Alex's home is a wonderful oasis of calm in the centre of Manhattan that we felt so lucky to have found. Alex also made us so welcome - was in touch early on to help organise our trip and checked in to make sure we were fine. We could not have been made more welcome - amazing list of top tips for the area from local cafes, culture, museums.... lovely comfortable bed, fluffy towels. Gorgeous area - 2 mins from the park, 2 mins from great restaurants, lovely vibe. Thanks for having us!
I really dont know what to say and how to express my feeling.
To talk about different people you need different words however i can not find such words to express such feeling. It was only 2 days but we felt that we were one family. Every thing was perfect the house, the host and the kind hospitality we were welcomed with till the last moment.
We had an excellent stay at the Zen Studio. Alex was a wonderful host from start to finish. She had very good communication and had quick responses. She even provided us with very helpful information about our trip to NYC of places to eat, play, site-see, etc. The apartment was exactly as described though words do not do it justice for how peaceful and relaxing of a home it is. After a long day out and about, it was very nice to come back to the very comfortable apartment. It is in an excellent location with a short 1-2 block walks to two metro stations and conveniently located near great places to eat. The proximity to Central Park is also a highlight, as we were able to do several morning trips here. I would definitely love to stay here again on a future trip to NYC.
The reservation was canceled 17 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Alex was an excellent host, and I couldn't have been happier with my stay. The apartment is beautiful, airy, and quiet. I loved how it was decorated, and it was a welcome retreat at the end of the day. I was thrilled with the location, which was about a block and a half from Central Park, and a block and a half from three different subway lines. I even found it an easy walk to the Upper East Side through the park.
The apartment was clean, and the bed and bedding were very comfortable. Alex is a friendly and prompt communicator, and she even left me a list of nearby amenities (groceries, laundries, coffee shops, even sushi) that was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
Nous avons passé un super séjour dans cet appartement.
L'accueil d'Alex était parfait, très chaleureuse et soucieuse que notre séjour chez elle se passe bien. Elle nous a laissé plein d'informations pratiques sur New York et ce qu'on pouvait trouver autours de chez elle. Elle a pris soin de nous demander en milieu de séjour si tout se passait bien et qu'elle restait disponible si on avait des questions.
En ce qui concerne l'appartement, il est idéalement situé, entre deux lignes de métro qui distribuent très bien Manhattan, tout proche de Central Park, très calme et c'est un luxe à New York! Il y a des restaurants tout autours et de quoi faire ses courses facilement. Les photos correspondent très bien à la réalité, il est très lumineux ce qui est vraiment agréable.
Bref si je devais retourner à New York il est certain que je demanderai a nouveau ce logement!
I stayed in Alex's apartment for 8 nights in the week between April and May 2014. The place is exactly like portrayed in the pictures and in her description, perfectly clean, warm and quiet. The location is ideal for visiting Manhattan, the red and blue/orange subway lines and a bus that brings you to the other side of Central Park are 5-7 minutes away: you can get anywhere in the heart of Manhattan in 20-25 minutes, at most. The possibility of being in the middle of Central Park in 5 minutes and enjoying a walk in the sun is priceless too.
But what really stands out about Alex and her place is that, from the moment you step in, you will feel her CARE for...everything: all the little details will make you feel like a respected host and will help you feel like respecting her hospitality.
If anybody will ever ask me for an advice of where to stay in NY, I will tell them to make sure to check if Alex's place is available!
Despite the absence of Alex, everything was perfectly organized for our arrival.
(someone was there to greet us very detailed explanatory note on the apartment and the area, water bottle and breakfast provided).
The apartment is very clean, very comfortable, very functional, very well heated and very zen. Practical bathroom (towels, shower gel and soap provided).
We highly recommend it.
The apartment is close to metro lines 1, 2, 3 (about 5 minutes) and lines B, C, (about 8 minutes).
The neighborhood is very quiet and close to Central Park.

This apartment is a quiet oasis in this exciting city. You can never expect a better location: upper west side, quiet street, 1 or 2 blocks walk to central park and subways, many great restaurants and organic food markets. The apartment is very well-designed and extremely clean. The bed is large and VERY comfortable. What make this apartment more fantastic is the host. Alex is one of the most warm hearted person I've ever seen. Whether you've been to NYC before, Alex will take care of you from beginning to the end. Living there is a unique experience for us. It's feels like our home in this city.
