This place was perfect. They have got a great recipe for a guest house in New York. It was a pleasure to stay, and if we ever visit NY again, we will 100% be coming back. Absolutely immaculate bathroom, kitchen was always spotless. Great coffee available for breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and smelt of fabric conditioner. Very nice... More

This cute place is well put together. The owner is always on-site and available. Very friendly and kept up with my friend and I while we stayed. 

It's a low-cost option in a part of town that is being gentrified. I'm a sturdy guy and felt comfortable walking around the area, but wouldn't recommend a solo, late-night stroll to a... More

La Sienna was an absolutely fantastic place to stay and I recommend it to everyone. Yvette and Carlos were wonderful and kind hosts, and were nothing but lovely to us during our stay. My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks between Christmas and New Years, and we loved it so much that we came back to stay again later... More

It's a great place to stay in NYC: Firstly, it's cheaper than everywhere else in New York City. It's close to subway stations, and really easily reachable from La Guardia Airport (just one bus and you are 2 blocks away from the hotel). Another good thing about this place is that they don't charge any additional taxes to its price,... More

I recently spent three nights in the first floor front apartment in La Sienna in Harlem.I was a little worried that being right my the front door might be noisy with people coming and going at all hours of the day and night, but I have never slept better in my life. The bed is comfortable, and the rules on... More

Both of us loved La Sienna. It's of the utmost importance that you have in mind that La Sienna is an Hostel and not an Hotel. Having said this I'll begin my review. I'll start with the overall experience and then I'll talk about the rooms. Yes, La Sienna is located in the Harlem. But you have a Police Station... More

We didn't want to spend all our money on accommodation in NY, so after reading lots of comments on here, we decided to book a room in La Sienna, as it seemed to offer the best value for the price. (abt. 90 $ per night for a double with shared bathroom&kitchen). La Sienna is conveniently located in walking distance of... More

The information from this review is incorrect. A Hotel has 24 hour concierge service and will give you anything you want but you have to pay for it. A Hostel has several bunks beds in one room with strangers sleeping together. You need to meet certain requirements and have a special license to do that. This is a private three... More

Traveled Sept 2012 We have been to New York a few times, and were heading on to Orlando for two week holiday therefore we didn't want to break the budget on accommodation in New York. We had stayed in Manhattan the last few times we had been in New York, therefore after much searching we booked La Sienna. We paid... More

Spent 4 nights recently & its a cute little typical NY brownstone. The owners are quite helpful, the access to kitchen & basic supplies welcome. You would be sharing the bathroom with other rooms but we never faced a problem in terms of availability. Manny has 2 dogs, a little girl called Sophie who was really playful :). The room... More

This place is special. I've been there two times (once by myself and once with a friend) and I would stay there again and again. About the structure all you have to know is that it's clean, safe, functional, in a strategic location close to the subway which takes you anywhere in NYC. If you're looking for an aseptic place,...
