The Space

Please make sure that you check all my listings under my profile, and if you don't find the dates you're looking for, shoot me an inquiry anyways and I'll do what I can to help you, including recommending other great local hosts. I’m a proud SuperHost with over 600 positive reviews. From our place you'll have very easy transit access to Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Madison Square Garden, Central Park and all the New York attractions.

Don't be put off by this listing being outside of Manhattan. We are closer to Manhattan than staying in many parts of Brooklyn and definitely way closer than staying in Queens/Bronx. Newly decorated private room in three bedroom apartment in Union City, NJ. Union City is on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel and therefore very close (15 min bus ride) to Port Authority/Times Square area.

Neighborhood is very safe and room is at back of house away from street noise. Choice of transportation options including over 20 city buses and four lines of private buses into the city, each only two blocks away.

Room is furnished with a double bed, freshly laundered cotton linens and feather pillows (regular pillows available). Closet with wooden hangers for your clothes. You'll have fresh white towels and a basket of travel toiletries.

Room comes with shared full bath, kitchen access and free wifi.

You can let me know if you need a hair dryer, clothes steamer, iron & ironing board, needle and thread, etc. We have everything you need to make your stay comfortable.

About Transportation: I have received many questions from people who don't believe it possible to be outside of Manhattan and so close to it, yet it's true. Here are some facts about transportation:

1. Apartment is 3 minutes (2 blocks) from the bus stop.
2. The bus is very frequent, I rarely wait for it more than 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the time you won't even wait at all. You will step to the bus stop and a bus will be there.
3. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out.
4-The price of these express buses is $3 onboard, and $2.50 if you buy tickets at ticket window #23 at Port Authority Bus Terminal
5. You won't find these buses timetable or route on the internet, it's a private bus company that runs many lines in and out of Manhattan

Other info:
* We provide breakfast food items and you can prepare your own breakfast. Please carefully wash, dry and put away your dishes.

Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost. There are no taxes or cleaning fees on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.

All the payments are safely made with credit card to AirBnB when booking. They hold the money until the day you check in and will then transfer it to us.

Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through AirBnB. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.

DEPOSIT is for keys and will be refunded by AirBnb once keys are returned.

To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "guggenheim" in your inquiry to me.

Please note that 11am check out strictly enforced - we are happy to help you coordinate luggage storage in Manhattan if needed.

  • I stayed at Marias place for 4 days. It was awesome. My first impression of the area was with mixed feelings, but after 5 minutes you realize it's the best possible place that you can be in NY!!!
    The appartment is amezing huge, you have alot of space everything you need to plan your trips, very clean and extrem quiete. After a day in Manhatten you are so happy to come home to this place.
    The location is perfekt. You reach Times Square in 15 min, have never to wait for a bus because every 2min is one comming and have amazing good restaurants arround you. The first impression is not everytime the right one. If go a little bit arround in the area you will know what I mean.
    Maria is a great host, she lives in a other appartmentbut if you need anything from her she is easy to reach, either via the hoe Wifi or by phone, she gave me a lots of good tips and recommontations, specially when tourist sigth seeing is not your style.
    By the way of you are in NY go to a show, Maria can give you tips for great savings.

    If you want to stay ina relaxed comtable place in NY, Marias is the only choice!

  • Clean and fully equipped house in Union City. Getting nere is extremely easy and convenient. Everything is provided by Maria upon arrival. I didn't meet here but she promptly asked to my email and I had the chance to meet her friendly husband Jay. Maria had to move me from one of her flat to another giving us the same accomodation even closet to bus stop. I reccommend Maria!

    March 2013
  • Brilliant stay. Everything exactly as described. Clean and welcoming. No questions unanswered. As I was travelling alone felt very safe and so comfortable. Met some amazing people from all over the world. Cannot wait to go back next year. Thanks Maris and Jay for making my stay so easy.

    December 2012
  • Clean room and kitchen. During rush hour the time it takes to get to port authority is more like an hour and not 15 min. But all in all recommendable.

    November 2012
  • Nice room in appartment in Hispanic Union City. At first glimpse you might feel a bit out of place. No reason. Good connection to NY -Times Square- through so called chicken busses. Even during rush houres no delay. Room is nice but a bit noisy, comfortable bed and cleam bathroom. You share appartment with two other rooms. Appartment has spacious living and kitchen. Bathroom is shared with one of the two rooms. Contact with Maria is prompt. And the airport service they provide (Newark is within 20 min.) is an usefull service. Good value!

    October 2012
  • Had a great week in New York. The apartment is really 15 minutes away from Times Square and buses come frequently. Brush up on your Spanish though, there is not much English speaking going on in the neighborhood :) The apartment was very clean and well maintained and Maria was very helpful.
