What else is there to add to the reviews of this wonderful bed and breakfast, but to confirm all that has been said before. Bernado had been extremely helpful and flexible before we even came - keeping in touch and responding to our myriad queries about the apartment and travel. He contacted us three days before arrival with advice on reaching him and a number to contact. There is a sense of perfection about the service. The apartment was spacious and cosy, well attended and quiet. Exceptional value in New York. Edgecombe avenue is a quiet road lined with a some lovely buildings, and the area is peaceful and perfectly safe. Travelling into lower Manhattan is a breeze and the subway is quick, safe and runs all night. The advantage of being in this part of Harlem, other than its relative peace, is that you are in the middle of a fascinating neighbourhood, which you might not get to see if you were staying in the usual tourist spots. Above all though, there is Bernado and Maite. They are available every morning to give you excellent tips on what to do and where to eat, beyond the generic advice of guide books and features, and are absolutely responsive to any request. For instance, we wanted to wash some clothes and asked for a plastic bowl. Maite went out and bought one for us the same day. New York is an incredible, inexhaustable, city - and we felt we were leaving far too soon; staying in San Firmin made it seem familiar too, and the leaving was all the sadder for it.
