Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The room is much better than my expectation. Ishan is a very passionate host with awesome life style. He decorates his apartment(of course including the room for you) in a comfortable style. He's very nice and kind to me. Hope to visit him again next time to Newark. BTW, the walking distance to Penn Station is 8-10min.

  • Great host and incredibly friendly. More than happy to help and also cooked a great breakfast! I highly recommend Ishan to anyone interested.

  • Had a great stay with Ishan. Very friendly and helpful host. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. Close walk to Newark Penn.

  • Ishan is great! What a nice host. He cooked me breakfast and supplied me with everything I needed including drinks and a towel. His place is also very comfortable. I also enjoyed chatting with him about various topics and he offered me lots of advice that I found very useful. A very pleasant experience!

  • Great experience! Ishan is a welcoming host, the room was comfortable, the apartment is clean and decorated nicely, and it's just a few blocks from the Prudential Center.

  • It is one thing to stay in a really beautifully furnished, warm and stylish apartment, close to the airport of Newark and trendy bars and restaurants, but staying with Ishan will just simply want to make you stay longer:
    Ishan is a smart, funny and charming person who is willing to assist and help out with all your needs. Though we didn't have much time to really spent together, the conversations were above the usual superficial talks with strangers. His apartment -even in the coldest winter- is well heated and full of lovely details and Ishan keeps the flat very clean and inviting!
    Unfortunately we stayed only one night, due to an overnight transit situation, but if allowed we will definitely repeat the great experience!

  • Thanks IShan for hosting a cold night in that area. He is welcoming and kind. I had a good time. The room is well decorated and comfortable. I highly recommend yours to friends.

  • Ishan was great--so friendly, helpful, and generous. The room was immaculate and the flat is conveniently located a short 20 min train ride into the city. It's also easy to get over to the Newark Airport. I highly recommend staying with Ishan the next time you are in the NY area. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Ishan was an amazing host. Even though we got delayed at the airport he waited patiently at home to hand over the keys to us. His home is decorated so nicely, very pleasing to the eye with nothing very flashy, fell in love with it immediately. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, he even had clean towels for us. He even went out late at night, in the freezing temperatures, to get breakfast for us as he guessed we hadn’t prepared for it! He was very helpful during our entire stay giving us detailed advice on how to use the public transport and which places to visit. We would definitely recommend other guests to stay with him. Also, don't forget to try the tea at his place when you're there :)

  • This is a great place to stay if you drive down to visit NYC, but you don't actually want to drive into the city. There is easy street parking right outside Ishan's building, so you can leave your car and take the train into the city -- the train station is just a couple blocks away. The neighborhood felt very safe (we had been a bit worried about Newark's bad reputation, but it was fine). Ishan is very friendly, and made sure we had everything we needed during our visit. There were plenty of breakfast foods for us to choose from in the morning. The apartment was spacious and very clean, and the bed was comfortable. We spent a lot of time hanging out in the living room, which had a great view. We will definitely stay here again if we're in the area.
