeaway listing and which we remind guests of in our confirmation email. Guest loudly indicated "he did not care about what is required on our listing, that he has travelled extensively through out the whole world and never seen such a thing, that he never pays a security deposit and that we would pay for this..." even though deposit was returned in full upon departure. I suggested to guest that next time he is in Manhattan, the Plaza in midtown may be a better choice for him given his cosmopolitan aspirations. Now for those looking for a beautifully appointed suite with a fully-equiped kitchen in a land-marked, family oriented neighborhood, 15 minutes away from Times Square and that offers a terrific value (read affordable), our studio is a great option for your Manhattan getaway.
