Stayed here for one night for a show at Carnegie Hall. 3 of us were in a king room with pull out chair. It worked for what we needed. The rooms are smallish (as expected in Manhattan), but we were able to move around fine for the short amounts of time we were in the room (though I think we... More

I really liked this hotel. The rooms were warm and cosy, the beds comfy and the staff really helpful and friendly. The location is perfect, very close to Times Square and the subway on 48th / 7th, and while the decor is a bit dated and it is not the shiniest, cleanest place I have stayed, it has character and...

If you want perfection, this is not the place. The carpet is a little worn and the elevator is European style (very tiny and a little creaky) but if you can appreciate a cozy, clean little place at a very decent price you will like the Mayfair. Turn left out the front door and there's a nice upscale coffee shop... More

I was definitely on the fence about this hotel given some of the negative reviews, but my personal experience here over 4 days was extremely positive. First off, the hotel is older so it has some... rustic charm lets say. Others might describe it as dilapidated, but I prefer the former. Full of character, but also the ceiling has holes... More

If you are just sleeping and it is short stay, this place is o.k, if you plan to spend time in the room relaxing forget it! The bathroom was almost the same size as the bedroom, so it was o.k. The staff were very helpful especially in the bar down stairs( which I do not think is under the management... More

I stayed here for almost 4 nights, truly it was a nightmare of an experience. Rooms are tiny, the A/C system never works, as well as the heating system. There is no space for suitcases. Yes, the good thing about the hotel was it's location. However, the room was not as I expected it to be. For a boutique hotel,... More

I do not recommend that you stay in this hotel. On our second day there, our room was burglarized, everything of ours in the room stolen. The management initially said they were responsible and would reimburse our loss. We replaced our stolen items in good faith that they would honor their words. After submitting our reimbursement receipts, they abruptly and... More

I stayed here for two nights. The room is small, but it was clean. The shower worked well, as did the air conditioning. Also, the location is fantastic. If you're like me and plan on spending most of your time exploring the city, this is more than adequate.

I was on the fence about this hotel after reading reviews complaining about faulty heating & air conditioning. Turn out the Mayfair wasn't that bad at all. Even though my room was small it was just fine for me. It was clean & comfortable & the air conditioner worked great. You can't beat the location (all the shows & anything... More

Great Location. We had a room overlooking 49th St. It was NOISY and COLD - frigid air streams in the window and air conditioner. No heat control. No sleep. Hotel is opposite a food kitchen - they load and unload all night. The streets are vacuumed at 3am and trash pickup is at 5am. After 2 nights we were moved... More
