This hotel is an unassuming doorway at the street entrance but a delightful surprise inside - very cosy and chic. The room i got was ........ well it was small. However i don't know of anybody who goes to New York to stay in their hotel room. On the plus side the bathroom was HUGE. The hotel is surrounded by... More

Bar an exceptional location, nothing else can be described as above average. The check in time of 3pm is a little on the late side, in fact we were left waiting til nearly half past and luggage didn't arrive til after 4pm. The rooms were very much hit and miss. We asked to move rooms initially as we were greeted... More

It`s my third time at Mayfair Hotel in New York City. Great location. Near Times Square and surrounded by restaurants, bars coffee shops and subway stations. The staff is very attentive and helpful. I highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed here for a few days while in NYC. The price was great considering the location. We were 2 blocks from Times Square. We had read reviews that the rooms were small. Yes, they were, but that was not important to us as we were barely in the room. The room was clean and the staff... More

8/31/14- We booked 10 rooms here for our daughters wedding. The staff, (with the exception of the front desk guy on Saturday dayshift-who was a little too cocky) was awesome. They went out of their way to accommodate us. The building was built in 1902- so it's old. The room prices are probably the cheapest you will find in this... More

Far from luxury - not hot water in the sink - weak but free wifi - friendly staff! This hotel is old and shabby but you can't go wrong for the price in this location. It's clean and quiet. Times Square is around the corner.

Stayed just one night while seeing the highlights of Manhattan and a Broadway show. This hotel was by far the cheapest in the area, has an absolute prime location near Times Square, Broadway and a subway station; and for a short stay is everyhting you need: clean, quiet, comfortable bed, and modern bathroom. Definitely recommended if you are on a... More

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
