The location is strategic. Its on 46th St between the 5th and 6th AVE. A nice grocessory store right infront of the hotel. That is useful because you will have a microwave, a coffee maker, a fridge and basically a small kitchen. Our first impression (Me and wife) was the feeling that it was not very spacious. Especially after a 21-hour trip, we were expecting more. But after that first night sleep we saw it was ok. Honestly the room was clean. It had a small TV. Not much TV channels to choose from. One or two latin channels + CNN. Clean bathroom with towels. Hot water available. They had one heater in the room that warmed it up enough for us. NYC got cold in November. 4 C at night. The WIFI was free and the signal was strong. The wifi was a big deal for us and it made a difference.
You can easily walk to Times square. The Rockafeller subway station is 3 mintues away on foot. Just on the right in 6th AVE st. Our room was facing the street. It wasn't noisy. except for one late night, while I was trying to sleep, I heard the garbage truck outside doing something. That was it. Sometimes you may be able to hear the footsteps of your guest neighbours in the adjacent rooms. But Its nothing major. Silence most of the time. Overall, it was peaceful.
The hotel has its own restuarant which serves Brazilion Food. Delicious actually. Theres no complimentary breakfast or roomservice.The Housekeeping is all about one nice guy called Joao. He cleans the room daily. He would never knock on the door or bother us. He would wait till we left the room, even at 4pm, and then he would go in and do his thing. Jorge is the manager. He is a nice guy in person. He makes the arrangements for everything concerning reservations. There is no reception. No one to carry your luggage for you. But you do not need that, because this is an apartment hotel. Once you walk in the building , the elevator is 5 meters away. The room had no safe. For two adults the bed is a bit small. We slept comfortably but the bed's small dimensions were smaller than usual. Mind you we are 2 adults who wear medium size shirts.
For the amenities we got, and the location of the hotel, I think the price was very good.
