we arrived in NY expecting alot, we got alot! the showers had hair i them, we had food under the bed, and the long dirty hallways felt like we were walking in a horror movie. we never saw any staff other than the grumpy receptionist. ... interesting, yes

This cheap hotel I can recommend for it's location near the Central Park, the hotel is situated in very beautiful and silent street with nice buildings... Hotel room is simple, the restroom is on the floor, but no problem, very clean, and not so much people for one restroom...

I was looking for a cheap place to stay in the centre of NYC, that was convenient for seeing all the sites, going clubbing, and in a safe location. This hotel ticked all three boxes. Although the place was moving with bugs, there were cigarette burns in the duvet cover, the walls were filthy, slander was scrawled over the "Do... More

It's certainly not worth the $128 I paid for it. Only thing I will give it is that I have worked at summer camps and lived in a tent for a summer which was better but the sheets were clean. The police officer story: we went to the vending machine for a snack and when we came back 3 officers... More

I found this hotel after looking for a cheap place to stay in Manhattan. It is rundown and has minimal services. The hallways and stairways are shabby and the elevator was more hassle than it was worth but our room was clean and roomy and our sheets were not dirty despite what other reviews report. The room had a fridge,... More

Well, if you are a rude traveler, this hotel could seems an acceptable place to you. If you are such a person that only books 4 or upper stars hotels, this one could means a terrible experience to you. Points in favor: It's near from everywhere in Manhattan island It's the cheapest hotel in the island You have shared bathroom,... More

I want to preface this review with a note that I am a student and very unfussy person. I stay in hostels a lot (shared rooms with bunks, shared bathrooms), so am used to "roughing it" a fair bit. I really try to give fair reviews on Tripadvisor. Hotel Riverside Studios is the most disgusting place I have ever stayed.... More

Attendant totally lazy and provided false info in order not to move or do anything. Rooms have moss which is unhealthy. only good thing about it is location. noisy outside due to construction but they promised a quiet room.
