“Ac broken and no wifi”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We asked to be moved and they said no rooms available, dying of heat all night. And worse....no wifi so no iPad streaming. The room is tiny, were on the 12th floor which is fine. Biggest problem is a broken ac, for what we pay it's ridiculous that I'm awake at 5am because I'm dying of heat.

We only stayed 2 nights, but this was a great pick. Walking distance to Empire State Building, Penn Station, Times Square and Macy's. The room was small & quite old, with no views from the windows. The bathroom was tiny, but everything was clean, and we were only going to be at the hotel to sleep. The staff were very friendly, and even though breakfast wasn't available, the offer of tea/coffee and a muffin was a great option before our very early morning pickup.

Quite a convenient location. At night a lot of young Koreans come out as the area is close to Manhattan's Koreatown, the block of 32nd street between 5th and 6th Ave. During the day, Dunkin Donuts and Subway are close by. Very easy to get around. The building is historic and pleasant to the eyes, and the walls block out the noise of the city. You get a great value for the cost.

Me and my son spend 4 nights here. We really liked the hotel and especially the great location. Would visit it again. The hotel is location two blocks from the empire state and everything you need is at a ten minute walk max.
