“Boutique hotel with amazing service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We recently stayed at this hotel for 7 nights. The rooms were a decent size with great amenities & the free wifi was a bonus. This hotel is in a fantastic location with great access to public transport & most things are in walking distance if you are happy to walk. You didn't feel like a number staying here as the service was very personable! Would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We stayed 6 nights in a twin double room. My first impressions upon entering the foyer was that it felt tiny. We were relieved that this was not the case with our rooms. It was spacious, modern and very comfortable. We were initially located on the 3rd floor directly opposite the bus port. This was extremely unpleasent as we could hear the noises on the street cleary which disrupted our sleep not to mention, the view was hideous. Thankfully, we were relocated to an upper level which made a world of difference. I travelled to several cities on my recent trip to the U.S.A and their beds were by far the most comfortable. My suggestion to the hotel would be to reduce the price for the rooms on the 3rd floor as it was certainly over priced.

Thank you for your review. We agree that most guests were less concerned about size of room and more about location...so we listened and did change the pricing configuration for booking Distrikt. We are happy we were able to turn around your first impression and make the rest of your stay a pleasant one.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August, we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff who helped us to our room. The room was very clean tidy and had everything you need, free wifi in the hotel is a bonus. The location is great, couldnt fault this hotel.

Stayed here 21st to 28th August 2013 and had a great time. Hotel is well located near Times Square but not too near to be bothered by the hustle & bustle. Reception staff are fantastic, always helpful and you get a great greeting when you return from your trips. They are happy to direct you, offer advice and recommendations. Room was bright, very clean and comfortable. Restaurant was very good with very good service and a good bar.
Hotel has some lovely little extra's like free coffee in the lobby in the mornings, free cold drinks when you return from your trips plus a chocolate and a card with tomorrow's weather forecast in your room. Room maid was always cheerful and kept the room lovely. Even the concierge went out of his way by going up the street to get us a yellow taxi when we were leaving.
Great service, great location couldn't ask for more and would love to return and stay here.
Three little gems we found over all the other sites in New York.
1. New York Fire Dept Museum. Spring St.
Old Fire engines & curios but great display in memory of those who perished in 9/11
2. Bryant Park Sixth Ave between 40th & 42nd Street.
Nice little park to avoid the hustle with a lovely bar and restaurant. Also the cleanest Public toilets in New York. Even decorated with fresh flowers.
3. Sea, Air and Space museum. West End of 46th Street
Located on the Intrepid Aircraft carrier. But it includes a trip through a submarine, see the space shuttle, Concord and a tour round an aircraft carrier with Aircraft and helicopters on the deck. Great for all the little Admirals, Spacemen or pilots.

Well done to the Distrikt Hotel Staff you made our stay extremely enjoyable. Thank You
We Loved New York, had a great stay at the Distrikt hotel and would love to return.

Stayed at this hotel from 10th to 15th Sept & can't fault it. The staff were fantastic especially Nesha & Peter. They really couldn't have done enough for us and we always got a friendly welcome when returning from our travels. We booked a night cruise on the "Hornblower" recommended by the Concierge Manager & it was absolutely fantastic - definitely one of the highlights of my trip. It was quite expensive - $148 but this included a lovely 4 course meal & drinks. We also got invited by the Captain to visit him while onboard and this was courtesy of the Concierge Manager who knew him. We thought this was a very kind gesture and we were treated like Royalty!!! The room was on the 19th floor with not a great view - this would be my only criticisms as I had requested a room (via e-mail) on more than one occasion on a lower floor (not keen on lifts) with a nice view. However, it ended up not being a huge issue. The room was very clean & modern with mega comfy mattress/bed & pillows. There was no noise from outside & I slept well. The iced cucumber water was very refreshing & the fudge brownies were lovely. Reading other reviews it would have been nice to have been left a birthday treat for my friend's 50th as I had also advised of this beforehand. If I could take this hotel and place it in a nicer part of NYC then would have given it a 5 star rating as the area isn't very desirable but our stay was superb!!!

Thank you for choosing Distrikt and for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for recognizing our team members. We are especially happy that Cara was able to get you an upgrade for your cruise! I do believe our team could have done a better job at choosing what was most important to you for your room floor...they assigned you the lowest floor of the room type that you booked, anything lower would have had no views...we should have communicated that better. A bit of a misstep with your treats, our sincere apologies. We are most pleased that our foibles did not overshadow your stay! We do hope we can welcome you back on your next trip!

We stayed here for a week and the staff couldn't be nicer. They helped with sightseeing, advised best places to eat and booked tickets to shows and booked our car for us. The room was spotless on arrival and was cleaned everyday. Rooms are very spacious and bed was really comfy. A welcome thing when you have been sightseeing all day. I would definitely come back here and highly recommended.

We stayed at Distrikt hotel for three nights; I just wish it was longer. The hotel location is perfect: close to everything, yet a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the main street.
The room was reasonable size and very clean. I loved the coffee machine in the room and newspaper delivered in the morning. The bed was very comfortable. We were on the 6th floor and didn’t have much of a view, so I would recommend asking for a room on a higher floor. WIFI was super fast.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were happy to assist with everything, from dinner recommendations, transport advice to printing Yankee tickets…
I cannot recommend this place enough. This was our first visit to NY, but when we return, we will definitely stay at Distrikt again. Thank you guys for a great experience.
