Lizette, the owner, is an amazing host. Our plane was delayed an hour and she was so nice and accomodating when I called to tell her. Upon our arrival, she provided us with subway and city maps, restaurant guide, and information about the neighbourhood. The room was really cute, very clean, and had everything we needed. Important to note, however; the bed is described as a queen-size. This may be a US sizing as it's not the same size as a Canadian queen. Saying that, it was very comfortable and we had a great sleep.
The location was great! It's a $27USD cab ride from LaGuardia Airport. I loved the neighbourhood and the people were so friendly. It's 50m from the corner of 118St and Malcolm X Blvd (Lenox Ave). It's a two block walk to the subway so literally two minutes to walk. The Central Park North entrance is only 8 blocks away on 110 St. It was about a 15 minute train ride to Times Square/Port Authority.
There's a great restaurant on the corner called Native. They have really good food at a good price and a cozy atmosphere.
We walked this neighbourhood in the morning, afternoon, and evening. I never felt any more unsafe than if I was walking my own neighbourhood at home. Unless you find a really great deal, this is the place to stay, for sure! I know I'll be contacting Lizette for my next trip.
