This was my 4th time in New York and 1st time staying at the AKA Hotel - which delivered on all levels.
Perfectly located next to Times Square (44th St), the AKA is a small hotel offering apartment style accommodation.
From the second my girlfriend and I arrived we were very impressed as all the staff were extremely warm, friendly and helpful. The apartment itself (studio w study) was also very impressive - modern, large and well laid out. The extra study provided us with enough space to keep all our luggage, freeing up the rest of the apartment. The bathroom was enormous and included a washer and dryer. The main area had a very comfortable queen sized bed, a small dining table and chairs, cable TV and a modern kitchen. The hotel also has complimentary coffee, internet and a small gym.
Overall, it was a great place to crash after a busy day or night. It was well positioned, well kept, well priced and employed good staff. I will definitely be recommending the AKA to family and friends.
