very happy with the hotel, clean, comfortable, great service, lovely people. I would stay there again. Great location, easy acces to the city centre. Breakfest was basic but very nice. Room was large enough.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Finding a hotel in NYC during superbowl was not easy and this hotel turned out to be the best choice for me. I stayed for one week, $195 a night for the first 2 days (superbowl weekend!) and $80 a night for the remaining 5 days. It is clearly a budget hotel and the 21 street Queensbridge stop is the nearest subway station. It is a 5 minutes walk and not everybody might like the neighbourhood but I never felt unsafe when walking late in the evening. There are some groceries nearby. The staff at the hotel is friendly, especially the ladies in the breakfast room. Rooms are clean and have free Wifi altough the signal is not always good. Breakfast is ok but the breakfast room is quite small altough a second breakfast room is available when it is busy. This hotel is a good alternative for the expensive manhattan hotels.

This hotel is located in a unattractive area with the Subway driving over the Ground. However, Central Manhattan is only about 10-15 minutes away by metro, and the metro station is under a 2 minute walk away! That's good! But again, there's nothing to see around the hotel, only ugly train tracks.

The hotel itself is quite new, and rooms very nice and clean. Nothing major, just ok, and what you need.

The breakfast was also OK, we didn't really need anything , but again, nothing extraordinary. There was oatmeal and a bit fresh fruit, which was nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is a good alternative to a Central Manhattan hotel, as it is located just acros he Hudson River, and thereby close to Times Square and attractions. But we wouldn't stay again unless it was much cheaper than something on Manhattan . We got a good deal, so therefore we can recommend the hotel.
