I had a fantastic experience staying here. As soon as you walk in, you quickly realise why they have called it "cozy" - probably the best word to describe it. Our room was perfect for what we needed with a nice big bed and smart living area. It was clean, tidy and warm which was great considering how cold it... More

I expected more from this inn. The remaining experience within the city has compensated the wretechedness of the attendance. The rooms and accomodations were however acceptable, but nothing exceptional. If shall I return to NYC, I would definitely search for another facilities

As soon as you walk in the cozy inn you get a good feeling. It was nice to see all of the pictures of the guests and some famous faces on the wall. I stayed adjacent to the room JayZ did his first video in...bragging points to my friends back home :) The owner shared some stories about the building... More

I booked the International Cozy Inn through Expedia. This was a great choice. The Inn Keeper was very helpful and nice, and provided extra linen upon request. The owner was never too busy for a chat. The room I stayed in was perfectly planned out and all of the ammenities in the room were true to the description, even the... More

The owners are a mother and daughter who almost never there when you need them. Room is small. Bed is tacky n uncomfortable. The surrounding area looks quite ghetto. Need to give money for safety deposit.

A low service, low maintenance hotel. Room as described and in pictures, with few faults. Ok process, for Manhattan. Good bus/subway connections. Then the faults.. The one most annoying thing (room9, not sure of others) is the placing of the main light switch, the opposite back corner of the room. Come in at night, and have a flash light. Plastic... More

Can't say enough about The Cozy Inn. I stayed there a couple of weeks ago because I had to take a few classes and needed to find something in Manhattan near the school. The hosts Michelle and Ramona are amazing and really do their best to make you feel at home. The room I stayed in was spotless and had... More

Staying in Harlem

Neighborhood Profile
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.
