Just back from 4 days at the Nesva Hotel and it was a real find!!! The room was spotless and well appointed. The staff super nice, especially Dennis who welcomed me when I arrived, remembered my name, and helped me with restaurant recommendations and maps to get around. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the subway stop and within minutes you are in NYC. True the area is quiet at night (but I never felt unsafe). There are at least 5 boutique hotels in the area so there are always folks out and about. There is a convenience store that makes sandwiches that is open fairly late, another coffee shop nearby, and a chinese restaurant. You can always get back on the N or Q and go to Broadway in Astoria which has tons of places. And tons of places deliver. Astoria is an amazing area and is great to explore (eg Broadway and Steinway Street are nearby). And you can easily get to the hotel on the M60 bus and the subway! You can also buy something earlier in the day and keep it in the fridge in your room. Also ice bucket, and plenty of plastic cups. Also I was informed you can use the microwave 24/7 and also there is a freezer you can use if you wish that is in another part of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was lavish (rolls, fruit, breads, juices, teas, coffee, oatmeal, yogurt, etc) And there was always enough food even when I went late. The clientele is mainly European so it is fun to hear different languages. Also, you can eat outside in good weather on a little patio. I had a little trouble getting wi-fi in my room (but my phone isn't the best) On the first floor it was perfect. One day I didn't have maid service until late in the day and the maid came by to apologize. The room was spotlessly clean with a great view. One nice touch: each day you get a card with the weather on it. Very welcoming touch. And there is a killer view from the balcony. I would happily return to Nesva, esp, since the cost is 1/3 of a NYC hotel. And the place was QUIET. I heard nothing and slept very well. A/C works well and is quiet. I kept the door open on balcony and got great breezes at night. I would happily return here again!
