Ok if you're expecting the Plaza - it's not. If you want comfort, cleanliness, location and the best price for NYC - THIS IS IT!!!
Going onto forums before I arrived in NYC so many people said that there just weren't apartments in Harlem for rent and it must be dodgy? I knew I was safe because I booked through Trip Advisor - and I was! So please ignore any advice as this place is 100% legit and pictures are accurate.
That said....this place is large and roomy. The kitchen facilities are fantastic if you choose to eat in. There are two large screen TV's with a ton of channels. The living area is large and comfy. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment. Yes there is a little street noise but that's Harlem and not enough to effect your sleep. The bathroom was well fitted out and had a stack of fresh white towels.
The apartment is on the first floor and no lift. I was a bit nervous about this as we had large bags (international travel) - however it was a lot easier than I thought & no problem at all. London the owner also made an offer earlier if I needed she could get her son to assist.
The location of this apartment is sensational. Close to a Wholefoods, fast foods, restaurants & shopping. The subway is on the door step as is the bus. The stop for the 'hop on & off' buses was a short walk about 2 blocks. Don't miss Sylvia's across the road and Red Rooster. Aussies please note this is not part of the chain we have in Australia, it's a restaurant run by a celebrity chef - worth a visit.
A week of my trip i stayed in a midtown hotel. The price per night in that hotel was more than the cost of my 3 night stay in this 2 bed apartment.
Absolutely loved my stay in Harlem at this apartment.
London is a superb host. She went above and beyond to accomodate our needs. Her rental space is awesome. The Harlem nightlife blends in with the decor of the space. London has such a calm and loving spirit and the rental reflects that. This is beyond a five star rating. Ten at best.
Nice location, near by the bus stop and subway. And it was easy to get to from airport by the bus #60. Clean and great place.
We loved staying there.
