    The Harlem Flophouse is certainly not a flophouse in the original sense of the word. The house is very nicely done up in its original state and the rooms all are (as far as we could see when we secretly took a peek in just...More

    This was one of those rare places that you feel lucky to have come across - and that lives up to the reviews. If you're looking for a hotel, the type that has people to open the door, a crap restaurant and bland executive rooms,...More
