About The Owner

Your hosts will be Cristina and Michael. Cristina is originally from Portugal and Michael from Austria. Both love to travel and do not like to stay in hotels. Through this passion they have aquired apartments in Vienna - Austria, Sesimbra - Portugal and Buenos Aires. They have turned this passion into a business and want to provide their fellow travellers with what they would expect in a vacation rental: A clean, affordable and comfortable home!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Manhattan

In their NY apartments extra special care was taken to

1. furnish a first class bed with high thread count linens,

2. make sure the noise of the city is at a minimum,

3. be in their neighbourhood, the Upper West Side.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The studio -- and the building -- are quiet, clean, and super-convenient to everything. Subway stop half a block away, and a terrific neighborhood for browsing, shopping, eating, and walking. Miriam is wonderful -- accessible, helpful, and local to handle any questions or issues. Small things really made this place extra enjoyable: the hot water actually gets hot and warms up quickly. The elevator is quick and available. There's a vestibule that you enter off the street, so you're inside -- not standing on the sidewalk or in the weather -- as you're getting out your key and opening the lock to the front door. The little fridge keeps things cold. There are plenty of hangers in the closet. The bathroom is pretty spacious (for NYC) and the toilet paper and paper towels are not the thin, cheap type. It's easy to find where to put trash/garbage. (None of these are things you can take for granted in a VRBO apartment or NYC hotel!) Note that although there are plenty of places to get coffee within half a block or less, if you're someone who needs to make coffee before you leave the apt in the morning, be sure you know how to work a French press --- it's not hard, just different from a drip machine. I loved my stay here -- I'd especially recommend it to someone traveling alone.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Cozy studio! Great location, close to everything! Professional response from the owner and no issues with payment, deposit refund, etc. Almost perfect stay if during the first night we wouldn’t have the laud banging noise from the heating pipes. Definitely would come back!

Idealer Ausgangspunkt für NY City

  • 5 of 5

Echt NY feeling in dieser hübschen Wohnung an einer tollen Adresse in Manhattan. Alles hat wunderbar geklappt und ist gut organisiert.

Man kann auch auf eine Erholungspause zwischen sight-seeing in die Wohnung kommen und der Hektik fur kurze Zeit entfliehen.

Bestens - hoffentlich können wir wiederkommen.

The location was great. Very clean. Close to Central Park. Great restaurants within walking distance. Miriam was very helpful and friendly. No street noise. No neighbor noise. A bit on the small side ...other than that, great place...many thanks.

Tidy and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. It was lovely coming back from a busy New York day to this tidy flat. Great location to walk to Lincoln Center and museums. Exceptionally quiet (a very pleasant surprise). Good value for money.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a "live in" experience and rent this apartment was perfect ! I first choose it because of location (Upper West Side is the best), then when we got there we were really surprised on how confortable and quiet the apartment is. Miriam was really regardful about all our questions before we go. I highly recommend this rental and will be back as soon as possible.

Terrible first impression

  • 1 of 5

We planned our trip from Overseas, far in advance to have a better chance to choose and have a great time!

Arrived as soon as we could on the date we had planned, we were so ready to have our first experience renting a nice place, with “super comfortable bed “ in the “Studio very well located” as advertised.

First off the location is great but …

When we arrived we got in the front door as planned then opened the door to the elevator and it was broken. That meant that we had to carry our luggage up 4 flights of narrow stairs. As we were ascending I saw one of the neighbors on the 2nd level and asked about the elevator, he laughed and told me they were down more than they are up. Now after a 17 hours flight this is not good news.

We finally made it to the 3rd floor (4 flights of stairs) and as we walked towards the apartment door we smell gas. Not a little bit but a strong odor. We entered the apartment and realized it is coming from this apartment. We called the landlord and she informed us that she doesn't know why but will be there around 6:30 pm (it’s a little after 3pm when we walked in). We left the window open to help ventilate the apartment. We couldn’t stay in the room so we left and started walking around and this is causing a little bit of a problem because we really don´t know what to do and decide to find another hotel room to stay in because obviously a gas leak isn’t just an inconvenience – it is quite dangerous.

The landlord arrived at around 6:30 and discovered that there was a problem with the pilot light being out and she has no idea why.

The email I received two days later from her said:

“I am very sorry your first impression of my apartment was not perfect. The thing about living in New York (rather than being a tourist in a hotel) is that sometimes things go a little wrong and one just has to roll with it. It's an old building and sometimes the elevator goes out. It was fixed on Monday morning. The pilot light being out on the stovetop is a bit mysterious - that has never happened before, but when I relit it, the gas completely dissipated. Also, tomorrow morning I am having the superintendent of the building change the setting so there is no pilot light anymore”

So I am coming on vacation and if things break and they have no idea why and could possibly put us in DANGER I am supposed to roll with it? I´m sorry but not knowing the reason the pilot light went out while sleeping in the same room as the gas stove (studio apartme
