Ambika was very easy to communicate with leading up to the trip. The keys to the apartment arrived by mail, and the apartment was in pristine condition when I arrived. The apartment is only about 4 blocks from the 79th Street subway station, very convenient.

This is a tiny apartment in a lovely quiet neighborhood. It is a bit dark especially after I used my hairdryer in the living room and blew a fuse.( use it in the bathroom!) I think it could have been a little cleaner and the bicycle in the bedroom made it difficult to negotiate the room. Otherwise, it was comfortable and safe.
I stayed at Ambikas apartment in the upper west side of NYC on 3/23/13. She mailed her keys to my home address and made sure I got them on time which was great. Upon arriving the apartment was clean and had everything we needed including fresh linens and towels. Ambika was very easy to communicate with and very accommodating, letting us stay as late as 7pm on Sunday which gave us a whole extra day to see the city. Overall a very nice stay!
I stayed at Ambika's apartment for five nights, from Oct 10th-15th, 2012.
The place looked exactly like it did from the pictures. She was waiting for us at the apartment with 2 sets of keys. She was extremely friendly and told us everything we needed to know. The place was clean, with plenty of sheets and towels for our use. This place was great for what we needed, good location, and again (most importantly), clean!
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this to anyone looking for a small but comfortable place on the upper west side!

I had a very pleasant stay at Ambika's apartment. She was flexible about my arrival time and helpful with recommending local restaurants, shops and walks. The apartment was comfortable and in a nice neighborhood.

I had a great stay at Ambikas apartment and in NYC and would definitely consider staying here again when I come back to NY. The apartment was exactly as described and as in the pictures.
Making contact with Ambika was very easy as she promptly responded to any requests (which, based on my experience with other potential hosts in NY is not a given) and all communication from the first contact to meeting with Ambika went very smooth.
The apartment is conveniently located and really quiet - I was able to sleep with open windows which is certainly not a given in New York. Public transport, plenty of restaurants and grocery stores are all well within walking distance and relaxing Riverside Park is just down the street.
So, overall a very positive experience and I can recommend staying at Amibkas apartment when you come to NY.
Ambika was a wonderful flexible host, our flights left late and she allowed us to leave our luggage till late on the last day of our stay! Her place was cute and cozy. It was everything we expected. The apartment was perfect for our stay. It was clean, and the perfect size with a separate bedroom and incredibly quiet and peaceful. The location is close to Zabars and transportation. Recommend checking out Zabars early in your stay -- incredible food !!
Ambika and friend stayed several nights in my studio apartment. They left the apartment clean and I would welcome them back.
Ambika is a great person. I have stayed at her apartment a couple of times. She is very tidy and clean. Apartment is very cozy and I had a great time there every time I stayed. She is also very thoughtful about arranging everything regarding the stay of her guests, from giving out keys/ arranging the meeting etc. She is a very amiable and a fun person to hang out with. Very genuine! I would recommend staying at her place anytime!
Ambika's apartment is situated in an ideal location which is just a couple of blocks from the subway. The neighborhood is really beautiful, there are plenty of lovely cafes and restaurants, shops and places to visit. It is just a short walk to central park and riverside park. Her apartment is clean and cozy. I recommend her apartment to anyone.
