    Awesome community/ friendly staff/ top of the line amenities. Weekly Refresh hotel-style cleaning is the best idea and the Handyman Services were very convenient too!

    The best place to live in Jersey City

    5/5 Anonymous on Oct 7, 2019

    I've been living in Dvora's Art House building for almost a year and they introduced their app and complimentary services offering about midway through. While the apartment and building amenities are great, the service has really changed the way I live for the better. Having my packages and dry-cleaning placed neatly in my apartment is always a pleasant surprise but the weekly refresh is a game changer. Coming home to a clean apartment (bed made, dishes washed, trash removed) literally makes my day. Thank you to the Dvora team for being so awesome!

    Love living here! Beautiful building, helpful staff. The bug situation has been rough this month but other than that no complaints.

    4/5 John R. on Sep 26, 2019

    I lived here for one year and signed up for another year. I enjoy living in this building. I haven't had any issues. I do hope we could extend the laundry time access, I (like alot of people) work in NYC and its not easy getting back here to do laundry earlier than 8pm. Perhaps it can be extended until 9pm?

    Renewed my lease this year at the Hamilton House. Though more affordable leasing options were available in the neighborhood, the entire DVORA maintenance and concierge teams do an amazing job keeping the residents safe and the building sanitary. Well done!
