Awesome location!

3.8 on June 21, 2012

I stayed in 1R, one bedroom flat at 61 West 83rd with my wife and 2 daughters (early 20s). Minor negatives first: beds were not very comfortable and pillows were a bit flat. There were no dish cloths or dish towels and only a medicine cabinet mirror in the apartment. This is an apartment and not a bed and breakfast. All meals are on you. The room was clean and served us well. the location was sensational. Subway and bus stops were within two blocks. Restaurants of every variety lined Columbus and Amsterdam just a block and a block and a half away. Several 24 hour delis near by for nice late meal when the restaurants quit serving. Walking/running/biking in Central Park every morning was amazing. Sally at Cook travel was responsive before we arrived and we didn't need her after we arrived. We would certainly use them again and recommend this to anyone.

Recent Stay In New York December - January 11/12

4.0 on January 08, 2012

My family and I found this place to be a great location, quiet and out of the way. The subway is on 81st street and costs you 2.50 to ride directly into Times square taking about 5 minutes. Cab fares from times square $9.00 Max. It is close to the museum and central park (Strawberry fields and the dakota appartments for you beetles fans).This place is close to a few resturants which have breakfast lunch and Dinner. These places are nice and well priced. (If you like sushi Matsu is really nice). For those who want room service or to be waited on this is not for you this is a self contained unit..(Your in New York who wants to stay in their hotels anyway). We found the residents of the unit to be nice and helpful and the contact lady Sally was lovely and easy to deal with. I would and will be recommending this unit to all my friends and those who want to listen. Thanks a lot

Spent the night

4.0 on September 16, 2011

I spent one night at this bnb. We had the one bedroom with the outside patio. The place was clean and linens and towels freshly laundered. The sink in the bathroom was clogged up and I worked on it with a plunger with no luck. We didn't call management because it was so late. The patio was a disaster. It was overgrown and trash was strewn about. The furniture in the picture was no longer there. The rental agent told us to go to Central Park if we wanted to sit outside. I am allergic to mold and being on the lower level, the unit had mold. If you are allergic, I wouldn't stay there. My friend has no allergy and was not bothered. Overall, the unit we stayed in was a bit dated and could use some tlc, but was clean and convenient.

Great Location - Very old room

2.4 on September 14, 2011

I recently stayed for 5 days/4 nights. The location was great, lots of great shops and restaurants located near. Just 2 blocks from central park. However, I booked one location and received keys for a different location and was never told of the change of location. It was near impossible to get into our actual room as the lock didn't work and it took at least 5 minutes when coming/going to lock/unlock the door. The air conditioner was in the closet and had to be set up (it was a hot in NY!!). The shower did not work and we were forced to take an odd combination of a bath/shower. There were no additional towels/paper towels. The room came with two beds but there were only enough sheets/blankets for 1 bed. There are just a few fixes that could have been done to have made this a great stay!

Friendly hosts, awesome location!

The place is classic New York. Beautiful brownstone on historic block. The buildings were built in the 1880's, Near Central Park West and museums. Easy to get anywhere, bus and subway are all near by. I came home late at nite and never felt in danger. There are sidewalk cafes up and down Columbus avenue filled with young people eating and having a good time. No breakfast but great delis all around. Laundry right next door. Clean and cozy, Jackie was great. We called and she was waiting outside the door for us.Travel agency around the corner took care of our every need. We had the best time and this sweet apartment contributed to our fun

Best Location Near Midtown and Museums

5 on September 13, 2011

I have stayed there a couple of times. The location can not be better.. No breakfast, but there are restaurants and delis which deliver less than a block away. Central Park location is a dream. Close to subway. Times Square is an 8 minute ride away... Met Museum is a short walk accross the park,, Museum of Natural History is two blocks away... This is a really safe area, tucked into a block were brownstones are selling for $10 million... The hotels were all charging $400 a nite for a small room. But the one bedroom I stayed in was more like a suite.. Separate kitchen and bathroom, one flight up... My little dog was welcome and it was all very easy to arrange. Sally at Cook Travel took care of everything and even told us where and how to park our car on the street for free.. Charming, clear apartments with a flat screen TV and everything we could want. I especially liked the fact that we could cook lunch and dinners. Will definately stay again.

An Unsatisfactory Experience

1.6 on September 04, 2011

The Innkeeper was difficult to contact before and after we arrived in New York. We would have been out on the street for several hours without an alternate location to wait for contact and room preparation. The room appeared to be under renovation (large paint cans/supplies stored in the closets) and the bathtub appeared dirty/mouldy awaiting caulking). No cleaning/service was provided during our stay, and a supply of towels/linens stored in our closet disappeared after the first day. We consider the experience unsatisfactory and would not consider another stay at this location.

Great location

The best thing about staying in this Brownstone was that it felt like staying in a home not a cookie cutter tiny hotel room. The furnishing was not the most modern but it was very comfortable. We loved having a full kitchen including wine classes and high ceilings. The bed in the bedroom was comfortable but "THEY MUST REPLACE THE MATRESS ON THE PULLOUT COUCH!" Please throw away the extra bankets and buy some new ones. The comforter and blankets for the pull out bed were gross. There were plenty of extra towels but no extra sheets for the pullout bed. I emailed before we arrived and called for sheets but they never came. We would stay here again if they would just take care of the above items.

Nice place near the park

We were happy with our stay at the Central Park West Brownstone. The rooms were good-sized and the bed was comfortable. It is very close to Central Park, we walked to the park every day that we were there. If you have a group of more than two you may want to bring extra towels and washcloths.
