What a great hotel, recommended by my travel agent (Trailfinders) really impressive lobby, great room, even a heated toilet seat! Attentive staff at breakfast with good selection to suit all. Close to the fantastic Grand Central station as well as 5th Avenue and walking distance to the Subway. If visiting NYC, please check out this hotel.

Room Tip: I was on the 6th floor where the room was VERY acceptable.Don't rely too much on the concierge a...

Very nice place to spend a night at NYC! Good beds, silent rooms and a nice AC. Japanese toilet is a nice touch. Decoration is a bit dated, but other than that very pleasant stay. Location is also ideal. Will be back!

Spent two nights at the Kitano and everything was perfect. They let us check in at 10:30am with not problem and check out one hour late as well. The location is the best, near the subway, Fifth Avenue, many neighborhood restaurants on Lexington and 3rd Avenues. The room was exceptionally quiet, we never heard even a beeping horn. All the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. I don't have one complaint. If you are able to take advantage of a special rate offer, it's a great deal as well.

Room Tip: Join the I Prefer Club and get free wifi and early check in and check out if available

Great location three blocks from grand Central and only two blocks from my office. The hotel is quiet. Easy in and out. No fuss no muss. The front desk is functional. No security at the elevator (no key required) in case that is of interest. Elevators are quite but I always request farthest form elevator.

there is an in-residence jazz band that plays here - they rotate acts. Quiet good- great crowd nice and intimate.

Breakfast is functional - standard fare - with some Japanese standards (oh, did I mention this hotel caters to Japanese visitors).

The internet was intermittent on the wifi but pretty fast by wire.

Rom adequate- bathroom clean. It is a simple stay. I would stay again.

We stayed here for four nights and were very happy with our stay. The staff at front desk very friendly and welcoming. The room was very spacious for NYC and had all the usual facilities, even a brolly incase of any rain! The room was very quiet, no traffic noises, and we were lucky to have a view of the Empire State Building. The location was great- just a short walk of about 5 minutes to Grand Central from which we could jump on the subway to get about, plus within walking distance of Empire State and other mid town attractions. We didn't eat or drink at the hotel, the menus seemed a little pricey, but we find we preferred to eat outside of the hotel anyway to try as many different places as possible. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: can ask if possible for Empire State view

We were very very satisfied with our trip to The Kitano in New York. Everybody we encountered at the front desk was very polite and professional, they even upgraded our room because it was our honeymoon, and provided us with a complimentary bootle of wine. Room service was great. If we ever go back to New York we will definitely stay at the Kitano again. The proximity to Grand Central was great, and it was in a great part of town. Thanks for the great experience Kitano.

We stayed at the Kitano in April with two other couples for a special weekend birthday celebration. Our room was good sized for New York, and the location was really convenient -- 4 blocks from Grand Central. The check-in was fine, and they honored our request to all be on the same floor. Our room faced a side street, so no real view, but it was really quiet and plenty of light. The decor was fine, if not inspired. Clean and comparable to a nice Marriott or Hyatt. The bathroom was lovely -- nice deep tub so that soaking was possible, something quite rare these days. Our bed was a bit soft, but overall comfortable. The amenities are fine -- a nice restaurant/bar where we had brunch and listened to some jazz on Sunday. Overall a very good option for a visit to NYC.
