This hotel is a good example of "do not judge a book by its cover". I wish this hotel was located somewhere else. I give it 4 stars for cleanliness and staff courtesy and helpfulness. The sheets smelled clean! I slept comfortably for two nights. However, there was not enough lighting in the bathroom, no hair dryer, no full length... More

Overall, this hotel is excellent. It offers the best value of just about any hotel in New York City. The location (The Hub) is perfect for getting into Manhattan. The hotel is about a block from the 3rd Avenue/149th St. subway station, which is served by the 2 (west side) and the 5 (east side). The neighborhood itself is fairly... More

Great hotel. Reception and service is very polite and nice. Facilities are great, I can even say luxury. There is a bath, huge mirror and a king-king size bed of what first comes to mind. Price is good comparing to what you get in Manhattan. It is only 2-3 underground stations to Manhattan, which is pretty close. Hotel is located... More

We stayed in February; it was our second visit, and if possible better than the first. Three of us slept well in a Superior Queen/Queen room, a remarkably clean and well-appointed room and bathroom. There are cookies and coffee available all night, and a terrific breakfast each morning. We love fruit and there was plenty of it. This hotel is... More

It's unusual to see a hotel with this proportion of 5-star reviews. The reviews aren't lying. I had an excellent experience here. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is convenient. The rooms are larger than average, modern and clean. The bed was comfortable. If I had one suggestion, it would be to improve the included breakfast.... More

A great place that has something of the feel of a European find. The rooms are beautifully appointed; one has all he or she needs here, plus it's sort of a hip little hideaway. It's down the street from subway lines that will take you down Manhattan's East or West Side, 25 minutes from either Times Square or Grand Central... More

Polite and helpful staff, the cleanest rooms I have seen in a long time and OMG, the bed was soooo comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised because of its location. With close proximity to my school this will be my chill spot.

I have to admit, I was very skittish about staying at this hotel because I usually stay at hotels in city and people have told me horror stories about Bronx hotels. However, I was immediately impressed when I walked in. The staff were very friendly and willing to help in any way that they could. The lobby, although small was... More
