Come and enjoy a bright sunny room in a 3 bedroom classic prewar building on Riverside Drive in upper Manhattan. The room has a great view of the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge.
This room is ideal for students or traveling adults looking for a comfortable temporary and affordable accommodation.
The room is best suited for 1 person and has a semi private entrance with its own 1/2 bathroom. It's a large apartment by New York standards with 2 entrances. One entrance leads almost directly into the bedroom. This is great for the guest as your comings and goings don't bother anyone at all. The 1/2 bath has its own sink and toilet allowing for your additional privacy.
I will provide bedding, linens and towels as needed.
There is a laundry facility available for use 7 days per week in the basement of the building from 8am to 9pm.
This is a great area and well connected to the rest of the city via the 1, A, C, B and F subway lines ( the 1 train is only one block away) as well as the M5, M4, M19, and the M11 buses. Travel time is less than 20 mins to midtown Manhattan.
The apartment is located in front of Riverbank State Park offering a swimming pool, track, gym, soccer field, basketball courts, tennis courts, skating and an amazing bike path that stretches the length of Manhattan.
There are several good restaurants in the neighborhood, a Rite Aid on the corner, a supermarket and several banking machines apx. a block away.
I think airbnb works best for both guest and host when you have a little dialog before hitting the "book it" button. So please feel free to ask any questions you might have about myself, my family and the accommodations.
Thanks! Hope to be able to host you during your stay in New York!
I enjoyed my stay at Alicia's home. It's a very nice apartment, quiet, in a good location with convenient transportation. Alicia and her son are both very nice, Alicia helped me to find a car to the airport and told me some interesting things about NYC and the neighborhood. If I got another chance to visit NYC, I would stay there again!
He estado muy a gusto estos dias en casa de Alicia, he tenido mi independencia y ella me ha ayudado en todo lo que he necesitado. La habitacion es pequeña pero muy práctica. Muy bien todo.
I absolutely loved staying with Alicia. She was very welcoming and the room/apartment was very clean and in a safe location; I felt very comfortable and at-home. The room is a great size and has great amenities (a half bath) for the price. She gives you a spare set of keys and there's a side entrance that guests go in and out of (as she described in her listing) so you don't feel like you're disturbing the host and can come and go freely. She was also very flexible with the checkout time, which was very nice since I had an extremely late night/early morning flight. Thank you Alicia!
Staying at Alicia's for two nights brought back fond memories of my first apartment experience in New York (many years ago) and I felt right at home. Like Alicia's it was one of those spacious UWS pre-wars but hers is filled with wonderful, vibrant artwork and the riverscape highlighted by the GWB cannot be beat. Talk about a room with a view. The location is also unbeatable with the subway and bus stop just a block away. Extra special features are the room's toilet and sink, and the private (second) entrance into the apartment. One of the best things about Airbnb is the opportunity to meet and stay with terrific people and Alicia is one of them. Would I stay with Alicia again; you bet!
I had the best experience staying at this place in northanhattan. Can't wait to stay again soon.
This accommodation was perfect for me in terms of the room size and the price. It is a little out of the way in terms of the location. But it only take about 20 minutes on the subway to get into the hub of New York's night life and attractions. The closest subway station is literally around the corner from the apartment. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're on a tight budget.
The host, Alicia was very helpful and provided me with lots of tips on what to see and travel instructions.
Great host, great room & great location! I had a great stay with Alicia, she is lovely. The room is private and having your own toilet and sink is a real treat. The apartment is so close to the subway so you can get into Times Square in under 25 mins. I would love to stay at Alicia's again if I came back to NYC.
I just spent a week at Alicia's place and liked it a lot. The room with a great view of the George Washington Bridge and the Hudson River is cosy and has it's own half-bathroom. The view Everything is clean and tidy. Alicia is a friendly and welcoming host and it's very interesting to talk with her. The beautiful art in her apartment makes the atmosphere special. The subway station is just a minute away. Runners find a nice path for their jogs just outside the building in the Riverbank State Park. I recommend Alicia's place highly. Thank you, Alicia!
My stay with Alicia was absolutely divine
She has a wonderful guest quarters and did much to make me feel welcome. I frequent NY often and this time I needed a homebase. This stay was perfect...private room with ensuite bath and a great view of the river! She was an excellent hostess to me and my god-daughter who needed a few hours to unwind after a long flight from Greece. I look forward to my next stay and I recommend her home with high scores.
Everything ok! Thank U Alicia :)
