Our Favorite NYC Getaway Place

4.6 on October 30, 2017

This was our second stay at the West Townhouse. This is a special place - wonderful accommodations and a perfect location, just a few short blocks from Central Park and Riverside Park and the 86th Street subway stop. Best of all, there are so many spectacular restaurants within walking distance on Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues. Monica is a gracious host and helpful with restaurant suggestions and things to do in NYC. We highly recommend this place if you want to feel like a local New Yorker who lives in a beautiful Upper West Side apartment. Debbie & Tom

Não há lugar melhor para se hospedar. Excelente localização, studios completos, roupas de cama e banho de primeira qualidade. Cozinha equipada com tudo há de melhor. Monica e Larry são super simpáticos e atenciosos, com várias discas sobre NY.

Excellents hosts, accommodations and location!

5 on October 26, 2017

We stayed at the West Townhouse for a week late September into early October 2017. Rooms: This is a beautifully maintained building. We stayed in Suite 2 which is on the lowest floor. We were very comfortable in this roomy apartment that has a kitchen and a separate bedroom, perfect for two people. One thing we also liked was the amount of storage throughout; we had plenty of room for clothes and toiletries. Felt private and safe. We used the kitchen for breakfast every day. Service: Monica spent well over an hour with us when we arrived, showing us around the apartment and mostly explaining the local area for restaurants, grocery stores and suggestions for sightseeing. We think her hospitality is exceptional - warm and friendly. Any request we made or question we asked throughout our week was always taken care of and/or answered. We met Larry on the day we left and he was as friendly and helpful. We left with a completely positive impression of them both. Value: We felt the value of the apartment was excellent! Cleanliness: The apartment looked as if it had just been painted. It was immaculately clean...everywhere! What a pleasure! Onsite Dining: While there is a kitchen, which we did use, there are SO many restaurants in the neighborhood, easily accessible by foot. We went to different one every day for at least one meal, and every one was very good, and we barely scratched the surface of what was available. We frequented Zabar's Market three times just a few blocks away, what fun experience that was! The subway is two blocks away and Central Park and Riverside Park an easy walk of a couple of blocks as well. We loved the location! We will be coming back to New York again and we will most definitely stay at The West Townhouse again! BC & NMC

Best choice we've made

5 on October 01, 2017

Monica is a very friendly and helpful host and is really good with hints and advises for the stay. The room was quiet and clean and very cosy and home-like. Just makes you feel like a real New Yorker. The neighborhood still feels very NYC-like, far from the neo-commercialized places like the Upper East Side. It has a lot of nice and atmospheric, very familiar little places to eat and have a drink. So: Best choice we've made for NYC and highly recommendable!

Sanctuary in NYC

4.6 on September 04, 2017

While we came about Monica and Larry's lovely 4R apartment under unusual circumstances, I feel sure that our experience would be much the same at any time of year, or NYC visit. This apartment was not only elegant and comfortable but very clean. The excellent quality sheets and towels, were meticulously maintained. But, all of this was accompanied by the grace of our hostess, Monica who was warm, hospitable, and reposnsive whenever we had questions. We look forward to another visit in the future. Deirdre J. and Joseph M.

Wonderful stay in New York Ciity

5 on August 24, 2017

My wife and I spent 7 nights at this outstanding apartment. The whole expoerence was outstanding. The booking process was simple. Monica promptly answered all,of our questions. Our arrival and checking was also stress free and simple. The communication with Monica made it very simple. She spent time helping us plan our stay which was also extremely helpful. The apartment was outstanding very clean and was decorated nicely. The location could not have been Better. The area is loaded with restaurants, stores , bars etc which made the stay enjoyable, it is located very close to the subway so getting anywhere in New York was a breeze. The neighborhood is outstanding only a few blocks from Central Park. This was the prefect place for our stay in the city and we are eager to return soon. I can't imagine a better apartment or location in the city

