Private room- Simple, Clean, Comfy

Apartment - Private room · Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10027, United States

The Space

This is a simple and clean private room in a two bedroom apartment in a third floor walk-up. Your room has a full-size bed with clean sheets, clean towels, air conditioning (during the summer), heating (during the winter), a closet to hang your clothes, and plenty of extra space. The door on your room can also be locked with a key.

You will be sharing the living space, kitchen, and bathroom with the Host (me!). The living space offers a comfortable space to crash after your day of touring NYC. There is Wi-Fi available, a TV which has basic channels (CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC), and other entertainment items (games, cards, PS3, blu-rays). The kitchen is available for you to use and includes a microwave and coffee maker. I have an iron and an ironing board should you need. And the bathroom is always clean and fully stocked with the essentials (soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc).

A little about me, I am a recent graduate of Columbia University and a startup owner. I have been living in NYC for quite a few years and can help with suggestions of places to go. I keep a fairly regular work schedule, so most of the day I will be out.

The apartment is located on a main street (Amsterdam Ave, between 131st and 133rd) that is almost always active. There are several quick food options right downstairs (bakery, deli, mexican, chinese), and many other good options several blocks away (italian, japanese, BBQ, american). Your bedroom faces the back of the building, so it is super quiet and private.

There are three bus lines (M11, M100, M101) running right to the front of the building and 5 subway lines (1, A express, C, B, D express) nearby. The 1-train on 125th and Broadway is about a 5-7 minute walk away (0.3 mile, or 0.5 km). The A, B, C, and D trains are about a 7-10 minute walk away (0.5 mile, or 0.75 km). Of course I can always help point you in the right direction for most efficient travel to all other spots in the city.

Check-in is set for 4:00pm, and check-out is set for 11:00am. These times are very flexible and will depend on my schedule for the day and will need to be coordinated based on whether I have immediately overlapping guests. If you reserve, we will coordinate times about a week before your arrival.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Vincent was a great host. If you need some privacy, you won't notice him. If you need to talk or to ask for question about museum, subways lines etc... he'll be there for you, very friendly and helpful.
    The room is clean, much bigger than some hotel rooms. The place is very warm, so you're not going to be cold.
    The subway is about 10 min walking, but you should know that before booking at his place.
    Honestly he was perfect for us, thanks you again.

  • Vincent was a perfect host! Very pleasant, ready to help at any time! The stay was very nice, the apartment is located west Harlem, easily accessible by two subways, and close to the famous Appollo Theater :) there is a big fairway 2 blocks away and a bakery downstairs the flat. The apartment is clean and nice, and the room´s big!
    I totally recommand to stay at Vincent's for a trip in NYC :)

  • Vincent is very helpful and hospitable. He creates a calming and restoring atmosphere. The room is large and clean. You are welcome to use the kitchen and all the stuff. You can ask for an advice or help. And his presence is almost insensible.

  • Vincent is a really good host, easy going and everything he says about the house it's true. He always helped me out when i needed with printing, finding locations or even any other place that he never heard before.
    I would really advice people to stay in his house , and would definitely stay in his house once again if i'll go the NYC again.

  • Ce séjour chez Vincent s'est trés bien passé, nous avons été très bien acceuilli et très bien reçu.
    Tout le nécessaire était à disposition.
    Vincent a pris du temps pour nous faire part de bon plan sur New-York.
    Il nous a aussi très bien expliqué comment fonctionnait les transports en commun et les petites choses essentielle.
    Un très grand merci pour l'acceuil et le confort de l'appartement.
