The Space

Looking for a true authentic New York City visit? Many travelers say the best way to experience your destination is to embed yourself among the locals and you'll experience your destination unlike no other. What better way to do all the touristic things in New York and experience New York like a New Yorker than to experience it with my parents as your hosts. We're listing my parents extra bedroom, the bedroom where I grew up in all my life, for your New York City visit. I grew up in the uptown Manhattan neighborhood of Hudson Heights, a sub-neighborhood of Washington Heights. You'll get a glimpse of what life was like for a real New Yorker growing up in Uptown Manhattan.

The room has a total of three (3) twin size beds which sleeps up to three adults comfortably.

The room is perfect for those who want to have a place in Manhattan, get the most our of their New York City visit, and want a comfortable place to rest their head after a day of touring New York City.

Guest Access

For your entertainment the room has a flat screen T.V. with cable and free WiFi.

Interaction with Guests

Our parents love getting to know a bit about you and ensure you get the most out of your New York City visit. We always welcome any questions and love providing suggestions on things to do.

The Neighborhood

The Manhattan neighborhood of Hudson Heights, a sub-neighborhood of Washington Heights is a vibrant, cultural, and trendy Manhattan neighborhood filled with many great restaurants, Columbia University Medical Students, and working families. There are many great affordable restaurants near by where you can have a taste of the worlds best foods. many options include Latin Cuisine, French Bistro, Japanese, Italian, Brazilian, Asian Fusion, Mexican, you name it New York City has it. Don't forget to stop in the local Irish pub Coogans for great bar food and drinks. And for those returning from enjoying New York City nightlife, have an early morning meal before bed at my favorite latin restaurant "Malecon".

Getting around

The room is perfectly located half a block from the train station which can get you to Midtown Manhattan and Times Square in as fast as 18 minutes on the train.

The apartment is located on the second floor, so there will be steps you’ll have to climb.

  • I had a wonderful stay in this apartment! The hosts are very nice and helpful. They will answer all of your questions and they made us feel really comfortable and welcoming in their home. The bedroom and bathroom were very comfortable and clean. The subway is 5 min from the apartment and will take you directly in 20 minutes to Manhattan. I would definitely recommend to stay here!!! Great place to stay while experiencing NYC!

  • The room was comfortable for two. The appart was near the subway (5 minutes walking for the A subway, 175 street.)
    The hosts are friendly.
    We will go there if we come back to NYC.

  • Had a very good stay here. Definitely recommend. The location is good, only 20 minutes from centre of Manhattan by subway and close to a couple of subway lines. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful and make the stay very pleasant. Just be aware there are steps to the building and then another flight of steps up to the apartment, so if you have a heavy suitcase, need to take that into account.

  • Our first experience of airbnb and it was even better than we had hoped. We loved the neighbourhood and it was very quick and easy on the subway to go more downtown. Our hosts were welcoming, kind and helpful when we had wet things or couldn't get our cell phones to work.

  • Carla's parent's Cesar and Beatrice were wonderful hosts. The apartment was clean and they were were hospitable. My mum was sick and we needed hot water, on the first day to make a hot drink for my mum, which Beatrice was so gracious to prepare for us. What really moved us, was that Beatrice would check on us both day and night if we needed more hot water. I sincerely appreciate that they cared about their guests. I appreciate their hospitality and would recommend them to other guests.

  • We arrived quite late at night, Ceasar and Beatrice received us very kindly showing us the room. The communication with Christian worked out very well trough email before. Since we had a tight schedule we didn`t have so much time for a chat. But when we had questions they always gave us advice. The bathroom was close to our room, which was nice and when we needed t it was always free.

  • Our guests were really nice to both me and my friend. Upon our arrival (we arrived at 8:30AM), they greeted us nicely and let us leave our bags before our initial check-in, thus letting us explore NY. The room was really nice and perfect for the two of us. Throughout our stay, they told us where to go and how to get around NY. What's best is how the place is close to the subway, which makes our trips to our destinations in a snap. I really recommend staying here for future guests going to NY. Great guests and location.

  • It is really a wonderful place to stay! Only better than described! The hosts are very welcome and they are always ready to help you out when you have any question about the city. The room is as warm as home, and very quiet all day. Every night when I got back, I felt extremely happy and secure. The beds are also very comfortable to sleep in, and the block is too easy to reach, especially via express A line subway. I would definitely live here again if I go to NYC in the future!

  • OMG!! Had an amazing time in New York and I have to admit that it had a lot to do with where I stayed. My mom, daughter and I felt right at home. This room was quaint and comfy! The hosts? Absolute sweethearts! The train station was so close that we even took it all the way to the airport with no problem on our last day! The stay here was absolutely worth it. When I return to New York, definitely will stay there again! Thank you for helping to make our first time in the Big Apple a wonderful experience. XOXO

  • We had a great stay at the place of Christian and Carla - or actually their parents. The room was similar to the preview and the beds were very comfortable. The locations is good as well, the subway station is just around the corner. We definitely would recommend it!!!
