About this listing
This is a private room in an apartment with one female (Swedish/American) also living there. The bedroom and bathroom are on the other side of the apartment so it is almost like private quarters. It's in a clean elevator (no doorman) building on 102nd St, right off Broadway, close to subway, two parks nearby.
The bedroom has a sensational queen sized bed with memory foam for extra comfort, and high quality linens. Towels and soap provided. Two windows, closet, small desk, drawers, door that closes fully, adjacent bathroom. (Fast, high end) Wifi in whole apartment. The apartment is a spacious one bedroom, on top floor of 7 story elevator building, so lots of light. Living room, eat in kitchen, TV/Cable, work desk. It is located in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side, three blocks from Central Park and two blocks from Riverside Park. Restaurants, stores, cafes, all abundant in the neighborhood. 24/7 supermarket one block away and the subway is also one block away. (The 103rd St stop on the #1 line.)
Also living in the apartment, one female, non smoker, quiet, clean and not home much. My cat Jack is here sometimes, sometimes with my sister upstate. He stays with me in the living room, curtained off. He is never ever in the guest bedroom.
Also, high quality air filters in the apartment.
Laundromat is 2 blocks away.
Instead of breakfast, I provide guests with fruit, nuts and other snacks, as well as filtered water in the room. I am happy to provide coffee or tea as well, upon request.
The cleaning fee is $20. No deposit.
Appropriate for: One person or two who can share bed.
The whole apartment but mainly, bedroom, bathroom, hall, kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
I give them any help they need but try to give them space and leave them in peace.
Everything! Parks, cafes, restaurants, shops...
The subway (#1 train) stops one block from my apartment.The stop is the 103rd st/Broadway stop.
All is well. Just one window without a screen i don't want you to open, in the bedroom.
Celia's place is absolutely charming and located in a wonderful part of New York. I love a real NYC city experience and tend to shy away from traditional tourist spots. The Upper West side is perfect for that experience.
The train is right there and the neighborhood quiets somewhat in the evening. There are also many restaurants and coffee shops around the area.
Celia is a lovely and accomodating hostess! I will definitely stay at her place again!
I plan on staying at Celia's every time I'm in NYC! She is a warm, friendly, and caring. She was flexible about letting us into the apartment to stash our things, even though we arrived before the check in time. She was very responsive and made great recommendations about where to get take out/delivery. She also gave us a lot of privacy to enjoy the apartment and city on our own. The apartment is just as great as Celia. The bathroom and bedrooms are clean and cozy and spacious (compared to lower east side apartments). The kitties are very sweet. The location is a block away from the 103 st station (1 line). The 96 st station (1,2,3 lines, especially when combined with buses running uptown and downtown on B'way) and 103 (B and C lines) are also convenient.
Great location for exploring the city! Very near to the Subway and restaurants, so going Uptown or Downtown is a matter of minutes. Also the bus stops around the corner. On Broadway are plenty of places to eat.
The room itself is very spacious and light. Airconditioning keeps it cool. We did not eat breakfast in the appartement, but on Broadway.
As we spent every day exploring the city, we did not see Celia much. When we did see her, she was very nice and accomodating. She gave us some good tips on restaurants. The two cats were very friendly and came to greet us after a few days.
This accommodation is exactly as described: a large and quiet bedroom in Upper West NYC. Plus, the bedroom is very cozy, with nice furniture. As to the location, the apartment building is in a very nice-looking and safe part of town. The area is quiet yet at the same time it is full of restaurants and shops. The underground is steps away, so that one may easily move around NYC using this apartment as a base. To top it all, our host, Celia, was such a fantastic host ! My daughter and I felt like at home! Very good value for the money and highly recommended.
I had such a wonderful stay with Celia! The room is spacious and so charming, and I felt at home right away. The location can't be beat, on the Upper West Side and only a block from the subway. Celia is such a great hostess -- you'll hardly know she's there, but you will also love chatting with her whenever you cross paths. Her two cats Jack and Lewis make for great company as well. :) I can't wait to come back to New York so I can stay there again!
Celia is a superb host! She is a lovely person who goes out of her way to make you feel at home. Very helpful with directions, questions about the area, etc. Nice benefit of coffee and fruit and nut snacks in the mornings. Highly recommend her.
What a great place! We really enjoyed our stay. Clean, spacious and so comfortable. The location was perfect and Celia was the best hostess giving us plenty of privacy and making us feel at home. Hope to stay there on my next trip to NY
