We were initially skeptical of staying here considering some of the bad reviews on tripadvisor. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The staff were very friendly and helpful and could answer all our questions about how to get to and from places. The room was clean and comfortable. We had the window that looked over the scrap/rubbish yard but to be honest - who spends their entire holiday looking out of the window?! So we weren't that bothered! Although at night you could see Manhattan lit up beautifully which was quite a special sight! We never had any noise problems from any other guests and the bed was comfy.
The choice of continental breakfast was adequate for us and we would agree that the breakfast area is very small (about 3 tables for the entire hotel!) so either get there early, or you can take your breakfast back to your room which was fine. The room was cleaned very well every day and there was also a safe to put your valuables in. There are vending machines too if you crave a midnight snack!
The hotel is perfect and affordable for subway transport right into the heart of Manhattan - about 10/15 minutes journey takes you straight to Times Square. The area directly around the hotel is not much to write home about - the only walking in the area we did was to the subway station which was about 3 minutes away.
Overall, if you want affordable, clean accommodation in a great location then this is the place!
