This was my second visit to Ifé's apartment. I was visiting Columbia university, and it is in the best possible location for this - a 5-minute walk through the park each morning and you're right there. Ifé was a super host, and allowed me to leave my bags at her place beyond checkout time (as my flight wasn't until the evening). I look forward to returning when I'm next in town!

I had a great few days at Ifé's place. The flat was lovely, clean and light and the room was cozy and well-stocked with hot drinks and toiletries. The location was close to the subway and moving around NewYork from there was easy and quick. Thank you, Ifé!

I very much enjoyed staying with Ifé in Harlem. The place is in a very scenic location opposite the park, and with the Summer nights the area was alive - with many restaurants and bars close by. As well as Central Park, which was very convenient being only two blocks away. The subway is also within 5mins walk and the B/C trains are regular and get you all around the city. It's also great to have a fridge / amenities in the room, as well as a range of toiletries which take away the hassle of packing small bottles/buying when there.

I had a great stay - just in NY for a couple of nights. Location was lovely - just by the park, a quiet street but yards from buzz, subway, restaurants. Ife made it all very easy. Thanks!

I had a great short stay at Ifé's apartment. The apartment is really nicely decorated, and the living room in particular is a nice place to relax or hang out with Ifé's cat Farai (who is very friendly!). It has a lovely view over Morningside Park, and is well located (especially for Columbia University and Central Park). Highly recommended!

I had a great time staying here and loved the location and apartment. Ife made me welcome without fuss or interference, she is a relaxed and generous host and I hope to return.
