Guestbook Comment

Review submitted: November 28, 2007   Date of arrival: November 1, 2007

Staying at Sankofa Guest Apartment was a wonderful experience. The apartment is stunningly beautiful and has every amenity a traveller could possibly need or desire, even a footspa. The whole apartment is incredibly attractive and it is a pleasure to simply sit and admire the artwork on the walls and the furniture and finishings within the apartment. Our hostesses, Edith and Norma are incredibly warm and helpful. We feel as if we have made friends. It has added an extra dimension to our first-time New York experience to be able to stay in Harlem and be welcomed with such kindness. Within the apartment you will find NYC guidebooks and other helpful printed information to help you take advantage of your time in New York. The apartment's location is fantastic. Catching public transport is a breeze. We favoured the bus during the day to give us a better idea of the lay of the land. The subway is quick and efficient and is only a few blocks' walk through this safe neighbourhood. We walked day and night through the neighbourhood and felt perfectly comfortable. The bed is extremely comfortable and we enjoyed being able to cook breakfast each morning. Being able to wash and dry our clothes each night also allowed us to pack a little lighter than we would otherwise have been able to do. We would never, ever stay anywhere else on our next visit to Manhattan - Sankofa has it all. Thank you Edith and Norma for our wonderful visit. You and your apartment are true gems.

perfect base for exploring NY

Review submitted: June 11, 2014   Date of arrival: May 1, 2014

My wife and I had a wonderful 2 weeks staying at Sankofa in May 2014, The apartment is very spacious and comfortable and it has all the facilities required by the traveller. It feels like a real home away from home and the African art that adorns the apartment is a real treat. Edith and Norma are the nicest and most helpful hosts you could possibly hope for. Harlem is a vibrant area of Manhattan and we felt comfortable and safe at all times. The neighbourhood near Sankofa is very quiet at night allowing for a good sleep. The apartment is located close to great restaurants and well stocked grocery stores. The bus stop is just around the corner and the subway only around 5 mins walk away. The northern end of Central Park, which has the beautiful Conservatory Gardens, is only a 10 min walk and Morganside Heights and the Hudson River is only 15 mins walk. The world famous Apollo Theater is only 5 blocks away and I was lucky enough to attend a great jazz show there during our stay.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Extraordinary

Review submitted: May 25, 2014   Date of arrival: May 17, 2014

We can only add to the other rave reviews. Edith and Norma are charming, considerate, wonderful hostesses. The apartment is beautiful as well as comfortable. Outstanding African art throughout the apartment adds to its character. The location is great if you want to be up in Harlem or near Columbia University and still have easy access to the rest of the city. You are about a 10 minute walk to the A, B, C, D, 2, and 3 subways and a 15 minute walk to Central Park. There are also a number of excellent restaurants and bars typical of the resurgent area within walking distance. Sankofa is a true gem. We could not recommend it more enthusiastically.
