Overview

Manhattan 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 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.

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

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.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location close to Central Park, and transport. Surrounded by great places to eat and convenience stores. Roomy, and well appointed. Warren couldn't have been more helpful to ensure our stay was nothing short of brilliant.

Excellent choice.

  • 5 of 5

The Studio apartment was perfect for our annual NYC visit and just like the pictures. The location is excellent and the accommodations are everything we needed to be most comfortable while recuperating from our daily adventures. I would recommend this unit to anyone who is traveling with a spousepartner or solo.

Spacious & Comfortable NY Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. The OJ, coffee & milk in the refrigerator were nice touches and much appreciated in the morning to start the day. The brownstone was quiet and felt very safe. The owners were responsive and easy to deal with. We look forward to staying here again soon.

A WEST SIDE CHARMER

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, roomy, well-equipped, clean and quiet : what's not to like if you enjoy attention to detail and a lovingly restored period room? With friendly and helpful hosts and a great Upper West Side location : shops, restaurants, bars are just around the corner and Central Park and the subway just one block away.

We'd happily stay again.

A wonderful gem in a great area of NY

  • 5 of 5

We spent nearly 2 weeks in this lovely old brownstone on upper west side of NY, delighting in the overlooking garden, the big bedroom, the attention to detail so that we had everything we needed and the lovely Cynthia who looked after us so well while Warren and Susan were away. What a find! Very convenient for all tourist activities and a quiet, safe neighbourhood. The location was superb, close to the metro ( buses and subway). Good local shops and great restaurants. The wifi was refereshingly fast, everything in the apartment worked ( not so with other places we stayed in!) and we had such a great stay. Beforehand, Warren answered all our queries promptly and helpfully. Also, a very reasonable price for central NY. Loved it!!
