Interaction with Guests
I meet most of my guests upon arrival
The neighborhood is safe so you don't have to worry about coming back from New York late at night. There are a lot of ethnic restaurants, supermarkets, laundromats, groceries, bakeries, fast food restaurant, liquor stores, etc. Everything is pretty much within walking distance from our apartment.
There are at least 20 private lines of shuttle buses running constantly, you will hardly wait more than 5 minutes for these buses. There is a shuttle bus which runs 24 hours 7 days a week and you can take it almost in front of the building going to New York and it will drop you off 1 block away when coming back from New York. In addition, you will also have accesss to approximately 18 public lines from New Jersey Transit buses, Most of our guests like the private shuttles as they run more often and they don't have to worry about exact change like the public buses.

Ruth and Henry are exceptional hosts! They made us feel comfortable and right at home. The apt is better than what any hotel in the area can offer. The room was clean, roomy and quiet. The building is also very quiet and secure. As for the area, it is urban (like any major city), during the day the area is bustling and in the evening it quiets down. The apartment is also located near shops, grocery store, bus stop, etc. every this is accessible in this area. My mom and I are very happy with our stay and we intend on using Ruth and Henry for our future travel to the area. Thank you!!!
We were a group of 7 girls staying at Ruth and Henry's apartment. Ruth was very helpful and explained everything we needed to know.
We had to wait a little for the host and we weren't sure where to park. It was just busy day and the host was running late. After a long 7 hour drive it can suck, but in the end we checked in fine. The host's mother lives in the building and waited with us.
Although we were skeptical at first, the location was perfect. A bus goes right into the city (near Time's Square). It stops in front of the apartment every few minutes. Many places nearby for a quick bite or to pick up essentials.
Very comfortable beds, we all slept well. It gets bright in the main room, so if you are a light sleeper bring a mask.
Had everything we needed and more. Ruth even left us bread, milk, and the basic essentials. Internet, good. Parking, on the street. Towels, blankets, shampoo, coffee, glasses, ect.
If you are looking for a comfortable place to say for a great price, it's the place to stay.
If you aren't nit-picky, the place really has everything you need for a comfy place to stay.
Ruth was a great host! She was very helpful and accommodating. We had a large group staying in 3 different apartments, and all arriving at different times and she was helpful in getting us around and situated through the whole process. She was even so sweet to leave us some breakfast groceries and she brought us an amazing cake the last night! I highly recommend working with her. It made our weekend in New Jersey/New York even better.
Ruth and Henry were wonderful hosts! For our arrival, they arranged for someone to come and pick us up from the airport - which was very helpful. Ruth and Henry also provided us with great information as to how to best navigate our travels into New York. We were able to catch a bus straight into the city from right outside the apartment. We were also able to use the same bus to return back to the apartment.
The apartment was very clean and nicely designed. The bed was very comfortable! Ruth and Henry also provided us with some breakfast food (bread, orange juice, cream cheese, eggs, jam, milk, coffee) for our stay. This was incredibly helpful and helped us to save both money and time during our trip.
Communication with Ruth and Henry was also very easy. They replied to emails and questions in a very prompt manner. They seemed to genuinely care that we had an enjoyable visit!
Ruth et Henry nous ont proposé leur service de transport et c'est donc Henry qui est venu très accueillant malgré le temps de retard de notre part du au douane dans l'aéroport !Nous avons eu ensuite le droit à une visite en voiture de Manhattan pour nous aider à nous repérer, il nous ont indiqué les arrêts de bus Ils sont vraiment géniaux dans l'appartement il y avait du jus d'orange du lait même ce qu'il faut pour faire à manger. Par rapport à la localisation vous pouvez voir l'Empire stade building de devant chez eux les bus sont très fréquent ont à très rarement attendus il y à pas mal de restaurant et supermarché proche et même pour sa Ruth et Henry vous fournisse des listes complète sur les restos, divers transport, lieux de renseignements... En bref très bonne expérience merci j'espère que nous reviendrons très vite.
Hormis le fait que les photos grand angle sont souvent trompeuses, le logement proposé par Ruth et Henry est parfait jusqu'à 4 personnes (il est proposé pour 7 mais cela implique de déplier 3 canapés lit dans la pièce salon/salle à manger....). Ruth est très serviable et se plie en 4 pour nous rendre service et répondre à nos attentes. un grand merci pour cela. The appartment is very good till 4 peoples (for more there is 3 sofa in the same room...). Ruth is very attentive and very kind to answer to all questions. Thank you very much for that.
