The apartment is located on the ground floor of a 1920s building on a quiet, tree-lined street on the Upper East Side, close to Rockefeller University and the UES hospital complex. There are many excellent and inexpensive, ethnic eateries a short walk away on First and Second Avenues, as well as a few high-end restaurants, such as Daniel and Felice. For the young at heart, there's Alice's Tea Cup, Serendipity, and Dylan's Candy Bar.
There is excellent bus service on the M66 cross-town and M31 down- and cross-town. Also, fast north and south service on the new M15 "Select" buses, which will deliver you to Wall Street in 30 minutes, as will the Lexington Avenue subway from 68th Street (No. 6 train, change at Grand Central to the No. 4 or 5 express).
Of unusual interest in the immediate neighborhood are the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum on East 61st Street, a 1799 carriage house that was converted into a hotel in 1826 to provide country get-aways for the city folk living below 14th Street. On 70th Street is the glorious 1849 house of Henry Clay Frick who, after his wife's death in 1931, opened the house, with its wonderful collection of paintings and sculptures, to the public. Also close by is the tramway to Roosevelt Island, which, especially at dusk, makes for a lovely flight through the stars and lights of the 59th Street Bridge. Trellis is the very welcoming restaurant on Main Street where you may listen to live music on summer weekend evenings and at all times enjoy comfort food with a nice glass of Chianti.
Also for music lovers, Lincoln Center is a bus ride away on the M66 cross-town from around the corner at 67th and York and the M31 will drop you outside of Carnegie Hall. For shoppers, Bloomingdale's is a short walk away, as are a couple of Gaps, Banana Republics, Sephoras, and any number of interesting boutiques on Third and Lexington Avenues. There is a T.J. Maxx on First Avenue by the bridge and a brand new Century 21 across town on the M66 to Broadway.

Daphne is an excellent host, very discreet and friendly, the place is nice, very nice area and the delicious breakfast
Had a great time! Daphne is a wonderful host. The room was perfect and Charlotte, the cat, was adorable.
Staying with Daphne was my first airbnb experience and it was excellent. Daphne is a lovely lady who is friendly, interesting and has lots of tips on NY to share. She was very kind and helpful and a wonderful host. The room and bathroom was clean, comfortable and perfect for my needs and the breakfast is a great start to the day. The apartment is in a fantastic location, walking distance to museum mile and other areas, close to restaurants and the subway. I would definitely stay with Daphne again!
Not a big room, the only window is facing opposite building' wall - not much sunlight in it. Daphne is a great hostess - many small things that make traveler's life easier - printed map of places nearby, a couple of umbrellas for bad weather, a rich collection of books about New York, etc. The street is quiet (though I was awaked a couple of times by sounds like someone was knocking on water pipes) and it's Manhattan!)
I would recomend Daphne's place for a short stay.
Location! Location! Location! It's a tiny room, in what may be referred to as a shabby-chic apartment, with luxury items such as a real down comforter and plush bathroom towels; and a sit-down breakfast in the graciously decorated dining area. It's remarkably quiet for Manhattan and the bed is comfortable. I slept well both nights I was there.
Airbnb is a great way to find accommodation, I will definitely use it again!

Daphne was a great host for our short stay in the city. The room is small, modest, and clean. Daphne was helpful and ready to have us for another night if the snow storm did not let up. This is a perfect place if you need a place to sleep while you explore the city.
Daphne was a delightful hostess, very helpful but never in our way. She provided a nice breakfast, a cat of our own (Charlotte was always there to great us on our beds when we returned to the room), and conversation just to the extent that we desired. She clearly followed our lead in regards to how much interaction was wanted. Our room in Daphne's apartment felt like home for the two days we stayed--so much more enjoyable than a hotel stay. I highly recommend this place to stay in New York. Our trip felt more like a vacation than any trips I've ever taken when staying in hotel rooms.
Great place to stay. The location was convenient for me to catch the bus I needed to the conference I was attending. I felt safe in her neighborhood. The room I stayed in was as pictured. Very charming and clean. With plenty books and guides on a bookshelf to look through. I missed my pets back home less, because Charlotte (the official welcoming committee) kept me company while I was in my room.
I had a busy schedule, where my day started very early, but Daphne couldn't have been a better hostess. She got tea and breakfast ready for me when I needed it. Even on the last day when my flight changed to 7:20am!
I can't recommend this room and hostess enough.
