Description
1 Bedroom Vacation Rental in Harlem (NY-14252)

This one bedroom vacation rental apartment for rent is nestled in Manhattan’s Uptown community of Harlem, New York. Located on Fifth Avenue & 124th Street, this fully furnished apartment sits on the 3rd floor of a four-story walk up 19th century brownstone building. It is perfectly suited for budget travelers who need a convenient place to stay.

The entrance to this home provides access to the living room, lined with hardwood floors and boasting two large windows overlooking 5th Avenue. Having been built during the pre-war era, this room continues to emit a kind of old-world charm with its relaxing decorative fireplace set against one wall. Ample table space is available to accommodate workloads, recreational activities, and meal space. One twin-sized chair bed and one twin-sized sofa bed accommodate overnight guests. Fresh sheets are included for these beddings. For indoor entertainment, a cable television is available. For added personality, pictures scatter white walls lined with wood trimming.

Attached to the living room is an open kitchen. To one side of this corridor, generous closet space is available for item storage. The kitchen features tiled flooring and wooden cabinets. It is equipped with most necessary cooking appliances including a microwave, fridge, freezer, oven/stove, and coffeemaker.

The bedroom offers a queen sized bed with fresh sheets. Two windows allow for natural lighting and ventilation, while an overhead fan with lamp provides additional illumination. Abundant surface space including a nightstand and desk accommodate completion of workloads and recreational activities. A chair sits next to the bed offering additional seating space, facing a second decorative fireplace.

Please note: This building is located at a busy 5th Avenue intersection. As such, street noise may be heard throughout the day and night. During the month of November, the NYC Marathon passes right in front of the building.

    We stayed in this apartment during the holiday season, for 10 days. It was bigger than we thought! Very well-equipped and heated (it was - 10 degrees Celsius outside). Close to subway station which serves Manhattan. There was a bus stand just in front of the building...
    We felt safe in this area! We read that it was noisy, it certainly was in the living room because of the firefighter and policemen sirens but the bedroom is on the other side of the apartment and overlooks a dead end, so we didn't hear anything!
    In short, this vacation rental is really great and the owner is adorable!

    The apartment is as shown in the pictures. It is near 125 Avenue, where you can find supermarkets and shops, and 2 blocks away from the main train and bus stations. The apartment is on the second floor, in a walk-up building, so it is a bit hard to go up the stairs with big and heavy bags, although it was not a problem for us. The check-in and the check-out were pretty easy with Kevin, he was always available for us. The unit is big and comfortable, it has all the necessary things to live pleasantly. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. Note that water takes a while to heat and then it is really hot. The building is an original brownstone house... Kevin does a very good maintenance of the apartment.

      Gabriela,
      heavy bags are heavy bags but as you said "it was not a problem". We make it work here. sorry that you had to wait for the hot water a bit but as you said it came and when it did I am sure it was ok. However, overall it seems you enjoyed your stay here and all of New YOrk.
      Please come back.

    Accommodation Rental: 8 days

    We were very nicely welcomed by the owner who lives in the building. He is kind and helpful. He brought us a pack of sparkling water and didn't even ask for a deposit. The apartment is well-located, at the beginning of Harlem area, close to subway and in front of a bus stop. It is very quiet and comfortable. Good bedding, clean sheets and towels: no problem. However, we would have liked it to be better cleaned: there were some used tissues under the bed and garbage cans were not emptied for instance. Anyway, we will have very good memories of our stay in New York.

    Sep 16 2017
    • Answer by:
      Accommodation Owner

      Mathieu, Thanks for the review and pointing out certain unacceptable things. The tissue under the bed and trash in the garbage cans are unacceptable. I apologize and will step up the supervision. Again, my apology and I hope to see you again. It is my pleasure that you generally enjoyed your stay.

    We spent 10 days in this apartment with 3 teenagers (18, 18 and 14). We had a very good stay. It is very well-appointed and the double bedroom is perfect. Of course, the living room/dining area is quickly crowded with 3 teenagers but we were on vacation. The apartment is clean, quieter than expected. Excellent value for money. Owner is very laid back and nice. Definitely, a very good experience.

    Host was very accommodating in spite of our arrival about 2 a.m. He was always available by text to answer questions. Very convenient location for M60 bus with direct transport to La Guardia terminals. We were there during a heat wave and although there was no air conditioning, the high ceilings and ceiling fans made it quite comfortable.

