I stayed with my two teenagers boys in this hotel gor 12 days. The room was spacous for the three of us with a view of the sky scrapers and the bridge from our balcony.It saw very clean and the staff was very polite and helpful in every question we had. We felt very safe when we came back late using the subway because there were usually other tourists moving aroudn as it is an area with many hotels. There were eating choices around if you were tired to go back to town. We really liked Central, just round the corner.The only thing that was disappoing is that they charged us 15 dollars for phone calls attempts I made from the room but I didnot actually speak as my husband did not answer the phone. In all, if I come back I willdefinitely stay here again as it offers an affordable accomodation close to Manhattan but without being overcharged.
