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

Where else can you get a private bath, your own kitchen AND a separate bedroom for the same price of one crummy motel room but at the Guest House Off Park? Phenomenal deal and fantastic location! For our NYC vacation, we took Amtrak to Penn Station and were able to walk to this place from there. Public transportation (including a... More

It looked like it had been furnished with towels and furniture the Goodwill no longer wanted. Dirty is an understatement. I do not recommend. The tv doesn't work, the bathroom is in a state of disrepair, the fridge still had food from the previous tenant. The photo on the website is beyond misleading and for a 'church' apartment, you would... More

We spent 12 nights in the Walt Whitman apartment. After our arrival in NYC we headed to 10 Park Avenue to pick up our keys. The doorman came out with a bunch of envelopes containing the keys and other instructions related to the accommodation and we just had to pick the one that was on my name. He did not... More

I couldn't believe the low cost of this room in central Manhattan - so close to everything. Basic, yes - but you have access to a kitchen and fridge for your delicious NY leftovers and supplies for breakfast, snacks and whatever. Plus free wi-fi. I would not describe the stairs as "unsafe" - they are a little steep - it... More
