About Yvette of La Sienna

I come from a family of animal lovers. I am certified in a spay/neuter program and care for the health of stray cats in my neighborhood. I also love nature, flowers and trees.

Why Yvette of La Sienna chose Harlem

When you come here this is not just a place you sleep but feel like a home away from home. This place is a labor of love.

What makes this studio unique

This brownstone was built in the 1920's. A lot of the wood work is original. The doors, the stairs, it is a rare jewel in New York City.

Our second stay at La Sienna! And we will be back!

  • 5 of 5
It was the second time we stayed at La Sienna, and we were very happy to be back. It is not that easy to find something with great value for an acceptable price in NYC. La Sienna is just that! It's cozy, clean, calm and Yvette is a warm and helpful host. La Sienna is close to several subway stations: it's easy to get anywhere in the city. Harlem is a great place to stay as well. In short: I'd recommend La Sienna to anyone looking for an affordable, warm and safe stay in NYC.

Cultural trip to NY with friends

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at La Sienna with a group of twelve friends, so we occupied almost all rooms and we were perfectly able to share the kitchens and bathrooms. Yvette was a wonderful host: she made us feel at home immediately and she helped us tremendously by supplying breakfast stuff. If we visit NY again, we will definitely stay at La Sienna. The rooms are clean and comfortable.The neighbourhood is safe, and the subway station 125th Street (express line A) is only 5 minutes away from La Sienna. Great accommodation for a very reasonable price.

The Perfect Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about La Sienna, this was the PERFECT spot for us!

Yvette was beyond gracious and willing to accommodate any request we had, we couldn't have asked for a better host!

The location was within a block or 2 of any train station or bus stop to get you anywhere in Manhattan and surrounding areas. The area was extremely safe as well, as well as the building itself. The building and studio were very clean and well kept.

We will definitely stay here during future visits! Thank you Yvette for such a wonderful stay!

Great Location, Great Host..

  • 5 of 5
Yvette was a great host, she was knowledgeable about New York and even accommodated us when our travel was delayed... The place was very clean and it was awesome to be in a brownstone in historic Harlem. I would definitely stay there again... Thanks to Yvette for being like a aunt to me and my wife during our stay.

Very Cozy stay

  • 4 of 5
Place was cozy and very close to a lot of places. Was very welcomed by owner and her dogs. Could not enjoy very much of the place since we were mostly out and about. Owner was very informative and recommended many places to visit and EAT! We are foodies so we enjoyed every bit of it.

Excellent Traditional brownstone apartment

  • 5 of 5
La sienna review

Myself and my partner stayed at La Sienna for 8 nights in early September 2014, We booked the apartment in Harlem based on the positive reviews we had read on trip advisor and home and away, the competitive price offered and the amenities on offer, we were not let down. It was amazing !!!

We easily found our way to La Sienna from the subway station on 125th street, a short walk to the apartment in what we found a safe neighbourhood. On arrival we were greeted by a smiling host, Yvette. We were swiftly showed to our good sized apartment and giving a quick run down by the host on restaurants, shopping and transport links within the area of Harlem and that of Manhatten. The area around 123rd street has lots to offer in way of shops, restaurants, bars and transport links. Walking back to the apartment at night was no problem either we both felt safe, although sticking to busier streets, as with any area, would be recommended.

The apartment itself was very well presented with everything you would expect to find to make it a home from home. Well stocked kitchen with all equipment needed including a large selection of tea bags of different flavours and basic food ingredients left by previous guests which came in handy. The tea selection, provided by the host herself, was a lovely little touch to feel welcome. The oven, microwave, kettle and fridge were all used everyday, staying here definitely saved us a few dollars in being able to prepare our own food when needed. There were lots of traditional features of the apartment such as the window frames, coving, flooring and bedding which were what we wanted to feel the whole brownstone apartment ambience. The bed was very comfortable which helped after a long day with many miles of walking.

Yvette was so friendly and welcoming towards us. Additionally, she had some lovely pets who we managed to have a few cuddles off on occasion in the communal hallway.

We have absolutely no negatives about La Sienna, and if we were to return to New York we would certainly choose to stay in this delightful and charming apartment again.
