I think visitors will enjoy exploring the immediate around this hotel, as it’s New Jersey’s festive “Little India”, with flag be-draped streets, dozens of South Indian restaurants, and unusual Ayurvedic health centers and grocery stores. Alas the Haiban isn’t nearly as lively as its neighborhood (though its all Indian staff couldn’t be a more kindly crew). Instead, visitors will find rooms that are Edward Hopper-esque in their bleakness: industrial rugs, hard beds, scratchy sheets and a color scheme that isn’t. That being said, the price here is reasonable year round, the location is a three-minute walk from the PATH train (which will whisk you into Manhattan in 15 minutes for $2.75). Plus rooms have double the amount of space that you’d find in Manhattan and are kept spotlessly clean. Each comes equipped with a microwave, fridge and a brand new bathroom (also sparklingly tidy).
