    Nous avons pass 9 jours de vacances dans cette maison (2 adultes et 2 adolescents). Le quartier est tranquille et reposant au calme dans le sud de Harlem. La rue est typique, borde d'arbres. La maison est trs grande, confortable, propre et trs bien quipe. Le petit plus : une terrasse (o l'on peut manger) et un adorable jardin avec des cureuils ! Le mtro est proche (quatre lignes de mtro). Une suprette est proximit ainsi que de bons petits restaurants. Merci Erdene pour son sympathique accueil, sa disponibilit, son dynamisme et sa gentillesse ! Nous recommandons cette location ! 31 May 2016 - 18:52:47

    We were in town for a Wedding and the location couldn't have been better! 5 of us stayed and the size worked well. Super easy to walk to the Subway and Central Park. 05 September 2017 - 21:27:00

    After a long exhausting drive from Atlanta, GA it was refreshing to meet Erdene, with her sweet voice she showed us around the premises and told us everything we needed to know about the place. The Brownstone Guest House is just plain spectacular! Lots of history between these walls! Very Spacious Duplex with 2 Living Rooms with lots of seating, Three Bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds, Two big Bathrooms and a great modern Kitchen with everything you need to cook with all stainless steel appliances. The dcor is just marvelous its a mix of old and new chosen with great taste. The neighborhood is excellent, just a 5 minute walk and you find everything you need. Very close from the Apollo Theater, Central Park, Stores and great places to eat. We travel a lot and can definitely say that this stay has been the most rewarding and stress free experience we have ever had. We will definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to have a great vacation or business stay. 14 July 2009 - 16:04:39

    Our stay in Harlem was fantastic. The Brownstone that Erdene had to offer was beautifully remodeled. When you walk in your in the living room with fresh flowers on the mantel and go to the right is the kitchen with marble counter tops and top of the line appliances. Then you go down the hall there is a large bedroom and full bathroom. Also in the hallway was a long desk top where she had internet connection and a printer available for your use. Downstairs there are additional 2 large bedrooms, a family room where all six of us were able to sit and watch the world series on the large flat screen TV with another full bathroom. Hardwood floors through out. I was really impressed on how big and spacious this Brownstone was, SO much better than staying at a hotel. The subway, grocery store and dining are very close only a few blocks away. Everything was very accessible we had no problems finding our way around. Erdene had fresh fruit and muffins at our arrival. Erdene was so wonderful showing us the area, answered all questions we had and gave us her cell phone number in case we forgot anything. We had our doubts about staying in Harlem however we were very safe! Anyone looking for a place in New York, I highly recommend this Brownstone guarantee you will not be disappointed. 03 November 2009 - 20:38:10

    This was an absolutely wonderful brownstone. It surpassed the description. My family of seven had plenty of room we had a fabulous host. We all know NYC very well and didn't feel the need to go out during a very rainy Friday and Saturday except for groceries so the well stocked kitchen and beautiful brownstone made us feel as if we were at home. We watched TV, listened to music, surfed the internet, went on the decks to check out the non-stop rain. It was convenient to the subway, groceries, wine, restaurants. We stayed for 4 days but could have stayed much longer. It was perfect. We will be back. 02 December 2009 - 19:44:53

    The apartment was great but the main 'special feature' was Erdene. She couldn't have been more helpful - from providing snacks on arrival to allowing us to stay on well into the afternoon on our last day as our flight didn't leave until early evening. Also, on my request she took us to her church - a welcoming experience I recommend to anyone. The apartment is tastefully deocrated, large and well -equipped - generous number of large, fluffy towels promptly replaced when used, lots of loo rolls etc. The area felt very safe - local people chatted to us in Harlem and whenever and wherever we got lost there was always someone on hand who was willing and able to give us directions. We'd been told to expect New Yorkers to be rude and aggressive but we found the opposite to be true. One of the highlights of the trip for us was seeing Jimmy Cliff perform live on SummerStage in Central Park - if you go in summer I recommend you get the brochure or check out the schedule online - there are some really great free concerts. I really hope that our first trip to this property won't be our last. 16 July 2010 - 21:02:19

    What a treat an amazing brownstone with everything you could possibly need including the wonderful Erdene who takes care of everything. I have never been treated this well in a faceless hotel. We will definitely be returning and hopefully in the not too distant future. 31 August 2010 - 02:15:42

