When you compare this type of rental versus hotel in NY-NY, this is an easy yes. Comfortable room, incredible furniture, a great place to return to and relax before you go do another dose of everything NYC has to offer. The site says it has parking, but that is public garages that are within 2 blocks. They have a "no... More

I have had the pleasure to stay at this brownstone boutique hotel on many occasions over the last several years. It is a special experience to stay in a well appointed suite located in the heart of the East Side. I like the Mission Suite with a small breakfast nook and brick walls. The street is quiet in contrast to... More

While the location is great, I did not find the MIssion Studio to be the charming location others have written about. I am sure that the upper floors are better but I would not return to the Mission Studio. It is dank, dark, and the bathroom is the definition of cramped. The staff is polite and I have no other...

The Mission Studio is as nice as all the reviewers mentioned. You can't beat the location ~ the neighborhood is wonderful, we loved being able to shop at local market & walk to the subway. After walking for what seemed liked miles each day, it was great to come home & relax in our studio. If your feet need some... More

We had a spectacular visit to New York. We did it all. Saw too much, ate too much and walked too much. NOTHING on earth was nicer than "coming home" to our suite at the 1871 House and feeling pampered in its' beauty, peacefulness and elegance.

I just wanted to let you know that my stay for the week in the Mission Studio made my time in NYC a wonderfut and easy one. The Studio was impeccable and very nice. I felt at home and couldn't wait to come back after a day out. It was a very enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend it... More

My daughter and I, spent 3 weeks, first, in The Rear Library Suite and then in the Studio. We are really grateful for our lovely stay at this beautiful B&B. The staff was so helpful and nice with us. The location is perfect!! We don’t hesitate to recommend 1871 House to our family and friends.

I have just returned from another amazing stay at 1871 House. I continue to be impressed with every aspect of my experience here - from the location to the rooms to the staff and everything in between. This trip was another exceptional experience that made me feel like I had my own personal place on the Upper East Side. I... More

My family spent 6 nights in the Lexington Suite in June, and it suited us very well. We were looking for a taste of old New York and we found it in this 4 story 100+ year old walk-up on the (lower) upper east side. Quiet and full of character, in a wonderful and centrally located neighborhood. Beds were fabulous.... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay in the Madison Suite at 1871 House. It was such a treat to have what felt like our own little Upper East Side apartment. The decor and furnishings were quaint, the space was roomy, and the location was perfect, tucked away from the hustle/bustle but close to everything: several corner groceries, nice restaurants...

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
