“perfect romantic place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2004

have just spent 4 nights at 102 brownstone and loved it! stayed in luna, which is up 2 flights of stairs. luna has a spa bath and kitchen, the suite was very romantic, much nicer than hotels twice the price - we were even given complimentary candy by wonderful hostesses, which was a good bonus! easy 1 minute walk to subway 2 or 3 line on 116th st, ride for a few stops and change at times square to get to just about everywhere, or walk though central park to work up an appetite for breakfast. area is fairly busy but peaceful enough for sleeping late. we never felt at all unsafe, everyone was very friendly and helpful. 116th street has quite a few stores, including a dunkin donuts for those essential snacks. 102 brownstone really felt like home though much more beautiful, perfect for getting a real new york experience. would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone.

My knowledge of Harlem before this was limited to one stroll down 125th, so this was a new experience. The brownstone is nothing short of gorgeous, and Lizette is a fine host. I opted for the Merlot with shared bath and it was comfortable and well appointed. I especially appreciated the complimentary highspeed internet. Native, the restaurant across the street, is quite good and has a welcoming atmosphere. The subway, an excellent bakery, and a grocery, laundrymat, and drug store are all within 2 blocks walk. I don't think I would wander the neighborhood at 2am alone, but I felt comfortable under normal tourist circumstances. Buildings in this neighborhood are being gut renovated.... It's going to be nice. Go ahead and be a pioneer and enjoy the value, and tell Lizette I said hi.

What a treat! All the rooms are different and some even have a spa bath!! With a fully equipped kitchen and even a bottle of wine when we got there, it really is a home from home. It is a great choice if you are looking for something special and different and great if there are 4 of you travelling as you can get interconnecting rooms. Short walk to the subway and you are in Times Sq before you know it. Or walk a couple of blocks down and you can stroll through Central Park from the top to the bottom.

The rooms are gorgeous, the price is right, and it's a great place to stay for those of us who don't want to be in the middle of traffic, fumes, and sirens! A short cab ride/subway ride to the tourist spots and all the comforts of home. Actually, MORE comforts than home - Tell Liz hi!! She's great! I give 3 thumbs up and a few more stars than 5!!!Yay!
