“Great Value in Manhattan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

My son and I stayed here on a college visit in April. We were very satisfied. The staff was universally friendly and helpful, the breakfast was very good, and the beds were comfortable.It is true that our room had some cosmetic wear and tear, some marks on the wall and carpet that was somewhat worn, but nothing that affected the function of the room. The room was also small, but I have seen smaller in major European cities (think Paris).I was a little concerned about the neighborhood because to my Midwestern eyes it looked a bit questionable.The cab driver assured me it was safe, just a "party" area. My son and I walked all over, one night quite late coming back from dinner after the theater, and had no issues. We didn't notice any noise either. If you want 5 star ambiance and attendant prices, stay elsewhere. If you want a decent place to stay at a great price for Manhattan, stay here.

Very disappointed. Selected this hotel because of good reviews, but were sadly disappointed. The sheets were clean but the carpet was dirty, there was rubbish and dirty linen behind the cupboards. The room was small. We were on the 2nd floor right above a noisy bar (on weekends). The worst fault though was that we requested a crib, received an email to say that they would supply one and when we arrived they told us they did not have one... what the? So our 10 month old slept on a folded mattress (thin) under the desk, yes that's right under the desk! We had to use suitcases to keep her in. Not at all ideal, but what do you do when you arrive at 10pm and they cannot deliver a cot/crib as promised. All in all, a very cramped and unpleasant stay. Oh and while breakfast is included, you would get better nutrition at McDonalds....

Room Tip: Ask for high away from street

A bit outdated but perfectly situated hotel with friendly staff and nice breakfast. Small but clean room including refrigerator and cable TV. Nice place for short-term stay to explore Manhattan and the rest.

This is a good hotel to choose if you want to spend as much time as possible exploring NYC -- because you will not want to spend any time in your hotel room.

I stayed here because the location and price were right. Everything else, sadly, was wrong.

My room had strong musty smell. Nothing I could so would alleviate the odor (other than leaving the room for fresher air.) The carpets were dingy. The bathroom floor tiles were cracked and the door was warped by water.

The hallways and common areas were in similarly poor shape.

The two positive notes are -- the sheets appeared to be clean and the front desk staff were pleasant.

Very small rooms, outdated, smells like mold. Whoever rated as excellent does not stay in many hotels. Bathroom door warped and deteriorated. Rooms not clean. Carpet needs to be replaced. Breakfast was not very good. Ran out of coffee for a while.

Although it is not plush or luxurious, this hotel has much to commend.

It is located Lower East side.There are many restaurants within a short walking distance. It is very reasonably priced indeed. The staff at check-in are courteous, bright and helpful. Mr Dan is a very positive and friendly host. Since we reached the hotel very early in the morning they managed to clean the room and gave us quickly as promised.

Rooms are very tiny. pantry and common toilets are very tiny but clean though.