New York Trip

5 on August 02, 2017

This was our first visit to NYC. Before and during our visit Monica was excellent and very helpful with all our arrangements and details. The townhouse was lovely, beautifully restored and presented, nice and quiet, yet you felt like you were amongst the locals going about their everyday lives. When we return to NYC one day we would definitely love to return to The West Townhouse. Thanks again Monica

A wonderful apartment in the Upper West Side

4.0 on July 23, 2017

We stayed at The West Townhouse for a week in June. Our studio faced the street, yet we were suprised at how quiet it was. We would often sit on the couch and listen to the birds and the sound of children playing. The apartment was really comfortable, with a very comfortable bed, lovely furniture, kitchen and bathroom. Monica was a great host and provided us with so much useful information about places to visit, transport, restaurants etc. The location was just brilliant. 5 minutes to the subway and Central Park and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. It had a real village atmosphere and we really felt safe and at home there. Ann & Jon

Excellent room & facilities

4.2 on July 07, 2017

My wife and I stayed in Suite 2 for nearly six weeks and grew very fond of the place - very clean, very comfortable and very quiet. Also secure. And if ever we had any questions they were answered either immediately or within the hour by the very helpful Monica or Larry. The room is at the back of the house next to a quiet garden. Room has heating and aircon, both of which workd, though for most of the time we didn't need either. The location suited us perfectly too - with the subway a couple of blocks one way or another, and buses; also being close to Central Park gave us a lovely walk every day. So close to Broadway too, and numerous restaurants, not least of which was French Roast which we visited regularly. Zabar's is also close by. If ever we are in NYC again this is the place for us! We look forward to it! John F

Haven on the UWS

4.8 on May 22, 2017

Perfect in all aspects; location, quality of accommodation and wonderful hospitality. The location is hard to beat. So close to the parks, subway and countless restaurants while in a beautiful and quiet street. We stayed in an apartment overlooking the street. Monica and Larry have done a wonderful job of maintaining and furnishing the space and we will make it our home whenever we are in NY. Good kitchen facilities was a real bonus for the nights we didn't head out. We were already sold on the neighbourhood from previous trips and now we have a beautiful haven to head back to. Monica was a great host who provided a very thorough introduction to the property when we arrived and had plenty of tips on where to eat, buy groceries etc in the neighbourhood. Communication throughout booking and while we were there was very easy and quick. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect Location, Outstanding Hosts

4.4 on May 16, 2017

My husband and I stayed in Studio #1 for 1 week in April 2017. We are repeat visitors to NYC and the West Townhouse rates as my favorite place of all the many places we have stayed. This is an owner-occupied, lovingly cared for charming upper - west - side townhouse, on a relatively quiet street. This listed place does not serve breakfast, but who needs that when there are so many places to shop and eat in the neighborhood? There are 4 rental units here, 2 apartments and 2 studios. Our studio made a fine home base for our week long adventures in NYC, always happy to come "home" and hang out a while. The hosts were happy to help with any information we needed but also respected our independent ways. They seem to love their city! One has to plan ahead to be able to book the West Townhouse because there are only 4 rental units and the booking is not an automated process. Guests must pre-pay and they do not take credit card as payment. Butf you would like to experience an authentic upper-west side experience from a clean, secure townhouse with character and style the West Townhouse can't be beat.

Perfect UWS apt!

4.0 on April 26, 2017

This UWS apt felt like home during our 9-days stay in NYC. The location was perfect, just two blocks from Central Park (so close to the MET and Natural History museum), one block from subway... Everything was so close and the apt itself was delightful. We appreciate a lot the service it was provided to us, as the owners gave us plenty of advice and suggestions that were really useful. They let us stay at the apt until we had to leave to the airport and even they booked a cab for us, so we didn't had to worry about anything. Outstanding! We will suggest this B&B to all of our friends with no doubt, and I hope we will go back soon!

Home away from home in NYC!

