My daughter & I did not mind the thought of 'roughing it' a bit as the location of this place is great however, we arrived on a saturday & picked up our keys but soon realised they were not for the room I had booked & there was no explanation or appology, ( tried & failed to get contact with...

We arrived around 2 pm and picked up the keys. The hike up to the second floor was steep even for my husband and me who pride ourselves on being exceptionally fit. We could not get the wifi or the tv to work so ran around all over the place trying to find someone to help us. Finally we went... More

We recently stayed in the Frances Harper room. The apartment had a lot of space with decent kitchen/bathroom facilities (including soap/towels), okay beds (though only one pillow per person) and an excellent location - the guest house itself is on east 35th, between Madison and Park avenues. Despite that, there are a lot of small issues that might put people... More

Old narrow stairs longer than todays because of high ceiling. No one there to meet you have to walk half way up block and then... More

Went to this place with wife three kids and a friend. We knew the location looked good when we booked it and it really was which meant we could walk to most of the central NY attractions. The building itself looks a bit shabby, but the apartment itself was large and the was plenty of space. The kitchen was fine,... More

I stayed here recently with a group of friends in the Fanny Farmer room (7). It was a steep climb up to the room, but we'd been warned so were expecting it, and were happy to do so. We arrived in the room and were really pleased with the size - plenty of space for 4 adults. The furniture was... More

stayed here for a week with faily in an apartment that sleeps 6, with a shared kitchen with another apartment. It was clean, warm slightly old fashioned but for a trip that you spend the hole day exploring the city it was perfect. Good value and never an issue with sleeping. Note that there are not any elavators and so... More

We have stayed in another of the CCNY rooms in the past, but this time we were unlucky enough to believe the photos of Hosea Ballou. The sign warning about storing food carefully because of mice in the room was a bad start. No bath or basin plugs made washing tricky. The gas stove was both filthy and disconnected. The... More

There are many things to like about this place. It is spacious. We had the two suites on the 4th floor, with an adjoining kitchen. We were two families of four (the kids range in age from 10 to 21). There were ample beds, lots of space to put our stuff, a working television, and a well stocked kitchen. And,... More

LOVED the Susan Bea. My family of four stayed here for several days and could not have been happier with the space (it's palatial!), the location, or the cleanliness (no idea what the negative reviewers are talking about! Yes, it's OLD -- that's part of the charm -- and no, the towels aren't luxury hotel quality. But like everything else,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
