Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

The dark-wood interior, moody lighting and lilting jazz music make musician Rene Calvo’s Harlem inn feel more like a 1930s speakeasy than a 21st-century B&B. The airy suites, named for Harlem Renaissance figures such as Chester Himes and Cozy Cole, have restored tin ceilings, a quirky mix of junk-store furnishings and period knick-knacks, and working sinks in original antique cabinets. There are just two suites per floor; each pair shares a bathroom. Rooms: 4.
