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.

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...

We stayed at the 1871 house on a cold, quiet Sunday evening in late March. After coming out of the cold into the warmly lit foyer, we climbed the stairs to the rear library. We had fun looking through books (a Beatles collection, and another on the photography of Annie Liebowitz). Much better than staying in a Holiday Inn watching... More

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.
