“Great location, great communication with owner - not much else”

If you are looking for location only, then this is the place to be. Bus stop is right across the street, and you will be in Manhattan in 20 minutes. The apartment is also pretty spacious. Other than that...there was a smell in the whole building, not just the entrance. Apartment was VERY dirty - however, this has been addressed with the owner and new cleaning staff has been hired. Mattresses were queen size, but not very comfortable. Don't expect much in the way of dishes - we were a family of 4 and had to eat in shifts, as there were only two bowls. The rental also included towels, which I would assume meant that wash cloths were provided as well. Not so much...we did purchase 3 wash cloths while we were there and left them there, so you might have some.

We have hired new cleaning people who are leaving the apartment sparkling clean. It is great to receive help from our clients and we do our best to meet the highest standards.

I loved the location and the owner and manager are amazing! I have been to NYC four times and loved staying here more than other places. It was nicer and cheaper than anywhere in Manhattan and is so close to downtown. It is only a 15 minute bus ride to 42nd bus hub and you catch the bus right outside the condo! I am going again for new years and staying here because my experience was so amazing. Neighborhood nice and safe and friendly.

“Don't take a car with you!”

No parking possibility.Bad smell in entrance. Good location. Bakery and groceries 1-3 minutes away. Supermarket about 10 minutes away. Candy has a service minded attitude and welcomes the guests.

We offer a temporary street parking permit as a courtesy to our guests, however, being that the apartment is located in the city, parking is sometimes limited. In the worse case scenario, we have a space our guests can use a few blocks away, especially for oversized vehicles.

This apartment/location was not my first choice. Me and my 3 kids booked late, originally we looked on the other side of NYC (Brooklyn etc). However I know I made the best decision. The apartment is located in a safe area with fast links to NYC. Right outside the apartment is a bus that takes around 15 miss during busy hours to port authority. What I suggest is purchasing a few bus tickets from the bus station or shop to save you time. The apartment us spacious and peaceful with all modern appliances. I am giving this 10/10 and will recommend it to anyone looking for a excellent home type environment in New York, without the expensive prices. Thank You Julio, we will be back!!

“Union City Apartment”

We decided to book this apartment after a few emails with the owner, as it seemed like a good apartment and a good deal. And in fact it was. Apartment: very well equipped, comfortable beds, renovated bathroom, quick wifi. I must say it was a little dirty though, but we were very happy with it. Owners: Candy took good care of us, prepared the apartment and welcomed us, offering help for anything we needed. Our security deposit was returned on the agreed time. Location: 15 min bus ride to Manhattan, so that says it all. It’s kinda hard to get here from Newark airport though, so best is to take a cab. Safe neighborhood, no security problems.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the owners definitely helped with that, attending our requests and offering help. I definitely recommend this rental.

“Great place to stay with easy and fast access to Times Square”

We were a group of 3 friends who stayed there for 7 nights. The flat is very spacious and comfortable and can easily accommodate up to 6 people. The owner is very welcoming and friendly.
The location is great, the bus stopping right across the street can get you to Times Square in about 20 minutes.
Overall, this condo is probably one of the best value you can get and I definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money on accommodation.
