I stayed with Valerie for an extended period of time during a summer internship in the city, and had a wonderful stay! At first I was weary of doing an extended stay at an air bnb, but Valerie is a great, considerate host/person to live with! We both ran in our own schedules so we didn't cross paths constantly, but every interaction with Valerie was very nice. The room is a nice size, comfortable and private, and the apartment itself is the perfect size and has everything you need. The location is great, too! Very close to both the Q and the 6 trains, so traveling around the city was easy, and Central Park is just a walk away. I highly recommend staying with Valerie if you have the chance!

I stayed here for 4 weeks in August while on a university placement at Weill Cornell Medical College and had a great stay. Pros: -Large, clean room (bigger than it looks in the photo) with lots of wardrobe (aka closet) space -Safe neighbourhood, and very peaceful at night too, I got some great sleep here -10 minute walk to subway station, 25 minutes walk to the hospital -Close to the Met and Central Park (15 minutes walk) -Valerie was a very welcoming host, with extensive knowledge of the neighbourhood and New York, and went out of her way to make my stay enjoyable and stress-free -AC in the room- a must in August! -Very reasonable price (for New York anyway!) Cons (stretching here somewhat): -Area isn't that central, so I wouldn't stay here as a tourist if you only have a few days, but it's great if you're staying in the city for a while -Room doesn't have much natural light -Can't lock your room door- although I never felt this was a problem -Fourth floor walk up, so not for those with mobility issues -No laundry in building, but there are many laundromats nearby All in all, I really enjoyed my stay here, would consider staying here again, and would recommend it to a friend. Thanks Valerie!

Hi Tanya, Thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed your stay even if you had to walk up those stairs (think of all the American portions you were able to enjoy guilt-free :) Hope things are going well in Scotland! Best wishes, Valerie

Valerie is a wonderful hostess - she was great about coordinating with us for arrival details and offering guidance and suggestions about places to visit in the city. The apartment is in a great location - just 5 mins walk from the 4, 5, 6 train and the neighborhood has many restaurants. Inside, the apartment offers privacy in the bedroom and is spacious in the common living areas. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a weekend in the city or even someone seeking a longer-term arrangement for business or study. Thanks for a great stay!!!

Valerie was a great host! She was really helpful explaining how to move around the city and it was a pleasure staying in the room. The location is nearby a subway station and the neighbourhood is really a calm, peaceful and quiet place. Valerie is a really nice person and she was always respectful and always offering her help with anything. Thanks for that!

There is a reason that Valerie is a super host! I stayed with Valerie for 3 months and she was great! She was very considerate, communicated well, was a great resource for activities and always made me feel at home. Her place is in an amazing location with Central Park being a 15-20 minute walk away, the subway station being a 10-15 minute walk away and of course all the great restaurants/bars in the neighborhood. Also worth mentioning is how close the MET and Guggenheim museums are. The room I stayed in was spacious and her apartment is adorable with the brick walls and hard wood flooring. Valerie also went above and beyond when she offered to hold onto some of my things until I could pick them up again because I didn't have enough room in the few bags that I had brought with me when I left. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay again. Thank you Valerie for making my stay a great experience!

Many many thanks to Valerie for having been a wonderful, lovely and welcoming host. I truly felt like I had a home of my own in NYC! She helped and advised me on everything I needed and we even hanged out together, so I definitely had the most amazing time at her cozy place. The neighborhood in the Upper East Side is safe, trendy and very desirable as well as at a stone's throw from the museums mile and Central Park, just the ideal location for arts aficionados and museum goers. I would definitely recommend her room to anyone visiting New York and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in the future. Two thumbs up!