5 on March 14, 2017

We stayed at The West Townhouse for the second time in Feb 2017. It is the most wonderful place to stay and Monica and Larry, the hosts are so welcoming and helpful. The rooms are exactly as pictured and fresh flowers and fruit await your arrival. The decor is beautiful and the suite's cleanliness is second to none, there is a well appointed kitchen but with great restaurants so close by we didn't use it . The townhouse is on a picture perfect, leafy New York street and everything you need is with in walking distance and Central Park is just 2 blocks away. A 10 minute subway ride takes you straight to Midtown but it's always so nice to return to the lovely Upper West Side after a busy sight-seeing day. We can't wait to return. :)

Our 60th Wedding Anniversary

4.2 on March 14, 2017

The studio was beautiful, lovely furniture, antique details,a beautiful in a great location. It is convenient to a number of attraction and also the subway, which helped make our stay more enjoyable. Monica and Larry could not have been more gracious, and they are two very interesting people whom we enjoyed conversing with.

Magical Stay!

5 on December 30, 2016

My new husband Igor and I spent our Honeymoon at the West Townhouse. We stayed in Suite 2 it was exactly as pictured on the website. The accomodations were comfortable clean and absolutely charming. Our hosts Monica and Larry are welcoming! The location is perfect...close to everything yet quiet and safe. We live on Long Island The West Townhouse had a wonderful neighborhood feel. We have told everyone we know about this little piece of heaven. We cannot wait to return. Thank you again for everything, (Fresh flowers in the vase as well)

A Jewel in Upper West Side

4.4 on November 18, 2016

We spent a week in this lovely studio, perfectly situated in the heart of Upper West Side NYC. Monica&Larry are extremely nice hosts, helpful, giving good advice where to shop, to eat or to got sightseeing. The facilities are excellent, the furniture match style of the old town house. Very "gemütlich" - we felt very much at home and can highly recommend this individual jewel.

Wonderful apartment in a perfect location!

4.8 on November 10, 2016

This studio apartment was perfect for 2 people. It was beautifully updated and decorated. Our hostess was very helpful and knowledgeable. After many trips to the city, this location was our favorite. This area of the UWS contains fabulous restaurants only blocks away from the apartment. Grocery stores are close as well. The 85th street Central Park entrance is convenient as well. We highly recommend this group of apartments and plan to return soon.

Awesome 11 night New York Stay

4.8 on November 10, 2016

Our first trip to New York, Larry and Monica were outstanding hosts. so much info on arrival, really helped us find everything we need to get around New York and great restaurants to eat every night. The brownstone apartment was in a great location, easy to walk to restaurants and subway, we even walked along the river to Town. There are also gourmet supermarkets close by to buy your own food to use in apartment. Felt we experienced a little of Upper West Manhattan living. We slept really well and the apartment was very clean and well looked after. Plenty of space in the one bedroom apartment, bathroom was lovely and plenty of hot water etc. I believe you get that special personal touch on your holiday staying here. Enjoy you won`t be disappointed Graham and Sue x

A gem in New York

3.8 on May 24, 2016

My husband and I had a fantastic stay in this accommodation recently. We were there for 10 days but would have liked to have stayed much longer. Larry was a marvellous and highly informed host (we didn't meet Monica as she was away) and just a genuinely lovely man. The accommodation was very quiet and homely. We had everything we needed - the bed was comfortable and pretty and the apartment was charming.

Prédio charmosos e muito bem localizado

5 on July 10, 2015

Mônica e Larry são pessoas fantásticas. O The West Town House fica localizado em excelente área da cidade (restaurantes diversos, metrô há uma quadra, Central Park há duas quadras) e oferece o aconchego do ambiente familiar com a privacidade de um hotel - tudo isso a preços muito honestos. Certamente da próxima vez que formos a NY ficaremos por lá novamente. Rosa & Adriano.

We loved to stay in The West Townhouse

5 on July 06, 2015

We stayed 10 nights and it was wonderful . The apartment was great, clean and large.It was very close to the subway and all you need was near. Monica received us with all the attention.We recommend everyone to stay in The West Townhouse.

The West Townhouse is a delightful place to stay in nyc!

