Michael was extremely helpful and friendly, accommodating of our delayed arrival time and called car service to take us to the airport upon our departure. Lovely secluded townhouse on a car-less street for a safe and quiet atmosphere. Great location just a minute's walk from a subway station taking us to downtown Manhattan within 20 minutes. Continental breakfast with home... More

MIchael's B & B is a charmer. I felt very much at home for my 4 nights' stay. I felt completely safe in the neighborhood, even returning very late at night. Michael's itself is quite secure. Sylvan Terrace is unique, a cobblestoned street. At one end is the Morris-Jumel Mansion. The subway is close and convenient. Michael's has one bedroom... More

This is perfect for the person that desires a clean, less expensive alternative to a hotel room in New York. The host, Michael, is very knowledgeable and helpful, the rooms are well kept and having access to a kitchen is helpful, too. Never saw other guests despite the fact that all rooms were rented, felt like we were his house... More

I had a 4nights/5 full days stay in late July. I had selected it based on Tripadvisor recommendations, location (zip code plus uptown), price(under $100/night for a single room) and proximity to a subway station and to shops for necessities. I was not disappointed on either count. The extras were the self-serve breakfast, the casual, but friendly and helpful atmosphere... More

Subway station, supermarket, laundry and drugstore right around the corner. Very quiet place. Half an hour from most touristic points by subway (24/7). Did not need taxi even after midnight. You can get there from JFK easily by subway. Owner very helpful and friendly. Simple place but very clean and quite, with everything you need. Other guest often very friendly.... More

For my winter trip to NYC, I booked 5 nights at this place although it is a little far from the city (located in Harlem. It is pretty valued for money (you pay through the nose for accommodations which are not hostels in NYC, even in the dead of winter, since it is a year-long tourist spot..) Location: The inn...

This is a very nice guest house in Harlem that is extremely convenient to the subway on a quiet little street without any traffic. The houses are hidden away from the rest of the main roads and it felt safe and was a great place to stay overnight. It's not in the heart of the city, so it is calmer... More
