About this listing

Welcome to Harlem! Large bright home-away-from-home. Family friendly 2bed/2bath apt set back from the hustle & bustle, centrally located, easy access to subways & attractions.

The space

****This is a walk up in a 4-story historic brownstone-Please read the entire listing.****

You are truly taken care of during the whole reservation, from our communications before you book, to a smooth check in process, to a truly comfortable and convenient stay!

This beautiful, bright, luxury 2 bedroom apartment occupies the entire top floor of a recently renovated brownstone townhouse in one of the most attractive blocks in Harlem (the building and location are so ideal that a prominent NY senator has his office on the ground floor).

The apartment has wonderful natural light with skylights in every room and both east and west facing views -- the sun rises in the kitchen and sets in the bedrooms. It is a very quiet apartment far above the street noise with solid walls and floors and no neighbors above or beside you.

The apartment is only a few blocks away from the 2 & 3 subway lines and a close walk to the 4,5, and 6 subway lines. The bus stops across the street! Very convenient location!

****Please note that our apartment is on the top floor of a four floor brownstone. This means a lot of light. But it also means 4 flights of stairs

Please note that prices vary depending on the season and number of guests. Calendar shows correct prices for 1 person

The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed and it's own private bathroom

The 2nd bedroom is furnished with comfy full-sized bed that sleeps 2 people.


Their is an Insta Raised Air Bed with Never Flat Pump that sleeps 1-2 people.

Also included are all necessary cookware, coffee maker, toaster, plates, glasses, utensils and a pantry with basic food supplies needed for breakfast or a gourmet night in.

An open living room and kitchen floor plan give the apartment a loft-like feel. The apartment is decorated in a contemporary minimalist style.

Guest access

High-speed wireless Internet is available throughout the apartment. Two flat-screen HDTVs are located in the living room and master bedroom with 100+ cable channels, DVR and Wii. Central heat and A/C in all rooms.

Full washer/dryer in the apartment so no need to trek to the laundromat!

The 2nd bathroom features a shower with a soaking tub.

Sheets, bath towels, kitchen towels and all other essentials (i.e toiletries, hair dryer and iron/ironing board) are also provided. The apartment is our home, so we leave everything for you to use including anything in our pantry.

Interaction with guests

We are a low key couple looking for mature and respectful guests in our home. The apartment is yours to enjoy privately. However, there is always someone on hand to answer your questions or even to come to the apartment if you have an urgent need.

Loved our stay! The apartment is beautiful, bright, modern, and spacious. The pictures shown were a great representation. We traveled with our children 14 & 16 and felt very safe walking to and from the apartment to the subway both day and night. The subway was only 2 1/2 blocks away so very convenient. There are three flights of stairs but after you get your suitcase up the first day they are really no problem. A few things I really appreciated: quiet neighborhood, comfortable furniture and beds, great lighting, updated bathrooms and apartment, great a/c, washer dryer, plenty of blankets towels and pillows, spacious, clean, responsive owners.

"Hello Harlem " was just what we wanted, easy access to subway and lots of cabs . The neighborhood was safe, we never felt uncomfortable. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. Would definitely book again.

It is a little bit away from downtown with subway stations 2 blocks away. Good apartment which has clean rooms and bathrooms. It is on the 4th floor with no elevator which gave us a good exercise every day. On the whole it was a nice stay and Obora was very helpful regarding all my questions.

Wonderful apartments in the interesting and quickly developing part of NYC. Perfect place for a family. Obora & Michael were super responsive, helpful and hospitable. Very close to the Central park; so, perfect jogging and/or walking are guaranteed! We will be glad to come back! )))
