This is a hotel that was originally designed for working class people who lived there permanently. You have to share a bathroom. Plus the decor is extremely dark and gloomy.
Otherwise it is a perfectly OK place to stay if you can stand a small room. Everything was very clean and the housekeeping was excellent. Seldom a wait for the elevator and no waits for the several, very tidy bathrooms. It's on a quiet, tree lined street near Union Square. I lived in NYC for twenty years and never head any mention of this hotel. It is probably the best bargain in Manhattan. I paid a low rate, lower than other hotels in Queens and New Jersey.
This is an especially good choice for young people who can ignore the depressing decor. Never found any place cheaper in NYC and certainly not with this level of cleanliness.
