Upper West Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

The Metropolitan Room, as it is known, is an elegantly furnished studio is up one flight of stairs in a 1890 brownstone townhouse. The four poster queen size bed is extremely comfortable and laden with pillows and a comforter. The south facing windows fitted with folding shutters and venetian blinds look out over West 82nd Street. The kitchen is small but efficient with a brand new LG stainless steel refrigerator and stove. The charming wallpapered bathroom is has a bathtub and features both a standard shower and a hand held shower.

There is a new flat screen television behind the shutters of the armoire. The big desk has plenty of room to set up a computer and work. There are two leather club chairs facing the fireplace (non-working). A commodious dresser and big closet will fit all your clothes. Hangers are provided, of course. The floor is carpeted in a wool berber and there is an arts and crafts wallpaper wainscotting around the room.

We are a married couple who live on the ground floor, one of us is an architect, the other a composer of classical music. We both work from home. We will greet you upon your arrival and are happy to guide you to features of the neighborhood. The building is extremely quiet and secure, as is the tree lined block in the heart of the Upper West Side. You are just steps from the greatest museums, shopping and entertainment in the world.

About Warren Ashworth

We are an artist couple, one of us is a composer of classical music the other is a painter and an architect. We have two grown children. We live and work in the brownstone.

Warren Ashworth purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Warren Ashworth chose Upper West Side

This is our year round residence. We have two VRBO units in this brownstone, each across the hall from the other. The other unit, The Dutch Room, is listed under VRBO 430146. Families and friends often like to book both. They are both studios and both are the same rental rates.

What makes this apartment unique

High ceilings, quiet, beautifully furnished.

Unlike many listings, The Metropolitan Room is fully licensed by the City and State of New York to operate as a hotel for which we collect and pay taxes. Our license numbers are available upon request.

Great place on the upper west side of NYC!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spend four days at this total gem in the city!!! Our host greeted us and made us feel totally at home, providing us with hints for places to eat and visit within walking distance to our location. The subway is located very close, providing more than one access point. Close to Central Park and the museum of National History. The room was very clean, and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again, we usually make 1 or 2 trips to the city each year and would have no problems recommending this location for anyone.

Wonderful location, just right for a busy week of sightseeing

  • 5 of 5
In an extremely safe location, right down the street from the police department. A nice opportunity to stay in a residential area. Bistros and cafes nearby. Subway and bus stops very close. Within walking distance of Metropolitan Museum, Guggenheim, Natural History Museum & Zabars. Apartment is clean with ample storage. Small, but it's in New York! We've had much smaller rooms in other cities and in Europe. Owner was responsive to our needs. We would request to stay again if we had the opportunity.

A gem within the city

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 5 days here to celebrate his birthday and we couldn't have had a better time. Warren and Susan have a perfect location for exploring the city in a most wonderful neighborhood that we so enjoyed. We have stayed in other parts of the city and found this location to be the best for walking everywhere and it is so quiet! The tree lined street is beautiful and the traffic noise in non existent. The restaurants that Warren suggested were spectacular, there were just too many to choose from! The neighborhood feel was great and we definitely will be back to spend more time. The room was very efficient; a lovely setting with great light and comfortable bed. Thank you Warren and Susan; you have a gem within this wonderful city. We can't wait to return.

Just wonderful.

  • 5 of 5
You will not be disappointed with this beautiful rental. We are frequent NYC visitors and will never stay in the busy Times Square area again. This apartment is just blocks away from excellent eating, Central Park, Natural History museum, and subways to immediately take you to other areas of the city. We enjoyed the peaceful, tree-lined street. We felt safe at all times of the day - we arrived back at the apartment late one evening (2am) from New Jersey and never felt uncomfortable. Warren and Suzanne were flexible with our arrival time and were always available to help us with any questions (we had none). The apartment is efficiently stocked with basic necessities, leaving you plenty of room to unpack your own belongings and relax. We look forward to staying again soon.

Great Experience Staying in Upper West Side

  • 4 of 5
My niece and I came to Manhattan as first time visitors. Staying in this studio was great in giving us the experience of the upper West Side. We went to Zabars practically every morning except the morning we went to Sarabeth's instead. Great restaurant, dessert places, and markets all within short walking distance in the neighborhood. Also, we became expert in using the Subway which is also within close walking distance. We were not met with the owners when we arrived, but they made simple alternative arrangements for us get into our room. I liked that they stocked the refrigerator with milk, Zabars coffee, and OJ. Also, bathroom had shampoos, soups, and other items for our use. Also, there was a binder of useful facts about the room and neighborhood and essentials that I had no questions for them even when I finally met them 4 days latter. The bathroom is very pink and somewhat small but the water pressure and temperature were fine and suitable to our needs. Since I am relatively in shape and strong, the carrying of my large suitcase up and down from the 2nd floor and the stairs outside of the building was not a problem. But I could see that it may be a problem for older or weaker travelers. In general, I would recommend this place to my friends.
