Neighbourhood
Harlem
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.

"Avoid 3rd floor if you have trouble with the stairs."
"If you are older people ask for bedroom on the ground room or basement."
"Before you book, just ask them if you will have your toilet on your floor."
"Avoid this place"
"Be aware that the smallest room is very small - although nicely decorated - and doesn't have a window, so while it is reasonably priced, it might be worth paying a little extra for a slightly bigger room. Had a fantastic stay though."
