Private room and private bathroom in shared new penthouse apartment with elevator, free laundry machine, and complete kitchen. Incredible transportation, only 10-15 Mins from the center of New York City.
***Private bedroom and bathroom in shared apartment***
My apartment is 10 minutes to Times Square Midtown Manhattan. Much closer than Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, or Upper Manhattan. Bus transportation to Times Square is at my building doorstep and runs every 5 minutes 24 hours every day. In regards to city transportation my apartment is in the absolute best location and you will never need to refer to a bus schedule. You can also take the subway (Path Train) or scenic ferry to the city, but it will be a longer trip.
The bed is a deluxe pillow-top queen mattress. The bathroom has a rainfall shower head. Large granite and steel kitchen and sky lighted living room. Dishwasher, gas stove, microwave. There is free wireless internet, free laundry machine. This is a new construction building with an elevator. The apartment is penthouse level and very tranquil.
Only steps from the apartment you will find 4 banks, 6 supermarkets, 24Hr deli, restaurants, dry-cleaner, US post office, and police station. It's only a 10 minute walk to the absolute most incredible skyline view of NYC (especially at night).

Eric's room was exactly as describe which was a real relief. The place was immaculate at my arrival. Eric was not there but His instructions where very precise and easy to follow. Tips given on places to go, transport to catch ( probably would be good if he added some info on taxi companies o price to get to his place as an alternative trasport to the bus or subway).
Eric was very courteous. I felt very safe as a woman travelling on her own..
I recommend people to stay there.
Hi Eric is a great hoster,
He is a very helpful person and provides a lot of info if you need. The room was as in the pic and the area pretty close to the main bus station.
I would reccomand this place!!
Eric War sehr nett und hilfsbereit.Das Appartement ist super schön und ordentlich. würde immer wieder hingehen.
Eric was a great host, made me feel very welcome in his apartment.
The apartment was exactly as described in the advert and the room itself was well afforded, the bed comfortable and ample storage space provided in the wardrobe.
The bathroom was clean, with clean towels etc provided.
The apartment was lovely and warm (visited in winter) and Eric and I shared a number of great chats while eating meals.
As mentioned in the advert and in many reviews, the bus is $3 each way, this will take you to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, where you can link with the Blue Line Subway, or walk 2 blocks to Times Square. As far as I found, there was no other way to get to Manhattan except for the bus, taxi or private vehicle. The bus companies operating out there will not accept the 7 day metro pass, or any other metro pass as far as i am aware.
Eric ist ein sehr netter und freundlicher Gastgeber. Seine Beschreibung waren sehr ausführlich und ich konnte alles ohne Probleme finden. Die Anbindung mit dem Bus an Manhattnn is super, wenn wegen des Verkehrs meist auch etwas länger als 10 Minuten. Aber ich musste nie auf einen Bus warten, weder auf der Hin- noch Rückfahrt. (Zeitraum zwischen 8:00 und 21:00)
Das Zimmer liegt nicht zur Hauptstrasse, ist geräumig und das private Bad ist wunderbar. Da ich geschäftlich in New York war, hätte ich mir einen Tisch und einen Stuhl gewünscht. Einkauf und Restaurants in der nächsten Umgebung ausreichend und gut. Ich werde wiederkommen!
Eric's place was exactly as described. I had no problem getting there following his instructions and everything was clean and comfortable.
Eric was really helpful and nice, we had an amazing time.
I think it was very good price/quality, although it's good to consider that the bus will cost additional 5-6 $ per day per person. Still good price compared to staying in manhattan.
The neibourhood was mostly latin people, a police station is around the corner and we felt completely safe even late at night.
The buses are almost at the door every 3-5 minutes, I never had to wait. One morning it took me around 35 minutes to get to manhattan because of traffic but normally it was very fast (10 min)
I hope to go back next year!!
Appartamento molto luminoso, pulito e ordinato con bagno ad uso esclusivo degli ospiti. Ben collegato a Manhattan tramite bus che passano ad ogni minuto proprio sotto l'appartamento. Eric è un host molto discreto e disponibile. Vivamente raccomandato! Luca e Any.
