The staff was very helpful and polite. It was nice to have free Wifi. The hotel is very basic. I had a twin bunk bed room which was a small room. However, since my friend and I were only looking for a place to sleep, this was a good place to stay especially for the cost of rooms in New... More

The hotel is very well located, near the subway station 96. Nearby there are pharmacy, mini market, cafes, restaurants. It is possible to walk to Central Park. The facilities aren't top of the line, but you get this "vintage feeling". If you want a hotel just to sleep while you visit the city, this is an option. They have a... More

This was our second stay at The Royal Park Hotel on the Upper West Side in Manhattan - there is a reason we keep coming back! Where else can you find such a spacious, clean room in such a lovely - and quiet - neighborhood for this price (around $215/night total cost)? Our room had 2 full size beds and... More

Great place to stay, Had two beds, kitchen, private bathroom and a bay window. Room was great, comfortable bed and just a great location close to the subway, eateries and grocery stores. Neighborhood is a little loud so don't count on sleeping late but hey it's New York. Staff was very helpful.

Rooms were okay, bathrooms were small and water pressure/temperature was very unreliable. Air con was incredibly noisy and the room got very hot. Quite a few roaches in the room, had to get some bug spray from the front desk. Location was good though!
