“Fantastic apartment in the "heart" of Harlem”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We rented a really cool one bedroom apartment on the second floor of an old brownstone townhouse in Harlem. The old building has beautiful carved dark wood trim throughout and old carved marble & iron fireplaces. We paid $145 a night. Fantastic price to stay in Manhattan! The apartment included a full kitchen, livingroom/diningroom, and separate bedroom, plus there was a futon couch in the livingroom that opened into a double bed. Free wifi, air conditioning, & flatscreen tv with cable. The apartment was well appointed with good quality linens, towels, and a fully stocked kitchen with plates, glasses, cutlery, utensils, pots, pans, coffee maker, toaster, etc., etc.. We had breakfast in the apartment every day before heading out. Like others who have reviewed this place, we were pleased to find some staples had been left for us - such as cooking oil, salt, pepper, spices, ketchup, peanut butter, tea, etc.

The only drawbacks we experienced about the apartment: the water pressure on the shower wasn't great, and the bathroom sink drained slowly. However, one day when we had a plumbing issue, Milton, the owner, came and fixed it while we were out.

Milton, who owns the apartment is just wonderful. He met us there within a few minutes of when we arrived, and we chatted with him at length about the neighbourhood.

I found the neighbourhood to be safe. Apparently we were in the "heart" of Harlem at 126th Street and Malcolm X Blvd. The neighbourhood was vibrant and active. There are some great restaurants right near the apartment, including a really good French restaurant called Chez Lucienne where we ate the first night we arrived, plus there is a good grocery store three blocks north, and a laundromat 2 blocks north. I never felt unsafe walking in the neighbourhood, even returning late at night and walking to the townhouse from the subway stop.

There was a subway stop one block away (5 minute walk), and a stop for another subway line about 5 blocks away (15-20 minute walk). We drove to New York and left our car at the parking garage across the street from the townhouse and took subways everywhere. Parking was quite reasonable.

I would definitely stay here again, and have already recommended this place to friends and family who want to visit NYC.

We stayed here for 2 weeks during October /November 2011 and it felt very homely.On arrival we had to hang about to find Milton, but some locals asked if we needed help and assured us he was nearby. Within 10 minutes he arrived, very friendly and welcoming.Anything you need to know, just ask him! The apartment was well furnished although an armchair to sit in would have been excellent.We had a sofa bed to sit on and it had a low back which i felt uncomfortable with after a while.The apartment is a minutes walk from the Subway and shops are open all hours. It felt safe to walk around even at night time although they say not to stray of the main streets.On our second night staying we even had Lady Gaga parked outside whilst filming her video on the roof of the Car-park opposite! She blew-up a car , but don't expect that every night!I would definitely recomend this apartment and hope to come back to NYC soon, better value for your dollars than a hotel!

Liked best: everything was near to hand
Liked least: stairs could be a pain to climb after a long day-out.Seating in the living room could be improved with a couple of armchairs .
