Aliya's apartment was clean, cosy and lovely. It had everything we needed to make our 1 week stay comfortable. Aliya was also very accommodating allowing us to check out late and easily contactable for anything. There were no issues. The apartment is in a great location in the UWS, close walking distance to Central Park and subway stations, quite and safe. Recommended.
We had a great time at Aliya's. This a beautiful apartment, close to subway, very nice neighborhood. And Aliya is the perfect host!
Aliya's place was absolutely perfect. Eclectic, homey, excellent transportation hubs, clean and comfortable. It's a few blocks away from great running (Central Park, West Side Highway). I had a brilliant stay and it might have sold me on moving to the Upper West Side! Couldn't say enough nice things about Aliya and her generous hospitality. A+
Aliya is a wonderful host, extremely attentive and available whenever you need... it is also why our stay was just perfect.
Her apartment is very well located in a very nice area: lots of shops nearby, and close to the subway.
The bed is very comfortable and the neighborhood very quiet, which is very appreciated after a long day exploring New York!
I highly recommend it and we would not hesitate to return to her apartment if we travel to New York again!
Aliya's apartment was PERFECT for our 1 week stay in New York. Very central and very safe - we were coming home quite late each evening with no trouble. Only a short walk to a main subway line (5 blocks). Aliya is a gracious & superb host, providing everything that is needed & always reachable by phone/email. She even checked that we got to the airport ok once we'd left which was lovely! She let us use her landline phone to call national or international numbers (international with a phone card which you can purchase at a nearby shop) which was also really handy, as was the good wifi. Yes the apartment is small but it is clean has a good bathroom, therefore it was perfect for what we needed (somewhere to crash after a long day of exploring). We had no problem leaving $10 for cleaning fees because you can use as much towels/bedding as you need. When we return to NY in hopefully the not too distant future, we will definitely look into staying in Aliya's apartment again.
The best thing in this apartment is the great location!
Close to two metro lines including an express one, really close to Central Park and River Park, close to supermarkets, pharmacys, restaurants... Just perfect! The apartment is small, but very cozy. And Aliya is a good host :) Ah, is also really nice that we could cook - even if we did not really stayed home - and we also slept in a very confortable bed, this was great.
We really enjoy the experience!
Aliya's apartment was in the perfect location for us. The subway was a few minutes walk, a supermarket where we could buy anything and everything was just around the corner. We walked to Central Park and Riverside Park and loved being so close to some space and getting away from the hustle and bustle. We spent 2 weeks at the apartment and it became like home to us and we were sad to leave. It was very cosy but we were out every day so didn't spend much time there apart from sleeping. Aliya was the perfect host and we felt very comfortable in asking any questions we had. We loved NYC and will definitely return and will absolutely stay in Aliya's apartment the next time we visit.
This is a very special apartment. First of all, the host--Aliya--is extremely caring and nurturing. She wants you to relish your time in New York. She will recommend great restaurants, a shoe repair place down the street, a great food store, a fun place to hang out, directions to anywhere--or anything else! What a great resource. She is personally invested in your having a satisfying experience in her city. This also shows in her apartment--it is a place of great, calming energy. This SUPER CLEAN, cozy, comfortable space has everything you could need--full kitchen, microwave, coffee maker, exotic spices, a tub, a spacious work space, a roomy living room and a fabulous, QUIET, DARK bedroom with a super great bed. The apartment is in a fabulous, fun neighborhood. I give this apartment and this host my highest recommendation!
Our first AirBNB experience, and it was terrific. Aliya was a welcoming, engaging and accommodating host and her apt. has everything you need for a comfortable, quiet stay. Ideally located near subway, restaurants, bars, and in a safe, walkable area of the city. The apt. was clean and neat (Aliya also came to clean and change the sheets and towels midway through our week-long stay). She was always available for queries and concerns (not that we had any). Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed my stay at Aliya's apartment at the Upper West Side. The neighborhood is very nice and the apartment is just perfect: clean and very cozy.
The location is perfect, just between Central Park and Riverside Park.
I would really like to rent the apartment again another time!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
