“Great location, value, and owners!”
Reviewed 9 April 2011

Late review for a December stay…..my husband and I stayed at this hotel in early December. Our $30 round-trip flight savings was about to get annihilated by extremely expensive lodging until I found this place on Trip Advisor. As mentioned by others, the Brownstone was close to the subway lines, pretty quiet for NYC standards, and was a really great price for the huge room that had a kitchenette. Getting to 102 Brownstone from the airport was a breeze: we hopped on the M60 bus, got off on Lenox Avenue and 125th Street and walked the rest of the way.

Lizette was wonderfully kind and gracious. She let us drop our bags off early and also surprised us with champagne and balloons to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely be back!

I stayed in 102 Brownstone with my girlfriend over New Years Weekend. It really is not so far from downtown, just a twenty minute metro road or so depending on where you get on. It is five minutes walk from the 116th Street Metro and easy to find. The neighborhood is safe enough, interesting, and just steps from Minton's (a very historic jazz bar) which was unfortunately dark while we were there. But no worries lots of interesting jazz bars throughout Harlem. Really good music scene. But back to 102 Browstone. The manager is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and we slept very well. I will definitely stay at 102 Brownstone the next time I am in NYC. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

We stayed there in December for 3 nights. The rooms are exactly like the pictures shown on their home page and the owners are very friendly and helpful.

The area is very nice and tranquil and makes a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city center. The metro is just 2 minutes walking, central park another 8 minutes and there are several good restaurants in the area. We had our breakfast every day at a nice place called "cafe latte", just 100 meters down the street. There is also a well assorted supermarket just across the street .

The price is reasonable and we would definetely go there again.

Stay here if you want to feel like a real New Yorker. The 102 was a perfect location, so near to Central Park and the subway. Coming out the door down the steps of the brownstone was such a classic American scene. I stayed here with my family to celebrate my sisters birthday in New York. They were all new to NYC and loved it. It was a real gem to find such an easy going place that you could feel at home in. Rooms had plenty of space and all the comforts we needed.

My partner and I stayed at 102 Brownstone for seven nights. This was our first visit to New York.

We stayed in the Chalet Room, which is about the same size as a standard hotel room, with a small private shower room (no bath), plenty of storage for clothes, an iron, hairdryer, TV, DVD player, microwave, fridge, a couple of mugs and dishes, and a few knives, forks and spoons. It's certainly not luxurious accommodation, but it's not without its charm, and it's a comfortable place to crash after being on your feet all day.

Plus points: Cheap, comfortable, two minutes to the subway, pharmacy and supermarket right across the road, ATM machine just around the corner, busy community feel in the surrounding location, you get your own external key so don't need to be in by a certain time, landlady leaves you to your own devices so plenty of privacy.

Minus points: Lots of holes in the bed sheets which wasn't a deal breaker but seemed strange because the rest of the room was well looked after, no view out of the window except on to backyards and adjacent apartments (but if you're out all day it doesn't matter), we had to ask for fresh towels and for the room to be cleaned (but cleaning was thorough when it eventually happened and the holes in the sheets disappeared), bit stingy with the toilet roll(!), no coffee-making facilities.

All in all, a comfortable budget hotel, well worth the money, and well located for easy access to the city, but don't expect anything fancy.
