4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We were advised to stay at Radio City Apartments by our daughter who visited NY about 12 months ago, so we took her advise. The apartments are not your 5 star quality, but they are clean and very functional. We had a fully operational kitchen, renovated bathroom and a small area with a 4 seated table to eat. The only "down" side was there wasn't much room to put your luggage. A small price to pay for the location. Being mature travellers, it was fantastic that everything is at your door step or within an easy walk. Time square is 5 minutes away and transport and the subway 2 minutes away. Restaurants were easy to find as was Broadway, and tour companies to get you around to all the sights. We made use of all these attractions and means of getting around the city.
Be ready, it's busy, crowded, noisy and exciting.

Stay here for the location, which can't be beaten. Proximity to mid-town's top attractions, plus access to for subway lines within easy walking distance.

Our two bedroom apartment was clean and relatively quiet, with a full (albeit small) kitchen which allowed us to cook some meals.

It must be said the front desk staff are not the friendliest! At times there were up to three rather sour faced men propping up the desk, but not offering much in the way of service! I was even berated for having the temerity to borrow a complementary umbrella without asking! This at $400 a night!

Conversely, the cleaning and laundry staff were pleasant and helpful.

If you're looking for a comfortable apartment with a great location, stay here. If you appreciate being treated like you are welcome by front desk staff, don't choose Radio City Apartments.

Radio City Apartments is the perfect location, walking distance to Times Square.
We stayed here for two weeks while in New York, two horrible weeks.
The a/c in our room sounded like a broken generator, the shower was a nightmare - the water was basically freezing cold OR scorching hot, regardless of where the nobs were.
Our ENTIRE floor smelt of Cigarette, including our room (and we are not smokers), it was disgusting to wake up to.
I would not stay here again and I am shocked at the rating it has received.

The location of this apartment hotel is very good. You're close to most of the big sights on Manhatten. We have been here 2 times before, because it's not crazy expensive and because of the location. We had a studio apartment, and that works okay for 3 nights. There hasen't been done a lot to these rooms since we first stayed here in 2005, but you don't spent that much time in your room in NY either way. It's just totally okay. Nothing fancy, and they don't care if you're there beacuse of a special occation. The worst thing for us this time was the AC. It was extremely noisy, and when you're in NYC in June you have to have it on. Bring earplugs.

It is difficult to find reasonable apartments in the heart of New York, a brief stroll to restaurants, the theatre district, Times Square, and with a subway station a few steps away. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment , not large but big enough for the four of us to relax after a busy day. Small but adequate kitchen, tiny bathroom, but both fine for a holiday. Bedroom with 2 double beds with slightly saggy mattresses - but comfortable enough We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here June30-July 2 with my two teenage sons. Love the location. On the same block as the subway station to and from the airport. A five minute ( or less ) walk takes you to trains to anywhere. Very clean and comfortable. Staff is very responsive to any needs...ours were mainly directions and getting them to hold our bags before check-in and after checkout.

We stayed in a non-smoking room on the front end. Our flight home was cancelled and we returned to the hotel lobby to regroup. To our amazement, there was a room available. It was a smoking room. I am very uncomfortable in smoking rooms so they gave me the keys to go up to have a sniff before committing. Don't know what they spray the rooms with but it works. No trace of cigarettes. Again, this room is super clear and comfortable.

Toasties is a yummy, reasonable breakfast spot next door... We've eaten there every morning. Good coffee, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Good place to people watch.

Close to theatres and a couple super yummy eateries (on the affordable side, remember I am feeding teenage boys). Potbelly Sandwiches in Rockefeller Center, Mardon Cuban Restaurant (get the Cuban sandwich and the plantains), Num Pang (Cambodian). All locally owned and amazing... You CAN eat well in Times Square without spending a fortune.

Just returned from a 6 night stay June 23, 2014, stayed with daughter and friend in one bedroom. Half a block away from Times Square. Rooms were clean, in good shape, staff friendly and helpful. I will go back and stay here again and I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling they have all sizes of aprtments with full kitchens so you can cook to save a little extra cash for fun activities.

Room Tip: We were on 9th floor and it was as quiet as can be.
