Upper Manhattan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

private bedroom for rent

Awesome, clean and well decorated 1 bedroom apartment available in West Harlem. I am renting my private bedroom (queen bed, extra mattress if needed, tv, cabinets, clothing rack, clean sheets, clean towels are all provided and in the bedroom). Perfect for friends, mother-daughters, couples or lone travelers that need inexpensive accommodations while enjoying NY.

Guest access: kitchen, bathroom, and dinning area. I work most days and you feel feel like you are own your own. I sleep in my converted bedroom/ living room. I am respectful and helpful.

Building has elevator. Apartment has a full kitchen and full bathroom and is super clean. a few short blocks from Central Park, 3 blocks from Morningside Park and tons of great restaurants in addition to famous Baptist churches. A supermarket is right across from the apartment and is open until midnight, subway and buses 2 min away, 15 min to Times Square and a very short train ride to major tourist.

West Harlem is the "it" neighborhood in NYC. It has history as well as beautiful surroundings and great restaurants. The vibe is young (We have Columbia and other college campuses close). We have beautiful and famed Baptist churches where you can go and hear/see amazing singers.

Very nice stay!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely and perfect location to be near our daughter who lives close-by. Celina was very easy to correspond with and anticipated travelers needs with morning coffee, extra blankets, shampoo etc.. The bed was very comfortable, and we enjoyed relaxing in the comfortable living area. The surrounding neighborhood has numerous restaurants and markets. An elevator in the building is a big plus as we were with my mother who is older. Wonderful visit!

The Perfect Host in an Outstanding Location............

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time in New York. Celina's place is very clean, well decorated with artifacts from around the world, spacious and in the absolute perfect location.

This is not my not the old Harlem that I once knew, there's truly a renaissance occurring in Harlem and it's phenomenal to see: there's incredible diversity, great restaurants within walking distance of Celina's place and easy access to transportation to get to other attractions in New York.

Celina was gracious enough to provide us with great recommendations for places to dine and attractions we may want to see based upon our preferences.

Without a doubt we would stay here again!!

Very good and perfect position

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was wonderful!! The house was lovely and clean neatly furnished and equipped. Celina was very kind and quickly answered our e mails whenever we contacted her. The house was in a perfect position not to centered or far away from main attractions, also the subway was super easy to get to.

I would definitely go back!

Thanks Celina for everything!

Very comfortable and convenient apartment!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very conveniently located to the subway, street parking, and bridges (if traveling by car). It has all of the amenities we needed, it was safe and quiet, and there were great food options nearby. 3 of us shared the apartment and used the air mattress provided - all were comfortable. Overall, it was a great experience and I would stay there again!

Nice apartment close to subway

  • 4 of 5

I very much enjoyed staying in Celina’s apartment! It is very nicely decorated with a designer’s eye to whimsy and functionality. The apartment is safe with key card access in a nice neighborhood with several restaurants just a few feet away. We started each day with a hearty breakfast in the dinner two doors down. If we weren’t so busy in the city, we would have used the upstairs terrace and laundry room. The subway is just steps away and if you like walking, it’s not too far from Central Park. We were confused about how the shower works, but Celina says she will give directions to future renters. Celina took extra time to research certain site seeing locations we were interested in, and overall was very helpful. While she has a plethora of body care products available, you might want to bring the types that appeal to you. I thought Celina was very generous to leave us snacks and coffee! She was most helpful and I will definitely book with Celina in the future.

lovely and spacious apartment 10 mins from time sq

  • 5 of 5

i really enjoyed my stay at this lovely apartment which is equipped and decorated like a real home away from home :-) celina provided everything needed and much more. very clean, very modern, well-stocked kitchen and bathroom, comfy bed, access to the roof top terrace in a well maintained house, which even has an elevator (which many older buildings in ny havn't).

there are shops and restaurants right next to the house and across the street, the subway station is literally 10 steps away and you can be at time square in 10 minutes. always felt save in the neighborhood, even when coming back at night.

it's the perfect starting point to explore nyc. walking distance to central park, some nice harlem churches and a lot of different restaurants plus the metro station a couple of steps away which brings you to downtown in no time.

will definitely stay there again on my next trip, really loved this apartment :-)

great location, elegantly furnished rooms, very nice owner - truly deserves a five star rating!
