The city view offers a convenient location near the hustle of Manhattan. The hotel is an older well kept building that offers a wonderful view of Manhattan. The near by subway has you into Times Square in 10 minutes. The hotel provides a shuttles to the closest subway stop. Only downer is that it stops at 10pm. Cab fare from... More

My flight was cancelled and I had a very hard time getting a hotel room near JFK. Most hotels weren't even answering their phones. A fellow traveler got through to the Best Western City View Inn and the receptionist kindly booked rooms for several parties. The rooms were good for the price. I slept soundly in the comfortable bed and... More

We were first offered a room with horrible smell, rotten foods inside the fridge. After complaining, the staff was cordial enough to switch to a better room. The new room's toilet seat was broken, but at least it did not contain any odors. The lobby and elevator sometime had bad smell, not sure if it is inherent to a hotel... More

I have been staying at this hotel for years - comfortable, clean rooms, great staff, free breakfast, wifi and parking. Inexpensive cab ride to Brooklyn, Midtown or LES destination, I think they even have a shuttle to the subway, although I've never used it. Refrigerators and microwaves in the room.

This is the third time we stayed at Best Western Citiview. Staff always friendly and helpful. We like the view and the proximity to family. We plan on staying here whenever we visit our family in Astoria.

Clean, comfortable and just across the river from Manhattan. Very friendly staff. Very unique building. Free parking! Are you kidding?? When you consider the quality of this hotel, the location, the parking and the price this is an extraordinary value. I often have business in Queens and Brooklyn and this hotel really fits the bill while close enough to jump... More

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!!!