    The disadvantage is that there is no elevator and the stairs are narrow. It is quite tiring if you get back home at night and you have to go up 3 floors with a kid in your arms.
    The pots and the bath towels would need to be renewed.
    The rest was excellent.

    Nov 21 2016
    • Answer by:
      Accommodation Owner

      Martha, thanks for taking the time. Yes, there is no elevator and I never represented that there was one. However, I am glad that overall you enjoyed your stay once you reach the apartment. No one has really complained before. The towlls are plenty not all match but they are definitely not tattered. The pots are used, of course, and upon examination I see one was a bit to used and I have replaced it, Thanks. Travelling with an infant will call for some extras.

    Accommodation Rental: 7 days

    My host, Kevin, was very welcoming and easy with arrival and departure times. Super friendly and informative about getting around and a few things to do. No complaints about Kevin. Unfortunately there were a few key issues with the apartment. It was dirty. Kitchen in particular was filthy (Fridge interior was clean). It was a lot shabbier than the photos, especially for the price. The TV did not work at all. I had asked ahead about a blowdryer and there were two on site but one had a european plug so not usable and the second did not work and was sticky to handle. Bedding was very shabby and minimal. Pillows were old, compressed and lumpy. They all smelled clean thankfully. Towels, too, were clean but all mismatched and some very worn (I only used one towel, one cloth and one hand towel). Bathroom was clean enough. Dishes were mismatched and old. I did not cook during my stay but used the kettle a couple of times and the fridge and a couple of dishes. But the stove and walls were all splattered and sticky from prior guests. I wasn't expecting quiet so while loud at times, I can't complain that that was unexpected. The location for a tourist is OK but a bit sketchy along 125th. 125th down was great. Recommendations: THOROUGH cleaning prior to each guest. replace all bedding (for the spare beds too as it looked really old) with sheets, pillows, duvet with washable cover. Simple kitchen set up with dishes, flatware, cooking utensils etc and nice towels/dishcloths. Papertowels and extra garbage bags on hand (there were none of either). I did appreciate the space and location for my needs (I was in a course close by) but would not return to that apartment. I like Kevin though.

    • Answer by:
      Accommodation Owner

      Colleen, I am a little disappointed that although you found me to be friendly and helpful you could not mention any of these things to me while you were here. Had you done so you would have seen my quick response to address all your needs. I checked the Hairdryer after reading your comment and found it to be in working order and wiped it. I told you the TV was not working and I was waiting for the cable to come fix it. I had only notice it the day before you arrived. Most people do not watch TV and no one ever told me that it did not work. Now, the cable box has been replaced and it is all in working order. I am extremely disappointed that you found the place to be dirty/ filthy especially to the degree you say. Utensils and dishes started off as sets and maybe one was broken along the way and individually replaced. I just don't understand about the words shabby and minimal. all sheets and bedding are of good quality and washed regularly. Surely, the pillows didn't stink because they are washed regularly. However, just to let you know I took your suggestion and replaced all pillows to make sure the fluff is present.

      I am very disappointed in your displeasure with your stay. Although you were alone, often there are up to five guests staying in that unit and it does take a licking. That is no excuse for lack of cleaning but thank you for your very critical review. We will try to keep up better with the upkeep. Thank you

    The owner was always checking on us. He was very kind and helpful and he made us feel at home. Our communication was excellent. The apartment is comfortable but the building is a bit old. In my opinion, the apartment should need a better cleaning, especially the kitchen. The bathroom is spotless, which is very pleasant. You can hear some noise because the apartment is in a very busy area, but that's not something negative. I am happy with the overall stay.

      Anna, thanks for your review and I will pay special attention to it. New York is not necessarily a quiet place anywhere but I hope and it soulnds like it was not that much of a burden. NY is alive especially in the Summer and my building sits right in the middle of the city. Hope to see you again.

    we stayed for almost 2 weeks in the apartment in Harlem (with a 3 year old child) and really enjoyed our trip there. at the first glance, the neighborhood looked a bit scary but it we always felt safe there and did not experience any uncomfortable situation! the apartment is very close to 2 main subway stations (without elevator access by the time!) and a downtown bus route stops right at the door front (good to go to the central park). a public swimming pool and playgrounds are around the corner. shopping and dining is limited within walking distance, so you have to plan a bit.
    the apartment itself fits right into Harlem, a bit worn, not too fancy (a new table and chairs would be great!), but everything works fine and everything you need is there. it surely is a bit noisy with A/C on or window open, but you're in NY and it wasn't really a problem for us or the little one! managing to check in and out was really easy and Kevin is a very nice guy and gave good advice to get around and what to do during the stay. be aware that you will always need to plan for some travel time to any downtown destination as there is not too much to explore in the area [riding the metro for half an hour and more one way gets a bit boring after a week (^_^)].
    we can certainly recommend that place and would take it again, the next time we're in the city. we have been scanning the market a bit and early in time and I'm still convinced that this a good offer and value for the money!

