About This Listing
Great room for families traveling together or a group of friends. Comfortably sleeps 3 adults. Ideally located near main NYC attractions. Empire State, Bryant park, Times Square and Rockefeller Center.
This listing is for a private room with locking door in a 2 bedroom apartment in a true OLD very New York Style building. An authentic experience for the active traveler wanting to experience the city, best suited for guests that are out most of the day and just need a pleasant place to rest at night.. A convenient and quiet place to rest after a busy day out and about.
Bedroom is a comfortable size with full size loft bed that sleeps 1 and the bed below which is also a full bed that comfortably sleep 2, 3 person occupancy total. There's a place for your things in the open hanging rack inside the room. Noise level is low for a good nights sleep, considering we are located in the most bustling part of the city. The most you hear is the humming of the exhaust fans from the cafe and restaurant below, white noise that helps you relax after a long adventure filled day in the city. Large window to let natural light in make the room all the more charming in this 100 year old building.

This gem of an Apartment is located in the heart of MIDTOWN on the boarder of Manhattan's Garment district. Can't get any more central than this. It's walking distance to Korea town, that boast the best Korean outside Korea. All the major main attractions like the Empire State, Macy's Herald Square, Times Square, Bryant Park, and Rockefeller Center literally surround our location. Shopping, places to eat and things to check out are steps away. Like Lord and Taylor and the new Turkish Bakery Simit Sarayi.
All major subway lines are all within walking distance. Busses on the corner. Apartment is easily reachable by public transit from all major NYC area airports.

Bianca and Jose were very welcoming and were always just a call away! Would def stay here again.
The apartment was in a SUPERB location. Very safe and extremely centralised - it was literally 3 - 4 blocks away from Times Square, Empire State Building etc.
The apartment was clean, quiet and perfect for a good night's rest after a busy day exploring the city. Bianca & Jose were super friendly, accommodating, warm and respected our space. I would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat.
Bianca and Jose were great hostess. Bianca was so polite, humble, and nice. I didn't have a lot of chance to chat with Jose but he seemed very nice as well. The place is great; With Awesome location, a very spacious room and restroom, and very clean. In general, my trip was very comfortable and I felt like I was at my own home. I would highly recommend Bianca and Jose's place for travelers who are seeking a place to stay in NYC.
Btw, Bianca and Jose recycle. I liked that so much.
Muchas gracias Bianca y Jose por su hospitalidad.
Once again staying at Bianca and Jose's place worked out great. My husband and I and also my sister and her 2 kids were able to comfortably sleep in the 2 bedrooms. It is a fantastic location, central, close to multiple subway lines, and remarkably quiet, right in the middle of Manhattan. The kitchen is perfect for a quick breakfast and the bathroom is roomy with a nice tub. I would definitely stay here again.
Bianca and Jose are very heartwarming and great people. The spot is at a prime time area. you're close to empire state, Bryant park, grand central, you name it. The room I had a bunk bed and we can easily share it with 2 people. Price is a steal!
Bianca and her husband are so nice and warm hearted! They helped us a lot and did give us so many suggestions! Their room is very tidy and clean, everything is arranged. This was a wonderful experience.
Best place to stay in New York ever!!! Honestly, no one should hesitate to stay at Bianca and Jose's. This is my second time staying at the apartment and once again it was wonderful.
Bianca and Jose are great hosts, super friendly and willing to help and answer any questions! We arrived late but they were happy for us to arrive during the night and were waiting for us.
The location of the apartment is super convenient! Only 4 blocks away from Times Square and right around the corner from 5th avenue.
It was a pleasure to stay there and I look forward to the third time around! :)
