Myself and three others were travelling to New York for 4 days/3 nights and discovered this hotel online, it's location is roughly 15 minutes from time square and was barely a 5 minute walk from where we got picked up/dropped off from our bus, it's also 5 minute walk from the nearest metro stations on 34th street which was ideal....

My wife and I recently stayed here for the US Open. Reading the recent reviews we expected a friendly front desk staff, small but clean room with free Wifi, and a safe location that would allow us to navigate NYC via walking and Subway in the morning and evening - and that's exactly what we got. We would leave the... More

We had a nice time here. A good small hotel, clean and functional. The room was small but okay. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. All attractions were easily accessable by walking. An ideal place for visiting NYC.

I would recommend this hotel but for family with kids would b a tight fit, but would be okay, hopefully it would just be for sleeping, then it would be perfect. Need comfortable shoes as a bit of a walk from Time Square, at least 9 blocks.

Rooms are small but have everything you need (television, coffee, wardrobes) they were cleaned daily which was excellent. Ashley on reception was a great help during our stay she advised us on...

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Room was small, with two double beds, desk, and wardrobe (not much more room to move), but everything was clean, comfortable, and efficient, with a coffee maker, safe, and bathrobes in the wardrobe. I didn't like that the towels were in a rack above the shower, but my husband thought... More

Wish the room had a working A/C heat unit. this was terrible, and I could not get a good night's sleep here. Also, the location was so far west, and we had to cross a busy road to get to Broadway area.

As a former native of New York City, it is always a challenge to find a good hotel when I come back to visit, one that is affordable, clean, well maintained and in a convenient location. I finally found a hotel that not only meets these criteria but far surpasses them. And as an added bonus the staff is friendly... More
