  • I booked this New York apt for ten days and had a very comfortable and pleasant stay.The location is great: it only takes about 12 minutes by bus to Times Square.The view of Manhattan across the river right in front of the house
    is incredible - especially at dusk and at night. I took about 100 photos of the view. Art is extremely patient and helpful with all questions about public transportation, cab services, shopping etc. I was grateful for his patience. The neighborhood is pretty and good for long walks before or after a day in the city.
    The studio is exactly as pictured - cozy and cute.

  • The stay at Art's place made our trip perfect. There was more space than expected, everything was clean (from the sink to the shower etc. etc.), Art was very swift and clear with his communication. Art arranged an extra bed and clean sheets for us, which was nice since we forgot to take those with us.

    The location was perfect as well, the regular bus stops almost in front of the door and the cheaper bus stops down the road, where the great West Side Café is located (Ideal for breakfast/lunch before going into the city). It really takes only 15/20 minutes to get to 42nd Street/Times Square, which is basically in the middle of the city centre, and connects to Broadway etc.

    There is nothing to complain about regarding our stay in West New York / Art's place, I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

    Oh and not to forget, please ask Art if Ricky can take you to the apartment and back to the airport, great guy with a lot of knowledge about the city etc.

  • The apartment is very comfortable, quiet and well located. Beautiful view of Manhattan. Easy access by bus. The owners are welcoming.
    We recommend this studio.

  • Very nice! Very clean. The bus to times square just outside. Art and his girlfriend were wonderful to us. We rented a car and they allowed us to park right outside the apartment in the back. We really can't say just how wonderful these people were from the moment we arrived until after we left. This is one of the best values in town as well.

    April 2014
  • Lovely apartment, everything was as per the photos. Art was really nice even coming over to bring us maps and brochures. We would stay again, thanks a lot!

  • Okej

  • Me and two of my girlfriends rented this place while we visited New York. It really is only 15-20 min to Times Square and the commute was very convenient. The apartment itself is clean and cozy and very comfortable. Art was very accommodating and quick to respond.

    At night you can hear the people in the house walking and on Friday night they were kind of loud so some earplugs would probably be useful if you're a light sleeper. I'm a heavy sleeper so I was fine.

    Overall, I would recommend and come again. Thanks!

  • Art's little studio is in a wonderful neighborhood that proved to be very practical to access Manhattan (except for during rush hours...). I greatly enjoyed the view of the city when taking a quick stroll on the street.

    The studio itself is clean and well-maintained - and Art is very responsive. He also arranged for a small private parking spot which was incredibly useful during my stay. With a car you can easily access a number of grocery stores close by, including a Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and a japanese supermarket (Mitsuwa).

    The only thing missing might be a shovel just in case it snows(!) as the studio is accessed by a private outdoor staircase.

    Overall, aside from the rather thin walls, an excellent stay at an excellent price.
