Did a lot a research prior to going on my 1st trip to NYC, and found that this was a wise choice. Super convenient to all amenities, inc. the subway, buses (right across the road, going all along Broadway and then onto 5th Avenue all the way to the Staten Island Ferry!), shops and restaurants/cafes etc on Broadway and Amsterdam...

I've always seen this hotel advertised and wondered what the "catch" was for the very affordable rates. The "catch" is that you are paying for the basics, which was perfect for me. The hotel is in a very safe and convenient area, close to restaurants and the subway. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very pleasant. If... More

Location, location, location! This old hotel has received a lot of updates over the last couple of years. A new cafe, one room at a time is being remodeled and now wifi throughout the building. It's still not a big fancy hotel, and it is very rough around the edges but it's perfect for us. The prices are great, the... More

We will echo most of the other reviews. This was well worth the money. The staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. The location is excellent. Yes, the elevators only hold three adults or five hobbits comfortably. It's also true that the rooms are small, like lower inside cabin on a cruise ship small. But it's clean, the beds... More

Stayed here for one night because we had to check-out of our hotel in Times Sqaure. Definitely not luxurious or 5 star but if all you need is a place to sleep then this will be fine. Free wi-fi was a plus.

We're in NYC for pete's sake. The rooms [suite] were extemely small [and very clean], but that was okay. We were basically in the rooms to eithr shower... More

What a great value! The location and the price are unbeatable. The bathroom was very clean and relatively spacious; the room, while spartan, fit what we needed. I will definitely stay there again. The front desk was helpful and positive.

This is a well located very small clean hotel room that does the job and nothing more and nothing less. I would stay here again. Though it appears there is no air con so summer could be brutal. The neighborhood is amazing and subway is 3 min walk away.

I strongly recommend this hotel for people who want to spend little time in it. The rooms are small and the building is old. It wasn't a big deal because we spent most of the time sightseeing and would come back to the hotel only to take a shower and sleep. The location is perfect. Close to the subway, a... More
