This hotel was booked Saturday but Sunday night we were able to stay at a good rate for NYC. Bathrooms are shared and not private for the cheap rooms, they were quite busy so we showered at night instead of the morning. A/C worked well but dripped water constantly on the floor. Staff was very friendly. For $40/night parking go... More

I was very pleased with my room. Yes they are small, yes there are shared bathrooms, but for anyone who travels on a budget, these things don't matter. It is CLEAN and I mean CLEAN. I will stay here again, and again. There is a shared kitchenette which really helps.

A friend booked this place. It was very clean, the staff was very nice, but it is for the budget minded person. Tiny rooms with a shared bathroom down the hall. It is located just a few blocks from Times Square. I found it to be very noisy, so I am glad it was just for a night. Overall it... More

This place is as basic as they come, tiny little private room with a shared bathroom on the hall way. A flight of stairs up to the lobby that is very narrow, and there wasn't any wifi available unfortunately when we were there. However, those are the worse of the negatives. You have to bare in mind, this is as... More

When I got the room I was extremely nervous about the shared bathrooms. I was pleasantly blown away by cleanliness of the bathrooms and my husband and I didn't have to wait once over our five day trip. The room was basic, mirror, chair, sink (which is great so you don't have to leave the room for brushing teeth, washing... More

This hotel is what it is. It is a room with a bed, sink, mirror. The room and shared bathroom were super clean. This is a hotel you use for price and location! It is great for both. If you are looking for posh and lots of time in a hotel room, then look elsewhere. This is just a nice,... More

We stayed here for 4 days, and were very satisfied. The staff was friendly and helpful, room was comfortable,clean and with plenty of space for New York standard. The room had everything we needed just like the (shared) bathrooms which at first we were a little nervous about but we didn't have to wait a single time to use it... More

It was our first and exciting trip to NYC. My daughter and I wanted to spend New Year in Times Square NYC. Everything was fine until we arrived at the hotel room and discovered there are only shared bathrooms :( which is very uncomfortable. We tried to cancel our hotel reservation and they will not give us any reimbursement. Then,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
