I stayed in the Zen room which is on the third floor of the Ivy Terrace B&B in NYC. I decided to go up and spend a weekend visiting my daughter and have some fun. Although the Zen room is located on the third floor it is quite manageable if you are used to walking and in good shape. It is a large studio (by NYC standards) and had all the creature comforts one needs for a relaxing place to come back to after running around in the city all day. I arrived on a warm Friday afternoon and the room was all ready...air on, refrigerator stocked with breakfast essentials, more than adequate towels in the bathroom, maps in the nightstand, and a welcoming bed. The evenings were cool so I turned off the air-conditioning and opened the window. It was August mind you, and I realize many residents leave the city, but I was truly surprised at how quite it was. I slept well and woke up refreshed and ready to run around Manhattan again. Additionally, I know other rooms were occupied but I could not hear the tenants. Overall it's a quiet, safe, and wonderfully located Bed and Breakfast. I would highly recommend staying here as there is more space then a hotel room and it offers the convenience of a small kitchenette for breakfast and dining in.
