Your own private hideaway. A quiet dreamy oasis for your busy New York trip. Enjoy life in an elegant 1904 Mansion in one of the city's most charming historic neighbourhoods.

If you are a regular guest of The Carlyle, The Mark, or The Surrey, but are looking for more space, privacy, bespoke personalized service... or merely more calm and quiet (here you can hide from the paparazzi)... or if you are a couple celebrating a special occasion... or if you are simply looking for an unforgettable stay... this classically furnished, most luxurious guest suite is distinctly for you.

This elegant Aristocratic Beaux-Art style Landmark Mansion was built in 1904 from Indiana limestone and Italian marble. My family was fortunate to have acquired it in 1988, and it has been our family's leading residence since 1994.

At over 13,000+ sqft, (1.200+ sqm), our NYC Mansion is much too spacious for us. So we decided to live on the upper 3 floors, and to convert the lower 4 floors into completely separate & very private guest apartments (all with independent entry) available year-round for brief stays and mid-term let.

Since 2005, we have been luxuriously hosting guests from around the world in a warm and splendid environment.

About Julia and Claudio - OWNERS, live in the same Mansion full time

Since 1994, our Fifth Avenue Mansion has been an oasis for weary travellers visiting bustling and energetic New York City. Owned and operated by an old European family who has chosen to make New York City their home, the premises has not forgotten the Old World refinements of England and France. Located in the mid-70's and Fifth Avenue, The Fifth Avenue Mansion has often been a home-away-from-home to notable members of several Royal Families from a number of European countries.

This property is listed by its Owners, a married couple, who live in the premises with their family.

Housekeepers and Maintenance Staff also live on premises and are available 12-hours per day, every day.

Most matters get attended to within a few minutes.

Julia & Claudio do everything to make their guests' overall stay in NY as comfortable and easy as possible.

You will find that everyone is very friendly, and very easy to deal with.

Its a fantastic place to stay at NYC.

  • 5 of 5

I am a professional female in my 40s and had the pleasure of staying for 3 weeks in the Artist Studio of the 5th avenue townhouse while I was studying English. (I need English for my work, as I am an executive in a multinational company).

I stayed for 3 weeks in February.

The house is so great, in a fantastic location, close to central park, and convinient for public transportation.

During the good weather days, I could go walking through central park and museum mile! I really enjoyed it!

The studio is small but good enough to stay comfortable. The Murphy bed worked so well, the mattress was perfect and I could manage the bed without any difficulties. Is easy to handle!

During the day it works perfect as a place to stay. The house, the street, and apartment are amazingly quite. You never hear a thing !

I guess in other time, it could be lovely to go to the terrace, but the light was fantastic through the window. It is a luminous space.

The kitchen has all the appliances needed, the bathroom is so comfortable.

But the best of all...people from home! I felt accompanied, all of them where so helpful and simphatetic, ready to help with various information about the neighborhood! Even a doctor while I was sick! Also the crew were very kind, and changed sheets and towels, did my laundry and cleaned the room daily to warrantee a comfy stay!

Thanks to all of you to make my time at NY a wonderful one! I strongly recommend to stay there and hope to come back again!

Fantastic location and As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Julia is great host. We rented both units on third floor for two families and was just right. Everything super easy to get to in taxi or Uber from location and Central Park is right across street. Not same modern luxuries as hotel but having kitchen was convenient for kids and they loved the architecture and historic decor.

Historic Building in a FANTASTIC Location = an A+

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in both the Grande White Loft and the Deluxe European Suite over the course of our visit to NYC.

Both spaces were suitable for a family with two young children (like ourselves) who is looking for more than just the run-of-the-mill hotel experience which is all too common in NYC.

The Grand White Loft has a very modern / minimalist / loft-style vibe to it, while the Deluxe European Suite had a distinctly "old world" feel and reminded me of rooms that one might rent in one of the great European capitals (Paris, Rome, Vienna, etc.).

Both spaces included a master bedroom, a small but well stocked kitchen where meals can be prepared while in residence, as well as a separate sitting room with TV.

All spaces were clean and perfectly maintained, and, when service was needed (during our stay a light bulb burned out in the bathroom) it is very fast and efficient. Internet service was also a breeze.

The property owners are a thirty-something couple with European roots who actually live in the building with their children. The wife (Julia) was available to answer our questions and address any potential concerns at short notice. She even provided us with reviews of local restaurants, grocery stores and other area attractions.

Staying here feels like being invited to a private home in Europe rather than a NYC Hotel guest....and the Upper East side location is perfect for going to Central Park, various Museums or just after-dinner music at the Carlyle.

In short, we would definitely stay there again.

Well-kept property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home on the UES, easy access to subway, great shopping, and more. The apartment is billed as "petite and charming," and it's just that. Small, yet had all I needed. Ample storage and hanging space; well-stocked kitchen. The apartment was impeccably maintained; owners/staff are very responsive to questions. Communication prior to and during the visit was outstanding. I look forward to staying in this home on future trips!

Amazing location and wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

we stayed on the third floor in two different apartments and it was absolutely amazing. Julia and her team made us feel at home. We could not have been happier and look forward to future stays.
