This listing is for an entire beautiful studio apartment located in the heart of Manhattan by 37th and 3rd. This apartment is in a very nice and safe elevator building on the 5th floor. It is within short walking distance to many of the great sights in NY, including Times Square, Central Park, Grand Central, 5th Avenue Shopping, Rockefeller Center, and many more!
This neighborhood has a great vibe. There are plenty of great restaurants and bars. It is very safe and you don't have to worry about walking alone late at night.
It has a fully stocked kitchen w/dishwasher, air conditioning and heating, WIFI-internet, microwave, a full bed, chairs, a kitchen table, dresser and closet (all fully available for guest use). There is a washing machine and dryer in the basement of the building if you wish to do laundry. Although it is very close to central Manhattan, the apartment is on a quiet side of the street, and traffic noises can barely be heard in the room. Fresh linens and towels are provided, along with bathroom essentials like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and toilet paper.
The room comes with a sofa that can be pulled out into a bed to accommodate more people (if more than 2 people, please indicate in reservation, since additional linens and pillows will be provided).
There is a convenience store around the corner, and plenty of great restaurants, cafes, and bars in the neighborhood.
There is an unfurnished rooftop area on the opposite side of the building that can be used for smoking or hanging out during the day, although loud noises and drinking are prohibited.
Grand Central Station and multiple subway lines are only blocks away on 42nd St, including the S,4,5,6,7 and MetroNorth.
Check-in and check-out times are very flexible, but will depend primarily on whether someone is staying before/after you. If there is no conflict, you may check in/out as early or late as you want (If guest times overlap, then check-out is at noon and check-in at 1pm). If needed, there is cheap luggage storage available nearby. For reservation pricing, please see calendar, as prices vary depending on time of year. There is also a small charge for cleaning. If you plan to stay 10+ days, ask about my lower long term rate.
I hope you enjoy your stay in my apartment and your visit to the Big Apple!

My husband and I stayed at Chris's place over a weekend while I was at a conference. Chris was an excellent, friendly host, who met us at the apartment to show us around and give us the key. He was always easily reached by text. The apartment was just what we needed: a clean, comfortable, conveniently located home base from which to explore Manhattan. We would definitely stay here again.
This apartment was in a really great location in the Murray Hill district of Manhattan. Close to Grand Central Station, the UN, and the Empire State Building. There were quite a few great places to eat nearby, so we didn't have any problem finding food.
We arrived an hour or so later than initially expected but Chris was kind enough to wait around for us so that we could be accomodated.
Great location, easy check in and check out. Would definitely stay again.
This apartment is well-located, but a bit spartan in nature. It reliably checks off all the boxes for a comfortable place to lay one's head for the night. Chris was easy to work with and responsive.
Flew in during some nasty winter weather, and ended up with a delayed flight. Chris worked with us to make sure we could get into the apartment and checked in when we needed.
It was a clean and comfortable place to crash -- exactly what we needed. Because of our odd check in, we never found the full instructions on how to set the heater, but that didn't really matter (and I never pestered Chris about it), as it was actually a comfortable temperature inside. That alone is fairly rare.
Never got a chance to use the fully furnished kitchen, aside from the fridge, but all was clean and kept up. The building and the neighborhood are nice and quiet, and there really wasn't too much loud road noise either.
We'd happily stay again if we find ourselves in need of a comfortable room in Murray Hill.
Chris's place is ideally located in Murray Hill, right around great bars and restaurants! The place itself had plenty of room and was more than enough for the two of us! Chris kept fresh towels ready for us and made sure the bathroom had full stock! He was a great host and was extremely patient with me when i was running late to meet him! I fully recommend his place to anyone, great location and great host!
Chris is a great host. He gave me an extensive run down of the apt. The place is in the best area. Short cab ride to LGA, great food, great shopping. It's a perfect no frills apartment and great price.
The only thing I would mention is there is no outlet in the bathroom which made doing my hair difficult in the morning for work. So just a heads up ladies.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this mid town apartment in manhattan. The location was great you could walk most places and the subway was only a few blocks if you need to go further. The apartment itself is simple but has everything you need while you are away and the supermarket a block down the street was convenient for food shopping.
Chris was a great host and adapted when our bus arrived over an hour late. Would recommend this place if you are a couple looking for an apartment in manhattan.
The appartment has a perfect location, you can go walking from there to times square in aproximatelly 15 or 20 minutes, it is really close to the Central Station where you can take the line of train or Subway that you want and go over around all New York, I never met Chris Umbach in person but he was in constant comunication with us, and that is really important for people who is travelling, in despite he makes our travel really easy, the price is really good in comparation with hotels and other kind of stablishments near the zone, and the room is also really big, we was three people and we had not any space problem.
When we arrived we found the bed and the sheets dirty but I think it was because the person in charge to clean them thougth we would arrive more late than we really did, however she clean them for it and bougth a new towels for us, We really enjoy in the flat of Chris and I recomend it, I will travel to New York and another time and unless I will find another place better than this I will choose Chris appartment for sure.
In a escale from one to ten, the place has a 8,5, valorating the price, the location and the space as its better points. Thank you Chris for everything.
Great few days in NYC, studio well located. No problem for the check in and check out. Simple but there is everything that you need. I would definitely recommend this place for a stay in NYC.
