We arrived in at Newark airport and took the train/subway to 39th Avenue subway station which can be accessed from the N or Q lines. This took about an hour. The process is easy to navigate if you are familiar with the London train and tube network. The subway takes about 12 minutes from 39th Avenue. Another option is to go from Queensboro Plaza where you can the 7 train (not sure if quicker to Times Square?).
We arrived before check-in time but the friendly girl on reception said this was fine. The room was great. The view of the Manhattan skyline was spectacular. Two very comfy double beds with loads of pillows. Ideal for crashing out on after a busy day exploring this fantastic city. The free wi-fi was super fast although sometimes it didn't work when we came back late at night. The room got cleaned everyday (new sheets and towels) and this was done to a high standard.
The area was quiet but I never felt in danger at any time. If you are worried then you take a taxi from Manhattan which will costly roughly $15. On the walk to 39th Av. station there is a useful grocery store and a diner (didn't visit this).
The breakfast situation isn't ideal but wasn't a major problem. If you went between the hours of 8-10 then it will be busy and it will be difficult to get a table. Most mornings we took a tray from our room and took the breakfast back to the room with us.
Generally a great hotel if you are looking for a cheaper option which isn't too far from the main attractions.
