The Distrikt Hotel in New York is only a couple of blocks away from Times Square and all the other attractions of Midtown Manhatten. There is a subway stop two minutes from the hotel with easy access to all other parts of New York. Next to the location, the hotel must be reccommended for the great attentive staff with their wonderful and friendly attitude towards their guests. We have travelled a lot, but have never met this kind of great service, not even in five star hotels. From the reception staff to the concierge and from staff at the bar to the houskeeping staff, everyone tries to make you feel at home. There is a second service for the room at night with complementary chocolates and when it rains the hotel immediately offers you an umbrella. It is those little things that matter. We had a room with two double beds that was quite large for a hotel in Manhatten. The room and bathroom were kept very clean. Linen was changed upon request as in most hotels these days that care for conservation issues. Housekeeping should only take more care when replenishing things like shampoo. Even when we left an empty bottle clearly visible, the bottle would be taken away, but a new one wasn't provided. But a telephone call to the front desk would solve that issue, so this is a minor thing and overall the service provided was good. Of course, the Distrikt Hotel is very expensive, like most things in New York, but the large room was worth every dollar paid. The only thing that wasn't worth the money, was the breakfast. We bought pre-paid vouchers for $13 a person. You can exchange these vouchers at breakfast for three options, a continental buffet, French Toast with bacon or sausages or eggs any style you like with bacon or sausages. All with coffee, tea and juices. We have tried all the options, but neither was worth the money paid and since the breakfast options are very limited, you will get bored when staying more than a couple of days. Since you can get a decent breakfast for half the price in hundreds of places within a mile radius of the hotel, I would reccommend going out. But apart from the overpriced and limited breakfast, the Distrikt Hotel is a very good choice for a stay in Midtown Manhatten.

I have just spent 9 nights at the Distrikt Hotel. We booked two rooms, and were on the 21st floor. Firstly I was absolutely delighted by our location so near to Times Square. I was then worried that maybe there would be a lot of street noise during the night, but it was so quiet, and we all slept really well.

The Distrikt a hotel has a family run feel to it, so much friendlier than the usual City centre type corporate hotels. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed ourselves visiting NYC, and the fact that after such long busy days exploring the city, it was great to go back to somewhere so welcoming each night.

I would highly recommend the Distrikt Hotel, and when I come back to New York in the future I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: As stated we stayed in the 21st floor, and there was no traffic noise. I am not sure if that was the...

This was my 16th visit to NYC, but my 4th visit to the little gem that is "The Distrikt", I have found this and I will never go anywhere else now. The hotel is right smack bang in the centre of Manhattan, right opposite the Port Authority, where you can get the bus to/from the aiport and be right there ! (no taxis to take when you get into the city). It is only a short walk to Times Square, 42nd Street where most of the shows are, and Macys ! The rooms are gorgeous, and the beds are sooooo comfy !!! There is a coffee machine in the room, and iced tea downstairs in the reception. The staff are the best I have come across while travelling, they would do anything for you !!! Jennifer and your staff you do a wonderful job, thank you for yet another stay in "The Distrikt"

Room Tip: The top floors have great views !

Many thanks to everyone's review's on trip advisor. They were the reason why I booked this hotel and were very accurate.

Me and my wife stayed for 6 nights here at the start of September and were made to feel so important and welcome throughout our stay, from receptionist through to porters and cleaners. All are questions about the City during our visit were answered thoroughly beyond our expectations.

The room was very clean and felt very modern. Many people have commented on the small size, but I would not call the room we had small at all. More than roomy enough for my wife and I, and for New York it was relatively massive!

For our anniversary the hotel provided a card and cheesecake. Although the cheesecake wasn't very nice, the thought was greatly appreciated.

Couldn't recommend this place enough.

Thanks to everyone at Distrikt!

Room Tip: Higher floor for reduced street noise Request room with view of Empire State Building if available.

We had an 8 night stay at the Distrikt Hotel to experience New York for the first time, while returning from Colombia for our son's wedding.

The selection was based on the reviews in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed - the reality matched the reviews.

While the rooms are small - it was New York after all - they are very well set up, clean and comfortable. We had a room with a king size bed and it was one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in anywhere in the world. There were lots of little space saving ideas and the servicing of the rooms was faultless.

The staff were very helpful with tips on where to visit, where to eat and how to get there. The hotel is right across the street from the Bus Terminal - which is also an entry point to the subway system. Down towards the river were the ferry rides around Manhattan. Several blocks in the other direction was Times Square. Where else would you want to be!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on as high a floor as possible - this helps with the noise issue, which we did not ex...
