This apartment is totally independent and not shared with anyone.
It is easier and faster to commute into the City from Union City than commuting from Brooklyn or Queens.
If you were to stay in the Bronx it would take you 40 min to get to Times Square. If you were to Stay in Brooklyn it would take you the same amount of time as subways in Brooklyn are not direct. If you were to stay in Manhattan you would not find a place as big as this one for this price.
The apartment is located in a safe neighborhood, close to shopping and restaurant area. The police station is located 4 blocks away.
It will take you 10 minutes to be directly in Times Square!!! in the comfort of a bus. Buses run 24/7 bus stop located a block away from 2 different location.
Pets are welcome.
Raul was quite welcoming and gave us a very insightful introduction to the area and the apartment. The apartment was clean and very spacious and accommodated all 6 adults and two kids. The location was walking distance from the bus stop to new York. we would recommend taking a private bus rather the public bus to avoid going through the port authority terminal in new york. The neighbourhood was safe for our family. Lots of AC provided.
La experiencia ha sido muy buena para ser la primera vez . Nuestro anfitrión ha sido muy amable , nos recibió en la casa y nos la enseñó y explicó donde estaban los autobuses y supermercados allí cerca. Al día siguiente de nuestra llegada nos consiguió un taxi porque teníamos una excursión a Washington y teníamos que madrugar a las 6 de la mañana y el día de nuestra vuelta hasta nos acompañó al aeropuerto y así ya nos despreocupamos del transporte. La casa es exactamente igual que en las fotos muy amplia y las camas muy cómodas, tres armarios para guardar las cosas y la cocina con todos los electrodomésticos necesarios para desayunar. Hasta una noche compramos comida y cenamos allí ya que las otras noches siempre estábamos fuera. No hemos conocido a Miyoko pero la comunicación perfecta mediante los correos. Sin duda muy recomendable! !!!
The hoste made us feel very welcome, we were greated before we had even got out of the car. The naborhood was very friendly and myself and all my party felt perfectly safe. Everyone we asked for help was very accommodating. The apartment was exactly as described, and all the facilities were spot on. The one thing that stands out over everything else, is the quality of the transportation information, this was superb, the bus into NYC is brilliant and cheap. I would not hesitate to book this appartment again.
I would recommend this place! There was 5 of us and we could have fit more. Nice size apartment!!! Loved the parking spot!!! The commute to NYC was very easy and great from this place. It was also a quiet neighborhood at night....which is important to us. Stay here if you are looking for a place near NYC!
The house was just as described, in an very international area. The living room and dining room area is nice as well the bedrooms and bathroom were all up to standards. The wifi was also working well.
The host was not there when we arrived but we were able to get the key as informed from the keybox, also let ourselves out on checkout day.
The location is very conveninent. Although we didnt use the 159 bus (a local mentioned it is only departing every hour no) we always walked to the post office 5 minutes away where there were little white buses for $3 departing every few minutes to go to the city. It was also very easy and convenient on the way back departing in front of the port city terminal station.
There are lots of stores nearby the place, many ethnic restaurants, also mini marts to pick up beverages, etc. The area seemed very safe even late at night.
We took a 20 minute walk down to Hamilton Park one day which gives great views of the NYC skyline.
All in all a pleasant stay.
Apartment was roomy and convenient to transportation. We were very comfortable as a family of 6. Being able to easily park our car during our visit was a great feature as well. The apartment is well equipped and maintained. Our host, Raul, was helpful and welcoming. Be aware that you will need to purchase transit on NJ transit, not a Metrocard to travel back and forth to the city this is easily done at the Port Authority. The NJ Transit buses also take cash. Transit times were as stated, usually took us 10 minutes in route. Total transit depended on how long we had to wait for the bus, easily tracked via google. No problem getting back and forth even late after a Broadway show Great experience. Fun time in the city.
The host is pretty nice. Bedrooms and washroom are clean. Highly recommended.
