Good extended stay hotel right between the UN and Grand Central Terminal. I was there during hurricane Sandy and they had back up power, stocked up on water for us and were always cheerful. Higher floors are recommended to mitigate traffic noise, though not ban being on a quiet section of 46th St. Everything you need is within walking distance.... More

Aka united nations is perfectly located, well equipped, European style with all amenities e.g. In the kitchen you need. Stuff is professional and always friendly and helpful. Internet is free and with perfect speed. Forget about the breakfast that is just coffee, apples and pastries. And be aware that the aircon is not up to date and more old fashioned... More

What pleasantly surprised on the location and cost. It's close to wonderful places to eat. Rooms are very nice and clean. I especially loved the white sheets on bed...AHHHH...Definitely coming back. The staff was very couterous and breakfast was nice. The doorman will hail a cab for you which is important when it rains.

We stayed at the AKA - UN for 2 weeks in May and our stay was most comfortable. The rooms are exactly as shown in the photographs - the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is good-sized with all new steel appliances (not that it matters, except for the feel-good factor) and bathroom is average sized - the way most Manhattan...

This AKA is very conveniently located for me. Very near Grand Central for subway access. Even though they have no restaurant or room service, the area has many good restaurants, diners, and groceries with prepared foods. The staff is very nice and the rooms are great.

Great to have the gym, wifi, coffee and muffins in the morning, perfect to grab on the way out the door. Good food marts just around the corner and great to have the well-equipped kitchen.

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.
