Lonely Planet review

Named for the year it was built, this historic home now serves as a quaint five-room inn. Each unit (including two multiroom suites) is like a mini-apartment, with a kitchenette, private bath, queen beds, working fireplace and period-style furnishings. All the rooms are light-filled, with airy 12ft ceilings, while the suites, on the upper floors, can sleep up to five.

This is a great-value place for the neighborhood. But note that this is a characterful, vintage structure: there is no elevator, the floors are a bit creaky, and in winter, heat is provided by steam radiators.

Our independent authors have visited 1871 House and selected this as one of our recommended historic hotels in Upper East Side.
