“Funky hotel for staying in Manhattan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Yotel for 8 nights.
Overall it was a pleasant experience.
Getting into details:

PROS
- the muffins offered for for complimentary breakfast are amazing. Go for blueberries or chocolate and get there early.
- the room is really clean and although you may think your stuff won't fit, once you get organized everything fits beautifully.
- the coffee from the coffee machine on the corridor is amazing. Get a latte!
- 3 blocks from the train/bus terminal.
- The robot at the entrance, who stores luggage, is useful - and super fun!

CONS
- I didn't like the Hell's Kitchen location so much. Wouldn't feel safe for a woman traveling alone and the area is not pretty. If you want to stay close to times square, you may like it.
- The elevators were always super crowded. Sometimes we had to wait 10min for it.
- The toilet is an interesting experience if you're in a couple. There are no doors, just a curtain. So it requires some creativity to go around this issue.

Small room, but that's what you would expect in New York. Great location, walking distance to Times Square. I thought they actually made good use of the little space in the rooms. Bed was a bit hard, but after a 1st nights interrupted sleep due to this, the walking around the city all day on the 2nd 3rd and 4th days made me sleep like a baby! Highly recommend - much better than my stay at the Amsterdam Court Hotel in 2011. The hotel does have a classy feel about it, restaurant on the 4th floor was nice - we had pizza, and the roof terrace is nice when the sun is out.

Little tip, there is not much hanging space, and only 4 hangers in the room so bring your own hangers if you plan to hang many clothes!!

Yotel is in a great spot if your not looking to be right in the heart of times square but still an easy walk to it all. You are away from the hustle and bustle but in 10 minutes you can be amongst it all. The rooms are very small but have everything you need and are well designed. They offer complimentary muffins tea and coffee for breakfast and a galley on each floor accessible 24 hours with coffee machine, fridge and vending machine. The staff here were some of the nicest and most friendly we have ever dealt with going that extra bit to make your stay great. We would recommend yotel for an affordable but modern stay in New York. Daniel, Nardory and Shane were especially helpful to us during our stay

Room Tip: Some rooms are slightly larger than others for the same price so make sure you ask this when booking...

Interesting hotel with tiny rooms, if you not into tiny rooms and weird interior, this hotel is not for you. I love challenges, so loved the hotel. Was good priced and perfectly located from. Stayed 3days.

Room Tip: If you need large room, don't take the cheapest, standard room, as it will defintely will be too...

Perfect stay @ YOTEL ~ Clean, new, self check in/out is Awesome! Smells Very nice. Great location. Highly recommend this hotel. Manhattan's new YOTEL is an experience not to be missed. As New York City hotel prices go, this one is quite reasonable. Located near Times Square. And the decor was amazing! & on every floor there is a refreshment room with free purified water, hot chocolate coffee, and tea available 24-7. A quick walk 5/10 minutes to Time Square.

Room Tip: Highly recommend this hotel

Great location, within 10 min walking from Times Square, near Subway station. Nice design and comfortable bed. Rooms are not so big but I guess ths is the average size in NYC. Galley service with Coffee machine always available and tasty complimentary muffins for breakfast. Make sure you arrive at the bar before 9 am to have a better and bigger choice.
Staff was not friendly as I expected from such a 'young' and cool hotel. DohYo Restaurant... a rip off (as per my sister), good quality but way too expensive in my opinion.
If you're intention is spending time outside, go for it!

Great Starship like experience - I would recommend to anyone - clean, efficient, reasonably priced, and a very unique atmosphere. Although the experience is designed to minimize the need for service personnel - there WERE plenty of very helpful staff around to help when advice or assistence was needed ------- this is a great hotel !