      Stefan thanks for taking the time to write this review. I am glad that overall you found your stay here a pleasant one. Just two blocks over is what is known as restaurant row with plenty of options. The new table you suggested was delivered shortly after you left. Otherwise, I try to keep everything clean and sturdy because of the constant flow of guests the unit does take a beating.
      Traveling downtown (Eastside 3 stops to 42 street and Westside 5 stops) or being downtown and have to travel uptown or Brooklyn all requires a few minutes. The beauty of my location is the transportation #2and 3 subway is one block, 4,5 &6 is three block walk and the A,C, D and B are 4 blocks away. In addition, there are about 6 bus routes all within 2 blocks. Basically, whereever you are in the city the transportation can get you here and you can get to about everywhere directly.

      Thanks for your visit and I do hope to see you again.

    Very nice apartment. Ideal location in Harlem. Next to supermarkets and transportation. Quiet and pleasant. Owner was flexible about our departure time. Kitchen was very well equipped.
    To be improved: the blinds do not prevent the light from coming in, it is a shame. Getting hot water is complicated.

Well heated and well equipped apartment. Cleaning was superficial. Trash can was not emptied and fridge was dirty... Walls should be repainted.

      Sonia, thanks for taking the time. I will check and do some painting as needed. As you can probably imagine guest handlinging their luggage can always bump into walls. I cannot imagine the trash can was not emptied but if you said it wasn't that is it. I apologize for that and will always make sure that it is. As the issue with the refrigerator I usually check and clean and empty as needed. Again, thanks for your reply and I will check and make sure I inform those that do the house keeping.

      Béatrice, I am sorry that the stairs were a problem for you, but it is clearly advertised on my apartment page that this is a walk-up apartment. The pictures are only a few months old and the apartment is exactly as the pictures show.
      And rather than having the two guests you originally booked, there were three, and no one wanted to pay as was arranged with the agency. The agreement is made with the agency and should be kept.

Excellent location to the subways, shops and parks, (my boys love the park for the basketball court).. We had the opportunity to watch the Marathon from the starting to the end right infront of the build. Sounds like great fun. Although toilet lock had to be change for flexible movement so as to avoid minors locking themselves up in and out of the toilet. Other than that. Splendid!!!

      Enny thanks for taking time to write the review and I am glad you and your boy nhad a wonderful stay overall. As I explained to you and as you probably know toilet locks are to keep others from coming in when occupied Your boy locked the door then closed the door when leaving the bathroom. What he did was kept anyone else from entering and using the toilet. You had been in the place for nearly a week without a problem and I really dont think this should have been a problem for a child about 12 -14 years old. Again I am glad you had a great trip.

It's not the best to sleep untill late morning cause it's on the 5th street but for us it was not a problem. Per gli italiani è perfetto: in mezzo a due fermate di metro, fornito di tutto e a buon prezzo considerato che si è a Manhattan (il proprietario è molto easy e gentile)

    The apartment is well located, next to 2 subway stations serving the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 lines (within a 10 minute walk) and the bus stop is at the foot of the building. Downtown Manhattan is reachable in 15 to 20 minutes with the subway. The owner is very friendly and helpful. This Harlem neighborhood is very quiet even at night and filled with various shops. The Apollo Theater is a 15 minute walk. At our arrival, the apartment was very clean and some towels were supplied. Some of the furnishings could be updated as they are quite worn-out.

    The apartment is well located, quite close to 2 subway lines. On the other hand, it is difficult to park for several days with parking rules that change from one day to the next. We also found a private parking space that still cost $26 per day, to fit in the budget.
    The apartment is in a old character building with beautiful parquet floor. It is very bright, a bit noisy indeed because of the street (it overlooks 5th avenue), but we knew this before and it was bearable. The bed is very comfortable and our 3 children slept well on the extra beds.
    We were welcomed by the host's daughter, she was very nice. It is a pity the floors were not very clean and there weren't enough flatware and top sheets (and globally, there isn't much dishware), but we managed (we could also have told him). It also lacked a toaster.
    But on the whole, regarding value for the money, we were very pleased.

