One large guest bedroom available in our 3 bedroom apartment in South Harlem. We are just 10 short blocks from Central Park, close to Columbia University, and an easy 15 minutes by to mid-town via the A Train (express subway).
Yours is a back bedroom located right next to the bathroom, and separated from the rest of the living space by a 30' hallway. The bedroom is spacious and quiet, with desk, wifi, and plenty of privacy. There is a full-sized double bed with a very comfortable, deluxe futon mattress on it. We provide fresh linens, towels and light breakfast (self serve: fruit, yogurt, granola, bagels or toast, eggs, and plenty of tea and excellent coffee!)
A comfortable, very spacious top floor apartment - the perfect space for a single traveler or couple looking to be conveniently close to everything in NYC but also able to "get away from it all". Our cool and funky flat is full of plants, artwork and music, with a large eat-in kitchen and hardwood floors throughout. There is an elevator and wifi, and you are welcome to come and go as you like - your room is closest to the front door so you will not be disturbing anyone.
OUR HARLEM NEIGHBORHOOD:
We are located in South Harlem - just 10 blocks from Central Park, in an area now affectionately being called "SoHa".
It's funky and diverse, with lots of history and character, and the streets are very broad and well-lit so its easy and safe to walk around even at night. (Check out our reviews to see what our previous guests had to say).
CAFES, BARS, RESTAURANTS:
There are lots of shops, cafes, bakeries, bistros, wine bars, beer gardens, and night clubs all within a 10 block radius, and it seems like a new restaurant is opening up every month!
We are surrounded by Harlem brownstones, gospel churches, and old jazz haunts. The Apollo Theater, Minton's Playhouse and Lenox Lounge all only a few blocks away. Also close by is the Studio Museum of Harlem, and Celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson's restaurant, Red Rooster. Make sure to check out our Neighborhood Guidebook to see all the nearby shops, bars, and restaurants!
A SHORT WALK TO:
Central Park (10 minutes)
Saint John's the Divine Cathedral (15 minutes)
Columbia University (15)
Apollo Theater (5)
Morningside Park (5)
Cafe's, bars & restaurants (everywhere!)
3 subway stations (5)
GETTING DOWN TOWN:
We are just a 5 minute walk to subways 2,3,A,B,C,D and only 15 minutes by subway to midtown (Penn Station, Rockefeller Center, MOMA) or 25 minutes to downtown (West Village, SOHO, Union Square etc). Most of the major museums including the Museum of Natural History, Guggenheim, Whitney and the Met are just 30 minutes by bus or subway, or a nice walk through the park from us.
We are a couple in our mid 40's - a vegetarian chef and a guitarist/composer. We are both freelancers and spend a lot of time at home, involved in our own projects, so are looking for someone who is also quiet and respectful of the space.

We had a wonderful residence in NY at the apartment of Jorin and Hannes. In advance we reiceived detailed information from Jorin how to geht from the airport to the appartment. We stayed for 7 nights and felt very welcome and comfortable. Hannes was our host (Jorin was not in NY during our stay). Hannes is a very kind and blitheful person and he made our stay very pleasant. He gave us a lot of helpful information. The breakfast was includet and we got everything we required. The room is clean and big enough for two persons. The bathroom is also close to the room. We felt very safe there, the subway is about 5 minutes away and it is easy to get everywhere in the City :)
We can highly recommend to stay at Jorins and Hannes appartment!
Thank you Hannes for this wonderful week and the good conversations with you :)
All the best from Austria :)

We had a great week at Jorins appartement in august. The room is nice and you have enough space for all the luggage. The supermarket a few minutes to walk from the appartement is really good. Great fresh fruits, salads and meals.
Jorin wasn't in New York during our stay but Hannes also was a really nice host. Very friendly and helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much!
It was a perfect holiday with a perfect place to stay. Jorin and her husband were really nice and helpful. If you need something printed, if you have questions or you want some advice they can give it to you.
They have a big apartment with a private room close to the bathroom were you will stay. Every morning nice breakfast with all your favorites. The apartment is close to the subway and Central Park.
I deffently would advise my family and friends to stay with Jorin!
Confortable and well sized room, close to the bathroom, just at the entrance of the apartment. Breakfast is included with fresh product in self service.
We have spent a wonderful week and highly recommend this address.
Hannes has been very kind with us and been full of good advices for our big apple's trip. We had a great stay with you in your superb flat.
Thanks a lot.
