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!
very welcome. The accommodation is clean and functional. It is close to public transport to get to Manhattan and have magnificent views of New York.
très bon accueil.
Le logement est propre et fonctionnel.
Il est proche des transports permettant de se rendre sur Manhattan et d'avoir de magnifiques vues de new York.
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.
Good things: price, shops next door speak Spanish, they give you the freedom to come and go back to the time you want, cleaning, bathroom and kitchen in good condition. have a beer on the stairs of the house and see live the typical action movies Bad things: the inability to talk to the hostess on many occasions, the uneasy feeling you get comments from people in the neighborhood and walking around at certain times of day and night (we came safely but from late at night is advisable to take a taxi) (still a good experience we get to know New York and New Jersey from another perspective and not as mere tourists). Transporting cards do not work in new york new jersey. You have to walk, catch a tram and then a subway to get to new york. The third bed is a sofa bed uncomfortable.
Cosas buenas: su precio, los comercios de al lado hablan español, la libertad que te dan de venir y volver a la hora que quieras, limpieza, baño y cocina en buenas condiciones. el tomarte una cerveza en las escaleras de la casa y ver en directo las típicas películas de acción
Cosas malas: la imposibilidad de hablar con la anfitriona en muchas ocasiones, la sensación de intranquilidad que te dan los comentarios de la gente del barrio y el andar por allí a determinadas horas del día y de la noche (nosotros vinimos sanos y salvos pero a partir de altas horas de la noche es conveniente coger un taxi) (aún así sacamos una buena experiencia de conocer New York y New Jersey desde otra perspectiva y no como simples turistas). las tarjetas de tranporte de new york no sirven en new jersey. Tienes que andar, coger un tranvía y luego un metro hasta llegar a new york. La tercera cama es un sofa-cama algo incómodo.
Clean and comfortable apartment. Good bed, nice layout and design. Free wifi. Unfortunately no TV or radio. House is not in New York but in Jersey City in the state of NY. It is a great tour to reach Manhattan. Journey by bus and train is about an hour. The ferry is only a brisk walk and a crossing of $ 7 per person. The house is located in a neighborhood where my 13 year old son did not dare to walk in the dark. So everyday home before dark. No NY by night seen, unfortunately. No cookware available, to buy himself a skillet to fry an egg. Furthermore, for the whole week had access to 2 towels in pairs. Next time you prefer something more expensive with an app. in Manhattan. The daily effort, cost and aggravation of the trip I save over al
Schoon en comfortabel appartement. Prima bed, leuke indeling en inrichting. Gratis wifi. Helaas geen tv of radio aanwezig. Huis ligt niet in New York maar in Jersey City in de staat NY. Het is een hele tour om Manhattan te bereiken. Reisduur met bus en trein is ongeveer een uur. Met de ferry is eerst een flinke wandeling en een overtocht van 7 dollar pp. Het huis ligt in een wijk waar ik met mijn 13-jarige zoon niet in het donker durfde te lopen. Dus dagelijks voor donker thuis. Geen NY by night gezien, helaas. Geen kookgerei aanwezig, zelf een koekepan moeten kopen om een ei te kunnen bakken. Verder voor de hele week de beschikking gehad over 2 handdoeken met zijn tweeën. Volgende keer liever iets duurder uit met een app. in Manhattan. De dagelijkse moeite, kosten en ergernis van de reis bespaar ik dan al.
clean and comfortable apartment, if you do not mind to do some travel by public transportation to Manhattan to come, and a great and inexpensive apartment, hostess flexible in many ways, little cooking
schoon en comfortabel appartement ,als je het niet erg vindt om wat te reizen met openbaar vervoer om in Manhattan te komen, een prima en en goedkoop appartement ,hostess flexibel in vele opzichten ,weinig kookgelegenheid
