“Excellent budget apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

So, before we went there was only one negative review I could find. I was quite concerned about staying here.

How wrong was I !!

It is what it is. A self catering apartment 5-10 minutes walk from Times Square. When we checked in Fernando welcomed us, gave us our key, wifi code and told us his room where we could contact him for anything.

The room... Beautifully decorated, 2 double beds (bit short so feet hang out a bit) satellite flat screen, dressing table, iron, iron board and hair dryer all there. Lovely spacious bathroom and a kitchen with all things you could need, oven with hobs, microwave, sink, pots, pans, cutlery and plates. We only used the fridge to store drinks in but was good to have the rest!

The rooms where cleaned daily during our 4 day visit, toilet paper replaced and beds made, fresh towels each day and bins emptied.

What more did we need from our trip?
We asked on the day we were returning home if there was somewhere we could store our luggage, and there was (free of charge) so we could spend the remainder of morning out and about without carrying luggage.

Location was fine, there is closer budget hotels such as the Pennsylvania (across from Madison square gardens) but rooms where old fashioned, charges for leaving luggage were $4 per person and charges to use wifi/Internet.

Overall delighted with the stay. It was used for sleeping and getting access to wifi so did the trick.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

It was a really nice room with a great little kitchenette. It is about 5 blocks from Time Square and in an area of town where construction is being done. If you are looking for a concierge and room service this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a clean place to lay your head after taking in the big apple, this is your spot. None of the frills, but worth the money.

There are far and few between on reviews for this hotel and those that can be found I feel are very unfair!

The rooms are of a moderate size however the beds are slightly small in length. Its very modern with a flat screen tv and all new appliances in the kitchen area. The bathroom is of a good size and also very modern.

The towels and toilet roll was replenished and the rubbish bin was emptied daily. The room was clean and tidy.

The hotel is easy to miss as it is more of a place of residence but there is a man to help with your luggage and give your key, wifi code ect...he is there most of the time and leaves a contact number when he is not. He is helpful, polite and speaks fairly good English.

The hotel is a ten minute walk from times square where you have all the local amenities such as subway ect.

Overall staying here was a pleasant experience, it's quiet, comfortable and clean. Near to all the local hotspots.
