“Good for short term”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

The apt is same as shown in the pictures. there are all facilities available as advertised like wifi , good kitchen, all utensils , but there is little noise but not too much on higher floors.Cleaning fees they take of 58$ and they will not change/clean the apt during your stay, Only one clean will be done before you enter the apt. Maintainace service is not available 24 hrs.Only a security guard will be there 24 hrs and he will give you the keys for checkin/checkout. He will take your complaints but those complaints will be handled during office hours of hotel between 10am to 6pm approx.

Fortunately i did not have any problems/complaints during 3 days stay. But I requested them to clean toiltet after second day due to some smell and they refused to do that,They said it will be extra charges for cleaning in between. Apartment location wise is good , just 1 block away from port authority bus station and subway and 2 blocks away from times square. All restaurant are also nearby.

Negative: you have to pay about $58 for cleaning service (after you leave), mind they don’t change towels or clean the room during your stay. Too noisy from outside of both sides – Port Authority with the buses running 24 hrs and construction from the other side. The higher your room is, the better, but ear plugs are the must for light sleeper (not joking). Approaching the location, neighborhood looks dirty, until you realize that it’s the same pretty much everywhere – Broadway and around.
Positive: Location is perfect: about 5-8 min to Broadway and 5th Ave, 10 min to the Times Square, 40 min to the Central Park – we walked everywhere. Flea market is a couple of blocks away on Sat & Sun. You are on the 9th Ave and Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is on the 12th – 10 min walk!
If you arrive to Newark and take Olympia Trails Express Bus – only 5 min if not less to walk from Port Authority station, same if you take this bus back. Thanks for this advice to the NY advisers! The bus is prompt and comfortable.
The rooms are very clean, linen and towers are good quality. I happened to stay in “old” room and renovated. As long as renovated has quite updated facilities, nothing is wrong at all with non-renovated. I amused with the marble window counters and bathroom marble porches in both locations. They have kitchenette with good dishes, mugs, wine glasses, microwave, toaster, coffee – maker (maybe take your coffee from home?). Out of all advices regarding grocery stores and markets around, the most convenient and the price is same, limited selection of course, but so handy – Seven 11 is the closest – about 2 blocks and on the way. The “Well Green Market” across the street – prices almost double!

Room Tip: The higher your room is, the better

This place was ideally located for times square! After reading the reviews on here I expected a noisy place, so packed my ear plugs!!! I didn't need them, I just closed the bedroom windows, problem solved! The place could've been cleaner but that wasn't a huge issue. The door staff were awesome and very helpful!

We stayed at Metro Apartments for 3 nights. We were able to stay in one of the renovated rooms and it was outstanding. It was a little off of the beaten path, but we only had to walk less than two blocks to get to Times Square and all of the action.
Don't be nervous when you check-in as the lobby area is not completed yet therefore it isn't very nice but the new area looks beautiful.
The front desk staff was very friendly and even told us about a great litlte event to attend down the street.
We had 6 girls in a one bedroom apartment and it worked out great. The staff brought up a roll away bed and then someone slept on the couch. It was perfect.
The best part of the apartment was the fabulous view from our balcony. It was so nice to stand outside at night and see the city.
I would stay at Metro again. It was clean, staff was nice and great location. I have been to NYC several times and this was a wonderful place to stay.
Some of the other reviews say that it is loud, but all of New York City is loud. The construction workers were done around 6p and didn't start until 7 or 8, but unless the door was open we could not hear them!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a the One Bedroom apartments, they are all newly rennovated and clean with a ki...

I just did a girl's vacation to NY and 6 of us stayed in a room at Metro Apartments and each of us thought this place was wonderful. The location was great, it had a balcony, a great view, the staff was nice/helpful and it was very roomy for 6 people. The room looked just like the pictures shown (2 queen beds, room 10A). Even though there was traffic and construction right outside we could not hear it if we had the balcony door shut. I would recommend this place for sure. Right now the main lobby area is getting redone so where you go to check-in seems somewhat grungy so don't let that scare you away...the rooms make up for it!

We have stayed here for 4 night in May. I have tried to request beforehand ‘a modernised’ room, however there is no reception desk, just a security guard and when we arrived we were given our keys after we had to pay the $57 + tax cleaning fee. There was no awareness of any requests.
The cleaning fee has to be paid in cash.
The furnishing in our room was really old and cluttered, not very clean, in spite of the fee ...
During our 4 nights stay there was no cleaning at all, not even the bins were emptied.
The noise was really bad, our room was overlooking a very busy flyover with constant lorry and bus traffic day and night. The old air conditioning unit was also terribly noisy and ineffective.
On the plus side the location is good and there was functioning free wifi in the room.
I guess you get what you pay for and for Manhattan it wasn’t expensive.
I would not stay here again, would rather be further out in a decent place.
