My friends and I were looking for an inexpensive and cozy place in the City to live in during our trip to NYC this Spring Break. Chanced upon The Harlem Flophouse when searching for a B&B and decided to book it. It costs us about $40 per night, per person, for my group of 3. For this rate, it has got to be one of the most affordable inn in city. The room was wonderful, filled with antiques and decorations seemingly from the early 40s 50s era. I was surprised some of the stuff even work at all, (the lamps, radio and stuff.) Overall, it gave a very vintage feel, one that I have never got to experience before, and I totally enjoyed my stay. The room was very welcoming and made a good shelter for our weary legs every night.
The innkeeper even assisted us in printing out our e-tickets and additional documents that we required along the way, for our trip in NYC.
Not to mention, the innkeeper's cat, Phoebe, was such a darling. Often coming up to our room (3rd floor), and looking for some company. We left our room doors slightly ajar at night to allow her access, and there she was almost every single morning we woke up, either sleeping on the comforter on the floor, or watching birds out at the window. As a cat lover and owner myself, Phoebe really made me feel more at home, and made the stay even more memorable.
Thanks Rene, for the wonderful hospitality you offered throughout my stay. Will definitely look to return for my next NYC trip again.
