the room size was fine but dull and dreary , in dire need of a refurbishment, Carpets felt grubby and i don't think the staircases had been cleaned at all for months, paper peeling off walls and very dirty ! Beds were ok but really the hotel rooms and staircase badly needs a coat of paint and new carpets!

Recently stayed at the Hotel Grand Union, choosing the hotel due to its location, which is spot on for getting around! Although an older style property the room was a good size and maid service was provided every day. As a whole the property was in good condition and very clean. Staff were extremely helpful and only happy to help... More

Good hotel in superb location. Clean and tidy. No complaints for the money you pay. Lift is the only pain. I believe they are doing a refurb shortly, so can onlt get better. Will defo be back on my next visit.

This was our second time to NY & We stayed here in October 14 for 9 days. We had a family suite, I think it was called, which was basically 2 double beds & a sofa bed, small kitchenette consisting of coffee machine, sink & 3 cupboards & a bathroom with shower and separate bath tub. I'm know they are... More

Located in Mid-Town Manhattan this hotel is just a few steps from the 4,5 and 6 trains. Whilst it is an older style building I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and spacious room I was given. It was a quiet section of the building with no noise to disturb your sleep. Toilet was old but clean and shower in... More

I arrived with my 14 yo son on the 17th October 2014, a complete let down of what i had read on trip advisor, perhaps they only publish the good comments?. We had to wait for over 2 hours before they would allocate us a room even though it was booked and paid for 2 weeks in advance. the room... More

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
