About this listing
A floor in our charming Harlem townhouse apartment, restored to its former glory, in historic Hamilton Hieghts. Totally private with own entrance, bathroom and kitchen. Free Wifi is available. One full size bed that sleeps two, second bed available upon requests (twin size)
Here are three things people love about our place.
1) A separate entrance to the space : privacy
2) comfortable space: cozy fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, and garden.
3) Convenient location: located near express and local trains that can take you to all the major sites in the blink of an eye.
Here are three things people don't like about our place.
1) Tricky entrance. Because this is a historic brownstone, the stairway to the space is a little tight.
2) Our taller guests have told us that the bathroom ceiling is a little low. Again, historic brownstone.
3) The space is small, but perfect for a couple sight seeing and exploring New York City.
Come stay in our cozy studio apartment with private access to our garden, for a little greenery in the bustling city. You won't even realize you're staying in the city when chirping birds greet you in the morning. For summer nights, or chilly winter days, relax by our lovely fireplace. No need to chop wood, it's controlled by a remote control!
Great location two stops away from Midtown and Central Park. All of Manhattan is easily within your reach, including Convenient food shopping and great local restaurants nearby.
We invite you to stay and experince old New York.
We are new to Airbnb but have lots of references from my guests who have stayed with us over the pas two years.
The (private) appartement is great! It's very clean and you can use everything. Federico and his wife are friendly and showed us the neighborhood. We would to recommend this place for your visit to New York
Federico is a very helpsome and thoughtful host. He helped us get from JFK Airport to his home up in Harlem. On the way he told us about New York, its' history, its' people, the Harlem neighbourhood and gave us a good feel about our travel destination and our host.
The neighbourhood was actually one of the best experiences we had on our travel. We will definitely recommend this apartment to anyone how may feel the need to "pull back" a little from the noise, speed, millions of people and tourism in down town NYC.
It is a very quiet apartment and very nice with a garden, where you could sit and enjoy a cup of morning coffee. Besides, we got - at least in our own opinion ;-) - a very authentic glimpse of the "real New York".
The apartment was very quaint. We were greeted by Margo and she was very hospitable and gave us great suggestions. The shower is short but it was wonderful to be able to sit down and shower after a long day of walking around New York City. The location was nice because we only had to ride one train for most of the weekend and visited many places. I would gladly stay here again.
Alles war super, Sauber und die Gasteltern waren sehr nett.
Everything was fine, it was clean and Frederico and his wife are very very nice!
We got a very pleasant welcome and we want to thank Frederico and his wife!
The apartment is exactly as the description. The only detail which is not mentioned in the description the bathroom has a low ceiling but except that every think is perfect. The neighborhood is amazing, we loved walking in the street and discovering the new yorkais' habits.
Thank again we recommend this apartment.
Hola, hemos estado cuatro días mi chica y yo y hemos estado muy cómodos, el apartamento para dos es perfecto y esta muy limpio, es tal cual se describe en el anuncio.
Federico desde el primer contacto ha sido muy atento y ha respondido a las peticiones con rapidez. A la llegada nos recibió su mujer, que nos dio unos cuantos consejos para solventar el problema de estar lejos del centro. Pero nos alegramos de quedarnos en harlem porque conocimos un NY diferente al de la gran mayoría que se queda en el centro. Recomendación, su pasáis un domingo por aquí, haced un sunday gospel en el barrio, primero una misa gospel, recomiendo la Abissinian church de la calle 138 y luego a comer al sylvias en la 126.
En definitiva, recomiendo la estancia en el apartamento, gracias Federico.
Stayed here July (phone number hidden), we were greeted and given a quick description of the area and the different restaurants and coffee shops which was very appreciated. The apartment is very cute, small but it worked for us. However...this is not the best bath for tall people. We had to sit in tub to shower with hand held shower head, I could not stand up in tub without touching the ceiling. Having said that, it took no time at all to get used to it, and it just added some more adventure to our trip. The subway is just a short walk away, and you are in Grand Central Station in about 15 minutes. The subway system is amazing, it was all we used, we even took it to JFK On the way home.
The area was very nice, felt safe all the time. The private garden was great. We would come back should we find ourselves in NY again. Thanks

About the Host, Federico
I was born in the Dominican Republic and went to school in Madrid Spain. I love living in diverse multiethnic New York and I enjoy the variety of foods, people and cultures. I especially enjoy my neighborhood because of the friendly nature of everyone on my block. One of the hidden treats that my neighborhood has to offer is the Hispanic Society of America Museum, which is on par with the Metropolitian in its collection of art from Spain. It has paintings by many Spanish masters as well scuplture from every age of Spain's history. It is just three blocks from my home I can see a Velasquez or Goya anytime I want. It is treasure of Spanish art.
We believe in welcoming our guests, and enjoying the diverse people and cultures that these encounters bring. I find that learning about other places and cultures is interesting. All humans share a common decency, respect and love for one another. This coming together of people from all over the world is the essence of New York, unquestionably a very wonderful place right now, of which I am lucky to enjoy.
