“Great Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2006

We stayed at the Kimberly from 6/11 to 6/15/06. Great hotel, location, service!! We were given hotel options by our travel agent and after checking the reviews of all on tripadvisor.com we selected The Kimberly (145 East 50th). The room size was perfect (small apartment size) and very clean. Was better than any other hotel we have stayed in....bed was so comfortable and the down pillows were an extra touch. The hotel staff were very friendly and professional....especially Edgar (night desk) and Ralph (doorman). You can't beat the location as it is close to restaurants, museums, United Nations, etc.. At night we felt it was very safe to walk to dinner or just walk, walk, walk. We ate almost every morning at the New York Luncheonette two doors away....good food at reasonable prices. A block over, AuBonPain is great for pastries, coffee, bagel. Subway entrance is really close to the Kimberly and we took advantage of that by riding to Union Square to Havana Central (delicious Cuban food!) for dinner. If you are looking for a quiet bar/lounge (with windows for people watching) then try Lily's which is just a block over from the hotel. Really can't say enough good things about this hotel. Would definitely stay there again!

I simply will not stay anyplace else. We have lived in NYC and this was the best of returns. The location ,near the Lex subway, the bus, the restaurants, and Bloomies , is wonderful .It is the staff from the doormen , who run the street, to the concierge and all the others who make your stay so enjoyable. Very confortable rooms with storage that is unusual. Beds to die for!

Kimberly is a clean convenient hotel close to the Grayline Tour bus stop and number 6 (1 block) train. We requested a King bed and when we arrived we not only got a King but were upgraded to a suite with a balcany. Did not eat at the restaurant looked good and they do offer room service. Staff was very attentive and always had a smile. Location was good, far enough from Times Square but not to far that you couldn't walk.

My husband and I spent 5 nights here from 5/25 thru 5/30. This was out second stay at the Kimberly and it was again a great experience. We had a one-bedroom suite on the 20th floor overlooking 50th street. Having an in-room safe, two tv's, a full kitchen, and such comfortable beds make this a home away from home. We paid $279 a night plus $10 a day for internet service . . .certainly not cheap . . . but moderately priced for NYC. I'm sure we'll stay there next time we visit the city.

We stayed at the Kimberly Hotel over the Memorial Day Weekend. We loved it.
I went down with two of my friends for a weekend of theatre, dinners and shopping.
Great location and most important a great staff. We had a beautiful room with a terrace and wonderful beds. The comforters and sheets were great.
I plan on coming back here in October.

We arrived very late at night and on the way to the hotel from the airport we were pretty tired from traveling. We arrived at the hotel around midnight and after unloading and checking in, we all felt wide awake. We decided to walk around a little bit, and boy are we glad we did. The area was so alive and we felt safe walking around at that time of night. The subway is right around the corner and everything is so easy to get to from here. Great walking area. You get a great feel of the big city here. The staff was so pleasant the entire time. We stayed on the 28th floor so we didn't hear alot of street noise. The streetnoise we did hear was pleasant sounding because after all, you are in a big city and it's a big part of it. We had a great balcony. Our room had plenty of space and we did not feel cramped at all. We felt it was the size of a small apartment. When I return to NYC, I will plan on staying here again.
