Our home in New York City

4.8 on March 26, 2015

We have been staying at Ivy Terrace for over 4 years. We go every year and it feels like home. We especially like the privacy and having a kitchen and everything right there. It is so nice to make our own breakfasts and not have to dine with strangers. It is like having an apartment in the city in one of the best neighborhoods too!

Peaceful Stay

Enjoyed my stay at Ivy Terrace. I was there for several weeks during the summer and felt right at home. The neighborhood was fantastic, close to all transportation, but not a noisy touristy area.The bed in the Victoria Suite was so comfortable and it was bright and sunny as well. Yes, it is on the 3rd floor with no elevator, but that was no problem for me. Jeff and Vinessa were there when I needed them, but not overbearing, which I appreciated. I hope to visit NYC again for work, and if I do I will certainly stay at Ivy Terrace B&B.

my home in NYC

4.0 on September 12, 2011

In the beautiful spring of 2011 I returned to NYC and chose to stay in the Ivy Terrace; simply because it feels good to me. I tend to make my decisions based on my gut feeling and thus Ivy Terrace it was again. Coming to a big city like New York, I need to have a little nest to get back to to refuel. So some space, a bathtub and a little kitchen are essential. Ivy Terrace offers all that and more. Your fridge is filled upon arrival and if you book early enough you can choose the rooms with terrace -no sea view though ;) Rooms are clean and if you have a problem or query Jeff and Vinessa are the best innkeepers you could wish for; trustworthy and kindhearted people! Even if things can always be more perfect, for me the overall feeling is most important. So next time I head for this exciting city, I will book my little haven of peace.

Just loved Ivy Terrace!

I stayed in the Victoria Suite at Ivy Terrace for six days and it felt like having my own place in a fantastic part of Manhattan. Museums, shopping, entertainment and fine dining are all within easy walking distance. The rooms are beautiful. Having a kitchen is a definite plus. I highly recommend Ivy Terrace and definitely plan to return.

Living like a New Yorker

4.4 on June 17, 2011

We stayed for a full week at the Ivy Terrace B&B in Midtown Manhattan and what a delight it was. The location was great (west side near Central Park and 5th Ave) and we were able to walk from the Upper East and West sides to the Theater District. And the lovely terrace where we enjoyed breakfast every day - how perfect to people watch and relax. Vanessa and Jeff were extremely accommodating, stocking the kitchen with everything we asked for. Jeff was always available when called and had good suggestions for jazz clubs. I'm a big coffee drinker and was afraid I wouldn't be satisfied with whatever was provided. Vanessa's Melitta blend proved me wrong - happily. I would not hesitate to stay at the Ivy Terrace on our next trip

A 5 star stay

5 on June 09, 2011

This is really the best "home from home" in NYC. After reading all the positive reviews, I expected something good, but it exceeded my expectations - not only are the rooms generous in size but individually and elegantly decorated to different themes. Ivy Terrace is on a quiet tree-lined avenue, very convenient for restaurants, shopping, the subway and Central Park. The fridge is stocked full with food, everything is thought of and to hand. It was a pleasure to come "home" each evening, or early morning! as it has a special character and charm. Vinessa and Jeff are the most helpful and friendly hosts. My only complaint is - there aren't any Ivy Terraces in other US cities - CH, Sheffield, England.

Zen stay in a Crazy city

3.6 on April 20, 2011

Hi, I had the chance to stay one week in the Zen room of Ivy Terrace B and B. It was a really great stay in a lovely room, everything was nice, higher than my expectations. The kitchen and bathroom are full equipped, it is amazing. Enough breakfast items are provided. I really enjoyed the time leaving as a New Yorker. Vinessa and Jeff are really kind, they can answer all the questions you have and are available to help you with anything you need. It would be with pleasure to go back to Ivy terrace for a future stay in New York city. Thanks a lot.

Perfect birthday getaway

Ivy Terrace was recommended to me, and I was certainly not disappointed. The facilities, decoration, kitchenette and provision of breakfast foods and coffee were fantastic, and the comfort such that I arrived back to my room each night feeling as if I were returning to my own studio apartment - two blocks from Bloomingdales! Security measures were good for a woman travelling alone. Good restaurants nearby, too. A wonderful place run by very, very nice people!

Rest and Rejuvenate at the Ivy Terrace

4.8 on April 12, 2011

It was an absolute pleasure to spend 7 days at the Ivy Terrace. When we weren't taking in all that New York City has to offer, we were resting and rejuvenating in our beautifully furnished Waverly Room. We were very happy with the location of Ivy Terrace. There is easy access to public transporation (buses and subway), shopping (if that is your thing), and if you enjoy walking, Central Park is about 10-15 minutes away. If you've ever had noisy neigbors at a hotel (loud talking, blaring television sets, doors that slam shut, you will not find them at the Ivy terrace. I so appreciated how quiet the other guests were on a daily basis. The best part of the stay is the attentiveness and "we aim to please" attitude of the Innkeepers, Vinessa and Jeff. They will take care of your every need. Knowing where we will stay when we return to New York is a wonderful feeling.

Fantastic Experience!

My Fiance and I stood for a few days in the Ivy Room celebrating our b-day and the experience was perfect. It truly is a home away from home and provided us with the comfort needed to relax and have a great time. The room was incredibly comfortable, the bed, pillows, overall space were just awesome and the adorable little terrace over looking the street really fit the scene perfectly. The kitchen was well stocked with great breakfast treats and the added convenience of great restaurants and activities easily accessible made it even more perfect. Water pressure in the shower was great!! I had a fantastic time and didn't want to leave. Jeff and Vinessa were awesome hosts and truly accommodating. My fiance and I have already decided that we will be staying there again next year!!

About the innkeepers

Vinessa has lived in New York for 32 years and worked as a professional actress after graduating from NYU Tisch school of the Arts. Ivy Terrace B&B is her creation and since her favorite things are travel and New York City, being a B&B owner is really a great gift. Jeff is not an actor, but has years of experience in the hospitality industry (same thing). Jeff loves to cook, and enjoys sharing his knowledge of New York with our guests.
