Funky uptown studio with queen-size Casper bed (and single aerobed) and newly renovated bathroom. Two blocks from Central Park, close to Columbia, St. John's Cathedral, subway lines, restaurants and bars; 10-minute train ride to Midtown. Stocked kitchen, WiFi, nice light. No TV.

The space

This is a fully furnished one-room studio with a galley kitchen, exposed brick walls and hardwood floors. The apartment is decorated with a mix of simple wood furniture and a few antiques, plus a lot of art and books. The bathroom has been recently renovated and is in mint condition. It's a third-floor walkup.

Guest access

The apartment is a great base from which to explore New York, with convenient subway access. There are also several parks: Central, Riverside, Morningside and the tiny but lovely Strauss parks are all blocks away. Hawaiian, Thai, Indian, Japanese and Italian food, plus several bars and pubs, are all within a 5-minute walk. Also it's about a 7-minute walk to the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine and a 15-minute walk to Columbia University.

My friend and I stayed at Leslie's apartment for 3 weeks and had an awesome time! The apartment was perfect for our stay with a small kitchen, dining table, very comfy bed and nice toilet! The apartment is actually a bit bigger than it appears on the pictures, which was perfect! It is also very close Central Park and to different subways and was therefore easy to get around!! Leslie was very easy to get in contact with and was super kind! She also gave us some nice recommendations before our arrival. We can definitely recommend her apartment and would love to stay there again another time! :)

We had a wonderful time staying at Leslie's studio. It was convenient to two different lines, so getting around was super easy. There was more than enough space for the two of us, and her bed is the most comfortable one in the world.

We had a great experience. The place was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Leslie was very accommodating with the key pickup and also sent us recommendations for the area before our arrival. We would definitely stay here again.

Leslie very kindly accommodated my late arrival to Manhattan and provided a list of nearby activities for the weekend. She was very easy to reach before and during my stay. The apartment is very comfortable and very easy to reach from Laguardia (only about twenty minutes by car).

Leslie was such an amazing host, very accommodating, friendly, and always responded quickly. Her apartment really was a treasure, every part of it was quaint and unique. The windows were tall, and filled the room with natural light. There are so many nice shops and restaurants within walking distance, and everyone in the neighborhood itself was very friendly. Conveniently, there are 2 subway stations within arms reach, and a beautiful Cathedral a couple blocks away. Leslie made my stay in Manhattan absolutely memorable, I would definitely stay again if she were to have me.

Leslie was really kind and helpful, she responded quickly to our messages and answered all our questions. We got really nice tips, hints, and she gave even her metro card for that week:) The neighbourhood was also fine, safe, the metro stops within 5 minutes walk, grocery stores, coffee shops, etc also within 5 minutes. Overall for this price its a reasonable, correct place, we can recommend with no doubts!
