I spent 2 weeks here and didn't want to leave! I still want to go back, I loved the area. Being more of a non-tourist, I wanted to spend time in a neighborhood rather than the city center of hustle and bustle. This place was perfect. Felt like I really lived in East Harlem for a while, the area is... More

Staying at Margot Guest House gives you an opportunity to spend time in an authentic neighborhood in the Upper East Side of Manhattan - much more interesting than a clinical hotel experience! Walk out the front door of this lovely old brownstone terrace and say hello to friendly locals, shop at the supermarket and buy take out from the many... More

This place is simply perfect, we stayed 4 nights, we slept very well (perfect mattress) and we had all the amenities in our room. It was like being in a french house somewhere in Paris. Todd the owner is an excellent host, he speaks a fluent french, he took his time to explain us how to move in the city,... More

The location is kind of nice, because it's close to the subway, north Central Park and East Harlem; the owner is kind of nice, but charged us more than the $ 60 for our late arrival without ever saying why; the room is kind of nice, but we stayed for 9 nights and the sheets were never changed; the decoration...

This is a great place to stay if you want to experience living in New York! It's uptown but close to the subway and there are lots of places to eat nearby. The owner is very friendly and helpful with advice on how to get around and what to see. I highly recommend this place if you want a little... More

The room was clean and nice. We arrive late at 1h30 in the morning and the onwer was waiting for us. We know that we will to pay 60$ but once arrive in Europe we were surprised because our Credit card was charge for 123€. Still waiting for an answer from the onwer, for more than 2 weeks.

A friend and I stayed here this past week. We loved that the room is quite large and was kept very clean. It has easy access to the subway, and central park. The owners are friendly, helpful and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again on a future trip to NYC.

Margot Guest House was exactly the type of establishment we were hoping for. We wanted no part of the insanity that was Times Square for our first visit to New York. Our trip (my boyfriend and I) was during the first weekend of June. The main purpose was for Governor's Ball, a music fest on Randal's Island. We couldn't have... More

I booked it for my parents for six nights when they came to visit us. They were extremely satisfied about the place. The room was spacious and cozy, furnished with everything they needed. They said will always stay there in their future trips to New York. Todd the owner is very friendly and arranged everything perfectly.

If you're looking for a different NYC experience that doesn't involve time square and overpriced chain hotels then the Margot House is for you. The owner Todd, gives you the ins and outs of the area along with all the wonderful places to eat and visit during your stay. Are the rooms dated? Yes, to a degree, but think of... More
