Rooms are decent, the one bedroom suite is a great size room for NYC. location is excellent, very central and walk to 5th ave and 15 min walk to Central Park. But lobby is disappointing, no restaurant in the hotel. and worst of all peak summer and air conditioning conked off in the night in entire hotel. Extremely uncomfortable in... More

Recently stayed at the Affinia on business. Un-refundable internet rate was over $400 for a room that was miniscule and so charmless and shabby and bare bones that there wasnt even a shower cap in the bathroom! Speaking of bathroom, the tub dripped all night, the walls showed signs everywhere of moisture, the bed sheets were so worn that my... More

The newly renovated rooms are perfectly comfortable with good lighting, closet space with a safe, a desk and chair as well as an upholstered one. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows and although there was not a view to the street I was in town for meetings and wasn't there during much daylight. The bathroom had plenty... More

No where else in New York I'd ever stay again! Last year I stayed @ the Dumont, in May I stayed @ the Gardens and last week stayed @ the 50...amazing experience every time ( and I'm not always easy to please). I don't mind admitting that I'm a bit of a hotel snob. Especially when it comes to big... More

I booked this hotel because of its location: near two subway stations and close enough to walk around midtown and Central Park. Got a great price thanks to a 20% discount from an app. At less than £120 a night I thought it was too good to be true, but the hotel was excellent. Huge room and bed, good air... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this fantastic review and for choosing the Affinia 50. We also love our central East Midtown location as it is well-connected to other neighborhoods of New York via public transportation- the 6 and E train are located just a few blocks away - and is also very close to many major NYC...

We stayed at the Affinia 50 for a recent trip to NYC with our two children. The room and bathroom were very clean, and the location in midtown Manhattan was very convenient. There were also a lot of places to stop for breakfast in the morning nearby, and since it was more of a business area, it wasn't too crowded.... More
