On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Dennis. He explained to us all calm and information about restaurants, supermarkets and metro. Also during our stay we got lots of tips from Dennis and we could with all our questions contact him. The apartment is very convenient to reach. Highlights all soon We have no time felt unsafe in Harlem. In fact there was a pleasant atmosphere. The people were friendly and helpful. About the apartment: it is large, about 19 feet long and all amenities are available, even a washer and dryer. Bed was firm and we slept well. The 119th street is quiet and only one way. We went to the Bronx zoo and that is also recommended, in addition to all the familiar things. You got off to a monorail to explain a lot riding because it is a large park.
Bij aankomst werden wij hartelijk ontvangen door Dennis. Hij heeft ons alles rustig uitgelegd en informatie gegeven over restaurantjes, supermarkten en metro. Ook gedurende ons verblijf kregen we veel tips van Dennis en konden we met al onze vragen bij hem terecht. Het appartement is zeer gunstig gelegen om alle highlights snel te kunnen bereiken. Wij hebben ons in Harlem geen moment onveilig gevoeld. Sterker nog er hing een aangename sfeer. De mensen waren vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
Over het appartement: het is ruim, ongeveer 19 meter lang en alle voorzieningen zijn aanwezig, zelfs een wasmachine en droger. Bed is stevig en we hebben goed geslapen. De 119e straat is rustig en slechts eenrichtingsverkeer.
We zijn naar de Bronx zoo geweest en dat is ook een aanrader, naast alle bekende dingen. Je hebt daar een monorail om een stuk rijdend af te kunnen leggen, want het is een groot park.
The home of Dennis was perfect. Apartment beautiful, comfortable in a very quiet family, a little outside the 'fury of the city', which is great after a day of ballads. Very easy access to the metro. In short, a place to recommend ... Completely. Marianne and Leo (Belgium)
L'accueil de Dennis était parfait. Appartement magnifique, confortable dans un quartier calme très familial, un peu à l'extérieur de la 'fureur de la ville', ce qui est très agréable après une journée de ballades. Accès au métro very easy. Bref, un lieu à recommander... Totalement. Marianne et Léo (Belgique)
We were absolutely satisfied with our stay at Denis' Harlem Hideaway. Everything was like expected and even better. Denis is a very kind guy who obviously enjoys hosting people. He was very supportive during our stay and provided us with information not only about the obvious attractions the city has to offer but also shared his knowledge on the more off beaten tracks. Unnecessary to mention that he provided the keys for the apartment at the time and place agreed upon. Moreover, he offered the possibility to store our bags until we left for our departure late in the evening. So we had one more full day to enjoy without worrying about our luggage.
The place itself is a small but cozy studio which is warm furnished. A lot of extras are provided as NYC guidebooks a hub for mp3 players soap shampoo and towels. Denis even provides mascara and a hairdryer as standard equipment. So no need to bring it with you! There is a fully equipped kitchen and a fridge if you feel like cooking.
The apartment is located in a nice and vibrant part of Harlem, just a few blocks from the North entrance of central park. Supermarkets pharmacies and anything you are possibly in need of are just a stone's throw from there. It seems to us that the neighborhood is very safe as the host confirmed as well. Moreover, the apartment is very quite due to its location in a calm side street where it faces a backyard. The location is perfectly connected to the subway and you will make in about 15 min to Times Square on a direct train.
All in all we had a perfect stay at the Harlem hideaway. The only thing you could possibly nag about is the size of the bed. Since it is a not kingsize it might be a bit small for some persons. But again, we didn't see that as problem and would definitely recommend this place.
We enjoyed a great stay in New York. The studio is perfect, it´s beautiful styled and very calm. You find everything you need for your stay. The studio is situated in a small street with nice old houses and trees. Everything is near by, good restaurants and bars and a supermarket. A subway stop is round the corner. and with the express trains all main points of Manhatten and Brooklyn are easy to reach. Dennis was very kind and helpful. For our next stay in New York we will rent this wonderful studio again.
Cozy and clean, great location for its proximity to metro stations. The area is well served by pubs and restaurants.
Luogo accogliente e pulito, ottima posizione per la vicinanza alle fermate della metro. La zone è ben servita da pub e ristoranti.
