I've stayed at the guest house twice, once in June of 2013 and June of 2014. Very charming accomadtaions. My travel mates and I shared the third floor which has 3 bedrooms of varying sizes. It kind of feels like staying at yur grandmas house for the summer. /there's a washer and dryer on that floor so we kept our... More

Stayed in a single room. Had a comfy single bed enough room to store case and walk around the bed. Can't expect anymore space than that in nyc, especially for the price. Clean room and bathroom. Breakfast out in the kitchen so was good for me as good grab something quickly as I get up very early. The keeper was... More

I can't review the property because the day before I was scheduled to leave the owner emailed me and told me that I was now staying at another property. While the lady that in charge of the new property was very sweet and helpful, the property itself was not equal in quality to the 144! It also did not provide... More

This place is awesome. I don't give five star reviews but the place and valerie were outstanding. The rooms were so charming and really had a vintage feel. I felt excited to leave and come back. It really felt like a home that I didnt have to clean or decorate. It was extremely clean and the bathroom was goregous. We... More

First at all this Harlem Guesthouse is very well located, near the metro that takes you to manhattan center in 5 minutes. The Guesthouse is really nice, a kind of old style wood decoration and the room I was, the cheaper one, was really clean, luminous and with AC and excellent WiFi. Harlem is a great neighborhood to stay, authentic,... More

I'm a gay male from Indianapolis, Indiana and I visited NYC in June 2013. I decided to stay in Harlem at a beautiful brownstone guest house called 'Harlem 144 Guest House'. I was amazed by the quality of service, the beautiful art and cozy antique furniture. The place was clean, warm and fresh at the same time. The owner of... More

The brownstone has that 1800's charm, but all the charm is negated by the laziness and rudeness of the owner, Valerie. My husband and I came with a group and stayed 5 days/ 4 nites.When we arrived, the bathroom & kitchen wastebasket was full and began to overflow until we emptied it. We were offered milk that was dated Jan.... More

Everything was dirty and so old in this B&B! Valery the owner is very not welcomy and not kind at all. She doesn't know how to smile with her guests. I very disliked this trip due to her behaviour. I do not recommend this hotel!!!!!!!!! And milk and yogourts for our so-called "breakfast" were out of date: dis-gus-ting!!

I stayed at this guesthouse for a week in November 2012 with my mother and I really enjoyed it. The price is really good for New York and the location is perfect. The closest subway station is just five minutes from the guesthouse and you can get to Times Square in about ten minutes from there. The neighborhood is really... More

Nice B&B in a safe Harlem neighboorhood. House is charming and clean. Hostess is helpful and open. Rooms are old fashioned clean. If you have no objection with sharing a bathroom and kitchen, this is a great place to stay. Metro's just a couple of blocks away. Central park at walking distance. Good deal.

Staying in Harlem

Neighborhood Profile
Harlem
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighborhood 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 neighborhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