    And 'the sentence on which we accepted Erdene: fantastic person ready to each of our request! The house is absolutely above expectations: 3 large double bedrooms (one with even a wardrobe!) And the possibility of additional beds. We are two families with two girls each and distribution of rooms was just right as each family had at his disposal an entire floor of the house being ready to duplex. The girls all slept in the same room as the bed very wide. We added one single bed and have a great time! The kitchen is very well equipped with large fridge freezer, oven, toaster oven for toast and much more. The dining area is for 8 persons (six at the table and two on the kitchen counter) and there is also a well-stocked pantry! The bathrooms are large: one with bath and double shower with a very clean and equipped with a large amount of towels and Erdene provides daily withdrawal of those used as the withdrawal of garbage so that the house was always tidy! Theres also a major corridor Erdene has equipped a computer room and a garden that we have not always being used outside. The neighborhood is quiet and the house is not far from the metro (7 / 8 min.) Harlem do not miss the Mass with the gospel choir is truly unique!

    Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for our incredibly friendly and bubbly host Erdene. We were 3 mature couples travelling together and this extremely spacious townhouse had everything we needed for a great holiday. 3 great bedrooms and 2 huge bathrooms, not forgetting 2 sitting rooms as well. Located in a very safe neighborhood and only a short stroll from the 2 subway lines, supermarkets and lots of eating places. Don't want to go out for dinner, then a kitchen drawer is full of take out menus from some incredibly cheap places with a wide variety of delicious food. Why would you pay to stay in an impersonable hotel room when you can have your own home probably for less. We will definitely recommend Erdene's brownstone to anyone we know who is travelling to New York. 27 September 2010 - 23:11:21

    My review is very late having lost the website details - but I definitely wanted to make sure after such an amazing experience, that once I'd found them again I added a review. The Brownstone building is truly fabulous, with character, charm and a feeling of home. It has been restored beautifully and tastefully and has everything you need within it. Erdene has gone to a lot of trouble to ensure everything you might need for your stay is there in abundance and if you manage to think of anything she will go out of her way to get it for you. The location is great, on a tree lined street, with true Harlem character surrounding you. Great access to the subway meaning nowhere is difficult to get to. The whole experience was a really positive first time in New York for me and I totally fell in love with the city, the New Yorkers, Harlem and the Brownstone itself - I will definitely be coming back and hopefully it won't be too long a wait!!! To end though, Erdene herself is what completes an already fantastic experience. She couldn't have done more for us and having travelled quite a lot herself took into account all the small things that can help make a trip more relaxing, including being very accommodating over checkout times ensuring the return trip was as relaxed as possible. She really is a lovely lady and well worth having as a New York contact. As has already been said in other reviews....I can't recommend this place enough.... book it!!! 11 November 2010 - 12:42:00

    This brownstone is simply one of the best rental homes I have come across in my travels. My family and I (a group of 5 adults) chose NYC for Christmas this year. Coming from San Diego, Scottsdale & Chicago and not getting to spend a lot of time together throughout the year, we thought renting a house, where we could all stay together was the perfect idea! And it sure was Not only did this brownstone accommodate us perfectly, it was a beautiful space to stay in. Erdene does an incredible job at keeping the 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, 2 sitting areas, office space (with wireless internet) and full kitchen completely stocked with everything you could possibly need. If you love to cook then you understand the importance of a well stocked kitchen. Erdene has created a great cooking space equipped with everything youll need to cook a lovely meal. (Great pots & pans, knives, utensils the list goes on) The place is beautifully renovated while maintaining its historical Harlem charm. The neighborhood is convenient, safe, close to public transportation also easy to hail a cab/ car from either cross street close to several restaurants and cafs and within walking distance to Central Park. I highly recommend a stroll from the house to and through the park about a 2 hour walk in total at a leisurely pace, but simply beautiful and worth the time. Lastly, I want to comment on Erdene and her accommodating, friendly and truly caring demeanor. Throughout our stay, Erdene made sure we had everything we needed. She is a gracious host. On the last day of our trip, NYC was hit with a snow blizzard which closed down the city, the airports Erdene not only made sure we were safe and comfortable; she extended our stay in the house to accommodate our new departure dates and for those of us that needed additional days, she found us a new place to stay. (The house was booked by other guests but had it not been, I am certain Erdene would have further accommodated our stay.) I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend that you stay here as well. We couldnt have found a better place! 02 January 2011 - 19:22:56

