“A quick birthday trip!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

My husband and I are home from our 2 day visit to NYC. We were extremely happy with this hotel. It was very reasonably priced. It has small rooms but they are clean and comfortable. The front desk was very attentive and had great advice for things to do, places to see and how to save money on transportation to the airport. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of the breakfast each morning because of our schedule but there was always coffee available. And you couldn't ask for a better location!!!! We will definitely stay again and we have already recommended the hotel to friends thinking of visiting NYC.

Just got back from our 4 night stay. It's in a great location, really close to Times Square. The room was a bit small, but we were out for most of the day anyway, so just needed somewhere to sleep really. The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly. Would stay again!

(Positive point) ロケーション良し、スタッフ良し、お値段も良し、朝食も良し! チェックイン当日、冷蔵庫のリクエストをしたところ、部屋に小さな冷蔵庫を持ってきてくれました。 特にジェシカというレセプションの女の子はいつも気遣ってくれ、とっても気持ちの良い声掛けをしてくれ、また泊まりたい気持ちでいっぱいになりました。 ブロードウェイのチケットが安く買えるTKTSまで徒歩3分ほど。 スーパーも近くにあり。 Location is very good. I would like to say thank you especially to Jessica. She is one of reception lady who takes care of customers very nice and friendly. And also supporting staff are very nice too.

(Negative point) タオルに汚れがあることもありましたが、たぶん言えばすぐに変えてもらえると思います。 他の書き込み通り、部屋は狭いです。 初日、私の部屋だけ暖房がきいていなかったようで、とっても寒い思いをしました。が、その件でもすぐに対応- してくれ、最終的にはオイルヒーターを持ってきてくれました。 大通りに近いので、夜はクラクションの音や消防車・警察車両の音でうるさいですが、部屋に耳栓もあり、欠点- は補おうとしている姿勢がとても好印象です。 I saw some towels were bit dirty. But I think if you tell them, then they will change. The room was very small. If you open your suit case half, then it works. The first day, my room was very cold, but they bring me a oil heating, so there was no problem. The night was noisy with the firefighter's car and police's car, but there are earplugs in the room. So, this is also no problem.

Thank you for feedback regarding the murky towels, we take cleanliness matters very serious and have followed up with the designated department and associate whom serviced the room. Also we like to apologize for the room being cold on the first day; because is Spring and the temperature is above 55* degrees by law NYC hotels and buildings do not turn on boilers but provide individual room heaters to assure their guests are satisfied and most importantly warm. I also like to apologize for the noise you experienced throughout the night with the fire fighter trucks and police cars. Please note that due the location we are located in at times cannot control the noise but provide ear plugs for light sleepers; again our apologies regarding this matter. We will be sure to place you and yours in a higher floor on a future return for comfort and a good night sleep. Your satisfaction is important to us and the feedback you have provided we have used to make improvements to the hotel. We always want to ensure we offer an exceptional experience for our guests in the future.

Location = out of this world!
Staff = all were attentive, friendly and accomodating (esp when there was no hot water when we arrived and they paid for us to take a cab to their sister hotel a few blocks away)
Breakfast = well stocked right up until the last minute along with tea and coffee available whenever you wanted!
Hotel room = a squeeze but fresh and clean. Bed and pillows were comfortable. However, manager really needs to look into new shower heads! There must have been a water tank problem at the time as there were a few problems related to hot water and the toilet not flushing!!!!!!
Other = the free WiFi code changed day to day so you have to keep on top of this if you want to make use of it. I feel a better selection of fruit should have been on offer for breakfast but the rest the food provided was great.
My first visit to the USA and the location along with friendly staff has resulted in me considering this hotel again if I go back to NYC.

Room Tip: The higher the better, although cross your fingers that the elevator works!

The service desk is simply amazing making every effort to satisfy your needs. It was my first trip to NY and my plans where not totally set. They made everything possible to help to define the best places and even helped on booking some places.
The rooms are really small, so don't think you will be able to have many bags open (I had 4 and it was a HUGE job on keeping them out of the way).
Location could not be better and havina a bathtube is really cool.

Perfect budget hotel! No luxury, but comfortable and clean. Location is superb and the personnel at the front desk is very helpful. You can go to Broadway theatres easily, all of them are within walking distance and on perfectly safe streets. Rooms are really small, but the bed was big and comfortable. Little space for clothes and the towels should be bigger. Toiletries and hair dryer were ok.It was nice to have coffee and tea and fresh fruits in the lobby the whole day round. The complimentary breakfast was ok, considering the rates that we have paid. Free wifi worked reasonably well.This place is a Very goog option! I would recommend strongly this hotel and I'm planning to return to it when I came back to New York.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper levels to avoid noises coming from the street.
