Mount Morris House is a wonderful place to stay if you want somewhere to relax and feel at home at the end of a long day on the tourist trail. If you want character and history, rather than a soulless tower-block hotel, then this is the perfect place. Dimitri is a wonderful host - charming and always helpful - as well as very entertaining! We were three women friends on a weekend trip to celebrate a significant birthday for one of us. We stayed in the Terracotta Suite (overlooking the park) which was spacious with plenty of storage, a good-sized shower and very comfortable beds. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and there is a daily maid service. The rooms are eclectically furnished and have interesting pictures and pieces (some antique) in them collected over the years by the owners. Although they don't do breakfast any more, tea, coffee, water and cake are freely available in the kitchen, as is access to a refrigerator. It is quiet at night here, although there is a bit of traffic noise in the early mornings. As this is an historic brownstone house, be aware that there are quite a number of steps up to the front door which could be challenging for those with less mobility. If we come back to New York, we'll definitely be staying here again! Transport links (bus and subway) are nearby and pretty efficient.
