I booked a room here for my 19 year old daughter to stay for a month while she was in NYC for a dance program. Was naturally nervous as i dropped her off there in the big city on her own but found this place to fit the bill nicely! Location was great in a nice neighborhood. Nice market, restaurant... More

Starting with the location, it`s located in an wonderful place, just 3 blocks from a subway station on Broadway. So, it's pretty safe to walk in and out there at night. I did this several times during my stay. Another good reason to stay here is that the rooms were fully renovated, despite the fact that the building is centenary.... More

Comfortable room with nice location. Staffs are friendly and helpful. I and my friend stayed in a twin room, bathrooms are shared with other guests. Reasonable price and it is good for budget limited backpackers.

I have just returned from spending a month at the Hotel 99 and am ready to reserve for next year. Rating this hotel is difficult as I couldn't compare it with the usual expensive Manhattan hotels. First of all, the location at 99th and Broadway on the upper west side was perfect. It is three minutes from the 96th St.... More

Nothing major to report. Rooms were small but well equipped. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location was a little out, but there was a station close by. For the price paid I was happy.

I stayed there for two months and really liked the room I was given. The toilets are clean, though they do not clean your room without you paying a very high cleaning fee so we ended up cleaning our room ourselves. Another thing was that the heater never worked consistently and was often off during the coldest of days. We... More

The room we stayed in had a comfortable, queen size bed, a big TV-screen (not that you need to use it while staying in NYC!) and a good but noisy AC. The towels were changed every day and the bed was made every day aswel. We use the common bathrooms...which were pretty luxurious! The tube is just a short walk... More

I stayed here before and really liked it, so I recommended we stay here when my family wanted to see New York. We booked 2 rooms for July 2012, and just 2 weeks ago received a strange email telling us about some housing law changes and that they have to cancel all bookings because of this, and that they were...

I telephoned Hotel 99 the day before my arrival to double check that my booking was in place. They told me that there had been 'a change to New York housing law' which meant that they had been forced to cancel all bookings. They did not email me or otherwise notify me of this change, leaving me high and dry... More
