Apartment - Private room · 48th Street, Weehawken, NJ 07086, United States

The Space

This beautiful weehawken new home is located by blvd east and has a NYC skyline view. It is extremely convenient to transit, grocery stores and restaurants.
My quiet spare room is in a two-bedroom, two-bath home in a well-maintained modern elevator building. My visitors get the best of a local experience! My great reviews show people have loved it so far, so I'm sure you will too!

I recently added a valuable amenity - I now offer FREE access to the Museums(up to June 2015)- this is a savings of over $100 admission price per guest, so if there are two of you, that saves you $200 right off the bat! As always I still ask no cleaning fee, and no extra fee for a second guest!

With these new additions, I think for location, convenience, comfort and price I offer the best value in the city! There is no additional charge for a second person - couples (straight, gay or platonic) are welcome.

Master bedroom with a bathroom
Towels and sheets
FREE admission to the Museums including MoMA, Guggenheim, Whitney, Botanic Gardens, American Museum of Natural History and more

  • Room was spacey and bed was fantastic. Quiet and conveniently located. An excellent skyline view and the bus stop within 2 mins. Private buses to NYC were more frequent ($3 pay after you get off)
    I'd avoid getting the bus from NYC during rush hour, it was very very busy (Chevys by Port Authority do happy hour margaritas if you want to waste some time whilst waiting). 10 tickets on the public bus cost $27 or $3.20 for one ticket.
    Food and supermarkets 10mins walk from the apartment but it may not be as safe for a solo female at night around those areas.
    The museum pass was a great bonus. Zhen was a fantastic host, always very quick to respond to emails after we encountered several problems. And was always welcoming even when we were making his life difficult!
    Overall a great stay, and a relaxing pace compared to NYC. The view of the skyline from the end of the road is definitely the highlight of staying here!

  • Excellent experience. It's very easy to go to Manhattan: 3 minutes by foot more 12/15 minutes by bus (30 minutes only one time, with a lot of traffic): less than from other parts of Manhattan! The room is large and clean, with a small walk-in closet, very useful, and (very important) a private bathroom. Museum card is very useful, too, and make possible to save money (with his card we didn’t buy the Ny city pass, but we only paid separately the Top of the Rock and Ellis Island tour). Zhen is a good and very pleasant host. Only one suggestion: keeping a little more in oder the common area :-).

  • We were seduced by the very good reviews we read about Zhen and his apartment. All the nice things people wrote proved to be true. We were very happy in the apartment and it was a nice base for our 6 day stay in New York. The room + bathroom are quite functional and clean and we could use the kitchen. The bustrip to Port Authority is quick (ca. 10 min.) and very reliable. We used the museum card a couple of times, it was a nice extra. Zhen is a formidable host who even took us to his favourite shopping centre by his own car. We will certainly come back to Zhen when we visit New York again.

  • Zhen's place was exactly what we needed it to be. A clean, warm, nice and affordable place to lay our heads at night. The apartment was the nicest place on the street: modern, clean and safe. The location is fantastic. Only a walk down the street to the bus stop followed by a $3.20, 10 minute bus ride to times square. Zhen's museum pass provided us with hours of entertainment, a great bonus! Zhen was very kind and hospitable. He respected our privacy and was a great host. If you need him for any reason, he is good about returning your calls and texts. Will stay again next trip to NYC!

  • Beautiful room, in a nice street. Zhen was very kind with us. The apartment it's 15 minutes from time square, whit a bus that's 27 dollar for 10 tickets.

    January 2014
  • Very nice and clean room! Skyline from Zhen's house is an amazing view!
    We stayed at Zhen's place for 4 nights, had a great time in NY!
    From Zhen's house to Timesquare it is 10 minutes by bus. In NY-city it is easy to use the subway.
    Zhen is a very good host, will help you with everything if it is needed. The museum pass is a great thing too!
    We had a very pleasant stay at Zhen, would recommended to everyone!!!!

    THANK YOU ZHEN!!!!!

  • Really nice modern apartment there.

    It's New jersey but you can get in the middle of Manhattan (Time Square,42th St) in less than 10 mnts !, quicker than some NY boroughs ;)
    We only stayed 2 nights and Zhen was really cool,even help us to book for taxi/limo service (48$ to NWR airport, all included, tolls & gratuities) which was not easy as they need a US number to call you.
    There is a Express bus every 15 mnts from Port Autority, but that's alreaday 16$/pers. so...

    For the rest, everything was said !

    ==>For international shopping addict, try Jersey Garden Mall, really good outlet !
    From Port autority,catch bus 111 (door 222, 20 minutes ride). Once in the mall, dont forget to show your passport in Information point to get all reduction ticket brand by brand (Nike, Tommy H....)

    ==>Zhen house is close to Bergenline avenue, great Latin area (try El rancho Colombiano, nice restaurant !)

    Thanks Zhen

  • Zhen's flat was nice with a big, comfortable bed. Zhen was really nice and gave us a lot of helpful tipps for our stay. We made good use of his Museums Card (MoMA, Guggenheim and others).

  • Zhen's apartament is great and very well localized. The suite is spacious, and everything was clean. In 5 mins you get to the bus stop that takes you downtown, to Port Authority - couple of minutes away from Times Square, and to a 'waterfront trail' that is just amazing! it has a gorgerous view of manhattan! Zhen is also a very nice guy, that likes to meet new people. Although he has the museum pass, we didnt have time to use it. I hope to come back soon and would love to stay at his place again!
