  • This was my second time staying at Wayne's and again it was great. Very clean and comfortable. Wayne is a really nice guy. Anything you need here's there to accommodate. If you're looking to stay in Harlem, stay at one of Wayne's places.

  • bon accueil de Wayne; la chambre qu'il nous a louée est sur la rue, bruyante, pas de clim ; le quartier de Harlem est très sympa et vivant

  • Harlem is a local area located at upper Manhattan. My friend and I are happy with the location. Wayne was very friendly and picked us up around the corner. We talked and he gave us some advice. His son was very kind and show us nice place to have a night out! We enjoyed our stay and we will recommend this place to our friends.

  • hola!! es mi primera experiencia con airbnb y ha sido muy buena, mi anfitrión ha sido muy buenos con nosotros a pesar de hablar idiomas diferentes siempre estuvo atento y muy servicial con nosotros. La casa esta muy bien y la habitación donde nos quedamos era amplia y me sentí muy comoda. Ademas esta a 5 minutos del metro, por lo que en menos de 10 minutos estabas en el centro de nueva york. EStoy muy contenta con el viaje, la estancia y sobre todo con mi anfitrión. Muchas gracias por todo Wayne

  • Logeren bij Wayne is een beetje een New Yorker worden!
    Na de eerste dag wennen aan de subway en voelen of het echt wel veilig is in Harlem. Maar al bij dag twee voel je jezelf bijna als een inwoner als je de volgende dag mee gaat in de flow met alle NewYorkers naar Manhattan en snachts terug komen zonder je ook maar een beetje onveilig te voelen. Het was geweldig, en mede dankzij Wayne die bijvoorbeeld spontaan een diner-feestje organiseerde met ander gasten, vrienden en buren. Het was bovendien een bijzondere ervaring voor mijn zoon van 15 die dan ineens op doordeweekse avond in het hart van Harlem in het Engels staat te praten over Obama’s Health plan met prachtige charmante new-Yorkse dame. Die ervaring kunnen ze hem op school nooit bijbrengen . Onze kamer was meer geschikt voor een stelletje dan voor een moeder met een puber zoon. Maar de volgende keer als het hele gezin mee gaat dan kom ik zeker terug bij wayne in een van zijn appartementen, maar dan ga ik denk ik toch gezellig in de gezamenlijk keuken beneden zitten. Juist de interactie met andere en Wayne heeft ons verblijf bijzonder gemaakt.

    Staying at Wayne is a little like becoming a NewYoker!
    The first day you need to get used to the subway en feel for Yourself that it really is save in Harlem. But the next day you go with the flow of the people traveling the subway to Manhattan in the morning and come home late at night without feeling scared at al. It was wonderful, and not in the least because of Wayne who spontaneous threw us a dinner party with guests, friends and neighbors. How often do you see your 15 year old son talking about the health plan of Obama with a charming young American lady in a foreign language . That experience he does not pick up at school . Our room was more suiting for a couple than for a mother with a teenage soon. Next time when I bring my whole family to Wayne’s place and book the top floor apartment . But still I will visit the kitchen downstairs because talking with others guests and Wayne made our stay at Wayne’s place priceless.

  • Nous avons passés 2 nuits chez Wayne et nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour. Wayne nous a accueilli chaleureusement et nous a donné plein de bons plans sur le quartier et les activés à faire! La chambre était grande et était très propre ainsi que les parties communes. Le quartier est agréable avec plein de restaurants et de bars à proximité. le métro se trouve à quelques minutes et permet de se rendre à Times Square en 10 minutes! Nous retournerons certainement chez Wayne lors d'un prochain voyage!

  • Wir haben 10 Tage bei Wayne gebucht. Es war super. Ich kann ihn nur weiterempfehlen! Er ist herzlich, ein symphatischer Typ, hilft bei Fragen wo er nur kann und für einen Wein abends und nette Gespräche ist er auch zu haben. Wir haben die Zeit bei ihm genossen. Das Zimmer entspricht den vollen Erwartungen. Und zur Metro von seiner Whnung aus sind es auch nur 8 min. Zum Bus dauert es nicht mal 5 min. In der Gegend kann man super essen. Wir waren im Harlem Shake, Silvias Restaurant, Red Rooster und Maison Harlem. Alles sehr sehr zu empfehlen. Dann gibts es noch direkt da um die Ecke das IL CAFE LATTE...hammer da waren wir sogar zwei mal brunchen und dieses Cupcakes, Göttlich...:D
    Also nicht lange warten : buchen ;)

  • We stayed for 7 days at Wayne's. He was a great host. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. We found Harlem and the subway line to be very central and convenient. Wayne was happy to give advice about the area and was very informative. The Harlem experience is also worth it. We shared a bathroom, but barely crossed paths with any other guests.
