Booked this hotel in the last winter for a night. The location is great and around Times Square. This hotel was a really good bargain when I've ordered it. I booked a single room and the room was really small and pretty old. There was a decent shower, and even though it was -10 cel. outside you could where a... More

Traveled for a quick weekend visit with elementary school daughter. Great access to the theaters/Times Square/Central Park/American Girl Place and safe/bustling area. Room was generally quiet; noise came primarily from the AC. Clean and bugfree, though definitely on the shabby side and could use some additional redecorating. Wifi was ok, but definitely lost AT&T cellular signal. Staff was friendly. Room... More

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable, friendly, and a conveniently located in the theatre district and Times Square, then this is the hotel for you. Typical to older hotels in the NYC, our room and bathroom was on the smallish side but comfortable for two, but would be very tight if you needed to sleep 3 adults unless... More

I stayed here one night in March. I was solo, on a business adventure. I got a room right up the flight of stairs, a couple doors down on the left. Room was older, but it was clean and charming in its own way. It has a really cool restaurant/bar downstairs. If I wasn't solo, I would of hung out... More

I took a room at the Mayfair twice, before and after visiting Madrid.  It is 1 block from air train Jamaica station to 50th Station by subway E line from JFK. As there is an escalator from the downtown platform of the 50th station of E line up to the ground level, it is all right even if you have... More

We read reviews before booking and they were pretty accurate. Small boutique type hotel that is in a great location in the theatre district. Rooms were small but served the purpose for us since it was only to sleep and shower in. Bathroom did look recently renovated. We were concerned that it would be noisy since we were right near...

I was worried when I first booked this hotel through Hot-Wire.com. Some reviews I read were less than hoped for; but!!! I really enjoyed stating there. I was in over the 4th of July weekend, and found it very charming. Quaint is the word I think this small Boutique Hotel deserves. When I came into the small reception desk, a... More

We stayed at Mayfair hotel on July, 2016. The location was great in Time Square where everything was within walking distance to Broadway shows, Rockefeller center, Central Park etc. Room was really small and being a older hotel, only room air conditioner so had to keep the bathroom door open to keep it cool. Outside hallway was also hot. The... More

As a frequent visitor to NYC I have stayed in many hotels in different areas of town. Being in the heart of the Theatre District and close to Times Square is thought of as exciting but is actually noisy, dirty and charmless. I'd recommend the West Village, Murray Hill or the Upper West Side over this nabe. The hotel itself... More
