Reviews of this property
The stay in New Jersey has been fantastic, the house is great, with good bus connections to reach the center of Manhattan, cozy and with great attention by the anfitrionada. Recommended.
La estancia en New Jersey ha sido fantastica, la casa esta muy bien, con buenas conexiones de autobuses para llegar al centro de Manhatan, acogedora y con una atencion estupenda por parte de la anfitrionada. Recomendable.
It was exactly as described. Yvonne was a great hostess. We were able to use the whole apartment. Quietly located in a very safe area vonUnion City. With the 123 bus you need depending on traffic 12-30 minute ride from Manhattan. From the Port Authority can explore the city great. We had nine nights with Yvonne and would immediately go back to her. It was also great breakfast. Thanks again to Yvonne for the wonderful time.
Es war genau so wie beschrieben. Yvonne war eine super Gastgeberin. Wir konnten die ganze Wohnung mit nutzen. Ruhig gelegen in einem sehr sicheren Stadtteil vonUnion City. Mit dem 123 Bus braucht man je nach Verkehrslage zwischen 12 und 30 Minuten nach Manhattan. Von der Port Authority aus kann man die ganze Stadt super erkunden. Wir waren neun Nächte bei Yvonne und würden sofort wieder zu ihr fahren. Toll war auch das Frühstück. Danke noch mal an Yvonne für die schöne Zeit.
We've very much enjoyed our stay at Yvonne's !
The place is really nice and it's easy to get to New York City (about 15-20 minutes by bus to Port Authority/Time Square). Plus, Hoboken, which is close, is such a nice place!
Yvonne is so nice and interesting, we've spend every breakfast talking with her and enjoying the really good food she'd prepared (pancakes, bagels, muffins...). She's the perfect host, we recommend her !
Yvonne is a dear! Breakfast was superb and different each day, she made a list of suggestions of things to do for us, she gave us full details of our itineraries to BAM theatre and she was even kind enough to give us her bus ticket when we left. Besides that she is also a very sociable person to talk to and she sure has a lot to talk about.
Traveling into the city is easy from where she is and it is also nice to be away from the hustle and bustle overnight.
Yvonne ist eine tolle Gastgeberin.
Sie hat sich Zeit für uns genommen und uns immer mit nützlichen Tipps versorgt.
Yvonne's Apartment ist so wie es auf den Fotos zu sehen ist.
Die Lage des Wohnortes ist perfekt um sich Manhatten anzusehen. Der Bus fährt Ca 15 min und ist schnell zu Fuß erreichbar.
Die Kosten für eine Busfahrt beträgt zur Zeit
Yvonne hat uns netterweise täglich mit einem Frühstück versorgt.
Es gab leckere Bagels, Obst, Joghurt, und leckere selbstgebackene
Wir würden jeder Zeit wieder dieses Zimmer buchen und Yvonne als Gastgeberin wählen.
