“Excellent Hotel for our family visit to NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The staff at Distrikt Hotel absolutely made our stay faultless. Front desk staff are sooooooo friendly and helpful - it's like they are personal friends. The porters are really nice guys too. OUr room was kept exceptionally clean by cleaning staff. We have only travelled to NY once before and stayed at a grotty Best Western in midtown. The Distrikt was streets ahead on all aspects. We liked the location: so close to Times Square and 9th avenue has a huge number of eating places plus a full servicen laundrette close by. Very comfy beds, quiet for sleeping at night, clean, lovely welcome in lobby everytime we came in and knowledgeable staff. They provide a pass to use a gym 2 streets away and it had excellent gear. We all loved the hot apple cider in the foyer in the afternoon and evening - a lovely touch when coming in from the cold. Thanks to everyone at the Distrikt. You rock more than the Rockettes (if that's possible).

Just returned from 5 hight stay at Distrikt Hotel and have to confirm that it has to be one of the best in NYC. Location,staff,room, all superb,resturant & bar while limited choice is good value and pleasant surroundings.We aked to be moved after first night as room on 2nd floor was next to extractor systems on kitchen roof and was noisey. Staff were very helpful...returned after day out luggage moved to room on 17th floor which was very peaceful.Reception arranged return car to JFK and at $10 more than NY taxi this is great value.
No hesitation in recommending .

Room Tip: HigherRooms at back are quieter

We've just returned from the Christmas atmosphere of New York and our stay at the Distrikt. All previous reviews seem to rate the hotel but not the immediate environment. We loved both. We asked for a room more to the top of the hotel and got the 32nd top floor. Perfect. The room was adequate for our needs and we stayed for 8 nights and didn't feel uncomfortable at all. A large bed, a 37" tv, very good heating and enough storage for our clothing and kept very clean everyday. All desk staff were helpful, courteous and friendly and in the lobby there was a free coffee machine in the mornings and mulled cider in the afternoon.
The hotel lies between 7th and 8th Avenues. On the opposite side of the street is the blank wall of the Port Authority Bus Station and just down the road is the parole office. A queue forms there in the mornings but it is not threatening. You're within easy walking distance of Times Square, the Rockafella Center etc but I also liked heading in the opposite direction to 9th Avenue where you are in perhaps more of the real New York and where there's a whole range of restaurants.

Just back home from 5 nights at this gem of an hotel.Front desk staff are truly outstanding and could teach some 5 star hotel staff I have stayed in a lesson or 10!
Rooms were a very good size in comparison with some of the other hotels I have stayed in NYC.Exceptionally clean and well maintained too.We were on the 12th floor overlooking the street and never had any issues with noise at all.Great shower too I may add.
Very close to the Port Authority which saved us money as we used the Newark Airport bus both for our arrival and departure-cost us 28 dollars each return!!
Having always stayed around 35th Street the change of subway stations etc took a bit of getting used to but we finally got our bearings and would very happily return to this hotel.
Thank you again ladies and gentlemen of the Distrikt Hotel!We had a blast.

After a long search for something affordable and yet in a fantastic location, we stumbled upon the Distrikt Hotel. Upon first glance the hotel is smaller than alot of others surrounding it, however it was of no concern and hardly effected the room size. After a small hiccup involving the room keys (which the receptionists was very apologetic for) we arrived in our room which I expected to be small after reading TA reviews, however this was not the case and the room (twin double) was exactly what we were after for the 5 nights we were in Manhattan, extremely comfortable double bed, decent size bathroom and TV and free wifi (with excellent connection). We were located on the 11th floor and the room faced the bus station across the street, no problem with traffic noise whatsoever and we enjoyed 5 nights of good sleep. The rooms were cleaned to an excellent standard everyday that we were out and overall the staff have a very casual feel about them, yet maintained very professional with all queries and issues. The only small worry was the two lifts that on our first day we waited upwards of 5 minuets for one (two lifts, 32 floors, alot of people) however was not an issue for the rest of the stay. Overall fantastic experience staying at this hotel, why would I want to try anywhere else? Great location, great value, great accomodation, can't go wrong, will be back!

We stayed for three nights around Christmas, we found the welcome and service beyond reproach and the rooms are really clean and well equipped and serviced. Easy access to many of New York's main attractions in Midtown. If it were just located two blocks in any direction it would be the perfect holiday/business hub. Still, well recommended and would visit again.

Hotel is a small boutique hotel in a central location. Easy access to subway, bus station, taxis and short walk to Times Square. The road it is in is a bit run down but always busy so never felt unsafe. Hotel is nice and the fact that you can get breakfast in the bar for $12 before venturing out for a day's sightseeing is great. Staff are very friendly, we arrived around 11pm and the lady checking us in was very cheery and helpful. Lovely toiletries in bathroom and excellent shower pressure bed was very comfortable. We were on the 16th floor and were not disburbed by street noise at all and I am a light sleeper.
