Very clean and quiet 1 bdrm/1 bath w/ lg kitchen - 2nd fl walk-up in the heart of the upper east side. Only 3 blocks from 4/5/6, 4 blocks from Central Park and in the middle of great food & shopping - this stay will offer you a true NY experience!

The space

This is the most quiet apartment you will find in NYC! The building is a pre-war brownstone so you will get a true New York experience but in a very comfortable way. I keep the apartment very clean but please understand this is not new-construction. My unit caters to a visiting couple - there is a queen size bed and a twin air bed (or full size if needed) and extra bedding available. You will have towels, space to put away clothes and most all bathroom amenities (shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, curling iron, straightener, Iron & ironing board, etc.). The closest subway stop is the 86th street stop on the 4/5/6 with easy connections to Grand Central and Union Square. Penn Station requires an easy transfer on the "S" shuttle through Grand Central. There are also very local stops for the 86th street bus or the M18 bus.

Uber from La Guardia = $30
Uber from JFK = $50
Uber from Newark = $70

There are transport shuttles available from all airports into the city and that is the easiest & cheapest option for travel. These shuttles are called "NY Transporter". JFK and LaGuardia drop passengers at Grand Central and Newark drops passengers at NY Penn Station right near Times Square. You can easily transfer to subways from either station.

Guest access

Keys will be left for pick up at my laundry matt around the corner. It's called "The Matt III" ; address 1733 Second Ave. Its between E. 89th and E. 90th street - west side of the avenue, big blue sign and open 24 hours. My apartment is 1 block away. Ask for Ana or Rosie at the laundry matt... They run the place. Keys will be left per guest in an envelope with their specific name on it. Early check-in or late check out must be requested.

Interaction with guests

The apartment is a 1-bdrm so you will have the place completely to yourself. I often travel for work when the apartment is available but sometimes I am available locally to meet up.

Fresh towels & bathroom amenities will be included.

Alice went way beyond any expectations I had of a caring and grateful host. Not only was she kind and communicative to the point of being the first to text me good luck on the marathon day, she was also super flexible with checking in and out. Her apartment was super clean and filled with organic, healthy food and drink. The bed was a proper comfy double bed and the bathroom was laid out with towels and amenities like a proper hotel. I can't recommend her enough. The apartment is a one floor walk up in the middle of UES with the 4,5,6 subway within 5-10 min walking distance. I had a brilliant time, much due to the fact that I could sleep comfortably and arrange my own breakfast, snacks and occasional dinner. I can't recommend her enough.

The apartment was lovely, with a really comfortable bed and fully equipped kitchen. Alice was an excellent host, very friendly and accommodating. It was close to the subway which is essential in New York.

This is the perfect flat for 2 people, it was in a great location surrounded by amazing restaurants and some great bar, a few monuments walk from the subway that connects you with everywhere that you could want to go. As for the flat it's self, it was packed with everything that you could need, from coffee to straighteners, blenders to cable TV, my girlfriend and I had a lovely stay and would defiantly stay again! P.S. Alice the host was great at replying when you had questions or quires.

I knew that I would enjoy Alice's place, but found that the photos did not do it justice. It is even more welcoming and and well appointed and tastefully decorated than the photos reveal. I could not have been any more comfortable. The bed and bedding and quiet location at the back of the building make sleeping a dream. Alice has made sure that the kitchen has everything you could need And the ample space and counter top to made meal preparation easy. The safe and central location of the apartment was perfect for easy access on foot or by public transportation to anywhere in the city. I would highly recommend Alice's apartment to anyone looking for comfort and style at a reasonable price. I very much look forward to my next visit!

Alice place was super nice and beautiful. My fiancé and I were very comfortable and cozy. Alice was super responding and texting right away whenever I had a question. One of the best places I've ever stayed at with air bnb. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in new York City

Alice's apartment had everything we needed and more. My sisters and I came to NYC for a few days and it started with a winter storm. Flights were delayed, i thought my sisters may not get there but through it Alice was communicating with me so I was assured I could get the keys and check-in regardless of when I arrived. The apartment itself is very clean, cozy, and easy accesss to everything via walking or the subway. I highly reccomend this place!!

Alice was such a great host. The apartment was stocked with anything and everything you could possibly need. I appreciated the time she took to meet us in person and explain little quirks of the old apt. She even provided us with a guide for restaurants, bars, and shops. If she wasn't selling soon, I'd definitely rent again.
