Stayed for couple nights here. Great location, parking included. Bit pricey for my budget but hey, it's New York. The staff was very attentive and helpful. He gave me suggestions to get around and even went out of his way to make my stay more comfortable. Strong internet connection and a clean room. Best of all for me was the... More

the only bad thing was the wifi. The staff was very nice. BIBI was so funny and just very pleasant to talk to. The breakfast was good because the eggs were real but try adding some meat and it would be a lot better. I would stay at this hotel anytime and would recommend all my friends and family.

We stupidly decided to book this hotel for 13 days, we arrived at the hotel and seen the distance from the city, it is an exhausting walk to the train station. We decided to try and make the most out of the experience. Every night outside our room sounded like there was a fight going on, 2 days later me... More

We were very thrilled with our room and our overall experience. The room was very large, clean, nicely heated and many appliance extras! The location was great, with beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline nearby. We slept so comfortably in our room, it was hard for us to wake up by check-out time at noon!!!

Best Western City View in LIC is a great place to stay. If you have business in Manhattan or are sight seeing, City View is a short subway ride away. If you are driving to the NY aria you can park on City View property. Very good deal.

I had an east coast tour and stayed here for New Years Eve and Day. It smelled bad. Beds were uncomfortable. Towels were dirty as though they were used to wipe blood. It was next to a cemetery. I will never go there again.

Let me start by saying that the hotel is about a 20 minute cab ride from Penn Station as that is where we came into when we arrived. A cab ride to the hotel should cost you around $20-$25. Do not listen to the cabbies that are trying to scam you. One guy said it would be a $60 cab... More

Visited this hotel for furneral services nearby. I was pleasantly surprised with the free parking and the hotel was located only 1.5 miles away from service. As we checked in they just put out hot chocolate chip cookies and it was a nice afternoon treat with their in-room coffee they offered. The room was tidy and clean and its everything... More

The hotel is across the street of a huge cemetery so it's not preferable for most Asians (maybe some other cultures would mind too). The biggest pros: good, complimentary breakfast; free shuttle to the closest subway station (they are reluctant to offer it though); free parking and not far from Manhattan. The biggest cons: not so clean from outside to... More

The place is a good one to stay for business. Curteous staff, ride to subway and fair price for NY standard. However, you may experience cigarette or marijuana smell in the hallways that may comes into the room at times. The hotel is not new, but they have worked on it to keep it up. The elevator is an old... More
