I would absolutely recommend this apartment. It has all the amenities needed. The galley kitchen is great and fully stocked. The bathroom is amazing for a rental. All tiled and good storage. The mattress is comfortable and the layout is ideal for workspace as well, as I needed to partially work from the apartment on a daily basis on my computer. There is also a deep closet with sufficient storage space for a short term rental. I have stayed in other apartments on a short term basis and this one is far superior. It is a great deal with utilities and cable included in consideration of the area - near multiple subways, bars & restaurants and a 10 min walk to the north side of central park. Sophie was a pleasure as a landlord and I would gladly serve as a reference for future renters.

Great place! It was a 25 min walk from Columbia and was such a great and cozy place to live. There was not much noise and everyone was friendly. It was very clean when I got there and the owner was able to help me with anything that was needed.

In my opinion, the location of this flat is its best feature, very nice area, in a neighbourhood with soul and history. There are enough shops nearby, plus two big supermarkets, nice coffee shops too, and variety of (good) restaurants.
The flat is spacious enough, nicely decorated, with everything that might be needed, including small dining table, well equipped kitchen with dishwasher included, desk (nice), comfortable bed, and small sofa (sofa bed), very convenient.
Big plus is having laundry facilities in the building, for a fee (similar to the Laundromat).
For short stays I would definitely recommend it (I stayed four weeks). Not sure how it would be for longer stays as natural light and fresh air might be missed (though in winter that worked perfectly well).
The owner is really flexible and helpful. She agreed for my daughter to stay for a couple of weeks without any problem. At the end there was an issue with the towels (not sure what happened, she had to replace so took part of the deposit) but it was all handled very correctly.

The only bummer was that the place wasn't very clean when I got it. I spent half Saturday doing a thorough cleanup of bathroom, kitchen, cabinets, hoovering and dusting everything.
I'm still not sure that the bedding is washed after every customer (when I moved in it didnt look or feel clean) and I am quite certain when I gave it back it was not washed. (I removed it all in the morning and returned later that day to pick up my suitcase, and the same bedding was on the bed, it was wrinkled and didn't smell clean). I am sure the owner is not at fault, she has a person who cleans but I doubt this person is doing the job properly, she might need more supervision. A thorough sweeping to the basement stairs every so often would be good.

Dear Lula

I am glad you enjoyed staying at my place, and that you liked its features and location. It?s a great homey spacious place and the neighborhood is very quiet and trendy. I had no issue with you bringing your daughter and friends to stay over. You were also able to have a late check-out at 8:30 pm at no additional cost.

As you know I live in the same house and I am very surprised to learn that you had issues with cleanliness. You could have brought them up to me in a timely manner. My cleaning lady is very thorough (she actually complained about the state of the bathroom after you left ?). Of course, the bed sheets and towels are always washed and changed for each guest! May be, ironing could be improved. On the other hand, my sets of towels were ruined with some washing products you used: I had to replace the sets but you were not charged for that.

Stay well and come back if you wish

It is a lovely apartment and I felt very happy being there. Lighting could be improved. I personally missed having a radio and a more light weight comfortable chair for computer work.

Dear Ann
I am glad you enjoyed the studio and it was a pleasure having you. I am sorry to learn so late that you felt you missed computer lighting. In fact, there are a lot of light fixtures in the studio (3 at the ceiling, 2 sconces and 3 free-standing lights). Because you moved the table to accommodate your overnight guests, you were away from the sconces. Had I known this, I would have lent you an extension cord so that one of the bedside lights or the torch lamp could be placed by the table. As to the chair, instead of my Asian antique chair, you could have used one of the light-weight comfortable folding chairs, for your convenience. Anyway, I am happy you said you wanted to come back. You are most welcome!

I found this a great place to stay while in New York. Morning walks around central park and the vibrancy of Harlem and just a short train ride from the theatre district. And the landlady was great too so helpful. I have no hesitation in going back

The apartment is comfortable, well equipped and tastefully decorated, even if the access to the kitchen is not very convenient. The street where is it located is quiet and clean, inhabited by educated people. The owner was discreet, friendly and very helpful.

Dear Diego

I am glad you enjoyed your stay in my space. Regarding the kitchen facilities, I offer a small fridge, microwave, coffee-maker, water boiler and toaster, and a dining table in the studio itself for breakfast and meals. Right now the kitchen is located on a different floor that is easily accessible through a staircase located next to the studio entrance. The kitchen is private, clean, spacious and fully equipped. On top of that, it is next to the laundry room, which makes it easy to cook and do your laundry at the same time; this also avoids smelling cooking in the space where you sleep. I kindly remind you that this was clearly stated in the description and photos of the studio. I am planning to redesign the space to include a kitchen within the studio in the near future.

Overall really good experience in the studio. Very well equipped with everything one could need, even for a longer stay. Has a convenient location close to different services, Central Park and to a subway station with express trains to Downtown.

The landlord is really helpful and willing to solve any problem.

Very pleasant, well connected neighborhood. It could do with a little renovation of electric finishes.

Answer by: Apartment Owner
Dec 02 2013

I am glad to note that you and your family had a pleasant stay in my apartment. I would confirm that my place has very good comfort, a wide range of modern amenities and is nicely/homely decorated.

Your observation on the electrical installation is surprising and unfounded. All the electric fixtures are quite modern, safe and well maintained. You might be referring to one decorative bathroom light next to the bathtub that needed replacement and was promptly replaced the following day (the main bathroom lighting was just fine).

Thank you for expressing strong satisfaction with your stay in my space and spontaneously offering to recommend it to your friends back home!
