“Great accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2008

Stayed here with my amazing and totally hot Girlfriend on our first visit to New York. We had the parlour studio, which had our own Private Entrance, Kitchen, Bathroom and Bedroom. The Bed was a good size and very comfortable. The Lodge is just a 5 minute walk from the nearest subway station and a little further to the Northern tip of Central Park.

For the price, I don't believe there is anything better.

My mother and I were over in NYC for a long weekend shopping, well, to find a wedding dress. It was both our first time in NYC and were horrified at the cost of accomodation. I found this house on tripadvisor and it looked great and at a very affordable price. We had one of the studios with everything you needed in it. We were given our own set of key's to come and go as we pleased which was terrific. Lydia, the lady of the house was fantastic, she was so friendly and welcoming. And her house was spotless and very comfortable. We will be going back next summer for a fitting and we will definatly be staying with Lydia!

Hi,
Me and my wife stayed at the efuru guest house in aug 2007 for a week.
This place is the best thing you'll get for your money in Manhattan!!
The guest house manager,Lydia, gave us royal treatment and directons of where to go, where to shop etc'.
The surrounding is very quite and peaceful.
It took us 5 minutes walk to reach the subway.
The room was nice, it has a kitchen with a refrigerator , oven and stoves.Also it has private bathrooms and a tub/shower.
I came with some doubts but left very satisfied.

It was the 3rd time that my friends and I stayed at the Efuru House, being guests of the wonderful owner Lydia. It is a small brownstone house in Harlem, close to the subway and great restaurants. It only takes 15 minutes to get to 42nd. St and the theater district. There are 2 apartments and 2 guest rooms at really decent rates, very clean and accommodating. Harlem is a great area to be, as the restaurants and shops are still afordable and in walking distance. The only place that changed over the last 4 years is the Lenox Lounge, which became very snobby. Have dinner at "The Native" and breakfast at the "Blues Cafe" and you have a perfect stay.

Before my arrival I received a lot of information from the innkeeper, she was also very helpfull when answerring questions after our arrival.

The guest house is located in Harlem about 4 blocks (5 minute walk) from a subway station, the rooms were clean, tidy and equiped as promised.

We had a great stay at this guest house and would not hesitate to book it again! :-)

Hi, we stayed here in June 2006 and we had a really nice stay. Though it is in Harlem, the house is really safe. The room we stayed in was big, clean and nice, we had to share the bathroom with another guest, but it wasn't a problem. Lydia, the owner was very kind to us. We recommend this place. G&D
