Not pictured: this twin bed pulls out into a KING. It's like wall to wall bed, but it's nice. Push it in for the space, pull it out at bedtime.Or, if you're working while you're here, we can leave the desk out of you. (this is how we use the room when we don't have guests

A private bedroom available for rent in Harlem. The bed is a twin, that pulls out into a king. Perfect for a solo traveller, w/ the option of a desk, works for a couple if you pull the bed out.
The fun of this room is our collection of VHS and DVDs! We have a tons of excellent movies and cult classics.
While the bed pulls out, we recommend leaving it folded during the day; when extended its almost wall to wall bed. Because of this, we only recommend the space for couples for shorter stays.

The space

A cozy, family style apartment, with fun decor in a relaxed quiet neighborhood. Conveniently located equidistant from the A, C, B, D, 2, and 3 trains as well as multiple bus lines and quite close to Metro North.
We're on the fifth floor (there is no elevator) with a lovely view downtown (you can just barely see the Empire State Building)

Guest access

In the room there is a small drawer unit for storage, an assortment of toiletries (take whatever you need), and the already mentioned movies and TV for you to use. In the common areas: you're welcome to use the kitchen and store things in the fridge (within reason). You're also welcome to use the living room if you'd like. And, of course, you can use our wi-fi.

This room, when not an airbnb, is our study/office. I have a desk that attaches to the wall that I typically remove when guests are staying. If you'd like the work space, we can leave it up and the leave the desk chair. But in that case, know you'd be unfolding and refolding the daybed, as there isn't enough space to use the desk and have the daybed unfolded.

Interaction with guests

We all work full time, so we won't be cramping your style during your stay; but, all the roommates are friendly and happy to give directions or answer questions about the neighborhood.

Other things to note

There is a cat, but you'll likely never see her, she tends to hide when guests are around. (and if you have allergies, let us know! We can't completely eliminate allergens, of course. But, we'll make sure to deep clean the common areas and keep the cat in a bedroom during your stay)
In the summer, we have a large air conditioner in the common areas, and a fan in the bedroom, to help you stay cool. There is no AC in the bedroom, but the AC in the common areas is quite powerful and can help cool the bedroom if you leave your door open during the day.

Was glad to stay at Kati's place. There's a small cozy room and I've seen couple VHS movies from 90s on old school small tv!)))) there's no a/c in the room but couple of vents. So it's suitable because when you're tourist in NYC you need only bed and shower, you'll have much to do outdoors!
