Sankofa Guest Apartment Reviews

Best Stay in Manhattan

We have rented numerous apartments in Manhattan in the past few years and this apartment was the best by far. Edith and Norma are excellent hosts who will do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable. We especially enjoyed the complimentary amenities that were provided on arrival as well as the immaculate condition of the apartment. It is well situated to all public transportation and there are excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. For those who want to save some money and eat some meals in the apartment, there is a very large supermarket just 3 blocks away. We will definitely try and stay at Sankofa for our next visit. Our only hope is that it will be available!!!

Guestbook Comment

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.

A Great Time

We were looking for a place to stay that offered close transport to the inner city and good restaurants, with the option to also cook for ourselves after being on the road for 6 weeks. Edith and Norma’s apartment delivered all our expectations in a five star setting. We were made to feel very welcome after a long journey, we could not fault our hosts or the accommodation. Bus or subway are only a short walk away, our week metro card was the key to NYC. I would highly recommend this property to our family and friends, or to those of you who are contemplating a trip to this marvelous city.
