NYC’s Best Kept Secret
Welcome to New Jersey/New York!
This is a 1 bedroom garden apartment located on the ground floor of my home - just 15 minutes from NYC. It is ideal for people looking to visit the city for a couple of days as well as looking to stay for a couple of months. Please message me if you are interested in staying for an extended period of time and I will be happy to discuss long-term pricing with you then.
The apartment has been completely renovated and newly furnished. The walls have been newly painted and a sprinkler system installed.
I live upstairs, so you can pop in anytime to ask questions or to just hang out!
Please make sure that you check all my other listing – *the Red&GreenRoom & *the entire Apartment - 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.
Great energy and very peaceful! Feel free to message me with any questions!
There is a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster oven and more ... We provide coffee, tea and hot chocolate. We encourage you to make yourself at home. Depending on the length of your stay, you can stack up on food and drink, there is plenty of storage space! We suggest restaurants (menus available including of those that deliver!)
In addition to a very comfortable queen-sized bed there is a couch in the living room, that can sleep an extra person.
Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to the Times Square area.Three blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along the Hudson River) Jitney Buses to Manhattan/Times Square run every minute during day, and every 4 minutes at night. Buses run 24/7. They leave from the Post Office on 30th Street - a 10-15 minute walk from the house.
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. Great grocery and wine/liquor stores in the neighborhood; a Bodega around the corner (open until 10 pm), and the supermarket is just a few blocks away.Very safe neighborhood, lots of great restaurants and bakeries but also very quiet at night.

I was born in Vienna, Austria and have been living in the States for some 4 decades. I lived in Greenwich Village and the East Village (NYC) for 25 years - I consider myself a true New Yorker still, although I now live in New Jersey! I speak German and English and the person on the top floor speaks Dutch and Afrikans (she is from South Africa)!
INTERACTION WITH GUEST

Reviews for this host's other properties
A perfect place to stay when visiting New York. Very nice and clean flat. Hannelore is very kind and of great help. From Union City it is only a few minutes to the city center of New York. Buses are driving very often. If you have one day more, try to visit also Union city itself. it has some latin-american charm that is quite nice.
Hannelore is German and has helped us in all questions quickly and easily. Thanks to their advice we had a carefree time in NY. Many Thanks! The two rooms were fine, beds good. However, we had a "hot" time so that cooling in the form of drinks was necessary. The other roommates we hardly get to see. Everything was great!
Hannelore ist Deutsche und hat uns in allen Fragen schnell und unkompliziert geholfen. Dank ihrer Tipps hatten wir eine sorgenfreie Zeit in NY. Vielen Dank! Die beiden Zimmer waren prima, die Betten gut. Wir hatten allerdings eine "heiße" Zeit, so dass Abkühlung in Form von Getränken notwendig war. Die weiteren Mitbewohnerinnen haben wir kaum zu Gesicht bekommen. Alles war prima!
We were two couples and had a very nice stay in Hannelore's apartment!
The bus from NJ to NY is perfect and we had such a little distance from the hustle and NY. Should we again make the trip to NY, we would definitely choose again this accommodation.
Wir waren zwei Pärchen und hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Hannelores Apartment!
Die Busverbindung von NJ nach NY ist perfekt und wir hatten so ein wenig Abstand zum hektischen NY. Sollten wir uns mal wieder auf die Reise nach NY machen, würden wir auf jeden fall wieder diese Unterkunft wählen.
We are delighted with our stay in New York. Hannelore has received and gave us a lot of explanations about tours, buses ....
She is very nice and our listening.
His apartment is nice, clean and well located.
We strongly recommend its housing
Nous sommes enchantés de notre séjour à New York. Hannelore nous a bien reçu et nous a donné beaucoup d'explications, sur les visites, les bus....
Elle est très gentille et à notre écoute.
Son appartement est agréable, propre et bien situé.
Nous recommandons vivement son logement
Wonderful stay in this apartment. Just 15 minutes away from manhattan by bus. The apartment is equipped with everything a family need. And is also very clean!!
We had a great stay in NJ! The apartment is equipped and clean with all the things of everyday use. Hannelore is very friendly and gives interesting information about the new and old New York. Despite the location in NJ you are by bus quickly in Manhattan!
All the best, Lucas
Wir hatten einen super Aufenthalt in NJ! Die Wohnung ist sauber und mit allen Dingen des täglichen Bedarfs ausgestattet. Hannelore ist sehr freundlich und gibt interessante Infos zum neuen und alten New York. Trotz der Lage in NJ ist man per Bus schnell in Manhattan!
Alles Gute, Lucas
The property is located for a trip to New York super (only about 10 minutes by bus to the city center and we never waited more than 5 minutes for a bus). The neighborhood seems very safe (many families with children) and one can experience the suburban living there. The room is very nice and even includes a walk-in closet. Everything was very clean and Hannelore is a terrific hostess. It provides lots of information's about the city and its people and is insanely tried to stay to make as pleasant as possible. If we go back to New York we would go back Book this room.
Die Unterkunft liegt für eine New York-Reise super (nur ca 10 Min mit dem Bus in die Innenstadt und wir haben nie länger als 5 Min auf einen Bus gewartet). Das Wohnviertel erscheint sehr sicher (viele Familien mit Kindern) und man kann dort das Vorstadtleben erleben. Das Zimmer ist sehr schön und beinhaltet sogar einen begehbaren Kleiderschrank. Alles war sehr sauber und Hannelore ist eine grandiose Gastgeberin. Sie liefert jede Menge Info's über Stadt und Leute und ist wahnsinnig bemüht den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen. Falls wir wieder nach New York kommen würden wir sofort wieder dieses Zimmerbuchen.
Perfect apartment 10 minutes by bus from Time Square. We had the red room with a nice 2 bed. Hannelore is a great welcoming. In the weeks before much mail had contact in order to organize everything perfectly. She helped us arrange transport from airport to the apartment. You enter the apartment by using a numeric code, very easy to use. For your bedroom you have a separate key. Shower and toilet were very new and clean. The next day after our arrival rejoice Hannelore us with a box of donuts and all information about New York City and where you should be for all. Highly recommended for anyone visiting New York.
Perfecte appartement op 10 minuten met de bus vanaf Time Square. Wij hadden de rode kamer met een fijn 2 persoonsbed. Hannelore is een prima gastvrij. In de weken ervoor al veel mail contact gehad om zo alles perfect te organiseren. Ze heeft ons geholpen het vervoer te regelen vanaf vliegveld naar het appartement. Het appartement kom je binnen door gebruik van een cijfercode, heel makkelijk te gebruiken. Voor je eigen slaapkamer heb je een aparte sleutel. Douche en wc waren erg nieuw en schoon. De eerst volgende dag na onze aankomst verblijde Hannelore ons met een doos Donuts en alle uitleg over New York city en waar je moest zijn voor alles. Aanrader voor iedereen die New York bezoekt.
Very friendly host who gave us in advance through e-mail very good info on how to get to the appartment and how to travel from and to NY
Very quiet neighboorhood with grocery shop around the corner
Busstop is 5 min walk and bus takes you to center of NY in 12 minutes
This was our first experience. Had a great and pleasant stay, the appartment was super and very clean, with all the equipment a home needs.The area was also very quite and peaceful. Ppl very nice and helpful. The busstop to New York is just 5min away, and takes you in 10min depending on traffic.oneway ticket is around 3$. Hannelore is a superb host. So helpful before and during the stay. Everything was just perfect, we will definetly come again and with the whole family.
