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 Manhattan

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.

Clean, great location, fine host

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed here. It is a studio unit on the second floor, in the back of the building. Very quiet, all the amenities provided as described. Linens and consumables (tissues, shampoo, etc.) refreshed every 4 days during an extended stay. Recommended restaurants and services nearby were top-notch. We will be back.

A wonderful Upper East Side nest

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the Dutch Room, & this time, we were joined by a friend who stayed in the Metropolitan Room. She loved her stay as much as we did. Besides the historically charming brownstone's great location on a tree-lined, quiet side-street in one of Manhattan's most appealing 'hoods, both character-filled studio apartments offer their own version of gracious style, warmth, & comfort, & are cozy havens to return to after exploring the non-stop wonders of NYC. Warren & his wife have thought of just about everything a guest could want, seem truly concerned about their guests, & are very kind & welcoming, as are their team of surrogate assistants. It's great to know we have no need to look any further for our ideal place to stay in Manhattan.

Owner's Response: Such a nice review, thanks so much. I would just note for others reading this that we are on the Upper WEST side, not East. Thanks again. Warren

Clean, Convenient, Quiet and a Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 day stay in the serene Dutch Room. The brownstone is located on a quiet street on the Upper West Side not far from many restaurants, shops, laundries, etc. as well as subway stop and bus stops, Central Park and the Natural History Museum. The room is spacious with a comfortable queen bed, desk, several chairs, a small table, couple of chests and a tv. It includes two closets (!), a mini kitchen outfitted with appliances and a small bathroom. All were very clean and since we stayed over a week, linens were changed half way through our rental. The two windows overlook a beautiful garden, thus the room is a quiet refuge from the city. Warren is a gracious host and when we arrived he fully explained the keys, locks, appliances, local services etc. As others have noted, the room is two flights up from the sidewalk therefore not for those with mobility issues. Highly recommended.

Great home away from home feel.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful but too short visit to the Upper West Side thanks mostly to the comfortable and welcoming accommodations and the thoughtfulness of our hosts, Warren and Susan. I loved being able to open the windows and let the cool air in. The bed was very comfortable and after a full day of walking it felt great to climb under the sheets which were so very soft. The extra touches such as the coffee, milk and juice left for us in the refrigerator, the bathrobes in the closet and the restaurant suggestions made our stay special. We will be back!
