2 Bedroom Airbnb Apartment in Jersey City | New Jersey

Spread the love

How to visit New York without paying for an expensive accommodation? I can tell you, the best decision is crossing the Hudson to stay in New Jersey, of course.
Just remember New Jersey is a huge state, so it’s better to do your research before and check places such as Hoboken, Newark or Jersey City, with plenty of public transport available.

Jersey City is a bubbling neighbourhood with trendy cafes, bars, and restaurants.
Our Airbnb was located only 10 minutes far from Manhattan with really easy access to the Path (their local metro) and it was quite easy to reach the Grand Central Station, for example.

I loved the fact this apartment is placed in a quiet residential area as well. There are a lot of green around and lots of shops too.

On the other hand, like many buildings of its kind in New York, this one doesn’t have a lift. So, it can a bit challenging to get used to go up four flights of stairs after a longer day sightseeing in the city. But it won’t put you off after checking this accommodation properly.

The apartment inside is a true luxury. Really impressive, especially for the price paid for 9 nights staying. It has a lovely and spacious living room equipped with two tables (one that can be easily used as a work space), Apple TV and a comfy sofa.

There is a well-equipped small open kitchen in the same area. I am not keen on cooking at the same space that I usually watch TV, but this apartment has enough ventilation to avoid spreading cooking smell all over the place. Besides, we barely spent time at the apartment itself.

So, it works well for a hectic holiday staying.

The two bedrooms were also quite spacious. The whole apartment accommodates five people easily.

There is air conditioner in both rooms and living room. Something that is extremely important considering how hot cities such as New York and New Jersey are even in the mid-September.

The other plus in this accommodation was definitely the fact it has washing machine and drier. We basically washed our clothes at least three times in ten days spent in New Jersey, and those appliances were life-savers.

Shower and bathtub were also other appreciated features in this apartment. Believe me, any bath is appreciated after walking nearly 30 thousand steps in the city.

The fact it’s on the top floor also makes the ambient a quiet spot. This homey apartment made a perfect next to relax after buzzing days in New York.

The neighbourhood is also inviting. You can find lovely cafes, bakeries and grocery shops around. It’s a quiet and safe residential area too.

I really regret not having enough time to explore Jersey City itself. There is a great sense of community in this historical city and it was lovely to check a bit of its street carnival, with local food and live music during the weekend of our staying there.

It was also lovely to explore a bit of the Liberty State Park and check the Manhattan skyline in the Waterfront parks.

I truly recommend finding an accommodation like this one in Jersey. It’s much affordable and easier to reach New York city from this side of the river. Plus, Jersey City itself is already a good destination to explore as well.
