I had the best time with my stay at Harlem Renaissance House. This bed and breakfast is housed inside a beautiful building at a great location in Harlem. The place is very well kept, clean and nicely decorated. It was well-suited to the comforts I look for when I travel. The neighborhood felt safe and I had no problems traveling... More

I first stayed at Harlem Renaissance back in 2008 for a job interview after never having been to NYC before. I moved to NYC in 2009 and lived in the city for just under 3 years in Harlem, partly because of my experience at the B&B during my initial visit. I know NYC pretty well and there are many places...

My husband and I have stayed twice at this quiet, charming, historic B&B in the heart of Harlem. We have enjoyed it enormously both times. Rick, the owner, is knowledgable about the City and the local area. He recommended two restaurants for us within easy walking distance, and both were excellent. The rooms are very spacious and private, with in... More

As an experienced traveler I would definitely recommend Harlem Renaissance House to anyone. First, it's located in a very nice part of Harlem: clean, quite, safe and full of historic buildings and beautiful row houses. Second, a subway station is literally next block. So, if you catch the right train it takes almost no time to get to the Central... More

We have stayed at Rick's six times and have been thoroughly pleased with every visit. The rooms are spacious, immaculate and comfortable. We've always managed to find nearby on-street parking and then use the subway, We enjoy chatting with Rick over a breakfast of an abundance of various fresh fruit and a delicious pastry. Rick is available to recommend restaurants... More

Been here 6 times or more now, and always welcome. Now welcomed like an old friend. Clean rooms, quiet and safe. This is a peaceful respite from the city that never sleeps. Rick, the owner is in his own way cool and always has an interesting story and much local knowledge...

The rooms are all of great size- I never felt cramped or... More

I stayed at the Harlem Renaissance House last March and couldn't have had a better experience. All of the amenities that one would hope for at a bed and breakfast were present, the house is conveniently located near two subway stations, and my group encountered no "bumps" of any sort. But the experience was so much more than "sufficient." Rick... More

I recently spent five nights at The Renaissance House. This was my first time staying at this location and it definitely was not my last. Very clean, very safe, great location and well managed. The Renaissance House is a five minute walk to the blue/orange subway lines and the red subway line is a five minute walk in the opposite... More

This was my second visit to the Harlem Renaissance House and just as the first time, I loved my stay. My first visit was a few years ago. I was a 30-something female travelling alone to NYC and stayed for about a week. Before going, I did not know Harlem or NYC however, I loved the location (quiet, beautiful streets,... More
