Overview

About the property

Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

The Metropolitan Room, as it is known, is an elegantly furnished studio is up one flight of stairs in a 1881 brownstone townhouse. The four poster queen size bed is extremely comfortable and laden with pillows and a comforter. The south facing windows fitted with folding shutters and venetian blinds look out over West 82nd Street. The kitchen is small but efficient with a brand new LG stainless steel refrigerator. There is a professional quality hot plate that can cook anything. An additional hotplate is available upon request. The charming wallpapered bathroom is has a bathtub and features both a standard shower and a hand held shower.

There is a new flat screen television behind the shutters of the armoire. The big desk has plenty of room to set up a computer and work. There are two leather club chairs facing the fireplace (non-working). A commodious dresser and big closet will fit all your clothes. Hangers are provided, of course. The floor is carpeted in a wool berber and there is an arts and crafts wallpaper wainscotting around the room.

We are a married couple who live on the ground floor, one of us is an architect, the other a composer of classical music. We both work from home. We will greet you upon your arrival and are happy to guide you to features of the neighborhood. The building is extremely quiet and secure, as is the tree lined block in the heart of the Upper West Side. You are just steps from the greatest museums, shopping and entertainment in the world.

About Warren Ashworth

We are an artist couple, one of us is a composer of classical music the other is a painter and an architect. We have two grown children. We live and work in the brownstone.

Warren Ashworth purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Warren Ashworth chose Manhattan

This is our year round residence. We have two VRBO units in this brownstone, each across the hall from the other. The other unit, The Dutch Room, is listed under VRBO 430146. Families and friends often like to book both. They are both studios and both are the same rental rates.

What makes this apartment unique

High ceilings, quiet, beautifully furnished.

Unlike many listings, The Metropolitan Room is fully licensed by the City and State of New York to operate as a hotel for which we collect and pay taxes. Our license numbers are available upon request.

Loved our stay in the Upper West Side Studio

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. This sunny cheery studio was well appointed with all the amenities we could have asked for. We were warmly greeted by Jennifer who helps Warren. We were able to drop our luggage off early and stow it until our flight time. Very accommodating to our schedule. Perfect location to access all parts of town. Great recommendations for local eateries. We look forward to booking this apartment again when we return to NYC!

Charming apartment

  • 5 of 5

While the host was out of town at the time of my visit, he made arrangements for some was there to welcome and carry up my luggage. The apartment is quite cozy and unique with several antiques to add to the charm....and the bed is a dream. It was clean and well stocked with coffee, milk, and juice to start my busy morning. I was in for a family event and this apartment was right in the middle of things. Sadly, at the end of the trip I became ill and my daughter had to clear out my things. Again Cynthia was most helpful in extending the checkout time so my daughter could get from the hospital to the apartment.THANK YOU Cynthia.

Great studio in a residential neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to rent this studio for a week and I can thoroughly recommend it to others. Yes the kitchen and bathroom are small but the studio has great character and is located in a residential section of New York. The overall experience is very pleasing and I would rent here again. Public transport options are close by and the local streets have a great range of eating and shopping choices. Warren and Susan are superb hosts.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were most welcoming and helpful and were available for any enquiries. The bed was comfortable, and we had all that we needed to make our stay pleasant. One thing, we missed was an electric kettle, which would have been handy for our frequent cups of tea and coffee as we don't like drip coffee! Would certainly recommend this bedsit for anyone visiting New York

Clean, cute, central.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the apartment, on the same block as the Police Precinct, 2 blocks to a great breakfast place on the corner of 82 and Broadway. Good selection of restaurants on Broadway and Amsterdam. Close to subway. Close to Natural History museum and central park.

Safe quiet neighborhood, apartment was very clean and bright. Perfect for our needs.

Property is exactly as it appears- charming, lots of character in a wonderful location of cafes

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay on our first trip to New York. It was so very nice to come back to this quieter area away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place was charming and comfortable with plenty of room for my husband I to celebrate our 20th anniversary. It was nice to arrive and have a few groceries in the fridge- especially since our flight was 12 hours late. There are many excellent places to eat, grab drinks or get your morning coffee just around the corner. It was convenient to hop on the subway or grab an Uber, and easy to walk to Central Park. Would come back and stay here!
