We didn't stay at the 127th but at the 132th apartment. Anyway, the apartment was excellent for a family of 4 persons, spacious and calm, well located in Harlem, easily accessible by metro and bus. Bert was absolutely charming, competent and helpfull. A very good recomandation ;-)

A group of friends have just returned from the Chic & Budget Hotel. The stay was absolutely wonderful. The apartment was perfect, just what we needed. Perfect location, close to Manhattan, to Washington Heights, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. Accesible to buses and Train Station. Many shops around and delicious soul food restaurants. Bert was very helpful and provided us... More

Had a brilliant time in New York. Bert, the host, made me feel welcome as I arrived. The place is nice and the neighborhood exciting. Harlem had a bad rep back in the 90s. This is no longer the case and the area offers loads of opportunities. Bert will go through it all when you arrived. They even give you... More

Very happy with this place. In a characterful neighbourhood in Harlem, close to 2 subway stations giving easy connection to downtown Manhattan. Spacious and pleasant apartment with kitchen amenities available. Bert was friendly and helpful.

Hi Burt, We were lucky that you were fully booked. So you gave us a whole appartment instead of the rented room. We felt very welcome and you gave us a short briefing of the city. Thank you for your hospitality!

The owner, Bert, has several properties in this area of Harlem, NYC. He met us at our apartment and personally handed over the keys and showed us up to the accommodation. He showed us around and explained where everything was and then sat us down at the kitchen table with a large map of NYC where he highlighted all the... 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.
