Great place to stay. Comfortable sleeping 3. Friendly owner, very helpful. Close to subway, river & Central Park. We felt very safe in this neighbourhood. Light & airy apartment, high ceilings, & lounge large lounge area.TV's in bedroom & lounge. Could do with a kettle. Would definitely stay again.

As always you never know what you are going to get until you get there. I will write this up and break down the good and the bad. GOOD: At first impression the place was nice. The neighborhood and location is great. The room is huge and more of studio apartment. The bed was moderately comfortable. If you choose to...

I have never claimed that the parking in the streets of New York City is "free". It is occasionally restricted to provide for periodic street cleaning, utterly out of my control. The oversight of the missing soap I'll plead guilty to - I normally have special little soaps with my logo printed on the wrapper. The (new) queen size sofa/bed...

We recently spent 8 days at the Brownstone Bed and No Breakfast located at 110 W. 81st St. on the upper west side of Manhattan. Initially we stayed in unit 3 which is a studio apartment featuring a queen size sofa bed and a loft bed reached via a spiral staircase. There is a small kitchen with a dishwasher, stove,...

I'm glad that you enjoyed our great location, but very disappointed to hear that you thought our amenities are in need of an upgrade, Samuel. We're constantly working to improve our facilities, but haven't currently made as much progress as I would have liked. Thank you for the feedback here on TripAdvisor. Next time you're in the city, I would...

I'm happy that I had the opportunity to upgrade you, but disappointed to hear that there were a few things off during your visit, Marie. It seems like I was pretty close to providing you with a great experience, and I'll work hard to make things perfect next time. I hope you'll give us another chance next time! Sincerely, Alec,...

Location is ideal, especially for families, lots of activities nearby. Owner was flexible with our early arrival and late departure. But, we encountered far too many problems, especially when paying $430/night. The apartment was advertised with air conditioning in the bedroom and living room. Upon arrival, there was no AC in the living room nor was there any explanation or...

I had just returned from the hospital to greet these guests and so had not had time to have an air conditioner installed in the living room (the one in the bedroom was in) for one day. For this, I am sorry. (The apartment living room now has a brand-new Fedders AC). The complaint that the windows could not be...

It has been several years, '08 to be exact, since we stayed there but I just saw this on TA so had to write a review. The location was just what we were looking for. An apartment in an upper middle class neighborhood where one could just settle in and pretend to be a New Yorker for awhile. We were...

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain.
