Brownstone Beauty - Steps from Central Park & museum
average rating of 4.75 based on 44 reviews


  • 5 of 5

I had an idea that I chose a good location but not until we woke up the next morning, was it clear just how good it was! The host, Michel, was not visible until we needed help with internet connection, for example, and then he promptly solved the problem. He turned out to be most pleasant and polite and helpful. That made a huge difference. He took the trouble to come and say "good bye" before we were about to leave.

The flat was just so comfortable and quiet and pleasant, down to the satin sheets and the very full equipment. It felt simply like a home. I would go back there any time!

Wonderful apartment in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and surprisingly spacious. The 12 ft ceilings make a huge difference. Our hosts, Michel and Renata, were very helpful and accessible. The bedroom has a wonderful bed, with a large closet with built ins. We had plenty of room for the 2 of us, and could have handled another couple easily. The bathroom has been updated and actually has a small jacuzzi. Updating is going on throughout the building, but was not an inconvenience. Fabulous -- truly fabulous -- location! Many restaurants and museums within walking distance. And of course, Central Park is right across the street. We loved staying here, and hope to return. Would recommend to anyone -- lots of young families with small children, college kids, and older adults live in the neighborhood, and the apt would work for any of these.

Lovely place & fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a couple weeks here and it was just perfect. Right around the corner from Central Park.. Very spacious. Super clean. Generous balcony. Closet space. Beautiful kitchen. High ceilings. It was such a charm and the managers were very hospitable. We will definitely be back soon! I am from the area and couldn't believe how we scored with this place and at such a good price. 5 star

Owner was nice . Location nice Apartment was not clean

  • 1 of 5

Owner offerred to send someone to clean but didn't even see how dirty it was himself and denies that it was dirty. I offered to send him the pictures I took of how unclean and he wouldn't accept them and claims it was cleaned before we got there. Not true!

Owner's Response: We take all constructive criticism very seriously and tell our guests we're available 24/7 for anything.. Unfortunately, this guest had unrealistic expectation, as per her friends. I extended them an early check-in and even waited for them at 7:30AM when they arrived after a long flight. I proceeded to carry their luggage to the apt. On the spot, Abbie informed me that she is not staying in the apt and will be moving out because it "feels" dirty. Her friends rolled their eyes behind her back and shrugged their shoulders. I was fine with this and was ready to reimburse them. Instead, Abbie had a change of heart and stayed the full length of her rental. After they left the apt, she demanded that I reimburse her for the cleaning fee or else she will write a bad review. Please see below my email to her: "The cleaning fee is for thorough cleaning before your arrival and if you don't like anything, the cleaning girl will be happy to redo. Even before you even entered the apt you, claimed that it "feels dirty". When I asked you to show me where it is dirty, you couldn't find ANYTHING. You wipe your hand on the AC and it was clean. On the spot you told me that you are not staying in the apt, and informed me that you will be leaving the same day. I offered to take your luggage downstairs and also told you the names of several hotels in the area. I waited for you to make up your mind , and told you I was OK either way. I came back to the apt and offered for the cleaning girl to come back and re-clean it under your supervision. You declined my offer. I personally mopped the bathroom floor & tub with Clorox while you watched me even though everything was already spotless. You then complained why there is dust inside the vacuum cleaner. I explained to you that we don't expect our guest to use the vacuum, and the cleaning person empties it when it gets full. In order to please you, I emptied the vacuum. You told me that you made up your mind and that you will be leaving on the same day or the next day. My wife spoke to you the following day to see if you are leaving and you told her " Don't worry about it, my friends calmed me down and they told me that I'm too picky." I'm sorry that my apt didn't meet your expectations, and I tried my best to accommodate you."
