The Space

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!!

LIVE LIKE A NEW YORKER!

NOTE: More than 4 people will be rather tight. it will involve squeezing in air beds!

This is a PRIVATE studio apartment on 2nd Ave and 76th St. This location I top notch! It's right in the heart of Manhattans Upper East Side. The apartment itself is clean and basic. It has a double bed and a double sofa bed, air conditioned, linens, dishes, pots, pans, refrigerator, microwave, oven/cooking stove, wifi, NO TV though.

It's close to the museums, Central Park, famous shops, and metro/subway which are all within 5-10 minute walks. Tons of reasonably priced bars and restaurants around with lots of diverse choice.

I should add that the apartment is 1 level up and there is no elevator. The apartment is probably most well suited for up to 4 people, either a family or 2 couples who really just want a simple, clean, affordable place in an AWESOME location. I have always been a budget minded traveler and I really strive to make the place affordable so budget minded travelers can see this great city and get to stay in a really TOP LOCATION for a reasonable price. I can also provide you with an extra air matress if needed.

And whether you stay in the apartment or not...enjoy the energy that is NYC!

UPDATE: I really appreciate the positive feedback. Reading most of my reviews one will notice some common themes, namely:

Good Price
Clean
Basic
No TV

That pretty much describes the place. It's no frills! My goal is to provide a clean apartment in a TOP location. For a group of 4-6 people, that means you get your own apartment in one of the best NYC neighborhoods for the price of a hostel in Brooklyn. Its for this reason I try to keep the costs down so I can keep the cost low for the guests.

My MAIN priority is really cleanliness, and my cleaning lady does a VERY thorough job.
All kinds of goods and services are very expensive in NYC. Its for this reason I ask that people not use the extra linens as this messes up my cleaning lady's karma and adds to the expense.

  • David cumplió con todo lo pactado: dejamos las valijas a una cuadra como acordó ( dado que llegábamos antes de la hora de check in ), el departamento estaba impecable, la heladera y la despensa tenían todo lo necesario para hacer una merienda ( azúcar, sal, leche, café, servilletas, aceite, etc. ). En el baño jabón, papel, shampú, dentífrico, máquinas de afeitar. El lavavajilla funcionó perfecto, había jabón en polvo. En fin, todos detalles de buen anfitrión que hicieron fácil la adaptación a la gran manzana.
    La calefacción, pese a las bajísimas temperaturas exteriores, era terrible, buenísima !!. Para quienes elijan el Upper East, barrio elegante como pocos, el apartamento de David es una excelente opción: está a tres cuadras del subterráneo. Si volviésemos a NYC - espero sea el año que viene - sin dudas lo haríamos al mismo lugar.

  • quartier trés sympa avec beaucoup de choses à proximité (supermarché, starbuck, sushis, bagel,métro ...)
    le pub en bas est trés sympa avec une bonne ambiance
    david est toujours disponible en cas de problèmes aucun soucis avec l'appart

    le seul point négatif est les poubelles dans l'entrée

  • Soggiorno molto positivo, appartamento pulito e funzionale

    March 2014
  • The apartment is located in a good area, close to metro, cafes, shops. The apartment is comfortable, equipped with kitchenware, coffee mashine. David always connected, you can ask any question.

  • Séjour un peu décevant.
    Nous sommes arrivés après l'heure indiqué et l'appartement n'était toujours pas prêt et propre. Nous avons était obligé de repartir afin que la femme de ménage passe. Pas top après un long voyage.
    Nous avons par la suite trouvé l'appartement pas super bien entretenu.
    Surtout dans la salle de bain avec une bouche d'aération très salle (beaucoup de poussière). La peinture se décollant à certains endroits et une baignoire assez abimé.
    Dans la pièce à vivre, la cuisinière était hyper sale nous avons du repasser un coup dessus.
    Et de la moquette sous les lits ce qui n'est pas super hygiénique et très allergène.
    Appartement situé au dessus d'un bar très animé le soir et très tard. Du bruit jusqu'à 3h du matin.
    Sinon les lits étaient très confortables et l'appartement est très bien situé (2 blocks d'une ligne de métro traversant Manhattan).
    Très bien pour ne faire que dormir. Mais un peu cher sur le tarif pour ce que c'est.

  • David's apartment is great. In a really good location and it has everything you need. David is responsive and helpful.Recommended.

    February 2014
  • The apartment was nice and spacey for the two of us, and well located, next to the subway and the Central Park. It was warm and comfortable. We didn't have noise problems with the bar downstairs.
    The big problem unresolved was the garbage of the others apartments in the building that was accumulated in the door of our apartment, creating a terrible bad odor all the day, that sometime get into the apartment.
    When we open the door, or when we return from outside, we have to move or jump the garbage bags. David has to resolve this, even he said that.
    Also the fact that the cleaning people came around 5 or 6 times during our stay to get towels for the other apartments even we were on the place or not, because the app was the storage of the other rental places.
    And that the internet wi fi was very bad: was gone for hours during the day or too slow, and in all of the 15 days of our stay worked interrupted.

    January 2014
  • Studio fonctionnel et propre, conformément à l'annonce.
    Nous étions 2 adultes+3 enfants (15, 11 et 9 ans) du 26 déc 2013 au 03 jan 2014.
    points négatifs :
    - très bruyant (2 bars en dessous dont 1 karakoé ouvert tard)
    - une fenêtre mal isolée à cause de l'appareil air conditionné encastré, nous l'avons calfeutrée avec coussins et plaids
    - la présence d'une poubelle collective sur le pallier, en face de la porte peut dérouter !
    - salle de bain riquiqui
    points positifs :
    - proche du métro 77thst , du bus M15 et des commerces (Cristedes à 10 mètres ! mais préférez D'agostino sur Lex et 76st moins cher et plus de choix)
    - chauffage et appareils electroménagers fonctionnent bien !
    - salle de bains riquiqui mais la douche est ok et serviettes en nombre
    - 1 lit 2 places, 1 canapé IKEA 2 places et un matelas gonflable 2 places ok
    - wifi ok
    - David : tout le temps connecté à son mail, il a réagi rapidement pour faire réparer un problème de serrure et nous fournir une chaise en plus. Il a été d'accord pour différer notre check-out à 13h30 vs 12h00 et nous a proposé un service de gardiennage de bagages gratuit pour profiter de notre dernière journée (j'avais déjà plannifié le storage luggage près de Port Authority plus près du bus pour l'aéroport). Enfin, suite tempête de neige sur NY, il nous a proposé son aide en cas de retard d'avion.
    C'est appréciable de savoir qu'il y a un service après vente et qu'on n'est pas en face d'un loueur impersonnel.
