We stayed for two weeks in this room.
The area at first, seemed a bit sketchy but after talking to someone who's been living there for over 3 month, everything was great.
Nothing happened to us (don't judge the neighborhood just by the looks :) ).
The room and the house in general are really cool and you have everything you need (bathroom, nice kitchen, living room, AC).
Also going to the city is pretty easy, it takes you about 25min with the LightRail and the PATH from Exchange Place.
I would totally recommend it to everyone who is looking for a affordable place to stay while doing a NYC trip.
I was 6 days in New York and have lived in that time in the house of Sylwia. The accommodation itself was top. Comfortable beds, large living room with kitchen and two bathrooms furnished reasonable. There were towels also by the hostess, as free wireless. Bursts is (2x double bed rooms, 1xEinbettzimmer) for 5 people. Sylwia is and when guests to meet only on Monday departures on. But what not disturbing, because then you have more privacy. What should be the narrow, is the fact that sound insulation in the construction of the house was probably a foreign word. If there are more guests in the apartment over it, it can be night and morning sometimes be a bit louder as each step sounds like a herd of zebras. And toilet paper you should buy in any case on the first day, as the funny way will not be restocked. Smaller kiosks are just around the corner, but an all too many choices should not be expected. American lifestyle up.
Ich war 6 Tage in New York und habe in dieser Zeit in dem Haus von Sylwia gewohnt. Die Unterkunft an sich war Top. Gemütliche Betten, ein großes Wohnzimmer mit Küche und zwei vernünftig eingerichtete Badezimmer. Handtücher gab es auch von der Gastgeberin, so wie freies W LAN. Platzt ist für insgesamt 5 Leute (2x Doppelbettzimmer, 1xEinbettzimmer). Sylwia ist eigentlich nur Montags und wenn Gäste Abreisen an zu treffen. Was aber nicht weiter stört, da man dann mehr Privatssphäre hat. Was zu beimengen ist, ist die Tatsache, dass Trittschalldämmung beim Bau des Hauses wohl ein Fremdwort war. Sind noch weiter Gäste in der Wohnung drüber, kann es nachts und morgens auch mal etwas lauter werden, da sich jeder Schritt anhört wie eine Herde Zebras. Und Klopapier sollte man sich auf jeden fall am ersten Tag kaufen, da die komischer Weise nicht nachgeliefert wird. Kleinere Kioske sind direkt um die Ecke, aber eine All zu große Auswahl sollte man nicht erwarten. American Lifestyle eben.
Very nice and clean apartment. After 5min walk on Liberdy you reach the Light Rail State Park. In Newport, the path change and continue until the 33th. Even you are in Manhattan. Sylwia is very nice. She has even picked me up from the airport. Will certainly come back again.
Sehr schöne und saubere Wohnung. Nach 5min Fußweg erreicht man die Lightrail am Liberdy Staate Park. In Newport in die Path umsteigen und bis zur 33th fahren. Schon ist man in Manhattan. Sylwia ist sehr nett. Sie hat mich selbst vom Flughafen abgeholt. Werde bestimmt wieder kommen.

Kritik: Recht laute Wohngegend und hellhörige Wohnung / Sauberkeit verbesserungswürdig / Möbel abgenutzt und wenig gepflegt / Bett im Schlafzimmer katastrophal / Essbereich nur für 2 Personen / Wenig Geschirr und Gläser
It was super great, we were there in August 2012 in New York. It was a clean and perfect accommodation. Although it was outside but on the WTC as it was in nothing. Sylwia was super nice and everything worked great. I can only recommend. And if I need a hotel again, I hope that the apartment is free ;-) Thanks so much!
Es war super klasse, wir waren im August 2012 in New York. Es war eine saubere und perfekte Unterkunft. Man war zwar Außerhalb aber am WTC war man wie im nichts. Sylwia war super nett und es hat alles super funktioniert. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen. Und falls ich wieder mal eine Unterkunft benötige, hoffe ich dass das Appartement frei ist ;-) Thanks so much!
very nice apartment - very friendly and reliable host - costs reasonable - absolutely recommendable!
It's just been a pleasure to stay there...
I recommend to use google.maps for getting out and in house, just click the public transportation button and you'll get a choice of all bus stations around the door. Bus connections are quite reliable...
The apartment was large, light and airy. It could have been an excellent place to stay but due to small things it was just OK to good.
The kitchen is large and has a good cooker and fridge but not enough pots or equipment to make it useable. An example being there are frying pans but nothing like a spatual to get food out, there are only small pots so you cannot cook pasta etc and no strainer if you do cook.
It needs some TLC to freshen it up and small things things like plugs for the sinks etc. There was no broom etc to sweep the floor if you dropped anything so it got a bit dusty by the time we left.
However it served as a good base for our stay. The location is a bit noisey at night and I would not recommend wandering around alone late at night but we had no problems and felt safe enough. The lightrail terminal is only 5 mins walk away and from there you get the Path into Manhattan. It cost approx $6 to get into Manhattan and takes about 35mins.
The stay was cancelled as the description location was far different than advertised.
Requested a place in mid town Manhattan NY and it gave me a location in NJ (where I am from.)so there was no sense to lease a place when I could commuted the same distance to the conference I was attending.The owner apologized for the mistake.
I enjoyed my stay there. The house was peaceful, clean and welcoming. I definitely recommend a stay here!!
Thank you for all. It was all OK. Very nice people and room. Bye
