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

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.

Great Place in Harlem. Very Close to Subway. Very Convenient to Everything NYC has to offer!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here and it was perfect. We stayed for 8 nights and it was exactly what we were looking for. It is very close to the subway with access to the ABCD Express trains that are 2 blocks away. You can get to Times Square in 10 Minutes and it takes about 30-45 minutes to get to lower Manhattan (VERY CONVENIENT)! We didn't spend much time in Harlem. All I can say is that we felt safe even at 1am in the morning (there is a police station a block away so that helps too). The apartment was very clean and Yvette (who is the host and owner of the unit) was responsive to whatever we needed. There are 4 other rooms in the building who all rent from Yvette on a daily/weekly basis (the top floor has 3 rooms that all share a bathroom and kitchen and there is a room next to the one we stayed in and it had its own bathroom and kitchen). We never had any contact with these people because we had our own space. She lives downstairs and was there to help but also gave us plenty of space. The shower has a shower curtain and no glass now (no big deal), everything else about the place is depicted in the pictures. The room is nice and spacious and very clean. There is a good pizza place called Custom Pizza that is a half a block away and a 24 hour deli across from that. We really liked the Harlem Shake (2 blocks away) which had GREAT Jerk Chicken and Jerk Fries (if you like that type of thing). Overall this was a great alternative to the hotels we could have stayed at and was much less expensive.

Wish I found this place sooner!

My husband and I stayed in the studio apartment during Columbia University graduation week. It was well appointed and very clean and within walking distance from campus. The neighborhood was nice. We took some evening walks. The host was very welcoming and available at any hour if we needed her. For the 4 years that our daughter was a student at the university, this was the best accommodations we have had. In fact, when we visit New York again, we will stay here.

beautiful brownstone home

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at La Sienna on many occasions over the years - in both of the studio apartments as well as a bedroom on the top floor. I love that it is a clean and comfortable homely option in a neighbourhood that is safe and transforming each time I visit. The owner is a gracious hostess and is concerned that all of her guests are comfortable and well cared for during their stay. The units, rooms and shared bathrooms are all very clean and all maintain the charm of the historic nature of the building. Mass transit is close by with a major subway station less than a three block walk. There is a bus that goes straight to La Guardia airport for the price of a bus ticket and about a 25 minute ride. Central and downtown Manhattan are easily accessible and the north end of Central Park is a short walk away. It is easy to find local delis and grocery stores to buy supplies and there are many options for eating out. I really do consider La Sienna my home away from home and look forward to my next visit.
