“So True!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Reading all comments about this hotel, I could not believe they were so true...but I was wrong! This hotel is absolutely perfect to visit New York...I spent 6 nights there and, beyond the affordable price (around 1.000 $ per room), great aspect of Verve are the position (39th St. subway station is 5 minutes walk far) and a lot of service you cannot find in many hotel. I am referring to breakfast (sweet and salty), free wifi connection in the room, free tea, coffe and water at any time, snack and beverage machines on all floor, room to store luggage (1$ per piece), complete helpfulness of the entire staff....I will definitely suggest the Verve to anyone asking me a suggestion about a NY hotel

Affordable hotel with easy access to the subway (5-7mins walk). It is located in an industrial neighbourhood, but is very safe and quiet. The brekkie was sufficient although it can be pretty busy some mornings. There is a free self-serve hot chocolate and coffee/tea machine, and laundry facilities. The room is good sized and well maintained.

Perfect for our trip. Short walk to the subway. We were given complimentary water on arrival and again when we checked out. They also have a service to look after your cases after check out. This really helped as our flight home to the UK was in the evening. Thanks Anthony (reception).

My wife and I stayed at The Verve whilst in New York to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were given a wonderful room, 505, which has a Manhattan skyline view whilst sitting on the bed, just wonderful!
We were a little unsure initially due to the distance from Manhattan. However, the express service was just 3 stops from Central Park. From our first arriving at the hotel reception to checking out a week later everything was just perfect. All staff in the hotel, without any exception, were just first class.
We have never stayed in a hotel with beds or pillows as comfortable, we had a wonderful nights sleep every night which after a busy day sightseeing was just what we needed. The area surrounding the hotel is very quiet at night and feels safe.
I would ask the hotel staff to book your taxi both to and from the airport as the service provided was first rate and much more reasonable at $40 dollars each way than the $70 dollars we were charged from the airport by the yellow cabs, which I might add advertise a flat rate of $52 to central Manhattan although we weren't aware of this at the time!
The breakfast at the hotel with fresh waffles is a very welcome start to the day. One wonderful touch is the coffee machine, microwave and water machine which are free and available to use 24 hours a day. We would not hesitate in recommending The Verve to anyone visiting New York nor would we choose to stay anywhere else if we return to New York in the future. Many thanks to you all.

This hotel in clean and the rooms are just right. There is a Sub station round the corner to take you to Manhattan in five minutes. Laguardia airport is within 15 minutes ride and you avoid most of the traffic to and from Manhattan. The price is half what you would pay downtown.
Only minus is the subway noise, but this is NY.

Nice, smart and clean, reasonable space, comfortable bed. Bonus to have room safe and fridge. Nice breakfast included, quite a few options. Area quiet as mostly commercial, no problems whatsoever, including at night. 39th ave metro 5 mins walk (if that) hotel visible from line. 2 other stops not much further. 2 stops into Manhattan. No regrets
