We stayed based for a week at the Upper Yorkville suites as an alternative to a typical big name Manhattan hotel. (Couple, plus teenager). Our apartment was on the second floor, absolutely spotless, modern and while not super-chic it was well appointed ( free fast WiFi, large-screen TVs etc). The building contains three or four independent apartments each with own front door. The location is where real New Yorkers which made the trip far more interesting.
The innkeepers actually run a hardware store below so were always accessible, but after 1 day, we started to feel that this really was a comfortable home from home. All amenities were right on the doorstep as stated in the other reviews, so we wasted no time in stocking up for snacks, fresh fruit etc, even though soft drinks, breakfast cereals and milk are supplied every day by the housemaid.
On checking out leaving, the innkeepers kept our luggage safely all day and in the afternoon we could freshen up before the ordered taxi arrived.
The only slight minus point are the two aircon units, one at each end of the apartment. The are both really effective in keeping the apartment cool during the August heatwave, but were a bit louder than one might expect.
Overall we can really recommend this place if you want a clean, easy, safe and convenient B&B experience in NYC. The photos on their website are accurate and true. We will certainly be back, for sure. Drop into the East Harlem café for breakfast and check out Pee Dee steakhouse and Amor Cubano for dinners (nr 110th St)
