“NYC Day trip Overnight Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Pleasantly Surprised. Very easy to book online and check in. Studio was clean and spacious. There was a very large and comfortable bed in the seperate bedroom with a sliding door to small balcony. Nice clean and fresh linens w large comfortable pillows. Large bathroom w large stand up shower was clean and comfortable. A kitchenette w microwave small refridgerator dishes glasses silverware 4 burners stive and coffee pot.... While there were 2 packets of coffee you need to bring your own creamer and sugar.. 4 seat modern table 4 person couch and side chair and a single cot in a little cubby of the living room. The cot was very comfortable. Dreaded it when I looked at it but sat to read and fell asleep it was that comfortable. Flat screen tv in livingroom. The people in the room beside us could be heard thru what I thought was a closet door however they were abnormally loud. For the most part the room and hall were very quiet. Times square was literally up one block and around the corner. Felt safe walking.

Had the most wonderful surprise of Metro Apartments...neat, clean, comfortable & they provide the usual hotel toiletries. Close to almost everything near Times Square. Absolutely safe to walk on the streets at anytime. Metro stations also in close proximity.

Room Tip: Choose higher floors for better views.

A week ago, 2 of my girl friends and I visited NY for a week & Metro Apartments. This place is just lovely. You're "on your own" in the sense this isn't a hotel with all the accommodations so it feels very personal. Even the keys are actual keys oppose to card; it's your apartment.

Pros: Location is great. It literally kisses the Lincoln Tunnel that takes you to & fro NJ. Around the corner was a nice little shopping area, with a TD Bank. We took cabs most places bc heels & makeup don't work great on Subways, but public trans is within rather close proximity.

Cons: 2 very minute minuses, the shower floors need leveling and the living room walls were really thin, we could hear the family next door when they returned at night.

The Balcony's an added bonus. Will recommend & will definitely revisit when we're back in NY.

Thnx Metro

Upon our arrival, a guest was at the desk complaining about no one coming to mop up water on the bathroom floor after it was requested. That was an omen of our 5 day stay. When it was our turn to check in, the clerk was fairly accommodating, because I was not able to book the studio for 3 people on their site, just two. I expected a cot for my son would take care of us. The clerk had a cot delivered to our room for one day at no charge, saying she could give us a slightly larger room the next day.
We found the room typically small, but adequate. The room finishes were more typical of a very cheap motel (59-69/night in the Carolinas), but the bed had a pillow top and was quite comfortable. What we did not realize was, we were adjacent to the outlet for the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The roar of the buses starting and stopping at the light penetrated the window so well, we could hardly sleep. Although we were on the seventh floor, the buses sounded like we were in the bus terminal itself. They ran 24 hrs/day. I should have brought a carbon monoxide detector.
The next morning we found the mini-fridge containing our breakfast had died. So it was just as well that we had to move to a new room. The folks at the desk said they would try to get us a room facing 41 St, which may be a little quieter. They did so while we were out in the city and moved our belongings & food for us.
The new room did prove to be quieter and slightly larger. By the end of day two we began to wonder if we would be getting maid service like 99% of other hotels out there. We saw maids, but none ever cleaned our room. This was not stated in the website, Another small service issue that is not clear from the website is that the front desk is not open 24 hours like 97% of hotels. There is however an overnight doorman who can do simple requests.
Concluding, if you do not mind the noise and lack of services, this hotel may work for you. It's location 2 blocks from Times Square and a large Metro station, which is very useful. For me, I will not use it again.

Room Tip: Very Important: Ask for a room over 41 St, not on the back side.

Good Day Vetsapien,

Unfortuneately from time to time there will be some oversights and not only is oversight an issue it is how one can recover from the challenge.

I am sorry that you did see and expierence some challenges at the property. From your comment I see we did offer to move you to another accomodation and eventually did so. "The new room did prove to be quieter and slightly larger".

While we do not offer daily housekeeping we can provide you with fresh towels and toiletries.

I am sorry to hear that you will not be returning.

We stayed at the Metro Apartments for 4 nights in March 2013. It was our first visit to New York City. We flew into JFK and caught a taxi to the apartments. It took 90 minutes to get there as it was peak time! Coming back took 45 minutes as it was a Sunday. We paid a flat fee to/from JFK of $52 plus $5.83 in tolls. We were checked into the apartment quickly and efficiently by Dave. The lobby was clean and looked newly renovated with fresh flowers. We were given room 7B which wasn't a renovated room but I had emailed ahead of arrival and reserved a renovated room on a higher floor with Tonya. We could have moved into this and paid the additional cost if we weren't happy with the room we had booked and paid for. However, we were more than happy with room 7B. It was spacious and very,very clean and represented excellent value for the price we had paid. All the items in the kitchenette were new or nearly new and contained everything we needed apart from a kettle. We boiled water in a saucepan to make tea. There was a 'fridge, microwave and toaster as well as plates, dishes, glasses and cutlery. We even had washing up liquid and cloths! Towels,soap,shampoo,shower gel and body lotion were also provided. We had a small balcony with views of some of the City's skyscrapers. We felt the temperature of the room was just right. The location was excellent. We were able to walk to Times Square in about 10 minutes and walked everywhere from here apart from when we went downtown when we used the subway. The subway was much easier to use than we thought it would be. It cost $2.25 for a single ride. There were many excellent restaurants nearby. We had a lovely meal at the Theatre Row Diner which was literally over the road and a fantastic breakfast at the Market Diner 5-10 minutes walk away. The 7-eleven for room provisions was 5 minutes walk and Kmart at Penn Street Station about 15 minutes walk. After reading some reviews we, as 3 females, were a little concerned about the safety of this area but we needn't have worried as we felt completely safe at all times. The free wi-fi was a really good bonus as was the free tea, coffee and pastries in the lobby. The only downside to the apartments we could think of was the noise of the traffic at night which made it hard to sleep. Better insulation should be considered as a future improvement but we bought some ear plugs and slept well from then on!

We have a family of 5, we had plenty of room, very clean and roomie, we were walking distance to times square and the subway. The people at the front desk were VERY helpful with all of our concerns and questions from ... directions to good places to eat !
Thank you for a great stay ..... We WILL be back.

Room Tip: I bring ear plugs to NYC rather I stay in the City or outskirts because the cab drivers LOVE to honk...

Tonya F,

We are THRILLED we earned a total score of 5 out of 5 from you!!!!

Funny thing with you mentioning the ear plugs, we had bought some for guests at one point because we had many concerns about the traffic.

Please come back and see us soon.

Small room, it was average. Being it was "apartment style" there was no cleaning (could have used a Swiffer in the room to sweep on occasion.) it suited our purpose, as we asked for a roll-away & it was there in the room all set up for us when we arrived! Had basic amenities, but it worked for the two nights! Staying on a budget it works! Ask for a room facing the street & away from the pigeons! (Couldn't use the patio due to the pigeon & their droppings!)

Smarcenters,

We do make some cleaning supplies available to guests upon request also if necessary we would/could clean the room for you.

New York has it's share of fowl. It was unfortunate that you were not able to use the balcony as we have had some good days in April.

We greatly appreciate you staying with us and open our doors to for your return.
