About This Listing
This is a charming little studio apartment with a private entrance in the capital city of New York. The furnished studio apartment consists of a main room with reading chair and desk, a fully stocked kitchen with dining area and a full bathroom.
We have a twin size real mattress stored under the main full size bed that can be pulled out and used for children.
Our location is just a few houses away from Washington Park. We are walking distance to SUNY Albany Downtown Campus, Rockefeller Institute of Government & College of Saint Rose (5 minutes); Albany Medical College, Albany College of Pharmacy & Albany Law School (15 minutes); Center Square, Empire Plaza and all the state government offices (20 minutes).
We are close to shops, restaurants, and all major bus lines.
The kitchen has basic utensils, dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster oven, stove/oven, fridge.
Free wireless internet.
No pets and no smoking in the studio or on the porch.
Parking is on the street. Sometimes if you arrive late at night you might have to park a block away.
Washer/dryer available upon request for longer stays.
The Park has several tennis courts so bring your rackets or borrow ours!
We live in the building with our (quiet) four year old and can help out with any questions that might arise.
We are very flexible on the check-in time, but we prefer it to be before 10pm!
Megan was kind and welcome throughout my entire stay. The place was clean and cozy. I would love to stay at Megan's place if I go back to Albany.
Meagan and his family are very friendly, the house is very clean, and it is near a park, it is very beautiful, we can walk to the park in 2 minutes. I like the house and Albany very much!
My whole experience was dreamy. The studio was a perfect respite and it was a treat to have a little stock of breakfast foods for the morning. Megan was friendly and responsive. And the location is awesome. I took and evening walk and a morning walk around the lake; it's a lovely neighborhood and nearby park. Biggest bonus is the rocking chairs on the beautiful front porch. Thanks Megan!
Megan's place was perfect for us on our stopover. It was very easy to get to her place, and it's located just across from the beautiful park. Megan made herself available and left us a sheet with plenty of handy info. There were some basics in the fridge, which was appreciated. Maybe we will see you another time! :)
Megan was a great host and the apartment was exactly as advertised. My schedule prevented me from meeting her in person, so I really appreciated that she kept in touch by e-mail and text to let me know how to check in and out at my own convenience. Apartment was very clean and had a fully-equipped kitchen. Megan even left some breakfast food (eggs, OJ, milk, butter) so I could cook breakfast, along with a detailed map and list of nearby restaurants and coffee shops.
The apartment is conveniently located to downtown shops, restaurants and offices, and is right on the edge of Washington Park, the main public park in Albany. The only possible drawbacks are that it doesn't have AC or a TV, so be aware if those are important to you. But if not, the place is a perfect downtown Albany getaway for one or two people and the host is wonderful.
What a charming spot on a lovely block next to a gorgeous park, just about a 15-minute walk from the Capitol! The room was comfortable and neat, and I had everything I needed. Thank you so much for making everything so easy.
Our trip was great. The host left a list of things to do and suggestions to eat along with a map. We had a great time and the host family was welcoming. We enjoyed our time in Albany.
About the Host, Megan
