Picked this spot on line holding my breath. Daughter was running in NYC Marathon and we needed a quiet place [if that is possible in NYC] for four people. This restored 19th Century Building is a delight with unique features that put you into another era. Features are not modern but delightful and street noise is an issue as insulation... More

Ceiling very low in the bathroom but doable. In the garden room (2) which was just awesomely quiet and serene (though no microwave... More

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.

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.

This was a family/friend senior trip to celebrate high school graduation.

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.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood, 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.
