About the property

semi-private with kitchenette, central to city, transportation, and parks.

Willkommen! Bienvenidos! Welcome. I speak english, hablo espanol, ich kann deutsch. You have your own floor (the fourth floor) of a historic Harlem brownstone with queen bed with memory foam, private bath and private roof terrace with bbq and city view.Please note that we are NOT renting a separate apartment; the entry to the upper floor is through our living area on the floor below. I have just added a kitchenette: you have your own small refrigerator, toaster oven, and electric kettle. Central, quiet, happening neighborhood. I am a psychologist and raised my teenage son here in Harlem. The room is light-filled and airy with two desks, armchair, everything you need for your new york city adventure. We have two cats but they can be kept out of your area, so this is only a problem if you have a severe allergy.

My downstairs neighbor, Carolyn, runs the business Welcome to Harlem, and we can give you discounts on jazz brunches, historic walking tours (of African-American and Jewish history of Harlem),, and more.

About The Owner

I have lived in Harlem for 17 years, and raised my son (now 15) here. While the neighborhood has been very gentrified recently (there are dozens of upscale restaurants, bars, cafes within minutes walk), it still has a historical Harlem feeling and is a great place to live. While I have worked for 20 years as a psychologist, I have always had a great interest in history, especially the history of different immigrant populations and their interaction with each other. I am also now a licensed tour guide and give tours of Jewish Harlem (100 years ago Harlem was the third largest Jewish community in the world!!!). If this is something that interests you, let me know and I will make sure you can join a group tour or I can give you a private one, at 50% discount.

The Owner purchased this house in 1997

What makes this house unique

We are within a ten minute walk of several great parks (central park, morningside park, and marcus garvey park. Very convenient to subways which will bring you downtown, to times square, in less than half an hour. Harlem is more historically preserved than much of Manhattan, and has less population density, so has a distinctively relaxed but lively feeling. The bedroom is back-facing so incredibly quiet for the city.

Such a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Hannah and her room were wonderful! The roof deck was the highlight of the room -- a private space with a fantastic view - we drank coffee every morning and had a nightcap there every night! The neighborhood was fantastic; we could've spent our whole visit in Harlem. Amazing restaurants and coffee shops all a close walk away.

Hannah was wonderfully friendly, but definitely allowed us to feel like the space was completely ours! Would stay again, in a heartbeat!

Beautiful room

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I traveled from Phoenix to feel the magic of NYC during the holidays. We loved staying in the fourth floor suite. The wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling bookcases gave the room cozy character. With windows on opposite sides of the room, the space was bright and scenic. The building itself was beautiful and wonderfully located. We visited four nearby restaurants - all delicious. The walk to Central Park is short and direct, as is access to the 125 St. Subway. The best part of all? The cats!! One of whom is exceptionally soft, sweet and affectionate. No better way to keep warm on a snowy night than with a lap cat. Thank you, Hannah!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

I’m very happy to have found this place! Hannah is a wonderful host, and you get complete privacy!

Here are some tips for future guests (over the years I’ve learned to share tips as it is something I would have liked to see in reviews):

1. You don’t need to bring hairdryer or towels

2. You need to go up to the 3rd floor and the room is one floor up from that. Not wheelchair accessible. There is no elevator.

3. Whole Foods, CVS pharmacy, Starbucks are 4 minutes away (you can walk)

4. It’s a safe area even at night. Subway is 4 minutes away (but you need to stay updated on the ever changing schedule). Uber, Lyft is a safe and good choice.

5. The bed is very hard, which I loved!!!

6. There are two gorgeous cats, and they might or might not sleep with you at night. So we aware of you have allergies; I actually was absolutely fine!

7. The view from your private patio roof is amazing!

8. No carpets in the room, which was a great plus for us!

9. There is a single cup Keurig coffee maker, electric water kettle, mini fridge and cups/plates/silverware in your room. I recommend buying filtered water.

10. Room is spacious and has an extensive library!

I hope to come back again! Highly recommend this place and hope my tips will help in making your choice! Thank you so much Hannah!

Fantastic host in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Hannah was warm and welcoming and also available if needed. The views from the roof terrace are amazing, particularly good at sunset with the bottle of wine provided by the host on our arrival (lovely touch).

The subway is only a few streets away with the rest of Manhattan and beyond to explore!

Would definitely stay again should we ever return to NYC.
