“Nicely appointed clean rooms, great location!”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

We stayed here over a weekend in early October and overall enjoyed our stay!

Location:
We were very happy with where the hotel was located! It was easy to walk or take the subway to any of the attractions on Manhattan. I found no fault with its location, so you can mark that concern off you list.

The Rooms:
As have been noted by other reviewers, the rooms are small, but make great use of space and are well appointed like the rest of the hotel. The rooms don't feel cramped, are very clean, the beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of room to store clothing. There is a wall air conditioner that seems to work very well, but then again, when we were there when it wasn't very warm. Expect some noise from the street below. Unfortunately, while we were there, the city decided to tear up the street next to the hotel for one entire night. The amount of noise pollution this created was comically ridiculous. The other nights were peaceful in comparison, but earplugs were necessary for a light sleeper such as myself.

Service:
The hotel staff were always courteous, greeting us as we came and went. They were happy to answer questions about the points of interest around the hotel including restaurant recommendations. At the end of the stay, they gladly helped make transportation arrangements for us back to the airport.

Amenities:
This hotel is a base to be used for sleeping, and it serves that basic purpose well. While it has a workout room with a small treadmill and some other very basic equipment, don't expect much. Also, please note that the morning 'breakfast' is a selection of pastries. I ate a croissant one morning, but ended up crossing the street to a great store/restaurant named Essen for something that would power me for a little longer. It had reasonable prices on high quality food items that you pick out buffet style. It works as a good substitute for the lacking 'breakfast' supplied by the hotel. If the hotel supplied some yogurt or cereal it would have been ok, but since they don't, plan on crossing the street and going to Essen.

Conclusion:
I can easily recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a clean, comfortable room in an excellent location. Just bring earplugs (if you are a light sleeper) and don't count on the 'breakfast' they supply to actually fulfill that purpose. Have fun and enjoy your stay!

Fab hotel for a New York City break!
Excellent use of space, rooms aren't big but there is plenty of storage/hanging space
We asked for a high floor and got room 802 on the 8th floor which we were happy with, there are 12 floors in total
You can see the Empire State Building and Flatiron building within 5mins of leaving the hotel on foot
Broadway/Times Square both easily walkable. Close to hop on hop off bus stop
All rooms are 'street view' and we used the air con unit to drown out the inevitable traffic noise and slept really well
Shower sometimes took a while to warm up (it was always fine in a morning, but took a bit of warming up in the evening)
Bathroom was modern and stylish, lovely big walk in shower
Lovely big comfortable bed in our king room
Safety deposit box comes in very useful for valuables
Staff pleasant and helpful

This is a boutique hotel, so expect the same in service and quality. Very personable, chances are you'll see your "neighbours". I was on the second floor and was very pleased with what I embarked on. Small room, almost dorm-like, yet chic enough. The lining was clean, and so was the shower. It was a quiet experience as I never heard any loud noises etc. it's like your bedroom, away from home. You'll adjust quickly if your accustomed to fancy. This hotel is fancy, but in its own quaint way. It was probably an apartment building turned hotel. I enjoyed my stay, (it was 3 nights). If it was a week trip, I probably would have needed a bit more space, but it was just enough!! I was sharing with another person also.

If I had to go back to NY for another short trip, this would be my hotel of choice. Location is great, and the price is right!!

Room Tip: Ask for the lowest floor available.

Stayed at the Mave late September 2013, as a couple, and had a very good general impression.

The room is not very big, but was comfortable enough for two people + suitcases and the occasional shopping bags. Superking bed, nice, comfortable sheets. Street was a little noisy even though I was on the 8th floor, which was annoying.
Bathroom is spacious, but lacked room to accommodate day-to-day personal hygiene items for two people.
Breakfast... don't count on it. Few items, in a cramped room in the top floor.

Overall is a very modern looking and comfortable hotel, with GREAT location, close to two/three different subway lines, but could use minor touches, like soundproof windows, a shelf in the bathroom and better breakfast. A very good value if you are on vacation and doesn't plan on staying in much.

Stayed one night. Wanted to stay at another place, but was directed to the mave, because I was only staying the one night.

Generally a nice, clean, safe hotel -- I got what I paid for.

Breakfast was the biggest disappointment -- something less than you would get at a youth hostel.

My quest continues...

We stayed as a couple at the MAve twice this month (mid-september and end of september). It was our honeymoon, and NY was one of our destinations. First time they gave us one of their smallest rooms, which was definetely NOT suitable for more than one guest. A small bed attached to the wall, no space for suitcases. We asked for a larger room but there was no availability. Second time our room was a proper double room on the 2nd floor, so we were satisfied this time, even though it took us quite some time to sleep at nights due to the noise from the street. Moreover, outside wind comes through the airconditioning system so it could be quite chilly the early hours by the end of september. The friendly staff, free wi-fi and flat-screen tv are the positives. Location is excellent. I would give a higher rating if it wasn't that tiny room the first time we stayed.

Room Tip: Request rooms as high as possible

This hotel hits all the right spots- great rooms, great location, bonus breakfast, great staff & great value. Couldn't have asked for more from our trip and they were even kind enough to upgrade us as it was all of our 30th birthdays. The breakfast of pastries & coffees was a nice touch on the top floor & the quirky retro pictures and furniture gave the place a great vibe. The room even had complimentary toiletries. We were thoroughly impressed and would have no hesitation returning- would be our first choice on returning to NYC.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high as possible to reduce notice from street- unavoidable in busy NYC.
