About this listing
A cool, spacious, sunlit room at the heart of the Upper East Side, located just steps away from the subway. Walk to Madison Av, the MET, the Guggenheim and Central Park. Enjoy New York City surrounded by... well, just about everything you may desire!
**Please, do not send any booking request without consulting it with me first**
The space in our apartment is functional, comfortable, and quite cool. Most importantly, it works for all of us: we like to live close to the action, but require a place where we can return to and where we can unwind. It has all the amenities necesary: air conditioning, HD TV, a fully equipped kitchen, two full bathrooms, and etcetera. And it's fantastically located--just in our block there are 5 restaurants, 7 bars/pubs, 2 coffee shops, a mini-supermarket, and a bakery specialized in cakes and muffins. The bar tender downstairs know us--its like an ethylic version of "Friends" :P Seriously, its quite a nice place...
You'll have a/c during the summer (if you want it or need it) and heating during the winter; and, during fall and spring, the multicolored leaves and the flowers of NYC's, blooming just outside your window!
Guests receive one set of keys per room --for the apartment and building doors. They are free to come in and out as they please, we only ask be mindful of noise when arriving late. Guests have access to everything within the apartment: kitchen, common areas, and so on. More so, they also have access to everything New York has to offer!
Interaction with guests
My roommates and me travel a lot--hence, Airbnb has become not only a hobby, but a necessity. However, there is always at least one of us in charge of the place, making sure things go smoothly. In general, we enjoy meeting new people and sharing with them our knowledge of the city and its best kept secrets. And, when possible, we love to grab a drink or bite with our guests.
Other things to note
Note that reservations will not be accepted without some kind of preliminary contact with me. Please, send me a message and wait for a response before making any bookings. I will be pleased to answer promptly, set a time for us to chat, and, hopefully, being able to meet in person soon!
Most generally, the rules are commonsense, respect, and conviviality. More specifically:
1.Generally, the only people allowed inside the apartment is the guest (s) registered in the reservation. No visits are allowed without our explicit approval...
2.We have wood floors that get easily scratched. Please, do not drag the furniture and do not roll suitcases with wheels ( lift them instead).
3.We don´t use shoes inside the house at all to make the cleaning of the floor easier. There is space for you to leave a pair in the shoe rack by the entrance. Also, please note we don´t use home-shoes, nor sandals inside the bathroom --leave them outside the door when making use of it.
4.You are free to use the kitchen, as long as you follow the guidelines established on the "kitchen etiquette" instructions. Please, pay careful attention to the garbage separation instructions.
5.You are free to use the common areas to rest or read. We just ask you to keep them clean and bring your things back to the room.
6.Please, be mindful of others when you make use of the bathroom and clean after yourself. Pay special attention to the "bathroom etiquette".
11. No smoking is allowed inside the apartment.
1. Please, keep the room in good shape, as you found it. You are responsible for cleaning your own space and taking down your personal trash ( particularly if you go shopping!).
2.This room includes a small one-time cleaning fee for preparing the space before your arrival. In the case of long term stays (28 nights or more), you are required to cover the fee every month as a contribution for the cleaning appliances.
2. Please, do not eat in the room (remember, we are in New York and we don´t want to get unpleasant four-legged visitors). If you want to have a meal or a snack, use the common areas!
3. Please, be careful of not placing hot or cold recipients directly on top of the furniture in order to avoid leaving marks on it. Use coasters instead.
4. Do not move the furniture of place without consulting with us first.
5. Please, take care of our things as you would like someone else to take care of yours. If anything breaks or gets damaged by accident, talk to us about it so we can figure out a solution. Do not wait until we find out by ourselves.
Quite reasonable, isn't it?

I am a Latina, an explorer, and somewhat of an intellectual. I love dark chocolate, good books, and old movies. I am an avid and frequent traveler myself, so I know how important it is to find the right location i order to enjoy everything a place has to offer. In other words, I am in love with NYC and I want you to get to know it in exactly the same way I've come to love it!
Hope to hear from you soon!
