A relação custo beneficio é muito boa! O predio é muito bem localizado, os apts são muito bons e os donos são super atenciosos. Ah e tem um detalhe muito especial: a dona é brasileira mas mora em NY há um tempão, ou seja, conhece tudo e nos deu várias dicas valiosíssimas, fez roteiros pra gente, nos muniu de vários mapas úteis e ainda nos deu boas indicações de compras e restaurantes, ou seja, tenho muitos motivos pra divulgar e indicar!

Great stay at West Townhouse

We so enjoyed our stay at West Townhouse. The room was perfect, the comfy, the bath modern and Monica and Larry were there if we needed them. We also liked being so close to the subway, Central Park and many fine neighborhood restaurants. Monica also arranged our limo to the airport and we were certianly pleased with the driver as well as the price. We will certainly return to the West Townhouse and recommend it to friends. Thank you Monica and Larry. Stan and Nancy

This is an absolutley fabulous location in NYC. It is easy to use the subway, grocery stores are close, restaurants are plentiful & very good. The rooms are very roomy, attractive & clean. The flowers & fruit that welcomed me are a nice touch. Monica & Larry are the best !! I recommend The West Townhouse to all my friends & family. I love it there & will return often !!

I wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. Booking all the way from Australia over the internet at times people are concerned what will it be like when I show up…….After such a long flight from Australia it was so easy to find your helpful assistance made it seemingly impossible to get lost. Thank you for that. The building was secure safe and easy to find even when at times we felt like we were lost in the big city. Shopping WOW all around restaurants a plethora to choose from so close. It was a breath of fresh air after a long day downtown seeing all the sites. I was wondering next year I was looking at planning to come for a month long work/leisure holiday my daughter is studying acting and would love to look at courses there as well I have been searching the net for a great course for book writing – would you happen to know any? Would love to return and stay with you again.

I stayed in the ground floor studio with my boyfriend, for a week during April. The room was immaculate, exactly as pictured, though pictures can't do justice to the charm of the place. Monica and Larry were very personable, but not intrusive. Monica in particular was a very helpful hostess, and was always available with tips for getting around the city. They attended to every need right away, and very graciously. The neighborhood around the townhouse is quiet, and offers everything that you need for an extended stay. A short walk takes you to Central Park or the Hudson, and everything else in town is just a few minutes by subway. I highly recommend the West, and will stay here again in the future, if this wonderful place isn't booked!

One word. Amazing! Monica was soo nice and helpful and great at giving advice on where to go and what to do. We loved the fresh fruit and flowers and how you put so much effort into absolutely everything, every last detail was perfect. Thank you so much for putting up with us and I would advise absolutely everyone to stay in this place if you're going to NYC. ps, amazing location - a couple blocks from central park with a subway station practically beside you :)

The room is very good. The bed and the pillows are very confortable. The street is very calm and close to a lot of very good restaurants, museums, central park, subway. The owners were always happy and available to help us. If I go to NY again westtownhouse will be my choice again.

Excellent place to stay in Manhattan

Monica and Larry are wonderful, friendly hosts, giving their guests a warm welcome, lots of information and offering a, clean, quiet and cosy 'home' in the big city. We hope to return one day to NY and we will certainly stay in the West Townhouse again, no doubt about that.
