I was really hesitant about booking here after reading other reviews, but it was the only thing in my price range. I'm glad I did. No...it's not luxurious, but if that's what you want, you're going to be paying a whooole lot more then what this place is. ANY hotel in NYC is going to be more expensive then it's... More

Nice lobby, big queue at check-in, room average, great location !!!, deposit 100 $ mandatory, but Maria didn't give me a receipt, it seemed weird so I came back and told her, but she seemed that she didn't remember that I gave her the money in cash. After a 30 minutes debate, slowly she started to remember, returned me my... More

This is the fourth time I have stayed and the hotel always proves to be clean and comfortable. Wifi is expensive and I had crap connectivity. The queues for check in are to long and slow and staff not always the most helpful.

Do not stay here. I paid about $160 a night for a room worth less than $50!! The bathroom was 2x3 meters (if even) and the bathroom door was too big for the frame so didn't close. There were fruit fly type things all in my shower & on the ceiling, and I had to get someone to call an... More

I know reviews have been varied for this but our experience was very good. We arrived late and jetlagged straight off the plane from London, to find I had got the date wrong and booked the following night. It was busy, we had no booking but Kenneth on the night team spent nearly an hour making sure we still got... More

Beautiful lobby, that's it. Huge queue at reception waved over no pleasantries we had come to expect whilst travelling in America. Room was dirty. Carpet filthy you could write your name in the dust. Daren't turn on the air cooler for fear of what we would catch. Ceiling tiles brown and falling out from ceiling. Bathroom dirty. Great location but... More

We checked out after one hour. They offered no help, no questions.Didnt even get to see the manager. The rooms looked like something picked out from the 70's. And sad service. Its clear that the staff dont feel good at all. Good location though but still not worth it.

Do not be fooled by the grand exterior and fairly nice lobby. Once you exit the lifts the corridors have an eerie feel to them. Old, dingy rooms that are in desperate need of renovation. Feels like you could be in a horror or ghost movie. Staff are not very friendly and do not seem to care. Only plus is... More

If I could give this hotel no stars, I would! The rooms are disgusting and they look like jail cells! The staff aren't helpful at all and the website is nothing like what you'll get. Avoid, avoid, avoid!!!! Go anywhere else!!! The only thing going for it is the location and it's not worth it.
