I have never written a review in my life time for the good or bad. However, it was beyond a nightmare. It was a creepy place as soon as we entered the door. It was like a dirty old haunted castle. We checked in, paid and walked into a room that was not cleaned yet and the staff didnt know... More

Cute little place with nice staff and perfect location on Manhattan. But there are some serious problems with this place. 1. THE BEDBUGS!! Me and my friend got totally demolished by them.. 2. The shower. Every time we flushed the toilet it started bubbel up hair and dirt in the bathtub.

Dear Guest, Of course you can imagine how disappointing it is for us to hear that you were not able to enjoy our establishment. We wish you would talk to us about the problems while staying over, not after checking out. Especially we appreciate your information about “bedbugs” (if they were bedbugs). You left and never said anything about them.... More

this place is desperate need of a full refurb, I auctually think the building is unsafe on 1 side as it slants to one side, there is not much in the area, Apart from people pushing trolleys of rubbish up and down town, the bed room was just Vile not fit for a pig, was not worth the cheap price...

It is cheap as far as NYC goes but badly needs renovation and a good cleaning. First night we had a clogged shower drain; our neighbors (we shared a bathroom) clogged the toilet a few nights later. There was also lots of early morning street noise from trucks unloading and construction. Seriously, I at least want to sleep in a... More

A pretty damn great place. The lobby is easy to navigate and the front door secure. This is a consistently nice and affordable New York hotel. We were able to walk to Manhattan in 15-20 minutes without breaking a sweat. If walking isn't your style, there is a Citibike stand less than a block away. The rooms were clean and... More

While very clean and good location near subway, there is no place to sit other than two chairs in the main area, which were taken up most of the time. I prefer somewhere where I can 'escape' for a quiet cup of coffee out of my room. That, they do not have. Wish it had a yard or patio! That... More

We stayed at this hotel for ten nights recently and enjoyed our stay. Location great and the old world charm of the hotel was lovely.

Our room, with shared bath, was very clean and comfortable. It overlooked the back of the building with a nice view of quiet backyard spaces. The building is old, with some original architectural details which added to it's charm. Right downstairs in the building next door is a small restaurant which is open both early and late. There is nothing... More

Is not the best hotel ever, but I have to admit that is really cheap, and just in the centre of Manhattan. I went with my boyfriend and we didn't have a really big budget so for us was good. You have the tube nearby and the reception is nice. I have to say that the cleaning was not good... More
