Interaction with Guests
I usually mail out the keys, and communicate via phone, text or email. I am easily accessible.
I love the fact that is a safe, friendly laid-back environment. It is close to the subway and has amazing ethnic restaurants which is walking distance from the apartment. It is also minutes away from the famous Zabars cafe and grocery store and Cafe Lalo!
There are two subways located on 86th street and 79th street. Which are both 2-3 blocks from my apartment.

This is a clean and cosy typical brownstone apartment. Ambika is a great host who is very good at communicating and responds quickly. She provides the toiletries you might need – shampoo, soap, hairdrier and so on – and generously invited me to use her milk and coffee the night I arrived. Other plusses: the bed is SUPER comfy (loved it!) with the best pillows I have ever slept on, the wireless is fast, and there’s a Keurig coffee machine. You are definitely staying in someone’s home, so there’s not tons of storage, but Ambika provided some space for me to hang my clothes and so on. The best thing about the apartment is the location – Riverside Park is just steps away, and you can’t beat the upper west side for a safe but buzzy atmosphere and great shops and restaurants. In spite of this fairly lively atmosphere, being west of Broadway means it’s very calm and quiet at night – I had no trouble sleeping at all. It is (obviously) an older property and the common parts are perhaps not the most luxurious, but if you want a comfortable ‘New York experience’ in a great neighbourhood - and a very responsible, reliable host - I can recommend Ambika’s place.
Ambika is friendly and very accommodating. We appreciated a flexible check in and out time. The space is in a great and safe location. Flat was neat and tidy.
We had a great time at Ambika's place. It really is a perfect location, nearby subway stations, Central Park and lots of other places to visit. Ambika helped us with every question we had during our stay. We would definitely recommend her place
The apartment was exactly as listed, clean and comfortable. It was very quiet. It was nice to be so close to Riverside park and the subway. It was perfect for two of us. Ambika mailed us the keys ahead of time so I didn't have to worry about asking her to let us in late at night. She left clear information on the internet use and so on. It was a very pleasant stay!
Last minute savior! Within hours we had a lovely home to rest our weary heads. The house provided all the perks necessary to fix a home cooked meal (which is necessary when my parents are in town). It was easy access, a quiet and safe neighborhood and a lovely place to relax after a busy day in NYC. Minutes from the subway and walking distance to a beautiful market and fantastic restaurants. Thank you so much. We would definitely stay again.
Very cute, charming, and quiet neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.
I had a great stay in New York. The apt was great
Exactly as advertised, the communication was easy and great.
I will definitely stay there again if possible next
Time I'm in NY. Thanks again
