“Great Find!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Wow. So happy we found this lovely, small hotel! Great location, great value, and incredibly nice people who work here! We stayed in a suite, with a connecting room for the kids, perfect family set-up. Lovely little restaurant attached, where they offer a complimentary continental breakfast, and have a menu available, but we equally loved it for dinner - yummy Italian. Did I mention great location? Easy walk to 5th Avenue, Central Park, and Times Square. We'll definitely be back!!!

Stayed for 5 nights, impressed with the suite. A bit of noise, but it's NYC, what do you expect? Breakfast was basic, bagels, fruit, coffee but perfectly adequate. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location just south of Central Park ideal.

Excellent location to Central Park and mid Manhattan. Staff were friendly and room facilities were about right for the price. Internet is free however I'd avoid the complimentary continental break and head out for 1 mins walk to Astro dinner. Overall very impressed and happy to stay again when in NY

An excellent hotel, in the middle of midtown. Large rooms, very convenient and gives a home away from home feeling. Very attentive service. The only fault was the breakfast which was under our expectations. We had to wait for place and for basic stuff such as bagels... Otherwise it would be a perfect ten out of ten. Recommended for a stay in Manhattan.

All chuffed up to have chosen this hotel to stay in after staying in a much bigger hotel with spacious rooms.I booked a one bedroom suite and was pleased by the size and the layout. This is a quaint, strategically located, old school decor hotel with very pleasant staff, most unusual for New York.
Room service, housekeeping and check in was prompt and efficient. There was a bit of a disaster during my stay which the hotel management promptly corrected with a smile and poise.
This gem does have one flaw though for which it got a 9 out of a 10 and that of course was the breakfast as other guests have written about. The choices are very few, service is lacklustre and seating is limited. But I will still come back and ignore that flaw as I enjoyed my stay to the fullest.

The Blakely seems almost European. It is filled with guests from all over the world. It has a small lobby. We get a room that has a king bed with a kitchenette (which we don't use) because it is a little bigger and looks south to many buildings. The hotel is not luxurious or glamerous but the location is the best. There is a subway station at the end of the block. The Theater Discrict, Fifth Avenue and Central Park are all within easy walking distance. The staff at the hotel is not large but they are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast comes with the room, and it is not great but just ok. The pasteries, cereals and fruit are all not first rate. It is possible to pay to order a full breakfast from the menu.

Room Tip: GEt at least a king room.
