This hotel is not luxury - it's old fashioned, dated but its OK. We have been in NY for two nights and it done the job. You don't spend much time in the room anyway, so it doesn't really matter too much. Rooms are SO noisy as aircon unit built into the window - we both woke shivering because the... More

Our stay at the Hotel Grand Union was what we expected. The price we paid was reasonable for what we got. If you're after a resort style hotel then this is probably not the hotel for you but if it's merely a base to sleep then it can't be beat. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, check in/out... More

Good central location. Room comfortable and clean but shower terrible. Our room key never worked, we had to get it re done every night. Service was great. Nice to have wifi in room but unfortunately the connection is poor.

Clean, good beds, friendly staff, GREAT location. That's it. And a free breakfast of rolls, jams, cereal & such. Queen rooms have a bit more room. No ambiance. No frills. When we were there hotel was filled with foreign tourists of all ages. Wi-fi was good with the bonus you didn't have to sign in each time you turned on... More

The biggest thing going for Hotel Grand Union is the location, nestled on East 32nd street between Madison and Park Avenue, it feels just far enough away from the high tourist traffic area of 5th avenue (which is really just another block over), whilst giving you easy access to midtown, Central Park, and down to the Village and Chinatown.

This was my first time in New York and after researching some hotels the location of this hotel seemed appropriate from the reviews read. It certainly was correct. A overall good hotel with clean rooms. The décor of the hotel is dated and the hotel does need renovating but if you are like me we only came to the hotel... More

Staff were very polite and the hotel had very good wifi reception. Rooms in New York are generally fairly small but ou room was tiny and had a sewerage pipe running through the bathroom. Had booked a smoking room but given a non smoking room. Room was so small that when you went to the toilet, the smell would linger... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Grand Union back in February for a little over 2 weeks. We are a young couple and were just looking for a cheap hotel in a good location. The location was definitely ideal, only a block and a half from the Empire State Building, subway station less than 100 paces down the... More

Seeing the mixed reviews before I arrived made me slightly worried, but this is actually a nice little hotel. It could do with some modernization but the rooms are big enough and very clean. There was some cardboard taped to my window I assume to keep out a draught, which didnt look great. The location is great, near penn station... More
