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.

EXCELLANT LOCATION. ADEQUATE SHELTER

  • 2 of 5
I selected this place based on the high reviews and am a bit puzzled by the praises. The West Side location is fabulous and we enjoyed many fine meals in the local restaurants. The studio apartment is adequate only. The entrance and stairway are very dirty and dingy. I usually stretch out and do yoga in the mornings but would not go any where near the carpet in the room because it was rather dirty and should be replaced. With a new carpet, fresh coat of paint and some new bed linens this place would be a 5 star. As it is now, it is tired. The host seemed somewhat disinterested and we needed to ask for fresh towels mid-week. Nothing was offered. When we were leaving the host ran into my husband and did not even inquire as to how our stay was and if the accommodations were to our liking. Had I been asked, I would have shared this information verbally rather than posting a negative review. Not a return place for us.

WE LOVE IT!

  • 5 of 5
We will be back to Manhattan and we would like to stay again in this lovely and clean apt! We can highly recommend it. This was our first experience with renting an apt in Manhattan and we would definitely do it again. So much better than staying in a hotel, so quiet and clean, authentic, secure and so beautiful furniture! The Metro is only a few minutes away, best neighborhood and Warren and Susan are so complaisant and helpful. What should I say more than: I want to come back to New York and stay in the wonderful Dutch Room! Thank You so much for all!! (Sorry for

PEACE AND QUIET IN THE HEART OF THE CITY

  • 5 of 5
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.

THIS VRBO PROPERTY IS A GEM

  • 5 of 5
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!
