2 Bedroom Vacation Rental in Hamilton Heights, Uptown (NY-12452)
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom - Sleeps 6

This fully furnished two bedroom apartment is located in Washington Heights neighborhood, a historic part of Harlem in Uptown Manhattan. The apartment is on the 2nd floor (considered 1st floor by Europeans) of a 3-story brownstone walk-up landmark building dating from the early 1900s. There is a video intercom system for guest entry and the convenience of on-site laundry facilities.

This New York apartment features two working gas fireplaces, granite kitchen countertops hardwood floors, and a central air conditioning system throughout the apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave in addition to the basic appliances. There is an elevated bar area with two chairs for casual meals, and a round dining table in the kitchen with four chairs for larger groups. A deskchair from the office can be added to accommodate an extra person, so overall 7 people can be seated for meals, though not at the same table. Down the hall are the bedrooms and an office area with a local phone line. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has a double sized bed and a convertible sofa bed. Two single size ottoman chair-beds are available to provide sleeping accommodations for extra persons (one in the living room and one in the second bedroom).

Air conditioning cools the entire apartment and wireless Internet access is available throughout.

Both bedrooms have windows with southern exposure, overlooking the backyard garden, and the living room has three French windows with northern exposure, facing the street.

Washington Heights offers exceptional living in a quiet yet exciting area of Manhattan! You can relax in Jackie Robinson Park, just over two blocks west. There are many schools in the area: Boricua College (3 blocks away), the City College of New York (2 subway stops away), and Columbia University (3 to 4 stops away). A grocery store and a pharmacy are both within a block's walk and you will find delis and restaurants around the corner on Amsterdam Avenue.

The nearest subway station is just a block away, with the A/C trains. The B/D station is also nearby, about 3 blocks away. Both will connect you to Lower Manhattan and the rest of New York City.

The Appartment is comfortable for 5 people but bed (mattress and bed base) in one room have to change.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Jan 24 2020

I'm glad you found the apartment comfortable for five people. It's not always easy to accommodate a large group. But I'm sorry there was a concern about one of the beds. Without knowing the specifics of which bed or the particular problem, I'd like to say that the linen closet holds a feather mattress topper in a bin with that label for a twin sized bed. And if the problem had been mentioned to me during the stay, I could have also brought in and made available a mattress topper for a larger, full-sized bed. Still, I hope the bed didn't mar your overall experience and that you left with nice memories of a wonderful New York City visit.

Answer by: New York Customer Service
Jan 29 2020

Dear Jean-Philippe,
Thank you for reviewing your stay through our agency.
We are glad to read that your stay was positive overall. We have shared your comment with the owner regarding the bed. She will take it in consideration for future improvement.
Thank you again for staying with us.

The apartment was absolutely consistent with the description and the photos. Well maintained and furnished. The bathroom was small but functional (even for five adults and two children). The bedrooms were excellent. The landlady was nice and helpful.

The apartment is located in a quiet street for a city like New York. The landlady is likeable and attentive to our requests. Getting to the subway is easy. Cleaning should be done more thoroughly.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Dec 07 2016

I hope you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. I just wanted you to know that your apartment was well prepared in advance of your arrival and that cleaning items are provided in the laundry room if needed throughout a visitor's stay.

Best regards,

Overall, this apartment is decent but a bit borderline regarding cleanliness. The code for the Internet was given only a few days after our arrival, which is a little annoying when you arrive in an unknown city (and you actually need to look for information!!!). At the end of our stay, we have been asked to take off the bed sheets and to do a load of laundry, which is a bit inappropriate isn't it? There is no toaster in the kitchen, what a shame!

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Jun 20 2016

Sometimes our expectations can determine our experiences, in spite of what we may actually encounter. And what is familiar at home may be different somewhere else. Such is the beauty and value of travel.

At the time of your departure, you mentioned that there were no kitchen prep knives in the drawer and thought that was something that should be added. And I pointed out to you the wood knife block on the kitchen counter with five kitchen prep knives of various sizes that you had overlooked. Had you mentioned the toaster, I would have gladly pointed that out as well. It has the word "toaster" on it in 3/4 inch lettering, located on the microwave appliance but totally separate from the microwave oven itself, to the right of the oven compartment.

Your experience in a vacation rental in someone's home may differ from that in a hotel. As I recall, the internet code was provided the minute you requested it. Also, my request to guests is to please place used linen in the washer, add detergent that is provided and press the start button. It's a cost-free task that takes no more than one or two minutes. They are not required to stick around until the load finishes, so they are free to go on their merry way.

