The house was clean and well kept. As it was only 5 mins or so away from the train station is was good for getting around. My sister and I stayed for ten day and were very happy with house
Fantastic place for independent travellers

Get a whole house near Manhattan for the price of a Newark room: use of the kitchen and living room if you're happy you might share (you only have to plug the fridge in, Real Mess). If you hate the fussiness, stuffiness and claustrophobia of hotels, this is ideal. We stayed with our kids for 9 nights. George was there when we arrived and left and otherwise we came and went as we liked in peace and borrowed parking from the church across the street. Broad Street station in Newark is 5 mins walk - get the Light Rail and PATH to the World Trade Center or the New Jersey Transit train to Penn Station. The street is quiet but you can hear the trains whistle past in the distance, which we loved - really city sounds! Brilliant value for the low maintenance guest - we had money to spend on all the NYC sights. The occasional bad reviews here say more about the authors than the accommodation. It's unusual, and that's what makes it good.
Thanks for having us, George. We'll be back. Andy, Alison, Suzy & Izzy Hull from England.
An excellent value for the money.

I stayed at NY Bed and Breakfast for two months during a job transfer in 2009. I needed to find a place to stay quickly, and I needed to be near Newark. I had an excellent experience. Without a doubt, the greatest asset this place has is George. He worked very hard to make me comfortable. Also, since I was a more long term guest, George always let me know when someone new was coming and for how long. These efforts made me feel at home. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who is looking for a safe, quiet and comfortable place to stay.
Very good deal to visit NYC
on April 30, 2011
We are a family of 5 coming from Switzerland and it was not possible for us to pay the high price of an hotel in Manhattan. NY B&B was just the perfect place for us, as we have the whole house for ourselves. Clean, practical, we used the kitchen everyday for he breakfast or even sometimes the dinner. A small grocery is in the area to buy some light food or drinks (milk, cereals, bread, butter, pasta ...). But you've better to bring back your meals from NYC, as there is no mall or supermarket in very near area.
The railway station is only at a 5 minutes walk and the trains lead you to Penn Station NY in about 20 minutes (5$ each way). Downtown Newark is also close to the flat with the light railway if you want to go to a hockey or basketball game or to the famous BBQ restaurant recommended by George.
If you want to spend your money better for shopping than for an out of price hotel from Manhattan, NY B&B is the place you have to stay.
Third time is a charm!!!

This is a family oriented place that you want to keep coming back to. Its close enough to the city but yet far enough away from the hustle n bustle for a good night sleep!!! The owners go above n beyond to make your stay comfortable. Its very affordable, clean, n boy "THE PRICE IS RIGHT"!!! I would highly recommend this establishment to my friends n family!!!!
Dear "Third Time"
Thank you very much for your support.
You are wonderful.
New York on a budget
on April 27, 2011
My Australian friend and I wanted to visit New York on a budget and were very happy with the New York Bed and Breakfast. The accommodations were quaint, clean and comfortable, within a 5 minute walk to the train straight into Penn Station. (20 minutes into New York) George picked us up and dropped us to the airport for a reasonable cost.(Taxis have been known to take advantage of tourists). George genuinly cared that we had a good experience in New York. The B&B is only 10 minutes from the Newark Airport. He showed interest in our visit and went out of his way to give us any information we needed. I would recommend it for budget conscious travellers.
A real mess !
on February 08, 2011
The owners don't live there, it's just an house with three bedrooms and one bathroom. No towels in the bathroom ! No breakfast served ! Yes, a kitchen but bring your groceries and cook yhem yourself ! An old TV in the livingroom, but not connected to a cable !!! Just 3 old DVD on the TV table !!! The refrigerator wasn't connected, probably because it doesn't work anymore ! No parking, even if it was promised to get a secure parking ! We got an appointment with the owner on the following morning, but he didn't appear in time ! After an hour, we left and we won't be there anymore !
I can't understand how BedandBreakfast.com has such a member in his listing !!!
"Real Mess" made a one night reservation in February w the idea to leave his car and comeback after several days.
We had a hard winter and almost one snow storm every week. Streets and parking lots were impossible.
Our house invites the adventurous and independent traveler. Easy to get to Times Square and its live shows.
The kitchen is equipped for your use. Welcome to prepare your own meals, breakfast can be purchased upon request.
We provide steam cleaned linens and fresh towels.
We are proud to be on the Silver Listing of Bed and Breakfast.com. Many of our guests came back or sent relatives and friends.
Our reviews describe our place as a "Serene and clean"; "Good Value"; "Very well Situated"; "helpful host"; "Perfect place for a family"; "Perfect to explore Manhattan"; "Little gem"; "Excellent".....too much to list.
Please come, and see it for yourself!!!
Great location for visiting NYC
on December 12, 2010
My husband and I stayed there for 6 days in December and had a house almost all the time (except last night) for ourselves. Upon our arrival we got the keys, hosts were just a phone call away.
Great advantage of the place is excellent location: you can reach NY Penn Station in 20 minutes with a train (station is really just around the corner), 45 minutes by Path (from Newark Penn Station- 20 min by walk or 5 minutes by Light Rail) and vicinity of Newark International airport (to get there we used Light Rail to Newark Penn Station- 5 min, than train to the airport- less then 10 min).
The house was clean and cosy, maybe it could be a little bit warmer in the evening, because outside was really cold.
We didn't prepare dinners, but it was convenient to be able to have breakfast and coffee in PJ's when planning our day.
Also, it was really nice from our host that we were able to leave our luggage in the living room last day, since we had flight at the evening, and wanted to go to NYC in the morning.
One thing I missed- hairdryer. If it was summer I wouldn't mind, but it took me much longer to dry my hair...
