My 4 night stay at the Ivy Terrace

4.2 on March 27, 2017

I stayed at the Ivy Terrace B&B New York after a wonderful, but long and exhausting, trip across the USA. My room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and had a very NY feel to it. I loved the old world charm in this 117 year old building. Vinessa and John were also charming, welcoming and helpful. The address is a great location walking distance to the Subway, Central Park, loads of restaurants and much more. I would definitely return to the Ivy Terrace in the event of returning to NY and recommend to family and friends. Maeve (Melbourne, Australia)

Great place for long weekend

4.0 on March 04, 2017

Had a great stay, unit was clean, as pictured. Making reservation was easy and once we arrived Jon was wonderful, helpful and asked what we wanted for breakfast. It was warm in the unit so we slept with windows opened and heard the street sounds but it wasn't too bothersome. In easy walking distance to the subway. Didn't mind the stairs and plenty of restaurants also in walking distance. Much. Better than staying in hotel!


Glad we found this B&B

4.2 on February 05, 2016

We were upgraded to the Rose Room and it fit the bill for our short stay in NYC. It's in a great location on the upper east side. We actually had to be at the Hospital for Special Surgery so it gave us access the all of the city amenities in that area while being convenient to the hospitals without worrying about crossing Manhattan in rush hour. The room had everything we needed from a comfortable bed to cable TV and breakfast items in the room. The price was a real value compared to NYC hotels. We hope to return when we can enjoy the city a little more


Hidden Gem!

4.0 on November 30, 2015

This place is a great option for experienced traveler's who want to avoid busy hotels. It's the perfect location for us when we visit family in NYC. These are essentially studio apartments (hotel room with a kitchenette), some nice nice outdoor terraces. The attention to detail is awesome and a pleasant surprise. The refrigerator is pre-stocked with a few items, and the kitchens overall are well-equipped and stocked. This hidden gem definitely has a cozy vibe!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Ivy Terrace B&B. Especially that you gave us 5 stars for service! As you mention, the rooms with terraces are Rose Room and Ivy Suite, they are our most popular rooms. Please recommend us to your friends and family that is the biggest compliment...

First Stay in New York

4.2 on November 01, 2015

This was our first time in New York and we were looking for something that would be close to all the sites either within walking or with the subway. The Ivy Terrace met those expectations. The room was clean with everything one would need in a B and B. Any of our requests were handle quickly and efficiently. The room rate was very reasonable for New York and the breakfast items were great. There are great restaurants close by as well as shopping.I would have no reservations on returning or recommending the Ivy Terrace.

Innkeeper Response
Jeff and I are thrilled that we met your expectations on your first stay in New York City. Our rates are reasonable and we try to treat all our guests with the personal service they deserve. Our building is 100 years old and in an amazing neighborhood, I am so glad you enjoyed your trip and look forward to seeing you again soon!!

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

4.6 on August 30, 2013

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!

5 on June 29, 2011

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