4.8 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

4.4 on June 28, 2015

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!!!

Home form Home in NYC

4.0 on June 10, 2015

The basics: 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). The experience: 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. Mick and Debbie (UK)

Great Location and host

4.4 on June 09, 2015

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.


4.4 on May 25, 2015

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

5 on May 24, 2015

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.

Great location and accommodations

3.6 on May 22, 2015

The apartment was clean and comfortable. Monica and Larry are great hosts.

Experiência maravilhosa!

5 on May 17, 2015

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! Monica P Mello

Inmejorable opción en Nueva York

4.8 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. Fabian y Gabriela

A Home Away From Home

5 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.


5 on April 21, 2013

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

5 on November 28, 2011

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

A slice of home in NYC

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 !! Beth from Atlanta, GA

A must for everyone travelling to NYC!

4.4 on September 07, 2011

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.


4.8 on May 12, 2011

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!

Lauren and Madeleine's stay

5 on October 16, 2010

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 :)

Wonderfull B&B

4.6 on September 09, 2010

We had a great time in NY, Monica and Larry are very friendly and helpful. The apartment was perfect located for us, only 2 blocks away from the subway in a nice neighbourhood with a lot of charming restaurants. It was nice to come home and relax. We recommend The West Townhouse to everybody how want's a great stay in a great city. Bob & Jessica ( Belgium)

great price, great stay

4.6 on September 01, 2010

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

5 on August 17, 2010

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.

Estar em casa, em Nova Iorque!

Muito bem localizado, apartamentos lindos, bem montados e cercados de tudo que precisávamos para ser felizes.

Best B & B

5 on August 10, 2010

I could not have imagined a better location, comfortable, clean and welcoming place to stay while in NY. I'll never go back to a hotel.

Fabulous NYC Townhouse

5 on July 14, 2010

We went mid "heatwave". The suite was cool, clean, spacious. We loved the location, the innkeepers were gracious and helpful. We were pleased from beginning to end. Can't wait to return.

A great place to stay in the Upper West SIde

4.4 on July 14, 2010

This is a great place to stay in the Upper West side. We found that it was an ideal base from which to explore Manhattan. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is in easy walking distance to the Subway and Central Park. There are grocery stores, restaurants and laundries close by. The hosts (Monica and Larry) made us feel very welcome and were very helpful in providing information about the local area and the city generally. We enjoyed our stay in the West Town house very much.

Wonderful location

5 on June 29, 2010

My wife and I had an excellent vacation at the West Townhouse. Larry and Monica were wonderful hosts and the apartment was clean and comfortable. We took advantage of the kitchen and were able to cook quite a few meals rather than go out everyday for food. The location was perfect. We were only a block from the subway and a couple of blocks to Central Park. The Museum of Natural History was very close, too. There were many great restaurants and shopping less than a block away. Plus, there were plenty of grocery stores close by. The neighborhood was extremely safe and we felt very comfortable walking around at any time of the night. I am a very light sleeper and there was no street noise, since it is a quiet street. I would recommend staying at this townhouse to anyone visiting New York. It is so much of a better value than a hotel, plus the hosts are wonderful and friendly. James and Dida

The West Town House

4.8 on June 26, 2010

Larry and Monica are delightful, very accomodating and work hard to ensure their guests are comfortable. Our unit was very clean and most importantly there were no surprises. Highly recommend The West Townhouse as a wonderful home away from home

Highly recommended

4.4 on June 22, 2010

Monica was a charming and helpful host. Our room was spacious, attractive, quiet and spotless, with a comfy bed. The area is convenient and convivial: it was nice to be staying in a neighbourhood rather than a tourist area, and within easy reach of shops, restaurants and subways (and Central Park).

Great return visit

5 on June 21, 2010

We recently concluded our second stay at The West Townhouse. We love the home-like setting. Like having our own apartment, but cheaper than a decent hotel. Great upper west side location, near Central Park, #1 subway, Museum of Natural History etc etc. By the way, there is no dining, but there does not appear to be a way to say N/A, so I just rated that excellent too.

