SUNNIEST MANHATTAN BED BREAKFAST

Apartment - Private room · Saint Nicholas Avenue, New York, NY 10027, United States

The Space

Come share my modest, cozy, converted 3 room, 1 bath apartment on the 5th floor of a pre-war walk-up building in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan.

THE SEMI-PRIVATE ROOM
--------------------------------------------
This small westward-facing room is full of natural sunlight, approximately 11 x 10, 110 sq ft (10 sq m, 10 qm) and has a new twin-size (single) bed with a another twin bed tucked underneath (which converts into 2 twin beds or a king bed once joined).
Was originally part of an 11 x 24, 264 sq ft large living room and is now separated by almost-ceiling-high armoires to create some privacy (see pics).
Does Not have a physical door and someone may use the adjoinging space on the opposite side of the armoires.
Is best for two guests, but if there's a larger group, send me a message and I will let you know if there is space in the apartment for more guests.
This room faces the street so there's some traffic noise in the mornings around 8am. If the sleep sound generator is used, the traffic noise is diminished.

There's 2 common/shared areas : a small kitchen and bathroom.

THE PRIVATE ROOM : See the listing for the master bedroom with a queen Serta Perfect Sleeper bed- http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/24778

HALF OF THE APARTMENT : See the listing for the front half of the apartment with 4 single beds - http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/26118. The front half of the apartment is a combination of the semi-private and open rooms.

A Schwinn moutain bike is also available at a rate of $20/day.

THE DISTANCE
-------------------------
4 minutes to A,B,C,D - 125th St subway station (Express Lines available)
5 minutes to the APOLLO THEATER, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, JAZZ MUSEUM, OFFICIAL NYC INFORMATION CENTER, RESTAURANT ROW, STUDIO MUSEUM OF HARLEM
7 minutes to 2,3 - 116th St subway station

THEATERS, ROCKEFELLER CENTER, YANKEE STADIUM, MUSEUM MILE, BRYANT PARK, MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY, METRO NORTH, PORT AUTHORITY, CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK by subway or bus

THE AMENITIES
--------------------------
Towels, linens, heating/cooling, kitchen access, Wi-Fi internet (laptop not provided) and lite printing are provided at no extra cost.

A healthy breakfast of fruits, cereal and tea/coffee is setup for self serve. Ingredients for a hot breakfast of oatmeal, grits and eggs are also available and maybe prepared at your convenience.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a variety of cooking tools (rice cooker, pressure cooker, magic bullet, etc) and is available for use for those who prefer to save by eating in. There's also a gourmet grocery store (3 blocks away) to purchase ingredients for lunch/dinner.

Fans are used frequently in summer months. When a fan doesn't cool the space, the air conditioner (A/C) can be used. But since this is a semi-private room (not completely closed off from the next space) and I do not like keeping an artificially cold apartment, the A/C is set to 78 degrees and used only when the outdoor temperature is above 75 degrees.

THE AIRPORTS
------------------------
It takes :

20 mins to travel from LGA by taxi for $20; 40 mins on the M60 bus for $3.
60 mins to travel from JFK by taxi for $60; 90 mins on the A subway line for $5.
70 mins to travel from EWR by taxi for $70; 90 mins by subway/rail/bus for $5-$15.

For drivers, there's a parking garage across the street with a rate of $16/day. There's also street parking that can be found easily. However, NYC's alternate street parking rules apply, excluding Sundays and holidays; the car would need to be moved every other day for street cleaning.

  • It´s hard for me to give a subjective grade to Latasha, because I feel she became a friend. You don´t grade your friends.

    Latasha comes from New Orleans. Maybe that´s all that has to be said. Have you heard of souther hospitility? There you go!

    October 2013
  • Two friends and I stayed at Latasha's for a week and it was exactly what we were looking for. The location is good, albeit a little far from downtown, but it is just a five minute walk to the nearest subway station which connects you to just about every part of the city. Latasha has a great deal of knowledge about New York City and was keen to answer any questions we had. Privacy is limited as the room is in fact formed by petitioning off a larger room, but for the needs of my friends and I it was a great place to stay.

    June 2013
  • Our stay at Latasha's apartment was nice ! Latasha is really welcoming ! Her advices about the city were really helpful for us. The subway was near from the place.

    May 2013
  • Our stay was very nice at Latasha's place. Her welcome was very warm and it made our stay comfortable.

    The place is clean and the beds were really good to catch up on your sleep. Her apartment is easy to access by subway and we (we were 2 girls) felt secure enough in that neighborhood.

    We could also have a breakfast every morning (cereals, toasts, fruits, tea, coffee...).

    April 2013
  • Latasha is a real sweetheart. Her apartment was clean and comfortable. The single bed I slept in was comfortable. The room is really one large room divided into two rooms. I had to walk through the other half of the divided room past sleeping visitors in order to use the bathroom and kitchen. The street noise into our little "room" at night was very loud. I loved the area and there are some great restaurants within walking distance. I would come back again.

    March 2013
  • I spent 5 days with 6 of my friends in Latasha's apartment, and we all loved it! The apartment is small but has everything you need, and most of all, the location is perfect.
    Latasha was always available to respond to any of our questions within a very short time. I will definitely go back there if I get the chance to visit NYC again.

    January 2013
  • It was very basic, clean and 15 mins walk to the top of Central Park (which was great!). Latasha gave us some useful information prior to our arrival in New York and was a friendly host.

    December 2012
  • Foi muito bom se hospedar na Latasha, sempre muito paciente! Lugar simples mas aconchegante e muito bem localizado! Recomendo!

    It was great staying in Latasha, always very patient! Place simple but cozy and very well located! I recommend!

    November 2012
  • Tasha is a great host, friendly helpful and kind. My family and I spent a great week at her home. Great location! I recommend this house to anyone who wants to spend a great time to visit NY! Thank you Tasha!!!

    November 2012
  • This is my second time staying with Latasha. She brings it everytime! Super friendly and fun. Her apartment is clean with all the amenities, and the other guests who are there are always very nice as well. Hope to see you soon L!
