Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Downtown Jersey City - PORTAL TO NEW YORK CITY

Close proximity to Manhattan

The Space

Situated in a PRIME and SAFE historic neighborhood, the apartment welcomes you to this 19th century brick townhouse walk-up in Downtown Jersey City. This friendly and light drenched apartment features 2 private bedrooms with queen beds and large dressers and plenty of closets. The additional twin sized bed doubles as the living room sofa-bed. There is another twin sized bed trundle. A roll-out cot can be made to suit a 7th guest. The private bathroom provides a full shower and tub. The fully stocked kitchen boasts new stainless steel gas range, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge. All furnishings are new, except for a few antique decorations, including the posturepedic mattresses encased for allergies, moisture, dust, and bugs.

Guest Access

Strong wifi, Large smart Flat Screen, Basic 30+ channels, heat, hot water, electricity, and air conditioning. Walk one block for laundry. One closet and one cabinet is for hosts private use.

Street parking is free from 4 pm till 8 am daily and on weekends. There is paid parking within walking distance for $10-$20 per day. Overnight parking is a 10 minute walk from the apartment.

Interaction with Guests

I would like your stay to be memorable and enjoyable. Interaction is primarily by way of phone, txt, and email. Please freely ask questions and let me know of your needs. Let me know if fresh towels or linens are needed, any missing spices, coffee filters, or dishes will make the apartment more efficient.

The Neighborhood

Guests stay at their own risk. We are not responsible for any claims or concerns upon your stay. By booking with us, you accept full responsibility for yourself and belongings during your stay.

The World trade Center is a 10 min subway ride, The West Village is 15 minutes, Union Square and Chelsea are 20 minutes, and Midtown is 30 minutes by mass transit. TRIBECA is a 7 minute drive when there is no traffic.

This Portal to NYC is a 3 block walk to the subway offering 24/7 access to Manhattan and all major airports. Walk safely at all hours, even at 3am, in this true urban neighborhood without the touristy crowd scene where 94 native languages reside in Jersey City.

Getting around

Take the PATH to Manhattan, Hoboken or Newark or take the Ferry for a lovely crossing to Lower Manhattan. No PATH service to the WTC on weekends in 2014 due to rehabilitation work following Hurricane Sandy.

Newark is the most convenient airport, followed by JFK. Mass transit is most cost efficient when traveling to and from airports.

From Newark Airport (11 miles): take the Airtrain to Newark Penn. From Newark Penn, take the PATH to Grove Street.

From JFK Airport: take the Airtrain to Jamaica Station, then take the Long Island railroad to NY Penn Station, exit the station and walk east to the PATH station at 33rd street and 6th avenue, take the PATH train to Grove Street.

From LaGuardia Airport: take combination bus/subway or taxi to the PATH station at 33rd street/6th avenue.

About Viktoria

I like to provide a welcoming environment to travelers from abroad and within. In addition to standards of clean bedding, towels, and bathroom essentials including shampoos and soaps, there is an underlying theme dedicated to our global environment. There are original artworks about the environment by local artisans, an eclectic and minimalistic interior design, fresh flowers, and consumer friendly utilities.

Why Viktoria chose Jersey City

Super quick 15 minute access to Manhattan. Compared to Manhattan and her boroughs, guests appreciate the better rates, quiet streets, more space, and a break from the tourist environment.

What makes this apartment unique

This is an historic dwelling with plenty of charm and warmth. The brownstone brick building was built in 1825 and has a rich blend of contemporary upgrades and old world blend of shabby and chic.

Great base

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was clean and tidy with everything we needed. Having the sofa bed in the lounge really helped us (especially as five of us). Location was great for restaurants and bars - Newark Ave is only one street over and has a plethora of choice - some awesome eating places. Its close to the Grove St PATH - so could access NYC ok. Viktoria was very accommodating - letting us drop our cases off early etc - really helped seeing we were travelling in from another part of the states with lots of cases.

Nice location but not great for a group

  • 2 of 5

Stayed for 3 days with family. The location was good and host was great in providing information and communicating.

The place itself was very small and has 1 bathroom that can hardly fit a person. We had problems with the bathroom door not closing and we had no privacy when going to the bathroom.

The AC unit was leaking water and the water was dripping.

Not worth the price for me.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your generous and valuable feedback. Guests are asked to report issues right away for an opportunity to make corrections immediately. There is a new conditioner installed. The door has been corrected. The listing details describe the apartment as small. We hope these improvements, made based on your feedback, will provide positive experiences for future guests. We would love to have you back the next time your group is visiting.

Charming apartment and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this property. The apartment looked like we thought it would based on the pictures. The living area is small, but was perfect for our family of 4. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. The neighborhood was really nice and fun to walk around. Access to NY is indeed very easy with the PATH train (and it's also walking distance from the Statue of Liberty ferry departure).

It should be emphasized that the owner requests quiet from the occupants. I felt a little nervous about that, but since we have two small children, we just went to bed early so as not to disturb neighbors in the evenings. Although I never met the property manager, she was very responsive in emails.

I would definitely stay here again were I to be in the area again.
