I've been here twice in the past 3 years and I have never had a problem! Perfect location, subway is literally on your doorstep as well as a few shops. Can't comment on shared bathrooms as I always get private. Free wifi, good TV, big comfy beds. Staff have always been friendly and I have always enjoyed my stay :-)... More

I was a bit apprehensive about staying here due to some of the reviews I'd ready but truthfully it was fine. The bathrooms were thoroughly cleaned in the morning and the beds were changed each day too. The room was quite small but managed to fit our stuff inside without a problem. Shared bathrooms not an issue as there were... More

We arrived 31.12.15 and left 4.1.16. I had read the reviews on trip advisor and looked at the pictures of bed bug bites. I was nervous to say the least. I can’t comment on value, as this was part of a gift trip to New York. We arrived around midnight and found our room easily. We were up on the... More

Right on the hotel entrance, there are 2 large signs of a peremptory vacate order issued by the state that literally says "there is imminent danger to life or safety of the occupants of this property" and this is alongside another sign which says "VACATE: DO NOT ENTER" issued by the NY state health service. This HUGE violation is not... More

Used to luxury hotels, I was horrified reading the reviews prior to going. But it was actually REALLY GOOD considering the quality-price-location, at about 100$ a night. Here's what you need to know. - you turn the corner and see the metro station. It's right next to it. About 2 min. - The station it is next to is a... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
