My husband and I visited New York city for the first time this weekend and we stayed at the Heart of Harlem, where we enjoyed beautiful accommodations, comfortable beds, homemade breakfast and the most loving, genuine customer service I've ever experienced! If you're interested in trying something other than mainstream accommodations and are looking for that home away from home... More

I'm so happy that I chose to stay at this very quaint and charming B&B. The owners were the nicest hosts and very informative. I stayed in the Princess room. The Heart of Harlem B&B is centrally located in Harlem. I had great access to the bus lines and subway stations. I was walking distance from the famed 125th&Lenox Ave.... More

In fact, this is the kind of totally positive hotel review it kind of breaks my heart to write, because of worrying that I'll send so many guests their way we'll never get to stay here again. Yes, it's that good. We had the Serenity Room downstairs, and it was, hands-down, the nicest hotel room we've ever stayed in --... More

Every morning, the house owner Tressi prepares us warm breakfast with eggs, bacon, bread, fruits, milk and coffee. When she knows that Chinese eats noodle for... More

Tressi is an ideal host. She's warm, friendly, and approachable, but never makes you feel obligated to interact with her when you need to do your own thing. When I arrived, she showed me around to ensure I'd find anything I needed. As for the place itself, it's a great old Brownstone, filled with charm and history. The furnishings are... More

My friend and I booked a week at the Heart between May 11th - 18th. Tressie is a wonderful hostess who is extremely proud of her beautiful home which is situated within easy walking distance of a subway station and local shops. Each room at the Heart is an individual work of art and has been lovingly restored. Breakfast is... More
