“Awesome Xmas trip to NYC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We stayed in one of the top floor rooms in Heidi and Tom's amazing Harlem house just before Xmas in 2012. We have to say it was one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in and was perfect for our 5 day trip to the city. Heidi and Tom made us feel very welcome and the house is beautiful with lots if the original features restored. The house is in a lovely neighbourhood and it is extremely convenient to get into central Manhattan on the subway at any time of day and night. Thank you for a lovely stay - we will be back. R & B x

This was or second time staying with Tom and Heidi. We love the friendly atmosphere and the "more than comfortable" accomdations. We had a large king size bedroom with a private bath that was perfrct, neat and immaculately clean. We drove from CT and found parking on the street safe and easy. Tom and Heidi suggusted that we take the subway from a block away to 59th street and Columbus Square for shopping and then a short walk to Times Square. It was so easy and quick! They then suggested to have a walk over to Bryant Park for the Skating on 6 th Ave. and 42nd Street. Along the way, we saw lots of fun free events going on. We went to Grand Central station and were amazed at it's beauty and fabulous food court. Not only are they the most gracious hosts but they are full of knowledge about all the areas of Manhattan. The only complaint we had was that Jodi was away for the weekend and we did not get to see her again. This is the BEST Place to stay in NY. 125th Street and the Apolo Theatre are a short walk and the shopping there is great as well. We hope to visit them at least once a month. We Brought our well behaved 12 year old daughter and she just adored her time in NYC.

Room Tip: Heidi and Tom offer private baths with certain rooms and a shared bath with other rooms.The shared b...

I have been at Easyliving-harlem and I will always choose this town house for my future trip to NY. A very stylish house where you can enjoy your stay. The room is clean and beautiful. Heidi, Tom and Jodi are just wonderful.I love the way they welcome the guests. They are very nice people! Thank you!

We stayed for 5 days in Dec 2012 with Heidi, Tom & Jodi. The owners Heidi and Tom were super friendly and helpful, and they gave good tips for the local restaurants and other interesting places in NYC too. The booking correspondence with Heidi was very easy and quick - excellent!

We stayed in Kind Size bedroom with a private bathroom. The room was really king sized - very spacious, clean and comfortable. We also used the modern, fully furnished kitchen downstairs and had a nice breakfast: English muffins, jam, coffee and fruits there. The whole house was very spacious, cosy and spotless!

The location in Harlem was good, just a couple of blocks away from the subway which took us to the central Manhattan in roughly 20 mins. There were some groceries and great restaurants nearby. We also felt totally safe there, it was actually very peaceful neighborhood.

We had a lovely stay in NYC with Heidi and Tom!

Highly recommended!

The hosts, Heidi and Tom and their god daughter Jodi are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They will often make suggestions on where to go. Every morning Tom will teach us on how to get around to the different places we plan to go on that day which was very helpful for us as the subway system was a little complicated for us in the beginning.

We stayed in the room with the king size bed and attached bathroom. The room was very clean and spacious, much bigger than we expected!

The location was great too as it is near to 2 subway stations for different subway lines.

We stayed 5 days with Tom and Heidi and loved it.

t was peaceful compared to the middle of town and the room was infinitely better than what we could have got further in for the price yet it was very handy by tube.

Added bonus was being handy to one of only two city stops for the trains that go up the Hudson River for a real break from the city.

Tom and Heidi were great hosts and we hope to see them in NZ at our place some time.

Harlem itself was a good base - safe and interesting. NYC seems to be a city that keeps transforming and felt very safe and friendly to us.

Definately and wholeheartedly recommended.

As a native New Yorker who lives in CT now, it was wonderful to spend a weekend in NYC at a beautiful renovated brownstone built in the 1800's. The home is spectacular, comfortable, amazingly friendly and relaxing.You may meet very interesting people from all over the world and have incredible conversations and learn more than a few things! Or not, that's to you! The amount of privacy youbrequire is up to you. The neighborhood is beautiful with many sites to see and easy travel to any parts of NYC. The history that is abound just in Harlem is overwhelming! Don't miss Tom and Heid , they are the heart of this wonderful experience. We brought our 12 years old daughter who said " Lets always stay with Heidi and Tom!" P.S. there is no swimming pool! Lol

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing,
