“Hotel needs an upgrade!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We stayed at the San Carlos for 3 days in June 2014, in a junior suite.
The hotel location is excellent, staff is great and courteous but the room has a weird smell of old and dirt and so was the room furniture like the sofa chairs. A small improvement on the rooms furniture is must..

The people at the San Carlos hotel are unbelivable, friendly, helpul and caring. The location is excellent and the rooms are perfect. We are a famility of 5 and we had all we needed. I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting New York.
Thanks a lot

Staff is very friendly and welcoming. We arrived early and the room was ready, in just a few minutes we we up in our room (706). This was a double room and we had four in our party. Plenty spacious for us 4, especially considering it's in NYC. There is a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room. Also a drawer with dishes, utensils , and a wine bottle opener. These items came in handy when we bought several cheeses back to the room from Eataly (gourmet market and restaurant). Anything you need, the staff will attend to without hesitation. A++ in my book. Thanks for a memorable stay.

We have stayed in the San Carlos a couple of times and what we like about it are the rooms we have had are a good size, the service is very good, and the location is great. Plus it includes a breakfast. We have always stayed for business, but this is also somewhere I would bring my family.

I stayed in June 2014 and was very pleased to have chosen the San Carlos. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the staff very helpful. The location is good, within reasonable walking distance (for my family, anyway!) of quite a few attractions such as Times Square, Central Park and Bloomingdales. We chose not to have the complimentary continental breakfast because we love diners and there is a great one directly across the street, so I cannot comment on the breakfast but judging by everything else about the San Carlos I'm pretty confident it would be good! One special mention: the Bell Captain was especially helpful in connection with checking out, leaving bags at the hotel for the day and getting a limo to JFK - great service all round but his service stood out particularly!

Nice boutique hotel for family of four. We wanted the extra space and privacy. Front desk and bellhop, maids were very helpful and pleasant. This is not an upscale hotel - our rooms did not have a view and the furnishing was very basic, but the beds were comfortable, everything was very clean, and by New York standards it was reasonably priced. We would come back.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor, back are quieter. They will prepare a basket if you are celebrating something...

My wife and I had a wonderful 4-night stay at San Calos Hotel, NY. The location is good for me, the room was very clean and comfortable. All employees were kind and helpful. The property offers a complimentary continental breakfast, which is very good. WiFi is also complimentary and works perfectly well. The rates charged are absolutely compatible with the services offered. Nice choice for a break in Manhattan. We´ll definitely stay there again next time in the city that never sleeps.

Room Tip: Try the Executive Suites. They´re awesome!