The West Townhouse made our trip!

4.8 on June 19, 2010

I am so grateful to have stumbled upon their website (and been able to book) before our first trip to NYC. The room was very nice and clean and we couldn't have asked for a nicer neighborhood to stay in. It was great coming home to The West Townhouse after a full day/night of busy sightseeing because it was so quiet compared to the thick of downtown and other areas. The neighborhood has a lot if quaint, cute restaurants and shops also. We will definitely stay there again if we ever go back to NYC! THANKS!!

Better than any hotel in Manhattan!

4.8 on June 18, 2010

We loved everything about our stay at West Townhouse, the location, the accommodations and particularly the great care and pride the owners take in making their guests feel comfortable and at home.

West Townhouse, A Treasure in the Heart of the City that Never Sleeps

4.8 on January 19, 2010

Monica & Larry, "Our visit to New York City was made even more special because we located your beautiful B&B for lodging." What a wonderful treasure! You have a lovely brownstone in the heart of a city that never sleeps, yet we found the sleeping to be quiet, peaceful and incredibly restful. Monica, your little "touches" like fresh fruits and flowers say "Welcome strangers, our home is your home". Thank you for that, and for your graciousness from the first email, to our last day. Oh, and please share with Larry, that his playing the beautiful music on the piano in the evening, was so enjoyable. I only wish I could have stayed longer to hear him play. You will come highly recommended to anyone needing a pleasant, clean, quiet and wonderful hospitable respite." Jeanine & Ron Muir Sahuarita, AZ

we love this place.

4.8 on August 13, 2009

My husband and I stayed in the studio for 4 days last October and absolutely loved every minute- i have such happy memories. West Townhouse is a perfect location- great restaurants and a quick walk through Central Park to the Met. The apartments are beautiful and comfortable- and the hosts couldn't be nicer! We can't wait to go back this January. -Shelly and Eric

A wonderful home away from home!

4.8 on July 26, 2009

I had a fantastic time both stays on the Upper West Side. I felt completely at home and loved the touch of flowers and fresh fruit. Thank you Larry and Monica for your continued kindness. I am looking forward to many future stays in your townhouse.

Awesome Affordable Place

5 on May 31, 2009

This was our 2nd visit and we plan to return again in Nov. The place is immaculate and convenient. Larry and Monica are great hosts. Quiet neighborhood for NYC. Beautiful decor as well. Absolutely wonderful place to stay.

Great place to stay in UWS

4.2 on May 15, 2009

We stayed for 7 nights in October 2008 and we will go back this year. Very clean and confortable place to stay in an excellent location.

Upper West Side treasure

We selected the West Townhouse based on location, website and excellent email communication with the owners. The studio was immaculate and twice the size of the room at a nearby hotel we stayed at previously. Monica and Larry are wonderful hosts. Nice amenities like fresh fruit and plenty of brochures for local attractions and restaurants. Easy walk to wonderful restaurants, Central Park, and the subway. We are excited to be returning in the summer for a longer stay.

A Real Find

This is the perfect place to stay in NY when visiting the city. We stayed for 5 days in the summer of 2008 and couldn't get over our good fortune. We knew we wanted to be on the upper west side so we took a chance and from the moment we arrived we knew this would be our first choice everytime we come back. Larry and Monica are the perfect hosts, the building is beautifully renovated and cared for and you can't beat the location. Bravo!

What a find!

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights in May, 2008. The large studio room exceeded expections, complete with fireplace, oil paintings and high ceilings! The bathroom and kitchenette were beautiful and very clean. The neighborhood is convenient and not touristy. I used to live in Manhattan and I felt like I was again! I hope they now accept checks or credit cards, but otherwise I could not be more pleased!

