We enjoyed our stay at the Affinia Gardens very much. The room size and location were really the winning factors for us, being so close to both good transportation (N, R, Q, 4, and F trains) and to Central Park. We are ex-New Yorkers, so it is nice to get around easily, and to have a big enough place for... More

We have stayed at the Affinia Gardens many times over the past 5 years, most recently in June 2014. The hotel is on a quiet side street and offers spacious, well appointed rooms with fully equipped kitchenettes. Groceries are readily available nearby for those who like breakfast or snacks in the room. Beds are very comfortable. The lobby has been... More

Stand out features are the great location and very friendly and efficient staff inc Kris, Caprice & Joana. Stayed 4 nights. Our two 9 year old boys slept in our room on the sofa bed. Space was tight but perfectly adequate. Would stay again and recommend to others.

What a wonderful, spacious room in a great area with some great restaurants nearby. The staff was so friendly & helpful! They were right there to assist with getting cabs (thanks Mike). I have never seen a room this large in NYC & includes a kitchen! Thanks, we'll be back

Staff was very nice. Hotel was clean. Location was everything. We got there at 11 am and check in wasn't until 3pm. They knew my son had knee surgery so we couldnt of planned when we were showing up. They cleaned the room as soon as the guest checked out and got us settled in right away which was awesome.

The Affinia is in easy walking distance to Central Park and major musems. The room was spotless and the Lobby staff was all helpful and friendly. The location is in a residential section of NYC, close to a family member. My May 2014 visit was my third trip to Affinia, so I am obviously pleased with the accommodations. I findwonderful... More

This was an awesome hotel. It's in a great location and a nice quiet neighborhood. I always read reviews on trip advisor before making my plans. This was a great value for the size of room that you get. Probably the largest room I've had in a NY hotel. I just had a regular room, so I don't understand anyone... More

We stayed on a Friday & Saturday night - largest room that we have had in a NYC hotel. Location met our needs, very close to our daughters apartment although some may want something a little closer to downtown. Service was great; all of the desk staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel served its purpose well. Nice bed, bath and location. We weren't there long enough to take advantage of cooking in, but kitchen was adequate as well. Either a much quieter refrigerator, or a door into the kitchen, would have been a huge improvement. Almost shut it down, but didn't want to risk damage due to defrosting. And got... More

I just got back from a extended weekend get together with a group of women. The room we had was very large and it never felt cramped. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was also very roomy. The small kitchen was a bonus. This is not close to nightlife but it was right down the street from the apartment... More
