We spent 10 days in Margot House between the 30th of June and the 10 of July 2011. We were not disappointed with the place or the service, the location is good and handy to travel downtown at any time of the day. The neighbourhood is not upmarket but very safe and has a number of nice enough restaurants that...

We loved everything about staying at Margot's. Todd kept up with us on our trip out and was waiting for us on check in with a ton of info on the area. We tried several of his recommendations but our favorite was a little cuban joint ( the name is slipping from me). We had a super easy walk to...

Stayed at Margot Guest House for five nights and will certainly go back if we ever return to NYC. The house itself is immaculately clean and comfortable with lovely interiors. Todd, the owner, is very friendly and has some great restaurant recommendations - for the local area and NYC as a whole. Most of the hotels recommended to us beforehand...

Stayed a week at the Margot in April. The location is wonderful for exploring Spanish Harlem, Harlem, the Upper East Side and Museum Mile. Plenty of buses and two subway stops nearby. Our only location issue was it was a little too far to get back for a freshen-up between a day out exploring and an evening show. Area felt...

We really enjoyed staying at Margot. (Last time I stayed at Empire Hotel that was unreasonnably expensive and had a lot of drawbacks. So I was surprised to find this wonderful place) Location - 2 blocks from Central Park, very close to 2 subway stations and Museum mile. There are a lot of nice restaurants ande deli stores nearby. The...

Extremely clean. Sort of classic French minimalist decor with what appears to be a lot of authentic furniture. We had a street side room, but no trouble with traffic noise. Lots of sun in the AM. Didn't hear a peep out of any other guests, just the occasional footsteps on the stairs. Maid service during your stay is on request...

This was a great little place once we found it - arrived in the worst snow storm NYC has had for 30 years! The is no sign above the door so it just looks like a normal house. Todd the owner was extremely helpful with how to get around and where to eat locally. The room was charming and rustic...

We arrived at Margot's after a long day travelling from the UK. A yellow cab will transfer you from JFK for a flat rate of $45; do NOT get taken in by the guys who collar you straight away offering rates of $65! We rang the basement apartment bell as directed in our email booking confirmation and were greeted by...

We stayed at Margot guest house in October 2010 for seven nights and we would definitely return here again. This guesthouse is close to public transport, especially the subway, which we used every day. It is a short subway ride to Times Square or if you are adventurous you can walk there. We were able to walk to Central Park...

“Avoid street-side rooms, such as #5 on the third floor, unless you are a very heavy sleeper.”

“Quietest room is top floor, back of building.”

“Room 2 at back overlooks gardens-quiet.Front rooms might be a little noisy as the subway runs underground under Lexington Ave. No elevator.”
ArabellaB_11, 20 Jul 2015 | Read review
“On three stays this year, I've stayed in two rooms : Room 1 (first floor in front/on the street) and Room 2 (first floor in back/overlooking the gardens). Both rooms are large & sunny & beautiful. I loved them both. It's true that Room 1 gets some street noise (& even a little rumble from the subway trains coming from the Lower Depths) (the price of the room—an amazing value, really—reflects this), but sounds didn't bother me—especially after the first night. On the contrary, I came to enjoy the bustle, loved watching life on the street from my large windows, & at night, in my big loft bed (perched thoughtfully at the very back-end of the room above the bathroom!) even if I heard a little noise or felt a little rumble, it made me feel very much that I was fully a part of this big, wonderful city!”
