“The perfect base for a vacat ion in N.Y.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Stayed here for 7 days while taking in the sights of New York. The room was perfect, clean, large with a kitchen and lounge area. It's near 3 subway stops so getting downtown is easy. And the people we meet here and in Harlem were so so soooo friendly! We've had a great time and would definitely come back and stay again

Me and my two friends spent a week here and really enjoyed our stay. When we told people we were staying in Harlem they were a bit worried but we felt extremely safe. Also, we got to explore an area we would not normally. The hotel is so lovely, it is in an art gallery, which is nice to look around. The rooms are also very boutique, which added an individual touch. The amenities were really good, including kettle, coffee maker, toaster and microwave. It is a good location, walking distance to subway, which will only take about 20 mins to get to times square. I recommend anyone to stay here.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at La Maison. It was sparkling clean and very comfortable. The room was peaceful and quiet and the bed was amazingly soft and exactly the way I like it. The receptionist was so friendly I really felt at home here. They helped with all my needs and gave me so much information about the surrounding area I didn't feel lost or worried about exploring the area. I will be back.

We had the pleasure of staying at La Maison d’ Art in November 2013 (4th – 13th). We stayed in the Victorian room and it was perfect for our needs. We are a couple in our late twenties and wanted a base so that we could explore NYC at our own pace. By choosing to stay in Harlem we were able to extend our stay to 9 nights as it was much cheaper. The Subway was a 10 minute walk away and we found Harlem to be a lovely area to stay in even when walking back to our B&B late in the evening. I didn’t feel any less safe than what I would do walking around London at a similar time of day. I highly recommend purchasing an unlimited metro card as it is extremely good value – we made so many trips on the subway that we would’ve spent far more if we had paid for trips separately.

La Maison d’ Art is a true gem. Our room was small but it was all we needed and I loved the bathroom - if I could’ve packed it in my suitcase to take home with me I would have! I loved the décor of the room so feminine and quirky and the bed was extremely comfy. The room had a fridge, cups/plates/utensils etc and hot drink making facilities so it was nice to be able to keep some milk and bits and bobs in the fridge. There is limited storage space for clothes in the room but myself and my Husband didn’t mind living out of a suitcase and there is a small amount of hanging space which we used to hang up coats/shirts etc. There was a small TV in the room which was nice to stick on whilst getting ready in the mornings.
The rooms are cleaned upon request which suited us perfectly. We didn’t make use of the shared facilities as we were out and about most of the time but we did use the phone to make a couple of free calls to the UK which was a great perk. Even though our room was situated above the art gallery we didn’t experience any noise and had a pleasant night’s sleep every night.

What I liked about La Maison d’ Art was that you felt like you were staying in ‘real’ New York rather than a chain hotel. So many friends of mine have visited New York but have all stayed in the main chain hotels which although nice don’t have much character. La Maison d’ Art felt like a home from home.

The staff at La Maison d’ Art are brilliant. We had an in-depth overview of NYC upon arrival and whenever we had a query or needed anything (e.g. we needed to print out some tickets so they let us use their printer free of charge) they would do everything and more to help. They even called a cab for us when we left and made sure that the correct rate was agreed with our driver. We felt like we were leaving friends rather than a hotel and were seen off with a hug each.

La Maison d’ Art helped to make our holiday a completely unique and memorable experience so much so that a month after our return from our holiday we found out we took home the ultimate souvenir – we’re expecting our first baby. So all I can say is La Maison d’ Art will certainly hold a special place in our hearts and we hope to return one day with our little one! :)

I booked this hotel for my family to New York in January for 2 nights based on the previous reviews and we were not disappointed.

We arrived New York in the snow storm with my elderly mother and two teenage children, we were warmly welcome by Luke and Sophie. We booked the family room on the top floor and there has no elevator, so Luke helped us to carried all luggages to our suite. He showed us the map and told us everything we needed to know. The two-bedroom suite is well appointed and full of characters, it is an old building, have huge windows, high ceiling and very spacious. During the snow storm, the wifi together with the phone service and TV were disconnected, when we called Sophie, she came over and explained the situation to us, although she couldn't fix it the problem on the spot but her prompt apprerance was appreciated. She helped us to book a car to the airport and helped us with our luggages and made sure we were well taking care of. It was quite refreshing to find someone like Sophie and Luke in New York as most of the service providers seemed very grumpy and miserable.

The nearest subway stations are about 10 minutes away, it wasn't easy to walk in snow so we took taxi most of the time since it wasn't that expensive for all of us. A supermarket just two minutes away and we cooked breakfast and dinner in the hotel as it is very expensive to eat out. We didn't have time to explore Harlem due to our short stay. We will definately stay in La Maison d'Art again we come to New York next time.
