Super friendly front desk and very professional. Absolutely loved the decor and layout of the room. I could see where some people would not like the open bathroom design though. I tend to like some privacy while going to the bathroom but I travel alone so it was not a problem. Great view of New York City skyline and the... More

A lot to like about this place. Great bathrooms, spacious and modern. Fantastic view from the penthouse level. Funky restaurant on the top floor. Free shuttle options from the hotel to stations and vice-versa And only a short Met ride into Manhattan However, it is a long way away from anything. The nearby area is a bit dodgy, you wouldn't...

We chose to stay at Ravel for our mini moon night after our wedding on the way back home. The views and balcony from the room were excellent and this is probably what we loved about it the most. Disappointed at how run down the hotel was since they consider themselves to be a "Boutique" and trendy hotel. The chair... More

The hotel was expensive and very noisy. There is a club up on the penthouse that plays techno until 4:00 a.m. The hallway to our room on the third floor smelled of cat piss cigarette smoke and leftover food. I had to cover my nose walking in. The maid saw and sprayed Lysol which slightly helped. Also the next day... More

I was there with some friends a Saturday night and the place was so good, amazing view from the club, good service and good music. Beautiful place in general. I had so much fun that I recommend that place 99% . We had a bottle of vodka and wasn't expensive.

We had a small balcony which looked across the river to New York City. The bathroom was large with a bath and a seperate shower which was partitioned off with... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Really friendly staff, loved the roof bar with the sushi & the cocktails. The rooms were clean & tidy. A great stop off point from JFK & would recommend to to anyone wanting to do NYC on a budget. Worth every penny! (Or should a say cent)

We stayed at the Ravel in Long Island City for 3 nights to attend a wedding being held there. On the positive side, the wedding venue on the rooftop was beautiful and the food was very good. The shuttle service to the local area is also well run and convenient. That's about the most positive comments I can make. As... More