I encourage guests to tell me right away what their concerns are, so that hopefully the situation can be remedied immediately.

Best regards,

We had a great stay in this apartment: comfortable, spacious and well located to reach the metro. It was nice to return to the quiet neighborhood at the end of our days of visits. The landlady is very welcoming, friendly and available. However, there is only one true bed and the mattresses of the sofa beds are uncomfortable.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Sep 16 2015

Thank you for staying at my place Philippe. I'm glad you liked the apartment and neighborhood. The sofa beds, while convenient, can sometimes present varying concerns depending on a user's comfort level. For that reason, the linen closet (bottom section) is stocked with two feather mattress toppers for guests' use. Regards, Paula.

Review by: Nicolas V.,

Excellent rental.
Although it is located far from Manhattan, the apartment is a 2-minute walk from 155 Street subway station.
Very secure location. Much less stressful than in the train (RER) in northern Paris...
Negative point: the sofabed of the living room is uncomfortable. The mattress is too thin. You sleep on the springs.
The landlady is very pleasant and accommodating (arrival time, handing over the keys, etc).

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Sep 16 2015

Thank you, Nicolas, for your recent NYC visit. I appreciate that you thought the apartment was a secure, excellent rental. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay here. I'm sorry that the pull-out mattress felt too 'springy', which sometimes is a drawback to furniture that does double-duty service. Thankfully, there are two feather mattress toppers stored in the lower section of the apartment's linen closet for guests to use for moments like this.

Accommodation Rental: 12 days

I spent 12 days at the apartment with my family of 5 and it was a good and comfortable experience for us all. The location was great and I did like the feel of the neighbourhood. My only complaint would be the pull out beds not being very comfortable but that's to be expected with those types of beds anyway and it would have been nice to have a second bathroom with 4 kids around. That said we managed just fine as any household should. The owner was great and I took to her personality from the onset. She was very cordial and pleasant to be around and I have nothing but good to say about her. I would definitely stay in this apartment again and given its location (not being in the hustle and bustle of the city) I think it's ideal for families looking to get away for a few days.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner

Thank you for your very kind words. I'm so glad you and your family had a very enjoyable experience here. It was so nice having you stay. And thanks for taking wonderful care of the apartment.

The owner was very helpful and very pleasant. The fridge needs to be changed. It kept dripping water because the door kept opening up and could only be closed a certain way which my kids couldn't quite manage. The rental is very close to a train stop which was a plus for my family. Altogether a nice rental though I was careful going out very late at night.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Oct 14 2014

Thanks so much for your feedback, Nnaemeka! I'm sorry you had issues with the fridge, it has since been fixed. The gasket along the refrigerator door frame didn't allow the door to shut tightly, resulting in condensation, and so I had a repair service replace the gasket. Now the door closes securely. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!

Nice and spacious apartment. The hostess is nice. It is quiet. Not many place to eat in the neighborhood, a good fish and chips to go 7 blocks away. The street is nice. For subway the line c is located at 1 minute walking. For kids some playgrounds around. The only thing is that the Internet network is poor.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Jun 25 2014

It's always nice to hear feedback from guests about their experiences in New York City. It was wonderful having you and your family stay here for your visit. The apartment is located in one of Manhattan's residential areas and I'm glad you enjoyed the apartment and your stay. I'm sorry you had trouble with the internet; the apartment has high speed internet service and I think it is sometimes affected by weather conditions.

As regards the neighborhood, it is not ideal for someone who wants to be close to all New York sites.

On the other hand, the subway station is right next door.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner

Dear Stephane,

I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I take pride in keeping my tenants satisfied and I appreciate your review very much. Although we are located a bit further away from all major New York City sites, the subway is very convenient.

Again, I appreciate your review and hope to see you again.

Vacation rental a bit off centered but very close to subway (150m), no problem at all with the accommodation, good basic facilities, we'll just mention the dining table size: for 5 it was a bit tight and there were only 4 chairs (we had to use an armchair) and yet the accommodation is advertised for up to 6 people.

Very kind and accommodating hostess - she let us leave our luggage in on our last day as we were only leaving late at night whilst we were supposed to check out in the morning.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Jul 22 2013

Thank you for the warm review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Please note that the apartment comfortably sleeps 6 people. It has a queen size bed in the master bedroom, a full size pull-out sofa bed in the second bedroom, plus 2 twin size pullout hassock beds, one in the 2nd bedroom, the other in the living room.

