San Carlos Hotel
Ranked #50 of 470 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2014

For the first time in many trips to NYC, I had a room that didn't feel like a shoe-box. The overall room and the bathroom were really a nice change. The hotel is an older hotel, but it was very clean, the staff friendly, and overall very comfortable. If I had to pick on anything it would be that the floors creaked a bit (consider it character)and the water could have been a bit hotter for shaving, but that's being picky. I would stay again.

Very comfortable bed, centrally located for the subway, good sized room and bathroom... and most importantly for this time of year in New York, powerful air conditioning! Also good as wifi is included in the rate, as opposed to many hotels where it costs extra. There is a free breakfast included, although this is very basic.

My husband and I and our three children recently spent three nights at the San Carlos Hotel in the Executive Queen Suite. It was very large and comfortable for all of us, which is often very difficult with a family of five. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and they provided us plenty of towels and blankets. We travel frequently and it is not often I take the time to write a review but the comfort and value offered at this hotel is excellent. We will definitely return next time we are in NYC.

When we visit NYC we always stay at the San Carlos Hotel. Great location, extra clean and very comfortable accommodations and common areas with everything you need at your disposable, and most important, the entire staff is super courteous, efficient, always in excellent spirits and ready to assist in a way possible. I just spent two weeks there with my family and as always, we had a most wonderful time!

Room Tip: For a family trip I recommend an Executive Junior Suite or a One Bedroom Suite. Spacious, two closet...

This is the second time staying here at this cozy location. Staff are cheery and rooms are very spacious. WIFI and continental breakfast are included but give your self time for the breakfast. Seating is limited and many take advantage of the free breakfast. No valet parking and recommended discounted parking garage is on 53rd street. Doorman gladly provided location but not the discounted rate so I parked on 51st.

I just stayed for 15 days in this hotel, and everything was wonderful. Perfect for the price (you´re not going to find super luxury), but everything is super clean, comfortable, and spacious. I stayed in a two room bedroom with my two kids and we fit perfectly, small kitchenette, TWO cosets, two TVs. I think the best part was the staff, the people in the front desk, the bellmen, everyone... almost didn't feel like I was in NY!! the location is good, a block away from the subway. I hope this review helps you make up your mind to stay here...
