We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered the home is exactly as portrayed on their website. Vasili greeted us warmly and gave a tour of the facilities, then showed us to our gorgeous accommodations. Our room was delightfully furnished with period furniture that was also very comfortable. The room was spacious with bay windows and a fireplace with the original glass tile mantel. The bath contained a deep soaking tub and large shower. All the amenities were provided. In the common kitchen, coffee, several teas, and delicious banana bread and brownies were available. It was easy to get to the subway system as the home is situated in between the 116th and 125th stops. We were able to walk to the Appolo Theater and the Cotton Club. Dimitri and Vasili provided lots of information on transportation, restaurants, and nightlife in the area. We ended our stay with a wonderful visit with Dimitri and Vasili and got to know more about them and the history of the home. We felt as if we had been long time friends. We will certainly stay in contact with them and return to visit, as well as tell others what a wonderful place this is to stay in New York City.
