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

Mar got Guest House offered a large bedroom with an ensuite. It had a New York feel with it's shuttered windows and constant street noise. Even though we were on the top floor we found it difficult to sleep. The rear rooms may be quieter. The location was perfect for getting to anywhere being so close to the subway yet... More

Margot Guest House it is much more than hotel in Manhattan. If you are looking for something different with affordable prices this is your place. You could find a great atmosphere in a neighborhood that is getting better everyday. Located in Spanish HArlem, you could reach every major attraction very easily and little places with soul.

We stayed here for eight nights and loved it. Our accommodation was lovely, the room a very generous size, the bed was comfortable and most importantly as we were there when the temperature got down to minus 27C was warm. The neighbourhood is great with a number of places to eat and drink (our favourite a friendly little bar the... More
