AKA Times Square is located on 44th Street, next to Times Square. Location-wise it is unbeatable. You can assess different subway lines via the Times Square Station or you can also turn to the other side and hop on subway trans-versing the Bryan Park. It takes you 10-15 minutes to downtown. On the other hand, you can walk up to... More

for extended trips, I prefer the option of renting somewhere to staying in a hotel, as you get more space. AKA sort of splits the difference as it operates like a hotel but the accommodation is apartment style. Our one bed apartment was well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There isn't a restaurant on site, but given the location,... More

Spacious double room apartment with modern decor and new appliances. Surprisingly quiet rooms for a city hotel. Very comfy beds and homey rooms. Extremely accommodating and friendly staff,... More

Great rooms, very spacious. Full kitchen (loved the SubZero fridge), and laundry at the apartment are a must when traveling with kids. Housekeeping once a week is ok, kind of not invasive when you want privacy. Did I mention the fantastic location? And, did I mention spacious apartments for the usually cramped NYC hotels standards? A great choice.

Close to 2 subway stations Times Sq and Bryant Park which connects to almost all major lines. It is right in the centre of Times Square but located in one... More

Location of the apartment. 0.5 avenue block to Times Square. 2 street blocks to the nearest subway station (42nd Street - Bryant Park). Many eateries around and many cart stalls. NEGATIVES: If...

We love visiting New York and this, for us, is the place to stay. Recent renovations have created a roof garden which is great for breakfast, a gym and a lounge area. The apartments are modern and spacious and have full kitchens for those who don't want to eat out every meal. Laundry facilities in each apartment are especially welcome.... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. Very clean and staff are extremely helpful. I was steps away from Times Square. If you want to feel welcome but be left alone to do your own thing this is the place to stay. Rooftop terrace is a great place to chill out. Rooms are extremely spacious, clean and modern.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
