The Space

If the dates are no longer available for your visit please see my new listing:

Enjoy staying in this 1 bedroom apartment in the hottest location in midtown. The apartment was recently renovated and no detail has been spared from the imported Italian furniture, 46 inch plasma tv, and custom art work. The apartment is located on the 2nd floor facing south overlooking a tree lined court yard. It is sun filled and absolutely silent. The emphasis on this apartment is new, luxurious hotel quality, in the best location in midtown. Everything for a comfortable stay has been provided including luxurious linens and towels, bathing products in the bathroom, wifi, internet, cable, phone for local calling, iron, hair dryer, and air conditioning in each room during the summer. There is a queen size temperpedic mattress in the bedroom and a designer memory foam style sofa coach which folds out to be another queen size bed in the living room (this is not a futon, and is equally as comfortable as the bed in the bedroom) The location of the apartment is at the hottest cross street in midtown. Everything is right outside your front door including Times Square, Broadway, Central Park, restaurants, grocery stores, cafes, and pharmacies. The subway is 1 block away. (Early check in and late check out possible to maximize your visit)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Dan was lovely; very helpful and sweet to my mother (who was the guest (email hidden)uldn't have been more pleased with the entire process...

  • Staying at this cozy apartment added to our wonderful New York experience. Our trips to Manhattan always consist of several Broadway shows and lots of walking--to the theatres, Central Park, the High Line and various eateries. This central location was perfect for all of our adventures, close to the hustle and bustle and yet on a quiet street. The accommodations were clean and well appointed with all the extras one would expect at a hotel, such as hairdryer, coffee maker and extra towels. The kitchen had all the necessities, the bed was comfortable, the shower strong and the water hot, and the living area was very adequate for our needs. This was our first chance to use Airbnb and it could not have been more positive. Dan (email hidden) and provided guidance and suggestions based on our interests, adding to our good times. He is very accommodating to special requests. We will be back and highly recommend this apartment and host to anyone looking for more space at a reasonable price (for NYC) than you will find in most more expensive hotel rooms.

  • My husband & I stayed for 4 nights at Dan's place. It was everything promised - a very central location, but away from noise, an extremely well equipped apartment and a helpful and welcoming host. His dinner recommendations were particularly good! Dan also kindly accommodated us with a late check out, as our flight wasn't until the evening. We would definitely stay there again.

  • Dan (email hidden)! Once I made my reservation he called me shortly afterto welcome us, give helpful tips and he graciously answered all my questions. I would not have known to pre-order theater tickets online if he had not mentioned this and as a result got excellent seats in advance for "Kinky Boots" (which Dan recommended and was beyond fabulous!)
    The apartment was clean, well located and very quiet; three very important features!!! We loved the cozy quiet bedroom, the well-equiped kitchen, soptless bathroom, and having tea in the morning on a sunny table (which, being a back apartment, is in front of a window overlooking the tree in the courtyard-- while the birds sang for us!)
    I had a few questions during our 5 day stay such as how to work the stove and the TV, etc. Dan was always immediately available, quickly responded and resolved my issue, and even came by the apartment to show us how to work the TV!
    The apartment was immaculate and Dan had thought to provide so many extras: pots, pans and dishes, of course, but also a hair dryer, bagel toaster, extra towels, deluxe coffee maker, ironing board and iron, water filter pitcher, tea bags and coffee, coffee filters, napkins and paper towels!
    We loved how we could walk out our door any time of day or night, be on a quiet tree lined street, then and go a few blocks either direction to the theater district, Central park, or walk down the serene Pier at night and see the sunset and the boats all lit up on the river--each destination only about 7 blocks in different directions!!!
    And the subway just a block away easily connected with anywhere in the city, and cabs always waiting at the corner--Just a fabulous location!!!
    I found we could take a train then a bus and be at a beautiful beach (Jacob Riss beach, (highly recommend) in an hour, so we swam, sunbathed and collected shells for a half a day in the middle of our stay, a nice respite from the city for a morning :)
    I highly recommend Dan and his lovely little flat, and I could not have been more pleased with everything. Could not think of one negative thing to say about our NYC experience-- because we were so well cared for and got to live like locals thanks to Dan! (Definitely 5 stars, and would give 6 stars if I could!)

  • Great apartment and perfect location in New York, this was the first time we used Airbnb and Dan has made ​​us realize that there is no need to book any more hotells in New York :-)
    We got great tips and also help with reservations for restaurants from Dan. We walked a lot and it felt like most of what we wanted to see was within 10-15 minutes distance, the area around Hell's Kitchen was very cozy and felt safe to walk in the evenings. We will definitely book with Dan next time we come back to the Big Apple. Thanks again Dan

  • We had a fantastic (email hidden)! He was warm and welcoming. He even offered to give is tips on things to do while we were there and checked in on midway through our stay. Communication was easy. We loved the location and the inside of the apartment was both stylish and super clean. My mom was also very excited about the comfy mattress! Thanks for everything Dan! We hope to be back soon and will certainly stay here again.

  • The host was very aggressive in interrogating us when we first arrived. We had been traveling all morning and wanted to settle in before heading to a wedding. He told us that he had someone coming early the next morning, and kept asking what we were planning for the next day. I told him we were thinking that a noon check out should be decent, but this translated into him allowing the other guests to enter the apartment and drop off their luggage. I told him that if we wanted to share a place with someone else, we would have stayed elsewhere. This led to him telling us we needed to check out by 10:30 AM. I was really unhappy by the way he treated the situation, and was surprised to learn new details upon my arrival. For this reason I wouldn't book again with Dan.

    Response from New York:

    I am sorry Alex did not enjoy her experience staying 1 night in my apartment. At the time of reservation I asked her to provide me with both arrival and departure information so I could coordinate with the arriving guests. Alex did not indicate any departure information at all and this is why I was asking her about plans the next day when she arrived so I could coordinate with the arriving guests. Check out time is 10:30am but if someone wants to stay longer I always try to accommodate them as I tried with Alex. For all future guests interested in staying with me make sure to include your arrival and departure information before you arrive so I can make sure I cancan accommodate you with a late check out as I tried with Alex. Thanks again for your comments Alex, it helps me do a better job!!!!!!

  • Great location; nice, well-kept apartment just right for two. Dan was extremely welcoming, and immediately helpful with a minor problem with the front door to the buidling. We would certainly stay there again.
