“The perfect place in NYC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

We stay here in May 2012 for 7 nights & 8 days. It was amazing experience, because we were first time in NYC. Moderne Hotel has a great location very close to Central park & 7th Avenue. The room was designed like stylish bedroom. :) Very good for 2 people. But the most greatest in Moderne Hotel was wonderful staff-they can answer to all our questions & sometimes even more.. :) I highly recommend You stay here if You are looking for perfect place in NYC! :)

My husband and I stayed here in October for our honeymoon. We arrived around 7:30 am to drop our bags, and they were able to get us in our room early. At some point that morning our ac stopped working, but they fixed it while we were out and even left us a cupcake for our trouble. All of the staff were amazing- they helped us with the subways and gave recommendations. Our view was of the building next door, but I didn't care. The room was small, but I knew this going in, and I have stayed in smaller. It was relatively quiet our entire stay. My one request- add a small shelf or ledge in the restroom. It made it difficult to balance a hot curling iron on the sink. The location was also great- walking distance to most places. I highly recommend.

1. Great location
2. Wonderful staff, always going the extra mile for you
3. As clean as can be
4. Room is just big enough for a couple with a couple of suitcases
5. Yes: the window faces a wall.. You'd better check the weather on the 40 inch tv
6. Free wifi is a bliss
7. Free lounge with coffee, tea, chilled water 24-7

If you're coming to new york to walk like a sherpa and crash - this is the best choice I've ever had: reaaaaaly good

Will definitely come back to The Moderne!!

This was the second time I had stayed at this hotel in the last 7 months. Very clean, very central and as before Teddy and Victoria the front of house staff were polite, helpful, knowledgeable and fun. I would definitely go back there. The rest of the staff at the hotel are also very helpful and the free tea and coffee together with breakfast cake in the morning are a nice touch. The rooms are nicely decorated and of a very decent size. It really is very near to everything in New York. If there is anything you need to know whilst there, they can either find out for you or provide it. I would strongly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back.

This was our first trip to New York so not sure what to expect, this was not the usual type of hotel we stay in but we were really pleased we decided to choose the Moderne. All of the staff were really friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. It is only a five minute walk from Central Park and only a bit further to Times Square, just don't expect good views from your window. The decor is fabulous and of a very high standard. Although there is no restaurant you get plenty of places to eat just a stones throw from the front door, so getting food is no problem. They do have a nice lounge on the second floor where you get complimentary fresh fruit and hot drinks available 24 hours a day. Between 7 and 10.00am they also provide complimentary cake.
We would recommend this hotel without hesitation, it is so central and convenient for all attractions

The Moderne is a decent hotel in midtown Manhattan, near Columbus Circle. It's convenient to everything in the city, you can walk to the theatres, museums, and Central Park, and it's close to key subway lines. Rooms are modern but very very small. That's to be expected in a midtown hotel, but be prepared. The rooms are recently refurbished, and the designers did a nice job with the small spaces, so the furniture is convenient and works well, but you will find yourself tripping over your bags a bit. The hotel does not offer breakfast, but the staff is courteous, helpful, and very professional. And of course there are many restaurants and diners nearby, so it's not a problem to find food. My room did not have any sort of view, just a tiny window that looked out on a brick wall, I had to go down to the lobby to find out the weather.

Also, for newcomers to New York, be aware that the various hotel taxes add up to an astounding $50 per night, so when the hotel advertises $300 rooms, you'll be paying quite a bit more. New York hotels can bust your budget, but this is a good compromise: a nice affordable hotel in a good location.

Room Tip: Be prepared for a tiny room.

We stayed in this hotel July, 2011. It was the hotel priceline settled on. We were not disappointed, although we had some initial issues that were only of our own making. We weren't sure a smaller boutique hotel was for us. Boy were we supprised! We were treated royally and this hotel made feel we had our own Mahattan apartment. The common room on the second floor always had great refreshments all day and night. We met many fellow guests there and got to know them a little. That doesn't happen in the larger hotels. All the staff couldn't do enough for us and were very helpful. We got on the Regis and Kelly show and it was a blast. All in all a great expereience and I would recommend this hotel for a very different experience in NYC.

Room Tip: Don't go there expecting a view. Go outside and enjoy NYC for your view.
