Having lived in the US and visited Manhattan many times I was surprised that you could actually find a place that was not noisy at night. The B&B was lovely on a nice street in Harlem. The brownhouse itself is beautifully renovated with antique furniture and Rick's gorgeous art on the walls. Rick being a very gracious host took the... More

We stayed two nights at the Harlem Renaissance. The rooms were clean and very spacious. And the breakfast is great, consisting of fresh fruit, a pastry, and (at least in our experience) some lovely German ladies and Rick. Great time.

There are just not enough good words to describe the WONDERFUL stay we had at Rick's beautifully renovated Striver's Row home.

We stayed at this B&B two nights in mid-December 2010. Our host, Rick, could not have been more gracious and accommodating during our stay.

“If you don't like stairs, be sure to select a room on the lower floors. If you have dietary limits, be sure to specify them. The standard breakfasts are fruit and pastry.”

“Any of the rooms will do. The whole place is nice. There are a lot of stairs if you stay on the higher floors. Not a problem for me, but let them know what your needs are if you have physical limitations.”
