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

You cant beat this location, right next to all the plays of Broadway, and 2 blocks away from Times Square. Think about it, you wake up at 1am and you could just put some jeans on and walk around never-sleeping-TimesSquare in about 5 minutes. How great is that? Rooms arent good looking (they used the same fabric pattern on literally... More

Unfortunately the Mayfair was not what we were expecting. We went on it based on the reviews on trip advisor and expedia and were disappointed. One positive – THE LOCATION – RIGHT NEXT TO TIME SQUARE AND A SUBWAY STATION. There were three of us, so we got a double bed and a sofa bed. We thought the rooms would... More

Based on some of the reviews I read I came prepared with my own sheets and bedbug spray, neither of which was necessary. This quaint hotel built in 1902 does show some age but was part of the the whole experience of staying in NYC. Our room was very small but for the one night that all we did was... More

Luckily for this hotel, the location just about makes up for the shabbiness of the hotel. Worn out carpet, torn window blinds and general disrepair throughout. We also had a cockroach on day 1 although we were immediately upgraded to a bigger room as a result. But if you're in New York you're not going to be in the hotel... More

The reason why all windows in the pictures have the drapes closed is because when you pull the drapes, you see there is a wall about half a meter behind the window. Therefore, you are forced to leave the air conditioner working at all times. Besides the fact that the room was quite small, the location and style were nice.... More

Great hotel to stay nearby the main attractions at times square. Price is reasonable for the region, staff are really friedly and always helping the tourists. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in NY, I do recommend. Don't offer breakfest at hotel.
