    Historical Traveler Reviews The Harlem Flophouse New York City

    A Perfect Weekend


    My fiance and I spent a lovely, wonderful, cozy weekend at the Harlem Flophouse. I'm not necessarily used to staying in shared-bathroom accomodations, but with so few rooms sharing the two bathrooms it was a non-issue. Staying at the Harlem Flophouse means seeing a different, distinctive part of NYC - it reminded me why I love the city so much and how much I miss living there! Granted, it's not a luxury hotel, but I would definitely choose to stay there again.

    Great Stay!


    My husband and I stayed at the Harlem Flophouse for 5 nights for our honeymoon. We both wanted to avoid the typical hotel stay - i.e. the Comfort Inn, Mariot, Sheraton... generic hotel feel.

    Wonderful Stay


    The Flop House was a great place to spend 3 warm spring days in New York. The room was large, bright and quiet with a hand made quilt lying on top. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the neighborhood is up and coming. Felt very comfortable and it was a great place to launch each day. Central Park was approx. a 15-20 minute walk and the 125th subway stop was 5 minutes away. Would definitely return.



    Stayed three nights in the Harlem Flophouse. Wonderfully decorated in a relaxed bohemian style. The proprietor, Rene Calvo, is laid back and charming. If you can't survive without sleek hotel service and obseqious flunkeys this is not the place for you - wait until the Harlem Marriot opens. But if you value a truly unique and personal experience then this is a very rare chance to enjoy just that. It's like borrowing a room from an eccentric but very stylish friend. Charming, comfortable, welcoming, personal. An absolute one-off. And 2 blocks from the Lenox Lounge. As good as it gets.

    Discreet & characterful - just right!


    A lovely alternative to bland, dreary tourist accommodation in NYC. This Harlem brownstone has been (?is being) evocatively restored with polished wooden floors, wood and plaster mouldings and an eclectic selection of vintage furniture. Although the Flophouse is lived in by its owner, I felt free to come and go as I pleased - a very relaxed venue for a relaxing stay off the tourist track.

    New Yorks' best kept secret...


    This is a beautiful guest house, especially if you are fond of anything with a classic but homely Victorian feel. At $100 a night it is also an absolute bargain, and is conveniently located five minutes from a mainline subway station for getting to central and downtown Manhattan just a few stops away.

    Civilised and Reasonably-Priced


    I have stayed at the Harlem Flophouse several times during the past few years (and plan to stay there again soon). Without exception these visits have been pleasant occasions. The place has no pretentions. It is not meant to be an hotel: it is the owner's home, in which he rents you a clean and comfortable room and offers other human amenities. Of course wood is not artificial fibre and plaster walls are not plastic tiles: gratefully one can avoid the stale air and the stench of industrial cleansers masked with scent that, along with obsequious staff who offer no real service, are the hallmarks of more "upmarket" and "modern" places.

    Great place, great value!


    This is probably the best deal in Manhattan. It's about $100 a night for two people. It's a beautiful old house, which the owner is in the process of renovating. He's done all the bathrooms, and they're beautifully hand tiled. He has put in tin ceilings in most of the house. The rooms are quirky and have wood floors, the beds are comfortable and the bedding is clean. The breakfast, if you care to order it, is delicious.

    Charming refuge


    I loved the Harlem Flophouse. It is a beautiful funky old house with spacious rooms. There was a lot of interesting knick knacks that gave the place a unique and comfortable feeling. The bathroom had a big old cast iron tub. The place is small so when nobody was around we grabbed our chance and soaked in it for an hour.

    The owner was more than friendly and gave us some great tips on local attractions. It reminded me of the kind of small privately owned places that you would find in Paris or Barcelona.

    If you want someplace quiet, unique and with a lot of charm I would highly reccomend it.

    Last Resort


    The Harlem Flophouse is one of those places in NYC that I would recommend only if you could not find anywhere else to stay. Having grown up in NYC I did not have reservations about staying in Harlem however, staying at the Flophouse is another story.
