“Perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Although many think that 40th between 8th and 9th Ave would not be very central to everything it was pretty perfect. We could get to any where we needed within a 10-15 min walk. We never needed to bother with cabs. Staff were all freindly, accommodating and extremely helpful. We had driven in so we had a arrived a few hours before check in but were still able to take care of everything needed and then go off to start our day while they held on to our bags. Room was ready upon our return so we could relax and get ready for our evening out. Room was clean, great view (28th floor) and a good size for a group of 4 women. We didn't feel crowded and were able to get ready without getting in each others way.

The offer a continental breakfast in morning for very reasonable price ($11.00) along with other menu items. The morning we had breakfast there was one young lady on alone as other staff had not come in. I must commend her as she was handling the entire area.. either taking orders (menu) bringing coffee or juice, answering questions and still did not get flustered nor was she short with any of the customers. Again this was part of the GREAT customer service we had from the entire staff.

We used the independent parking garage next door and were able to put our bags in the next morning at check out without having to store them at hotel and still leave the car until we were ready to drive home. We are already planning another trip for the spring and will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: There are only 5 rooms per floor so none are bad. We choose an upper level for the view and noice.

Stayed here from 27th November until 6th December with my husband and two young children.

From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed by all staff. They were all amazing and couldn't do enough to help us. Special mention to Hugo who was just fabulous with the children. Also, the house keeping lady who has done an amazing job throughout the whole of our stay.

We stayed on the 14th floor in a room with two double beds and a bath tub in the bathroom. I requested a room with a bath prior to our stay and a mini fridge, both of which were provided. The room was a great size. Plenty of room for the four of us. The only really slight issue was lack of clothes storage for a family. This wasn't a massive issue and wouldn't ever put me off staying here.

The location is great. 5 mins from Times Square. Plenty of transport links on the doorstep. We walked everywhere though. Don't let the street put you off. Yes there is a couple of unsavoury shops/parole office on the street but we never once felt unsafe. The street is close enough to the action but far enough away from the hustle and bustle if you prefer a quieter stay - therefore in my opinion would suit every one. There was practically no noise from the street below.

The hotel is very well kept and the staff are a credit. The welcome brownies and biscuits on Thanksgiving were a definite hit.

I would definitely recommend the Distrikt to anyone. We are already planning ahead for our next visit to New York and I wouldn't hesitate in re-booking the Distrikt. Absolutely lovely place and definitely worth the high reviews on trip advisor.

Thanks to all the staff at the Distrikt Hotel for being part of our truly amazing trip to the Big Apple.

We stayed here the start of November. My girlfriend and I are in our 20's and we travelled with her parents, it was our first time in New York and will be returning to this same hotel. The moment we arrived we was greeted by friendly warm welcoming staff. Our room was on the top floor and had a view of both the hudson and the Empire state building.
The room itself was lovely, clean and modern and just enough room for all your things.
The bathroom was great we had a massive shower which was lovely. People had previously complained about the lifts taking a while, as we was on the top floor I thought oh god this is going to be an issue but the longest we waited was a couple of minutes one day.

Great location! Cant stress this enough, you are just out of the time square which is good because its like 2 streets down so close enough to walk but far away enough you don't have bright lights beaming into your room.

Big Bus terminal is the other side of the road but its not like anything in England, its a big building that buses drive around inside not a bus depot with loads of buses waiting outside. You don't hear them or see them either.

Staff at the hotel were great always recommending places to eat and quickest way to get somewhere.

If you go to New York stay here you won't regret it.

Room Tip: High floor and upgrade if you can.

From the moment we checked in the staff couldn't do enough to help. We were always greeted with a friendly smile. The room staff even left thank-you notes for the tips we left. We were here for 6 nights and will be staying here again when we return to New York. Close to the subway and a short walk to Times Square. The bed was also VERY comfortable, something I find a rarity in hotels. Staff recommended places to eat - very helpful after 30 hours in transit.

Distrikt hotel New York on 40th street is very comfortable to stay.
I stayed there for couple of days and really enjoyed it. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, good location - in the heart of Manhattan, the Bus terminal location is very close, just cross the road.
Good choice if your want to compare Quality& Price.

I stayed at this hotel for one night and can't complain about anything, the rooms were very clean and I had a great view on the 20th floor. When I arrived the staff was especially very helpful and pleasant especially, the bellman Jonathan, was especially very informative, helpful and very handsome!

from the moment i walked through the doors at this hotel i was welcomed by all the staff, has a friendly atmosphere and homely feeling. very trendy boutique hotel. Would defo recommend breakfast at least once the distikt hash breakfast is lovely. our room was just as we seen on the web no hidden secrets. I often asked the staff for assistance and they couldnt have been any friendlier. five mins walk to times square and majority of the sites. when in town buy a new york pass defo worth the money.
