I can't say enough good things about the Harlem Hideaway. Dennis, the owner, has put together a very clean, comfortable, well decorated and safe place. The very modern but historic brownstone draws off of the musical roots of Harlem and is a home with everything you could possibly want in an amazing true to style NYC neighborhood. Dennis greeted us upon our arrival and gave us everything we needed including his personal cell phone to contact him with any needs or questions in which he promptly responds. Dennis gave us a full rundown of the neighborhood and the best places to go and eat and all of them were spot on. A binder full of ideas of everything Harlem was available inside which included comments from previous guests. We loved the neighborhood so much that we spent most of our time exploring the many things Harlem has to offer. The 2 or 3 train is an express ride to manhattan and is within a few short blocks of the Harlem Hideaway. A show at the legendary Apollo theatre is a must! We have visited NYC several times and will NEVER stay anywhere else!
