The West Townhouse is a delightful place to stay in nyc!
on July 05, 2015
Staying in this nice, charming and very cosy victorian style apartment was a wonderful experience. It felt like home from the very first moment. Also because Monica is a very warm and welcoming host. She gave us great tips and suggestions on what to do and see and she was always very kind to help us for further information. The apartment kitchen makes it even possible to cook a little dinner or prepare breakfast. There are lots of nice little restaurants close by. It is also a perfect location to visit the city. The metro ist just a few minutes from the house and it drives you easily to the city center. It was especially nice for us to stay in a residential area away from the center of the city but close to central park, where we enjoyed running in the morning. Moreover, the apartment gave us wonderful and quite moments of rest in between the exiting city exploration. We stayed in the room 4F which was very comfortable for two people. We would highly recommend the West Townhouse to anyone who wants to visit nyc and experience the lifestyle and comfort oft he Upper West Side. - We will be back!
Great Location and Friendly Hosts

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a week at The West Townhouse. The location was perfect, if you want to be away from the crowds and yet close to the Metro, Central Park, and some good eateries. Monica and Larry are great hosts. If you need anything they are available, and yet you have privacy, like having your own place for a week. My husband and I would definitely return, hopefully soon, as there is so much to explore in NYC--the city that never sleeps!!!

Lovely, large, well furnished, spotlessly clean, elegantly characterful brownstone apartment, with good kitchen and very comfortable bed in a great location. (Air con would probably struggle a little in summer).
Our New York week was exactly what we hoped for and more. We wanted to experience the city from a real neighbourhood rather than a hermetically sealed high-rise hotel room, and that is exactly what this location, and a great apartment provided; excellent delis and restaurants just around the corner and a large and beautiful room to retreat to. Any concerns about city noise (our apartment faced the street) disappeared behind efficient double glazing at night.
The Upper West Side is vibrant, wealthy and well established, and its bohemian past still colours its atmosphere - all of which sets it above the relative superficiality of the trendy developing areas and the slightly anodyne aloofness of the Upper East Side. Difficult to imagine a better location from which to enjoy the city and Central Park.
Monica gets the balance exactly right in terms of the advice and help she offers and the considerable privacy the apartments provide. Her warm welcome is genuine and Studio 4F instantly became our home from home for the week.
We did most of the touristy things people do on a first visit and enjoyed them hugely - but returning to our West Townhouse apartment each day gave us an altogether more rounded connection to the city, and something more special than the category ratings can accommodate. If and when we pay a return visit to New York we’ll be hoping Monica and Larry are still offering apartments in The West Townhouse.

Great Location and host

Great location and fantastic host, Monica. 2 blocks from subway and Central Park. We are 3 very independent women but when we needed a bit of guidance, our host was always available for great advice. Always felt very safe in our neighbourhood and lots of affordable restaurants close by. Great shopping right in our neighbourhood. Will definately will return. So much to see and do, one week is not enough and we were going from 8 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Ficamos hospedados por 8 dias no The West Townhouse e foi uma ótima experiência. O apartamento era amplo, com aquecimento, limpo e confortável. Certamente considerarei esta opção para futuras viagens e indicarei para amigos.
Live like a New Yorker on the Upper West Side

We just got home from a wonderful 5 days in New York. Staying at the West Townhouse was perfect. The apartment was clean and charming, thick towels. beautiful sheets, a great location, and QUIET! Monica is lovely and we were delighted to use this as our home base. We ate breakfasts in, but went out for lunches and diners at great places, all within a block of the apartment. If you want to be a true New Yorker, everyone delivers. And you're only 1 block from an entrance to Central Park, and two blocks from the subway. We definitely hope to come back and stay again.

Apartamento maravilhoso! Amplo, confortável, limpo, muito bem conservado. Localização muito boa, rua silenciosa e residencial, próximo à restaurantes, farmácia, pequenos mercados, enfim, tudo o que se precisa. Recepção e assistência espetaculares!! Recomendo muito!

Inmejorable opción en Nueva York
on May 15, 2015
Un departamento verdaderamente exquisito, impecable, del mejor gusto y en una zona excelente, en la que se disfruta de todo lo necesario (bares, restaurantes, mercados, transporte cercano), sin dejar de ser a la vez tranquilo y residencial. Mónica es una anfitriona cálida y atenta a todos los detalles, y si bien es exigente con los horarios de entrada y salida, no lo es menos con la calidad de lo que ofrece, a un precio que simplemente no tiene competencia. Realmente inmejorable (salvo respecto a las formas de pago: para nosotros, desde Argentina, con las limitaciones bancarias que rigen aquí, se nos complica abonar de otro modo que no sea con tarjeta de crédito), y ampliamente recomendable.

A Home Away From Home
on May 14, 2015
My husband and I were thrilled to find this lovely accommodation in the Upper West Side. It is located on a quiet residential street but just around the corner from whatever you need on Amsterdam or a short walk in the other direction to Columbus. This brownstone is well-maintained with many of the original features of the house intact. We stayed in the downstairs suite and were happy with everything about it. The apartment was immaculately clean and the kitchen is well-equipped. Last, but not least, Monica was the perfect hostess. She was both very helpful and very friendly. Really, we couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations if we'd stayed at the Ritz! However, staying in this wonderful apartment gave us the opportunity to feel like real New Yorkers during our stay in Manhatten.
