This place is a real find! Excellent location, quiet street (for NYC) and beautifully furnished. Larry and Monica are great hosts and we will definitely be coming back when we are next in NYC. It is only a couple of blocks from Central Park in one direction and Riverside Park in the other and a very short walk to the... More

It has been 3 years since we first discovered The West Townhouse. When organising a recent return trip to NYC, booking in our accommodation was our top priority. This visit we made sure that we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for our week's stay. This time we were in the lower floor suite which is situated at the back... More

We appreciated the location of The West Townhouse very much. It's in a short walking distance to many good restaurants (a lot of them top ranked on tipadvisor as we were positively surprised) and central park. We also walked into town and to the upper east side but I guess I would also say that I like to explore the... More

We recently stayed in a lower suite of The West Townhouse for a week. We loved feeling like a part of the neighborhood by staying in this townhouse. It was a great location to get anywhere in New York. It is within walking distance to Central Park, numerous great restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. The subway and buses are both... More

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at the West Townhouse. We had an amazing time. We found the apartment to be exactly as described on the website. Location was brilliant - 2 blocks from Central Park; away from Time Squares madness but you can be there by subway in 15 minutes. The upper west side had great... More

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

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