      Thanks for your review, Pascale. Some guest park on the street and some in the various parking lots in the neighborhood. The choice is the guest. If it is parked at the right time, that i usually help them with they can stay parked for probably 3 days without having to move it. A little noise comes with being in the center of things. However, I do think it is bearable. I have to check and make sure that there is at least 5 sets of flatware (the maximum amount allowed for this unit.) I will also make sure that the top sheets are available, the top sheets were probably in the laundry. Yes, you could have mentioned all of this and it would have been taken care of immediately. But I am glad you did enjoy yourself. The apartment is usually cleaned and mopped prior to all arrivals. I will check and recheck in the future to make sure that the apartment is thoroughly cleaned. See you next time.

    We did enjoy our first time in New York and we were very pleased with the apartment. I booked this apartment on recommendation of my sister. She stayed in the same building as us a couple of years ago. Her review made us chose for the same building.

    We had the apartment on the second floor and we were absolutely pleased with it. The apartment was very spacious, we had a nice living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a big bedroom and a clean bathroom. We had the possibility to cook our own dishes and to make our own breakfast which was a big plus for us.

    Our landlord Kevin was such a nice person. He helped us with everything we needed and gave us some great tips about must see attractions and how to get to the nice in different ways. He made us feel at home abroad.

    The apartment is well situated in New York with a bus stop in front of the house and 2 metro stations at walking distance. Every day we got to different parts of New York using public transport nearby.

    The apartment was clean upon arrival.

    The apartment was in a good condition, we had everything we needed to spent a nice holiday in New York. The air conditioning was working well (we needed it because of the hot weather) and the fans were much appreciated during the night.

    We only had a problem with finding the right temperature in the shower. Mostly it got ice cold are very hot. We struggled with it the whole week.

    The house was in a good condition, only the smoke alarm dock needed a new battery. It beeped constantly and this was sometimes a bit annoying.

    At night some traffic and street noises entered the room. Since it was so hot outside we had to open the windows for some fresh air. The pond noises at the back side were relaxing though :).

    In general we were very happy with the apartment. We'll certainly recommend this place and will book it the next time we're travelling to New York!

      Thanks for your time and words in this review. I wish you would have told me about the smoke detector battery and the problems with the water.

      The problems with both could have probably been remedied easily. The batteries on the smoke detector have since been changed and I will attempt to show future guests how to operate the single handle shower body. As for people walking by, traffic and other noise on fifth avenue, it is not in my control, especially if the windows are open. You always have the option of closing the windows and running the a/c.

      However, overall, I am glad that you discovered the convenience of transportation, spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation, and the central locations of my home.

    Very kind host. The room is spacious, clean and well appointed. It just lacked a toaster, but the oven made up for it. The kitchen, the fridge and the bathroom are in very good condition and very clean.

    The location is fine for the price. The noise level in the bedroom is livable. Unfortunately, the window on the street side doesn't shut in a "soundproof" way because of the built-in A/C unit. However, this is typically American so it can only partly be faulted.

    Overall, we had a very nice stay in New York and the big and beautiful accommodation certainly played its part.

      Thanks Thomas and I am very glad you enjoyed your stay. You are right that the way the air condition sits in the window it allows some noise to filter through, but that is the trade off.

      Toasters have been a problem keeping up with crumbs in the past so I elected not to include one. I am glad to know that you knew to just toast it in the oven.

      Emmanuelle, thanks for your response about the wifi connection being slow. I have installed an Extender and hopefully this will help in the connection and the speed for future guest and your return.

      Harlem is generally relatively safe in the daytime and evenings, but as all of New York and most other places the later it gets walking on the main streets are always recommended. No guest in the last 3 years has had a problem in Harlem coming and going, that they have not had in the other parts of the city.

      But at this point nightlife in Harlem is thriving and people are out all over the place, especially one block away.

      Thank you -Kevin

    We fully enjoyed our 5-day stay in this apartment which is well equipped and offers easy access to public transport, with a bus stop just in front and two subway lines at walking distance.

    Moreover, the landlord Kevin, is most helpful and charming and we have appreciated his wise advice on what to see in Harlem. We recommend this apartment for its good quality/price ratio.

    Owner is very nice, always willing to help and always willing to improve your stay. The apartment is one block away from the [2] and [3] lines and two blocks away from the [4],[5] and [6] lines. Making it easily accessible to the rest of Manhattan.

