Value for the money

4.8 on September 09, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed our 4 day stay at the Cozy Brownstone. We were only there after long days exploring the city. The large hot tub was fantastic for our aching bodies, and the bed was comfortable. The wi-fi worked ok for us. We were able to stream some entertainment to our laptop to relax before going to bed. We chose this B&B because we felt like it would be a good value, and it was!

Family weekend in NYC

4.0 on October 07, 2012

This little room was just perfect as a home base for my family (2 adults, 1 child) as we explored the city for the weekend. Clean and spacious room looks much better in person than in photos here. Hosts were friendly and accommodating. Neighborhood is just lovely, just down the street from park and around the corner from wonderful restaurants, including a great little coffee/breakfast shop. Great value for NYC!

Big room, little money, sexy bathroom

5 on May 29, 2012

I stayed here for a week and I liked it a lot. The room looked a lot better in person and I loved having my own entryway. The wifi went in and out, but I didn't care, I was out on the town and in meetings most of the time. I didn't try the food, but there were so many restaurants and bars close by that I didn't have time to. Overall, the host was nice, stayed out of my way, kept a tidy apartment and kept me happy with many clean towels and pretty sheets.

A Great Find

4.2 on May 08, 2012

This is a spacious and well-appointed basement room with private (albeit somewhat dingy) entrance, comfortable double bed, large en-suite (private) bathroom and ample closet space. The bathroom has both shower and bath, the latter in the form of a jacuzzi with room for two - ideal for unwinding after a day out in NYC! The room and facilities were scrupulously clean, but the lighting was a bit dull. The house is situated in a residential street on the fringes of Harlem, some 10 blocks north of Central Park. There are shops and restaurants on the busy main street just around the corner, and it is a short walk to subway and bus stops providing easy access to downtown Manhattan. We didn't try the house meals, preferring to eat out or buy our own food (small fridge and disposable cutlery are provided). The only drawback was 'technical': weak and unstable wi-fi connection and no in-room mobile phone (T-mobile) signal - irritating given our modern-day reliance on electronic devices. Overall, excellent value for money. [Ignore our rating for 'dining' - we have provided this only because the programme won't accept a review without a rating for each category!]
