Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a wonderful stay at Elana's spacious 1 bedroom. Elana was very flexible and kept in touch to accommodate an extra guest and set of keys, as well as our early arrival and late departure. Her place is lovely, and in a great neighborhood less than a block from Central Park.

  • This was my first experience of Airbnb and thanks to Elana and her beautiful apartment it was a huge success. Made such a difference to have somewhere to stay with so much space. The place is exactly as described and photographed; lots of light during the day, quiet at night despite being in such a great location on a main street. Very comfortable bed and excellent shower, we both enjoyed relaxing on the window seat watching the world go by in between hitting the streets. There is a subway on the corner and a lot of nice restaurants and coffee shops on surrounding streets. We tried out Good Enough To Eat and El Centro which were both tasty. Elana wasn't around during our trip but key arrangements were simple and well communicated and she gave us some good tips about the area. Would definitely recommend!

  • The location of this sunny apartment is perfect, a half block west of Central Park. The furniture is spare but comfortable, particularly the window seat looking out on the 86th for morning coffee and the paper.
    Two possible drawbacks, 4th floor walk up. 57 steps, I counted. Good for your thighs if you take it slow. No TV. Very strange in this day and age, but we were out on the streets for most of this gorgeous w/e.

  • A friend and I stayed at Elana's for 3 nights. The flat looked exactly like the pictures - full of sunlight and clean. The location is fantastic - 5 min stroll to the Central Park and subway, 5 min stroll to Columbus Ave where there are plenty restaurants.
    Elana has been a generous and helpful hostess, leaving us with scones, biscuits and fruits for breakfast and a detailed list on where to find what.
    The downside of being on a main street is that it could be quite noisy in the morning. Also the flat is not air-conditioned - we were there early June, which was fine. I could imagine it can become a bit too hot later in the summer.
