We thought this place was great, and for the price and location it can't be beat. I was a little afraid of the shared bathroom when booking, but it really wasn't ever an issue. Bathrooms were clean and available when we needed them. The hotel is probably best suited for those who are a little free spirited, fun and young at heart. Definitely not for the Type A personalities. Beds were clean and again, location was great! We were just a few blocks from Madison Garden and the subway. My son (20) and I walked pretty much everywhere...Rockefeller plaza, Empire State Bldg, times square, etc.
When we arrived there were a few college kids hanging out in the lobby who were very friendly, offered us some doughnuts and chatted with us a bit when we arrived. We were given a choice of two rooms to choose from and chose 10C. A few less stairs to climb each day after walking the city. The hotel staff and cat are also very friendly.
I would stay here again, and have shared some of the pics I took with my hippie spirited friends who plan to stay when they visit. It isn't the holiday inn, but everything definitely isn't a boring shade of beige either! For a safe, no frills, great location that's easy on the budget, I would definitely recommend it.