    My family and I recently rented this guesthouse and are still talking about what a great experience we had. The house is impecably clean and has every ammenity you could possibly need. The landlady Erdene is extremely attentive, very fair and incredibly nice. I am originally from NYC and can honestly say that this is my top choice on where to stay with a group of people for any future visit. The neighborhood is also fantastic. Public transportation and Zipcars are within walking distance and so is Central Park. We ate at 5 different restaurants in the area and enjoyed our meals at each one - especially the cafe on the corner. For anyone considering an extended stay in NYC -this location is perfect - book it today - you will not regret it. Thanks again Erdene!! ~ Elina 04 January 2011 - 15:40:59

    I cannot say enough how much this beautiful home made our Thanksgiving time together last year a memorable one. Having lived in NYC for a few years, it is all about location and ease of access to public transportation. I found this a perfect location for access to everything. Harlem is a beautiful place! We enjoyed local eateries, easy access to groceries, and the brief walk to the subway made it easy to explore the entire city! Also the local bodega on the corner had THE best bacon, egg and cheese on a roll... highly recommend! ;) Thanks to the loveliest hostess ever, she made us feel right at home and we were able to enjoy our week in the city without worrying about a thing! Would HIGHLY recommend for larger groups so that meals and relaxation can be enjoyed together. WAY better than a stuffy, overpriced downtown hotel. Did I mention it was absolutely gorgeous on the inside as well? and extremely clean and well maintained!! A sincere thanks again to the beautiful Ms. Erdene!! 22 March 2011 - 13:58:16

    Four of our family members (various ages) stayed here at the end of September. The accommodations were great since both upper and lower levels have a full bathroom and sitting/ living areas. The kitchen had everything we needed for preparing our own breakfast and snacks. It would have been easy enough to cook our own dinners here as well since all cooking equipment and utensils are provided; however we always chose to eat our dinners out. One of our best meals was at "Melba's",where we were lucky enough to have Erdene join us to guide us in ordering some of the most awesome "soul food". Erdene was very helpful with anything we needed. (A minor plumbing issue was resolved quickly). She has tons of information and books available re: anything you may want to see and do in NY and she is a wealth of knowledge herself. Grocery stores, restaurants and subway stations are all within easy walking distance. Our stay in NY was fantastic and surely enhanced by our great host Erdene and her wonderful brownstone accommodation. 24 October 2014 - 11:09:40

    My sisters and I stayed at this beautiful brownstone at the beginning of November and already looking forward to going back! It was my sisters FIRST time, so they were all super stoked to stay in a brownstone. Beautifully renovated kitchen, amazing architectural features, and lots of history in and around the area. This property is centrally located to just about everything. Short walk to 2 & 3 express trains which get you time square in about 10-15 mins if that. Good eateries around and great shopping on 125th (depending on your style) 125th is NOT 5th ave, but if you want some really cheap stuff, 125th is perfect place to grab some stuff. Erdene was a great host. Very knowledgeable, very welcoming , infact, you would think you'd know her forever. The only downside was, the property was not completely ready when we arrived. So after a long 5 hour flight, we still had to wait for everything to be placed in their appropriate places. Overall, we will be back. We are looking forward to seeing Erdene and staying in her beautiful brownstone. Dan 28 November 2014 - 18:29:28

    We stayed at this property for four weeks in December 2016. It was perfect for our family group of young adult children and their partners with plenty of space and privacy for all. The accommodation was very comfortable with a well appointed kitchen and plenty of linen. Erdene was very helpful and made us feel very welcome - she even set up a Christmas tree and provided decorations! It was great to have printer and wifi. The street is quiet but convenient to subway, market and restaurants. Everything you need is at your doorstep. 15 January 2017 - 07:29:50

    Erdene's brownstone is comfortable, roomy, and nicely decorated and maintained. Groceries nearby, including a beautiful Whole Foods, laundromat around the corner, and subway station a few blocks away. Perfect place for our family group of 6 in NYC for the marathon. 06 November 2017 - 17:57:00
