Comfort and elegance at a great price

One of the most pleasant of the many pleasant things about Mount Morris House is the quiet, which is unexpected in Manhattan and welcome after a long day. This Victorian mansion, furnished in an eclectic assortment of antiques and artwork, feels like a fancy dress shoe that used to be tight but elegant and has finally gotten comfortable. The rooms are gigantic by Manhattan standards and each shows the personalities and quirky taste of the owners, who are gracious and welcoming without hovering. There are plenty of good eateries and clubs right in the neighborhood, and it’s an easy subway ride to anywhere else you want to go.

Incredible Stay!

We thank Vasili and Dimitri for their tremendous hospitality during our families stay in the loft and Suite 1 during Christmas. Beautifully restored and very clean throughout the grand house. Breakfast each morning was delicious and abundant, lunch was not necessary. Very accessible to both bus and metro. Highly recommended and look forward to visiting again, very much worth the value. Reserve today! P & C Bonnetaud.

A Canadian Opinion

We had the opportunity to stay in the loft. The climb up the stairs was well worthwhile. While the breakfasts were wonderful, it was the hospitality of Vasili and Dimitri that truly made our stay exceptional

A Treasure in Manhattan

Our stay at Mount Morris was superb from start to finish. The house is just beautiful like stepping back in time to the days when houses were aristocratic and elegant. The rooms were a very good size, cozy and warm and the shower was amazing. The breakfast was a feast of fresh fruit, croissants and on Sunday pancakes and maple syrup!!!! Mount Morris is well located and in easy reach of the bus and subway. Our host was gracious and was the perfect complement to a lovely house. I will definitely be recommending Mount Morris to my friends and look forward to returning myself.

Great Place to Stay

You won’t be disappointed staying with Vasili. He will take care of your needs. Breakfast was plentiful and tasted wonderful, conversations were great and he had good recommendations for dinners. We were able to quickly get on the subway or bus right outside of the B&B. Don’t let the neighborhood fool you………..there are upscale restaurants within a few blocks of the B&B that have wonderful food and service. The rooms were large and beautifully decorated. We’ll be staying again.

A Great Place

this was a great place to stay for our trip, in a very interesting and quiet area, easily accessible by bus and subway. We were made very welcome by Vasili and Dimitri, and would definitely choose this home from homes again. Vasili must be in contention for the best breakfast ever!! The most beautifully set table, and such a variety of fruit, breads, eggs, cheeses….you name it, and it changed every day!

Home Away From Home

Wonderful hospitality, marvelous breakfasts and always ready for a pleasant chat should you feel inclined to do so. Our trip to NY is a great memory, and we owe it partially to V. & D.

Very Good Place to Spend Nice Days in NYC

I recommend this B&B anyone seeking a B&B in NYC. Friendly owner and large comfortable room make this a rewarding place to stay. Very good breakfast and a very interesting neighborhood. Subway very close and very nice atmosphere. Thanks.

A True Gem

Charming, clean, comfortable, luxurious, hospitable hosts, generous and delicious breakfast, a great find in Manhattan, not far from metro and bus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend it to others. Great recommendations from owners, very helpful, and kind. Do not hesitate to stay here. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Vasili and Dimitri!

A Great Place to Stay in NYC

A great place to stay in NYC! Vassili and Dimitri are extremely welcoming and always ready to help with a host of tips and advice (including an amazing steak restaurant a couple of blocks away!). Breakfasts are lavish and there is a new surprise every day (thank you for the very delicious “pain perdu”, Vassili!). And the rooms are very spacious. I strongly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a memorable NYC experience. Stephanie (Paris)

Oase van Rust in Crazy Manhattan

Een hartelijke ontvangst om 10 uur op de avond dat Obama en McCain hun laatste debat voeren. Een geweldig trappenhuis en een heel royale kamer, schone badkamer. Ruimte en rust met mooie decoraties, antieke meubels en warme tapijten. Volgende ochtend, heerlijk geslapen op de box spring, worden we verrast door Visali met het ontbijt: veel vers fruit, broodjes, naar keuze bacon and eggs of cerials. Op 5 minuten van het metrostation naar Times square en het Finance district, perfect. Na alle hectiek van de stad is het een verademing om ‘s avonds in het b&b ‘thuis’ te komen. Internationaal gezelschap, leuk om aan de ontbijttafel ervaringen uit te wisselen. Prijs – kwaliteit is een goede verhouding. Een aanrader voor rustzoekers die graag verwend worden.

Exceptional Charm and Hospitality

My husband and I recently stayed at this B&B and we had a great stay. The innkeeper was very hospitable, the accommodations were beautiful, and the breakfast was great. I plan to return to this B&B the next time I have to travel to New York.

A Treasure …

An amazing place, run by great people in a wonderful city. Want to wake up hearing the birds and looking at a park outside of your window? Want to experience living in a treasure and feeling like being at home?Want to encounter European perfectionism and Mediterranean Charm in the city that never sleeps? Enjoy all of the above at Mount Morris House – we did it!

