The big plus point about this hotel is close proximity to the Queensboro Plaza Subway station. Just a few stops from all attractions in Manhattan for the price you pay for the room. We had a 6 month old baby on a pram and it was a breeze to move around. We stayed for 7 nights in this hotel. It has a few good restaurants around (cross the road across the queensboro plaza station and there are more restaurants and a laundry place).
No fridge or microwave in the room though the book says it is given. When I asked reception they said you can get a small fridhe for $10 a day.
Andrew and Imran at the front just are very helpful in giving directions to get around the place.
Breakfast - well stocked - bread. Pastries. Waffles. Bananas. Apples. Meat pattie and egg pattie. Yogurt. Cereals. Coffee. Juices.
The only problem I encountered in the hotel was room service - that the rooms were not well done. Sheets not changed that often and beds were just made for the sake of it. But towels were replaced everyday. There is a lot of construction noise. The water basin tap leaked. Theblift is old and makes noises. If the air condition is not switched on, the room has a background Stink - it smells old.
At the end of the day its close to Manhattan and is a discent place to sleep at an affordable price.
