Rest of the house you will share with two others. The kitchen is completely new and is fully supplied with dishes and cookware, and has a gas range, stainless steel refrigerator, granite counter top, microwave and dishwasher. Fresh bedding linens and towels are included. The bedroom is fully furnished and can easily fit 2 people. There is also free easy street parking for those with a car.
Location is great. Just 20 minutes by convenient public transportation to Manhattan and just 10 minutes by car. Walking distance to Liberty State Park with beautiful views of Manhattan, there is recreation area, jogging paths, playground, barbecue areas, Science Museum and the ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
There is 10-15 minutes walk from historic downtown Jersey City with trendy restaurants, bars, and shops. From there you can take the Path subway to Manhattan (2 stops to the World Trade Center or 4-5 stops to midtown - 34th street).
We arrived in Manhattan by coach and it required three different public transports (Metro, PATH and Light rail system) to get to the house. We had let know in advance when we'd arrive but she was out, meaning we had to wait 40 minutes outside with our bags - we tried calling but she didn't answer. When she arrived we were hurriedly shown to our room and within 5 minutes she left; we didn't see her again.
Toilet seat was broken, there was no toilet roll (another guest asked her about this and was told to buy it himself) and there were not enough bowls or cups for the number of people staying.
Most significantly it took at best an hour to get to down-town Manhattan, and cost about 10$ each way. Factor this in when comparing here with a location in, say, Queens, which is within the Metro boundary - for which you can purchase a 7-day pass for about 29$.
The place on the whole was not TOO bad for the money in terms of cleanliness and facility (free WiFi), but things like having to go get your own toilet roll and simply her lack of presence made it not very homely and is not somewhere that can be recommended for someone sight-seeing New York or who otherwise needs to be near it.
Lovely, clean room. Modern apartment and friendly environment. Well-recommend.
The flat is lovely, really clean, and the flatmates were really nice too. However, it is in New Jersey, not New York, and I found it really hard to get to the first time. To save you what it took me a day to find out, however you end up in New York, get the blue subway line (E) to World Trade Centre, then walk down to the PATH train station. Get any train going out of there, and get out at Exchange. Then go up the escalators (you're now in New Jersey), walk up towards the traffic lights and then turn to your left, where you will see the HBLR (light railway). Get on the one going to West Side Avenue, and take it to Liberty State Park. Then walk across the car park (heading the same way as the train), and you're on Communipaw Avenue. Keep walking up here, past the myriad of chapels, and on the left you will come to Sylwia's - the street looks a bit shady, but you should be fine. The flat is the ground floor flat (eg, not up the stairs). Enjoy your trip!
A very nice and comfortable furnished apartment. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to come back for a second time. Thank you very much!
Hey guys, so I had two weeks in the room, and found it perfectly adequate! that's not so far away from NYC as I thought. The neighbors were also very friendly.
I had everything I needed, bed, bath, wi-fi, kitchen and lots of ice in the fridge :)
sylwia is very nice and showed me everything in the beginning and told what I needed to know.
To the hotel room, I recommend people to experience more of the NYC, and not for those who just sit at home!
Very nice, clean and comfortable room not far from Manhattan. But you need 3 different public transport services (so tickets) to get to Manhattan.
Sylvia is a great host and very uncomplicated. Things can be organised very quick and relaxed. The room and bath was small but very nice and clean. The appartment is beautifull and very modern. Internet is no problem. The only thing on the negative side is the long way to PATH train, which connects New Jersey with Manhattan. But there is a light train for another $2,10 from Liberty Park to Exchange Place/PATH. The neighbourhood is poor but friendly and I enjoyed the stay. thx!
Although the apartment was a large, clean bedroom the toilet leaked when you flushed it, the airconditioning was only in the bedroom, there was only one pot to cook with and it was situated an an area of Jersey city that was not very nice. There were few restraunts, public transport was at least 20 minutes walk away and the only way to get a cab was to reserve one. We moved out before the end of our stay to an apartment in Manhatten as travelling from This part of Jersey city took too much time.
Very nice place to stay, clean, big, quiet, cheap, free internet. The only thing is the trip between the path and the house. I thought it was close enought to get there by foot but it's too far. So in the morning you have to take the bus, every 20 minutes on the week and 45 in the week end, and on the way back, after 9 PM you have to pick up a taxi. (7 dollars)
So it's a good place to stay, the neighborhood is very kind (try the breakfeast in the corner of community pawn and woodward) but be aware of the time to reach the place.
Sylwia was graceful, the apartment was renovated as advertised but we had some issues with there being no a/c as advertised and as it was uncommonly warm for the season. It made things very uncomfortable. Would not have been an issue, as we could open the windows but both nights we stayed, there were screaming people outside all night. We did not get much sleep and so we left early. Also, although the apartment had a lovely fully-fleshed out kitchen, there was little to no cooking utensils or pots and pans. So, it was pretty much useless for us. I don't think we would stay again due to those problems.
