Such an overall great experience!
Stayed here while visiting family in the neighborhood. Exceptional experience! We hosted a family dinner for 5 in the apartment and couldn't have been happier with the setting. The hospitality of the owners was outstanding! The location provides easy access to two major subway lines downtown and bus service to the upper West side. We traveled all over the city with ease, and looked forward to coming "home" to the apartment. Comfortable bed and the bedroom facing an interior courtyard was quiet. Granted it was winter and we left the windows closed, but what struck me was that the first sounds I heard upon awakening were bird calls. Highly recommend!
Exotic oasis away from the madding crowds
There's a reason this apartment has all 4 and 5 star reviews! Spotlessly clean, Thoughtfully appointed with all the conveniences you need in a home away from home (including one of the the most comfortable beds I've slept in) and beautifully decorated with authentic African artifacts, it was a pleasure to return to this oasis every night after a full day of exploring fabulous NYC. The location is handy to the subway, and the bus to 5th Ave is close by too. Harlem is a fascinating area to explore too. Edith and Norma are welcoming and accommodating hosts. (Aussie guests should note they love Tim Tams)! Would recommend this place in a heartbeat and would definitely stay again!!!
Amazing time in Harlem
There is so much to say about this apartment. The location is fantastic for heading downtown into Manhattan and seeing the wonderful sights. However Harlem is also lovely, by the end of the week I felt like a native New Yorker. All the previous reviews are spot on and it’s a lovely haven to come back to after a busy day out. We enjoyed the comfort of the apartment which is really high end, admiring the beautiful ornaments and feeling so comfortable in it we did not want to leave. Edith and Norma were wonderful and really thought about us. There was a thoughtful gift voucher for the nearby cafe, left for us, as well as wine, beer and soft drinks and the beautiful fresh croissants and coffee were a real treat. If you stay here you must try and get to the gospel church around the corner as well as the Paris Blues bar which are on your doorstep. A truly wonderful first time in New York and there is no better place to stay than at the Sankofa Guest Apartment in Harlem. It was a truly wonderful Christmas, thanks to the both of them allowing us to rent out this apartment. We will definitely return to stay here and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Love and light Edith and Norma. Best wishes for 2018.
After using VRBO for many years, I have finally found a place that provided absolutely everything I was looking for. Edith and Norma have thought of every detail and provided every amenity you could want. They provided a walk through with a thorough explanation of all appliances and devices, the kitchen was well supplied, the maps and neighborhood literature was immensely helpful, and the location and availability of public transport was perfect. I'll be back.
Beautiful apartment with everything you need.
I stayed here in 2011 and now in 2017. I would come back tomorrow if Australia wasn't so far away! The location excellent. The apartment itself is an oasis from the energy of Times Square. Coming back at night to wide streets, divine brownstones and the comfort of this apartment gives you energy to tackle the crowds in midtown the next day. The apartment has every creature comfort including washer and dryer. We arrived late (10.30) and Edith and Norma arranged a young man to carry our bags up to the top floor. As they have written there is no elevator. A nice bottle of red wine and cashews were waiting for us. With croissants and jam for breakfast. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to just enjoy the apartment. 5 days not enough. Thank you again Edith and Norma for providing this beautifully decorated apartment to rest ones weary bones.
I will return! Very fine place in Harlem!
Clean, quiet, fabulously decorated. Nice ladies.
