Loved the 1871 House! It's in a great location on a beautiful residential street with easy access to shops and good restaurants (try the French bistro down the street). The service was great and the room I stayed in was spacious yet cozy. Can't wait to go back in the spring!

We were three mature women visiting New York for a holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 1871 House. It was safe, clean and comfortable and gave us exactly the accommodation we wanted. The stairs to our room were a little steep but we had been warned about this before booking and it only added to the character of the... More

I was delighted to discover the 1871 House on my last trip into NYC. Located on one of the most charming blocks on the upper east side, this beautiful property is convenient to everything the city has to offer. It is private and cozy enough to feel like a home away from home while having all the amenities of an... More

Very quiet, clean, great location and Lia and warren are extremely nice people. They made us feel at home. Our room was very spacious, can't wait to go back over the summer. I recommend it to anyone who wants to stay at a convenient and quiet location in Manhattan.

I continue to be in love with 1871 House and their staff. This is my go-to place when in NYC and it never disappoints. My other reviews outline my detailed feedback and experiences. Everything - and I mean EVERYTHING - about this place meets and exceeds my expectations. Candidly, I am very surprised at the spate of negative reviews I... More

The first morning the shower didn't work and hot water was NOT an option. Also had trouble with the knob that caused the shower sprayer to spray. Getting water to run in the bathroom sink was intermittent. Called the staff and they were helpful - sort of. The guy who came up to help had a bit of an attitude.... More

We were sorry to hear that these guests felt that they were inconvenienced during their stay. We are a small business and aim to please as many guests as we can but understand we cannot please everyone. The suite these guests occupied is located on the top floor of our building (4th floor) and although that is a lot of... More

This review is written with full awareness, based on other critical postings, that management and ownership will dispute every issue and attack the comments and the author. They clearly operate in an environment of “the customer is always wrong”.

We are not surprised to see this party has left such a lengthy defamatory review, given the disrespectful and uncooperative approach they took during their entire stay. Though we ordinarily address points made on TA reviews in order to clarify anything for prospective guests, in this case, we feel that would be a needless exercise: we can sum up quite... More

I stayed at 1871 House for three full weeks for a work trip. In that time, I stayed in the Parlour Room, the Front Library Room, and the Mission Suite. The Parlour room has very high ceilings, the Front Library Room is cozy, but the Mission Suite was my favorite. It's modern, cool, and quiet, and had the nicest layout... More

Firstly, this place has mice. My stepdaughter saw one in her room, and then we saw another one in my room. The owners are perfectly aware of that, because their contract says they bear no responsibility for both incects and rodents. I find that ridiculous given the price they charge. Secondly, wi-fi wasn't working when we arrived. Though it was... More
