First impressions are important. Julio and his two lovely daughters were waiting for my family and I to arrive at the guest house. That was a nice touch. After a tour of the space, we were on our own, The house is comfortable and spacious (by NYC standards), the kitchen is well equiped, two bathrooms, who could ask for more? The outside patio with a large grill was an added bonus. Any savy traveler will know by the address and the price, that you are not in Mid-town, but you are within a very easy commute to all points of interest. The Guest house provided us with a comfy home base to return to after our daily adventures. We felt very safe in the neighborhood; it is a wonderful mix of ethnic diversity, full of friendly folks. I hope our daughter finds a job and an apartment in the city so we can come back to visit and stay at the Sylvan Guest House again.
