Super markets, organic grocery stores, wine bars, bars with live music are all within walking distance. Lido, Harlem Tavern, Melba's, Zoma, 67 Orange St, and the Bier Bar, Jado Sushi are a few of my favorite restaurants near me.

Reviews of this property
What should I say, staying at Elise's cozy hut is one of the best things that can happen to you when you visit New York!
A warm welcome after a long journey, very comfortable bed in the night , bagel with cream cheese in the morning - it's like staying at a friend's home. And Elise can tell you so much about New York, where to go, the places not described in your travel guides. Elise was always supportive and helpful.
Her flat is cozy and clean , you could have breakfeast if you like and it it was a lot of fun to talk to Elise in the morning with a coffee pot in your hands or after a long day in Manhatten in the evening. Ask her for all the great options in the neighborhood. Harlem is great with a lot of real hot spots. Good food, great cookies, bars with live music, gospel service ...wow! I never expected Harlem to be so exciting.
I really felt save in the neighborhood, same in the whole town, what really astonished me. I never would have expected to walk alone through Manhatten .
So finally I only can recommend to stay at Elise's cozy hut if you want the real New York experience. Five stars for Elise! I surely will come back :)
We had a wonderful stay in New York. MOstly because of where we stayed and because of all the help and kindness we got from our host Elise. Our room and the apartment was cozy, clean and quiet. We slept so wonderful in a super-bed and we couln`t think of a better place to stay for a New York -tour. We will recommend the place to our friend, planing to go to New York, and everybody else. And we hope to get the opportunity to come back. Thanks a lot to Elise for this great experience.
The apartment is fantastic, it is very clean and comfortable. Elise is very friendly and she will help you need :D
I'm very sorry to write this evaluation so late. We have wonderful memories of the time in New York and in this apartment in the last summer (despite heatwave). The apartment is well situated and very cosy. And Elise is very nice and extremely helpfully.
Kind regards and all the best
Maurin + Nina
Finally our review for our mesmerizing time in NYC...
Thanks to Elise and her positive energy, we had a wonderful time ....we only have one regret today...that we did not stay more... On top of being really flexible, Elise was very helpful... The flat was as described and location was top notch... Close to underground station and Central Park, not to mentioned nice restaurant around (we loved the Ethiopian and Japanese)... Well, a great thank you Elise.... Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year... Faiza and Henri
Despite not so nice weather we spent great days in New York and especially Elise.
The comfortably furnished and clean apartment has contributed to a great holiday feeling. There we felt really at home and not miss anything. Thank you, Elise.
The holidays will be remembered in a very good memory. We will come back. :-)
Trotz nicht so schönem Wetter haben wir tolle Tage in New York und vor allem bei Elise verbracht.
Die gemütlich eingerichtete und saubere Wohnung hat zu einem tollen Urlaubsgefühl beigetragen. Wir haben uns dort wirklich wie zu Hause gefühlt und nichts vermisst. Vielen Dank, Elise.
Der Urlaub wird uns in sehr guter Erinnerung bleiben. Wir kommen gerne wieder. :-)
We stayed at Elise's place for a week in late October / November and it was absolutely great!! The apartment is as cozy and nice as described and you really feel like coming home after a long (and maybe exhausting) day of touring Manhattan. Elise is a great host: she's a warm person, easy to talk to, helpful in every way, great to have fun with and a real good 'tourist guide' as she knows all the good restaurants, bakeries, insider information, e.g. basically you'll feel like a NY citizen during your stay!
- location: 2 minutes walk to subway, 5 minutes walk to Central Park
- nice and friendly neighbourhood with many restaurants around
- cozy and quiet apartment
- breakfast with a variety of good coffee
- the NY Knicks lost the (basketball) game, but that's hardly Elise's fault :-)))
We'll definitely come back and stay at Elise's place!!!
It was a really nice week at Elises apt. Her apt. is very comfortable and the location is very good. Elise is very nice and helpful, especially if you have questions.
We have a had a great experience with Elise and her beautiful Cozy hut. This is our first visit to NYC and our first time sharing a flat on holidays and we will recommend this to everyone not only because Elise is a great hoster but because she makes your visit here very pleasant and unforgetable.
Thank you very much Elise, we hope to see you Soon!!!
We had a wonderful time staying in Elise's apartment. It is very cozy, peaceful and clean. It really felt like coming home after our long days exploring NYC.
I totally fell in love with the neighborhood. Very friendly and helpful people and great restaurants (our favorites were Jado's for Sushi, Harlem Food Bar and Melba's, but there are many more) If you stay there over a weekend don't miss church on a sunday. It was a great experience, totally different from what we know in Europe.
The location is perfect, metro (B/C) is only two blocks away, another one is pretty close, busses just around the corner. Central Park is only some minutes away, we sometimes grabbed a coffee to go in the morning and enjoyed it there.
Elise, you are a wonderful host. Too bad that you left the city for some days, I would have loved to spend more time chatting with you.
I hope that if I come back to NY I can stay with you again. Thank you very much!
