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!!!

Stayed here back in 2005, great prices, great photos and right in times square. When we arrived, the location was great but inside the hotel was a different story. We had to try 4 different rooms before we found an acceptable one. By acceptable I mean the sheets were clean and the room vacuumed as it came quite clear that... More

I have to say I was slightly nervous about staying here after the online reviews I had read. But having booked a bargain flight/hotel deal and seeing the location, I was willing to give it a go. The hotel I found wasn't as bad as I had read by any stretch - yes it is quite dated, the lifts are... More

Location is perfect!! But I would like to pay a little more for a clean room, clean A/C and a clean bath tub. The room was a mess. The mattresses are cheap. May be I will book again for a solo business trip but never with my family.

The hotel is a good option for low-budget trips. If you are expecting to receive a 5 stars quality, do not stay in this hotel. This hotel is good for its location. It is near Times Square. It is affordable and a quiet place to rest in the night, but not be be away the good night life of the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
