We were going to New York with our 19yr old and 12yr old and didn't want to stay in an impersonal hotel and in searching the web found Mount Morris House. From our earliest enquiry we found Vasili, the owner, did everything he could to assist us and this continued throughout our stay. We stayed in the loft, an amazing room that covered the top floor of the house. It was spotless, the beds so comfortable we all slept soundly from day 1 and we had every facility we needed. Great attention to detail has been paid to the restoration of the property and what an oasis of calm. We met some great people around the shared breakfast table and did not go hungry with such abundant food on the table. We weren't in a rush to have lunch.
Although there is some travelling involved to get to Central Manhattan and the major attractions the subway is very close and there is a frequent bus service right outside the door. It is also brilliant to get away from the frenzy of Downtown into the peace and quiet of Harlem historic district which is a friendly neighbourhood. On our first day we walked from Mount Morris to Time Square through Central Park an indication of the distances and a great way to see Central Park.
Vasili recommended some good cafe's and restaurants and one is worth particular note, Settepani, an amazing Italian restaurant with the best food and service we experienced in New York and none of it was bad, this was just outstanding.
If we return to New York we would not consider staying anywhere else thanks to Vasili for his amasing guest house, his hospitality, advice, assistance and kindness.
