“Top accommodation with a top location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for in a 2 bedroom apartment for 10 nights with our teenage daughter and would recommend this apartment hotel to anyone. The apartment was to be serviced just once while we were here so we paid for an extra service to be done. We loved the fact it had a washer and dryer in the apartment and a full kitchen however the kitchen wasn't used as there are so many great restaurants close by. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

This was my first time in New York and celebrated my 55th birthday here with my husband. Location fantastic. Theatres, Time Square and Bryant Park for relaxing all close by. Spacious apartment with kitchen and washing facilities very handy. Next time I would ask for a floor higher up as its pretty noisy early on the weekday mornings (we were on the 3rd floor). Would definitely come back.

Travelled from Australia had 8 nights at AKA, suited our need perfectly. Great to have facilities to wash clothes, cook basic meals and get great advice from the staff. They helped us with our planning, responded to all queries and ensured our stay was smooth and memorable.

I have stayed at another AKA with the family and it was great so thought I would try this location on a recent business trip. Staff was nice and my room was ok but not great. But most of all the room was hot!

The room was so-so, the staff was nice but he room was a bit worn and HOT

I would not stay at this hotel

This is the second time we have stayed and again we were very impressed. Very comfortable, modern and clean. Also surprisingly quiet given its location. Great staff as well.
There are many great restaurants in the immediate area. Only disappointment is that the rooftop bar is still not open. When we stayed in March 2012 we were told it would be open shortly!
Even so, highly recommended.

Room Tip: A studio room provides greater space to spread out for a longer stay.

What a great place. Right in the thick of things. 44th street. A two minute walk up the street and your on Times Square. The hotel is more like having a condo. The unit had a nice look to it with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The staff were helpful and courteous. Needless to say, this really is the heart of Times Square so everything is available to your heart's desire.

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.
