Forget Nathan Road, this hotel links to the biggest shopping centre we have ever experienced. Hotel staff very polite and efficient and the breakfast has plenty selection of food for all tastes. Rooms large and very clean, bathroom has plenty of space. Good thing about this hotel is that they run a free shuttle bus hourly to Kowloon. Very happy... More

We spent our first three nights in NYC at Marrakech up the street. Both hotels had the same ratings as the Royal Park so we didn't expect anything new for our last night. We chose to move to the Royal Park for our last night since the rate went down substantially. We immediately wished we stayed at Marrakech. The room... More

Pictures on website are false and misleading! These must have been taken at another hotel. It is shabby and run down not "European Stylish" as they bill on their website. Our double bedroom was so small we could barely get around the bed and had no space at all in the room! As for the bathroom- the sink was no... More

30 minutes for driving far from JFK airport, close to Central Park. But what's good is that on 96th street there's a subway station. This place also offer free wifi and do have a mini kettle for you to borrow ;)

The rooms (we took with private bathroom) appeared to be much better then reception hints they would:) Nice shower, stylish brick wall and very conveniend bed. The window opens at the wall, so there is no natural light at any time of the day -- make sure you have alarm clock, othewise you could sleep until mail will knock at... More

If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay in New York, I recommend Royal Park. It's close to the subway, and is only a few blocks from Central Park. The rooms are clean, and the staff was very helpful.

Don't make a reservation here. We had a reservation at this hotel a while ago, but when we went to the hotel to stay, they sent us to another hotel "due to an unexpected trouble". In the end, both the hotel and the other hotel that we actually stayed charged on my card. So, the card was doubly charged. I... More

I booked a room with the Royal Park Hotel & Hostel through Booking.com (which I also don’t recommend) and once I realized it would be a room with a shared bathroom I cancelled literally within one minute of making the reservation and the Royal Park Hotel & Hostel charged me for a night. I called and the hotel management refused... More

It's a decent hostel. I was there for a week in November 2011 with 2 friends - we had a great room with 2 doubles and upgraded to ensuite when we arrived. For the price, it was good. Don't expect 5 star treatment because this is a hotel for people on a budget. It was clean, staff were friendly, and... More

Stayed in their best room (Superior Double Queen Ensuite) which is off the noisy main corridor / reception and waiting area. Like others highlighted, room standards are below what you gather from images, and costs are not ‘value for money’. Our room was supposed to have a TV / cable channels. We did not manage to switch the TV on,... More
