Our House is a small, quiet and private townhouse with plenty of old-world ambiance. Furnished in the romantic bed and breakfast style, the apartments are quite spacious and generally much larger than comparable type properties in New York City.

Located on 62nd Street just off Park Avenue, within the Upper East Side Historic District, the house is within close proximity to Midtown. It feels like a secret hideaway from the moment you enter the intimate lobby. The circa 1871 Brownstone offers relatively affordable accommodations in a shopping and museum-convenient area of the Upper East Side.

One-of-a-kind Spacious half-floor suites are available as well as full floor suites including one two bedroom/two bathroom suite and two three-bedroom one bathroom suite. Half floor suites can accommodate a maximum of 3 persons while full-floor suites can accommodate a maximum of five persons. The maximum group size we can accommodate is 5-8 persons or two suites. Most rooms offer 10-12 foot ceilings, wood floors covered with Oriental rugs, beautifully dressed queen beds and cozy sitting areas facing ornamental fireplaces, private bathrooms, an assortment of antiques and or quality reproductions as well as either a kitchen or kitchenette.

The house is conveniently located between two subway stations with access to the 4, 5, 6, F, N, Q, and R lines that will easily take you to all your listed destinations. Just 2.5 blocks to Central Park and only two blocks to Bloomingdales. Excellent location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The staff was wonderful and the room looked exactly as it was pictured! I checked all of the reviews before I booked and thank all who have posted. Someone mentioned that the bathroom they had was old. Well, yes, it is, but I have a one hundred year old house so it didn't faze me and on balance, everything is so clean and so charming...and, the neighborhood is wonderful, an old bathroom is a fair trade!!!!!! I used to live in Manhattan in the 1970s and have stayed in hotels on visits since then. So cold and sterile! Now that I've found the 1871 House, I would never go back to a hotel...and, can't wait to return!

This is by far my favorite hotel in NYC! The location is great, only a few blocks from Bloomingdales, Saks, great shops on Third Avenue and Central Park as well as many of my favorite restaurants and museums. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful. The large armoire, spectacular bed and beautiful area rugs are classic and a great change from the cookie cutter rooms at most hotels.

I always feel special staying in a grand brownstone in an incredible neighborhood! The inn keepers are always helpful and friendly and my family insists we return annually! My daughter loves the location and proximity to Dylan's Candy while my husband likes the quiet neighborhood and proximity to mid town business.

I highly recommend this inn!!!!

1871 House surpassed our expectations. The staff was helpful when needed, the room had everything you needed and room to be in. The experience was exactly what we wanted, to feel like we lived there and experience the life. The subway to get everywhere you need to go is two blocks down, central shopping, the park for walking. It was the best vacation I've taken and the 1871 House was a huge part of that.

Upper East Side Pied-a-terre Living with boutique hotel amenities!

  • 5 of 5
I was delighted to discover the 1871 House on my last trip into NYC. Located on one of the most charming blocks on the upper east side, this beautiful property is convenient to everything the city has to offer. It is private and cozy enough to feel like a home away from home while having all the amenities of an upscale boutique hotel. The small suite I had was equipped with everything and beautifully appointed with the antiques and wonderful linens. Located between Park and Lexington, the atmosphere is serene and quiet while being just steps away from all Manhattan has to offer. I'm in the city at least once a month and now that I've found this gem, I look forward to returning again and again! For business or pleasure, it's the best location in the city!

This is a great old New York building with all the charm and quirks you would expect. If you want location, this is it. Perfect for a single person traveling alone. Safe, lots of great restaurants where a table for one is no big deal. Two blocks from the Zoo and Central Park walking paths. Few block from subway station. However, if you are considering booking the Front Library Room, be sure the tub hot water nozzle has been fixed, and that the windows will open and stay open (had to prop mine with books). Bathroom is very very small, even for a petite woman like myself. Be aware E62 St. at Lexington is a very busy intersection and the noise level can get quite loud. Consider a room that does not face the street, although more expensive.

Wonderful!

My husband and I spent our 25th Wedding anniversary in New York and I cannot think of a better place to stay than the 1871 house! We stayed in the Parlor Room. It was comfortable, and well stocked. We enjoyed the neighborhood and found it convenient to have a grocery just down the street. There are many restaurants in the area - just walk 1/2 block in any direction! -- close to subway, close to Central Park. I felt I got a very good feeling of living in Manhattan -- loved the Upper East Side! The description is accurate, the room is exactly as photographed. I would recommend the 1871 House to anyone wanting a neighborhood stay in Manhattan.
