3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Location was great. Price was way cheap!9 Its true what they say you get what you pay for the rooms weren't top notch. But for the amount of time we spent there (sleep) it was fine. It was a block away from time square. For my first time in New York I loved how close it was!

Not going to lie - I was scared of what we got ourselves into but it was really okay. You cannot beat the cost or the location. Of course it is not the nicest place - the room we stayed in reminded of sleeping in my grandmother's dingy basement but we were rarely there.

As you can see by the title, I was basically scarred for life after this hotel. We pretty much booked the hotel because of the good location to the city, but I don't actually think it was worth it. First of all, we were welcomed by the loud noise of "floor conditioning," which was a filthy mess! It looked like... More

The room was small, the furnishings looked quite old and worn and you could hear a lot of noise from the air conditioning units and the street noise. The bed was ok, we were so tired from all our sightseeing we would have slept anywhere. On the plus side it was in a great location, 2 minute walk to Times... More

We landed early, unfortunately had to wait a few hours for our room! Service wasn't too bad, room is average, good for the budget and it has all the basis we need. Location is perfect, a min walk from times square and all amenities.

Last December (2014) we stayed at this hotel for few days. We found it to be the filthiest hotel we have ever stayed. It should NOT be allowed to be opened. Carpets were stained, stinking and dirtied, in the corridors and in the room, mattress was overused, with crushed springs. The staff were very kind.

Great location. Just next to Times Square. We had so much planned and we were out all day every day. The hotel was very basic but suited our needs perfectly. A comfy bed for the night, clean and toilet and bathroom with shower

People this hotel is all about location its just off Times Square. Sure it's in need for a renovation but let's be honest what more do you want from a hotel once it has a comfy bed and a TV for the night time was you can wash yourself this is the place for you when it comes to value... More

Stayed here for a week in 2014 and cannot fault the hotel at all. Perfect location and friendly staff. Room and bathroom were just basic - ideal for just getting your head down. Too much to do in New York to be worrying about the room!!!

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.
