For many years i have stayed in this hotel. But the last time, after the reformation, i really had a terrible time, which made me say: NEVER AGAIN. Now we stay at the Benjamin, just a block away. The new staff is arrogant, not helpful at all! It is a pitty because it used to be a very comfy and... More

After researching hotel for weeks this was the perfect location and size for our family! We are a family of 4 and needed two queen beds which helped narrow it down! The ratings were great as well! It is located in midtown east which is perfect for walking and touring New York with kids! My children loved the ping ping... More

Really enjoyed the large room (almost like having an apartment in the City)! Once the construction is complete on the block (noisy), this will be one of my top choices, as it is near my work meeting locations (in Midtown) and convenient to Central Park (for a morning run). Enjoyed relaxing in the club room space on the second floor... More

My family and I spent 5 nights at the Affinia 50 and we're very happy. Our terrace suite was really big and was better than we thought after what other people told us about tiny NYC hotel rooms. David, the Concierge, was helpful, polite, charming and gave us lots of great info to ensure we all had a great trip.... More

This hotel is in mid town and found it very easy to get around. Room standards were good although cleaning needs a little attention. Staff are not attentive or overly welcoming and with the wine hour that is on offer (which is great way to meet other travellers) the host and hostess were more interested in guarding the wine then...

My room was to a good standard: modern with a comfy bed and a choice of pillows, and the bathroom was small but everything worked. The concierge was fantastic at recommending good restaurants near by for dinner, as the hotel doesn't have it's own restaurant.. Unfortunately however, the constant noise of sirens (the hotel is on the same block as... More

Great Mid-Town East Location, but the best part is the size of the room! I shared a double-room on e a recent trip with my Mother (who is 70) so it was important to have a room that was big enough for two - and had a lounge area and a kitchenette for Mum to make a cup of tea,... More

We needed a comfortable place to stay before my husband's surgery at Memorial Sloan-Kettering. We were looking for an affordable room that was comfortable and offered a refrigerator and possible microwave for a necessary liquid diet. Affinia 50 provided that for us. Our room came with a refrigerator but the staff was able to provide a microwave that fit on... More

The hotel itself was great, with convenient location, rooms 2 queen beds (rare in the city) and a wine hour with pretty good wines. This review is specifically for the excellent concierge service we got. David Bach gave us excellent tips on how to enjoy the city.

I write this as I still lie in the comfortable bed of this hotel. I'm here with a teenager and the room managed to impress! We were upgraded by the wonderful front desk staff from a two queen bed room (booked with a good for NYC AAA/CAA rate) to a junior suite. The suite is huge by my standards. The... More
