My friend and I booked a week at the Heart between May 11th - 18th. Tressie is a wonderful hostess who is extremely proud of her beautiful home which is situated within easy walking distance of a subway station and local shops. Each room at the Heart is an individual work of art and has been lovingly restored. Breakfast is... More

This gorgeous place has everything you could possibly want...close to subway and buses, wonderfully charming Harlem setting and Tressie is a perfect hostess...complete with amazing breakfasts. This lovely residence made our trip soooo much more enjoyable. Can't wait to go back and send my friends.

Located in the heart of Harlem, this B&B excells in all aspects of comfort, attention to detail, and loving hospitality. A turn of the 19th century brownstone, each room is decorated differently with ecclectic antiques, and memorabilia. The host is very attentive, and acts as your own personal concierge. Heart of Harlem is conveniently located with easy access public transportation.... More

The Heart of Harlem will please any traveller, but specially those of you looking for something different from the typical, touristy experience. Located in the lively Harlem, the B&B is nothing but a peaceful place where to rest. Very quiet during the nights and in the mornings! You're between main metro lines (10&15 mins away by walk) and also you... More

I bought a 2 night stay at the Heart of Harlem as a gift, mostly because of the excellent Trip Advisor reviews, it did not disappoint. My family came back singing the house as well as Tressi praises. Here some of what they said: The place was beautifully renovated, and spotlessly clean, Tressi was a wonderful host.

We liked this B&B in Harlem very much: beautiful rooms, very nice host, wonderful breakfast with freshest fruits, pancakes, bacon and eggs, tasty bread....You´re in the middle of Harlem, close to the subway! We highly recommand this charming B&B! Jörg & Rotraut with two children (16 and 18 years old)

An amazing B&B in Harlem. We have stayed there twice now when we come to New York and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. It's now our home from home. It's a beautiful brownstone building just up from the north edge of Central Park so you can walk into Manhattan. Tressie and Dwight are so lovely and will do everything... More
