You'll have a simple, reasonably sized room with all the necessities: heat, hot water, warm bed, air-conditioning, and wireless internet. Bathroom and kitchen right down the hall. Great home base for business at Columbia or exploring the whole city.

Room for rent in a two-bedroom apartment between Riverside and Central Park at the top of Manhattan's Upper West Side. Columbia University and the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine are both two blocks up.
I do not have pets.
The room comes equipped with:
-futon (57 x 80 inches/ 145 x 203 cm with pocket spring mattress)
-a privacy latch that allows you to lock the door from the inside
There is easy access to the kitchen and bathroom, which are both right next to the guest bedroom. You're welcome to use everything in the kitchen: fridge, stove, oven, sink, dining table, and utensils.
There is also a big ironing board and iron you're welcome to use.
There's wireless internet, air-conditioning, and heating throughout the apartment. A laundromat is right downstairs as well as a cafe/ bar/ restaurant.
Columbia University has a big presence in my neighborhood and there are always lots of students out and about. There are a ton of great restaurants up and down Broadway and Amsterdam. A walk to either Riverside or Central Park is just a few minutes.
The Subway (1 train, with express train two stops down) is one block over on Broadway. Your total travel time to Times Square, for instance, would be less than 15 minutes, from the time you caught the 1 train to the time your express train arrived in the station.
Ask as many questions as you like - I usually respond right away.
I needed a place to stay last minute, and Spencer was more than accommodating!!! I could not have asked for a better stay. Spencer is an awesome guy and such a caring host. I would definitely stay here again!
Very good experience. I add to other commets that there's plenty of closet space and lots of hangers to place your clothes and stuff. Spencer is a tidy person and a great and helpful host. Extremely convenient for those who have something to do al Columbia. Nº 1 subway train is only one block from the apt. There's also a 24/7 market one block from the apt where you can get any food you want (ready-made or to cook home). There was an umbrella at the room that saved my life during snow storms! Recommended!
He's a super considerate, caring and responsible person. And the whole place is tidy and efficient. Will go directly to his place next time when I arrive.
This was my 4th time to stay with Spencer and I will definitely stay with him again. He is an excellent host; prompt, easy to communicate with and very concerned that your stay is pleasant. I always felt like I had plenty of privacy, even though I was only renting a room and not an entire apt. The subway and plenty of food options are close by and it is a very safe area. I highly recommend trying to stay with Spencer while you are in NYC!
Spencer went out of his way to make sure I had a pleasant stay. He kept saying "Your only job is to enjoy the stay!" He is a great guy and a wonderful, friendly, helpful host. The room is bigger than it looks on the picture. And it is also very quiet - no street noise or traffic noise. Its a great location very close to everything. I would be very happy to stay again and recommend to anyone who is visiting NYC.
I had a brilliant stay with Spencer! Really great simple room on the upper west side, extremely conveniently located next to a subway stop for the 1 line to take you straight downtown within 15 minutes. Spencer was the best host - helpful, friendly and professional, always with his guest's best interests in mind. Highly recommended! Thankyou Spencer!
I enjoyed my stay very much at Spencer's apartment. The bedroom was neat, clean and the size was pretty good for NYC standards. The bed was comfortable and the host did everything to make my stay comfortable. The location of the apartment is also great, close to anything you need including transportation. I would consider staying here again if the opportunity arises.
It is me who has to thank you Spencer. You are an excellent host and it was very nice to meeting you in N.Y. I strongly recommend your apartment to anyone you would like to spend some days in your new city. I enjoyed our talks and I hope to come to N.Y. soon. Thanks a lot. I wish you Mary Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Spencer is such a great host! He made everything to improve the quality of my holiday in NYC with useful hints and funny chats. I really loved his relaxed attitude. The flat has a perfect location, with two subway lines, shops, cafes and restaurant. Last, but not least, the location is not noisy at all. A real plus in the big apple.
Spencer is a good American boy. He is clean, considerate, and tries to make his guest comfortable. He has also kept an extra heater in the room for foreigners who may find NYC cold. I liked his place and would stay there again when visiting Manhattan.
