Very accommodating. Great place to stay with easy access to surround areas.
Sehr ruhige Nachbarschaft, es gibt einige Lebensmittelläden und Restaurants in der Nähe. Sehr schöne Aussicht auf Manhattan Skyline. Der 123 Bus ist bequem zu erreichen. Leider waren einige Sachen kaputt, wie Badezimmer Licht, Nachttischlampe, Einrichtungen generell, etc. Da wir die meiste Zeit unterwegs waren und auch die Küche nicht benützen, war es ok.
Check-out ist etwas früh, bereits um 10 Uhr. Als wir wie versprochen die Koffer in Gabys Garage deponieren wollten, war leider niemand da. Wir haben dann die Koffern am Busbahnhof Times Square deponiert für je 10 US$. Das war perfekt.
We had a really nice stay at the apartment of Gaby and Robert.
It is really not far away from the center of New York City and you have a great view on the Skyline if you there by bus from PABT.
It was even no problem to arrive at the house very late in the evening. And there was everything necessary provided as well.
Gaby was a very nice and helpful host. The apartment is in a small house in NJ, about 10 min bus ride from Manhattan. The only downside is that the buses leave 2-3times every hour, so it can take you up to 40 minutes to get there.
There is no subway in the area.
The room is nice, clean and we were provided all the essentials to make our stay comfortable.
The only other downside was the price. We paid almost twice as much as was the listing price the day after we booked it. Gaby said it was airbnb, who adjusted the price, but airbnb said they don't touch the pricing. I understand some dates might be more expensive than others, but trying to blame it on airbnb wasn't the best way ti handle this.
Gaby was very responsive and helpful with our enquiries, right from before we made our booking to just before and during our stay. Clear instructions were also given on how to pick up the keys and parking permit, as well as directions to the apartment.
The room is as advertised, very clean and neat. Towels are provided. The living room and toilet on Level 1 are very clean and well maintained too. Do check out the piece of paper on the fridge recommending the restaurants nearby for meals. The initial USD$50 deposit for parking permit was gladly returned on the day of check out.
Met Gaby twice outside our apartment while she was walking her dog. A friendly and warm lady who always greeted us with a smile. She even helped to clear some of the snow on the steps leading to the apartment. During our second day of stay, the toilet flush was found to be faulty. Informed Gaby and she immediately got a guy to come fix it.
A good, quiet neighbourhood to stay and definitely worth the money. Highly recommended for travellers to New York.
Very nice accommodation place.
The listing description was accurate and neighbourhood was quiet and safe.
