Thr room was comfortable and had a lot of space. It was quite clean too. The house is located 5 minutes from the subway and there is a great cafe around the corner (perfect for breakfast). I would recommend if you dont want to hang out at the room all day. Thanks for having us

Spent 3 nights at Efuru. Excellent location close to restaurants,shops and subway. Apartment met all our needs and was neat and clean with a small outdoor area which was a bonus. Lydia and Jun were very helpful with our enquiries concerning Harlem. A very pleasant stay and would recommend.

For the same money as you'd pay for a dorm in a hostel you get a very spacious, clean and secure private room. Didn't encounter "Lydia" on our stay but the gentleman "Jun" was really friendly and made us feel right at home. He'd bend over backwards to ensure you enjoy your stay.

The guest house is alright but the owner Lydia completely ruins it. She is obsessed by money. Coming from abroad, I had reserved online and was given a "Total price". After a night's stay the guy who runs the place told me there was a 14 or so % surcharge for tax. I asked to speak to Lydia the owner... More

Stayed for a few nights at Efuru while attending a wedding in NY. Owners Lydia and Jun were very accomodating, the house was quiet and secure and the location was fantastic, only a short distance from Central Park and the 2/3 Lines. There was an issue with the air conditioning in my room and Lydia and Jun were extremely understanding... More

Staying in Harlem

Neighborhood Profile
Harlem
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighborhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
