The rooms are large, clean and interesting (great furniture and jazz themes). The location is great--just a few blocks from the red or yellow lines--and the neighborhood is charming. Jeremy, the owner, is a trip. He philosophizes but he isn't overbearing. Bernadette, who manages a lot of the day-to-day, is very friendly and interesting. I will not stay anywhere else... More

We booked to stay in 141st and like other reviews which have been left we experienced the potential last minute changing of location, which at a month before we were due to arrive was quite unsettling. Over a period of 3 days we exchanged a number of e-mails with Jeremy at the end of which confirmation was provided that 'Satchimos... More

My friends and I booked this place for 1 night. Let me begin by saying it's a very cute b & b. We had a very nice 2 bedroom spacious area to ourselves with a huge bathroom. Perks included complimentary WiFi and water bottles. That aside the location is terrible. The neighborhood is very shady and it's a long walk... More

Like others, I was left without a room despite booking 5 weeks in advance and having a confirmation. What's worse, it was for my wedding night! I choose this place because it was close to our reception venue and seemed like a charming building. To be fair, the place had character, or at least the dining room did, where I... More

Their website says that the building on 141 St where we stayed is now closed until further notice (they do have another property) but I will review it for when it opens again. This is a property with loads of character and therefore some rough edges (and some poor reviews). If you want big hotel comforts this may not be... More

My boyfriend and I were looking forward to a 3-night stay at Sugar Hill Harlem Inn in late April. We reserved a room approximately 6 weeks prior and were excited by the jazz theme, proximity to the subway, and staying in Manhattan but away from the touristy craziness of everything south of Central Park. Approximately 3 weeks before our stay... More

We are staying in Big Mama's room and are having a great trip. It's a large room, with tons of character and genuine style and filled with very thoughtful touches. There's a huge skylight filling the sparkling bathroom with natural light and lots of space to spread out in. Jeremy, the owner, gave clear directions to a fantastic market (you... More

My wife and I planned a trip to New York for a few days and reserved the Sugar Hill inn in Harlem as our place to stay. When the taxi drove us to the address my wife and I thought there was some mistake, the building looked like some average persons apartment, the door was locked, lights were off and... More

You can go very easily to downtown Manhatan and come back to get a good night sleep for the next day. The beds are very good and you can get a good shower. For a nice breakfast you walk downstairs. You can choose for coffee or tea and you get orange juice. Furthermore you can choose for waffles with nice... More

Was in town for a wedding which happen to be the day after Valentine's Day, so waking up in the Sugar Hill Harlem Inn (SH) with my love on Valentine's Day was perfect. Very quaint and absolutely romantic. If you're looking for super modern, state of the art accommodations, then SH is not for you. The building was authentically New... More
