Please make sure that you check all my listings under my profile, and if you don't find the dates you're looking for, shoot me an inquiry anyways and I'll do what I can to help you, including recommending other great local hosts.
Don't be put off by this listing being outside of Manhattan. We are closer to Manhattan than staying in many parts of Brooklyn and definitely way closer than staying in Queens/Bronx. Newly decorated private room in three bedroom apartment in Union City, NJ. Union City is on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel and therefore very close (15 min bus ride) to Port Authority/Times Square area.
Neighborhood is very safe and room is at back of house away from street noise. Choice of transportation options including over 20 city buses and four lines of private buses into the city, each only two blocks away.
Room is furnished with a double bed, freshly laundered cotton linens and feather pillows (regular pillows available). Closet with wooden hangers for your clothes. You'll have fresh white towels and a basket of travel toiletries.
About Transportation: I have received many questions from people who don't believe it possible to be outside of Manhattan and so close to it, yet it's true. Here are some facts about transportation:
1. Apartment is 5 minutes (6 blocks) from the bus stop.
2. The bus is very frequent, I rarely wait for it more than 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the time you won't even wait at all. You will step to the bus stop and a bus will be there.
3. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out.
4-The price of these express buses (chicken bus) is $3 onboard, and $3.20 for NJ Transit bus (#165 or #166)
5. You won't find the chicken buses timetable or route on the internet, it's a private bus company that runs many lines in and out of Manhattan
* City bus runs every 12 minutes to Hoboken, home of the Cake Boss
* Easy city bus access to Jersey Garden Outlet Mall, much closer and as good as Woodbury Commons
Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost. There are no taxes or cleaning fees on top of this, but Wimdu adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.
All the payments are safely made with credit card to Wimdu when booking. They hold the money until the day you check in and will then transfer it to us.
Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through Wimdu. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.
Check out by 11am STRICT. We are happy to help you coordinate luggage storage in Manhattan if needed.
Room comes with private bath, kitchen access and free wifi.
You can let me know if you need a hair dryer, clothes steamer, iron & ironing board, needle and thread, etc. We have everything you need to make your stay comfortable.
**Laundry facilities NOT included but laundromat available one block away.
