For those of you used to travelling in the Third World or with military experience serving in Iraq and Afghanistan then I would say, "Go ahead and book a room - it's a steal at these prices!"
However, for those of you who enjoy the finer things in life - these little luxuries like running water, a duvet, a flushing toilet and a bathroom door that actually shuts, then please do not consider staying at Hotel Transylvania!
I understand this hotel is also 'pet friendly' which came as no surprise to me on stepping into the 'shower' and discovering a carpet of black, wooly hair. I don't know who keeps gorillas in New York but they seem to have taken their pet on vacation here.
The hard-pressed cleaning staff are, however, a delight. The po-faced reception staff are a completely different story and are reminiscent of the prison guards in Tenko - which is quite handy as it prepares one for the tiny, whitewashed cell awaiting you a few floors up.
The only possible reason for staying here is if you have a strange longing to return to 1962 - one look at the carpets, rooms and furnishings and...KABAMM!...you are there!
