“Would happily stay again”
Reviewed 13 October 2009

By luck upgraded to the honeymoon suite so a large set of rooms. What others say about the house, breakfasts etc is accurate. The house is pleasant to the eye, clean and comfortable. Hosts are unassuming and leave you alone unless you ask for help, which they then provide and is exactly what you want.
The Harlem location made us a little uncomfortable but no one caused us problems. Bus stop is 30 feet from the front door. Subway is 10 minutes easy walk either way. Other guests pointed us to the 125th St subway, the 116th feels safer and you walk by some local eateries which provided us with good reasonably priced food.
Nice touches like umbrellas to borrow. Arranged a better taxi for us. Rooms have cool things like old working wooden shutters and sash windows.
I don't think too many people would leave compaining about their stay.

It was a joy for us to stay in this beautiful, comfortable and welcoming guesthouse. We are a family from UK (Cheshire) who wanted somewhere spacious, where we would be able to relax, to cook the occasional meal, to re-charge our batteries after a day of sight-seeing in the city. This was the perfect place! We stayed 9 nights in the loft apartment which we found to be spacious and comfortable with excellent kitchen, dining and lounge areas. As well as being clean and well serviced it was (like the entire house !) decorated with interesting paintings, fascinating artifacts and an excellent stock of books.

Breakfast each morning was taken downstairs with the other guests; hot and cold food, a variety of teas, plenty of coffee, fresh fruit and yogurt, and a great selection of music.

Our hosts, Vasili and Dimitri, took a real interest in our well being, on one occasion providing a lift downtown which became an improptu guided tour of the city! They were knowledgable, warm and friendly and we felt that they would provide us with any support we needed during our stay.

It was very easy to travel to downtown (or uptown) Manhatten from here as there was a bus stop literally on the doorstep, and the nearest subway was 10 minutes walk. However we also loved the local area - it was vibrant, lively and it felt like we were part of the local community. Local people were helpful and often would stop us just to ask if we were enjoying our stay. The local supermarket (10 minutes and next to the subway) was a great place to shop - full of life but also very well stocked - we found some excellent local beers from the Harlem brewing company.

we will be back.

My mother, sister, and I stayed at Mount Morris House, and we loved every minute of it. We were well taken care of and well fed every morning. Breakfast was wonderful and full of choices for every appetite and taste. It was so nice to meet other guests and hear of their New York adventures and home countries. I can't say enough about how nice the house and the furnishings were while we were there. Thank you Vasilis for everything. We will be back!

This was our first time in NY and Vasilis and Dimitris could not have made our stay more pleasant for us. They are fountains of knowledge and advice about NY. The house is easy to find and all major subways are in walking distance. The 5th Ave bus stops right in front of the house. The townhouse itself is adorable and very well restored with attention to historical details. Everything just showed that special touch: for example the heirloom crochet curtains on the windows of our suite (which was kept meticulously clean). Breakfast was served in abundance and to our total delight included organic and whole grain products and the Greek yogurt! Having access to a kitchen at night for making a bedtime tea was wonderful.
We can only recommend it!

I usually go to NYC twice of year and used to stay in different hotels close to Timeaquare or South Central Park. During my last stay I felt in love with Harlem and the old brown stones houses so I decided to stay close to this area during my next stay. And this is whgat I did week end Aug 15th when I found the Mount Morris House.
It is categegorized as a B&B but it is even more! This is a unique and charm full brown house on a quiet street across a park and 5min walk from subway (15min direct to Timesquare). It is as well 5 min walk from heart of Harlem (Apollo Theater). The house is so unique with lots of antique and history. All rooms well equiped. Kitchen, dining room and salon are so nice and you feel home and even better !
The parking in the street is free of charge Saturday through Monday included which is a real asset. This is definitively a place you should try !

Vasilis made us feel at home in his home. This is a delightful Victorian brownstone directly across from a park with on-street parking easily available. The decor features antiques with an Asian theme and are in exquisite taste. We had 4 dinners at restaurants suggested by Vasilis and were very happy. Betsy & John

I recently spent a week at this amazing B&B. My spacious "suite" was a treat to come home to each evening after exploring this wonderful city. Armed with a $25 weekly ticket for the bus and metro I could not go wrong. And the bus stop right at the front door. The highlight for me was the free wifi and I was able to leave my brand new laptop all set up in my room knowing it was safe. Being able to make a cup of tea at any hour was another plus.