    The apartment is well furnished with all of the necessary equipment. It is also very well decorated and the bathroom is very well upgraded. The apartment is clean, safe and has nice views of the neighborhood. 125th Street does feel a bit sketchy at times during the late hours, but as long as you mind your own business no one will harass you or anything like that.

    As for noise, well it's the city that never sleeps. It wasn't a major problem at all, in fact it help create a nice city atmosphere.

    So overall the apartment is great, I'm definitely going to rent it next time I visit New York. I recommend it! And I want to say thank you to the owner for the help and greeting we got in New York. It was a pleasure to live there!

      Thanks Domenico, I am glad you overall had a nice stay and felt that the overall attributes of staying here far out weighed the negatives of New York City street late at night. You have to watch yourself all over NYC in the late hours of night.

      I recommend when it gets past a certain hour for everyone to catch a cab to the front door. Coming from clubs or elsewhere 1, 2, 3 in the morning can be a little sketchy on 125th street as well as elsewhere.

      However, the one block walk from the subway is generally no problem and has not been a problem for anyone up until this point. I look forward to your return.

    Clean and serene is how it felt to stay here, especially after I put away several folding chairs into the closet. The bed was just heavenly to sleep in, and the quirky bathroom sink was a very fun design touch.

    Kevin was attentive and helpful, also knowledgeable about the sights to see. And Marcus Garvey Park is just across the street -- a beautiful place.

    Warm welcome. Vacation rental in a good location fairly near midtown by bus and subway. The extra beds though are a bit small for tall adults. Nevertheless, good quality for the money.

    Light sleepers might feel less comfortable sleeping on the side of 5th avenue - noisier.

    Apr 28 2013
    • Answer by:
      Accommodation Owner

      Thank you Sylvie, these are not regular beds but sleeping accommodations that consist in an armchair bed, a sofa that can serve as a bed, and an air mattress. I believe the beds are standard size.

      Fifth avenue is one of the busiest streets in NY with some traffic all day. However, the bedroom is in the back where the only noise is my neighbor's wonderful Coy Pond.

    I very much enjoyed my stay here. Although I only spoke to the owner over the phone, I found him to be helpful and courteous. The area itself is fine. A typical busy, urban area. A little seedy at night perhaps but just be aware of your surroundings just as you would in any other area. I had no problems with safety and felt comfortable.

    There are several department stores and places such as Applebees to eat that are in close proximity. Transportation was also a huge plus. The 2/3 line is just two blocks away while the 4/5 line is just 4 or 5 blocks away. The M60 bus which goes straight to La Guardia was right in front of the building. You cannot beat that!

    The apartment itself was pretty good size. It was well kept and cozy and had sufficient amenities.

    This vacation rental is very well located - #1 bus to Central Park / 5th Avenue right outside the apartment and two subways stations less than a 5-minute walk. The accommodation is comfortable. There's everything you need in the kitchen to cook a few meals and prepare breakfast.

    The host is accommodating regarding arrival and departure times. You can leave your luggage until late on your departure day.

    Vacation rental to be recommended.

    Our stay in NYC went very smoothly. The apartment is awesome! Clean, welcoming, bright, well equipped, in short, nothing to complain about. On top of that, the owner is sweet... attentive, always there for tips and info. A real delight!

    As regards the location in Manhattan... it can be a little 'worrying' as it is off centered from downtown. But here again, no problem, public transportation is 'at your fingertips': one subway station is located one block to the west and another one 3 blocks eastwards from the apartment, and even better, the bus goes right past the building and takes you directly to 5th Avenue, right in the heart of the Big Apple.

    You can rent this apartment in a heartbeat. As for me, I'll sure go back!!!

    Welcoming and friendly owner. Spacious apartment, but isn't very comfortable. Worn furniture and not enough kitchen utensils for 4 people.

    Sep 07 2012
    • Answer by:
      Accommodation Owner

      The utensils were an issue before and I added more than enough for 5 people. I will check again and add as needed, enough for 5 people the maximum amount I rent to. Had the guest just mentioned this it could have been taken care of very easily. I often ask all guest if everything is ok and for whatever reason they never say anything.

      I will add new chairs for the dining table, but other than that I think the furniture is adequate for the constant wear and tear. The more people in a place the less comfortable it is. I can add more furniture but it will cut down the space for more guest. Again, I will check when the present guest leave and update as much as I can with keeping in mind that I rent to up to 5 guest.

