We had a very good stay here. The main room is very large and has a good sofa. The kitchen is well stocked and there was even some coffee! The location is fantastic. We could hop on the subway at 88th (86th street station) on both B and C lines. This place especially benefits from being so near Central Park. We had a lot of good walks and crossed over to the museums. Towels, sheets, hairdryer -- all good. The only negative, and it wasn't for us, is that it is a 5th floor walk up. By the end of a long day, it seems like a mountain! But, as my sweet partner said, it allowed us to eat more strudel. About the heat -- New York apartments cannot individually control the heat and for us it felt much too hot. Air conditioning in fall/winter somehow seems wrong, yet we used it! Wonderful place.
We booked Dov's apartment based on location and price, almost a year in advance. And it was totally worth it. This small apartment is in New Yorks Upper West Side and is less than 2 blocks from anything and everything. The subway, restaurants, deli's, Starbucks, literally anything you need.
The apartment is a traditional walk-up (NO ELEVATOR) 4 flights of stairs; it's on the 5th (top) floor of the building. Which is fine if your in fairly good shape. Our only problem was we would leave at 8am and not come back until 9-11p, exhausted from touristing and going up those stairs was the last thing we wanted to do after walking around the city all day. But we survived. The apartment and the neighborhood are very safe and quiet. We never worried about walking from the subway to the apartment late at night with a 10 year old.
Second, I was a little disappointed in the apartment overall. When you think of the Upper West Side area, you think it's going to be really nice. Maybe old, but nice. It was ok. When we pulled up to the building I thought, this doesn't look very nice. It's the most non-description building on the block. Kind of ugly and run-down looking really. Also, the apartment itself could use some small updates that would make it 5 stars. All the linens (of which there are very few, towels, sheets, etc.) are very old, thread bare and stained. The sofa bed is horrible to sleep on. I'd bring or get an air mattress. The sheets provided for the sofa bed barely pass as sheets they are so thin. Also, the air conditioner in the bedroom made a horrible thumping sound every 5-10 mins which would wake us up a lot. It kept the room cool so we didn't call Dov, but it was very annoying. The place could use a fresh coat of paint also.
While I do have these few complaints, overall, the location, size and price still make it worth overlooking these details. If I were Dov, I would get all new linens and a new mattress for the sofa bed, then it would be a solid 5 stars.
The apartment is spotless, bright, and well equipped. It has easy access to buses and subways, and there are some excellent restaurants nearby. A great spot to experience the special character of the Upper West Side. Dov was accessible and helpful.
Everything was great!!!! Dov let us check in before the arrival time!!! The apartment was much better than the pictures shown. Great stay!!!!
We went to NYC on vacations and stayed in the apartment for 10 days. We enjoyed very much staying there. Charming, cozy, luminous, just what you see in the pictures. We felt at home. Great location, in a quiet residential street in the upper west side, but just half a block away from Colombus Av and two from Amsterdam Av, where you can find shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Half a block away from subway (lines B and C) and from the bus stops (line 7, which takes you literally everywhere!). One only problem: 5th floor, no elevator. Getting up and down with the luggage was a nightmare!
We live kn the east village of New York and needed a place to stay while we printed our home. We found this home perfect for our needs. Charming, chic, cosy and light filled. Even the walk up reminded me of my apartment in Paris. It's a true Pied a Terre in New York City. We didn't want to leave!
