Recently stayed for 5 nights while visiting New York and the Hotel Nesva gave us everything we required.
It's location is superb with a 3 minute walk to the subway (traditional over road station but no noise from the trains in the hotel), then it's a 10 minute journey to Times Square et al. Get a $30 metro pass which is good for the subway and buses including the M60 out to La Guardia.
The hotel is well appointed and had all the facilities required, however the WiFi wasn't connecting.
Don't expect a banquet for breakfast but for 'a continental' it was fine. Hit the deli by the subway for a traditional NY breakfast.
The neighbourhood is fine, it's in an up and coming area with Queensborro Plaza nearby however there are limited facilities nearby the hotel with only a bar (Holiday Inn), Deli and convenience store which makes it nice and quiet but only a subway ride away from the action.
The staff were very curtious and nothing was too much trouble
I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone planning a trip to NYC.
