Stayed for one night in a premium room with a view. My husband and I were there to see a play and visit NYC for two days. The price and location were good since we were traveling by bus and arrived at the nearby Port Authority. The walk is easy although a little complicated by traffic entering the Lincoln Tunnel. I suggest walking over to 10th and walking down to the hotel. Lots of bars and restaurants on 10th also. The service was great, the room comfortable, the hotel really interesting. I loved the large open gathering area on the 4th floor. It was comfortable and attractive. Elevators were fast. Ate some appetizers in the bar at night - alcoholic drinks were strong and tasted great. Food was so-so. There are complementary muffins (delicious) and coffee/tea in the a.m. Can also order reasonably priced eggs, yogurt, fruit, and other options. Easy to meet people. Would be a great place for business travel or someone traveling alone. Great free wifi. Lots of cute amenities in the rooms. Recommendations for improvement: towels are skimpy, ask for extras since the shower is great! Beds (futons?) are a little hard but pillows were great. Good, reliable, very quiet air conditioning unit. The "cabin" (room) was very quiet. We were up high on the 18th floor. Nice view of the river from our room. I would have liked bars of soap instead of refillable dispensers at sink and in shower. Free coffee/tea/purified water on each floor at all times. Hope to return and get a corner room with more space next time. Check it out for yourself!

Room Tip: Get a view - I didn't any other rooms but since they are small - you'll want a view. We wer...

Dear Catsaresmarter,

Thank you for choosing us for your one night stay. Glad you enjoyed the river view and the amenities we offer. I agree with you the drinks are great on the 4th floor in our East & West restaurant. We do have a reasonable priced breakfast with many options as well as the complimentary muffins. Our 4th floor (FOUR) does have alot of appeal with the purple colors and music playing in the background giving an upbeat enviroment. We are currently testing out different mattress's to make sure all guests are sleeping comfortably. We hope to have news very soon. Again thank you for staying with us and hope you ill choose to stay with us in the future.

Sincerely

Great location. Small cabin style rooms are a great base for exploring the city. Keep it neat and you'll be fine. Excellent views even from the bathroom! Modern twist in amongst the traditional New York hotel offerings.

Very hip, high tech hotel in Hells Kitchen. Great terrace for relaxing in the evening and great views from the upper floors. Bed was very comfortable and although the room was smallish, it didn't lack any amenities. It was very convenient to Times Square and specifically the theater I was attending. The hotel staff were all very helpful and knowledgeable and the car service to the airport was fantastic! The Yobot service was great considering I had to checkout at 11:00am but wasn't heading to the airport until 2:00pm. Lots of great eateries and shops within a short walk. I bet you'd be hard pressed to find a pricier hotel with the same level of service. Great Value!

Room Tip: upper floors have a great view

I'll definitely stay in this hotel when I go back to NY. Great location, 24*7 hot drinks, yummy muffins in the morning. Loved the decor of the room. Easy check-in, checkout. For 2 $, we could also store our luggage after we checked out.

I stayed here only because I wanted to stay in the same hotel as an associate. I was expecting to hate it because it is exactly the opposite of my favourite NYC hotels... Small and impersonal. But I was pleasantly surprised.

The staff are super-friendly (including, desk, bar and everyone I came in contact with) and the rooms are small but extremely well designed. They remind me of a cabin on a boat. Because the coffee on each floor was so good... I ALMOST forgot I had to put on clothes each morning to get it. If muffins were in the same place... instead of downstairs... I would have completely forgiven and forgotten.

If I had to be on the West side again... I would definitely stay here. I didn't hate it at all... And it was certainly affordable.

Yotel has a mechanical arm, those robots from the automotive industries, that stores your luggage if your room is not ready. That defines pretty much the hotel: fancy, hi-tech and young.

I personally don't recommend it for families w/ children. But it's perfect for single people and couples at the 15-30 age.

The room is very small, but the all the furniture is designed to serve a purpose, some hidden drawers, the automatic bed that almost turns itself into a sofa, all is made to free some room. There was no refrigerator in my room, but as many american hotels, there are some common amenities such microwave oven, ice machine, a refrigerator (it's public, I did not have the guts to use it as it was storing a questionably old blue cheese inside!), coffee and tea, all free off charge (except for the vending machine), at the end of each hallway.

The hotel room is pretty much a single space, all is divided by glass walls (using the bathroom is awkward if there's someone else inside). On the positive side, everything is very clean.

The downside, there's no restaurant and no room service, if you're hungry and it's late, you have to leave the hotel to eat, or gonna eat the extremely expensive finger food served in the lobby bar.

But, the staff is great and friendly, and is well located, like 5 blocks from Times Square.

Good wi-fi.

Dear Newton H,

Thank you for staying with us. As you mentioned some of our cabins are 170 square feet and the space is used efficiently. We do offer larger cabins for those guests that require a larger space especially if coming in with family members. There is a galley on each floor that all guests have access too with their cabin keys which includes the microwave, refrigerator, ice machine and vending machine for convenience. We apologize that you were not aware of the restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. While we do not offer room service there are other options in the neighborhood that offer deliveries to the hotel after midnight and a 24 hour deli a block away from us. Glad to hear our staff was great and attentive.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and we hope to see you again in the future

Sincerely
