Historical Traveler Reviews A Greenwich Village Habitue New York City
Great, highly recomend
I highly recommend staying in an apartment as opposed to a hotel in New York. A real feeling of truly experiencing temporarily living in New York as opposed to just passing through. The apartment is not modern in its feel but much more in line with the brownstone building it's contained within - think antique shop rather than Ikea!
Within easy walking distance of Greenwich Village and a Metro stop, this provided an ideal mix. For non city dwellers, this was very much more homely/less hassled than staying around the skyscrapers however with a great mix of restaurants/bars within walking distance.
Another plus was the great heating - this combined with the 'cosy' atmosphere - meant we were very comfortable - even on the coldest day of the year!
The apartment owners were very helpful. Even to the stage of printing out places to go, maps, leaving the latest guide book and restaurant leaflets for you to peruse at your leisure. Great place to stay - which is just as well seeing as we were celebrating our engagement in New York!
We love it
This apartment is in a lovely neighbourhood with great restaurants, bars, delis and shops close by. It is on a quiet, residential street in Greenwich Village and you can easily walk to Soho and the trendy meatpacking district. The rooms are spotlessly clean and decorated and furnished beautifully which I think is really imporant, I cannot stand badly decorated hotel rooms - no worries about that here the rooms are gorgeous. Also the bed was really comfortable. The hosts, Matthew and Kevin, were welcoming and helpful. My husband and I are vegetarian and this neighbourhood has some excellent vegetarian and vegan restaurants. I unreservedly recommend this apartment and look forward to staying there again.
Feel like a real New Yorker!
We stayed in this wonderful apartment for our honeymoon and loved it. The location is perfect - you are just round the corner from the trendy Meatpacking District with its cool restaurants and shops and the nearest subway station is only a short walk away. The apartment has a good-sized lounge area with TV, a comfortable queen bed, a dining area, kitchen and small bathroom. It is spacious, clean and quiet. We met up with some friends one evening who were paying double the amount for a hotel room which was absolutely tiny and right in the thick of it with all the noise from the traffic. In contrast, you can truly relax in this apartment and feel like a real New Yorker. Highly recommended.
Just Like Home
This is by far the best bed and breakfast of its kind I've ever stayed in in New York. It is even better than it appears from its website. Large, spacious room, good closet space, great bathroom with lots of hot water and great water pressure, convenient kitchenette for light breakfasts--all this on a quiet floor with real "Rear Window" views. I've lived in Manhattan before and I can say this really does feel like home.
A perfectly charming place to stay in one of the greatest spots in the country. Plenty of places to dance and dine within blocks of the Habitue. For us the experience was like living in our own apartment nestled in a quiet part of the Village, yet, only a few blocks from the subway. Fantastic.
The Ultimate Find
Nestled on a quiet street in Greenwich Village, GV Habitue is a gem. My husband and don't really enjoy staying in hotels, especially the ones we can afford. I love to find unique rooms to stay in, as an alternative. This lovely apartment in an 1830's brownstone exceeded our expectations. The inkeepers, Matt and Kevin, were two of the nicest people we'd met in the city, and they are seriously committed to providing the cleanest, most comfortable environment you'll ever find at these prices. When we arrived, we thought the pictures on the website probably made it look a little better than it was. We were wrong. The pictures on their site absolutely reflect the character and beauty of of the rooms. We will definitely stay there, in the future, whenever we are in the city.
Greenwich Village Habitue
My best friend and I have just got back from a fantastic week in New York. We spent 3 nights at W Tuscany in Midtown which we thoroughly enjoyed but it wasnt until we got to the Greenwich Village Habitue for the remainder of our trip that we could truely relax into the New York life style. Firstly Greenwich Village is a much better place to stay if you want to feel like a New Yorker and experience a feeling of community that you wont find in Mid Town. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, trendy lounge bars, delis/supermarkets and shops all within walking distance of Greenwich Village Habitue. Its located on the Meat Packing/ Greenwich village border. The apartment we stayed in was on the 2nd floor but felt like a home from home. The best thing is having your own apartment as opposed to a "room" in a hotel. It was lovely, very spacious and clean with all amenities and we were well looked after by Mathew and Kevin. Other reviews have described what the apartments feature and I would always just choose to stay here in future.
My wife and I have stayed at many hotels in Manhattan, and this is by far the best, and we will be going back. Situated on a quiet street, more apartment than hotel, no noise at night from other guests or people living there. Only two short blocks from the Meatpacking District or West Village shops and restaurants with Dagostinos down the street. Large room, and perfect host. This place beats all others!
Great stay in Greenwich Village
What a great stay we had at the Greenwich Village Habitue. Perfeclty located near great restaurants and the subway, it is also in a very nice and safe neighborhood. The accomodations were outstanding. We had a great visit and would come back in a second.

We just came back from a weekend stay at Greenwich Village Habitue and were so impressed I had to write this review immediately. First of all, I can't believe the value we got for the money. Instead of a hotel room, we got a gorgeous and HUGE studio apartment filled with antiques, a kitchen, lovely bathroom and LOADS of closet space. Even a dining room! The establishment is a charming Greenwich Village townhouse with several cute, well appointed apartments. The bed was wonderful, new and firm, sheets were great quality, as were the towels, which were plentiful. Everything was so CLEAN, and I am picky. Lots of lamps and good lighting too, local calls are free, which you won't find in the hotels. The location was another plus, right off Greenwich Street, and a block away from the trendy Meatpacking District. We had bowls of cafe au lait for breakfast every morning at Pastis, dinner choices are endless, with Paradou, MEET, and so many others just two blocks away. Great people watching. We also had the best lunch ever at Tavern on Jane -- order the blue cheese burger and you will NOT be disappointed. The owners, Matt and Kevin, are incredibly nice and accomodating, and had LOADS of maps, menus, magazines and other printed material on NY ready for us. We travel extensively and I found this place to be one of the best places I have stayed, regardless of cost. Just one point to be aware of, the townhouse does not have an elevator. We were on the third floor, which was no problem for us.

New York City is my boyfriend
I'm going to live there in just a few years...
... half a foot away when I'd inched just a little too close. He was like a little grumpy old man. It was a lovely moment for me.
As I was walking over the Arlington memorial bridge a helicopter clattered overhead and made for the White House. I like to think that Obama was in there flying over (no i know, probably not, don't spoilt it!). Eventually I got to the cemetery. It was... quietly horrific. Row upon row upon row of white gravestones for as far as the eye ...
... etc. Some areas you couldn't take photos.
From here we walked across to Wall Street, hoping to do a tour of the New York Stock Exchange, but not only is it not open to the public, but has great barricades out the front.
... like a radiator. He made each chowder quickly and efficiently, but he kept having an imaginary conversation with someone while doing it.
Remember that this is below the first floor of Grand Central. You wouldn’t know it until you step into the men’s bathroom. I literally felt the floor shake. I think I was above a track. It felt like I was on a ship. When I went back to the oyster bar, there was no vibration at all.
... The Out-of-Towners and It Had to be You. We were lucky to be sat by some plants and saw several fire flies darting in and out of them. The food matched the magnificent setting and we had a great night.
The next day we met Steph and Matt and two of their friends Paddy and James on Rare rooftop which we hadn’t been to before. It’s a bit of an unknown gem with a great view of the Empire State. ...
