The essence of this hotel is VFM (value for money) and proximity to Metro stations ( you can see the hotel from metro station). This hotel is located in Long island, but I could hardly feel the difference (other than manhattan skyline) as the 2 metro stations were so close, just a block away. Within 15 minutes you can reach times square. Its mindless to pay double the price in Manhattan for pigeon hole rooms, when you have to use the same metro to commute elsewhere.
The rooms are fairly spacious and clean. The beds are comfy and wifi signal strong. The room has all the essential amenities for guests. The staff was extremely helpful specially the girls at reception, Cyre and Nabila. Who gave good tourist tips and info about the city. The hotel is very safe and the surrounding area are okay to walk at night, with moderate precaution to be kept by tourist.
If someone is staying for more than 3 days, then I would recommend traveller to buy one week metro card for $ 30. Which allows you unlimited travel through out the metro trains/bus for one week. Its very economical than spending $2.50 for each ride. In fact you can use the same card for commuting to JFK or LGA airports.
You can order Chinese food/Italian Pizza (printed menus available at reception) and they provide you free delivery for any order above $ 6. Thus you don't need to venture out at night in search of food.
Please be prepared the breakfast consist of wafers, fruits, bread, donuts and other bakery stuff and its available only till 9.30 am. Its okay if you are staying in a good budget hotel in NYC.
I would recommend this hotel if you want a bang for the buck. Sure will re-stay on my future visit to big apple.
