“Friendly staff; tiny rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

I stayed four nights in April. Positives: friendly staff, clean, great location, no street noise, nice but small lobby.
Negatives: very small room, two twin beds (too short for my friend who is 5'9"), elevator was very small PLUS the outer door didn't open (except on first floor) unless you pushed it. It would have been very helpful if there was a sign indicating to push the door open, once the elevator doors open. I came close to a panic attack...Convenient to subway, Central Park, 5th Avenue Shops and Theatre District. I don't plan on staying here again, though.

Room Tip: Our rooms were away from the street; did not hear any street noises (sirens, horns, traffic). That w...

I stayed here for 5 nights in April. If I'm honest I was not wholly impressed with the hotel as the beds were extremely uncomfortable and the lift was constantly breaking down - being on the sixth floor I was not impressed and this was not a good first impression.
The service was friendly and the staff were very helpful though so that did help and I don't want to take anything away from them.
The key selling point for this hotel is the location. It is within walking distance to the Rockefeller, Central Park and Times Square which is perfect, especially for a first timer to the Big Apple!

I have stayed here for many years because of the excellent value, genuine hotel staff-always a big smile from these dear people, and great location.
A large and varied selection of restaurants nearby, including Maria Pia across from the hotel. And they deliver.

Very good hotel, well located, excellent services and customer attention for a reasonable price. Close to the main attractions in NYC: Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Broadway and Central Park. Easy access to subway.

Such a quaint little hotel that is off the beaten path but within walking distance to Time Square & Central Park. We also enjoyed the Jacuzzi bathtub each night after walking all over NYC. A great way to end each day!

it was a nice stay for a week but there was so noise during sleep hours early in the morning (5-9am). The location is perfect to visit Manhattan, well connected with underground (2 minutes walking). Quite clean.

We went to New York for 10 days and stayed to Washington Jefferson. The hotel is on average ok.

Positive points: Location, close to Time Square, restaurants and laundry.

Negative points: small room, small bathroom, noisy room, internet was not working properly.