The FIRST Call I’ll Make Next Trip

What a wonderful experience! The Mount Morris House is beautifully restored, very comfortable, with the most gracious hosts. Breakfast each day was a feast. The neighborhood is vibrant with many good dining possibilities. Add in the easy access to public transportation, and it makes the perfect NYC home away from home.

A Unique and Special Place

When we had breakfast at Mount Morris House we agreed that it shouldn’t be called “bed and breakfast” but “bed and banquet”, the breakfast was a real feast! The rooms are so very special with a lovely, lovely atmosphere and the owners are very kind and helpful. We will definitively stay here again!


Great B&B superb breakfast often too much food :), suite was beautiful, house kept and restored in immaculate condition. Vaslii the perfect host orientating me and my partner to the area surrounding the B&B and recommending some good resturants. Good access to downtown Manhattan from the residence, closest to 2 subways and a bus that runs the whole way down 5th avenue. Thoroughly enjoyed out time there thanks Vasalii

Extraordinary Bed and Breakfast

Our stay at Mount Morris House was beyond our expectations. The house is wonderfully restored. The innkeeper, Vasili, goes the extra step to make your stay comfortable, convenient, and fun. He is an excellent cook – we had a superb breakfast every day. He arranged transportation to and from the airport, printed our boarding passes, arranged a great restaurant for dinner, and on and on. We highly recommend staying at Mount Morris House for a unique look at New York City. Robin and Gil

Great stay

We enjoyed a pleasant stay. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was wonderful. We received lots of local tips and information from our host that proved very helpful to us. Thanks.

Unforgettable Stay at Vasilis Place

My parents and me had a perfect stay in New York at Vasilis place. Nice Service, perfect breakfast, beautiful furniture. Thank you!

What a find!

From the moment we arrived (around midnight due to a delayed flight) to the moment we checked out, we were made to feel welcome by our innkeepers. Our room was spacious and charming, with an updated bath and rain shower. Breakfast was a feast each day and so substantial that we usually skipped lunch (a great economizer in NYC). The bus stop is literally at the bottom of the front steps and the subway just a few blocks away so getting anywhere in Manhattan is very easy. The inn provides wireless internet access, so you get the best of late nineteenth century charm with every modern convenience. We will definitely be back!

A Great Stay at Mount Morris House

Recently my daughter and I spent a week at the Mount Morris House, and the stay enhanced a memorable vacation. If vacationers love antiques and homes with character and history, they will enjoy staying at this B&B. Besides the accommodations the service could not be better. Vasili went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable from making excellent breakfasts, offering to hail us a cab, or asking us if we needed anything while giving all his guests the privacy they may want. Speaking of guests, we met some wonderful people from different countries while the B&B felt like home with the next door neighbor stopping in for breakfast. I highly recommend the Mount Morris House if you are heading to New York. My daughter and I are looking forward to our next visit to the Mount Morris House.

Wonderful, Historic B&B

Great architecture, friendly owner and large comfortable room make this a rewarding place to stay. We would recommend it to anyone seeking a B&B in NYC.

A Gracious Getaway in Manhattan

We had a wonderful weekend at the Mount Morris House, using it as a base for our Manhattan trip. It was convenient to LaGuardia, and an easy ride to Midtown on subways or the Park Avenue bus that stops right outside. Our hosts could not have been more attentive, and they helped us have a perfect weekend–at about $200 less per night than we would have spent on a tiny Midtown hotel. We will stay there on our next trip. We give it our highest recommendation.

A True Blessing

I am so blessed to have met Vasili and Dimitry. I came to NYC to finish my Ministry ceremony and had already reserved a room with another location, but found out at the last minute that it was a scam. I emailed Vasili desperate for a new location. Vasili called me and was so gracious. They took care of a driver to pick up my family from one location, drop off our luggage and take us to Riverside Church for my ceremony. The rooms are spacious and beautiful and the breakfasts were great. When I visit NYC again, this is the only place I will stay. Thank you, Vasili and Dimitry, for making this trip so spectacular and opening up your beautiful home to us. 6/2008

Home Away From Home!

Due to a last minute change in my schedule, I needed a overnight stay in NYC and was unable to find a decent hotel room at a reasonable price. But staying a night at Mount Morris House was better than any NYC hotel experience. My room and bath was triple the size of any hotel room. Vasili & Dimitry made me feel very welcomed and safe. The morning peaceful with a relaxed breakfast, not a typical NYC morning that I am used to at the hotels! A hidden gem and one that I will frequent often.

Wonderful New York Experience

My husband and I are delighted to have been among the very first guests at this new gem in historical Mount Morris Park. Dimitri and Vasili, our hosts, were gracious and attentive. We felt welcome in their home. The 19th century townhouse has been restored to its original grandeur. The room was spacious and clean. It was a great New York experience. We loved it.

I Felt Like I Was Visiting Friends

Vasili & Dimitry are wonderful hosts and the accommodations were perfect. Even though there was record breaking heat, they made sure that I was comfortable at all times. The house is lovely and the neighborhood is fine. I will never consider a hotel in NYC again!!! I can’t wait to visit them again. Robert
