    Historical Traveler Reviews Sugar Hill Harlem Inn New York City

    Bed & Breakfast in NY

    from

    We found the Sugar Hill Inn to be a beautiful place to stay. The room was true to the advertisement on-line. The room was clean although the bath shower needed some attention. The location is ideal but finding street parking was not as easy as they claim. We suggest public transportation all the way. Our only disappointment was in the breakfast part of the B & B.

    The Bed was great but the Breakfast was not.

    Fabulous and Unique Place to Stay

    from

    I can't say enough great things about the Sugar Hill Harlem Inn.

    We loved the slightly-off-the-beaten path location - the neighborhood is much quieter and more low-key than other parts of Manhattan, but everything is incredibly accessible, thanks to close proximity to several different subway lines and some great bus lines (the bus is a fantastic way to see the city, by the way). I know some people may hear "Harlem" and be concerned about the neighborhood, but it should be noted that this part of Manhattan is actually safe, relaxed, family-oriented, and beautiful - the tree-lined streets and stately brownstones alone are worth the stay. We felt comfortable coming back to the Inn late at night, and we parked our car one block away, on Amsterdam Avenue, and left it there for three days, with no problems and for free!!

    As for the actual Inn, our room (the Miles room) was tastefully decorated, incredibly clean, and so unique! We really enjoyed having a fridge for left-overs and a stove for making tea. We never actually made it for the Inn's breakfast (which was included), but it sure smelled delicious.

    If you are looking for a truly different experience, you should absolutely book this place. It's certainly a great way to see the "real" (as opposed to "touristy") side of NYC.

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    The Sugar Hill Harlem Inn was a great stay. We stayed in the suite on the top level. There were 4 adults and one child. There was more than enough space for all of us. The kitchen was great and allowed us to cook on the nights we did not want to eat out. The inn is just a quick train ride to everything. This is such a perfect location because it is so quiet at night. After visiting Times Square and other sites it is nice to feel like you are getting away from the hustle and bustle at the end of the night. I would definitely recommend this hotel and the suite for a family with children. It's affordable and extremely nice. Jeremy and Bernadette are extremely helpful with any needs you may have.

    A Harlem surprise

    from

    The place is a very good surprise. The rooms are warm and comfortable, well furnished in a fashionable "old jazz" style.

    Jeremy and Bernadette are friendly and helpful.

    Harlem is very well linked to the rest of Manhattan (20 minutes from Times Square) and you feel safe walking around, a thing we didn't espect.

    We'd suggest the SHHI to our friends.

    Cosy and Hospitable base to explore New York

    from

    Having Spent a long time searching for affordable and decent accommodation in New york over the first weekend in December we finally settled on Sugar Hill Harlem Inn. We were a little apprehensive about the area but we needn't have worried. The walk to the close by A Train is quite pretty and as safe as anywhere in the world.

    We stayed in Lena's room which was a beautiful large old room with small bathroom adjacent. The room had TV as well as DVD a safe, hair dryer and lovely soft robes. There is no kettle in the room which would have been nice to make tea or coffee.

    Continental Breakfast is lovely around a nice round table with the other guests.

    While out of the main city, it only takes 15 minutes on the A Train to get to the city. There is also a lovely restaurant around the corner called Baton Rouge, which was fantastic, probably the best meal we had in New York.

    Jeremy and Bernadette were lovely hosts and very welcoming.

    Loved This B&B

    from

    Had never been to NY, so when the shuttle driver stopped in a neighborhood of brownstones, I was a little leery of being "Lost in New York"! But once we went through the doors, the place was GREAT!! I found Jeremy & Bernadette to be very friendly and knowledgeable about NY happenings & history. We (my sister and I), were in the Satchmo room, which was huge. It has a wonderful patio off of the bathroom. I wish I had more time to spend utilizing it. It's very close to the subway, but I preferred the bus, so I could see more of the city. We returned late at night most nights, and were never bothered by anyone on the streets. I found most of the people to be friendly and the rest just basically ignored you. So I felt very safe everywhere around the area. I would definitely recommend the Sugar Hill Harlem Inn and have every intention of staying there on my next visit!

    Lovely Bed & Brekafast

    from

    Stayed 5 nights and had the Satchmo Room. It was wonderful, a large abd beautifully furnished room with the biggest - and highest - bed I have seen. The bathroom is great with a shower, tub and basin. It also has its own little patio - regretfully no time to use it.

    The location is a bit of a trip to main sites and shops of central Manhattan, but if you do as the song says and take the A train which is an express train you can be at Columbus circle in 15 minutes. A short bus ride from the top of the road to 122nd street takes you to a great selection of restaurants.

    Jeremy and Bernadette are very friendly and hospitable - without ever getting in the way. Can really recommend this.

    Very pleasant stay at NYC, at a very reasonable price!

    from

    After days of research for different places to stay, I found the link to this lovely B&B. Made a reservation easily and no surprises came in the bill. From the welcome to the last good-bye everything was in its place. The rooms are enormous considering the average space in most NYC hotels. Well equipped and very clean, Every room is different in size and furniture. People who run this place are always nice to the guests and willing to help in all the needs of a tourist, just like I was. It's nice to share the table with other guests to have breakfast in the morning and chat in the meanwhile. Decoration is coherent and of good taste. Neighborhood is quiet, and subway station 145st. is not far from here. "A" train will get you to the main attractions in few minutes. I'd recommend Sugar Hill Harlem Inn to anyone who wants to visit NY either for pleasure or business, and pay a reasonable amount for a very decent service.

    Discovering Harlem

    from

    We've just spent 4 nights at this B&B in Harlem and really had a good time there. The innkeepers Jeremy and Bernadette took good care of us. If you need any information about NYC, Jeremy will be glad to help you. If you have any problem in the house, don't hesitate to ask Bernadette.

    The neighbourhood is not as bad as we expected. It's even a quiet place. You have a tube connecting directly from there to Manhattan (approx 20 minutes).

    Good value.

    A great experience

    from

    We just came back from our 10 days trip to New York. We haven't been to the US before.

    We were not expecting such a magnificent accomodation. First of all we were impressed about the warm welcome, after travelling for around 11 hours. The Renaissance Suite was our home for this time. Already after the first minute we felt very comfortable. We felt like beeing at a friends home. It is great furnished and we had every comfort.

    The time we have spent at "our home" was great and we felt just very comfortable, also because of the tranquility of the place.

    Thank you for every thing!
