In its favour, this hotel was relatively cheap, in a quiet area with a subway station nearby. The small number of rooms also should have meant a quiet stay. However the stairways are narrow and awkward for luggage, and everything creaked with age, especially the bed, which was a major annoyance. The attempt at a jazz age ambience is successful, and the rooms are laid out attractively, but the hotel is too dark, the manager was difficult to track down and most critically the only shower in the hotel was not on our floor.
If you do stay here the recommendations provided for eating are very good, and there is no need to be concerned about the safety of the location.
