Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment itself is nice. Good location across from Central Park. Spacious. Easy to access transportation, whether by subway, bus, taxi. The area itself is a little lacking in good restaurants but if you go about 10 blocks toward Midtown you'll have everything you want. Plus it's easy to get to the Times Square or other areas where anything you can imagine is located. But Sylvia makes it a great stay. First, she has incredible local knowledge. I'm not accustomed to trains but she made it very easy and could tell me exactly which ones to take. She is a fantastic host. She offered me tea and cakes in the morning, mixed nuts and even picked up my favorite kind of wine. Truly a delightful person! And her pets a pretty adorable. I can definitely recommend this property.

Easy access

  • 5 of 5

Great location to make as your home base while experiencing the city. All transportation is there. We basically just slept there but nothing about the shared arrangement got in our way. Host is there as needed. Pets are adorable, sweet and well behaved.

Bring earplugs if going in window opened seasons. Can't have it all without the sounds of the city.

Wonderful host in a great location in Manhattan.

  • 4 of 5

Sylvia was a wonderful host and made our stay in Manhattan easy and incredibly comfortable. The apartment is very conveniently located to the subway, central park and taxi's out the front door continuously. Great views of Central Park and the apartment itself is relatively quiet (considering how busy New York is). Was fantastic to have Sylvia help us out with the subway and show us some of the highlights of Harlem. The unit itself is spacious, beautifully decorated and very, very comfortable. We enjoyed sharing with Sylvia and her charming pets and would definitely stay here again if we were to come back to New York.

Perfect Shared Apartment - Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I recently enjoyed Sylvia ' s apartment for 4 nights in NYC. It was our first VRBO shared living experience and proved to be a wonderful time. Sylvia was welcoming, kind, full of great advise and also very respectful of our space and privacy. The location of the apartment is outstanding; Central Park is directly across the street and there is easy access to the Metro Red lines 1,2, and 3 from the Central Park North station and Green Metro lines 4, 5 and 6 from the 110th Street station. We could not have asked for anything more to enjoy our time in NYC! It was wonderful to arrive at Sylvia's apartment as strangers, and leave as friends. A true testament to Sylvia's warm and relaxed nature!

Studding Upper East Side luxury accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a beautifully kept and immaculate place to stay. Every possible electrical appliance you could require is on hand, with a view across the street of central park. When we were there you could see the christmas tree lit up across the pond - very festive! With the 2 and 3 express subway lines you can get into central manhattan in less than fifteen minutes, and a few streets back you have the Lex line (6) to take you anywhere on the East Side. A few streets up are the Apollo and other jazz and RnB musical venues in Harlem to tickle your musical tastes. A week here didn't seem enough - we will be back!
