About This Listing
Yes, New Jersey is a different state.
No, it is not as far away as you think!
The PATH train runs 24h and is a safe and scenic ten minute walk from the apartment. 7 minute ride to World Trade Center, 12 to the West Village, 20 to Herald Square! INCREDIBLE! You can't even get there that fast from certain Manhattan hoods!
This listing is for an entire railroad style apartment with warp speed wireless internet and 24h train to NYC. Plenty of eating and drinking options in this family friendly, diverse neighborhood.
The apartment is simple, no-frills but a great home base for a city vacay or quick biz trip. Cost and location are your selling points. Great for single traveler, chill couple or three friends!
I'm glad that Judson was the host of my first Airbnb experience. He definitely set the bar high!
Before I made the reservation, Judson made sure to answer all of my questions regarding the property and its surroundings promptly and with great detail. After making the reservation, he gave me clear and concise instructions on how to get into the apartment and left notes with tips on how to use the equipment in the apartment. Our trip was focused on Manhattan but Judson gave us great recommendations on places to eat and see during our time in Jersey City.
The place was in great condition, clean, neat, and very welcoming as advertised and the bed was really comfortable. It is located in a safe area, close to many restaurants, bars, cafes, and grocery stores, as well as Grove path station (7 min walk) which is a very convenient way of getting in from Newark airport (via Newark Penn station) and into Manhattan.
The description of the apartment was very accurate, no surprises there. The flat is small but cozy and has all that you need for a short stay. Judson was extreme nice and helpful, answering all our questions really fast. The neighborhood is really nice, with many cafes, restaurants, and places to go out at night close by. Judson gave us a very complete list with recommendations (I really loved the "Dames" cafe!). Overall I was really happy with our stay in Jersey.
Judson sent me very precise information to reach the apartment and was very responsive to answer my messages. The apartment is located in a lovely area, very safe with a lot of restaurants and bars to discover, 12 to 15 minutes from Grove Station. The apartment is not the most beautiful I ever seen, but convenient, large enough for 2 and especially not too expensive. Consequently, it's a good deal, I recommend it!!
Sehr herzlicher Empfang, wir haben uns gleich wohlgefühlt. Die Lage der Unterkunft zu öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln ist spitze.
Simply great. As a first AirBnB experience, my stay at Judson's apartment just perfect. The apartment is as advertised, and Judson was an extremely welcoming and accommodating host. Since I was in town for work, I appreciated having a kitchen and being located in a neighborhood full of nearby amenities. And by the way, Jersey City is wonderful if you're looking for a nice affordable neighborhood and close in to Manhattan. It's definitely worth exploring if you have time. I would definitely stay there again when I'm back in town!
Great stay at this apartment.
You'll get a good sleep in in the big comfy bed in the middle room, but be aware that it is very easy to hear noise from outside. Perfect location, easy access to the train and the Grove St area is the best for dinner/drinking. One night I made dinner, and Key Food supermarket was also super close for everything I needed. Judson was also very easy to communicate with. No microwave, but there is a toaster oven.
All in all, this is an ideal place to stay if you just need a crash pad somewhere close to NY.
