The Hotel @ New York City
Ranked #318 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Last week we stayed here for 8 nights. The price is good for what you get. Perfect location in midtown manhatten, close to the 6 line metro and within walking distance of empire state building and times square.
Breakfast is an nice extra, not very luxe but it gets you trough the morning.
The bed sleeps very well and shower is powerfull.

we would recomend this hotel to everybody who wants an hotel with good location and not to much money.

Reviewed 5 June 2014

We stayed here for our second trip to New York in May/June 2014. The hotel was booked for us by our trip organiser (we did a multi-centre trip so used eShores to book it all for us), I doubt we would have picked out the hotel ourselves but the price was great so we went with it.
When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist was not very efficient, I found her difficult to understand and am still not sure what the extra charge of $14 we were asked for was all about, she told us nothing about the services within the hotel e.g. Breakfast times, business facilities, ice machines etc. indeed it wasn't until our very last day that we found out there were computers with a printer etc. available in the basement.
I had asked for a high floor if possible as I had read reviews about noise and also that higher rooms may have a view of the ESB, we were put on the 6th floor, not exactly high but I did understand it was only a request. Our room was very comfortable, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the shower amazing, I was disappointed not to have a fridge available but there was an ice machine on our floor so not a deal breaker. It was noisy but ear plugs sorted that out very effectively.
Breakfast wasn't much good to me as I'm gluten intolerant and it was almost all unsuitable for me, again not a deal breaker, we found an excellent diner nearby and had our breakfast there.
The area is vibrant and depending on which direction you walk in there is pretty much every style of eatery and bar within a few blocks. Sights are easy with short walks to Grand Central Station, Chrysler Building, Empire State Building etc.
I doubt there is a better value hotel in as good a location as this one, my one and only complaint was with the reception staff and the lack of information they provided

Rugs were stained, room was very uncomfortable with only one desk chair that was precarious and the ironing board was broken.
The dining room in the Lower Level was uninviting as access was past Housekeeping and the dirty laundry.
Since the location on Lexington Avenue was perfect for our appointments we thought we could rely on the Ramada name. Never, never again.

Dear Virginia C,
Thank you for your review. Our staff does a very good job of cleaning all rooms thoroughly. We will certainly look into the stain on the carpet. We did find the broken ironing board and have since replaced it. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. In the future, we will happily replace anything broken in the room or move you to a different room if you ask us during your stay.
The breakfast room is temporarily located on the lower level due to renovations in the lobby. It is usually located right off the lobby. We do apologize for this inconvenience and we will ensure that guests do not have to pass by dirty laundry.
We hope you will give us another chance in the future. The majority of our guests are very happy with their stay and many return on multiple occasions.
Liz from Apple Core Hotels

I stayed here while visiting my sister and it was a great location and close to everything. The room was neat, clean and comfortable. I had a nice view along with a mini fridge and microwave. The free breakfast is a nice perk too. I would definitely stay here again or recommend it to anyone going to NYC who wanted to be close to shopping and dining. It is in a nice neighborhood area and I felt safe walking around on my own.

Room Tip: I was in 708 and it was cozy and perfect sized for 1 or 2 people. It can get noisy due to sirens an...

If you like Indian food this is the place to stay, lots of restaurants and deliveries India style. We stayed for a week a couple of months ago, at first we were apprehensive because the price indicated a below average room but much to our surprise the stay was great, small rooms with very comfortable beds, very clean. The staff was correct, wi-fi didn't work very well in our room, a very good shower in a small bathroom. Very good hotel for those on a budget. Good value.

A group of 6 adults from ireland stayed here mid feb , we could not fault this hotel at all amazing value by new York standards rooms were spotless with very comfy beds and working air condition, breakfast was a nice bonus as most new York hotels don't serve breakfast ,the subway was only a 5 minute walk , the wifi signal was excellent ,if you are looking for a great value hotel which is quite central and convenient to the subway look no further, we have already booked this hotel for next feb we loved it,

Fantastic value for money....
The staff are very friendly and accommodating, always say hello with a smile.
Maid service great, room always clean.
Stayed here 7 nights and to come back after walking miles and miles to a tempur mattress is a little bit of heaven.
Breakfast was great, sets you up for the day
Room has hair dryer, coffee machine, iron, iPod docking station/alarm clock FREE safe, and air conditioning
This hotel was better than expected, And my sister and I would return here again
