We have just spent a very comfortable, relaxing 8 nights at this wonderful boutique hotel. It's described as a bed and breakfast but it no longer serves breakfast. Guests can use the well equipped kitchen which always seemed to be stocked with complimentary chocolates, brownies and cake. Departing guests seem to leave leftover alcohol for enjoyment by other guests.
We stayed in the Jade Suite on the second floor. It lived up to the accurate descriptions on the website. Mount Morris House is an elegant 1890's mansion which has been beautifully restored, maintained and furnished by the owners. The location is very good as it is in a nice part of Harlem. The M1 bus which travels downtown along 5th Avenue stops a few metres from the house. The subway station at 116th street is just a short walk away and the connections to other stations are good. There are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants and cafes nearby. The uptown location makes it very quiet at night and we always slept well. By New York standards, Mount Morris House is a bargain.
