A West Harlem prewar building made stylish and modern. Wonderfully clean with super high ceilings and great light. The bedroom is relaxing, has AC/heat, and a comfortable bed that guests love. Enjoy the sleek bathroom with rain shower head, rooftop views, and original artwork. The area is peaceful with lots to discover—you’ll find bodegas, a wine shop, restaurants, and shops all nearby. The subway is just a few streets down, making it easy to get downtown in just 15 min. More details below!

The space
Stylish and modern, super high ceilings, and wonderfully clean.

The bedroom is extremely relaxing, with its own AC and heat, a comfortable bed that guests love, and nice clean linens and towels. The whole building is very quiet and you’ll feel removed from the chaos of the city for some peace and plenty of privacy. Additionally the space offers guests a fully equipped kitchen, rooftop with views, and reliable wifi. You’ll also love the sleek and modern bathroom, with great natural light and a rain shower head.

A peaceful, safe neighborhood with plenty to discover. Enjoy the beautiful St. Nicholas Park across the street—a reliquary for the historic home of Hamilton. You’ll find supermarkets, bodegas/deli’s, a wine shop, unique restaurants, little shops, and a cinema all within reach of this excellent neighborhood. A quick walk to the subway, just a few streets down, makes it easy to get downtown in around 15 minutes via the express train.

The apartment is a 5th floor walk up. No elevator, so please be prepared for the climb. I am happy to coordinate with you to assist in bringing up your bags. The overwhelming majority of guests find the hike worth it.

Guest access
Guests will enjoy a quiet and private bedroom which sleeps two—the perfect apartment for a couple exploring the city. Guests have access to the living room which features an HDTV loaded with Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Amazon Prime, and more. The kitchen is fully equipped for guests to cook their own meals.

Other things to note
(This listing is currently for the entire apartment and I will not be sharing the space as usual)

This listing is for a private room in a two bedroom apartment. Your host Matt will share the space with you and stay in his own private room on the other end of the apartment.

This apartment is located in uptown Manhattan, in the neighborhood of West Harlem. While it is well connected to midtown and downtown via the express trains just a few streets away, it is not within walking distance of those areas.

Occasionally, guests will require a late check out. I'm happy to accommodate when possible. Please reach out so that we can look into this for you.

Welcome to Harlem! The neighborhood is much quieter than downtown locations but is still active at all hours with plenty of bars and restaurants in the area. You can rest assured in this safe area across from a quiet park and college campus. The area is home to many students and has a number of unique restaurants with great ambience. Explore this area with so much history. Alexander Hamilton's house sits preserved in the park just across the street and the famed Apollo Theater is just a few streets down.

Im happy to allow privacy and offer you a more independent stay. But I'm also very friendly and social and would love to enjoy some time with you! I am pretty good at intuitively adapting to whatever your expectations may be. I work 10AM to 6PM during the week and am usually around in the evenings and on the weekends.
