“Yo much fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Yotel is for travellers looking for accomodations that are a wee bit different. I've stayed in NYC dozens of times at upscale, old school hotels. This way a 3 day trip and the first NYC visit for my 12 year old son. Yotel is in a great location and close to all the tourist action. Be prepared for your room to be tiny -much like the cabin of a cruise ship. Rooms are all white and reminiscent of IKEA/ swedish design where they have made excellent use of every nook and cranny. There were two of us and one suitcase so there was enough room. More than 3 days would have been tough in such a small space.
Yotel has the best outdoor space in Manhattan. Even if you are not staying there - make sure you visit the grassed outdoor balcony that seats about 80 people. Food is great!
My only error was that I took a left on the way out the main door bound for the theatre and walked under a bridge ...lots of homeless people yelling profanities at us. The doorman should have known not to recommend that we take that route.

Room Tip: Ask for a floor with a fully functional kitchen . Our floors coffee machine was broken.

Green Features: excellent. There was an obvious attempt to be 'green'

Super cool hotel with a great location and a great vibe. Stayed here as part of a 4 day stop in the Big Apple. From the moment I arrived I knew I'd made the right choice. Friendly and attentive staff were there to greet me along with a great vibe and cool background music. You couldn't ask for a better location, nearly smack bang in the middle of Manhattan and minutes from Time Square. Be sure to check out the terrace bar of an evening because the view is pretty awesome to!

This is really a fun place - cool, young hotel.
Close to Times Sq - some 4 blocks away. The walk crosses a pretty good neighborhood, lots of people, not dangerous.
Rooms are fun although I don't particularly enjoyed the bathroom door (glass door and did not go all the way up to the ceiling ) well you could talk to your room mate while sitting in the toilet. But this seems to be a feature of trendy hotels, I've seen it in a 5 star too.
On each floor there's a room where you can use a fridge, get free cool water and free coffee, and there's a vending machine.
The bar downstairs is a lot of fun and they offer great snacks at a reasonable price. The place gets bustling at night but we had no noise issue whatsoever.
They also have free muffins and coffee in the morning, really good.
Check in and out, fully automated, was really easy.
All personnel is extremely nice too.

Room Tip: The hotel offers larger rooms, and corner rooms for 4 have 2 bunk beds, a really good space for fami...

Nice, clean, friendly, minimalistic hotel. Location all right as base for exploring Manhattan. Had a premium view cabin with queen bed. Small but well laid out room, though the bathroom offered little privacy. Firm bed which we liked. Would recommend this place for friends.

This hotel is situated in a great area with proximity to times square. The atmosphere in the hotel is very good and even though the terraced area is open for bar use there is no noise in bedrooms. The folding bed is amazing and gives a lot of space in the room. The galley on each floor was very useful for much needed water and ice during the hot summer. There was a good range of muffins and coffee free each morning and even gluten free muffins on some mornings. Staff were always helpful. The rooms were fairly clean but could have been cleaner. There was a lot of dust around the tv area, white plastic surfaces were stained and shower base was stained. I enjoyed my stay here.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, absolutely no complaints.

Hotel is clean, stylish, feels very welcoming. The staff were very kind and friendly. The room was a little small, but nothing to ruin the experience.

Excellent location, to boot, really close to Times Square, 42nd and subway. Highly recommend it.

Great location, just 5 minutes from Times Square. And like everyone else, yes the bed is very hard but the rooms are quirky but functional for a couple
If you want privacy from your partner in the bathroom, you're out of luck!!!!!!!!!!

Staff were extremely helpful and polite

The bars and the food were very good too

Room Tip: Pay extra to get a better room and you'll be rewarded
