great hotel in manhattan and most of all... affordable.
the hotel is at a walking distance from Grand Central Station, very clean, wi-fi everywhere, with a fantastic "salvation taco" at the ground floor with food, music and nice people.
great NY view, roof bar, fabolous shower.
rooms are very small, but you don't go to Manhattan to waste time in the hotel.
the cheapest reservation is from the hotel website, and you can cancel it till the last day.
just go there

We had 5 nights, comfortable with a divine roof top bar with great views. Tiny room , normal for New York . Clean , small shower . A great stay in a great location . There is a great diner around the corner in Lexington. This hotel is good if you don't care how small your space can get , but in New York , we spent little time in it apart from sleeping .

We stayed here for 3-nights and loved the place; the décor is young and trendy with everything appearing almost new. The service from the hotel is fantastic we had a problem with our room on the first night (faulty air con unit) and we were moved to another room straight away without any fuss! The location is under 5 minutes from Grand Central station, for the price this place is hard to beat

Located in the heart of Manhattan. To all the attractions on the doorstep. The hotel rooms are very small and as a bed. The rooms are quiet, with no extraneous noise. It has a rooftop bar. Price hotel rooms for New York is quite acceptable. The hotel is suitable for those who do not care the size of the room, but the proximity of important attractions.

My 11yo daughter and I had a mother/daughter weekend for MLK weekend. Her 1st experience of NYC. We shared a double bed room. It was small and quiet but all we needed since we were out exploring from morning till night. We used hotel shuttle from LaGuardia an it was decent. We had a fabulous time and my daughter loves the decor. The concierge desk was amazing with their maps they gave us and recommendations where to go and what subways to take, etc. can't wait to go back!!

Very small rooms, but very nice and clean.

Travellin with my girlfriend I have to choose a two bed room because when I saw the bed for two it scared me, it was like a single bed a little larger. Bathroom ok too.

Very well located, near Grand Central and not to far from times square. The bar on the looby seems very cool.

I could say that I would like to be ther again, but I´ll have to check the rates..

OK first off you must set expectations. This is a POD not a room so I didn't expect to stay there aside from bathing and sleeping and it is more than enough for that. Don't compare this to a hotel ROOM. I thought the place was young and energetic, the bathroom portion of the pod was decked out nicely and was great to wake up to. The hotel staff were friendly and engaging. I found the whole experience to be great cuz I wasn't in NYC to hang out in a hotel room (why would you?).

Definitely be back
