I had never heard of this place but have probably passed it a million times. It is tucked away on a side street in the heart of midtown Manhattan. The location is great for sightseeing and walking everywhere in Times Square and midtown, so it is great for tourists and those coming in for the theater. The lobby was crowded and understaffed at all times, but everyone was friendly and helpful. The place seems very cramped and small, but also very hip and European. It is very dark inside, even during the day. I carried a flashlight with me to my room after midnight. The rooms are small and oddly-shaped - very much like a tiny NYC apartment, but clean and tidy. My favorite feature was the in-ground indoor swimming pool, which is unheard of in inexpensive hotels in NYC. This one is right in the lobby with stadium seating and a swim-up bar. That alone was worth the cost of the room for me.
