About this listing
We are a young artist couple in our twenties. There are three rooms for guests. Amazing public transportation (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, A, C, E, B, D subway, M60 bus), clean, friendly atmosphere, fun, safe neighborhood. : )
Thanks so much for your interest! Before you read on, please know that this listing is not a good match for you if:
You need an address to receive mail or packages. Airbnb does NOT allow us to accept mail on behalf of guests-- but UPS, USPS, and FedEx have short-term mailbox options, and they're all nearby. If you're ordering from Amazon, there are also several 24/7 Amazon Locker locations nearby.
You have more bags than you can carry up and down three flights of stairs.
Need a very quiet place to stay. NYC is not the city for you if you need utter silence to fall asleep.
This listing is for the Scarlet Room. We have three bedrooms available in one apartment. We live in the apartment; there are a total of four bedrooms and one bathroom along with kitchen and living room for guest use.
The Scarlet Room features a twin sized bed, small desk and chair, dressers, drawers under the bed, full-length mirror, and an over-the-door clothes rack.
The Scarlet Room is strictly for one guest.

Big, sunny four-bedroom in Harlem, New York. Recently renovated, clean kitchen, living room, one bathroom. Fully furnished private room. Lots of cool decor and furniture in the apartment! We love to add or change things bit by bit and the apartment looks different (better and better) every week. Most of our windows are south-facing, so we have great sunlight all day.
We work hard to keep the home clean, and provide fresh sheets and towels for each guest. You will receive keys for your bedroom, the apartment, and for the building. :)
Our place is ideal for travelers looking for an authentic New York City experience-- a relaxed, artistic home with a few friendly faces waiting for new guests!
See you soon!

Interaction with Guests
Interaction is up to the guest-- we respect your privacy, but if you'd like to chat, we'd love to get to know you.
The area is very safe. We have lived here for more than 3 years and have had zero bad experiences coming home or walking around at all hours of night and day. We have had over two hundred Airbnb guests and as you can see from our reviews, not one person had an unsafe experience here.
Central Harlem has great nightlife, museums, and other hangouts. Popular places to visit include Maysle's Independent Cinema, the Lenox Jazz Lounge, the Studio Museum of Harlem, the world-famous soul food eateries Red Rooster and Sylvia's, the Apollo theater, and much more-- all within 5 minute walking distance from the apartment. Marcus Garvey Park and the New York Public Library are both just one block away. Central Park is a 10 minute walk. 24 hour gyms and laundromats within 5 minutes. Lots of restaurants and cafes, grocery stores, delis, and weekend Farmers and Craft Markets in the neighborhood.
Extremely convenient public transportation to all of NYC-- 15 minutes from Times Square by subway. Subway is about a 1 minute walk from our door.
We are one block from the 2 and 3 subway lines, two blocks from the A, B, C, and D subway lines, and four blocks from the 4, 5, 6 subway lines. This means anywhere in the 5-borough area is extremely accessible, with Times Square 15 minutes away. The M60 (Laguardia Airport), M100, M101, BX15 buses all stop one block from the apartment, and we are 3 blocks from the MetroNorth train station (to suburbs in New York state and Connecticut). Public transportation available to Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK airports.
Other Things to Note
Please note that we are on the fourth floor, and do not have an elevator.
Check in is flexible-- you can come any time after 12 noon. Please check out by 11 am.
Please, do not bring any other guests into the home without speaking to us first. If you have a friend who would like to join you, certainly let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Please keep the communal areas (living room, kitchen, bathroom) clean of your belongings. If you put your food in the kitchen, please put your name on it so we know not to eat it :) . If you use dishes, wash them.
You can smoke on the FIRE ESCAPE, which you can access through the kitchen window. It's very safe and a nice view of the neighborhood!
We would love it if you would leave your shoes at the door.
La pase genial en lo de Rudy, el departamento esta muy bien ubicado y en una zona segura y llena de medios de transporte. Espero volver y poder volver a hospedarme con ellos!
Thank you for the comfortable and easy accommodation. Literally felt very at home at your place. Close to transportation and everything that New York has to offer.
Nice room and very easy going owners! The apartment was always clean, even the bathroom and they have an excellent coffee. They help me a lot to know how to get to different places. The area is safe, although some times doesn't seen so, and has excellent connections by subway or bus.
Rudy and Laura were very nice and helpful. Apartment is really good located, just near to sub station lines 2,3. Getting to city center takes 10-15 min, and for NY it's really close. The area near the house is safety, there are cafes and shops if you need. The room was nice and clean. There were enough towels, adopter (for electronic), good coffee and tea. The apartment is modern, with nice design. I really like my time at this place. And other guests were also very nice.
Excellent experience, Rudy and Laura were very welcoming and they made me feel like home. The room was clean and the apt is located close to the subway (this is very important in NYC). I would definetely stay again!
Great experience! The room is perfect. Warm, comfortable and well-decorated. The bathroom is perfect as well, I was pretty enjoy the moment taking shower. Hosts are wonderful, super friendly. I love those guys. I hope visit them again in the future. BTW, for auditioner in NYC it is a good choice, not far from Juilliard and MSM.
