Very quiet apartment in the gorgeous Upper East Side. Extremely friendly landlord who makes you feel at home. Perfect for anyone is looking for a quiet room in a great part of the city.
Stayed here for a couple of months. Its conveniently-located in a safe neighborhood. The rent is reasonable and the landlady may well be the best landlady Ive ever had! She keeps the place clean and is wonderfully accommodating. She really goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. This was one of the best experiences Ive had in NYC.
Although I did not rent a unit from Alice, she responded to my e-mails promptly and made every attempt to accommodate my short notice in attempting to rent a unit. If I should return to NYC for another work assignment, I will definitely reach out to her for a potential unit to rent.
I would highly recommend this landlord. She does everything to please. Although she does not live in the building (she lives on the next street), she was always willing to come over to help whenever she could. I called her twice, once when it was snowing and once when it was raining heavily. She came right over and repaired a light switch on one occasion and helped with a blown fuse on the other. On the phone, she directed me first to the concierge to make these repairs but when I said I was not as comfortable contacting them as I was with her, Alice immediately came over with her tool box to assist me.
I stayed with her for 6 months on one occasion and before that, for 3 weeks. Both times, she demonstrated the same attitude as described above. She was always willing to go out of her way to please me. She supervised the cleaning lady she got for me and my place was always spotless. Though I never asked, she she even prepared meals for me and brought them across the street for me during the time when I had the flu.
Both places had private bathrooms. There was a washing machine and a dryer on each floor where I rented from her. The building has a 24 hour doorman and the nicest neighbors that you can imagine. The neighborhood is great - safe, friendly and full of places to eat out, have food delivered and reasonably priced stores and places of entertainment. She told me she furnished my place with the same furniture as she had for her own daughter. When I came to her to visit on a recent day trip to New York, I visited her daughter at her daughters apt. and saw that what I had been told was the truth.
Once when I lost my keys and called her on her cell, she had her manager leave his worksite and come immediately to help me out. In the meantime, she offered to let me stay in her own apartment across the way. I would rent from her anytime.
I rented from this landlord on two separate occasions, once for three months and once for almost six months when I had to be in NYC on business.
The place is super clean and comfortable. The landlord -a lady - is extremely nice and accommodating.
The place is very quiet and spacious. The heating and air-conditioning worked perfectly. There were no bugs.
I have referred my friends to her and everyone had only nice reports about the place and about the landlady.
Her places are very reasonably priced. You get a lot for the money you are paying. The place was great!
