Beautiful Apartment, perfect for relaxing after a long day in Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed with Ruth and Henry for a week in Union City this spring. The apartment was beautiful and spacious and accommodated the three of us perfectly (we could have had a few more guests, actually, although we enjoyed the extra space). We actually ended up staying in the 2 bed, 2 bath apartment in the same building--that apartment was empty and Ruth upgraded us complimentary when we arrived. We felt blessed after a long day of travel to walk into such a peaceful, lovely place! I am confident the original 1 bedroom apartment we had rented would have been lovely as well. Ruth's decorating is amazing and the beds are so comfortable!

Every day we walked out the front door and hailed the express bus to take us to Manhattan. Ruth leaves very good instructions for everything, including how to get around and where to eat locally. We had breakfast at the "Four-Star Diner" across the highway and it was great food and a relaxing atmosphere. We also walked two blocks down to the "Noches do Columbia" restaurant where coffee (including lattes--ask for cafe con leche) is free with your breakfast order.

Other than that, we spent most of our time in Manhattan. Prepare to walk a lot--and bring comfortable shoes! There is so much to see and explore!

After a full day of walking, we loved coming back to this peaceful, gorgeous apartment to relax. We also loved our mini-tour of Union City and Hoboken with Henry on our day of arrival. Thank you, Ruth and Henry, for the great vacation spot!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy apartment had everything we needed including full kitchen, 2nd cable TV and king temperpedic in bedroom, and a jacuzzi tub with bathroom ameneties. The colors in apartment are bright and cheery with lots of windows. You must be able to climb several stairs as it's a 2nd floor walk-up. The street noise is somewhat loud, but expected. We still slept fine in bedroom.

This location in Union City, NJ, was perfect to get to/from NYC 24/7 by bus to subway and Times Square. Cheap at $3/pp each way and depending on traffic about 15-20 minutes.

The Five Star Diner is just down the street from the apartment and is open 24/7. The food is fantastic! Ask for Renee and tell her, "The mother/daughter duo from Texas sent you!"

The apartment owners, Henry and Ruth Garcia, are very nice people and are graciously accomodating.

We will definitely stay here again when our travel brings us back to New York City!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a well furnished, true boutique accommodation with fully equipped kitchen and a spacious living room. The bedroom with comfortable king size bed is on the quiet side of the house. Returning from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan was like coming to a wonderfully peaceful oasis. The apartment is at an excellent location in a safe neighborhood with easy access to central Manhattan - a minibus to Manhattan's Port Authority stops half a block away. The bus ride takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on the density of traffic through Lincoln Tunnel. A shopping centre with a large grocery store is only about 10 minutes' walk away. Ruth - the owner - is an incredibly friendly and helpful lady, made us feel welcome like her personal guests. We highly recommend this place to everyone.

Car: not necessary

This apartment is located on the street which leads to the Lincoln Tunnel; therefore, you will be in approximately 10 minutes to Times Square District. One of the advantages is that you will have access to every single bus which goes to New York as every bus has to take this street to go to New York. On the down side, this is a busy street and you will pick up some of the noise from all the cars and buses going to New York from the living room as this faces the street. The bedroom is on the back and you won't hear it.
