Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 16, 2014

A lovely, original, 1888 Brownstone opposite a quiet park. 5-10 mins from serious transit routes. Walking distance to lots of great eateries. Host great, very helpful.
Only gripes very minor .... Ice w'd be nice! Friday night partying next door on our level was a bother, but they stopped..... Thank God! .... At about 11.30.
Will certainly return next time in NY.

The house is beautiful. The hosts were friendly and very hospitable, bringing us brownies and having a glass of wine with us on the first night to help us settle in and understand the area.

We slept 6 people comfortably in the top floor apartment and for such an amazing price. The metro was close and easy. We were even lucky enough to cheer on the marathon with all the neighbours which ran right outside the apartment block.

The homely accommodation made the trip, as we spent all day walking around and so could not wait to get into the comfy beds to rest, ready for the next day.

I could not recommend this place in any higher esteem.

Room Tip: We had the whole of the top floor apartment and it was perfect!

Since our first trip to New York we stayed here and we have returned ever since.
The house is wonderful and Dimitri and Vassili make you really feel at home.
Rooms are big ( more than enough space for shopping bags:) and beds comfortable ...
It is a relaxing place amidst all the New York action... cake and tea in the kitchen and a good subway near by, good restaurants in the immediate neighborhood ...nothing more one could wish for

We decided to stay at Mount Morris on our first trip to NYC. The midtown hotels, whilst close to all the action, seemed to expensive and impersonal. This wonderful house is the direct opposite, reasonably priced and very personable! It's got great access to NYC being at the top of 5th Avenue - a bus to midtown stops just outside.

The room was spacious, comfortable and full of character. We would happily stay here again! Being here gave us a whole different, and positive, view of New York that we'd have completely missed being anywhere else.

Tips: From the house, take a walk down 5th Avenue for 10 minutes past the amazing looking fire station to the top of Central Park. Harlem Meer is outstanding particularly early in the morning.
Use buses rather than the subway! You get to see so much more of the city. The M1 bus stops outside and goes all the way down 5th past the Guggenheim, Rockefeller, St Patrick's, the public library, Empire State and the Flatiron. It goes all the way down to Washington Square Park! A sightseeing trip in itself.
Finally take a trip to the upper west side on W 80th/Broadway and buy some coffee from Zabar's. It's a New York institution!

Wonderful little brownstone just north of central park. The house was beautiful and charming, and our stay couldn't have been more comfortable. Dimitri was extremely polite and helpful, and our room was better than what we expected. The pictures don't do it justice!

Not only was this a great place to stay for our first trip to New York, but it is one of the best bed and breakfast houses we've stayed at. We will definitely come back again.

Choosing Mount Morris House for our New York City accommodation was not just a decision where to stay - it became a precious part of our New York experience! The house is nicely renovated respecting the original wood work style. Everything is nice and clean and delicious cake and cookies are available in the kitchen when you return after a long day in the city. The neighbourhood is very quiet and restaurants are nearby.

It would be churlish not to review, once again, this house and the generous warmth of its owners: it is our pleasure to record that every stay is better than the last. We hope that we will have the opportunity to return to it often. The accommodation is elegant and spotlessly clean, there is a wonderful library of books, the location is extremely convenient for a visitor to Manhattan, and the hosts are kind and thoughtful, and can be relied on to be comfortingly helpful. We are very happy in Mount Morris House, always.
