The neighborhood is great, the home is actually quite secluded with a private gated lot. It is exactly as pictured and Henry/Ruth are amazing hosts.
Ruth and Henry were very kind upon my arrival. They made sure that I had all of the information I needed. Henry also helped us park our cars when we had more than originally planned and was very understanding. He also stopped by a few times to make sure we were all set. The listing was as described and the house had everything we needed. Great place with plenty of space for a lot of people to sleep! We enjoyed our stay. Thank you Ruth and Henry!
I stayed at Henry and Ruth's house. It was very warming and cozy. we had so much space. When we arrived, Ruth came over and explained how to get around and she had so much easy information on how to get to new york city. i couldn't believe how close we were to everything. we had a great time and my family and i are hoping to go back again.
Ruth and Henry made us all feel very welcome. They were always available for our questions and queries. They were very accomodating with everything that we asked for. The neighbourhood felt very safe. The public transport was pretty easy to manage and reliable. The apartment was prefect for our group of 12. We enjoyed a wonderful stay in New York made all the better for having been hosted by Ruth and Henry.
What a great & very very memorable experience it was staying at Ruth & Henry's place in North Bergen. I celebrated my 50th birthday with 7 girlfriends who flew in from San Francisco and we all had a blast! The apt was extremely spacious for all of us, plenty of room, very clean, bright and beds were so comfortable. All my friends remarked how good they slept and felt they all received a good night sleep! Also the apt is conveniently located for going into NYC, transportation was very easy plus Ruth provides so much detailed information about the neighborhood and the best way to travel in/out of the city, we were very impressed! They also provided transportation to the airport for my friends, rates were reasonable compared to other car services! Ruth brought over a beautiful birthday cake for me, it was delicious and I was pleasantly surprised! Ruth is very warm, a wonderful host, extremely attentive and very quick to respond. We didn't encounter any issues during our stay, it was lovely and I would recommend Ruth & Henry's Place in a heartbeat! My friends and I are already thinking about renting out both units maybe next time we'll include our husbands LOL!
This is the best place to stay if visiting New York City. Ruth - an absolute Angel and Miracle worker - A huge hello and thank you from Frankfurt Germany. We are a Huge Multicultural Family - with many temperaments - Ruth Saved us when faced with a great travel hurdle - Organized the best Transport- Thank you Mani. My parents felt at home, Coffee was ready the Fridge stocked and for Italians this is the first priority.....Food - totally gracious.
The rooms were Spacious with Closet space to hang clothes - the layout of the house very well planned out and you can fit tons of family here plus an added feature - should you have a bigger family than mine, you can as well rent the apartment across the hall and leave the doors open for inter family access - again - clever. The details of local amenities as well as Ruth's availability make this place a treasure among locations to stay. Ruth 10 out of 10....We will be coming back ....Grazie A Tutti....
Ruth was great. She had all the information needed for the stay in a folder and made me and my group feel at home. I would recommend this place. The area has a lot of restaurants . It almost felt like we were in Latin America with all the kinds of cuisine around us. The apartment is spacious and enough rooms to host quite a few people.
