When in NYC it´s busy. Then it´s nice to have a good place to rest in. This is the perfect place, the host are very nice and you feel that you are at home. Peaceful area, near to Central Park and lots of restaurants and bars. The real opposite to Times Square!

Monica and Larry made us feel at home during our stay here with my parents. My partner and I stayed in the studio on the first floor and my parents had the adjoining suite (which can be opened into one large floor if you wish). The bed was very comfortable and the facilities in the studio were great (it was... More

We have just returned home after a 6 night stay in Monica and Larry's wonderful property. We rented a suite and adjoining studio - both were superb - very clean and very comfortable. We particularly appreciated Monica's helpfulness and she really did go out of her way to make sure we got the most out of our visit. We have... More

I am very pernickity about accommodation when travelling and research extensively before booking. I also prefer to stay in small B& Bs or apartments as I believe the standards are higher and you can live like a local, which enhances the overall experience. As a result of my research I decided on The West Townhouse and I can say with... More

We just completed a stay this week in a studio room. The owner is precious and the location perfect for us. It was close to Central Park, buses and the Subway 1 train which runs north/south through Manhattan. The room was clean and well furnished. The price was in line with what one would expect for the Upper West Side.... More

I attempted to book here for 4 nights but their offer of accommodation was promptly withdrawn - and the price went up by $20/night - when I did not immediately agree to their suggestion of staying 5 nights instead of 4. Furthermore, it took 3 days before they replied to my initial email inquiry. Travellers thinking of staying here might... More

We stayed in The West Townhouse for 8 days and just loved it. Close to 2 subway stations, cafes, restaurants, the Central Park and many other places... Nice, tidy, clean, that's a pretty special place to stay. Monica and Larry, the owners, are very nice people and made we very comfortable We highly recommend this place!

It was a perfect stay from our first contact with Monica via email to our checkout. Monica welcomed us and showed us around our room, gave us keys and assured us that she was there if we needed anything. The studio with its ten foot high ceilings, tasteful decor and comfortable bed was spacious, bright and fully equipped with modern... More

We stayed in August for 5 nights and enjoyed every one of them. The location is excellent, a quick 2 blocks to the subway, right near Central Park and the Natural History, and a pleasant stroll straight across Central Park to the Metropolitan (not to mention a Joe's Coffee a short block away - excellent!). The subway line is a... More

We had a fantastic 4-night stay in June for our honeymoon. We couldn't have asked for a better home base for our visit. We stayed in the beautiful Suite 4R, which had a super comfy bed, a great little kitchen and charming furniture (and fresh flowers!). We just loved the character of the place; so much better than an impersonal... More
