Value for money studio- great location on a quiet street. Subway a short walk at end of street. We had no issues during our 2 week stay. Dov was easy to contact on our arrival , and was available via phone during our stay but we did not need to do so. I highly recommend this studio!
Dov's apartment is small but has everything we needed for a great week in New York. The location is handy to Central Park and some of the world's best museums & is close to subway & bus. Kitchen & bathroom are small but pretty well equipped.
Location is pretty great being less than a block to Central Park and having the subway entrance/exit literally right around the corner. Nice neighborhood, felt safe walking the streets at night. The AC was a must have for our July stay and was a life saver. Internet and Cable TV worked great without any issues. There are also some great restaurants close by (highly recommend Jacob's Pickles).
The apt is on/just below street level and the only 2 windows in the unit look out onto the trash location and sidewalk so there is no view and you hear everything. Luckily with the AC on it drowns out most noise and it's not a busy street so minimal traffic. Some blackout shades or curtains instead of the miniblinds would be a great addition for those that like to sleep in.
The main door to the building is literally on the other side of the wall from the bed and the automatic door closer on both entry doors don't work so the door slams shut making you very aware when anyone comes and goes from the building. Fixing the front door to the building would go a long way to making this unit more livable.
Both sinks had great water pressure but the shower was a joke, a nice removable wand made it functional enough though. The toilet is literally 2 inches from the wall so you have to sit at an angle on it especially if your a bigger guy/gal like myself, usable just a little uncomfortable.
The apt could also be better stocked. There was a small ironing board but no iron. There were 4 towels and no bath mats so for a place that has a min 7 night stay you almost need to bring your own supplies, same goes for TP, Paper towels, and soap. (There is a dishwasher but no soap for it so we just hand washed everything and used the DW for drying.)
No laundry facility and although the host said there was a laundromat around the corner we couldn't find one unless we walked a few blocks away.
All in all it was a great value and a great location away from the craziness of downtown while still being just a quick 20 min train ride from the action.
Check in was very simple. Property is not plush but very accommodating.......listing description and pictures are very accurate. Close to Central Park and subway stop on upper west side.
This is a great location! The Subway is just at the end of the block so you can get anywhere easily. Doc was nice and helped with any questions we had. The place is great for two. Quiet neighborhood. Only one bad thing about our visit there and that was the water pressure. The water was hot as hell but the hot water pressure wasn't great. But with all the great qualities about the owner and the location it was worth dealing with for the week. I would definitely recommend and we liked it so much we would stay here again and my mother in law is considering renting this place as well.
This was a very comfortable place for our one week stay. The location could not be better. Within walking distance so many attractions and beauty! We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy studio. The place could have been better supplied with things such as paper towels, toilet paper, and extra towels. We purchased a bath mat for the bathtub, as there was none there when we arrived. It could also have used a bathmat for stepping out of the tub. Other than those few inconveniences, we really enjoyed this rental.
