    It is a good location, probably a little pricey.

    5/5 Jess on Dec 31, 2021

    Feels like home the staff are great, one thing I noticed is that sometimes the weekly cleaning lady doesn’t thoroughly wash the dishes like she used to, she just rinses it and puts it in the dishwasher with residue still in it. Maybe the way they clean changed? but that is a minor issue

    4.5/5 Alexandra S. on Sep 29, 2021

    We love our apartment and building but the amenities fee is much higher than other buildings and you still have to pay to book many things which makes it feel like I’m being taken advantage of.

    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!

    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?

Living in Jersey City, NJ

Jersey City is home to a number of distinct landmarks, museums, libraries, and more!

The city boasts great nightlife, with lots of fine dining options, as well as fast food restaurants, and fabulous views of NYC – but much less crowded.
