"I had business in my hometown - Manhattan, and didn't want to stay in a hotel atmosphere. This beautiful, old brownstone was perfect! Charming, well appointed and decorated, in a fantastic neighborhood, within walking distance to almost everything, and it felt like a home. I opted for a room with a kitchenette too. I was lucky enough to be there... More

Quaint efficiency suite (Knickerbocker) at a price that is reasonable for Manhattan, clean & neat. The neighborhood is great; Lex Ave has restaurants, delis, groceries & more. Convenient to Central Park. It wasn't available once & the hotel we got cost more, had much less & was over populated with dust bunnies.

This is definitely the place to stay when you are looking to experience the "New York Life" We stayed in the Rear Library and were totally blown away immediately upon entering the building and then again upon entering out room. We felt like it was the perfect way to begin and end our long days of touring while feeling connected... More

Location is great, walking distance to museums, shopping, coffee shops, and restaurants, and restaurants. But the place itself is "chintzy"! No housekeeping unless you pay for it!

We visit New York at least once a year, staying in different locations each time, until next time, that is. Now that we've found 1871House, we will never stay elsewhere. After booking our room, I reread some of the reviews. I found myself a little confused; there's such a difference between those that are negative and those that are positive.... More

Used to love this place.And have booked about 4-5 times but have got increasingly disappointed with the management and service level. Good hotel for privacy and NY experience. And location is great.

We were sorry to hear this guest’s most recent stay was not satisfactory. As a returning guest, we understood the guest was aware of our policies and that checkout is at 10:30 a.m. We often allow guests to push beyond that a bit without late check-out charges. We charge a late check-out fee to help defray our added cost of... More

After staying at 1871 House for five nights in June 2013, (See TripAdvisor review entitled “Perfect for a First Visit to New York”), it was an easy decision to again choose it when coming to the city for an extended period. For 6 1/2 months, I thought of the Parlor Suite as my home. As a writer, I worked in... More

This was my first trip to New York - a place I always wanted to go. So would it live up to expectations? We booked the 1871 House, just round the corner from Central Park, Bloomingdales and other attractions. In a quiet street surrounded by typical brown stone buildings it was everything we wanted. Big rooms, big beds, a real... More

1871 House is one of the least expensive options in a very expensive place to operate a business. The proper comparison would be to see what other accommodations charge versus 1871. At the time of this writing the Regency which is a block away is charging $1049 per night and the Lowell also a block away charges $1665 per night.... More

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.
