The location is fabulous and the areas are huge, specially for NY standards. I have stayed in New York several times already and this is my favorite hotel by far. Will be coming back for sure and it will be my first choice next time.

We stayed here for five nights and were blown away by the space and standard of the apartment. Plenty of space and good standard of finish. Perfectly placed for sight seeing. The only downside was the small flies that inhabited the shower drain, I asked for these to be dealt with on the first morning and was promised that maintenance... More

We stayed here for 1 week, gad a deluxe studio room. The room was great but could have been better, the bed was only a queen but there was plenty of room to have a king, there was no bench space in the bathroom, as the sink was too big and could have done with being a bit smaller, but... More

Hubby and I just spent 14 fabulous nights here. We booked a studio room (650 square feet) and were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade. The studio room is the smallest room the aka has to offer here but it's huge by NY standards. Beautifully appointed in a contemporary style, these large rooms offer a kitchenette, washer & dryer (my saving... More

This hotel is fantastic, we will definitely stay here again if we come back to NY. It is right near Times Square, an easy walk up to Central Park and wonderfully appointed. Our room was lovely, quite big for a New York apartment and very quiet. It was so nice to have a kitchen so we could make breakfast before... More

Just arrived back after a wonderful 4 night stay at the AKA. Location-wise, it is pretty much hard to beat, literally 50 yards from the mayhem of Times Square. When we arrived, I was concerned about actually just how close it was, and worried about the noise. We stayed in room 401, and apart from some extractor fan noises, it... More

Loved our stay at the Strand in NYC. Great location within few blocks of Times Square, Fifth Ave Shopping and walking distance to Broadway and great restaurants. Rooftop bar with most amazing view of the Empire State Building
