Guestbook comments from the owner

Harlem Hideaway was a fantastic choice for our home away from home. Dennis is amazing and was helpful throughout the entire process. We are sad to be leaving and cannot wait to return.

We had a great time @ the Red Rooster our first night and the breakfast wraps @ Cafe Latte are a must!

Fabulous

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harlem Hideaway and would highly recommended it. Denis was a great host and the apartment was in a great location with easy access to restaurants, supermarkets and the subway.
Only real issue was the shower was located over the bath which was too high off the ground and was little tricky too get out without slipping.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about the Harlem Hideaway Parlor Apartment. I enjoyed having you stay here.

I'm sorry you found showering in the original claw foot bathtub a little tricky. I'm happy to say in my 14 plus years here there has never been an accident in getting in and out of these original 1800's bathtubs. Perhaps, just holding onto the side while getting in and out would solve the problem.

I have claw foot tubs in 3 of my four units. I'd love for you to return soon and possibly stay in the Studio Apartment #982538, which has a walk-in shower.

Great Getaway in Harlem

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay immensely and Dennis was a wonderful host. The apartment exceeded our expectations and Dennis provided us with some great insider tips on some local attractions and restaurants in the area. The apartment was clean and well equipped. Any unexpected surprises were pleasant ones, such as having the suite stocked with laundry soap, shampoo and body wash which has not been the case in other VRBO rentals we have had. A lot of thought was put into the details making the home warm, comfortable and inviting. We were just a few blocks away from the subway that provided easy access to and from the apartment to all of our destinations (Broadway plays, a concert, a basketball game at MSG, Central Park) when we were not walking. There were great restaurants within a short walking distance as was the Apollo Theater. The neighborhood felt safe and welcoming where people were polite, friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for more during our stay. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the New York area.

Everything you could expect

We could not have found a better apartement for our 9-night stay in NYC! Everything was exactly as described. The apartment is charming, calm and clean - the perfect "base" for exploring Manhatten. We would love to come back again, and will surely recommend the Harlem Hideaway Parlor Apartment to all our friends!

Harlem Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
As I was recommending this apartment to a family member, I realized that I had never written a review. This is a great place to stay. We visited the city in December 2013, and stayed here. My son and I arrived a day before my husband, and would stay in Harlem again in a minute. Not very familiar with the city and without a car, my son and I easily, and safely wandered the city before our guide arrived. I would highly recommend this apartment building. It is swanky, stylish, well taken care of, and a great location. (And priced much better than Manhattan) The owner is helpful and easy to work with. Two thumbs up!

Fantastic, living like a New Yorker experience!

  • 5 of 5
My son and I had a fantastic holiday in New York and the Harlem Hideaway only enhanced our experience.
Our parlour was beautifully decorated and clean with all the amenities you could ask for including a full kitchen and laundry facilities.
Dennis is a gracious host who couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating.
Excellent position - a 2 minute walk to the subway and perfectly positioned to explore Harlem and all it has to offer on foot.
Close to everything - subway, restaurants, shops (or should I say stores).
I couldn't recommend the Harlem Hideaway highly enough.
Thank you so much Dennis!

Location

This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.

Amenities

From the Owner

The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park. I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.
