Great hotel to stay in. The staff are friendly and are always ready to help with a smile. The room size was good enough, and very quiet although it was near everything and a subway station at the end of the road. The only thing I'd mark them down for is not supplying a bottle of water every day.

We stayed for five nights and really liked this hotel. Rooms were small (as with all NYC hotels) but clean and modern. Staff was very courteous and extremely helpful. Location is great, right next to Port Authority bus station for our bus to/from Newark airport and two blocks from Times Square and very close to Hells Kitchen. We would book... More

I stayed here for 8 nights with my girlfriend. We got a room on the 27th floor with a view of the Empire State and the Hudson. The staff were amazing and we were greeted with happy faces and the low down of what's around and where we were located on a map. The room was great, not massive but... More

Very quiet on the 10th floor. Comfortable beds and room. The staff are polite, helpful and friendly. The girl on reception gave us a... More

What this hotel offers is simply the best. The bed is amazing - I have never found a more comfortable bed anywhere in the world. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was very modern and very clean. Breakfast was great. Given the location and also that the hotel was completely booked when I arrived, I never heard... More

First thoughts on arrival were this was in a dodgy street right behind Penn station, don't let that put you off as area was perfectly safe and the price you pay for such a great location. Staff were super friendly and helpful, room was small but normal size for NYC and very clean. Free wifi was a massive plus. Short... More

My partner and I stayed here for 8 nights during a long trip around America. The rooms were decently sized, and they were very quiet (though we were on the 27th floor, so I couldn't judge for the lower levels). The curtains also keep the rooms really dark so was very easy to have a bit of a sleep in... More

After a trip to Iceland we went to New York. We expected a very busy city and busy traffic. Our driver from the airport was very nice and the welcome at the hotel was very warm. The rooms are basic and clean. We organised a birthday party at breakfast and the staff helped us decorate the room and ordered cupcakes.... More

I stayed five nights at the Distrikt Hotel in July 2014. It's location was fine for me - though not as great as the Hyatt Midtown South (see separate review!). But there's a subway stop opposite, and it's only 5-8 minutes' walk from Times Square. I was apprehensive when I arrived: the building immediately next to the hotel was/is undergoing... More
