We booked this B&B because of positive Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. It is great! Host Vasilis is wonderfully helpful, even offering to respond to questions via TXT if needed. The house is nicely decorated. Our room was large, air conditioned, with everything we needed or wanted. Breakfasts were a nice "continental plus." (By that, I mean it included at least hard boiled eggs every day, plus breads, yogurts, juice, tea/coffee.) The warm croissants are a highlight. The neighborhood has character, and it's nice to get out of downtown and into an area where real people live. Subway is a short walk, and one of the nearby lines has express trains that put you at Times Square in about 15 minutes. We concur with other Trip Advisor reviewers regarding safety. "Harlem" may conjure up fearful images (friends asked us, "You're seriously staying in Harlem?"), but we felt safe throughout our visit. One just has to use normal city-smarts that are appropriate in any large city. We rode the subway "home" after the theater and felt perfectly safe. There are also bus lines that pass in front of the house, and we took one down 5th Avenue to the museums (Guggenheim, Met). All in all, this was a great stay and we will definintely return to Mt. Morris House when we return to New York!
