The location is very near Times Square with access to the subway trains just a few steps away. The staff were all very nice! Joseph, Beatriz and Abraham they're all very friendly and were a delight to talk with. The room is smaller than a usual hotel room but if you're not planning on spending much time in your room,...

Literally 2 mins round the corner from Times Square, incredible location (needless to say i was impressed by this!) The hotel itself I found to be to a high standard. My room was very comfortable and spacious. The decor was blue and white and of a high standard, pleasant to be in. My bed was clean, comfortable I slept well... More

Besides Joseph who is a delight and pleasure to deal with. BUT the female crew are as nasty and unprofessional as they come, rude, argumentative, no customer service whatsoever. After coming over the day before to check with Joe for my room assignment which he was great to assign the room, BUT when I arrive today to come up to... More

I stayed on my way to and back from Europe (2 nights). Horrible experience. No door lock, chipped and broken tile and mirrors. Dripping bathroom faucet with brown water, very unpleasant front desk. It was not filthy but poorly maintained. The A/C was so loud I could not sleep with it on and could not sleep because of the heat.... More

I discovered this small hotel on the edge of Times Square a few years ago during U.N. General Assembly week in NY, when it's very hard to find a hotel room in any of the "regular" (read over-priced) hotels. I was traveling to Manhattan on business, and never being overly impressed with big lobbies and chain hotels, I decided to... More

This hotel is in a GREAT location, especially for first time tourists. About 1/2 block walk from the heart of Times Square! The hotel is old and there is wear and tear. The rooms are small and our bathroom door didn't close all the way. But the hotel was clean and the staff was helpful. But, all of that pales... More

Was a little nervous after reading some reviews of this place but it was ideal for what we wanted. Certainly a little dated and our room very small but seriously, we were here to see New York not sit in a hotel room. All we wanted was somewhere to put our heads down at night. Room was comfortable, heating was... More

Personally I love the old hotels, it feels like staying in a bit of history. If you prefer bells and whistles or contemporary in character, this one is not for you. A lot to explore in the direct vicinity and no Metro card really needed if you enjoy walking to the 'touristy' attractions. Walking is the best part of actually... More

We wanted to stay in theater district, close to the things we wanted to do and at a reasonable price. We like the "European" style rooms and décor and elevator (very small, just like in Europe). We did not mind that the décor is a bit mature (worn) because we weren't in our room much at all. The bathroom is... More

We had stayed at this hotel once before about 3 years ago. What brought us back was the excellent location, friendly staff and price However, it does need some money spent on it. The only elevator is not only small, but needs a good cleaning; it apparently had been painted since our last visit, but still shows signs of neglect.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
