About This Listing
5 mins walk + 17 mins subway ride to Time Square via the EXPRESS 2 and 3 train lines. Large Room. Think as large as an executive room in a New York hotel costing $300+/night. Harlem Restaurant and Night Life Central. For the young and young at heart.
With the 2 and 3 EXPRESS trains just steps away you're minutes from Midtown Manhattan.
The Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, and the Museum of Natural History are all a short train ride away.
Large bedroom of a spacious two bedroom apartment with bathroom and kitchen.
Access is available to the living room (with a home theatre), and kitchen. I'd love to be your host. It will be my pleasure to host you, as I love meeting wonderful people from within the US and the world.
The apartment is in the heart of a bustling, swanky Harlem neighborhood on the Upper West Side, steps from the #s 2 and 3 trains with which you can quickly access the major NYC attractions listed above. An added bonus is that the apartment is also steps from the best and hippest restaurants and night life in Harlem: Red Roaster, Corner Social, Sylvia's, Covo Lounge, and Les Ambassadess.
I have a gym in the apartment. Spin bike and Bowflex Home Gym.
Interaction with Guests
As much as they need me to. I find that some guests really want to come and enjoy their stay without much interference from the host. I respect that, but provide guidance or company based on the preference of the guest.
I love that I live in the restaurant and night life central of Harlem. The best restaurants, bars, and night life spots are steps away from my home.
Be respectful of the space and property and we'll be cool.
The room was very big and there was AC, which was very good for those warm NY days. The bed was very confortable and the room and the whole apartment were very clean. Location was very good. Near subway and good places to eat. Smyles was very helpful in every sense!
Very proper and clean appartement. Large bed. Very much storage room. Few minutes to underground. Large variety of jobs near by. Bathroom shared with host. Possibility to make breakfast. Smyles was waiting for us when we arrived. Gave detailed information when needed. He and his French speaking girlfriend where very friendly and communicative. We would always cam back. Thank you Smyles.
Smyles was a great host, shared bath was extremely clean, great bed, quiet for Harlem. All around a great bargain, I definitely will return.
Smyles was a wonderful and gracious host who made Bob and I feel very welcome!
The location was tops and the room and overall accommodations was exactly as described!!
This was our first time using Airbnb and we will definitely be using the service again.
All in all, we had a wonderful time visiting New York City and staying with Smyles!!
Beautiful and comfortable bedroom in a great location. The Apt is quite near by subway and Times Square only 15 mins ride way！Nice kitchen and cleaning bathroom！
Smyle's apartment was located in west harlem and very close to public transportation, which made it easy to get anywhere around Manhattan. The room included all the basics (pillows, 2 thin blankets, bed, mirror, desk and a couch, and he provided us with a soap bar). And the bathroom was shared with Smyle and his girlfriend, who also lived there. Both were very kind. Thanks for hosting us!
Smyles was very friendly & made us feel welcome, although we only spoke with him briefly on arrival, we didn't cross paths again as he left early in the morning & we were gone all day until very late. The room is as described & the bed was comfy. We had use of the kitchen to use the fridge & make tea in the morning which was great. There is a little variety store across the street to buy cream & liquor if you want. The neighbourhood was cool & we felt safe at all hours, as safe as you would feel in any big city late late at night. The subway was a nice short walk & there is a bus every 10 minutes that takes you directly to Laguardia Airport just up the street that cost $2.50!