      Thank you for your feedback. We have taken your comments into account and shared them with the owner with the purpose of improving our services going forward.

      The owner said that the air conditioners don't make any more noise than any average AC unit, and that if the apartment does get warm, guests can turn all of the AC's, as there is one in every room.

      We would also like to add that when compared to the regular bed in the bedroom, the convertible bed, sofabed, and aero-bed in the living room are less comfortable, because these three are indeed intended as short-term sleeping solutions only.

      The unit is within one block of the west side train and 3 blocks of the east side train. On the corner there is the M60 that goes to La Guardia airport for $2.25. In front of the building is the #1 bus that goes down Fifth Avenue (Museum Mile). Within one block you can ride a bus to most points of Manhattan.

    The host M. Kevin welcomed us very warmly and also gave us useful tips for our stay.

    Our accommodation, located in Harlem, although a little far from the center of Manhattan is in an ideal location for transportation: there is a bus line in front the building that goes along fifth avenue down to south Manhattan, and a little further in both directions there are two subway lines with quick commute to the east and the west of the island.

    Hard to beat! And also, an apartment rental is more "personal" than staying in a hotel room, you can go back home whenever you feel like it, have dinner there rather than have to go the restaurant etc... the only downside is connected to the city itself and is the noise.

    Hey, yes, New York, the city that never sleeps, is noisy! With the traffic noise, the noise from the locals (Harlem is a lively neighborhood!), the blaring sirens from the fire engines, the ambulances and the police cars (which are even more impressive in the middle of the buildings in Manhattan as the noise reverberates against the walls, you just can't not notice them!), and with the noise coming from our apartment surroundings (a fountain in a backyard just below our window, or the so convenient bus stop which sometimes becomes a bit annoying in the evening or in the morning when the bus actuator and alarm device are activated to put the bus at curb level...)

    Yes, New York is noisy, but you get used to it. And being tired helped us sleep...

    From the point of view of tourists in New York for two week, it is a welcoming city where you don't feel unsafe (forget your prejudice about Harlem whilst keeping your basic common sense and everything will go smoothly!)

    In short, we were happy with our stay and with the apartment itself.

    it's the 2nd time we choose this accommodation for our stay in new york and we were delighted. The bedroom looks over a very quiet inner yard, but the extra beds are in the sitting room looking over the street where there's much more traffic. The host is very nice and available to give information on new york.

    Downtown is easy to reach with the 2 subway stations you can choose from. The bars in Harlem with live music are great.

    The apartment is located in Harlem. A wonderful starting point to reach the subway an to go anywhere in Manhattan. We used the bedroom for one person and the bed in the living room for the other person - that was OK.

    The owner of the appartment is very helpful. He can give many tips to tourists concerning the highlights in Manhattan and also concerning the subway and the buses and the airtrain. Just 200 meters away there is a small supermarket - very comfortable for buying food and beverages.

    The cleanliness of the kitchen equipment could better. And the fittings of bath and shower are a little bit complicated. It was not easy to get warm water - but after a while it works. Don?t stop trying.

    All in all it was a good price-performance ratio.

    Two of us stayed for two weeks in late Sept/early Oct. Landlord's relaxed, laid back style contributed to a wonderful holiday. Take his advice and visit The Highline & The Shrine - well worth it. Apartment was comfortable, spacious and well appointed (the only thing we'd suggest is a little extra cooking cutlery). Location was great, the bus stopping right outside the door & subways a short walk to either the east or west.

    Large supermarket within 5 mins, great smaller deli with lots of organic products just around the corner, and our favourite mid-size deli, 'Best Yet', about 15mins walk on Frederick Douglas Blvd. Apartment felt secure, and location of bedroom at back where it was quieter meant sleeping wasn't a problem. Overall we felt it was good value for money and would recommend it to others.

    The accommodation is very well served by public transport, close to two subway lines and a direct bus line that goes to the city centre runs past the front door. 125th street next door is sometimes a bit noisy but we took this as part of the New York experience.

    In short we recommend this vacation rental without hesitation.

    The apartment met our expectations, it is perfect for 3 people, ideally situated close to subway or bus in front of the building. Harlem is a nice neighborhood and offers all facilities. The owners are delightful and give good tips on New York.

    Little downside, in my opinion, the 2nd sofa bed in the living room is too small and uncomfortable to be used as a bed (if there are 4 people). Otherwise, bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living room are as described by NYH and as expected. Recommended for 3.
