The host here are excellent. I arrived late in the evening and was greeted by Thierry son who was so polite. Next came Tressie ..her smile is so bright and warm it could brighten the night enough to be day and make it seem like a summer day in winter. We shared stories and testimonies for over a half hour....

This is simply the best accommodation serving breakfast in New York. We are a family of 3 (2 adults and 14 year old) who stayed at this B&B in Sep 2016. For starters, the location is great - near food shops and subway which you can use to visit downtown Manhattan. The B&B is in a beautiful old brown stone...

We had trouble with tickets for already booked event and Tressi was great and supportive; we managed to attend the event thanks to her help. Due to travel delays, we arrived much later than announced which was no trouble as well. Thanks Tressi for a great stay at your place!

My husband and I visited New York city for the first time this weekend and we stayed at the Heart of Harlem, where we enjoyed beautiful accommodations, comfortable beds, homemade breakfast and the most loving, genuine customer service I've ever experienced! If you're interested in trying something other than mainstream accommodations and are looking for that home away from home...

I'm so happy that I chose to stay at this very quaint and charming B&B. The owners were the nicest hosts and very informative. I stayed in the Princess room. The Heart of Harlem B&B is centrally located in Harlem. I had great access to the bus lines and subway stations. I was walking distance from the famed 125th&Lenox Ave....

The heart of the neighborhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks.
