“Great hotel in central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the AKA in June for 6 nights. The location was fantastic - very central but far enough off Times Square to be away from all the madness. The reception staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough to help us. Our room was spacious, modern and had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the AKA Times Square for ten nights at the end of May 2013 and were delighted with the room, location and staff.

Located just minutes from Times Square the room was a one-bedroom suite with a roomy office. The room was very spacious with it's own washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. It was spotlessly clean and looked as though it had never been occupied.

The friendly staff, without exception, greeted you cheerfully with a smile every time you passed by and nothing was a problem from providing additional room supplies to information about directions and dining options.

We would happily stay here any time we returned to New York.

A wonderful apart hotel in a prime location, at the heart of all the action, just a few steps away from Times Square and major subway lines stations, hence with easy access to other parts of the city.
We had a one bedroom apartment that was VERY specious, even not in NYC standards (important when it comes to storing all of the shopping!!).
Very clean and modern with well equipped kitchen which is very convenient.
Staff are all very friendly and helpful (special thanks to Hande!)
A great choice for NYC!

If you have a family or are traveling with another couple, AKA suites are perfect. Rent one suit instead of two hotel rooms, and live/feel the NYC style. Top shelf modern accommodations in the heart of the city. Limited but friendly accommodating service.

We stayed in a two bedroom penthouse, I was travelling with my husband and my 87 year old father. The staircase was a bit of a challenge for my father as the stairs seem very narrow and steep. The hotel was in the greatest of locations, right in the heart of Times Square and the staff were extremely helpful. We stayed 8 nights so the apartment was ideal for our needs. The room was quiet and comfy. Would highly recommend.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We stayed in 2-bedroom suite 809 for 3 nights.

Location is fantastic, just off Times Square.

The apartment was spacious and reasonably quiet. The trade-off is the windows looked on to...brick walls, which meant virtually no natural light. The lighting in the apartment is good, but if you were staying more than a few days you'd want some natural light!

Bedrooms a bit small but OK for New York, with very comfortable beds. There was a lack of storage space which meant we ended up living out of suitcase for our stay, and one of the cupboards was virtually inaccessible being behind the bedroom door.

As other reviews have stated, for a 2-bedroom flat there is only 1 tiny shower room, which is nice, but simply insufficient for 4 occupants.

Living area and kitchen nice, and reasonably well-equipped, although if these apartments are aimed at medium-term lets I would expect a better-equipped kitchen.

In summary, a good base to explore the city, but my main issue is the price. It's close to luxury hotel rates, and for self-catering with few add-on services, that makes it poor value.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite at the side or rear for a quieter room. Beware the smoke alarm. Ours went off whi...

AKA Times Square is an excellent option to stay close to the attractions. You can do everything on foot. Theater, shopping restaurants. Felt very safe and could chose to go out to have dinner or buy stuff and cook in the apartment.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front have more light and are quiet too.
