This was an excellent place to stay in Manhattan. The owner, Joe G. was so friendly. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. It was a great value based on other hotels in the area. This will be our first choice when staying in NYC again.

Full of charm and excellent staff! Location cannot be beat for the price. I stay away from chain hotels to insure I get a room with character. The DaVinci definitely has character. Had one VERY minor plumbing problem and it was handled within minutes. Room was very clean and was very warm considering it was in the 30's at night,... More

What a disappoinment! My wife and I booked reservations after seeing the website's description as a European-style boutique hotel filled with ambiance, DON'T BE FOOLED. Narrow hallways lead you to a room just a half step up from a flop-house. We have never been so uncomfortable in a hotel room. The room's decor is "Yard sale". The beds were uncomfortable,... More

I've just come back from staying 2 nights at the Da Vinci with my boyfriend. It was the only place i could find for a decent price (which actually concerned me ) and based on the reviews I decided to try it out. My boyfriend, who was a first-timer to NYC, did not think it was such a great deal,... More

My husband and I spent a week in NYC and stayed at the Davinci. We were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was in a fantastic location, we were able to walk to so many sites; additionally, we were close to three subway stations so we could easily get just about anywhere and never had to switch trains! Our room was... More

If you are expecting a palace then the Da Vinci is not for you however, at an affordable rate this hotel offers you everything you need. I felt that the room size was fine, my wife found it a little small (about 300sqf) but to tell you the truth I do not know many people who visit NYC to stay... More

The DaVinci Hotel is still NYC's best secret!. I love this hotel, its location and staff. There just isn't a better place to stay in the city. I recommend it to many people and they are most thankful. Wonderful place.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
