Quaint and private. Home was well kept and charming with a San Francisco feel. Check in and out was straightforward, no hassle. Plenty of Uber available at all hours to get to and from New York and Newark Airport. I was staying here after a side trip for work. Recommend again and will def come back next work trip around.
Fred was a wonderful host. He replied to my enquiry within a few hours.
This was my first time renting a place through Airbnb and it was overall a very good experience.
The room, what more can I say other than the fact that it comes “As Advertised”. The room was in exact condition as in the pictures, with everything clean and quite a lot of space. I stayed for a week with Fred. He was a great host and has made sure that I had a comfortable stay. Bed was as good and comfortable. Neighborhood is quiet. When I came in, Fred took a few minutes to show me the room and explain all & gave me great advice about a places to see, restaurants to try. The room is large, clean and private with an attached bathroom. It was very elegant and modern. It is in a quiet neighborhood, with lots of street parking. The surrounding neighborhood seemed quite safe and I parked the car on the street overnight without any issue.
The room exceeded my expectations and my first stay at Airbnb property is a positive one. I would highly recommend Fred's place. Fred’s place put the bar way up high for any future Airbnb experience for me.
Listing is accurate. Quiet neighborhood. A great study place for students that may rotate at Beth Israel Medical Center (20mins away). And just 20mins away from Penn station if you want to hop on the train and go to New York (10min ride). Very convenient location.
Fred is courteous and accommodating throughout. Great at communication as well. I would easily book a stay here anytime.
I enjoyed my stay at Fred's. The room was comfortable, bathroom seemed updated. .nice shower. He lives in a quiet neighborhood. .I walked to my friends home a few blocks away. I slept very well there. .I hope I get another chance to visit & that his home is available.
Fred is a friendly and welcoming host who communicated well.
The room is large well decorated and furnished.
The bed is very comfortable with clean (website hidden) with dvds and reliable wifi with a good signal.
The ensuite bathroom is clean with a warm shower nice soft towels and toiletries supplied.
The neighbourhood is safe and near good transport links.
I enjoyed my stay and felt comfortable and relaxed thank you Fred for your hospitality.
More than happy with my stay. Room is nice, big, comfortable, picture is accurate. Good shower, bathroom, etc. Everything is clean and well kept.
House is on a nice tree lined block, quiet peaceful place to stay, close to bus and not far from Broad St. Station if you're headed to the city. Only caveat would be if you're a night owl NJ Transit trains run infrequently from NYC back into Jersey so have to be mindful of the schedule.
Fred is a good host--helpful, responsible and a good guy. I was gone most of the time during my stay but when I was there he was always helpful and easy to get along with.
Fred was an excellent host. It is clear he has been a host many times before because many things are already anticipated ahead of one's stay.
If you get the chance to meet his partner, he is also an excellent host. Both of them are very friendly, warm, open and extremely welcoming.
The neighborhood is relatively safe, I had no problems leaving at 5:50 AM and returning as late as 9:30 PM. My car was parked out front with no incidents. The location is great relative to the major roads/public transportation.
I stayed with Fred for 2 weeks and have no complaints about anything within the two weeks. He has other rooms he rents out at the same time so this is also a great place for solo travelers who may want to meet other people without going through a hostel environment.
I recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in a quiet oasis in the middle of Newark. The location is great, the house itself is beautiful and you will feel safe, and you are only an arm's length away from many great places to explore and see.
Great for medical students doing rotations at any of the nearby hospitals!
A small thing I noticed but greatly appreciated was a clean bath rug
