WELL-APPOINTED BROWNSTONE STUDIO, EXCEPTIONALLY QUIET, BRIGHT

Upper West Side Studio Rental Photos and Description

Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

'The Dutch Room' is a 375 square foot Studio on the second floor of a 1896 Brownstone row house. We live on the first floor of this four story building and have one other VRBO Studio across the hall from this one.

There is one queen sized reproduction antique sleigh bed, choice 19th century antique furnishings, a handsome non-working fireplace, two very large windows facing north, a large desk, dining table, kitchen and bathroom with tub.

You will want to know that this apartment was completely gutted and fully renovated in the summer of 2012 with a completely new kitchen featuring Carrara marble countertops and Crema Marfil marble floors. The bathroom and kitchen are small but comfortable and fully appointed. The towels are by Ralph Lauren.

The magnificent bed is made up with Ralph Lauren bedding and there are four Laura Ashley brand pillows, each of a different firmness.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • not suitable for children
  • non smoking only

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 usually 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.

Warren Ashworth purchased this studio in 1987

We have two VRBO units in this brownstone, each across the hall from the other. The other unit, The Metropolitan Room, is listed under VRBO 327144. Families and friends often like to book both. They are both studios and have the same rental rates.

High ceilings with lovely ceiling fans, big windows, quiet, beautifully furnished with antiques except the bed and chairs which are new and clean.

Unlike many listings these days, The Dutch 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.

Peace and quiet in the heart of the city

My third and without doubt the best visit in NYC. Location was excellent: subway and several bus lines just a few blocks away. Great neighborhood: the Central and Riverside Park, the Museum Mile and local restaurants and shops nearby. You cannot but love the Zabar's btw. The apartment was clean and quiet and had everything one could need for a week's stay. The wi-fi worked perfectly. Checking in and out was well organised, the owners welcoming and helpful. If you want to get the feel of living like a true New Yorker and explore the city avoiding the worst tourist traps - this is the way to do it.

The owners are delightful folks, and both rooms--the Dutch Room this time, and the Metropolitan Room on a visit last October--are wonderful. In each case, the bed is comfortable, the room is quiet, the decor is tasteful with an eye to remaining faithful to the charm of the old brownstone, there are books to read and good reading lights, the kitchen is fully equipped, and arriving guests find the fridge stocked with milk, juice, and a bag of Zabar's ground coffee!

We stayed four nights in the Dutch Room of this brownstone which is located on the Upper West Side between Columbus and Amsterdam, a short walk to Central Park and numerous restaurants and shops. The room was just as described-very nicely decorated and equipped to meet all a traveler's needs. Lots of light and very quiet-not always the case in NYC lodging. The owners are very easy to deal with and we would definitely stay here again.

Everything we wanted

We had the best weekend in NY largely due to this fantastic room. We had tried to rent it before but didn't plan far enough in advance, this time we made our reservation early and are so happy we did. From the minute we arrived, everything was perfect! Every detail in the apartment has been thought of and tended to from the comfortable bed, beautiful sheets, towels and to our surprise luxurious robes hanging in the closet. There is a tub and although it is NY apt size - we were able to take a nice hot soak after a cold snowy day exploring the city.

Our hosts left coffee (delicious) milk and juice in the fridge and we were happy to have a place to save and reheat left overs from the fantastic meals out. The neighborhood is delightful; I loved Joe's coffeeshop just a few blocks away and we were happy to find many vegan and organic options nearby.

All I can say is plan ahead if you want to stay in this beautifully kept and furnished apt on the upper west side... we certainly will!!!!! Thanks again for a perfect stay!

Lovely accommodation indeed. On a quiet street, close to transportation, shops, restaurants. Tastefully and thoughtfully appointed studio looks just like the photos, hosts are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I would definitely stay here again.
