It was super great, we were there in August 2012 in New York. It was a clean and perfect accommodation. Although it was outside but on the WTC as it was in nothing. Sylwia was super nice and everything worked great. I can only recommend. And if I need a hotel again, I hope that the apartment is free ;-) Thanks so much!
Es war super klasse, wir waren im August 2012 in New York. Es war eine saubere und perfekte Unterkunft. Man war zwar Außerhalb aber am WTC war man wie im nichts. Sylwia war super nett und es hat alles super funktioniert. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen. Und falls ich wieder mal eine Unterkunft benötige, hoffe ich dass das Appartement frei ist ;-) Thanks so much!
The apartment was large, light and airy. It could have been an excellent place to stay but due to small things it was just OK to good.
The kitchen is large and has a good cooker and fridge but not enough pots or equipment to make it useable. An example being there are frying pans but nothing like a spatual to get food out, there are only small pots so you cannot cook pasta etc and no strainer if you do cook.
It needs some TLC to freshen it up and small things things like plugs for the sinks etc. There was no broom etc to sweep the floor if you dropped anything so it got a bit dusty by the time we left.
However it served as a good base for our stay. The location is a bit noisey at night and I would not recommend wandering around alone late at night but we had no problems and felt safe enough. The lightrail terminal is only 5 mins walk away and from there you get the Path into Manhattan. It cost approx $6 to get into Manhattan and takes about 35mins.
The stay was cancelled as the description location was far different than advertised.
Requested a place in mid town Manhattan NY and it gave me a location in NJ (where I am from.)so there was no sense to lease a place when I could commuted the same distance to the conference I was attending.The owner apologized for the mistake.
me and my girlfriend stayed in Nj at Sylwia´s appartment for almost one week. The flat was quite ok for that price but "minutes from manhattan" is maybe not the perfect expression. All in all you need 30 to 45 minutes to get to Manhattan when you take the bus to Grove Station and pathway to WTC or whatever. If you want to go straight to midtown plan with a few more minutes.
When we arrived at the flat it was occupied by a stranger who didn´t open the door. So we had to wait for Sylwia for half an hour. Actually that was not our deal. She said it was a missunderstanding and sorted that problem out.
The flat itself was almost clean but not fairly equipped. It should be possible to have some salt, pepper, sharp knives, a can-opener, a bigger pot and another pan in that flat. Just the basics in a kitchen. Then it would be awesome cause the kitchen is actually quite nice. We liked the livingroom and our bedroom. The flush of the toilette was leaking and running for longer times and not well cleaned. There were hairs and surely not from us.
Downstairs there was a very helpful guy from poland. He helped us out on our first evenung and brought us to a grocery store, a bank and a small restaurant in an old VW Beetle. That was a quite nice experience.
The contact with Sylwia was ok, the first evening was strange though because of the other person in our booked appartment.
The last point is the neighborhood. I can´t recommend to walk on the streets after 10 pm. It´s basically not the best street in a black community. During the day it´s not a problem. Once people, kids threw a can against our taxi and the taxi driver asked us if we are sure to at that place. We did it, it was kind of awkward but also nice. It´s not the typical touristic place to stay. But for our needs it was enough. We would do it again because you can save lots of money when you stay there. :) It was good but not perfect.
Anyway, thank Sylwia.
Very clean and comfortable apartment which is situated in a quiet unfortunately not very pleasant. Negative points, because there are many. Is that there was not enough ustensible to cook (we were 4 pers.), And the toilet leaked. In addition, it is too far to reach manhattan contrary to what we said Julwia. A host can not be reached, which we have not received the day of our arrival and we n 'have not seen throughout the holidays. Oh yes!, On the eve of our departure to demand from the 4th pers. Time Attendance 10mn ... my friends were not embarrassed to point out to him his lack of professionalism, wrong description for the address and the time to reach Manhattan. In conclusion, although for smaller budgets and those who are not afraid of the trip to Manhattan. The others forgotten.
Très bel appartement propre et comfortable qui se situe dans un quartier malheureusement pas très agréable. Les points négatifs, car il y en a beaucoup. C'est qu'il n'y avait pas assez d'ustensible pour faire la cuisine ( nous étions 4 pers.), et les toilettes fuyaient. De plus, c'est trop loin pour atteindre manhattan contrairement à ce que nous a dit Julwia. Une hote impossible à joindre, qui nous a pas accueillis le jours de notre arrivée et que nous n' avons pas vu pendant tout le séjours. Ah si!!!, la veille de notre départ pour réclamer la part de la 4eme pers. Temps de présence 10mn...mes amies ne se sont pas gênées pour lui faire remarquer son manque de professionnalisme, son descriptif erroné pour l'adresse et le temps pour rejoindre Manhattan. En conclusion, bien pour les petits budgets et ceux qui n'ont pas peur du voyage jusqu'à Manhattan. Quant aux autres, oublié.
The apartment is clean, very comfortable, kompfortabel and in good condition. Air conditioning in two rooms, new kitchen and a new bathroom. The location and neighborhood is at second glance really great, very friendly, open and helpful. Sylwia is a great hostess, simple, hospitable and everything worked fine. We look forward to our next visit, we take the guaranteed next year in attack. Many greetings to Jersey City, Sabine and Yvonne
Das Apartment ist sauber, sehr gemütlich, kompfortabel und in einem guten Zustand. Klimaanlage in zwei Räumen, neue Küche und ein neues Bad. Die Lage und Nachbarschaft ist auf den zweiten Blick echt super, sehr freundlich, offen und hilfsbereit. Sylwia ist eine tolle Gastgeberin, unkompliziert, gastfreundlich und alles hat wunderbar funktioniert. Wir freuen uns auf unseren nächsten Besuch, den wir garantiert nächstes Jahr in Angriff nehmen. Viele Grüße nach Jersey City, Sabine und Yvonne
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!
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.
