Hotel is in a great central location near Madison Square Park and a couple minutes walk to several subways. On 5th Ave is a 7-11, Cafe 28 (for early breakfasts) and a view of the Empire State Building. Room was small, especially with 2 people and luggage, but I guess is to be expected for New York. The room was... More

The hotel is located in mid Manhattan, 27th close to the 5th avenue. The staff is simply great and helpful, the hotel is really nice and just renovated. The room was well furnished full of comforts with a large new bathroom. They offers free hot coffee, fresh water and muffins for breakfast.

Contrary to many big New York hotels I know, The Evelyn is small and unique. Its retro style gives it a special touch and differentiates it from the big chain hotels. Rooms are not very big but newly appointed and tastefully furnished. Gone are wall-to-wall carpeting as nice dark brown wooden floors help rooms be kept clean easily. Bathrooms are... More

Really good located to walk in Manhattan, the hotel is nice, well decorated and simple. The service is fantastic. The room (2 double beds) was a little bit small but enough for resting and sleep! Free WiFi in all the building and fast connection.

This place was amazing. I was really worried before and I read almost a billion reviews of this place but it was amazing and worth it and everyone was incredibly nice. I am coming back to this hotel sometime in the future! The room was clean, the bathroom was clean, everything was nice, and we had booked a late flight... More

The hotel has an excellent location, friendly staffs and clean room. Except for some issue on the very slow and small elevator and the carpet in the hallway that needs replacement soon. The hotel is on the remodelling stage so hopefully this will be rectified soon.

Overall stay was good, hotel location is in the centre of Manhattan, walking distance to most of attraction spot. However, Hotel is still under refurbishment, a bit noisy from the building work. staff said will carry on another 2 years to complete. average Lift waiting time is at least 5 mins. go out earlier if you are in rush!!

The worst thing about our stay was that the water was shut off of two days between 10am and 5pm. There is only one elevator and we stayed on the 12th floor, so taking the steps was kind of out of the question. This single elevator is very slow and God forbid that it goes offline for repairs. Ventilation did... More

The location is excelent and it's completely renovated. Spacious and clean room. Maybe the only drawback could be that there is just one elevator and sometimes you have to wait for a long period of time.

The location is great. The size of the room and the beds were a bit smaller than what they appeared on pictures, so it was not as comfortable. The staff was really nice and helpful. Overall, it is a nice hotel to stay in