We stayed for 5 nights in September 2008 --and would happily go back. Our spacious and elegant studio room overlooked the leafy street : great to be on the Upper West Side surrounded by a huge range of eating places, shops, coffee shops etc. Central Park just 5-10 minutes away on foot. Buses and a choice of subway stations equally close, so it's easy to get back here after a day's sightseeing and relax in the cool and calm atmosphere of this lovely house.We were made to feel very much at home.

Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay!

My friend and I stayed in the studio for a long weekend and were so pleasantly surprised to find it incredibly welcoming, clean and in a wonderful location. The area is relatively quiet and near a number of different types of places: restaurants, pharmacies, subway, and Central Park! I was not able to meet Monica, as she was out of town, but in my communications with her during the reservations process were wonderful and honest. Larry was more than accommodating upon our arrival and exit and was willing to assist. Next time I'm in NYC, I only hope their place is available! Thank you very much!!

Warm welcome, comfortable accommodation

I stayed at the West Townhouse for 5 days in January 2005. Even before we arrived, Monica was helpful with practical arrangements and gave us a warm welcome. Our room was comfortable, with modern fittings and tasteful decoration. Location is superb, close to cafes, restaurants, central park, shops and museums. Telephone and wireless internet worked well. Monica helped with airport transfer on our departure. I will return for another stay with pleasure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 1 bedrm. apartment, which was perfect for our needs and was located in a real NYC neighborhood. Also Monica and Larry were a pleasure to deal with and get to know. E. Varady

Stayed there in March of 2008 for a weekend. I think it was newly renovated at the time. The owners were a pleasure to deal with both in making the reservation and in being helpful when we arrived. Great location on the upper West Side -- perfect for a romantic weekend in the Big City.

West Townhouse

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at one of West Townhouse's suites. Monica & Larry were delightful hosts - very helpful and genuinely caring towards guests. The location was convenient with easy access to the subway. The rooms were very clean with elegant decor & old-fashioned charm. I would recommend this place to all - as my friend recommended it to me.

Wonderful place to stay

We absolutely loved our stay here! Our room was very spacious and clean, and Monica was so helpful and welcoming. Also, the townhouse is very conveniently located near restuarants, shopping, and the subway. We will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to NYC! Natasha and Will Knowlton

West Townhouse

West Townhouse is on the Upper West side of Manhattan. It is easily accessible to the subway system, grocery stores, restaurants, Central Park, and the Museum of Natural History. The neighborhood is both quiet and safe. The owners are incredibly warm and friendly. The room we stayed in had a bedroom that was separate from the main living room, kitchen, and dinning area. For a little extra money, you can have a small extra bed put in the living room if you have an additional person. The apartment was clean and tastefully decorated. It is a great value for the money especially in a city like NYC where hotel rooms can be easily double what you would pay here. The owners made themselves very easy to contact if there is anything you need. I highly recommed staying here escpecially if you want to escape the frenetic hustle of the Time Square area where a lot of hotels can be situated.

We were lucky enough to stay at the West Townhouse for two weeks when we came to Manhattan for our daughter's wedding. It was perfect. We had an elegant, quiet space to retreat to after all the hustle and bustle of the wedding preparations. The neighborhood is great and the location is wonderful, a short walk to all the Upper West Side shops, subways, and restaurants, and very close to Central Park. Monica made us feel welcome, and responded quickly to any requests we made. We would love to stay there again.

We'll be back!

My husband and I stayed at West Townhouse for a week last summer. Monica and Larry were very accommodating hosts! Our apartment was immaculate and comfortable; we had room enough to entertain guests in the sitting area and to "eat in" and save money. The location is away from the hustle, bustle and noise yet near to EVERYTHING by foot or by subway. A great place to stay! The Bowlings of Chicago, IL

I stayed in the one bedroom suite for 9 days in the Fall 2008. I found it to be lovely, quiet, safe and welcoming. It was very convenient with a short walk to the subway and to the park. To be in the noisy fabulous city all day and come home to the quiet of that apartment and great piano courtesy of Larry was such a gift. Monica & Larry were great landlords and guides when I needed them. Shops were close by as well for late night take out.
