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!
No Smoking or drugs. Food and booze in apartment belongs to myself and roommates, but you are more then welcome to bring your own.
Considerate, clean and quiet guests only... no party animals please :-)
Please be aware that this building is a 4th floor walk up. If you were to need any assistance with your luggage just let me know I'll be glad to help.
The apartment is in a pre-war (old early 1900's) building. It has some quirks, but the apartment itself is newly renovated.
I will do whatever I can to accommodate any reasonable guest requests.
Any questions - please feel free to ask!
This was our third visit and stay and it will not be our last. Patrick is a fantastic host and made our time in the snow warm and welcoming.
I would highly recommend staying here to anybody visiting New York. The location is ideal - right on the Park - with public transport and coffee places right on your doorstep. The room is comfortable and the host terrific.
My companion and I, both in our 70s, enjoyed our 11 days with Patrick very much. For us, the trip was primarily about music and dance and mostly at Lincoln Center. There is a convienient subway stop 3 short blocks away, which made our trips to Lincoln Center and other parts of the city quick and easy. We also enjoyed our walks in snow covered Central Park, across the street from the apartment.
I especially enjoyed my conversations with Patrick the composer, about music, especially his take on new music. I came home with some CDs of his compositions and have played them several times in the 6 days I have been home. They are very enjoyable!
Patrick was very available to answer questions and help us out with ideas since he works from home. We had the livingroom/kitchen area pretty much to ourselves.
There was plenty of room in the refrigerator and cupboard for the food we bought at the nearby Whole Foods store.
If I ever get back to NYC, I will stay with Patrick if his place is available.
Patrick was a nice host, always available and helpful. So glad me and my dad decided to stay at this charming little apartment rather than a boring hotel room. Great location too! Enjoy!
Patrick was a great host. Everything worked smoothly and super relaxed. The apartment is very nice, only the small shower took some time to get used to. The location right next to central park, very close to a subway and just a block away from Starbucks and Whole Foods is awesome.
I will go there again for sure if I need to go back to New York.
Patrick was a great host- very helpful and accommodating and gave us some great advice regarding things to do and see. The apartment is located in a lovely area in the Upper West Side which is very close to bus stations and the subway. The room is comfortable, clean and we would definitely stay there again. Thanks Patrick!
It was our first time with airbnb and we had a great experience at patrick's apartment. The place is nice, clean and well situated and Patrick is a perfect host.
Patrick was at home to greet us on arrival. The apartment is clean and quiet and our bedroom and private bath were just as advertised. The building has some of the quirks that come with old age but we were entirely comfortable there and would stay again.
