But quite disappointed at the end.. The house is extremely old, the furniture are ugly and the rooms are so so so small! It is impossible to spend any time in the rooms other than sleeping, there is basically no space other than the bed, not even for a desk with a decent size and a normal chair. Plus, consider...

We were having a hard time finding anything cheap in NY. There were 5 of us traveling to NY for 4 days and we were looking for something cheaper than renting a couple of rooms at a decent hotel when we bumped into Harlem 144. 5-minute walk from the metro station (Uptown 116 St., lines 2 or 3). Beautiful, quiet...

I can't review the property because the day before I was scheduled to leave the owner emailed me and told me that I was now staying at another property. While the lady that in charge of the new property was very sweet and helpful, the property itself was not equal in quality to the 144! It also did not provide...

This place is awesome. I don't give five star reviews but the place and valerie were outstanding. The rooms were so charming and really had a vintage feel. I felt excited to leave and come back. It really felt like a home that I didnt have to clean or decorate. It was extremely clean and the bathroom was goregous. We...

First at all this Harlem Guesthouse is very well located, near the metro that takes you to manhattan center in 5 minutes. The Guesthouse is really nice, a kind of old style wood decoration and the room I was, the cheaper one, was really clean, luminous and with AC and excellent WiFi. Harlem is a great neighborhood to stay, authentic,...

I'm a gay male from Indianapolis, Indiana and I visited NYC in June 2013. I decided to stay in Harlem at a beautiful brownstone guest house called 'Harlem 144 Guest House'. I was amazed by the quality of service, the beautiful art and cozy antique furniture. The place was clean, warm and fresh at the same time. The owner of...

The brownstone has that 1800's charm, but all the charm is negated by the laziness and rudeness of the owner, Valerie. My husband and I came with a group and stayed 5 days/ 4 nites.When we arrived, the bathroom & kitchen wastebasket was full and began to overflow until we emptied it. We were offered milk that was dated Jan....

Everything was dirty and so old in this B&B! Valery the owner is very not welcomy and not kind at all. She doesn't know how to smile with her guests. I very disliked this trip due to her behaviour. I do not recommend this hotel!!!!!!!!! And milk and yogourts for our so-called "breakfast" were out of date: dis-gus-ting!!
