Easily accessible, 2 blocks from Grand Central station. Our room was large but a new carpet would have made all the difference. The kitchenette was useful but tatty and in need of replacement, apart from that the room was very comfortable, bathroom was small but adequate. All in all typical 3 star hotel.

Room Tip: Request room on higher floor

3 of us shared a suite (bedroom with 2 single beds) and 2 pull out sofas in living room. Kitchenette and bathroom nice and clean. Decor from the 70s. Only issue was colder nights and no thermostat to turn on the heat. Good overall value for NYC in excellent midtown location 2 blocks from Grand Central Station.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August and for our family of 4 it was great value. Yes it was a bit worn at the edges but it was comfortable and everything worked ok. The layout was good for us and the kitchenette spot on for breakfast and making a cup of tea. Location was perfect, within walking distance of all the main sights but very close the Chrysler and Grand Central. I would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Rooms at the front can be noisy, there is no double glazing and the a/c is loud.

Excellent facilities for the price. Great location on East 40th for Grand central station, 5th avenue, Broadway and Times Square. Room was clean, tidy, warm and the staff were very friendly. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

This hotel at East 40th Street, between Lexington and Park Aves, just two short blocks from Grand Central Station and very close to several bus routes up, down and across town suited us perfectly. The staff were efficient and pleasant. The room was quaint, with plenty of space and a nice bathroom. The kitchenette wasn't marvellous but it had a fridge. Nice restaurant next door and small eateries around the corner. The price was reasonable for New York but the real winner was the centrality.
