“Do you really get what you pay for?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Occasionally I stay at a hotel like this to check it out as a lower cost option; I was sadly disappointed! The rate was about $150/night, which is not a cheap date, even in NYC at different times, and there were other options at the same rate this trip.

The requirement to ring the doorbell should have been the first sign,lobby on the second floor the second - I still went forward; the third was the elevator - room for two with bags at best, good luck if you have checked bags as their size would make the thing problematic. Onto my room on the 4th floor - holy macanoli! VCT (that's one foot square vinyl tiles) covers the floor in the halls and the rooms - old, tired and cracked at best! The room was a 10 X 7 box with a full size bed with a rock hard mattress, a corner sink and a window facing 6th Avenue - a small 1st generation flat screen TV with basic cable. No phone, no food, no pool, no pets! Do worry though bring your cigarettes - lots of guests smoking even though against the law in NY! Did I tell you NO BATHROOM! It's down the hall and shared by all.

I checked out and found another hotel - the place is a real dum and not worth $150 on any night - this is a $30-$50 flop house. YOu did not want to touch the bed, I peeked at the sheets, they were transparent!

Skip this one folks find anything better and be sure to read the fine print - you don't always get what you pay for!

The location could not be better, the prices are reasonable, staff polite and efficient and the bathroom (shared) was clean and the water nice and warm.
We did hear traffic noise and there was a bit of building work in progress down the road but you are within a hundred yards of Broadway so you get the lullaby

This hotel is the perfect location for visiting NY
Rather basic, but very clean, and only few meters from Times Square and Empire State building
if you can, ask for a quiet room, not facing the street

Small hotel, small rooms, enough to come just to sleep after long walks and shopping. Conveniently located, all within walking distance, near a small shop where you can buy your morning coffee and something to eat. Clean, warm, sometimes heard as the doors slamming neighboring rooms.
No free wi-fi, one old computer in the lobby.
Enough for us to stay for a week, save money on shopping, theaters and museums.

staff friendly and to a extent the hotel is clean.
BUT the rooms are very small along with thw beds had to sleep with feet hanging over the edge. place in need of miatence power sockets exposed aircon falling apart. and because of kitchen for people to cook in it smells all the time as no ventalation. cheap good location but if i went again i would spend that little extra. as nothing in room except bed tv sink which is so close tyo the bed you bang ur head on it when you asleep not a fun place to stay or go back to to relax

The location of this hotel was brilliant. right next to time square, 5 min walk to 5th ave, macy's, 1/2 way between Hell's Kitchen and East village and a very short walk to the subway.
The hotel had no wifi, but the Pret downstairs did.
The downfall was the overbearing smell of artificial airfreshener and what i can only describe as stale kebab, and the noise of the traffic outside, which if you invest in a pair of earplugs is bearable if you are trying to sleep in- but this is the nature of the location nd the fact that the windows are not double glazed..
The rooms are perfunctory and the shared bathrooom clean, with a few to choose from on the floor. The blanket was weird (what i can only describe as "waxed polyester)", but sandwiched between a cotton sheet and the bedspread, and only noticeable in the warmth it provided in, due to the weather, a relatively (but not unbearably) cold room.
The staff were friendly and non-intrusive. They were quite helpful when we wanted them.

Overall, for the price, it is a very good deal and i would recommend it to anyone travelling on a budget.
