This is a review from an Airbnb User -
"I come to NY to study hair fashion and all my regular hotels were full so I tried Air bud for the first time. This was my sixth time in NY and my first time in Harlem. This part of Harlem is diverse and lively and added an amazing new adventure for me in NY. Harlem is a very musical and friendly place. My room was just as described with my own private bath and plenty of closet space to hang all of my stuff. This space also has a kitchenette area for all your tasty left overs. There is also WiFi . Dr. Dennah was The best host. She has the patients and the knowledge to help a tourist master public transportation systems. well worth the $$ - Mike Garcia from Kansas City" - Michael

  • "we stayed at the Two Studio Apartments:

    Newly Renovated Garden Apartment

    [ ]


    Newly Renovated Apartment in NYC

    [ ]"

    The apt. is close to major bus routes in and out of downtown NYC & Central park.

    Apt is clean and secure. Neighbourhood is 'up and coming', rather than the more degraded Harlem streets, which are nevertheless not too far away.

    It is a busy neighbourhood and there is plenty to see, though this particular street is almost exclusively residential and reasonably quiet.

    We stayed during very cold weather and so did not get to enjoy the spacious outdoor space to the rear of the property, but enjoyed our stay.

    There's no kitchen but microwave ovens and refrigerators are provided and Dr Dinnah very kindly provided nice deli sandwiches on the day that we left - a nice touch from a caring, very-involved host.

    All in all this is a 'value' apartment and what it may lack in luxuries it more than makes up for in location and value - plus the charming and informative Dr Dinnah is ever on hand to give advice on everything in the most genteel and refined manner befitting a very gracious hostess.

    Did I say that we stayed at both apartments? Not just one? Yes - I did. Good.

    There are two bathrooms as well - because of course there were two apartments - both of which we stayed at.

    Not just one.

    Dr Dinnah really is a kind lady who wants to help her guests and goes the extra distance to make sure you are comfortable. When one of the fold-out beds broke (a leg fell off) she was 'round in no time to show me where I could replace it from a cellar in her building.

    There are nearby bars and restaurants and a grocery store or ten. All in all a great place to stay if you have a big posse like us - you could not get a Hotel in NYC for 5 times what Dr. P is asking.

    Just book it. You know you wanna...

  • Dinnah est un hôte extraordinaire. Au 'petits soins' pour les personnes qu'elle accueille. Toujours prête à aider, guider, conseiller. Elle vous accompagne avant et tout au long de votre séjour. En arrivant dans l'appartement vous serez déjà dans l'ambiance new-yorkaise, grâce notamment à toutes les 'petites choses' qu'elle aura préparé pour vous (encas, documentations etc).
    L'appartement, lui, est impeccable. Très propre, pratique, équipé comme il faut. Situé dans Harlem, pas très loin de la 125ème, c'est le lieu idéal pour s'immerger dans la vie 'traditionnelle' américaine. Personnellement nous avons adoré ce quartier. En plus, vous n'êtes pas loin de Central Park et les différents accès en métro permettent d'accéder très facilement à tous les quartiers de la ville.
    Enfin, pour parler de rapport qualité / prix. Il est parfait.
    Alors pour tout cela, n'hésitez pas à vivre cette expérience et à la partager avec Dinnah.

    Response from Dinnah .:


    '' Dinnah is an amazing host. The 'Care' for people [SHE] houses. Always ready to help, guide and advise. [ SHE] accompanies you before and during your stay. Arriving in the apartment you will be in the atmosphere in New York, thanks to all the 'little things' that will be prepared for you (snacks, documentation etc.). The apartment, [IT] is impeccable. Very clean, convenient, equipped as it should. Located in Harlem, not far from the 125th, this is the ideal place to immerse themselves in American life 'traditional'. Personally we loved this neighborhood. In addition, you are not far from Central Park and various subway access provides access easily to all parts of the city. Finally, talk about quality / price ratio. It is perfect. So for all this, do not hesitate to have this experience and share it with Dinnah.''

  • L'esperienza da Dinnah è stata (website hidden) sentivamo come a casa. Era bello ritornare la sera dopo essere stati tutto il giorno a passeggiare per le vie di Manhattan. e avevamo la sensazione di trovarci a casa propria. Dinnah è un host piacevolissima, disponibile a darti consigli ed ad indirizzarti bene..

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION: The experience [with] Dinnah was positivissima. It felt like coming home. It was nice to come back in the evening after being all day walking the streets of Manhattan. and we had the feeling of being at home. Dinnah is a delightful host, available to give advice and direct you to good ..

  • Dinnah is a very kind and helpful host. She was always ready to help or to give informations, if I needed it. She even had a sandwich and a soda for me, when I arrived.
    I had a really great stay in her Studio apartment in Harlem. It is close to the metro and people are very friendly.
    The apartment looks the same as on the pictures.
    I would definitely choose her apartment again!

