My husband and I recently stayed in a one bedroom apartment at AKA Times Square. This was our first visit to NYC and we found the location to be fantastic. Times Square was at the end of our street and we could even see the famous NYE ball from our lounge room. Bryant Park subway was a 2 minute walk... More

We stayed here January 2015 in a two bedroom apartment for 7 nights. We found the apartment located central to everything from Broadway, shopping and the subway. We found the staff to be very helpful, not intrusive and very obliging. They were doing some renovations during our stay however this did not impact on our stay at all. The apartment... More

I am currently staying here in the middle of my 5+ (completed 3 months) month stint and i have only good things to say / share about these wonderful apartments. The location couldn't have been any better, right in the middle of theatre / food district and the subway stations (Times Square and Bryant's park) are stone throw away connecting... More

The location is in the heart of Time Square and easy walk to a subway station.The room was clean and a good size. I would recommend the AKA and we are looking to return to New York later this year and we... More

My cousin and I stayed in the studio apartment in early January. The apartment was amazing and so big for new york. It included a washer and dryer which was really convenient. The front desk staff were so helpful and it was great to have someone at the front at all times. The location is great if you are visiting... More

I stayed in a one bedroom plus den with a friend in October, 2014. The apartments are clean and modern. Well equipped kitchen and good quality washing machine and dryer. Seriously in the heart of Time Square withToys R Us on the corner. Our apartment was quiet and noise from Time Square didn't bother us at all. The only things... More

The AKA Apartments are superb - they far exceeded our expectations. The location doesn't get any more central than this - you are in the heart of Times Square but as soon as you enter these apartments you are away from the hustle and bustle and you can unwind and enjoy a relaxing stay. We stayed in a double story... More

Huge studio apartment - far larger than anything else we've found in NY, clean, well equipped and perfect for a week's stay. Super convenient to theatres and TXTS booth. Times Square s little crazy, especially over new Years, but our room was quiet and comfortable. But.... booking and management a challenge. We booked directly with the hotel online and when... More

The apartment are spacious and modern. However there is no view and the neighbor houses are so close that it is always dark. Once you put on the lights you need to close the blinds, there is no privacy at all. The reception is not of the standard of a hotel in the same price range. The rooms get cleaned... More

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.
