We really enjoyed our stay at EasyLiving Harlem! We were warmly welcomed by Monika (Friend of the owners), she was really kind to us, looked up some great vegetarian restaurants for us, and helped us with all our questions. What we read in the other reviews is not exaggerated: from the moment you walk in the beautiful house, you feel like a welcome houseguest!
We booked the small room with a shared bathroom. The room is basically OK, although a bit on the small side. Shared bathroom is new and clean. After three nights we were offered to move for the next 5 nights of our stay to one of the biggest rooms (without surcharge, like a free upgrade), with a private bathroom! This room was absolutely gorgeous, very spacious, with a nice bathroom. For the price we paid this was really exceptionally.
The house has a big kitchen, and a small garden, fantastic for having breakfast outside in the spring and summer!
The only disadvantage for us was that you easily spend a lot of time on the subway, as it easily takes you half an hour to the "tourist attractions" downtown, sometimes less sometimes longer, dependent on where you are heading. But then again: the house is located in a more quite neighbourhood, and we were usually happy to get away from the noise downtown (the constant buzz). So overall: highly recommended!
