Ameritania Hotel
Ranked #121 of 473 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 6 June 2012

For New York hard to go past location for price.
Old building Recently renovated rooms Contempory Decor
Small but comfortable.
All areas of NYC easily accessible by walking 5-10mins to broadway/times square
Service ok from staff in terms of requests
Rooms clean
Only noise was street noise through window but you expect that with New York 24/7 traffic
Would stay here again due to low price and great location

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a view

On the up side the hotel was in a perfect location,within walking distance to most sites,central park, empire state and rockerfellar, right on corner of broadway and times square within view outside hotel to the right. modern chic decor and spotlessly clean, crisp white linen and fluffy white towels, very comfortable bed and excellent rain fall shower. We welcomed the AC as it was hot and humid during our stay.
Door man geoff was very helpful with local knowledge and arranged our return trip to the airport. The down side however
Was, We were very disappointed with the room we stayed in it was a standard double facing the back of the hotel with no view at all, couldn't even see what the weather was doing outside, felt we were cocooned in. When shown our room we were told not to open the windows because of the birds who sit on window ledges. There was no clothes hanging space in the room, it was too small!! Only one draw to share between two!! Very large mirror which took up most of one wall, floor to ceiling, although trendy and looking nice the space could have been put to better use! Very limited space even walking around the bed let alone getting the ironing board out and having to negotiate your luggage at the same time!
Also be aware that when checking in they demand $250 up front for incidentals, something we are not used to in the UK.

My wife, Daughter and I stayed at the Ameritania during a weekend trip to New York City. We needed special accomodations for our daughter and they were promptly answered by the Manager, Erin Becker. She checked in with us the next day to assure everything was to our liking. Every individual we had contact with at the Ameritania was gracious and friendly, Mourad, the doorman even knew us by name. I would highly reccomend this Hotel to anyone traveling to the Time Square/Broadway area. Great location, Great Service, all around a delightful experience!

Couldn't recommend it highly enough, especially for the affordable price. We were allowed to check in 8 hours early at no charge and were given a complementary room upgrade without even requesting it. The hotel was recently remodeled and has great contemporary decor. The location was perfect, right between Times Square and Central Park.

I'm not claustrophobic, but I'm also cost-conscious. It was the best deal for the weekend of the NFL Draft in late April. However, there was literally 18 inches on both sides of the bed, while seated my knees touched the wall opposite the toilet, and the only way to iron was to lay the board out on the bed.
Otherwise, the decor was contemporary, the guests and staff enlightening and international. Though I found it odd that when I asked for the nearst bar, 1) they didn't recommend their own bar, and 2) they didn't recommend the bar next door - Three Monkeys - which was a pretty cool place all its own.

Room Tip: If you're an average size adult or larger, be sure to negotiate for the largest room possible.

I reserved this hotel for a recent trip with my parents. The hotel has a perfect location. The rooms was very modern, new and clean. The bathroom shower was perfect after a long day of city tour, the shower head is a hit. Staff was very helpful and nice, they helped me get a taxi the last day to go to the airport. I recommend this hotel 100%.

Beautiful rooms (we had two) and a location that can't be beat. It's a short walk to the Theater District and Times Square, Central Park, and Rockefeller Center.

Only down side - the trendy young hotel staff didn't seem to care that there were apparently homeless youths sleeping on all the lobby sofas. Perfect if you're looking for hungover frat rats and club kids or just want to go straight to your room.

We would gladly stay there again. Perhaps the management will raise the bar for lobby guest behavior.

Room Tip: Ask at the desk. We had two rooms. One was HUGE. The other was tight. Same price.
