This is a very nice guest house in Harlem that is extremely convenient to the subway on a quiet little street without any traffic. The houses are hidden away from the rest of the main roads and it felt safe and was a great place to stay overnight. It's not in the heart of the city, so it is calmer...

I was due stay for a few days in October, but somehow a double booking occured. I didn't get the impression that such things happened often, but was impressed with how the situation was resolved. I had arrived late, so the owner put me up in his own apartment for the night at no charge. The next day, he booked...

I found the B+B easy to find from the local subway station, it is only 1 minute walk as per Michael's instructions. It's a 20mins subway ride from midtown. I was made to feel at home straight away by Michael and the other guests, beats staying at a faceless 4-star hotel in NYC! The local area has plenty of cafes...

Hotel is situated in a quite part of Harlem, near by Broadway and Amsterdam Ave. Metro stop is next door, as well as grocery store. We stayed for 5 nights in a double bedroom adjustable for triple orientated to a quiet back yard. Simple, but satisfactory breakfast is served by owner in a dining room. Very friendly and cosmopolitan atmosphere....

I was really surprised about how lovely and quiet this street was. We were a little unsure about staying in Harlem but it was a really great place. It is minutes from the subway and you would never think that such a historical and beautiful house and street was in New York. The rooms and bathroom were very clean and...

I stayed at Michael NY for 4 nights in November 2008 on a visit to New York. I'd stayed a 3 nights in a midrange hotel further downtown, near Central Park, before moving up to Michael's. Have to say Michael's was better value by far and I enjoyed my stayed very much. Everything was clean, a decent breakfast was provided,...

This place was really nice to stay at. The owner is very friendly and tries to make your stay as uncomplicated as possible. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, the kitchen is very nice and provides coffee machine etc. The surrounding area is very quiet at night and offers some really good restaurants and takeaway food. Only negativ point ist the...

It is my second time here and I returned not only because is affordable but also cause Michael is unbelievably helpful and accomodating, not to mention that whenever you write him he answers almost straight away. The rooms are simple, the bathrooms are shared and usually I dislike that but since the place is small (4 rooms) everybody does his...

“If you do not require much extra space, it is quite ok for a single traveler to choose a single room.”

“Rooms are quiet, you do have some planes flying over every now and then, but you'll be too burned out from visiting to even hear anything while you sleep in cloudy softness! Sometimes, the air conditioning from a neighboring room vibrates the window...but a little piece of cardboard fixed that pretty fast!”

“Single room is very tight. If possible choose double room. It is worth staying a little bit more during breakfast to chat with other guests and the owner.”
