I've been meaning to write this review since I got home - can't believe it's been almost a year! Sorry Kurt! We were a group of 5 women from Texas ranging in age from 22 to 74 - I want to tell anyone reading reviews on Jumel Terrace please do not be scared off by the Harlem location. We walked... More

I was traveling on my own, visiting some businesses in Harlem, and found this place to be conveniently located and a good value. My room was on the 2nd floor, and had just recently been opened as a guest room and was very pretty. The bathroom was nice, with a warming floor, which was cool, but no shower - only... More

Jumel, Owner. at Jumel Terrace Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

A host is only as good as his guest and I've been blessed with good guests. Just to say, that big claw-foot tub has a stopper under the drain, closed by a toggle under the faucet. It's a rather antique arrangement in which one takes a bath, using the shower attachment to wash one's hair and rinse. Meant to be... More

The apartment is quiet,... More

An exquisite, spacious and peaceful apartment located in a vibrant and historic area. The Thometz family is delightful, and we were made to feel incredibly welcome. The apartment is a stone's throw away from the subway - an easy and safe 15 minute trip from downtown Manhattan. It was wonderful to be able to retreat back there in the evenings.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Your pied a terre on Sugar Hill. Perched on the highest elevation in Manhattan, the neighborhood feels like a slice of Colonial Williamsburg airlifted into the city. The townhouse looks at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, George Washington's headquarters for 1776's Battle of Harlem Heights and home to the infamous grand horizontal, Madame Jumel.At the time Duke Ellington dubbed the "The Crown of Sugar Hill," the immediate neighborhood was also home to W.E.B. DuBois, Paul Robeson, Count Basie, Lena Horne, Coleman Hawkins, Teddy Wilson, Johnny Hodges and dozens of Jazz Masters. The secluded self-contained, well appointed garden apartment shares the garden floor and private entrance of Jumel Terrace Books, an antiquarian bookshop specializing in Harlem Heights' history - from its roots in Revolution through the jazz-age Renaissance to its very Now now. It still swings. Rooms are furnished in a comfortable, eclectic mix with bookish comforts. The apartment functions for a single, double or triple, complete with a private entrance and garden. In apartment: a firm antique double bed and a single/day bed, full bath, and kitchen, coffee/tea facilities, welcome food supplies (cereal, fresh gourmet coffee, teas, milk/half and half, fresh fruit), air conditioning, desk amenities, cable television, internet access & a Bose MP3 player. We pride ourselves on the quality of our mattresses. All bedding has high thread counts, is hypo-allergenic and protected. For your reading pleasure there are excellent collections on New York City, Harlem & horiticulture. ... more   less
