Cute apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice, clean property. It was a little tight in the living room when both couches were pulled out into a bed.

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

We picked this vrbo just based on reviews. Not knowing anything about the NYC area. The apartment was very nice with everything that we needed. The neighborhood is very safe even coming back at around midnight I never felt unsafe. The buses that the hostess will tell you about work perfect and never a wait. There are some nice places to eat 2-3 blocks away. If you are on a budget and can't afford to stay right in manhattan this apartment is perfectly situated and I will recommend to any of my friends that might travel this way. Thanks for everything.

Union City

  • 3 of 5

The apartment in Union City was OK. It definitely could use some updating, and while I can't say that it was dirty there were some areas that could have used a good cleaning.

The buses to NYC were very convenient and we never waited more than 5 minutes for a bus. The 15-20 time into the city was accurate EXCEPT during rush hour (it took almost an hour on a Friday morning.) But the location of the stop at both ends was perfect. Parking was definitely a problem - we were there 4 days and were not able to find parking on the same street until the last day. There were spots within the 4 block radius that the pass allowed except on street cleaning days (Tues & Fri).

The bedding and towels were clean and the kitchen was moderately stocked. The cable TV in the living room was not working and the few channels we could get kept breaking up - we were told there would be a new box the day after we arrived but it still wasn't there when we left.

And it was very noisy - probably would have been ok if we had needed the air conditioner but didn't so there was nothing to drown out the street noise.

I probably would not stay again but as I said - it did serve the purpose

Perfect and Affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing! Ruth was fantastic, answered all questions and assisted us with transportation to and from the airport (Thanks Manny!).... even with our unexpected last minute flight changes w/ our airlines that delayed us for several hours. Pictures of the apartment are exactly as described and transportation to the city was a breeze! We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend for others!

5 stars, awesome

  • 5 of 5

Ruth was very nice and accommodating. Apartment was very clean and everything that we expected. My family and I are from Texas and with Ruth's help, we lived the new york experience. Plan on returning again to stay with Ruth. Stay with Ruth, you won't regret it.

Great location and value for money

  • 5 of 5

We were picked up at JFK by Manny who was sent by Ruth. I was very pleased with the service and glad we'd opted for it as it took over 2 hours to clear controls. The apartment was great with all the things necessary for a comfortable stay. The bed was super comfy. The apartment would benefit from a refresh but overall was more than adequate. We used the "Chicken buses" to travel to and from New York and never had to wait more than a couple of minutes. It never took longer than 15 minutes for our journey and the service terminates adjacent to Times Square. We has a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to use Ruth and Henry's place again.

Map

Nearest Airport

Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
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.
