We are currently staying here and while the location and room is fine the bathroom is the size of an averaged sized bath mat. Both my husband and I are averaged sized and relatively fit. You have no chance if you are neither of these! You have to be a contortionist to reach the toilet paper. I have lost count... More

Gorgeous hotel, lovely and helpful staff. Here for a few days mid honeymoon trip, location Central to main sites and shops.

I have stayed here a few times and it's just a wonderful hotel with great staff. It could do with a little refurb but for the location/cost and ambience it's a good solid choice the 24hr food/convenience store across the street is a gem.

This was our first holiday to New York, and our first international holiday for a few years, so it was a big deal for us. The Barclay appeared to be the sort of hotel we wanted - not in the middle of Times Square, so a quieter location but still close to everything, and a lovely looking traditional hotel. This... More

Yes, this hotel has seen its years and will be closing for a one year renovation this summer, but the place is pretty good, rooms are small (average for the city) but very good staff from concierge to housekeeping make stays here a pleasure. Located close to UN, 5th, Madison and a short walk to Boradway, definitively a good option... More

First, the good - The Barclay is excellently located on E48th and Park Avenue, not far from Grand Central Stn and a gentle stroll from the shops of 5th Ave and Central Park. It has a classic turn of the century facade and large lobby area well furnished but rather busy with some "bridge and tunnel" clientele Check in was... More

Staff are happy to help you. The room was comfy and had all the things we needed. It had a hair dryer and a safe in it as well. We were facing a quieter road Which was good at night. The bell boys are smart and kind and hold the umbrella for you if need be! There's a small cafe/store... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay in the Barclay. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the doorman who instantly took our bags and gave us a ticket. We proceeded to the reception and were amazed by the grand interior lobby. High ceilings with ornate gilded decorations & polished marble floors. The reception staff were very courteous... More

I visited this hotel just after new years for 5 days and i couldn't have had a more enjoyable stay, the location is perfect! Literally next to times square and some incredible diners and restaurants. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and there is a very good and reasonable price taxi service which leaves directly outside the hotel at... More
