1) Check in hours between 9 am and 7 pm.
2) Check out has to be in the morning between 8:30 and 12:30
3) The door of the apartment has to be close with both locks each time you go out. Be careful not to go out without the keys because the door may just lock itself and you may be locked out. I am providing complete sets of keys: if you loose one I would ask you 50$ refund to replicate the lost set.
4) No private party in the apartment, no extra guests.
5) Garbage has to be brought downstairs in the specific garbage dump of the building: also garbage is divided in 2 different bags: organic and general.
6) please keep music, voice, on a moderate volume as the building has thin walls...
7) if you use air conditioned turn it off when you go out of the apartment otherwise electrical bill will show an extra expense that I would have to charge extra if it is exaggerated.
8) Children under age of 12 not allowed.
10) NO CHECK IN on Sundays
11) LONG TERM GUESTS: my assistant will clean apartment and change linen every ten days. This implies $50 extra to be paid directly to cleaning lady 3 times a month.
My daughter and her boyfriend had spent almost ten months in this apartment, as freshmen at the New York University. The apartment was a true home for my kids, with all the necessary amenities. The space is ample, with a lot of natural light - in short, a beautiful apartment.
The proximity to the subway station was a big plus.
Our relationship with Nicoletta, the host, was very good. Everytime we needed to get in touch with her she was very prompt with her answers and everytime she provided all the help or clarification, as needed.
Nicoletta is really a great host.
For both reasons: the apartment itself and the host, we warmly recommend this apartment as a good place to stay in New York: a nice apartment, with a lot of natural light and very close to the subway. What more could one ask for?
We stayed with Nicoletta in her fabulous apartment in New York for almost a fortnight in the summer of 2014. We loved to meet her and we loved the vibe in Spanish Harlem. Every night was like coming home. The apartment is very comfortable, room enough for housing all the four of us (family with two teenagers). Good bathroom, good kitchen, good airconditioning. Lovely decorated, very stylish! Metroline 1 is only two blocks away and within walking distance there are also other lines available. Making arrangements with Nicoletta was very pleasant. Her responses were so quick and to the point. She gave us great tips about the surroundings. We definitely recommend her and her apartment and would like to stay there again the next time we'll visit NYC.
I spent 2 months in this apartment with 2 of my friends and I must say it is a perfect place for a long time stay. The apartment is very well equiped with everything you need for cooking, and plenty of room for personal belongings, and a very pleasant bathroom. The beds are very confortable, and there is plenty of linen.
There is a washing machine in the basement of the building that can be used for 5$, and there is even an iron and ironing board in the apartment.
We really felt like home during these 2 months.
Nicoletta is a perfect host : she was ready to answer all our questions before we made the booking, and even called me just before we left for NY, and this makes us feel quite confident.
She also stayed in touch with us during the stay, always ready to help us with kind and useful advice.
Carla, who welcomed us on our arrival and regularly came for cleaning, is also a very nice person.
The situation is very convenient, near the metro which takes you everywhere you need, and near places you can go shopping. The neighbourhood is quite safe and secure.
I recognize that the heavy traffic on Riverside Drive can some times be a nuisance...
I highly recommend this place.
Thank you Eleonore!
I m sorry you were uncomfortable for the window situation, didn't you use the roll up curtains? I usually keep them at half window hight, so that the sun doesn't t come in too much during the day, and at night I roll them down completely....
Thank you very much for your advises! I ll keep them in mind and try to make apartment more comfortable!!!
All the best to you and your family!

Un appartement bien équipé et spacieux (nous étions 4) bien placé sur la ligne 1 du métro (20 min de Times Square) avec des supermarchés proches. Nous avons été bien accueillis par l'assistante de Nicoletta qui nous a bien tout expliqué. La chambre principale est un peu bruyante la nuit à cause de la route proche et d'une mauvaise isolation au niveau du climatiseur. Je recommande cependant cet appartement.
We had a fantastic time in New York in every way and far over our expectations! The assistant Clara received us as agreed and was nice and helpful and gave us good information about this and that.
According to the Description of the Apartment it says it´s light and calm. Yes, it is very nice and light but calm…well…
the Apartment is on a corner at the Riverside Drive with fairly busy traffic. Below this street goes another route along the river. Traffic from there you hear quite well even at night so bring earplugs!
Besides the traffic noise at nights I will approve to the description of the apartment. We felt at home and comfortable and the location was very good in terms of closeness to both the shops and the subway.
Attention! Remember that you can´t check in on Sundays at all and not later than 7 a´clock in the evening the other days of the week. Our flight from Sweden landed at 9 a´clock in the evening and it would take us perhaps another 1,5-2 hours to get to the apartment. It was then too late for us to get access to the apartment. I understood that it was too expensive for Nicoletta to have an assistant receiving us late in the evening. A bit surprising for us considering that we paid a substantial sum for staying in the flat for 10 nights. The first night we therefore had to stay in a hotel. I have rented apartments earlier (in Europe), it has never happened that a late arrival has prevented us from being able to check in the date of arrival. We didn´t arrive from next door so to say.
With respect to not being able to check in the arrival date and the traffic noise we will still recommend the apartment.
