I was looking forward to our stay in this charming looking place. I will admit up front I am a designer and we have high standards. If you have very high standards, this is definitely not the place for you. You will be disappointed. The high point is the location. The low points are easy things to change other than... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days in the front library room during our East Coast vacation. We rarely stay in hotels (mostly vacation rentals and B&B's), so this was right up our alley. The positives: The location can't be beat. The house has great charm, character and history, which we loved and appreciated. The staff was nice... More

This is a beautiful place, very well furnished, a great location with caring staff and a less than compassionate owner. Due to no fault of our own, we had to be moved from the roomy,well appointed quiet Knickerbocker to the Parlor Room, the owner insisted that we pay the difference between the cost of the rooms upfront as the infestation...

We want to thank this guest for the positive comments made about 1871 House though they were unhappy. In regard to the main issue of cockroaches, to begin with, there is a regular exterminator that comes in every month throughout the year.

This was a family/friend senior trip to celebrate high school graduation. The room arrangement of the full-floor library suite was perfect for us, as my husband and I took the front room, the kids took the rear room, and there was a small kitchenette and hallway connecting the two. Everyone had their own space, but we were still in a... More

"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.

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.

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.
