Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Wayne est un hôte extrêmement agréable et chaleureux, qui a su contribuer à la qualité de notre séjour tout autant que la chambre en elle-même.
    La chambre est très bien placée et accueillante et permet de découvrir la ville sans aucun problème.

  • Thanks for the hospitality, Wayne! The room was comfortable, and we loved the neighborhood. Red Rooster is a must for anyone who stays here - you're just 4 blocks away!

  • I had a great stay at Wayne's! The place is clean, comfortable, sunny and ideally located close to restaurants (a couple of steps away from legendary Sylvia's for instance) and the subway on 125 st. Wayne is a nice host, friendly and helpful.

  • hi. This was our first experience with airbnb and we liked the way it works. We had a wonderful stay at Wayne s apartment. The room was large enough, very quiet, with lots of natural light.of course it needs to be refurbished a bit but we did not mind. Access to the subway was very easy, just less than 10 minutes away. Lots of storage in the room. Wayne is very nice, polite and helpful host. thank you

  • Nous avons passé une semaine début avril. La chambre est grande et correspond parfaitement à la photo. La chambre donne sur le jardin, ce qui fait que ce n'est pas trop bruyant. La salle de bains est propre et la literie de bonne qualité. On est à 4 blocs du métro et on rejoins Times Square en 10 minutes. Wayne est un hôte très agréable et très serviable

  • Just returned from a week's stay here, and enjoyed every minute of it, from the friendly welcome from Wayne, to exploring the neighbourhood. The beds were comfortable, and having our own private bathroom was a bonus. The road is extremely quiet at night -no traffic noise. There is a garden out back if you need to smoke, and mostly everything you need in the kitchen. There is a large supermarket 5 mins walk away, and the nearest Metro (125 St) just 10 mins walk, the No2/3 Express train takes you downtown fast.. We had no worries walking home late at night. We can recommend Bill's Place for Jazz on Fri/Sat nights, and Sylvia's for Soul Food. We would definitely go back to stay with Wayne on our next trip. Much more fun than a boring hotel!

  • I'll start by saying that this is a great value and that the host, Wayne, was very friendly and welcoming. The location in Harlem is what it is, you get the experience of Harlem at the cost of being a bit far away from downtown Manhattan. This isn't a big deal since the subways can get you there so fast anyway. The room was exactly as shown in the photos and was clean.I t was really great to have a private bath (not available for all rooms in the building). Things that could be improved: Our room was never cleaned nor the bathroom towels replaced while we were there (5 days), but that may have been our fault. Due to some health issues and reduced energy we tended to sleep late and only left the room near noon most days. There was a coffee machine and refrigerator (a rare find for a B&B) in the room, but no coffee for the coffee machine. Also, if there had been a microwave in the room rather than having to trek downstairs to the shared kitchen we could have made better use of the refrigerator. We never did figure out the TV (email hidden) would have helped, but we weren't there to watch TV anyway. This sounds picky-I just wanted to paint the whole picture. It really comes down to expectations and I've seen better for less money (but not in NYC) and worse for more money at other B&B's. Overall you get great value for your money here and if you spend some time with Wayne you'll have some great conversation.

  • The room is just perfect and it looks like in photos, it's clean and functional and the kitchen is very spacious and well furnished. The subway is a 5 minutes from the house and it's possible to arrive at Times Square in 10 minutes.The neighborhood is very quiet and characteristic. Wayne is the best home owner that you can meet: polite, kind, friendly and willing to help for anything. We have also partecipated in organized dinners with other guests of the rooms made available to him, it was very funny!! Certainly we will come back to Wayne in the next trip to Nyc. Wayne you are the best, see you soon! :)
