The Space


Hi guys Gaby here: to get a feel how close we are, look at the video http://(website hidden)/watch?v=qVzgLcDjWzY

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).

Newly decorated private room in three-bedroom house 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 is simply a great commute, and your best choice to NYC. 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, nightstands, 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're 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. A beautiful large living room with crown moldings all around you, room with views of the New York skyline as background, sit down to a glass of wine, hear your favorite music watch TV in 42" HDTV mounted on the wall for your viewing pleasure. This is what Robert & Gaby your hosts will provide for you; they will greet you as part of their 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 need while away from home maps discount tickets to your favorite plays to get you going a large stainless steal refrigerator, microwave, toaster, two coffee makers and

ABOUT YOUR ROOM and the house:
* No physical keys, so you can come and go as you please
* Real queen bed, very comfy and cozy.
* Spacious house
* Original wood floors
* Big balcony where you can smoke
* Free WIFI cable
* Includes all linens, blankets, towels and pillows
* Shared kitchen and bathrooms (one full bath, one powder room) with other guests
* House is on street level so there are some stairs to walk up

* 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!
* Buses to Manhattan/Times Square run every minute during day, and every 4 minutes at night. Buses run all night.
* Great grocery and wine/liquor stores in the neighborhood including one right on the corner which is open until 11pm
* Very safe neighborhood, lots of great restaurants and bakeries but also very quiet at night.

* Private buses (we call it 'chicken bus') run 24/7 and go directly to Manhattan's Midtown / Port Authority, one block away from Times Square for $2.50 a seat. It's what all the locals use.
* City bus runs every 12 minutes to Hoboken, home of the Cake Boss and every 20 minutes (during commute hours) into Manhattan.
* Easy city bus access to Jersey Garden Outlet Mall, much closer and as good as Woodbury Commons.

Great energy and very peaceful! Feel free to message me with any questions!

  • Great location in a nice neighborhood right across the river in Union City.

  • it was a clean and nice place to stay

  • I had a good visit of one night, it was a great location to get to from Penn Station, walked to the Port Authority Terminal and took a bus that allowed me to also see the neighbourhood. If I had more time in the NYC area I would have liked to explore the neighbourhood.

    My stay was restful and I was able to get to the train in the morning with no trouble at all.

  • Gaby is a great host! She is kind and super responsive to any of her guests needs or questions. This room is great and affordable. It's very easy to get to and from manhattan on the buses. I am going to stay here again next time Ian in NYC.

  • Close enough to the city to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet. Very easy to get in to Manhattan by bus to the port authority where you can get anywhere with the subway. Warm and comfortable in the house while below freezing outside. Gaby is extremely friendly and was helpful with information about the local area. Highly recommended. Thanks.

  • Séjour inoubliable bien sur, Gaby nous a guidé par mail jusqu'a destination (conseils avisés et économiques) sur place chambre petite mais confortable et propre. Les communs ont tout ce qu'il faut, le bus est au bout de la rue pour 3€,40 (prévoir monnaie) le quartier est sympa avec petite épicerie pas loin et restos. Le contact avec les autres locataires est sympa et enrichissant. Compte tenu du prix je referais le choix du new jersey malgré les trajets (15-20 min en fonction du trafic) avont rencontré Gaby qui est une charmante personne très sympa et plein de bons conseils

  • The apartment was easy to find and checking in and out were a breeze. It was easy to get into Manhattan as well. i had to go to school on the weekdays and though the bus was often packed, i was always able to get on and was never caught in traffic for long. it's also recommended that you get the weekly passes rather than doing ala carte which is more expensive. if there's 2 of you, you can share the 10 tickets between yourselves easily.

    i also appreciate the cleaner coming in everyday to take the trash out and cleaning the apartment. they don't go into your room so it's only the common areas they work on.

    i would certainly stay there again if needed :)
