Beautiful 1br on the Upper West Side.
Apartment is in a great location, close to Columbia University, the beautiful St. John’s Cathedral, just a few blocks from Central Park, Riverside Park, and Morning Side Park. Many amazing restaurants are just a few steps away and it's only 2 small blocks from the 1 train and 3 blocks from the B and C trains.
My charming 1 bedroom apartment is very sunny, with a comfortable full size bed in the bedroom, fold out couch in the living room, TV/DVD, brand new kitchen, brand new bathroom, and Internet.
It is on the 6th floor of an elevator building with an evening doorman.
Can't wait to hear from you!
Welcome to my apartment and I hope you enjoy your stay. Please don’t hesitate to call or email if you have any problems or questions.

Below are a few comments about the apartment that you may find useful:
-- Clean bedding is on the bed and towels are in the bathroom
-- To turn on the shower, just pull down (not twist) the little lever that is under the spout and then push the water handle towards the wall for water to run through the overhead shower.
-- I have a convection oven, so it's a little different then the usual microwave. To microwave, simply press the Micro Express button. Keep pressing it if you want to increase the amount of time, it will keep incrementing by 30 seconds.
-- Garbage is in the basement. Just press “B” in the elevator and take the only door out towards the garbage cans area. The key to the downstairs door will open the basement door as well.
-- To get on WiFi, use the following access info:
network name: cocolink
-- Before departing, please remove the last layer of bedding and put it in the laundry basket in the bedroom. Thank you.
-- Nearest Laundromat is around the corner on Amsterdam between 109th St and 110th St.
-- There is a small fold out table under the couch if you'd like to use it.
-- If you need to fold out the couch, please push it away from the wall, flip it up and push out on the bottom section of the couch until it clicks. This will make the couch fold out into a bed. You will find extra bedding in the couch storage area.
- Please be extra careful with the couch and not staining it, as it 's very hard to find such a thin fold out couch. :)
-- Paula, the cleaning lady comes in the morning once every two weeks, if that's the arrangement we have. Please don't be alarmed if she buzzes the door in the morning and if she comes in (she has key!). She only speaks Spanish and is a wonderful lady. Please be nice to her. :)
- Please feel free to use any kitchen utensils.
- Please don't smoke in the apt.
- The apt downstairs ring code is 502.
Lena's apartment was great for my short New Years retreat. Although I did not meet her, Lena was very helpful and easy to communicate with! She answered all of my questions in a clear and timely manner. The apartment was tidy and just as pictured. The immediate area has stores with everything you'd ever need as a traveler. Apartment is also subway/bus accessible - take advantage of it! And for fans of Seinfeld, Tom's Restaurant is only a few blocks away. Enjoyed my stay, thanks Lena!
Lena, was very helpful throughout. Her directions and house rules were straightforward and easy to understand. Overall a great experience at her apartment, just right for a couple nights in the upper west side.
To say it in one word: AWSEOME!!!
The apartment is located in a very nice area of New York. Central Park is so near, you could almost jump in from the window. There are a lot of trendy bars and restaurants in close vicinity.
The rooms are really as shown in the pictures and very clean. The bedroom has an air conditioner which is pretty cool in the hot nights. The bathroom is a little jewel in blue with a great shower (which I loved to use). We didn't used the kitchen but it looked also clean and very functional.
Lena wasn't there but she gave us a lot of informations and recommendations. She always was very helpful and answered potential questions very quickly. I definitely would book again.
The apartment was very nice, cozy and clean, close to subway and central park. We haven't met the host but we were in touch through e-mail. She was very nice and friendly.
Only little minus was the noise from the street.
Léna est une hôte prévenante et réactive, même n'étant pas présente lors de notre arrivée elle s'est assurée que tout se passait au mieux pour nous!
L'appartement est propre et conforme aux photos, le quartier est agréable, et l'accès très facile aux lignes de métro qui amènent rapidement vers le sud de Manhattan (20 minutes maxi de métro de la plupart des endroits touristiques). A recommander sans hésiter !
Lena is a thoughtful and responsive host, even not being present when we arrived she made sure everything was going well for us!
The apartment is clean and exactly like on photos, neighborhood is nice, very easy access to subway lines that quickly lead to the south of Manhattan (maximum 20minutes from most touristic places). Definitely recommended! Thanks again for everything Lena!
I was here for work for a week and this apartment was great! It was very clean and in a great neighborhood. It has an elevator which is somewhat rare in Manhattan and very much appreciated! The apartment was very clean and Lena (the host) was very communicative and helpful (she even gave me cake)! I would rent here again.
My wife and I went for a very short break to NY and we rented Lena department. From the first minute we arrived at the apartment we were pretty happy. The place looked as it was specified in the information available on the web. Lena is a very nice girl and inspires a lot of confidence. On arrival at the apartment, she gave us important details about the site and some recommendations to better enjoy our visit. The department has everything a visitor needs, and above all is very tidy and clean. The doorman of the building is very friendly. The area is fairly quiet and very close to two subway stations, which is important to organize trips into the downtown area. We strongly recommend to anyone who wants to visit NY stay in the department of Lena. At least that's what I hope to do when you return to NY .. Thanks for everything .. You are fantastic Lena
