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.

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

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.

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.

Wonderful visit

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!

This is a very nice and cozy apartment to stay in Manhattan for couples or a single person. The owners are sweet, friendly people. The neighborhood is nice and it is easy to get around town from there.

We had a perfect stay here. The location was the best and so were our hosts and the apartment.
Comfortable bed, very handy little kitchen, Internet worked perfectly.
This will be our home in New York.
Thank you, Warren and Susan for making such a lovely place for us.

Room was nice, but small. No kitchen table and no stove were disappointing. The street noise was high and heavy in the early morning hours. Asked for a 1 hour late check out and were declined. This was inconvenient as we were not flying out until 3:30 and had to check out at 11am. Other than that, owner was friendly and helpful. Room was clean except for an old dirty washcloth that had been left hanging in the shower. Kitchen supplies were plentiful, but only 2 towels were supplied for a 5 night stay. We probably could have asked for more towels, but weren't offered them. Overall, fair experience, but we will probably stay in the SOHO area again on our next stay as we found the owners in that area more accomodating and the noise level was much more acceptable.
