Hello! I have a dedicated, beautiful guest bedroom with a private black marble bathroom in my renovated three bedroom apartment in Manhattan on the Upper West Side. This classic New York building is turn-of-the century (pre-war), on the corner of Central Park West and 100th street... across the street is Central Park!
The apartment is conveniently located near subway and buses... within walking distance to over a dozen museums, and you can get almost anywhere in Manhattan within 20-40 minutes, door-to door!
* Just to clarify, since the question comes up a lot, I am only renting this bedroom, not the entire apartment. If you need another room, or this one is booked, I occasionally rent out my bedroom if I'm traveling (check out my other listing).
This beautiful room is a dedicated guest bedroom, and is fully furnished with a private black marble full-bathroom (only you will use this bathroom!). There is beautiful brick wall, dark hardwood floors, and a wall-unit that lets you hang clothes, with drawers and shelves so you can fully unpack - you don't have to live out of a suitcase. There is a plush pillow-top Kings Down full-size mattress on a captains bed with 2 drawers that is available to put more of your things in. There is also a small wooden desk and chair. This is an interior bedroom within the apartment, and the windows face a light well (not Central Park). There is high-speed Wi-Fi throughout apartment, including this bedroom, and you are free to use it.
I will supply sheets and towels. The room will comfortably fit a couple. The bed has a cozy down comforter, and pillows. You are welcome to hang out in the large and comfortable living room during your stay. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen as much (or little) as you want. There is a shelf in the refrigerator for your food, as well as space in the cabinets to put groceries. I keep basics groceries in stock for when guests check-in such as milk, juice, tea, coffee, snacks, etc.
If you have a lot of luggage, you can always store them in the living room, under the piano.
This is a large, furnished, 3 bedroom apartment with 2 marble bathrooms & kitchen (approx 1200 sq ft). It is a beautifully renovated pre-war building, and we are on the 4th floor (walk-up). There is wi-fi in the apartment. I have a great long term roommate (one) in the 2nd bedroom, who is mostly out during the daytime. I have the third bedroom.
Most guests say this apartment looks like the quintessential New York City apartment, being right on Central Park with the brick walls in every room, fire escape, grand piano, and dark wood floors.
Since I am a composer and music producer the apartment is filled with musical things... photos and posters from my shows, musical instruments, and my studio setup. I also have a 6ft baby-grand Baldwin piano which guests can play during the day, when myself and my roommate are out of the apartment. I've had many wonderful musical guests stay, ranging from students auditioning at music conservatory to musicians performing at Carnegie Hall!
The neighborhood is residential area that is quiet and safe! The Police and Fire station is 2 blocks away. We are also within 2 blocks from a lot of stores including Whole Foods, several pharmacies, banks, a bakery, and dry cleaner. 3 blocks away on Broadway are tons of restaurants, and many deliver.
We are located right on Central Park West on the Upper West Side of Manhattan - a very residential area. You can get almost anywhere in Manhattan within 20-40 minutes. Within walking distance of the apartment are more then a dozen museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, Natural History Museum, Hayden Planetarium, Neue Gallery, Jewish Museum, and many more. Also within walking distance is the famous "Tom's Diner"used in Seinfeld!
The 96th street B and C subway is a 2 minute walk from the building. Within 20 minutes (by subway) you can be in Times Square and the theater district for Broadway Shows. Within 20 to 40 min you can be almost anywhere in Manhattan! You can walk thru the park in about 15 or 20 minutes to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, or the Natural History Museum. From any of the main airports it will take about 1.5hrs to Newark or JFK by public transportation and 45-60 min by taxi. To Laguardia about 60 min by public transportation and 25-30 min by taxi.
If you are new to NYC, I am more then happy to help explain how to get places, recommendations, and answer any questions - I grew up in NYC!
This is a newly listed room so it is currently with only a few reviews. But you can see reviews from guests staying in my other room in the same apartment, by looking on the my "other listings" or "other property reviews" at the bottom of this page.
Any questions, please feel free to write!
We very much enjoyed staying in Patrick's apartment. The location is perfect - close to Subway and right next to Central Park. The apartment is clean and has all needed amenities. While the bedroom is not large, private bathroom is a big plus. Patrick is very courteous, willing to help, and is a pleasure to interact with. Overall, a very good experience.
I had a nice experience (my first time trying this) at Patrick's place. He helped me with my luggage (both coming and going) and is a gentleman! My room was well prepared and was clean and nice. Ditto for the bathroom! At night it was quiet and peaceful. And overall great experience for my first time, and I would return!
Great place and great location. Easy communication. Warm hospitality.
He was a good host,and for us, the location was perfect.
My boyfriend and I stayed for five nights in early January. Patrick was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early and check out late since the scheduling worked out. The room and apartment are clean and are as pictured on the listing. He was very knowledgeable about the city and give us some useful tips. The location is quite good. Thanks for a great stay! We would stay here again in the future!
Probably the best host I ever had while traveling! Room was awesome, extremely clean! Patrick was very friendly and even invited me out to a music event he hosted! He went above and beyond of being a good host, I highly recommend staying with him!
You cannot beat the location of his place....it's only 20 minutes away from Times Square, and for the price, it's an amazing deal.
Patrick's accomodations made for a great home base during our recent stay in NY city. We came and went on our own schedule, and found Patrick to be a very accomodating person. His home is clean and welcoming with close access to the B and C subway line -- within 3-4 blocks. Particularly nice was the private bathroom adjoining our bedroom. Small and clean, the accommodations matched our needs perfectly, and Patrick couldn't have been a nicer person.
We just returned from our fantastic trip to NYC. Our stay at Patrick's definitely enhanced our experience. His great location, proximity to subway heading down into Manhattan, Central Park, museums, etc. Patrick was very helpful and had several great recommendations for us. We highly recommend using his affordable apartment as a base for visiting NYC!!!
Great place! Great Host!
Patrick was very nice and accommodating, and the room with attached bathroom was perfect for our needs. The place is right across the street from the westside of mid-central park & we were close to several awesome sights and museums, and the subways is right on the corner.
great host! clean room/bathroom. very responsive, friendly. thank you patrick!
