This will be a super hotel when the refurbishment works are finished. For the moment it's an average place to stay in a fabulous building and a great location. The staff are fine, welcoming and helpful.

Stayed in quite a few Hotels in Manhattan over the years , this is our fave. Great position ,right in the centre of it all, couple of good diners nearby and a little park with squirrels! We had a disapointing ( at first) view facing smack onto the back of another apartment building. One evening i was looking out of our window ,you can see straight into the facing apartments and i watched a somewhat overweight guy try on literally everything in his wardobe ...and sadly nothing fitted . After half an hour he lay on the bed and turned out the light. There were hundreds of other well lit stories like this but i had tickets for a gig so i tore myself away....Anyway the staff are friendly , helpful and informative ,the vibe here is very arty and New York City but not annoyingly so and you get all kinds of folk staying here. Our room was retro ( old fashioned) but we liked it . The shower plumbing was slightly dodgy so ask them if you can get a room with a good shower , they will understand! we stayed here in early spring , very cold out but our room was lovely and warm. Its just a great place and good value for Manhattan.

Room Tip: Ask for a good shower and if you can have a room facing front ( view , kind of) or if youre a bit pe...

Friendly staff, great location, small but cozy room, satisfactory price by Manhattan standards. Shower did not function properly though. Cold water, very frustrating. Also had work-men chatting loudly outside our door wake us up. Still, would possibly stay here again.

This hotel is excellent value given it's location. It is clean and tidy and the room has everything you might need for a quick stay in nyc. The staff are great, very friendly and so helpful.
There are renovation works but these did not interfere with our stay. The only thing I would have liked is a mirror in the bedroom!
