Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This apartment had everything we needed. It has a great location, being close to the bus stop and subway stations. Melanie was very helpful and gave us recommendations on where to get groceries and how to get places. She was very accommodating for our needs. We would definitely recommend staying with her because we really enjoyed our stay.

  • Our stay at Harlem Diggs was good. The apt is nice and tidy. Unfortunately we didn't manage to make the wireless work. I think that the apt is a great location and it's worth its price.

  • great location & good amount of private space.

  • The apartment is in a great location - a block away from the express train so access to midtown was quick and easy. Despite being a block away from the busiest street in Harlem, the apartment was very quiet. It was comfortable and Melanie is a perfect hostess. She answered any questions I had quickly. I would definitely stay there again.

The appartement is enough for 2 people close to the supermarket too. Thank you to air bnb for this good deal and thank you to our host Melanie.

  • Our stay at Melanie's place was very nice. The apartment is very clean, you will find plenty of fresh towels and a comfortable bed. There is everything you need in the apartment and as other reviewers have noted, the neighborhood is very convenient for traveling, shopping, dining etc. Most important of all, Melanie is an excellent host. She is very friendly, accommodating and ready to help with whatever you need. Thanks Melanie for everything, and also her son Menelik, thank you, for helping us with our issue with Amazon delivery. Overall, Harlem Diggs is highly recommended for anyone wishing to spend a peaceful time in NY.

  • Perfect base in New York City. I rented this apartment with my cousin for the month of August. The apartment is only 1 block away form the 2/3 express trains, also the A/B/C/D trains are nearby. You can get around easily and fast this way. Neighborhood is great, you can find everything you need within walking distance (Pharmacy, Grocery store, Bodega, Post Office, etc.) also a lot of places to get food or dine around, and the nightlife on Lenox Avenue is nice. (bar called Corner Social at end of street) Shopping on 125th is awesome, especially if you are into street wear and urban clothing, lots of sneaker stores.

    The apartment was very clean when I checked in, and everything worked properly. It is spacious too, especially for NYC standards. Comfortable and equipped with everything we needed.

    Melanie was a great host, very welcoming and funny. Although I haven't seen her a lot during my stay, she was always very nice and friendly, even reached out to me thru txt mssg a couple of times to check if everything was ok and if we needed our towels/linen washed. That was very sweet and thoughtful.

    I can definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting New York and wanting to experience the city like a local. Harlem is great, the apartment is great, and from there it's easy to get to midtown and the rest of the city, what else do you need?

    Excellent first AirBnB experience : )

  • Our stay in Harlem Diggs was really nice; Melanie was available if we had any questions, and the neighbourhood, really, is great. Many markets around (on 125th Street), nice places to eat (you have to try the Red Rooster!), many things to see. It's worth taking the time to explore the area. Walking tours are available, given by people who love their neighbourhood. The Subways and buses are also very accessible.
    At all moments we felt safe walking on the streets, even at night.
    The apartment was nice, although the kitchen could be better equipped - the pots and pans are hardly usable on gas because the metal is to thin and everything just sticks in them. A toaster and a cutting knife would also be nice. The shower has very low pressure, but we get used to it.
    Besides that, we were always glad to come back home after a long day of walking. The area is very quiet, thus close to everything.
    Thanks to Melanie, our stay was great!

  • The apartment is very nice and quite big. It has everything that you coud need and is very comfortable. We spent a week there. The location is not the best, especially when you are back late in the evening, but the 125th street is ok, so you can walk through that. Public transportation around is great! Two subways and a very convenient bus stop.
    The host was very nice. We have reiterated problem with the toilet during our stay and she was prompt to solve them.
    We would suggest other people to stay there for their holidays!
