If you are looking for a nice trip to New York there are thousands of brochures which will offer you a very similar experience and it will come at a price. To me all the hotels look very similar and if I dare say it, they look a little bland. But if you want a holiday with a difference you...

We've just left Heidi & Tom, Jodie & Eileen and it feels like we have just left old friends! Great location, value for money, calm, warm atmosphere, beautifully renovated house, absolutely amazing! We stayed for two weeks for the NY marathon and Heidi even broke out a celebratory Prosecco for us on our return from the race! We'll never forget...

We are a couple from the Netherlands and wanted to visit NY somewhat different then booking the standard hotel in lower Manhattan. So we decided to step outside of our "comfort zone" and book an B&B. Due to the reviews on Tripadvisor we opted for Easyliving-Harlem. I must say, I have only one regret... and that is the fact that...

Heidi & Tom are very friendly, welcoming people. They help you with map and great recommandations for restaurants and places to go in Harlem. Safe and quiet neighbourhood Heidi speaks perfectly french and german ! We stayed in the bedroom with private bathroom and bow window, very clean and lot of space, with a king sized bed and air conditioning....

you MUST go there. The house is 100 years old, you can imagine how lovely it is, the rooms are large, cosy and nicely decorated. The aera is nice. It's quiet, away from the downtown noise and yet not so far away (the subway, which you reach after 5 minutes walking, takes you the center in 20 minutes). You can...

When I first decided to visit New York I looked at BnBs and contacted Heidi but my dates were unconfirmed and at that time the tentative dates I had there was no room available. I was disappointed as this was my first choice. However when my dates changed, I checked again with Heidi and was successful in securing a great...

I can really only reiterate everything that has already been said in past reviews, but it is all true and none of it is exaggerated. I've always found the hotel / B&B situation in NYC a minor disaster, but now feel like I've finally found the perfect place. We stayed with Heidi and Tom for five days in April. They...

For my second visit to New York there was no better choice than to revisit New York AND Easyliving Harlem (Heidi and Tom). Heidi and Tom are very helpful and you feel like at home at their place. The rooms are large and clean. Everything is perfectly maintained. I am looking forward to my next stay at a great city...

This beautiful home was perfect for our visit to NYC! For a chance to enjoy a bustling neighborhood (although the B&B itself is in an exceptionally & beautifully renovated and refurbished brownstone on a quiet street), with great local restaurants & music nearby, i can't imagine anything better. Columbia University is not so far away (we walked), and the sophisticated,...

Staying in Harlem

Neighbourhood Profile
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
