This place does have its charms. Located in an 1890s brownstone, the Harlem Flophouse still feels very much like one's home. Creaky hardwood floors, antique furniture, clawfoot tubs, fireplaces that have probably been out of use for a looong time—these all contribute to the inn's quirky character. The rooms are probably three times the size of what you might find at a boutique hotel in midtown Manhattan, and even the bathroom is unusually large. But somehow, the accommodations still manage to feel very cozy and homey. There aren't really any amenities to speak of: no gym, no complimentary breakfast, not even A/C! That last part, the A/C, might be a deal-breaker for me in the summertime, but otherwise, the Harlem Flophouse is a great place to experience the neighborhood and the cultural history it offers. Staying at this inn means having easy access to tons of great jazz clubs and food options as well.Recommended for:
