About Tom Sanford

I (Tom) live upstairs at 105 Hamilton Place with my wife Alex and our two little kids, Cecily and Simon. I am a painter and work from home which means if my renters need anything they need only ring my doorbell and I am happy to help.

Tom Sanford purchased this studio in 2010

Why Tom Sanford chose Manhattan

My wife and I have lived in Harlem since 2002, and my history with the neighborhood began in the mid 1990s when I attended Columbia. We have loved the convenience and character of the neighborhood for years and feel very lucky that we were able to acquire our little townhouse which gave us the room to start our family in Hamilton Heights, Harlem.

What makes this studio unique

The cuban coffee at El Rey del Sandwich is superb. Perhaps you will have one after an early morning swim or a few sets of tennis at Riverbank State Park before you take a short stroll through City College's beautiful campus, past Alexander Hamilton's historical home and then the Royal Tenenbaum's house to the Convent Avenue Baptist Church. But there are so many ways to spend a morning in Harlem. And of course if you can just hop on the subway and the world's greatest city is your oyster!

Well located, well furnished, cheap but without window

  • 3 of 5

We spent 2 nights in the studio on May. Tom is a very welcoming host and gave us helpful advices. The studio is located nearby 2 subway stations that go directly downtown and also easily to JFK airport in 1h30. Nice restaurants nearby.

Regarding the studio, it is well furnished and spacious BUT in the basement without window. The absence of window explains the cheap price and should be clearly specified on the offer. If you do not plan to be in the studio on daytime and want a cheap accomodation in NY, it is a good choice.

unpleasant stay

  • 1 of 5

We were arranged to live in a basement. There is no window in the room. However, there is a hidden door in a closet. The hidden door leads to a garage, but it can not be fully closed.

We stayed there for three nights; however, one night, when we were sleeping, the overhead alarm started to make loud noises. It was about at three or four o'çlock in the morning. It took us two times to turn it off.

I do not think the room is appropriate for anyone to stay for safety concerns.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Tom is a terrific host- the apartment is clean and well equipped. Only a few blocks to the subway on a quiet street- coffee shops, and restaurants just down the block. Would definitely stay again.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The studio is perfect for a couple or even a family with a small child! Tom was a great host and everything you could need was a small walking distance away!

Fabulous cosy space!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a pleasant stay here!

The property is super modern, a big open space and you feel completely at home.

As a plus, the bed is super comfortable!! You are guaranteed to have a great night's sleep before another big day ahead.

Only slight downfall was how much you can hear from upstairs - it didn't disturb us much, but most mornings we would wake up to someone walking around, cleaning/moving furniture etc. This wouldn't start until 7.30/8am so it wasn't a big deal!

Tom is a wonderful host and was really helpful by answering any questions about our stay and the city.

We would definitely recommend staying in this property, and we hope to return again soon!
