The location and neighborhood are great. The apartment is amazingly quiet. The person upstairs has heavy feet, runs, and clanks,but he wasn't around too much. The apartment is nice, but sadly suffers from some neglect. It is interesting that the reviews from a few years ago say it is spotless and fully equipped. Now, it is no longer spotless. It is clean enough but not spotless. The bathroom walls could be washed down. There were no garbage bags or napkins. There was no carrot peeler (I donated the one I bought) but there are three bottle openers. The bathroom sink and tub drain very slowly. The freezer drips water into the refrigerator compartment. The towels were washed but stained, and the bathmat was pretty grungy. I bought my own towels. The toilet paper dispenser has no roller. There is no chest or set of drawers to put clothes in. The closet space is good and there were plenty of hangers. So, there are a lot of little things that could easily be taken care of. If they are, I would stay here again.
The location was great (i.e. Community)! Appreciated being able to live like a New Yorker! The unit was semi clean, but corners were dirty and windowsills very dusty. the three long staircases were steep and narrow, making it difficult to navigate with luggage.
pisos por escalera y no lo sabíamos, por lo demás bien.
The three best things that this upper west side apartment has going for it is location, location and location. Not much else except its lower than other NYC rentals price. It is on a relatively quiet street, close to Central Park. The upper west side of Manhattan is a fantastic area to stay. It is easy to get around the city from its location. The neighborhood itself is inviting for exploration. However it is in an old building that is marginally kept up and maintained. If you are open minded about staying in a place with lots of quirks and bare bones furnishings, you will be happy here. There is a moderately comfortable bed and couch, inconsistent hot water and wi-fi, but enough air conditioning and heat - both were needed during my one week stay in weather fickle late April. One must be in good physical shape to get on well here because it is on the fourth floor of a five story walk-up. There is no place to put a suitcase except the floor. There are closets with hangers though and rickety a table and chairs. The tilting stairway and crooked floors set the tone. That being said, the business aspect of renting this apartment went well. Dov was adequately communicative and there were no problems with the VRBO experience. If your priority is to have an upper west side home base while in NYC for a reasonable price and you do not require upscale amenities, then this apartment will do.
We like the location , because of nearness to the Central Park and downtown.
What we don' t like is the dilapidated apartment.
We stayed there for 8 nights and we had a very good time. The apartment was equipped with everything you need for your holidays vacations. Excellent location in a very nice neighborhood and the subway it's right on the corner. Quick responds of the owner by email too. Although, the bathroom has a tube right in front of the toilet and that's uncomfortable for a tall man like me, but it's manageable. Also the last 3 days the signal of the Internet went very slow so we could't use some apps of our smartphones. Anyway, overall everything was quite good and we enjoyed our staying there. I would come back.
