then it's OK. 60 USD per night for a single room. A bit expensive if compared to the European equivalent (and does not include breakfast of course). The showers were not exactly in proper running condition, but again, good enough for a tired traveler.

The staff is very bad and not helpful. I have booked by phone and when arrived I didn't have a room. So they put me in another one. I've stayed here for 15 min!! The hole places stinks, is dirty, the bathrooms are very dirty! Harlem is a bad place to stay: dangerous and far away from the centre.

Staying in Harlem

Neighborhood Profile
Harlem
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.
