The hotel is in a good location, being situated on Broadway and close to Central Park and Riverside Park. It is a little out of the main action. But this was a good thing. The subway is within 75 metres and is surprisingly easy and cheap to use. It will connect you to wherever you wish to go and it is entertaining in itself.
Many good eateries are within walking distance.
The hotel is clean and the room sizes are reasonable. The cost of the rooms appear reasonable when compared to other hotels.
On the negative side, the airconditioning system consists of the old box in the window type, that was used in Australia 20 years ago. If you are in New York in June, July or August, the airconditioning will disappoint you! According to Charles, on the reception desk, every room at the hotel has the same type of airconditioning. You can of course sleep with the window open provided that New York City traffic noise and smog doesn't both you. I also noticed that flywire screens where not fitted.
Free access to a computor was not available. This is unacceptable in this day and age.
