I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband & daughter - a 21st birthday treat for her having booked through Expedia & it being the last available 4 adult deluxe room (booking made in April). There are only a few rooms to each floor & they are set in a horse shoe shape so reducing people traffic & noise.... More

We booked this hotel primarily due to the fact its offered a spacious one bed suite and for its central location...(but still a little distance from the madness of Times Square where we had stayed on a previous visit). If you want luxury go to The Chatwall or Waldorf Towers but if you are looking for a great location, a... More

I am loathed to write this excellent review because I would like this hotel to be my little secret. If it becomes too popular, I might no be able to get a room in the future! Nearly all the reviews say the same...Great location (10-15 minute walk to Times Square)....friendly welcoming staff who cannot do enough for you......free continental breakfast... More

I've just spent 8 days staying at this hotel whilst visiting New York for the 2014 Tennis Open at Flushing Meadows. On arrival we were greeted with a very pleasant member of staff at the front desk. Our room was very clean and comfortable, complete with coffee maker, microwave, fridge, dishes and cutlery. We had a very comfortable bed and... More

The San Carlos Hotel is in a great location. You can walk to Central Park ,Times Square, and Grand Central Station easily. It is very close to great shopping and the subway. The hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious (by NY standards). We had absolutely no complaints at all about this hotel. The continental breakfast was also very... More

We stayed for 2 nights when we first arrived in New York and were so impressed that we rebooked the hotel after 2 weeks of travelling around the East Coast. The staff were friendly and helpful and when we had a faulty TV, the maintenance man was there to fix it immediately. Our room (x2 Queen beds) was spacious, clean... More

We like this hotel and have stayed there before. On this visit, there was a problem with the air conditioning controller (it made a beep every few minutes, including all night). Over the course of a 3 day visit we called 4 different times, someone always came promptly to change the batteries and ponder the problem, but the problem wasn't... More

My family and I had a wonderful time at the San Carlos hotel. At first we were slightly concerned because of the large amount of construction going on across the street, but once you are inside the hotel it is very peaceful and quiet. The lobby is not overwhelming, but it is tastefully decorated and has everything you would need... More
