About this listing
THIS AREA HAS NOT BEEN AFFECTED BY THE STORM. WE ARE HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE YOU.
About your room:
Please don't be put off by this listing being outside of Manhattan. We are closer to Midtown Manhattan, Times Square, Theater District, Madison Square Garden, Grand Central Empire State Building, Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and Rockefeller Center than staying in other parts of Manhattan (Wall St., Upper East or West Side, above 70s... We are closer than all parts of Brooklyn and definitely way closer than staying in Queens/Bronx).
Hi guys Gaby here: to get a feel how close we are, look at the video (website hidden)/watch?v=qVzgLcDjWzY
(There are two other bedrooms, which may be rented out by other guests.)
Newly decorated private room in a three-bedroom brand-new condo 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. The best value for your dollar, this independent Airbnb private luxurious room in your own private apt., is simply a great commute, and your best choice to your NYC trip. 2 miles from Port Authority, 2 miles to Madison Square Garden (MSG), 2.2 miles to Times Square, and 2.3 miles to Empire State Building. Other nearby points.
About your accommodations:
Private luxurious room with a queen-size bed, night stands, open spacious central air and heat, beautiful hardwood floors and exquisite mahogany color to help you relax after a day of sightseeing and shopping or whatever you please. We will welcome you with open arms, take a bath or soak in marble soaking tub with a shower head that makes you feel like you bathing in the rain. Take a walk down a beautiful lit hallway to the great kitchen right out of a James Bond movie. A great experience.
Beautiful large living room with crown moldings all around you room with the views of the New York skyline as background, sit down to a glass of wine hear your favorite music, watch TV on 50" HDTV mounted on the wall for your viewing pleasure, eat a snack or whatever. This is what Dan & Gaby your hosts will provide for you. They will greet you as part of your family. If you need them or request them, they will be right there for your assistance; your privacy and accommodation will be our responsibility and our pleasure.
About the neighborhood:
The neighborhood is quiet and very nice, 100 steps from a family grocery to buy what you need. Walking distance to banks, pharmacy, and 15 minutes from midtown Manhattan (Time Square/Port Authority Bus Terminals). You'll reach Midtown faster from this location than from locations even located in Manhattan.
You'll need while away from home maps, discount tickets to your favorite plays to get you going a large stainless-steel refrigerator, microwave, toaster, two coffee makers. fruit.(website hidden)

ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
* Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to Times Square area
* Five blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along Hudson River)
* Best 'cafe con leche' in town on corner. You'll wonder why you spend so much at Starbucks!

* Great grocery and wine/liquor stores in the neighborhood including one right on the corner which is open until 11pm

Merci à Gaby et Robert pour leur accueil :Exceptionnel !
Ils nous ont reçu comme si nous les connaissions depuis longtemps .Une mention spéciale à Gaby pour ses bonnes indications et surtout ses bonnes adresses .
La chambre etait tres propre et tres jolie .Le quartier tres tranquille et animé .
Nous avons adoré notre séjour chez Gaby. L'appartement était très propre et bien situé. Excellente communication avec Gaby par messages via airbnb (avant et pendant le séjour). Nous avons trouvé rapidement des moyens de transport public pour se rendre à Manhantan. Nous avons même pris un Ferry qui s'y rend en moins de 10 minutes. Il y a une petite épicerie situé à un coin de rue où on trouve de tout pour se faire un petit déjeuner. Nous recommandons cet hébergement.
Nous avons passé un bon séjour dans cette chambre. La chambre est un peu plus petite que les photos peuvent le laisser penser, mais elle est propre et confortable. La chambre se trouve dans un appartement avec deux autres chambres. Il faut donc partager la salle de bain avec les autres personnes. L'appartement n'est pas loin de Manhattan. Avec un bus on arrive près de Time Square en moins de 30 minutes. Attention pour ceux qui viennent en voiture, le stationnement est difficile même avec le permis que Gaby délivre.
The room was very clean and the host was very responsive. All was as advertised. A cleaning lady showed up every day, so the bathroom was kept clean all time.
It is located in a Hispanic/Cuban residential area, but I thought it was safe.
The apartment was very clean. The location is a good alternative to Manhattan. Using the bus 123 takes a little time (waiting for the bus) but is very uncomplicated and no disadvantage.
Gaby is the perfect host, very helpful, communication was quick and easy.
great experience in ny. Actually the room is so small. And the host change the previous house to another place, to be honest I do not like.
