    Historical Traveler Reviews West Eleventh Historic Townhouse Apartments New York City

    Our home away from home


    My partner and I have stayed here twice within a 5 month period. It has become our home away from home. We stayed in the Monet on both visits. It is comfortable and was recently painted and redecorated. The owners are helpful without being intrusive. We will definitely be back!

    West Village Oasis


    This is a little jewel in the West Village. Owners are attentive and helpful. Neighborhood can't be beat. The apartments are clean and well-appointed and you can't beat the price in NYC. Only caveat is that the trek up the long, brownstone stairs to 4th floor where our apartment was located is a real chore. Anyone would walking issues should ask for the 1st floor suite--which we absolutely loved.

    Beautiful, Charming, Quaint


    This place is like a private little oasis amid the hustle of New York City. Right in the middle of a beautiful neighborhood, too. Very elegant, well cared-for, and the owners (Hercules and Therese) made us feel like family. I really didn't want to leave.

    Wonderful West Village Location


    My Fiancee and me were pleasantly surprised by out stay at West Eleventh this past December 04'. We were having a difficult time finding decent lodging and were tipped off to this Inn by another Inn owner in the city, Lucky us!

    We were little skeptical about staying in the village, but the location, hospitality and the just plain charm of this little find had us feeling that we found the best deal in NYC. West 11th will defiantly be our choice for lodging on our trips to NYC.

    BTW, don't miss the cup cakes from the bakery on the corner, just look for the lines.



    In December we stayed at the West Eleventh Townhouse in Greenwich Village in New York City. It was a delight!

    The comfortable, relaxed one-bedroom was an oasis when we returned at the end of the day after enjoying the hustle and bustle of Manhattan during the Christmas season. And the quiet of the lovely "real New Yorker" neighborhood and the apartment itself was perfect!

    We were in the Monet. I must admit that I had initial qualms about the comfort of the rattan furniture -- but the sofa and its comfy pillows and throw were perfect for a little R&R after our daylong visit to MOMA.

    Lots of nearby conveniences -- a deli, restaurants, including the reknown Magnolia Bakery -- were appreciated.

    Loved West Eleventh


    Having never visited New York before, we felt so lucky to have found West Eleventh. We were on the last week of our honeymoon and after having had a fantastic time in Fiji, New Zealand and San Francisco we were not expecting New York to come out tops but it did!! In large part this was due to West Eleventh and our wonderful hosts Therese and Hercules. They were warm, friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. The apartment was cosy, comfortable and homely. 19th century townhouses, tree-lined streets, cool shops, restaurants, cafes and there we were, right in the middle of it all !! I would highly recommend West Eleventh Townhouse to anyone looking for a warm, welcoming and homely place to stay in New York.

    West Village Sojourn


    Charming little place in the heart of the West Village. Great living room, large enough to entertain, small bedroom, petite kitchen, tastefully furnished. We definitely plan on returning.

    Neighborhood Gem in W. Village


    If you don't mind long staircases, this is a find in a great neighborhood. Outstanding hosts, well furnished,clean, fully equipped with luxury linens and towels and its quiet. Very hip at the top of the Village, next to Chelsea and the Meatmarket, around the corner from Magnolia Bakery and luxury shops. The better small restaurants are a short walk on W. 4th St.; the Hudson River new parkway just 2 blocks. This is for former NY'ers looking for a slice of what was or those wanting to experience "the life" for a short while. Subway is close, cabs to Tribeca, East Village, etc. reasonable- but to Midtown not.

    Authentic West Village Living


    Unique, large, studio alcove apartments, very high ceilings, each custom decorated with refined taste. A historical district and building, not a re-creation, the real thing from around 1840.

    Your owner hosts, Therise and Hercules, are long time Greenwich Village residents with encyclopedic knowledge of NYC.

    Perhaps the most beatiful block in NY, it is also so quiet you will wonder how this could be Manhattan.

    A sanctuary in the Village


    West-Eleventh Townhouse has it all. Outside the front door is vibrant Greenwich Village. Inside is a virtual sanctuary; an old townhouse with delightful and caring hosts who provide lovely accommodations and maximum privacy at great value. I signed on for three months and I'm extending for nine.

    ... dating back to the 1700s. Wow.

    By now the day was older than planned, so instead of a wander on East River Park near the United Nations, we stayed on the bus (tour guide complaining of heat and that he was knocking off at Times Square) and jumped off into the chaotic crowd that is the entertainment hub of Manhattan. We considered a five o'clock rush show but decided we were too tired and under dressed (we WILL do one before we leave) ...

    ... overdue for some red meat and veggies! Then from there we headed to a Broadway comedy show, it was only $15 each for an hour and a half and 6 comedians so we figured we'd give it a go. And it was actually a really fun night! Most of them were awesome and very funny, there was only really two that were a bit awkward and didn't get much of a laugh from the crowd. It was fun to try something different :) the show got out at about 11 so we headed back to Brooklyn after ...

    Hello from Bex!

    It was a surprisingly long flight from Cancun to New York and we were sad to leave Mexico which had ended up being and huge and important part of the trip. But as we took a cab from JFK into town we soon got excited! Even though I've been a few times now you never get over the view of the Manhattan skyline when you first see it. We went straight to my brother James' apartment on Avenue C where we arrived rather shell ...

    ... our journey. We walked through the city, passing through parts if the freedom trail again, before going up the the 52nd floor of the prudential building. What an amazing view of the whole of Boston! I got a delicious strawberry basil lemonade cocktail before we headed back home. And with that, my time in Boston came to a close. I had a 5 hour bus ride ahead of me to New York. I was fortunate enough to find a couchsurfer to host me during my time in New ...

    ... for fajitas. Then came the subway nightmare. Now I actually had to take a break from writing there as the prospect of reliving the experience is too much. The short version: we got in the train and the doors closed... Then opened.... Then closed.... Then opened (repeat upwards of twenty times interspersed with the driver telling the people in the rear car to stand clear of the doors). This goes in for about ten minutes till he cancels the train and kicks us ...
