“Best B&B ever”
“Best B&amp;B ever”
Me and my 80-year old Mom picked this wonderful B&B for our 6-nights stay
in October 2011. We could not have picked a better place!
Every nice word you read about this place on Tripadvisor is correct - this
is a true gem in New York!
The hosts Vasili and Dimitri are the simply the best B&B hosts you can imagine. They are so sweet, thoughtful and attentive to their guests needs. They have lived in New York for many years and happily shares tips and information about restaurants, sightseeing, how to get around, shopping - whatever!
We stayed in the Sage suite on the second floor, my Mom in the queen size bed and me in
the sofabed. We were both equally comfortable.
The room is large, by New York standards I would say huge, and very nicely decorated.
There is a roomy bathroom, with bathtub.
The whole house is wonderfully decorated. Dimitri loves antiques, and it shows.
I got a flash-back in my head, from my backpacking days long time ago, when I used to stay at simple guesthouses around world, meeting people from all over.
This B&B is like a backpacking-deluxe-place for grown-ups.
There is always coffee, tea,
We really enjoyed staying in Harlem and always felt completely safe, also at night. The area where Mount Morris House is located is very quiet. Like others have said before, it is fast and easy to go downtown. We took the bus a few times on 5th Ave all the way down, alongside Central Park. It is a nice ride, but the underground is faster.
We were surprised that people were so friendly,
as soon as we entered the bus, or underground train, no matter how full, someone would always offer my Mom their seat.
We totally loved Mount Morris House, and I would not even consider staying anywhere else on the next trip.
Thank you Dimitri & Vasili for making our stay so special!
