There was a work permit attached to the door when I arrived with caused me a bit of concerns. My fears and concerns were immediately alleviated once I entered the establishment. Although there was work material in the foyer, the hotel was very clean and the staff professional and friendly. I loved the theme room atmosphere. I stayed in the Lens (Horne) room. It was beautifully decorated. The bed was very comfortable and I was amazed that the bed linen was ironed (no one does that anymore). I has several visitors and they were very impressed with the establishment and will recommend this business to family and friends, as will I.

I visited Harlem for a business trip and wanted a studio apartment instead of an overpriced hotel. I am so pleased that I found Estudio 129. Ron (the owner) was incredibly helpful, and was very accommodating when I arrived early to drop off my bags. He was also very kind in offering me some information on the neighborhood, which was helpful for a first-time visitor like me.
The apartment itself was very well maintained and clean, and there was way more room than I needed as a single traveler--the room could easily house 4-6 people. It was also awesome in that Ron provides all the basic appliances and kitchen essentials (including a toaster, a microwave, coffee machine, coffee and filters) as well as a computer and printer. There's also excellent WiFi connections, which was important for me as a business traveler. There's also cable TV, access to space heaters (which I never needed even though I visited in January), and a seemingly brand-new full-sized refrigerator and stove.
If you're looking for a great place that is affordable and located in a non-touristy part of Manhatten, I highly recommend Estudio 129.

Would have liked to be greeted by the house keeper herself, rather than her "helper." Building did not have house numbers, difficult to find at night. Enjoyed the wi-fi option, but it kept fading in and out. Need to include milk with cereal for B&B. Need more decor in the welcome & stair ways so that it feels less creepy. Other than that, the place was clean and well kept. Good price for a short stay. Subway just a block down.

I have to say first that the staff would do anything they could to make your stay great. They kept our luggage for us before we could check in so we could sight see. They also kept our luggage for us after check out since our flight wasn't until much later, which allowed us to see many more places than we couldn't have otherwise. The room was very nice, very clean, and had everything we needed. If I ever go back to NY, I will definitely be staying there.
