Really enjoyed our stay. Yvette is lovely, knows all about the neighbourhood. 5 minute walk to subway. Food outlets and wholefoods market a few blocks away. Laundrette in the next block. Lovely warm, clean quiet apartment. Very comfy bed. Plenty big enough for two. Wifi was free and never failed us. Would recommend La Sienna to anyone.

Great spot for a quick fall visit to NYC

  • 5 of 5

Yvette was great! She was very accommodating and gave us the inside scoop on her city. The location was perfect for our short visit. We didn't wind up taking advantage of the kitchen facilities, but it was nice to have the option. Thanks for a great visit Yvette:)

Amazing stay and just what we needed !

  • 5 of 5

First time using Home Away and I was so impressed with this place ! My friend and I had a birthday trip to NYC and we chose this place because it had so many great reviews and I’m adding another one! It was a nice studio and had everything we needed and more. Yvette greeted us and even gave us a list of places she recommended to eat, one night she even brought us treats from her favorite bakery and they were delicious ! Like a 5-6 min walk to the subway and quiet neighborhood . Def would stay here again and again ! THANK YOU Yvette !

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying the listing was accurate regarding the amenities, location, and layout of our suite. However, it was also much more than described! It is definitely a home away from home. With our desire tea and coffee of several varieties was available in our room along with an abundance of cooking and dining ware. We began our stay with a nice drink, sitting at a chess table created by Yvette and over looking the beautiful backyard garden. The room was very neat and there was always a home touch behind every door or cabinet in our suite. The bed was extremely comfortable and between the closet, coat hangers, and bed side dresser we had plenty of room for a weeks worth of stuff for two people. Yvette was an amazing host and gave us several recommendations of places to eat, one grille we went to immediately for a cheaper yet amazing lunch meal. The location is a short walk to the station with a nearby police station as well, if looking for further safety. We had easy access to and form our room and felt as if we were living like locals. While I believe other people were staying within the brownstone we never heard much noise from anyone and felt right at "home". Yvette is very accommodating and is very easy to speak with about anything. We stayed for a week in her suite and she extended kind service to us even after "check-out". Harlem is a nice pace away from midtown and such and if we (my boyfriend & I) come back to the city we will definitely try to stay here again. Additionally, visit the Apollo theatre, it is just a block or so away and we had a great time. I HIGHLY recommend staying here if you are looking for a slower paced home away from home feel! Thank you for everything Yvette!
