Based on other reviews on tripadvisor I decided to book Allie's Inn B&B, definitely an excellent decision!
I was welcomed by a handwritten, personalized postcard. My room, the Garden View room, was on the backside of the building and very quiet. I had a small kitchen with coffee machine, toaster, oven, and fridge. When I arrived my fridge was filled with breakfast for my entire stay (muesli, coffee, orange juice, milk, water, cream cheese, rolls, oranges, grapes, pineapple, fruit mix), which was very convenient as I could eat whenever I wanted to.
The subway station is a 1 min walk, it takes about 20 min to Times Square. Another subway is located at 125th Street, with an express conncetion to downtown. At 125th there are also various cloth stores and restaurants including fast food.
The room was very clean and I could even drop part of my baggage a week before I finally stayed in New York. They were very nice and helpful. Other amenities included wireless internet, tv, radio, bath robe, umbrella, and information about the city and airport shuttle.
Considering what I paid for hotels downtown in the past (with noise, smelly/dirty rooms, no kitchen) I am glad that I found this little secret B&B. A clean, quiet big room with kitchen is definitely worth taking the subway for 20 min!
