“You'll Love It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

My 2 adult children, my Daughters boyfriend and I came into NYC for the Baseball All-Star Game in July. Hotels and parking are so expensive in the City that it made me shop around for something a little more reasonable outside of the city. I read favorable reviews on Nesva online so thought I would give it a shot. The choice was a HOME RUN! Every member of the staff was polite and helpful. The rooms were a touch small but very clean and comfortable. Neighborhood is quiet. The location is perfect. Very close to 2 subway stations and 2 great little family diners. I felt safe walking to and from the subway even after midnight. There is a guarded indoor parking garage directly across the street. Parking was $20 a day and the owner Frank was very helpful with directions and tips on things to do and see in NYC. This will be my choice for lodging on all my future trips to NYC. Thank you Nesva.

Thank you for your comments - they are greatly appreciated despite your disappointment with the size of your room and the lack of eating establishments in our neighborhood. Long Island City is up and coming and restaurants are slowly starting to pop up close to us. We currently do have a cafe, diner, deli and restaurant all within 1 block from our hotel.

We strive to provide the best service possible and hope your next stay with us is a more positive experience.

All the best,

We stayed at the Nesva for a week on a recent trip. We were welcomed by Adrienne, one of the friendly front desk staff who checked us in.

Rooms are compact but very clean, and the hotel has only been open less than a year, so not much sign of any wear and tear. Digital TV was a nice addition, and our 6th floor room had a city view with Queens Bridge and the Chrysler Building in view.

The neighbourhood is quiet, and you need to walk (or get the N or Q train to 36th Ave for shops and restaurants etc). A very short ride of the subway will get you to Astoria, which is a fantastic neighbourhood, with very cool bars and restaurants to go to, along with stores like Rite Aid, Key Foods etc.

Breakfast is included and there's a great selection, from Oatmeal to muffins, croissants, yoghurts etc. Free coffee and tea is provided all day and night.

Recommended for anyone looking for a base that's close to the city and other areas like Astoria.

We went to New York for a wedding and whilst the wedding was in Manhattan, hotels in Manhattan are relatively expensive. The reviews of the Nesva Hotel prompted me to book. We stayed for six nights and the hotel was small, very clean, with friendly helpful staff. Location wise, the surrounding area might not appear very upmarket, but the subway at 39th Ave was only 300 yards away and it was only three stops to Manhattan. A weekly ticket was only 31 dollars and proved invaluable as we went around Manhattan.

The self serve breakfast was available from 7 to 9 am and was quite good, with a variety of breads and cakes and fruit, and yoghurt. The enclosed patio was an attractive oasis to eat your breakfast. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms more than adequate. All in all an excellent base for tourists or indeed business visitors. Parking is available in the street outside and also covered parking is available across the street. Well done Nesva.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony with a view of the Manhattan skyline

Service clearly exceeded expectations: no problem to store luggage and also printing of our broadway tickets was free. Nice clean rooms, area is fine, subway 2 blocks away to Central Park, Times square and all the way to Southtown and parking is free on the street (in front of building). No brainer.

Nice new hotel with great service for people who are looking for something less expensive. Basic, modern and comfortable rooms. No restaurant, but nice employees. Really good location near the subway which will bring you to Time Square in less than 10 minutes.

This hotel turned out to be a great place for my and my friend's needs; it's close to the subway, the room was pleasant, and the balcony in the second room we had offered a fabulous Manhattan view and was very lovely once they brought us chairs to use on it (something the hotel really should consider providing for all guests in general--the room had NO seating at all other than the beds until we requested the chairs). The staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful. The breakfast could have benefited from real orange juice instead of the orange-flavored drink on offer; it felt conspicuously missing, and I think the extra expense would be worthwhile in terms of what it would add to guests' overall experience of the breakfast, which is otherwise simple but adequate. More places to hang towels in the bathroom would also have been useful. Overall, though, a good stay, and a hotel I would recommend to others.

Room Tip: Room with balcony is highly recommended, provided one requests that they bring seating for it. Wi-Fi...
