My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary with our first trip to NYC. Efuru Guest House was the perfect home base for our vacation. It is a quick four block walk to the subway and a 12 minute ride to Times Square. We always felt safe in this charming Harlem neighborhood. Lydia, the owner, told us to think of Efuru Guest House as our own NYC apartment. We will return SOON!

Really good and comfortable rooms, clean and big house but being situated in Harlem it was not the best position to visit NYC both because of the distance from the heart of the city and the security felt at nights coming back from the south.
Lydia, the proprietor, was really kind and available so, in general, really recommended!!!

My girlfriend and I spent the first week of November 2009 in New York. We stayed at Efuru Guesthouse where I booked a room bij e-mail. Lydia was from the very beginning very correct in mailing me the requested information. Once arrived we found a cosy house in Harlem and a nice clean bedroom. We arrived at 10.30 PM, so we got the key code from Lydia. Next morning we met Lydia and had a long and very friendly talk with her. She told us a lot about visiting New York and she gave good advices. So we had a lovely stay at Efuru Guesthouse and we surely would recommend this place to other travelers.

We went to NYC for our wedding, 7 days with 18 family members. We occupied the entire second house for ourselves. A great place, recently renovated. Location is just excellent, few steps from the subway. Beds are all new and clean, and airco is available in all rooms. Towels were changed every day. Breakfast gorgeus. Wi-Fi free. And Lydia: a very niceperson, flexible and cooperative. Definitely the right place to stay when in NYC.

A nice spacious clean apartment in a lovely old brownstone in a great part of Harlem. A few lovely places to eat and drink locally i.e between 1 and 3 minutes by foot (Native, Lenox Lounge, Setepani Cafe, Cafe Latte) a couple of great historic venues a few streets away (the Apollo and Minton's) not forgetting you're a short subway ride from the bright lights of middle and lower Manhattan. The neighbourhood had a nice laid back vibe, even after coming back on the subway in the wee small hours after a night out downtown. Harlem's a great atmospheric, historic place to explore and it was nice having a room with a lot more space than what you usually get in NY (plus nice and quiet for sleeping). Recommended if you don't mind being so far uptown (subway runs all night and taxis are always available)
