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.

Thank you Jorin for a very nice week in your apartement in New York. We were very happy in all ways with your apartement. Homely and cozy with all the flowers, a nice bathroom and kitchen, friendly neighborhood with a lots of good restaurants and a supermarket one block away with excellent selection; - the best belgian beer half the prize as in Norway! Thank you! We would love to come back. Tormod, Guri and Kari
We stayed in Yorins apartment with our 2 daughters for 9 days and we had a great time. We really felt at home. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is huge. We liked the vintage furniture and the art pieces.
Yorin is a lovely host. We could easily contact her when we had questions. She wrote a lot of information in the visitors map. We also got a lot of information about good restaurants in the neighborhood. The apartment is near the metro so it's easy to get everywhere you want. Central Park is a 10 minutes walk.
There is a great best food market just around the corner and a lot of nice shops and restaurants nearby. This part of Harlem is a great place to stay!
We can highly recommend Yorins apartment!
We had a wonderful stay at Jorin's place. Jorin was an excellent host and our communication was really good. She answered all of my questions immediately and was very kind to us. Everything was well organized and we all are very satisfied with our stay. Thank you Jorin!
Very good appartment! It's a huge place where you can rent for 4 ou more peolple with no worries. It's well cleaned and located next to the subway. But the best is the attention of the owners. They take care of everything and answer quickly your questions. So helpful and neighborly. I super recommend! Best, Igor.
we had a great time in jorin and Hans' appartement, it was very easy to contact Jorin, she was really being very helpful. Everything was well organized, including a Guest book with vlauable Informations about nyc and the neighbourhood. Also our children loved it there.
Lovely large apartment in a nice, quiet neighborhood with many children's playground and restaurants nearby. The apartment was beautifully decorated, the landlady had made everything clear to us, for example, were both breakfast, coffee and soap put forward to us. The only drawback was the heat, but we also had heat wave when we were there. The landlady wrote regular mails to us and there were good opportunities to get help. We enjoyed our 13 days in the apartment very much and felt welcome in kvarteret.Harlem is a quiet and good alternative to the more noisy downtown :)
Dejlig stor lejlighed i et dejligt, roligt kvarter med mange legepladsen og spisesteder i nærheden. Lejligheden var smukt indrettet, værtinden havde gjort alt klart til os, fx var der både morgenmad, kaffe og sæbe sat frem til os. Eneste minus var varmen, men vi havde også hedebølge, da vi var der. Værtinden skrev løbende mails til os og der var gode muligheder for at få hjælp. Vi nød vores 13 dage i lejligheden meget, og følte os velkomne i kvarteret.Harlem er et roligt og godt alternativ til det mere larmende downtown:)
El apartamento, muy amplio, y las camas muy comodas, En general, el apartamento bastante bien, excepto por un problema en el baño, que no tragaba el water, se embozaba. Los primeros dias, mal,lo arreglamos nosotros, y despues bien.
En cuanto a la zona, el metro esta bastante cerca, a cinco calles, que coges el express, y superbien. Un Harlem light. En resumen, lo recomiendo para una semana,E
El anfitrion, bien, estuvimos en contacto muchas veces, y me dio consejos de que visitar, y sobre el barrio pero no me soluciono el problema del baño, lo tuve que hacer yo.
Ruim en gezellig appartement met drie slaapkamers een badkamer en ruime keuken met eetbar in een leuke buurt in Harlem. Er is een goede wifi verbinding en ook goede airco (wij waren er in augustus). Je zit op 10 minuten van central park en op 5 minuten van de metro op de 125e straat. Dat is trouwens ook een leuke winkelstraat. Jorin is altijd bereid om goede tips te geven en alles rondom het appartement was goed geregeld. Supermarkt op twee minuten lopen. Als we weer gaan zullen we zeker proberen om het appartement van Jorin weer te huren.
