“Good enough at an unexpected good location”
Reviewed 30 November 2008

Most people here say the rooms are small which may be true, but I didn't think of it as a problem. Maybe I was just lucky with my room on the 7th floor with a view on the road. My room was clean and looked good.

Breakfast was a bit on the basic side though. There wasn't much to choose from and the stuff wasn't exactly fresh, but it was ok for me.

There was a grumpy Indian guy (probably the manager) who really could learn something of his personnel when it comes to attitude. The personnel was very nice and helpful. Although they did acted a bit tense everytime the manager walked by, which was strange because I think the personnel did their job very well and had nothing to be scared of.

The directly surrounding streets are a bit of a mess, look deserted and shabby. But if you walk through it in the direction of Bedford Avenue it gets better quickly. I can really advise people doing this. Bedford Avenue itself is very charming and good for shopping, doing groceries, have dinner and meet arty people.

I'm definitely going to stay here again the next time I'm in New York! Even when I want to be in Manhattan a lot.

Reviewed 28 October 2008

I am a 24 years old guy that stayed with his boyfriend at this hotel last September, after a long trip to the West Coast and northern parts of Mexico. When we were looking for hotels in NY on the web, we found that the daily rate of a very average hotel in Manhattan was the same -or even more expensive- than the executive rooms and junior suites that we booked in cities such as San Francisco, Los Ángeles, Las Vegas or San Diego. Finally, we found through TripAdvisor this gem of hotel, that allowed us to stay in a pleasant place, close to the centre, for a fair price.
Rooms, although small, were very cosy, comfortable and well appointed, with a big flat screen TV, iron, fridge... Our room didn't face the freeway reported in previous posts, but a nice and quiet street at the back of the building. The bathroom was also bright and very clean.
Location was very convenient, just a block away from the subway. There was a direct line, and the centre of Manhattan was only four or five stops away (10 minutes ride or so). As NY subway works 24 hours, coming back late to the hotel wasn't a problem.
At first, we were a little bit worried about the safety of the neighbourhood, due to a few prevoius posts, and especially considering that we were arriving the first day quite late at night (at approx. 11 pm). Instead of a lonely, dark and dangerous area, we found a lively -it was Friday- place, with many bars and shops opened.
Last day of our stay, we discovered that breakfast was included in the room rate. Although it was not the best breakfast of our lifes, it was a good plus, quite unusual in big cities hotels.
All in all, a very good experience. We were very glad of having found this place, and I it has become one of my first options for future visits to NY.
