About this listing

The space

Beautiful apartment, in an excellent location on 110th and Amsterdam, near Columbia University, 3 blocks from Central Park and 2 blocks from lovely Riverside Park. The building faces lovely St. John the Divine church. Easy and quick transportation with your choice of three subway lines (1,B, and C) gets you to Times Square in 15 minutes.

This apartment is bright, large and comfortable. Clean, all new appliances, every comfort (flat screen TV, beautiful kitchen). It has a/c in living and bedrooms to keep cool in summer. Large, flat screen television with apple TV, internet, and a fully equipped kitchen. It has a small bedroom but a large living room separated by French doors (the second living room can be used as a second bedroom).

I love it here and love the neighborhood filled with restaurants, cafes and markets - Thai, Mexican, farm to table, French, craft beer bars, excellent Italian, amazing bagels, and more. There is a Whole Foods nearby and two excellent grocery stores a block away. Better yet - Central and Riverside Parks are two steps away as is Columbia University. The apartment is on the second floor in a walk up.

I also have family in the building so you have multiple forms of support throughout your stay if there are any problems.

Guest access

Everything - kitchen, living room, bathroom will all be yours during your stay.

Interaction with guests

Very little. You probably will not see me during your stay. I do have family in the building, though, so you will have many people to call in if there are problems.

The apartment is very clean and comfortable. Lovely hard wood floors and sun flooded dining room lined with books. The bed was very comfortable, and the decor is tasteful. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay near Columbia, this was a good choice. The tub/shower is a little narrow so if you are not nimble, it could be hard to get in and out of.

We stayed in Elisabeth's apartment as a couple with a baby and we found the apartment perfect for us. The bedroom was very quiet and the bed was really comfortable. The front dining room faces the street but you can close the French doors and enjoy peace and quiet in the living room if needed. The apartment is small but very nicely decorated. We didn't meet Elisabeth but she was extremely responsive and we did meet her sister who welcomed us to the apartment and was also very helpful. The location is basically next to the Cathedral of St John the Divine and a few blocks from Columbia. We visit NYC regularly and would be very happy to stay here again.

The place was just as described. Clean and large and bright. Just blocks from Columbia and right next to a great restaurant Marlow and across the street from a wonderful Hungarian pastry shop. Elisabeth was a great host with a lovely apartment. She met me when I arrived to walk me through. Place was just as described and well equipped. Will definitely try to stay here again. So easy

Great location for us to visit our son, a student at Columbia University. Very walkable and safe area. It's up a couple easy flights of stairs, in a quiet building. The unit is very comfortable and works well for a couple to stay for several days. Elisabeth was a dream to work with. Very responsive to all our questions, and she has a good backup network nearby if for some reason she wouldn't be available. We didn't need that. Don't hesitate to book this apartment if it's available, and you are looking for someplace in Morningside Heights.

Comfortable apartment in wonderful upper west side location. Everything you need is nearby and transportation is really easy. Elisabeth made check in & out a breeze and her recommendations for restaurants were great. The bed is really comfortable! Would recommend this to others, a good place to stay in NYC .

My parents had a great stay at Elisabeth's place! It was cozy and welcoming, and great for a couple to stay for two weeks. They were able to use the kitchen and cook meals ( all basic staples were kindly made available, but it is not a extremely well equipped kitchen) , as well as enjoy the living room amenities including a large screen and fast working wifi. The bedroom itself was pretty quiet, but the living and dining rooms overlooked a busy street which meant that it could get loud in the apartment at night (especially on weekends) which was a nuisance from time to time. However, my parents had a very pleasant stay overall, and we would recommend this place to visitors who want to be close to Columbia's campus and still have access to the rest of the city via the 1 line which has a stop steps away from the apartment.
