This is a kind of budget room only hotel and that is what we were looking for. It was central in Manhattan ...just 5 min from Time Square. The room was a good size, and very clean and tidy. The bathroom was very clean and everything we needed .You will find there is a New York Deli just next door... More

We just wanted somewhere clean that we could get a good nights sleep in. We stayed 4 nights end of June 2014. We had upgraded to a king room when we booked on Expedia, however, we did not receive this when we checked in and could not be accommodated, or our extra expense reimbursed. This is why I did not...

Booked after seeing the location,price and reviews on trip advisor and very glad i did. Hotel is literally 40 seconds walk to times square(half a block). We paid £40 more for a king room on the 12th floor. Room was dated but very spacious and clean. The only downside being the shower was just dribbling out at sometimes (probably us... More

The hotel is not that expensive and had a nice location. It was under renovation, so everything outside the room, looked kinda messy. But suprisingly we didn't hear much noise from it. The room we had was pretty nice, it was spacious (we had two double beds), clean and good free Wifi. Downsides were that an AC unit outside was... More

This hotel is in a great location, less than a block from Times Square. When staying in a budget hotel, I have realistic expectations and Hotel St. James did not meet those. This place is definitely "no frills", not even an ice machine and the elevator is awful. I used the stairs most of the time because I gave up... More

The hotel has a great location; it is almost in the middle of Times Square, only a two-minute walk. The nearest train station is two blocks away. Grand Central Terminal and Port Authority Bus Terminal are 10-minute walk. Bryant park is so close. So are the cafes and pharmacies. However, we couldn't see the front face of the building as...

The hotel was in an amazing location right by Times Square, it was expensive but cheaper than most other accommodation in that area. The hotel is far from impressive, the rooms were TINY but they were clean which is all that really matters.

Great value for New York. Just steps from time square, subway, theatre district and so much more. Not new and fancy, but is clean and nice. Lacks ice and the elevator s are slow but for my money its hard to beat. Stayed there for the third time and hope to go back year after year.

The biggest asset of this hotel is the location and the price. If your purpose is just a place to sleep and rest and not to over spend, then, this is a good place to stay. It was only few steps away from Time Square. There are restaurants nearby and convenient stores. The hotel is old but the room is... More

My family stayed in this hotel from June 22 - June 24. The room was clean and a good size. The staff was very friendly. Because the location was so great, we were in and out all the time. Each time, the person at the front desk greeted us. If you are looking for lots of amenities, this isn't the... More
