We spent 5 days last week here. The biggest complaint was the clanking sound from the radiator. I sleep with a sound machine and ear plugs but even with those it still woke me up several times during the night. The next day we requested a portable heater which they brought up right away and turned the radiator off. It was hard to regulate the temp with the radiator and/or the small heater. I prefer wall climate controlled hotel rooms. The other issue was at times I would run the bath water and it was discolored probably from rusty pipes.
We loved the location of this hotel. It was in a quiet neighborhood and close to the subway stations which was very convenient. After running around the very busy NYC all day, it was nice to get off the subway near hotel and walk in a quiet and nice neighborhood with cute little markets near by.
The rooms were very small but worked out ok for just my husband and I. I don't regret staying here but would be nice if they had an updated heating system. The staff was very nice. We loved having flavored water & tea when we walked in from our long day of running around the city. We also enjoyed coffee in the lobby from Coffee Bean. I didn't mind paying for it as I like a good cup of coffee.
Over all it was a pleasant experience in spite of the heating/noise issues.
