More than just a bedroom, this space is furnished as its own studio, you only have to share the bathroom! It includes a queen bed, sofa and a well-equipped kitchen area with cabinetry and appliances such as a fridge/freezer, oven, four electric burners, microwave and coffeemaker. Other accessories in the 203sqft (18.8sqm) room include a cable television and a chic decorative fireplace.

Bedroom 2 provides the same type of décor as bedroom 1 (hardwood floors, white molding) but presents green-hued walls instead of purple. It offers a double bed, chair, dining table and old-world decorative fireplace and has its own living room! The living room has a single sofa bed, a dining table with two chairs, a TV and a decorative fireplace. Only a kitchenette is available with fridge and microwave.

Pretty much a below average apartment to stay in , the experience as a whole wasn't great either. Frequent issues with the internet , around 3-4 times a week, that could be solved only by restarting the router which is in the landlord's apartment. I wouldn't recommand it, unless you really want to live alone in Manhattan for a quite affordable price. The neighborhood isn't really a good , too dirty, too crowded and very noisy. The landlord is nice , friendly and helpful , but one day I had a terrible experience with one of her friends, and 80 years old man, who misbehaved by insulting me and swearing at me continuously , just because I didn t want to let my appartment's door open while being out of it. Also , I wasn't allowed to have my friends staying over whenever they were visiting me, unless they would pay extra 20 dollars per night

I am very sorry that our last guest had this experience. We will look to ensure that our future guests have a better time to enjoy the apartment, the neighborhood and the time they spend here in Harlem.
We have a cleaning lady that comes frequently to clean up the hallways and bathrooms. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Our location is accessible to mass transportation on the West side. We will also ensure that there will be no further problems with WiFi accessibility. While we want our guests to have a good time, we can?t have our tenants invite a multitude of people especially in the age of Covid. Our tenants satisfaction is very important to us. We look forward to inviting more guests to stay here. We have had guests literally from all over the world that have enjoyed their stays with us and have recommended our place to other friends and family. We will continue to be a safe, affordable clean place for our guests.
