Enter from the front stoop through the ornate carved wood entry arch and you will feel like you have just stepped back 100 years in time. All original oak details which show the charm of gently worn history. Go straight ahead up the carpeted stairs to the top floor to your own private huge room.
The Guest Room is located on the top (3rd) floor of the building. There are no other bedrooms on that floor. It is the only unit rented as a room, rather than a separate apartment. However, many guests prefer this room over the others, as it has its own attributes which makes it special. Its charming retro feel will definitely make your stay in New York special.
The Guest Room is entered by a separate private entrance from the main hall. It is large (18’X18’) and has 3 south-facing windows which have their own original shutters for privacy or to darken the room. It faces the street down below and a clear view of the sky and treetops straight ahead.
Although the Guest Room does not have a formal kitchen, it does have a small refrigerator/freezer, toaster oven, microwave, and coffee maker, along with cups glass, dishes and utensils. These are all neatly hidden in the large armoire between the decorative fireplace and the closet.
The Guest Room has a high definition LED flat screen TV and wifi, as well as a radio/iPod player with an equipped iPod with a Harlem Hideaway playlist of blues and jazz. The queen size bed has a memory foam mattress. It has an antique desk and dresser, a bookcase with unique books and two relaxing woven chairs next to the vertical magazine rack containing vintage magazines and comics. It has an adjustable ceiling fan and lights with dimmer switches. During the summer it has an air conditioning unit.
The graffiti wall is the entire west wall. It contains thousands of signatures of bygone friends and guests (some very famous). A marking pen awaits your own addition to the wall.
The all white bathroom is five steps down the private internal hall. It is not shared and is dedicated only to the guests in the Guest Room. It has a skylight and claw foot tub and fan. The lights even dim to suit your mood. A hairdryer and outlet is provided, as well as a magnifying mirror and special gifts in the medicine cabinet for the ladies. Monogrammed bathrobes, soap and shampoo are also provided.
You also now have access to the beautiful shared backyard.
For an additional $25/night you have total access to the outside terrace on the same floor. You are up in the trees and it is a peaceful and relaxing way to have a cup of coffee, glass of wine, or eat a meal.
Harlem Hideaway has two other options you may want to consider as well: Harlem Hideaway Parlor Apartment sleeps 3 (Home Away # 982545). Harlem Hideaway Studio Apartment sleeps two (Home Away #982538). Garden Apartment (Home Away 3634519). All are full apartments, not guest rooms.

Harlem is the soul of New York City. It is not just about the incredible architecture. This is the friendliest neighborhood I have ever lived in- the best area in Harlem.
The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park.
I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.
Thank you for making our stay in this magical city even more special with your Harlem Hideaway. We really enjoyed every minute in this amazing room and appreciated your help and generosity.
We hope to be back very soon!
Home away from home is the only way to describe the experience. To be honest, it's slightly better than home. This won't be my last visit.

Dennis was a fabulous host. He was easy to reach if we had a question and quick to respond with a reply. The property was just the coolest! We felt we were a pat of the neighborhood. Easy access to the train and if you fly into laguardia - a short bus ride for $2 and change gets you within a few short blocks to the property. The place was clean and had all the amenities you need! Great food and drinks nearby. We spent our 20th wedding anniversary at the hideaway but please don't wait for a special occasion to experience Harlem in this gem of a location. Thanks for everything Dennis! We will be back!
Close to subway and some great restaurants. Beautifully restored brownstone with original woodwork and elegance.
Dennis was the best host and very helpful with information on everything from Harlem to Manhattan. Very peaceful place to stay. We enjoyed this room so much. Next time I want to take my kids and stay in the garden level apartment!! Looking forward to that!!!
OMG!!!!!!! This is the place to be if you are looking for a place to stay in this area or outside the visitors area (NO MORE HOTELS) Book your stay today !!!!!
Dennis is a great host, have stayed with him several times. This unit, like his others, is very well designed. Living area is comfortable, the kitchen is first rate and the unit is very quiet throughout the day. Will use his services every time we visit NYC.