For dining arrangements, guests may also add an armless parsons desk chair from the apartment's office to supplement the 4 chairs around the dining table. In addition, the living room has an open floor plan with the kitchen, with a kitchen island and 2 stools situated not far from the dining table for any additional diners.

This affords seating for 7 dinners, no small feat for a New York City apartment. Hopefully, the contract's listing of the apartment's furnishings will allow visitors to gauge their vacation lifestyle in advance.

Review by: Rico M.,
Apr 04 2013
From: United States,
Accommodation Rental: 5 days

Owner was great... prompt with communications and very helpful. The apartment was plenty big for 6 people, and we were all comfortable. The neighborhood was fine. We had a drunkard smash a beer bottle on the street outside our window one night, but no other notable events.

The cleanliness was acceptable. The bathroom could have used a new shower curtain.

Overall the unit was fairly clean... not spotless, but acceptable.

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
May 08 2013

Thank you Rico for those nice comments. I am glad that you found the apartment spacious. When several people shower frequently, there's a real need for the shower curtain to dry out thoroughly in a full, open position. The shower curtain may not have adequate time to dry out if it's left in a folded position at the end of the shower rod.

Because I'm not in the apartment, I may not know what has occurred, so I'm grateful for any and all feedback from guests, even after they've departed. If a problem is brought to my attention during the guests' stay, I can usually remedy the situation immediately.

Needless to say, I have replaced the shower curtain with a new one.

Review by: Roselyne A.,
Feb 10 2013
From: France,
Accommodation Rental: 7 days

We were very disappointed by the value for the money. When we arrived, we had to do the cleaning, which is not normal. Also, given the price the owner asks, you expect a certain level of comfort and cleanliness but - nothing.

Besides, the furniture and the utensils clearly show that the owner doesn't take care of her accommodation. In conclusion: great disappointment!!!

Answer by: Accommodation Owner
Feb 20 2013

I'm sorry that Roselyne was disappointed, but it may be the result of a misunderstanding. Here's an account of what happened as I recall. The four guests arrived by car, driving down from Montreal on the New Year's Eve weekend holiday period. As they were arriving by car, their arrival time may not necessarily have been as precise as they had planned.

As I recall, I was vacuuming when they arrived. Roselyne's male companion graciously volunteered to complete the cleaning!. Of course, I told him no, it was not necessary for him to do any cleaning, that I would finish it, but he insisted and took the vacuum hose from me to do so. Roselyne and her other friends were engaged in bringing up their luggage from the car and foyer to the apartment.

I feel she may have been unaware of her friend's very generous gesture and may have inadvertently felt it was required of her as guest.

Of course, I'm sorry that she was disappointed, as I am always glad to offer the comforts and amenities of my home to guests and take great pride in making sure they are comfortable.

PAULA, the owner, is very kind. We had a warm welcome. The accommodation is very cosy with all the modern conveniences.

It is a stone's throw from the subway, so we could have a rest in the evening after running around New York! the only downside is that there is no restaurant nearby where you can have a good meal... only fast-food restaurants.

We will contact New York Habitat again and recommend your website. We're delighted.

Answer by: New York Customer Service
Oct 05 2011

Along with extra linens in the closet, the owner also keeps a feather bed which can be placed on top of the futon or sofa bed to add comfort. The owner can also offer air mattress beds if required for a different comfort. There was a minor leak in the bow of a front window and the owner has since had this issue repaired.

Good accommodation, it looks more comfortable than it is... worn bedding (except in the main bedroom) can't sleep in the extra bed (it's better to put the mattress on the floor) bathroom was very dirty (no cleaning done by the previous guests)

The owner gives you a meeting time... and you wait for her for 1 hr... and yet we're not very demanding and were on holiday... but still...

Answer by: New York Customer Service
Sep 28 2011

Further to this review, the owner contacted us to confirm she will review all the linens and explain that there is a feather mattress topper in the apartment that guests can put on the futon for extra thickness, or the owner can provide a bed frame and a queen size air mattress upon request.

The owner apologized for any inconvenience and added that she would have liked to be warned so she could step in and resolve the issues immediately.

Tha appartment is confortable. However it should be cleaner. We had problems with the linen, which was dirty. We also found it could have been better cleaned before our arrival - things were done rather in a hurry. This said the owner was kind and did everything she could to overcome these shortcomings when we complained.

The apartment is well furnished, near a metro station, quiet and comfortable.
