Overview

About the property

Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

'The Dutch Room' is a 375 square foot Studio on the second floor of a 1881 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 Matouk Towels.

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

About Warren Ashworth

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

Why Warren Ashworth chose Upper West Side

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.

What makes this studio unique

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.

Great location - Close to the subway and Central Park.

  • 4 of 5

This was my first visit to New York so I was a bit nervous and did not know what to expect. But the studio was in a quiet, safe neighbourhood. There was lots of restaurants and a great grocery store nearby. The subway was only 2 blocks away and we were surprised how fast and easy it was to get around New York. The only thing we were not prepared for was the steep stairs getting into the building and going up to the first floor to our studio. By the end of our stay we were definitely in better physical shape!

Very much enjoyed our stay. Susan and Warren were very helpful and live in the building. Charming quiet neighborhood with good access to 2 different subway lines and several bus lines. Spacious, comfortable and attractive studio. . We hope it will be available for our next trip to NY.

Hotels are over-rated...

  • 5 of 5

When you can live a little bit like a real New Yorker in your own Brownstone studio apartment. That is what you get when you stay with Warren and Susan. We mostly interacted with Warren who was extremely welcoming, accommodating and helpful. The Dutch room was very nice with all the amenities you could want and more. The kitchenette is really well stocked. The bed was nice and the room was quiet and comfortable. If you want the overly posh/sanitized feel of a luxury hotel, this might not be for you. For us, it was perfect. I haven't even mentioned the location. It is situated within a short walk of two subway stations, Central park, museums and lots of restaurants and shopping. Our walks everywhere were safe and easy. It is definitely a place we'd love to return to when we come back to New York. Thank you to the Ashworth's for providing such a wonderful alternative to a hotel.

Just right for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Dutch Room on the UWS in NYC. Close to several subway lines, the park, clubs, Zabar's, restaurants, market. Great neighborhood. Felt very safe coming home late at night. We enjoyed making coffee, tea and a little breakfast in the kitchen while planning our attack on NYC each day. A great added flavor of NYC to stay in a classic walk-up brownstone from the turn of the century! Thanks, Warren.