  • This is a great place to stay! My boyfriend and I took the room overlooking the street - both of the flats are on the ground floor. The front-facing flat does have a lot of noise from the street - nothing a pair of earplugs cant cure. Its simple, sparsely furnished but perfect for a short stay. The Harlem neighbourhood is friendly and has local eateries/markets, and the buses & subway are under 5 mins away. Very well located! I also suggest you go to a gospel service whilst you are in Harlem, and check out the jazz bar literally round the corner.
    Dinnah was a fantastic host - do read all the reviews here because they will attest to her kindness and attention to detail. We arrived about 11pm and she was there to greet us, placed milk for tea/coffee and sandwiches in the fridge, and even lent us an iron when we needed it! I would seriously consider staying at Dinnahs again when visiting NYC.

  • Location exceptional, quiet, comfortable house for short stays, cleaning is not excellent.

    Dina is like a mother, ready to give you advice on everything.

  • We had a great stay in New York in apartment Dinnah. The apartment is small but very functional, with a common corridor for two locations in which there is: microwave, fridge and plates and paper cups etc.. The room is suitable for 2, but I think that is 3 or younger couple and a child, it is enough when one does not come to New York to stay in the apartment. The neighborhood is one that can be expected in coming to Harlem. The street can be noisy, but I think it's the same everywhere in NY. We returned several times at night, after a party in a box or a ride to Times Square and we had no problem with people of Harlem. The Metro (lines 2 and 3) is only 5 minutes walk from the apartment and takes about 15 minutes to go to Times Square! The other tube is slightly farther (about 7 minutes walk), and also goes to Times Square! Dinnah is available before booking the holiday, after booking and during our stay there. We had a lot of information from her about the arrival, departure, and small tips. I recommend this property for people who have a small budget, or do not want to put all their money in the rental and as we prefer, enjoy the city of New York. Again, thank you for your hospitality Dinnah! And know that you speak very good French! --- Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à New York dans l'appartement de Dinnah. L'appartement est petit mais très fonctionnel, avec un couloir commun pour les 2 locations, dans lequel se trouve : micro-ondes, frigo et des assiettes et verres en carton etc. La chambre est idéale pour 2, mais je pense qu'en étant 3 jeunes ou un couple et un enfant, c'est assez sachant qu'on ne vient pas à New York pour rester dans l'appartement. Le voisinage est celui auquel on peut s'attendre en venant dans Harlem. La rue est parfois bruyante, mais je pense que c'est partout pareil à NY. Nous sommes rentré plusieurs fois de nuit, après les soirées en boîte ou un tour à Times Square et nous n'avons eu aucun problème avec les personnes d'Harlem. Le métro (lignes 2 et 3) n'est qu'à 5 min à pied de l'appartement, et on met environ 15 min pour aller sur Times Square! L'autre métro est légèrement plus loin ( environ 7 minutes à pied ), et va aussi à Times Square ! Dinnah est très disponible avant de réserver la location, après avoir réservé et pendant notre séjour là bas. Nous avons eu plein d'informations de sa part concernant l'arrivée, le départ, et des petits bons plans. Je recommande donc cette location pour les personnes qui ont un petit budget, ou qui ne veulent pas mettre tout leur argent dans la location et préfèrent comme nous, profiter de la ville qu'est New York. Encore une fois, merci Dinnah pour votre accueil! Et sachez que vous...

  • Dinnah was a wonderful host! She is incredibly welcoming and thorough about everything regarding the apartment and Harlem. Dinnah is a good and quick communicator, which was very helpful for booking and if I needed to ask any questions. She takes care of her guests and made my stay very easy, and I had a great time staying at her place.

  • The room is uglier than it looks in the picture and the neighborhood is quite sinister.
    Dinnah however, is a really smart landlord
    gave us lots of useful advice and tried to help us as she could.
    I recommend the apartment because although the room is not the best Dinnah is really good and next to the house there are many restaurants and food shops but also the metro is nearby

  • What a pleasure to stay at Dr. Dinnah’s place in NYC! The place is neat, clean and spacious. It is equipped with a kitchenette with some basic supplies like a fridge and a microwave oven. The bathroom is clean and roomy.
    The location is easily accessible by trains. The subway station is just a few blocks away, and is totally within walking distance even in the nastiest weather. As a reference, it takes about 20 minutes to get to mid-town Manhattan.
    The apt is located in a safe and multicultural neighborhood. There are plenty of things to do and places to explore if you are bored by the well-beaten paths of attractions in NYC.
    Dr. Dinnah is a fantastic host: understanding, detailed, responsive and caring. I arrived at her apt much later than expected, but she was already there, sitting and waiting for me patiently. She even prepared food and drinks to welcome me! She is very knowledgeable about the city and the neighborhood, so be sure to ask for her recommendations and guidance.
    Conclusion: great place, great host, great value. Highly recommended! Thank you, Dr. Dinnah!
