“In the heart of Manhattan”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Great location, nice apartment, friendly staff. The only drawback: we were on the third floor and the street noise was quite loud. OK at night, and if you're an early riser. Spacious and clean. Perfect place for an enjoyable stay in Manhattan.

Love this place! Jeff & the staff are the best & understand customer service. My home away from home in NYC. Love the rooms all suites or one bedrooms. Excellent for the business traveller. Great location between 5&6 on 59th.

Just spent a week at this hotel/apartment & was very pleased with the premium suite. Clean stylish premises in great location just one street over from Central Park. Walking distance to Columbus Circle & other attractions.
Apartment had full kitchen, very large living room & bedroom with lots of closet space & great Calif. king size bed! Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly both in the hotel & their attached A Cafe.
Our usual waiter Timothy was particularly delightful & efficient. Obviously destined for a great career as part of the AKA hospitality team
Only complaint is the apartment kitchen doesn't have any basic complimentary supplies like salt, pepper,milk, coffee & tea. Would be just perfect if these items were included for your arrival.
Will definitely return to this establishment & recommend if to anyone who was looking for a home away from home.

Room Tip: Room service is available from the A Cafe, however their are hundreds of restaurants that deliver...

Aka is in the heart of NYC.
One BDR was very large by NYC standards,nice well equipped kitchen. Walk in closet with safe.
Comfortable king bed.Clean.
No view , we had a view of a complex of aircons from the building next door plus some pigeons.
Just as well since you can hardly open the window.
The inside airon was working well but was rather noisy but we got used to it
Stuff is helpful and nice. Cleaner do a good job.
The AKA cafe in the complex make decent breakfast and lunch.
There is a fitness centre ,no pool
We spotted bevy of celebs while there including Fergie with her entourage.

Room Tip: See if you can get a higher rooms facing 58 street,you may have to pay more

It's AKA apartment is good, and close to Central Park. The only problem is the standard weekly cleaning service since it's not a hotel! I stayed for 2 weeks in Jan... Room is great and big, which is good compared to the other tiny rooms of NY hotels. I cannot say there is any views because the apartment building is not that tall. The service level of the staff was also fine and nice, willing to help too.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 week stay at AKA Central Park in May. The suite was large by global standards, letalone for New York. Kitchen was well appointed for preparing a small meal, but with so much happening in the area including Central Park, 5th Avenue and Hell's Kitchen, all within walking distance, I didn't spend too much time there....

Great room, so clean and close to new! So much better than expected! Staff are so friendly and helpful with a big smile. A bit noisy due to building renovation across the road but quiet at night. We had a suite deluxe and the kitchen utensils and pots were more than we've been anywhere else. Just awesome! 2 minute walk to Central Park and 15 minute walk to Times Square so perfect!
