Washington Jefferson Hotel
Ranked #284 of 473 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Very close to Times Square theaters, Central Park, Midtown. I would stay there again. Rooms are small, but reasonably comfortable. I got the medium sized room, I would not recommend the smallest room option. A bit noisy from the street.

Clean place to spent the night.
The room is basic, no mini bar, tiny desk no room for studies.no room service. No dining room. They do have a fitness room can be used to maintain your body, nothing more. The stuff members are very nice and Michael from guest services is extremely nice and helpfull. The location is apearently the best feature about this place. Close to to everywhere that matters . according NYC srandards LOCATION is all that matters

As other reviewers have said, the location can hardly be beat. If you are on your own, travel pretty light, and are in The City for theatre it's terrific. Rooms are small but clean. Mine had no closet but a wardrobe and two pieces of furniture with drawer space. If you travel with several suitcases you may not be happy here. Had a great bargain after getting an upgrade as a result of a reservation mixup. Staff is friendly, helpful, and efficient.

I spent 8 nights at this hotel from the 16th to the 24 of December.

It is only a few minutes walk to Times Square and the Broadway musicals, and literally round the corner from the blue line 51st subway, and I got an excellent value for money offer: Eur98 per night including all taxes (you can get a refund for the taxes at the airport, I didn't have time to do that, but you may want to do so).

My room was very clean and tidy, the bathroom was brand new, with lovely lavender scented toiletries (new set every day) and plenty of fluffy towels.

I got a bit scared when I read the tripadvisor comments, so that I almost canceled my booking, but kept it because of the value for money, hoping they would be wrong.

I am happy to say that my experience was 100% positive:

_There were no residents in my corridor (my room number was 111)

_The bathroom was not too small, and the shower was not too small

_My room was not tiny, it was actually a good size

_They only charged my credit card once, not twice

_The hotel staff were professional, sweet and friendly

_The cleaners cleaned everything very well, every day

_My room had a cabinet for my clothes, an iron, and an iron board, a hairdrier

_I did not meet any bad people in this hotel, and I felt very safe

_The hotel asked me if I wanted somebody to turn the heating down,
but I prefered to open the windows when the heating was too high,
the window open and close easily, which is useful also to get some fresh air
in the room

I hope people are not put off by the negative comments as I was,because
it would be a shame to loose the opportunity to get a good price in such
a good location.

Good luck!

Room Tip: My room was very good, number 111

Central to everything. This small hotel was very clean and convenient. Although some rooms are quite small, they are decorated beautifully, and even the compact bathrooms seem so elegant. I would definitely stay here again.

We could not have asked for more. Without the upgrade we got, the first room we were given would have been good only if we had come in at night and gone to bed. The upgraded room was spacious and very comfortable
