First of all, Metro-Home, like many other illegal "hotels" in New York, only lease their apartments, they do not own them. We are the subtenants. These "hotels" say on the record that they only rent for 30 days minimum, but, off the record, they also rent by the day. They claim to be apartment rental companies, but they charge hotel... More

We were taking our 3 kids to NYC for their first trip to the Big Bagel as the first leg of our US summer vacation. We had 8 nights in town and hoped an apartment rental would allow them a sense of being part-time New Yorkers while avoiding the claustrophobia of hotel rooms - and not being required to eat...

The was the worst apartment/hotel I have ever stayed in. The first day we had a late check in, the apartment was dusty, the internet never did work and we froze to death because the heat was turned off while a window was left open unbeknownst to us. I contacted the property manager and I was treated in a very... More

The pros: - Very good location - Reasonably clean - Very spacious one bedroom (room 3F) The cons: - Check-in took an hour. We arrived at 9pm. I showed my confirmation sheet and confirmation email. Didn't matter. The doorman wasn't informed by Metro-Home that we were coming, so he wouldn't give us our room. Metro-Home's phone number is just an... More

First of all, it is important to understand that this is not a traditional hotel. It is not even a "homestay" hotel. Metro-Home owns a few apartments randomly scattered throughout this Midtown-East apartment building. You are getting a furnished apartment -- no maid service, no room service. It's an apartment, not a hotel room, so don't expect hotel-level service. As... More

I arrived here after a flight from Toronto. I stayed here from Feb 12 - Feb 16 in a studio suite. I found an excellent deal online only to find out on arrival that they were doing contruction during the day. (Probably why there was such a good discount). Like past reviews I agree that the doormen were unfriendly and... More

Excellent East Side location with good restaurants and shops nearby. The building is in repair, the 'doorman' are just watchmen, most with no uniform and hardly a greeting as they are watching TV 24/7. The studio apartment (4B) needs new venetian blinds, better insulation from noise and extremely drafty windows. Kitchen had odd numbers of knives, forks, glasses and mismatched... More

I was looking for an apartmnet hotel in new york since the rooms in hotel are supposed to be small. so booked this place on the net. The price is good, $225++ for a studio apartment. When we arrived, the lobby looked shabby, the doorman didn't even come to the door, was watching TV and gave us our apartment keys... More

A great bargain @ $250/night during high season, including taxes & fees. Stayed in a 5th floor studio apartment for five nights on 55th St - between 1st & 2nd Aves. Very comfortable and quiet, with a queen bed and foldout couch, dining table & chairs, hardwood floors, small kitchen, fridge, microwave. Doormen very courteous and helpful. Safe neighborhood even...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
