Great location & excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect - a 1 minute walk to Central Park, 3 mins to the subway, 5 minutes to a good supermarket and restaurants, 20-30 minutes to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim, 30-40 min walk to Union Square and the Broadway theatres and the same again, but in the opposite direction, to the Gospel churches in Harlem. The apartment is in a street of brownstones; it's pretty and the street parking is free. The apartment itself has what we wanted for our family of four -a good TV, a good air conditioner, a proper dining table, a good stove and fridge & the sofa bed was big and comfy. There is an issue with the shower draining, but Dov was quick to fix it. We looked for a long time; I doubt you will find a better deal.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

The location is great 1/2 block from Central Park. Its an old place but the bed was comfortable and the kitchen was big enough for our needs making coffee in the morning. We spent most our time traveling the city so this place was very convenient but it could use some touch up.

Charming! But filthy and broken furniture

  • 1 of 5

This apartment is in a great residential part of the city close to Central Park and major buses and subways. However, the pillows were filthy, the furniture was wobbly, the kitchen had only one light bulb, most of the dishes were chipped or cracked, and there was only one roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. My wife kept complaining about her smelly hair, not realizing at first that it was the pillow. Enough said. From the same money, go to a neighborhood hotel.

Budget apartment in great location

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was certainly in a wonderful location. The proximity to subway , Central Park and restaurants and shops a few blocks away, was phenominal. The 3 star rating was because of the things mentioned in other reviews. The apartment was not very clean. I swept and washed floors and vacuumed when we arrived. There were some mouse droppings by the radiator in the bathroom and ants in the bathroom. To be fair, this is an old brownstone and the bathroom window could give these "critters" easy access. We did bring our own towels and I am glad we did because there were only 3 towels there. The bed was fine for us, we slept great, but sheets were very thin. Having said this, if the place were just cleaned up more and new linens and towels were provided, maybe some IKEA type furniture for sofa and table, this place could easily be 4 star. It really has charm and "good bones" .

Location, location, location- stayed 11/27-12/4 2016

  • 4 of 5

The good:

LOCATION- train station literally at the end of the block. Central Park entrance only 2 blocks in either direction. Great restaurants and stores close by.

Decent internet connection and plenty of TV channels

Comfortable sofa

Storage galore in a huge bathroom. (Pocket door slides smoothe now)

Plenty of hot water

Kitchen is sufficiently supplied with dishes, pans, appliances, etc. (could use a few extra mugs/glasses and silverware)

Only two flights of stairs. Note: Although the place is pet friendly, I wouldn't suggest bringing a medium sized or large dog with mobility issues. The stairs are steep and there are a lot of them. Others wrote about the second flight being slanted. It is, but I didn't feel unsafe. It's fine.

Dov was responsive to issues that arose

The bad:

Bare bones. Bring supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, dish soap, sponge, etc.

Downstairs tenants smoked cigarettes non-stop. Smoke rises and we were so affected, we had to have the windows open at all times even though it was quite cold. (The boiler had to be fixed at one point, but again, Dov was on top of that)

The water needs to be run for several minutes before it's clear. (Old building)

The bed is hard as a rock. This is a con in my opinion, but may be good for some.

Not the cleanest place I've ever stayed, but I saw no evidence of mice as someone else mentioned. Also, I always bring my own linens and towels when traveling and I suggest you do too.

Overview:

If not for the cigarette smoke, which is in no way is under Dov's control, I would stay again. This place has so much potential. As a decorator, I wanted to cry. Could be really beautiful! Again, location, location, location!

Great Location and Large Space

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 7 days in December and found the apartment to be a great place to base our NYC visit. As others have said, its a 5 star location - elegant old brownstone homes, safe, quiet, peaceful, close to subway, bus and in good proximity to terrific grocery stores. This particular building is the least attractive of all the others on the block. The room itself is substantial, allowing us to spread out and enjoy having a real table and sofa to relax on. The bathroom is also unusually large. The kitchenette is tiny but adequate for reheating take out or light meals. Everything worked for us. Hot water was plentiful. We didn't use the wifi. There were no instructions for it - you should ask Dov about it if you need it. The furnishings and decor are not what I'd call 5 star, but this is a budget accommodation so base your expectations accordingly. The building must have been quite elegant years and years ago from the looks of the wall and ceiling decoration but it is now serving its purpose as an affordable rental in a fantastic location for those of us not accustomed to NYC prices! The infamous bathroom door that others have mentioned slides effortlessly now and the sloping stairs were no big deal. Maybe they too had been reinforced or fixed somehow as they certainly felt secure, just a bit at an angle. The bed was comfortable. Yes, the linens and towels are mismatched and most are thin and an additional blanket in winter would be nice - however with the radiator heat you are cozy (so much so that we had the windows open all the time to moderate the heat). It was clean enough for us - it is a very old property so is not perfect. We would agree with others though that it would have been helpful to have an information sheet on things like what to do with the garbage, who to call if have problems, wifi password, where the subway/bus stops, groceries and restaurants are close by. If you are not fussy people but appreciate a good value this is a great place to stay. We hope to be able to return.
