About the Homestay
Although I live in the apartment as well, I like my guests to have their own privacy but I am always on hand to help or provide advice. This is a perfect place for those visiting Columbia University, only 10 minutes walking away from the house.
My apartment is a classic Harlem apartment.It is very charming, full of lovely decorations and very elegant.
We walk and use public transportation to go everywhere, the whole network is very well connected. We are very close to public transport links and around from a restaurant row on Frederick Douglas Boulevard. Grocery stores, banks, the post office, playgrounds, the library and public schools are all close by.
Times Square and Bryant Park only 10 minutes away by train and La Guardia airport only 20 minutes.
✓ KITCHEN: only long terms guests will be allowed to cook previous arrangements. Otherwise, they can use the kitchen for breakfast and microwave.
◘ Payment Method: Please note that we require our guests to pay 100% of the booking total to us in advance of the booking to hold your room (on top of the 15% service fee is paid to Homestay.com)
Cancellation Policy: We ask our guests to give us at least 7 days’ notice of any cancellation. Any cancellation later than this will not be refunded.”

Taous is very friendly and made me feel at home. The apartment is well located, near public transport and central park and easy to get to any area. It's an interesting area and relaxed too, good places to go out nearby also. Good, clean room and all amenities good. Thanks Taous.
Just a perfect solution. Reasons: location - only 3 streets far from Central Park (North), 6 Subway stations served by different Lines that you can reach in 5-15min walking and several bus stops (M2 stop just in front of the house: ideal
to come back at night); cleaness (!!); hospitality: you'll find a clean shower towel, little shower and shampoo gels, umbrella (I hope you won't need it... I did!), free wifi, tea-coffe-patries for breakfast but you can buy what you want in the markets close to the house and use the fridge.Taous is always available on call or for a tea at home when she doesn't work to give you precious advices to enjoy the best NYC. She loves her guests socialize, if you want of corse, that can be really cool! No doubts. I reccomend it and I'll choose it again, for sure.
I had a very pleasant stay, Taous has been so helpful and welcoming ! The flat is well located, connected to public transport either subways or buses and it is a few blocks from Central Park (runners get ready!).
Taous is the most generous & personable hostess. Her centrally located flat is immaculate & quiet.
I will certainly stay with her on my next visit to NYC
Taous is really nice and friendly. She males you feel like home. The apartment is big and clean, with very good situation barely 20 min to Time Square. We have had a great time in NY. Thanks for all!
