Our stay at the Heart of Harlem was one of the best experiences me and my friends have had at a B&B. We got a real quirky room, not an en-suit, but we did have a bath in the room. The bathroom itself was out in the hall, which me and my friends actually preferred. I think it may be...

We arrived towards the end of March, getting to the house after 10pm. We were met by Tressie and Dwight who welcomed us and showed us to our room. The room was a real wow with high ceilings and original features and ensuite bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable with flat screen TV. You really feel at home here,...

We shared stories and testimonies for over a half hour....

This is simply the best accommodation serving breakfast in New York. We are a family of 3 (2 adults and 14 year old) who stayed at this B&B in Sep 2016. For starters, the location is great - near food shops and subway which you can use to visit downtown Manhattan. The B&B is in a beautiful old brown stone...

We had trouble with tickets for already booked event and Tressi was great and supportive; we managed to attend the event thanks to her help. Due to travel delays, we arrived much later than announced which was no trouble as well. Thanks Tressi for a great stay at your place!

Stayed in the heart of harlem for a week to celebrate my partner's 30th birthday and it couldn't have been better! Beautiful old brownstone building dating from the late 1800s with lots of original features and massive comfortable rooms. Big breakfast provided each morning and the host Tressi is a great fun fountain of local knowledge who will make you...
