I checked in to giselles and was assigned toa room. I laid in the bed and then found that there were bed bugs in the bed. I was then assigned to another room. The next day I had bites on my hands, arms, and feet. I you stay here be sure to check the bud for bugs.

Giselle's Guest House is extremely interesting. Everywhere I looked I saw interesting textures of an antique row house, it's furnishings, and art. The double bed we slept has a brass head frame right out of a Matisse painting. A copy of a Greek statue, discus thrower, was remarkable, and the lace curtain double window gave a beautiful quality of light....

Our experience was similar to these other stories on this site. And this shows how miss Gisele runs her business: Gisele is a chaotic totally stressed out woman. She overbooks and everyone who doesn't fit in the B&B, she sends to her other guesthouse on Lennox. By that time you are in New York, everything else is booked, and you...

We booked a room two weeks in advance in this bed and breakfast. We went there knowing that there were no breakfast but it did not matter as the place looked awesome from the pictures and was surprisingly cheap at 110$. With a 24h notice we were told that our reservation were not good as she overbooked that weekend so...

We had made reservation, but than (less than 48h before we came!) she called us to say she made a mistake and didn't have room for us. So we landed in one of her "auberge" instead, we had no choice, and that was terrible. The woman is very bizarre, unreliable and racist. We saw her take everyone as hostage because...

My spouse and I were unhappy by our "b'n'b". We do not recommend it at all. First, it was not a b'n'b, it was a shack, there was no breakfast, there was no welcome, no warmth. We only saw our host upon registry and after our stay (3 nights) to get our $10 key deposit back, and that was enough,...

I booked a last minute trip to New York, early December, which is a very busy period in NYC. So all my usual places were all booked (Harlem Flophouse, Chelsea Lodge, Comfort Inn in Long Island City). I decided to try this B&B. It was a big dessapointment. The owner wouldn't give me a reservation confirmation. The place wasn't clean....

Neighborhood Profile
Harlem
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 you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighborhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
