    Quiet and reasonably clean, this house provides a good place to lodge in Harlem. The metro station is very close, the rooms are big. The decor is pleasant, but very much old fashioned and in need of some renovation. No private bathroom and no safe....More

    Lucky me to have found The Harlem Flophouse. It's truly a calm sanctuary in the middle of big bad Manhattan. Harlem is by far my favorite neighborhood these days, so there's that, but mainly the attraction of HFH are the civilized rooms and peaceful atmosphere....More

    As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
    played a vital role in the history of New York City.
    Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
    businesses and developments go up next to local
    institutions. 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
