“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

Me and my friend stayed at this hotel in May and I loved it!
The staff were so friendly and helpful.
The rooms were great, really spacious and beds were comfy! Even though the hotel is not in manhattan or times square, you can get the N or Q train right into time square (get a weekly ticket it only cost us around $20).
The train station is 2 minutes away from the hotel and the ride into times square is only about 5 minutes.
Breakfast was good, you could make waffles, toast, they had eggs, fruit, cereal, all you need really.
At first I wasn't to sure on the area but after the first day of walking around we felt safe!
(especially for myself and my friend, we were only 17 & 18 at the time)
My friend wasnt feeling well on the last day and we had to check out but our flight wasn't till in the evening but one of the managers gave us a room so my friend could lie down in that day which was really nice.

I would definately recommend this hotel.
I hope to be back at this hotel next year sometime.

This is a great hotel minutes away from all the action in Manhattan. It's just a few miles from Manhattan, yet a quiet place to get away from all the hustle & bustle when your busy day is over. The customer service was excellent, but their directions to a few places were wrong when we asked, so just try to know excatly where you're going beforehand. Subway stations within minutes, great (free) breakfast, & a decent neighborhood where we never felt threatened at any time, day or night. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to NY!

THE VERVE HOTEL

After so many bad reviews I had read, regarding hotels on Manhattan, I almost could not believe on those of Verve Hotel. Fortunately, now I can say that they were true. We had an amazing, spacious, clean and comfortable suite, where we could feel at home.

The location of the hotel is ideal, one metro station away Manhattan, which enable easy access to central NY, and La Guardia airport.

They serve a good breakfast, with a great selection of cereal, fruit, waffles, toast, bagels, hot sausage and mixed eggs.

Despite its appearance the area is safe, and we walked around at night and found some restaurants of different nations and also a mini supermarket which has everything you could need, just 10 min walk from the hotel on 36th Ave.

But, the best of all is the VERVE`S staff, from the General Manager – Mr Pete, to the room-maids, who were very friendly and helpful, always offering the best possible service.

The only restriction is that they never answer an e-mail.

Thanks for all.

I strongly recommend to anyone: make your reservation in advance!

We recently stayed at the Verve both at the beginning and end of our recent vacation (Sept and Oct) at a reasonable rate of $164 a night.. We found the hotel more than satisfied our needs. Rooms were a good size, comfortable and clean with in room free wi-fi. The breakfast consisted of a choose of cereal, fruit, waffles, breads, pastries and egg and sausage so was all that you need to start the day. There is 24 hour coffee/hot chocolate machine in the foyer and also vending machines and ice available on each floor. There is also a washing machine and dryer which you can use free of charge in the basement. The hotel is located a 5 minute walk away from Queens Plaza subway so is easy to get to from JFK airport and also to Manhatten. Even though there is not any restaurants in the immediate vicinity there is a strip of restaurants a liquor shop and supermarket 4 blocks away - we ate several times there at a Greek restaurant. The only fault we could find with this hotel was that the aircon was noisy and the room was a bit dark.

This hotel feels like home. The staff are genuinely friendly and have a good knowledge of the area. 3 computers near the lobby with unlimited free internet was a bonus, and the breakfast is an another free extra that you don't get in many of the New York hotels. The rooms are a good size with coffee (no Tea) But also complimentary tea/ coffee in the lobby. Good location for subway stations in a safe, quiet area. If you are looking for great value then this place cannot be beaten. If i get to visit New York again I will look no further than this place to stay. The New York on Tours on Foot detailed on trip advisor are also a brilliant find. The only thing liked least were the disposable plates and cups for breakfast - New York is like this all over and can't help but think of the amount of waste they produce.

Thank you to the lady who gave us the Subway tickets at breakfast which covered out 3 day stay!! They were well used!!

Room Tip: Ask for a manhatten view
