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 Harlem, Washington Heights, 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 two blocks away including over 20 city buses and four lines of private buses into the city.
Room is furnished with a queen 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 full private bath, free wifi, full kitchen access and light breakfast food items to get you started on your day. Specifically coffee, tea, cereal, toast and preserves are provided.
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
* We provide breakfast food items and you can prepare your own breakfast. Specifically coffee, tea, cereal, toast and preserves are provided. Please carefully wash, dry and put away your dishes. Breakfast items are for breakfast only, not for late night snacks or other meals. Please purchase your own snacks.
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 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 can help you coordinate luggage storage in Manhattan if needed.

We stayed a month at Maria&Jay's flat.The Room is nice,clean, comfortable place and within 10 minutes commute to Manhattan with the bus which is very near to the flat.Maria and Jay are friendly and easy to get along with people.they invited us to watch Superbowl with them and have dinner with them.Maria also always keep in contact if we needed anything also when weather was not good.we had a positive experience in their flat and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone or go there again ourselves!once again, Thanks a lot:)
Clean, small, close. You get all you need when you are looking for an affordable accomodation outside of pricy Manhatten. Public bus and the privat spanish bus company is just a 2 minute walk away and will bring you for $3 straight to the bus terminal next to Times Square (aprox 15 min drive).
We had the room with privat bathroom which was perfectly clean and had a cosy bed. Kitchen is well maintained and comlementary brekkie was included too, gear for anyone who wants to play Chef is there too :-)
We totally enjoyed our stay.
it is a amazing and cozy room! The living room is quite clean and comfort, and the host is quite nice and helpful! The location is nearby Manhattan which is very convinence. It is unbelievable for this price! I really wish to meet Maria again and hope to stay in the fantasitic room! Thanks Maria!
Room was clean and very nice, same as on photos. Thank you for everything. We will recommend to our friends. So far best airbnb host.
Marie's place is nice and clean. We enjoyed the stay. It is convenient to Manhattan using the chicken bus. I especially like the central A/C. Marie also has clear information sheet to let us know where to go and what to do.
This is certainly a place i will go back to !
very smooth arrangement, you find what you expect and the appartment was confortable, clean, spacy, and very well connected to Mid Town as promised.
Thanks Maria !
The appartment was great! It was clean and big and we had breakfast almost every morning. To bad we didn't get to meet Maria, but if we will come back to NYC we will definetly go to Maria's appartment!
We had a perfect stay. Maria was always courteous and helpful. The Apt is very tasteful furnished and clean. There is nothing to complain about. The bus takes you in 15 mins to Port Authority. Absolutely recommendable!
I traveled all the way to NYC from Montreal with my wife and my mother in law. and we really enjoyed our stay at Maria's place. we booked a room with a private bathroom. The room was really clean and nice and it was also big enough to share with 3 adults.
My mother in law was satisfied with the breakfast every morning; many things were prepared with fresh food for us each day.
we are so grateful for everything to Maria.
I hope you have a wonderful time there, too!
It has been our second stay at one of Marias places. She has a wonderful taste to decorate the rooms so international travelers feel comfortable right away.
This time, we spent 5 days of our honeymoon in NYC. We decided to go with airbnb and Maria because the comfort of being treated with a great room and a nice breakfast and at the same time to have the freedom of going out or staying home for dinner is perfect for us. The large room with ensuite bathroom gave us privacy but we had the feeling of having booked a suite since we could freely use the whole apartment.
Chicken buses still work great. This house is very close (only two blocks) to bus station. The neighborhood offers everything needed. Thanks Maria!
