Alex was a wonderful host - so helpful, communicative, and generous in her time and effort helping us to settle in and enjoy our stay. Her apartment was in a lovely, quiet street, and was a brilliant place for some much-needed rest and relaxation after exploring the big city. The apartment was clean, bright and had everything we needed, and was only a street away from the nearest subway stop as well as Central Park. Would definitely stay here again!

Alex's house was lovely, just as described and shown. The neighborhood was nice and the very short walks to the subway lines was a huge perk. Alex herself was great and made me feel welcome. I would recommend her apartment highly, especially if you want / need to be on the Upper West Side, or, like me, needed a fast route to Columbia.

My stay at Alex's cozy and lovely apartment was perfect! The location, quiet neighborhood, convenient transportation and many many things made my NYC experience unforgettable. I never got the chance to meet Alex in person but she is very helpful and response quickly! Will definitely recommend her apartment to my friends!

Alex's home is a wonderful oasis of calm in the centre of Manhattan that we felt so lucky to have found. Alex also made us so welcome - was in touch early on to help organise our trip and checked in to make sure we were fine. We could not have been made more welcome - amazing list of top tips for the area from local cafes, culture, museums.... lovely comfortable bed, fluffy towels. Gorgeous area - 2 mins from the park, 2 mins from great restaurants, lovely vibe. Thanks for having us!

We had an excellent stay at the Zen Studio. Alex was a wonderful host from start to finish. She had very good communication and had quick responses. She even provided us with very helpful information about our trip to NYC of places to eat, play, site-see, etc. The apartment was exactly as described though words do not do it justice for how peaceful and relaxing of a home it is. After a long day out and about, it was very nice to come back to the very comfortable apartment. It is in an excellent location with a short 1-2 block walks to two metro stations and conveniently located near great places to eat. The proximity to Central Park is also a highlight, as we were able to do several morning trips here. I would definitely love to stay here again on a future trip to NYC.

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!
