Great Stay in New York

4.2 on December 25, 2013

The Inn is situated just beside the subway and located in the historical significant Sugar Hills in Harlem. Breakfast offered by the Inn was amazing and refreshing! Lawrence and his crew have been most helpful and accomodating during our stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting New York!

Fabulosa experiencia

4.2 on December 14, 2013

La experiencia ha sido gratamente satisfactoria y perfecta. Tanto el Sr.Lawrence como su amigo, fueron excepcionales y encantadores, nos hicieron sentir como en casa. Todo estaba muy limpio, la habitación era enorme, el desayuno fantástico, la casa super acogedora, la cama comodísima y grande, y aunque teníamos baño para compartir, nunca tuvimos que esperar para usarlo, éramos pocos huéspedes y congeniamos todos de maravilla. Las charlas cada día a la hora del desayuno fueron divertidísimas. La ubicación no era en el centro de Manhattan, pero teníamos la parada de metro justo al lado de la casa, con lo cual era muy cómodo, ya que en diez minutos estábamos en el centro de la gran manzana, también había paradas de autobús, pero nosotros optamos por la primera opción. En cuanto al barrio de Harlem, es de lo más tranquilo y seguro, al menos esa zona.Tuvimos la oportunidad de asistir a una misa Gospel, y fue una experiencia preciosa que recordaremos por siempre, y fueron muy atentos y cariñosos con nosotros, hicieron sentirnos uno más. Sin más, nos quedamos con la gran experiencia que hemos tenido y el deseo de regresar muy pronto, ha sido fantástico. Muchísimas gracias y hasta muy pronto!!!! -Beatriz y Juanma-

Home away from Home :)

Been to many places and have missed home at some point except in here. Lawrence and his staff is super friendly, warm and welcoming. Greeted us with a bottle of Champagne (as they found it was our second honeymoon). Very patient and thoroughly informative about everything you ask. No compromise on the morning breakfast and it was generously portioned and very diverse. Location is very convenient as it was few steps away from Subway Station and a Bus Station. No issues what so ever in commute even in freezing cold or a bad weather. Very good price point and far better deal as compared other places out there. We stayed in Private Suit and it was clean and cozy. The entire stay was very memorable especially due to such a wonderful stay at this place. Will surely come back here in future as now we know where to be for the next visit to NY :)

Friendly, clean not far from metro

4.0 on April 25, 2013

We were a group of 10 persons and stayed for 10 days in the suite and enjoyed our stay. It was clean and the inn keeper was very helpful and friendly. The inn was not far from the metro (at 15-20 min from Time Square). Everything exceeded our expectations.

Best B&B In Harlem

3.8 on April 22, 2013

It's hard to find accommodations that exceed your expectations, whether it's a hotel or B&B. I definitely received excellent service and value at Saint Nicholas Inn and it will be my first choice whenever I am back in Harlem. The room was a spotless extra large room with a queen sized bed, television with cable and wifi internet. Even though the bathroom was shared, I don't believe anyone else was staying on the floor I was on and had no trouble using the bathroom or shower when need be. Breakfast was served in the morning, fresh fruit and a croissant on one day, a muffin and fresh fruit the next. The accommodation was quiet and peaceful. The only issue I had didn't come from the B&B itself, but from a nearby building that was playing music late on a Saturday night. I felt safe at the B&B and very much at home walking around Harlem. The train station is less than a five minute walk away or you can be like me and walk about 20/25 minutes to the clothing stores and restaurants like Sylvia's. I would definitely recommend Saint Nicholas Inn. It's a great and affordable place to stay in Manhattan without being in all the hustle and bustle, it's located in a great part of Harlem and if the value and accommodations don't change your mind, just being in an area full of so much amazing history will!

Nice and friendly

A Real Gem (The People) and a great room too

4.4 on October 11, 2012

Sometimes, you find an inn where the hosts just take care of your every need with swift action, knowledge and experience - they know what they are doing - and at the Saint Nicholas Inn, you can have that kind of experience. The rooms are well appointed, clean and exactly what you'd expect, the price is right, but the hosts are what makes the Saint Nicholas special. Worth a stop for the night, just to see how and feel how it's done right in NYC.

A nice & comfortable hostel

We stayed at the Saint Nicholas Inn from the 10/16 to the 20/10 in a double room (1 Queen bed for 2 ppl) and found it fantastic. After travelling almost 24hrs (Australia/Syd to NYC) we were both pretty stuffed, Sharon and her partner (I'm sorry I forget his name) made us feel very welcome and pointed us in the right direction for both food and the Town car situation. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room large and the heating was both adjustable and rapid. There are two delis within 2mins walk from literally the top of the front steps (the furtherst does coffee in the morning, the closest beer at night ;), the subway stop could not be any closer and in a great co-incidence we found out you can walk to Yankee stadium (about 20min), how good is that !! We found the area to be safe and feel safe at all times of the day or night, breakfast is continental and more than enough to get you started, would we stay here again ? You bet, great value and a great way to both meet real people and get into the NYC groove.
