Great apartment with simple access to midtown NYC

  • 5 of 5

Ruth is very accommodating and helpful throughout the whole process of checking in, parking, and making your way to the city and back. We have travelled to New York City many times, and this is by far the simplest way to get to midtown without actually staying in Manhattan. The shuttle buses pick you up right at the corner, and you barely have to wait more than a few minutes for one to show up. The bed is big and comfortable, the living area is nice and bright, and the kitchen is well equipped and functional for making meals. Great experience, would book again!

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!

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.
