THIS WAS NOT A BED AND BREAKFASTPosted Nov 4, 2015 on Orbitz
When I got there I was met by a friendly end keeper who greeted us, showed us our room and all the so called amenities told me i could park on the street then gave us our keys, the room was nice but there was hardly any hot water (we had to heat up the water on the stove via a kettle The food was cheap and old and the parking well i got a ticket for parking on the street and they never told me i had to move my car on school days by 7 am. If you are looking for a decent place to stay the room is great but from there its all down hill and NOT A BED AND BREAKFAST Ive had a better one at an ECNO LODGE

Just like homePosted Sep 14, 2015 on HotelClub
Wonderful comfortable room. I arrived late after a delayed flight and was pleasantly surprised to find food, milk, and juice waiting for me. Steps to the subway and a beautiful park next door. I have already recommended it to all of my friends & family. The only caution is the stair climbing required.

Two nights in Allies RoomPosted Dec 6, 2014 on Hotels
Two night stay for appointments at NY Presbyterian Hospital. Allies is very convenient to the subway at 135th and St. Nicholas Ave (~1 block walk). We stayed in "Allies Room" which was very nice, clean, updated. Only problem was that it is on the 3rd floor so had two long staircases to get to it. Continental breakfast in the room was simple but very fresh. Overall a good stay.

Once We Knew The Ropes...Posted Nov 9, 2014 on Hotels
This B and B has the potential to be a great place to stay. Great features are subway is close only 1 street away and takes you to key locations without transfers. Neighbourhood is quaint. Separate bedroom in suite on second floor was great for privacy and two other pull out couches in livingroom for 2-3 othes. Kitchen stocked with basic breakfast items: juice, milk, fruit, cream cheese, fresh bagels. Some improvements: some lamps in the livingroom as only light is the big overhead light with energy saving bulbs which can be hard in the eyes. No cork screw-bring your own. No place to hang towels-hooks in bathroom on wall would be helpful for 4 people. No place for coats-hooks on hall might be nice. The locks! There are 5 locks. Reminder: locking is to the right unlocking to the left. These were hard to navigate each time-hopefully door downstairs is fixed-ask. The owner was available by text and sent Earl to help when we had the wrong internet codes. When checking in, get them to show your the locks (try them yourself), make sure the internet works, and that you are shown extra towels and linins. It would be nice if the welcome book had more information as to maps, how to get to subways, restaurants and maps as well as the neighbourhood. Overall, now that we know what to expect, we'd stay there again if it had the lamps and hooks for towels. Its a cute brownstone, safe, easy.

Good alternative to downtown hotelsPosted Sep 30, 2014 on Orbitz
A bit out of the way in Harlem, but very pleasant. Two story walk-up for my room. Probably a good location for checking out Harlem, although that was not why I was there.

spotless, well maintained, convenient to subwayPosted Apr 20, 2014 on Hotels
perfect for a 17 year old and her parents in NYC to see some shows. % min walk to train and ~20 min subway to Time Square. Never felt unsafe going to from train. Able to find street parking easily but may be more difficult if not during school vaca as across from a school. Spotless room w queen bed and day/bed trundle. Private bath, huge closet, quiet. Breakfast was bagel thins, crm cheese, kasha, oranges, pears, blueberries, OJ, Milk and bottled water provided. Keurig and kettle w asst teas and coffees. 3rd floor of brownstone - perfect for the independent traveler - not for someone looking for room service. Would definitely go again and recommend to friends.

Close to B,C and 1, 2, 3 TrainsPosted Nov 20, 2013 on Hotels
It was excellent. The location of the B&B is convenient to the B and C trains as well as the 1,2, and 3 trains. I was there to do research at the Schomburg Center for Black Culture and it was only a ten minute walk away. The room itself was quite comfortable and had free wireless. It's proximity to City College is also a plus, as you have St. Nicholas Park nearby. The neighborhood was nice--there was a Subway, Duane Reade, and IHOP within walking distance. Also, just a train stop away are very nice restaurants. I thoroughly recommend this B&B.

A bit of "bait and switch" -- inaccurate websitePosted Jun 25, 2013 on Hotels
Allies B&B was a fine and quiet place to stay. Finding parking was not easy, but parking is always tough in NYC. Easy access to subway. My biggest disappointment was with the website which said I would get a special breakfast option (not just the continental option of juice, milk, yogurt, fruit, cereal, etc). I was supposed to get an email with choices a week or two before arriving. Never got the email. When I inquired just a few days before arriving, I was told that the website was wrong (they have since changed it). But they should have honored the promise.
