We stayed as a group of 3 guys, Chung, the owner, was fantastic.. Really helpful and always there to sort any issues that you might have! Thanks Chung! The area is cool, it is quite far up Manhattan, bit it's right beside the Subway and you can catch the express train to Times Square in no time at all, plus, the area around Hamilton heights is really cool and it's real NewYork! Can't recommend enough! Would definitely stay here again


Our experience at Hamilton Heights has been nothing short of fantastic. Chung made us feel welcome and well looked after during our stay. We highly recommend staying here, very close to rail system and soooo easy to get around. Perfect for a comfortable return point between long visits in the city. We WILL be returning in the future, look out Chung!

I emailed the day before to let him know we were arriving 2.30-3pm, when we arrived we were told that the apartment wasn't ready as previous visitors left late. An hour later we were able to leave our bags in but it wasn't clean so we couldn't shower and had to go out. Overall the apartment wasn't completely ready till 9pm! We had to cancel plans we made that night so was dissapointed. Owner was easy to get hold off, was able to phone and email. Shower was cold and he sorted it after 2 emails.

The apartment is great, Chung also. We loved our stay until we find out we were not alone. There was a RAT in the apartment. We found out on the last day there was a touch of rats under the bunk. I was terrified! Everything was great until we discovered this little tidbit.


Was expecting a place with some receptionist. So do not believe it was true when we encounter the local residents in the building. The owner did not answer me, but housed were attentive and gave us the necessary information. Very nice place, well located, with hot water and inside the apartment is clean. The building itself is old and dirty. Worth the stay.

- PROS: The appartment ( and the kitchen) has good facilities. Many thanks to Chung Lee as he agreed the request of keep our baggage for a week. Besides we requested to check out later and he agreed. - CONS: You need to contact him by phone before your arrival.


The place is very good, so close to the subway. the owner is always available. on the studio, You have everything to feel home, for cooking, for sleep etc... we spend a very good moments too on the terrasse, nice space for smokers or for have a nice breakfast.

We had a nice stay, a few minor problems but nothing we couldn't survive. We were worried how (and if) we would get access to the apt since Chung had not responded to our emails but it worked out fine when we came. Apart from that Chung is nice, even helped us print a ticket when we needed one. I recommend *Sundays, the church service just around the corner (we're not religious but it was an experience) *The Chinese take away almost next door *A and D express trains to downtown
