The studio was presented cleanly and as shown and is situated close to subway, laundry, restaurant and local grocery. The owner was very attentive in all stages of the process and provided helpful information throughout including assistance when one guest fell ill. Well priced and a great alternative to a hotel. I would definitely stay again.

“Authentic, quiet, historic, convenient, peaceful: a true vacation hit!”

We have been many times in New York city, most often in big hotels. This time we decided we would try something different, more authentic, historic, even romantic. Not an easy goal. Downtown was too busy, Queens too far. It had to be a close-by neighborhood. Either Brooklyn or Harlem. We finally picked up Harlem, and we don't regret it.
When we arrived there, we knew we made the right choice: old historic street, very quiet, very pretty building facade. The kind of street you would want to shoot a movie about new york city in the 1900's.
Old outside, very modern inside: kitchen looked all brand new to us, all modern amenities were as announced. More importantly, everything was very clean. One little critique (I have to mention it to remain credible ...) : the main bed mattress was not the most comfortable I slept in, but that was a very minor inconvenience.
The place is incredibly well located: while it's very quiet, it is 5 minutes from the subway, four stops from Time Square. So in 20 minutes, you go from the most peaceful neighborhood to the busiest place on earth!
Let talk a bit about safety. As tourists, we had a few cliche in mind about Harlem. Not enough to discourage us from trying though. Fortunately ... Because we felt totally safe in this place. Not a single problem. Nada. One night, 1pm, we took the wrong line to come back home, and had to walk 45 minutes from Columbia university. Again, We did not feel a bit of insecurity.
A word on the neighborhood. It is both convenient (many stores around) and worthwhile. There are several Jazz places close-by (we did not have time to spend an evening there, which will be a good reason to come back), restaurants, gospel churches, park, etc. We did walk a couple of time from there up to Central Park (15 minutes) and then through the park to downtown (1 hour). Very cool promenade.
I cannot conclude the review without talking about Julie, the property manager. She was just incredibly friendly and helpful all along, waiting for us on the porch when we arrive, providing good hints on the neighborhood, even reserving the taxi when we left.
We would certainly be looking forward to come back. No more hotels after that!

Communication with owners was extemely efficient, prompt and friendly.
Well appointed appartment for whatever time of year you choose to visit.
Close to public transport
Convenient to supermarkets (on Lennox Ave) and food outlets (try Amy Ruth's on 116th for tasty, cheap, authentic Soul Food - consider sharing meals as portions are Big!).
