“Very nice stay in a good location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

This was a a stay on a world trip and I pre booked this accommodation due to previous reviews as well as the location and proximity to transport and attractions. The rooms are comforable and I particularly stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was adequate for the number of people. Bathroom facilities are average, and the showers are hot. The catering facilities at the accommodation are pricy, like most places in a city however the amount of food you get is good value. Reception staff are friendly, knowledgable and offer advice on trips, attractions as well as good places to eat and drink. I would recommend this accommodation because of its location, value and friendly staff as well as it being located in a safe neighbourhood. Enjoy your stay!

The hotel is in a perfect location, close to the the 5th avenue, the empire state building and is easy access to the subway. The room was tiny but clean, we had some problem with the heather that did some strange noise.

The hotel has an excellent position close to 2 subway stops and in the very centre of Manhattan. It is clean and comfortable and provides a quite good room service. The staff is always at disposal for any kind of question or problem and it is also very kind and helpful. You can get there also information about places to visit, restaurants and so on.

We arrived cold, no bags on Christmas Eve. The front office staff were friendly and got us into our room quickly. Both the front desk and cleaning staff were brilliant all trip. Rooms are comfortable with very comfortable beds.

Everyone at this hotel is so helpful and the location is excellent! It's a little shabby but the staff and location make up for it. The halls can be a bit noisy so if you are very sensitive to this you might want to look elsewhere.

A room with a view it was not, a four star hotel, not in atmosphere. But what it lacks in beauty it makes up in grace. Great service, friendly staff, clean rooms, soft beds and a flat screen tv. Good price and location.

A good value in lower midtown Manhattan. Clean & well run. Not fancy or luxurious , but a nice place to stay at a reasonable price. The adjoining cafe serves good quality food. The location is easy walking to to many of NYC's most popular attractions.
