Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Alex was an excellent host, and I couldn't have been happier with my stay. The apartment is beautiful, airy, and quiet. I loved how it was decorated, and it was a welcome retreat at the end of the day. I was thrilled with the location, which was about a block and a half from Central Park, and a block and a half from three different subway lines. I even found it an easy walk to the Upper East Side through the park.
    The apartment was clean, and the bed and bedding were very comfortable. Alex is a friendly and prompt communicator, and she even left me a list of nearby amenities (groceries, laundries, coffee shops, even sushi) that was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Nous avons passé un super séjour dans cet appartement.
    L'accueil d'Alex était parfait, très chaleureuse et soucieuse que notre séjour chez elle se passe bien. Elle nous a laissé plein d'informations pratiques sur New York et ce qu'on pouvait trouver autours de chez elle. Elle a pris soin de nous demander en milieu de séjour si tout se passait bien et qu'elle restait disponible si on avait des questions.
    En ce qui concerne l'appartement, il est idéalement situé, entre deux lignes de métro qui distribuent très bien Manhattan, tout proche de Central Park, très calme et c'est un luxe à New York! Il y a des restaurants tout autours et de quoi faire ses courses facilement. Les photos correspondent très bien à la réalité, il est très lumineux ce qui est vraiment agréable.
    Bref si je devais retourner à New York il est certain que je demanderai a nouveau ce logement!

  • I stayed in Alex's apartment for 8 nights in the week between April and May 2014. The place is exactly like portrayed in the pictures and in her description, perfectly clean, warm and quiet. The location is ideal for visiting Manhattan, the red and blue/orange subway lines and a bus that brings you to the other side of Central Park are 5-7 minutes away: you can get anywhere in the heart of Manhattan in 20-25 minutes, at most. The possibility of being in the middle of Central Park in 5 minutes and enjoying a walk in the sun is priceless too.
    But what really stands out about Alex and her place is that, from the moment you step in, you will feel her CARE for...everything: all the little details will make you feel like a respected host and will help you feel like respecting her hospitality.
    If anybody will ever ask me for an advice of where to stay in NY, I will tell them to make sure to check if Alex's place is available!

  • Despite the absence of Alex, everything was perfectly organized for our arrival.
    (someone was there to greet us very detailed explanatory note on the apartment and the area, water bottle and breakfast provided).

    The apartment is very clean, very comfortable, very functional, very well heated and very zen. Practical bathroom (towels, shower gel and soap provided).

    We highly recommend it.

    The apartment is close to metro lines 1, 2, 3 (about 5 minutes) and lines B, C, (about 8 minutes).

    The neighborhood is very quiet and close to Central Park.

  • This apartment is a quiet oasis in this exciting city. You can never expect a better location: upper west side, quiet street, 1 or 2 blocks walk to central park and subways, many great restaurants and organic food markets. The apartment is very well-designed and extremely clean. The bed is large and VERY comfortable. What make this apartment more fantastic is the host. Alex is one of the most warm hearted person I've ever seen. Whether you've been to NYC before, Alex will take care of you from beginning to the end. Living there is a unique experience for us. It's feels like our home in this city.

  • Alex's studio was absolutely wonderful for our week and a half visit to NYC. From beginning to end, Alex was an absolute joy to deal with. She was extremely responsive and willing to help us work out the details of our stay. She even happily returned my coat by mail after I left it.

    Her place is in a great location for museum visits, and generally for experiencing the Upper West Side like a local. The place has easy access to both the red and blue subway lines you can get almost anywhere with a single transfer at most. The neighborhood is very safe and there is a reasonable selections of shops, delis, restaurants, etc within a few blocks.

    The apartment was immaculately clean and thoughtfully decorated and laid out. The only thing I wish I knew going beforehand was that it is a 3rd floor walk-up. It would not have changed my decision to rent this place, but I would have brought less luggage!

    Thanks Alex for creating a beautiful and relaxing space in the midst of hectic Manhattan.

  • The best way to sum up my experience at Alex's apartment is to say that all future trips to NYC will be planned around whether or not her place is available.

    From the very first moment I contacted Alex, she was wonderful. Communicative, prompt, flexible, and a pleasure to rent from. My trip was very last minute, but she made sure everything was perfect and when I arrived at her apartment I couldn't have been happier. It was gorgeous, peaceful, very clean, and just like the photos. And the location? Amazing. Just a few blocks from multiple subway lines, Central Park, the Natural History Museum, and tons of great restaurants, bars, and cafes. I'm originally from NYC and I'm quite picky on location, but her place on the Upper West Side was a great homebase for my week-long stay.

    Other than providing such a wonderful apartment, Alex also went above and beyond - calling to check on me when NYC wound up getting a freak mini blizzard during my stay and urging me to borrow her winter boots. Thanks for saving my feet, Alex!

  • Alex is a fantastic host. From day one she was timely and prompt with her communication with me and always approachable.
    She is also incredibly helpful and willing to assist - she provided to me a lot of information and tips about the apartment, the neighbourhood and also New York City which was very handy.
    The apartment itself is great - absolutely immaculate, comfortable and also quiet. It is located in a nice neighbourhood, conveniently close to public transport and other amenities.
    It was always good to return to the apartment after a long day of being a tourist. I would definitely stay again.

  • I stayed in the apartment for 5 nights during the first week of November 2011.

    I really liked the fact that the apartment was immaculately clean (!), bright and calm. It is located in a great neighborhood in which you can find any shop you need within 2 blocks away.

    With several subways also within 2 blocks it is perfect to visit New York City. Central park is also very close and beautiful!

    87th street is quite calm so I found the neighborhood safe, also very late at night.

    Host Alex provided enough tips for dinner, coffee and overall visits for 3 weeks instead of one!

    Great experience, host & apartment!
