Stay the Night Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed 3 May 2014

My friend and I just got back from a 4 night stay here and it was lovely! Our trip to the city was just for writing research, so we were trying to spend as little as possible. We stayed in the cheapest room ($100 a night) and it was even better than we'd expected! Our room was actually bigger than we'd anticipated and we were really excited that there was a loft/shelf bed above the dresser! The room we were in on the top floor shares a bathroom with the room next door, which was fine. We made friends with our neighbors! The neighborhood is great, right across the street from Central Park, and not a far walk from the closest subway station. I will definitely stay here again!

This was our second time staying at Stay the Night. We previously stayed in the Fox Suite, which had a great balcony and was on the back of the building. This time we spent 5 nights in the Cecelia Suite. It was larger, and on the front of the building. We love the charm and character of this great old building. Parts of it are a little shabby, but that doesn't bother us. The location is perfect for walking to Central Park, museums, shops, restaurants, and bars, as well as being close to the subway. We like being in a residential neighborhood, but close to other activities. It is also a great value when compared to hotels. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit New York.

Thanks for sharing your experiences on Tripadvisor, Sue. I'm happy to hear your second stay was as charming as your first! As you say, we've got a great location -- it's wonderful to be in a residential neighborhood that's close to all the best NY attractions. I hope we'll be seeing you again soon.

Robin H., Owner

My wife and I enjoyed our short stay at this location. Conveniently located, and wonderfully priced. We stayed in the Cecilia room, which was plenty spacious. We loved how "homely" it felt, as opposed to the hotel feel.

Our only complaint/drawback that prevents a five star rating was the uncomfortable mattress. I'm not sure how the other rooms were, but this suite featured dual twin beds, that combine into a king/queen size bed, which is not an issue, the mattress is just too firm for my liking.

We would definitely recommend

Spent five nights at Stay the Night in the one bedroom apartment (MacKenzie Suite). There were three of us, adult couple and a 16 year old, and the apartment served us very well for our stay. It is on the 4th floor in a lovely old building. We were aware of the stairs beforehand so no issue. The apartment is well fitted out and very light and homely (although a bit tired around the edges) and like most places in NY, includes free wi-fi. Although a bit noisy at night if you open the windows (to be expected in NYC) the neighbourhood was very safe and we found the location to be very convenient...1 minute to Central Park, an easy walk to the Guggenheim and Met Museum of Art, lots of nearby restaurants and a grocery store, and a short walk to the subway. Several times we walked into the city through Central Park as an alternative to the subway / buses. I would definitely recommend Stay the Night.

I stayed for one night after a business meeting and found this to be a gem! My room was large, the bathroom was also large and modern, lots of charm and located on a quiet street. Very close to museums and in a great neighborhood for local shops and a variety of restaurants. Will definitely stay here again!

If you are looking for a modern, sterile hotel room, Stay the Night is not for you. If you are looking for genuine old world NY charm, then it's definitely for you. Amazing location on the upper east side, steps from Central Park. The property has been subdivided into a number of apartments (ours was the Madeline Suite), each retaining the furnishings and character of another time. Makes you feel as if you are living as a wealthy New Yorker in the 1930s. Comfortable, private (we didn’t see any of the other guests during our 4 day stay), with an elegance of a time gone by. Robin was an unobtrusive host, but readily available if needed. Big living/sleeping area; small area for microwave, fridge, and drip-filtered coffee; big bathroom with toilet, shower, and bath tub. Close to shops, subway (96th and Lexington), and retaurants (Sarabeth's on Madison between 93rd and 92nd was great; their Warm Raspberry Bread Pudding might sound a bit mundane, but it was the best dessert we have ever eaten).

And after all that, it's inexpensive by NY standards. Stay the Night rocks! Thoroughly recommended and definitely our first choice for next visit to New York.

Room Tip: Madeline Suite had a King size bed and an inflatable Queen (it was very easy to inflate and actually...

This is a great b&b in a lovely area of New York. Really quiet which meant no traffic or noise in a safe neighborhood but also close enough to all the action the city has to offer!
The room (Lorraine suite) we stayed in was spacious and most importantly very clean!
I would definite recommend Stay the Night to anybody who is traveling to New York and wants to find somewhere reasonable, quiet, safe and something different!
Will certainly return (hopefully soon!!)
