The best part about this property is the lovely owners; they are both fantastic and genuine. However, plan accordingly. Because this property is best enjoyed by easy-going folks not bothered walking up a big hill from the subway followed by three flights of stairs, using stained towels, or by the strong skunk smell continually wafting up through the vent, from the chain-smoking neighbors downstairs.

friendly hosts
for me, it was a good hide away. I will come back.. small, but sufficient

5/5 Excellent

Our NY adventure!
The property is just perfect. The area (Spanish Harlem) so energizing! We were uptown & had to do a lot of travel by subway which was a way to get to know many parts of NY. Eddie & Vlad were kind hosts. We were a little door lock challenged but they took it in stride! They had answers to all our questions & posted additional info within the apartment. The other visitors that we met at the apartment were just as friendly! Definitely would book here again.

4/5 Good

Good stay
We had an amazing visit to NY. So much to see and do. Our stay with Eddie and Vlad was great fun. The place was clean and felt safe (it was third floor so a bit of a hike with a suitcase). The hosts were friendly and shared lots of interesting information.
