I planned to stay here with a friend at the beginning of May. We told we would arrive at 6, but when we came at that time the room was not ready yet, and the owner seemed overwhelmed by having to do 3 rooms in one day. The whole place is rather old fashioned, and not in a good shape.... More

I stayed in this B&B for three nights in May 2013. The area is nice and overall safe, with some good places where to enjoy live music. However, I wasn't very happy with my experience at this B&B: my bedroom was untidy, dirty and smelly. I found bedbugs crawling around and I spent the four days of my stay making... More

We visited the Thomas Family B&B in the middle of May. We stayed for 3 nights and I don't think that we could have chosen a better place. The bed and breakfast is in the back of a townhouse in Harlem. Well located approximately 100m from a Subway station you will definitley be impressed by what you find here. The... More

There is no internet access either Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable in the bed and breakfast at all. I used up a day of my holiday running around in a strange city sorting out a usb dongle ( $141 it cost ) for internet access as I had to work. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The bed and breakfast is in... More

This B&B is a very good alternative to noisy hostels. For the first time I could sleep in New York City without earplugs! The metro station is located just around the corner. The owners are very nice and buy what you need for breakfast. The kitchen could be a little bit cleaner though... Very good for low budget travellers!

A very nice place in the heart of Harlem, where you could enjoy the new yorkese life. Subway is 2mn, and it will bring you downtown in 15mn. Bars, restaurants, churches (with fabolous gospel choirs on sundays), stores, etc. are also nearby the hotel. A special thanks to Yolanda who's the nicest hostess I've ever met, and who will enlight... More
