“NYC Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

NYC Spring Break 2013...Not The least bit Disappointing!! Starting with our check in at the San Carlos Hotel...Although we were early to arrive the hotel graciously allowed an early check in. The staff provided outstanding service during our 4 night stay. The room was surprisingly spacious for NYC. It was modern and very clean. I truly cannot say enough about the perfect accommodations provided by the hotel and its central location was the cherry on top. Highly recommended...

Great NY location, very clean, friendly & attentive staff, free Wifi, complimentary breakfast reasonable. Room 506 is located towards the back of the hotel and thus quiet, you cannot hear any traffic at all. A/C and complimentary fridge were humming at night but you quickly get used to it. Spacious room for 4 people compared to other hotels in this category. Comfortable beds. We will definately book again. Thank you.

Stayed there for a week in an Elite suite.It was a very good choice and a very good value for the price. There was a little fridge and micro wave ,they could be handy for a family.All the personnel were really nice and helpful from arrival to departure.Breakfast was fine with a choice of pastries,cereals,fruits and yogourt. Wi-Fi is free and works well.
Location is great: close to restaurants and Times Square.
On a down note the AC in our room was a bit noisy.
I would have no problem recommending this hotel.

Stayed in a suite for three nights with three kids - very comfortable with plenty of room. Very nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. About 15-20 minute walk to Times Square. Breakfast was breads, cereal, and yogurt - no eggs or breakfast meat. No swimming pool. Would definitely stay again.

My husband, my kids and I stayed at the San Carlos hotel in July for 9 days. The staff is corteous, the location is good (4 blocks from 5th ave). The complimentary breakfast (a good differential in NY) is ok: basket of breads/toasts, cereal,coffee, milk, yogurt, orange juice. No eggs, no ham, no cheese, only 1 type of fruit. After 4 days you will get tired of this...#fact
The room was clean and although it is not so spacious, has a closet, a mini fridge and a microwave oven. Two small windows facing only brick walls (like all double rooms in the hotel) and a tiny bathroom. The courtains broke on our second day and were promptly fixed without asking (!!!). Beds are comfy and the street is calm.
Free wifi in the room and computers with printers (!!!) on the second floor. Great to print out e-tickets and etc during the trip.

Room Tip: Maybe the executive suite is better (more spacious and with some view).

I stayed at the San Carlos hotel in June for a short business trip, nice hotel in a good location, but my suite was definitely due for a facelift. It was spacious and overall clean, but the carpet was quite stained and the decor pretty dated. Would stay there again because of the location, not sure about the 4 star rating though.
