Check In
  • My Mum stayed for a week. The place is spacious, nice and in a good location. Very convenient and good value!

  • My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at Opal's place! The apartment was just as the pictures detailed, very clean and roomy. The location in HARLEM was awesome! The wonderful places to eat and live entertainment was extraordinary and like no other I have experienced. The Red Rooster for dinner/drinks and Amy Ruth's for some good home cooking are musts while taking in the Harlem culture. Transportation was so easy (subway just a few blocks away). I'd definitely recommend Opal's boutique 1 bedroom to all looking for the cool, relaxing experience of Harlem and just minutes from all the Manhattan excitement.

  • We stayed in Opal's apartment for a week and we were very well. The apartment is spacious (for 2 person) and it's located in a quiet area. All the pieces of furniture are not very new but however comfortable.
    Nearby there are many excellent restaurants (traditional cuisine of Harlem) and a well stocked supermarket.
    We recommend it because Opal was very kind, helpful and she gave us lots of useful information. In addition we suggest it because it's located in a great area that allows you to reach all districts in a short time by the close subway.

  • Opal's place is just awesome - tons of space, really great location near tons of cool places to go out. It had been ages since I spent time up in Harlem and my only regret is that I did not have more time to explore the neighborhood! Opal was a pleasure to deal with and I would definitely come back!

  • It was for my son and me the first time traveling with Airbnb (from Europe) and we have had a wonderful first experience, thanks to Opal and her nice apartment.

    Both Opal and her husband, Dwight, are gracious hosts. Because they live downstairs, it’s easy to ask them for help if you have any problems (which we didn’t have).

    The apartment is spacious, clean and cosy furnished, just like the pictures.
    From the bedroom, you look out on a green garden and you wake up by the delightful singing of birds. The bathroom is also good with a nice shower. The kitchen contains everything you need for cooking.

    The apartment is located in a quite area, just two blocks away from the subway station. It only takes the express-train less than 5 minutes to arrive in central Manhattan.
    The neighbourhood is safe and peaceful, also late in the evening.

    Just a few blocks away are the famous Apollo Theater, 125th street with a lot of stores and the well-known local soul-food restaurants Sylvia’s and Red Rooster.

    We definitely recommend the place to everyone who wants to stay in a spacious apartment, in a pleasant neighbourhood with everything you need just around the corner and near down town NY.

  • My 5-night stay at Opal's was just I needed. I was attending a workshop at Columbia University, and the location could have not been more convenient. Opal was a wonderful host. She came to meet us in person to hand in the keys on the first day, and she was very prompt in replying to my emails when I needed anything. The apartment was spacious, well-furnished, clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend Opal's place to anyone!

  • Great place!

  • Opal's apartment is confortable and nice and the location is excellent both in terms of neighbouring and for its closeness to central city.
    The apartment was clean enough and in general good conditions.
    We only experienced a problem with the fridge which was very noisy and disturbing and we were forced to turn it off to sleep. Opal and her housband have tried to fix it but for the time we were in the apartment the problem persisted.
    Also, the kitchen' equipment is a bit too basic and some things are missing (for example the potholders).
    In general terms, we reccomend this partment

  • We had a pleasant stay at Opals Place in Harlem. She was very nice and helped us with every question.
    The apartment is clean, but the bed is small and not very comfortable.
    Everything you need for living is just around the corner, a grocery, a laundromat, and also an express metro station.
    It's nice to stay there for a few days.
