On first imprssions as you arrive and walk up the steps to the large front door you think that you may have made a mistake ... then the door opens into a fantastic Visctorian house with a lounge bigger than our whole house, Vasilis gave us the dime tour and also a list of various places in the area for eating then took us up to our room. The first thing that you see is a bed big enough for 5 people!!
It would have been a marvellous place to stay if it was not in Harlem - which may have improved it's image from the 1907's 80's and 90's and have some great places to eat - but it did not feel safe enough to return to any later than 8pm. There were a couple of ladies staying on there own who would have liked to see New York at night but did not feel safe returning back late at night and neither did we. The bus stop outside the front door was really useful though and we did have a fantastic 5 days break in New York.
Our only surprise was that in all the reviews we read we saw that there was a fantastic banquet for breakfast ... all I will say is (because we really liked the place and Vasilis) go and stay at the B&B we stayed at in San Francisco if you really want a good breakfast!
10/10 for the room, 6/10 for breakfast and 5/10 for location. 8/10 for New York being a great palce to visit!
