“Heart Of Harlem stole my heart.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

NYC has so many places to stay, the choices can be overwhelming. When my partner and I go to NY, we look forward to staying at this wonderful B&B as much as seeing this great city. The Heart Of Harlem is a pre-turn of the century brownstone that was built with all the workmanship and grander of the Edwardian era. Think of hand carved hard wood stairwells and fireplace surrounds, and walls decorated with plaster reliefs throughout. The building is truly a beautiful old Lady, and with any old lady, there are some wrinkles that in my opinion add to the beauty of her age. If you expect everything to work flawlessly, like the 14 foot tall pocket doors, then this may not be your place but I believe that this just adds to her beautiful character. So if you want to feel that you are staying in a truly old and beautiful brownstone, this is the one! The location is great, it is near the subway and on a quiet street without the noise of downtown. The beds are wonderful and the rooms are decorated with turn of the century antiques that add to the beauty of the home. It is a very welcoming place to stay.
The first time we arrived in NYC, we didn’t know anyone. By the time we left, we had 2 wonderful friends, the caretakers and owners of this wonderful home. ressi and Dwight know the city and will recommend different places for you to see and things to do. They will help you navigate how the subway works and the bus system. They are truly wonderful people and it is always a pleasure staying with them.
We have stayed here twice already and have another planed stay in November with several of our friends.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, some have a full bathroom and some share a shower. This has never been a pr...

If you want beautiful boutique rooms furnished with early 20th century antiques, glistening chandeliers, an ensuite pool table and the worlds nicest host this is the place for you!
This 19th century Harlem town house has been painstakingly refurbished to its former glory by its friendly owners, it is simply wonderful.

Our room was clean and very comfortable. Modern antique cameras adorned the mantle piece and a glistening chandelier hung overhead. The beds were comfortable and the ensuite bathroom was clean and the shower hot and powerful. There is also free Wi-Fi, satellite TV and a subway a short 4 blocks away.
We were very well looked after during our short stay here, there is plenty of info about the local area and the owner (who is possibly one of the world’s nicest people) even gave us her mobile number telling us to call her if we needed some help, got lost etc.

Overall we were amazed at the quality of this B&B for the small price per night!

Thoroughly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the pool table!
