TOWNHOUSE STUDIO ON PERFECT BLOCK, QUIET, SUNNY, GRACIOUS.

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 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.

Great location, Great Value

  • 5 of 5
Last year the Dutch Room, this year the Metropolitan Room. Learn the M7, M11 and M104 bus routes and you can live like a New Yorker for a few days. Far better and more economical than a Hotel.

Simply Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Warren met us as we arrived. He toured us through the Metropolitan Room. It is so spacious and comfortable! Elegantly appointed, beautiful furnishings and truly comfortable. In fact, we actually had two friends over for an afternoon glass of wine. We couldn't hear a pin drop in the evening even though there were others staying in the rooms above and across the hall. Sadly, we had to check out on Sunday an stay at a hotel since another couple had already booked a Sunday check-in. When we checked into our new place about 5 blocks away, we realized just how good we had it. The hotel room was about 1/4 the size for only $50 less a night. $50 is well worth the increase in comfort, space, romantic luxury that comes with the Metropolitan Room. Our two night stay in the Metropolitan Room was a wonderful romantic escape, in fact, we got engaged in Central Park as part of our stay. This means we will need to return to the Metropolitan Room time and time again to celebrate this wonderful milestone in our relationship. This means we'll be seeing you again, Warren!

Best Accommodation on Upper West Side

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in places far more expensive than this, but nothing, has ever come close to the overall attributes of this property and the generosity of spirit of the owners. To make this simple: stay here! Actually don't, because too many people now know about it, and it's tough to get a vacancy.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect size and location for a couple discovering Manhattan. We had everything that we might have wanted in this well-equipped studio. We took a cab to and from the airport and used our feet and the great subway system the rest of the time. I am a big man and had seen some reviewers express concern about the small bathroom. While no dead cats were swung, I had plenty of room to move. I wish that there was a diary in the suite for guests to leave their memories and suggestions.
We will return!
