WONDERFUL stay. Ettice's quaint home is located in West Harlem. Very convenient metro stops. Tasteful restaurants and shopping. Ettice is a very hospitable host, helpful, nice, fun, and quiet. She even recycles and composts! Very affordable also.

It's a nice room in a quiet area where energy is good. It is really recommended to stay there a longer time. From there you can go either way with the subway. I had a good time.

I stayed about 40 days at Ettice's place. The room has a comfortable bed and the house is peaceful. The summer months are always incredibly hot in NY, but it was pleased there was a fan in the room. It's easy to reach downtown Manhattan by public transport.

Ettice is a great person and her place is really cool! She was very nice and welcoming when my girlfriend came to stay with me for a couple of days. We will always remember her 'Welcome' sign and flowers she got for when she was arriving - super sweet! The place itself is very nice. There's lots of space, the building is a historic one with lots of cool features. The kitchen is well-equipped, so is the bathroom. The only slight complaint I might have is the lack of A/C in the room. Ettice got me a fan (which was awesome!) to help with that on some hot nights and while it was better, it's still not enough during the NYC summer heatwaves.

Ettice is a super human being, NY's warmest welcome!! I arrived from the airport very late with a tonne of baggage - Ettice waited up and we had a great chat over fresh eggnog and peanut brittle :-) The room is lovely and big, the apartment homely, in a quiet street of row houses near great Harlem Restaurants. Thank you Ettice, for such a great welcome to this city!
