“Good location, but bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

The good thing about this hotel is that it is located next to the Grand Central Station, not only a touristic place, but also a metro sation, wich makes it easy to go to other parts of the city. Also, it is in a walking distance from other places as the Empire State Building, 5th Avenue and Times Square. The bad thing is that the staff is not very friendly and it is difficult to have your room changed if you have any problems. Also, as there are kitchens with no ventilation inside the apartments, the frying smells come from other apartments and stinks all over the floor. For the price, I considered it expensive, as everything in Manhattan.

Room Tip: Ask for the highests floors cause the frying smells also come from a restaurant next to the hotel. A...

Okay so it's not brand new and fitments are rather dated but for clean, spacious accommodation in a great location I would highly recommend this hotel. All staff were friendly and helpful. We were 4 friends sharing and had two rooms plus well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Two double beds and one king sized comfortable bed settee meant two had to share but no great hardship. Loads of space meant we weren't on top of each other. I would happily stay here again.

We stayed at this 'suites' hotel in mid-may 2014. Rooms were large, cleaned daily. There were plenty of local shops and eateries. When we were there they were experiencing an early hot spell and the air-conditioning didn't really work which made the nights uncomfortable as if you opened the windows the noise of the street would keep you awake. But by the second week the air-conditioning magically started to work so I can only assume that during the cold weather that same system is used for heating. When the weather heats up they must switch it to cold. Our loo flooded the first night but this was promptly fixed. Yes the decor is tired but this is more than made up for by the size of the rooms. No free wi-fi in room which is irritating but I am sure if the rooms were re-decorated and wi-fi provided then the nightly cost would be higher. We paid $305 for one bedroom with two queen beds, living room with sofa bed, kitchenette and bathroom. We were 3 adults but the suite could have slept 6. Yes I would definately use this hotel again.

Room Tip: try to get a high room at the back of hotel for a quieter night

Well, my room was great and big. Location is very good. However, by the price of this hotel they should provide free wi if to all its customers. There are usually a lot of people in the lobby area using the only spot of free wi fi in the whole hotel building.

My wife and I stayed here for five nights in early May. We booked it through priceline.com and got a good deal. When we checked in we were upgraded to a junior suite which is basically a one bedroom flat with a lounge cum dining area, a bedroom with queen bed and a kitchenette. The kitchenette comes with a fridge, microwave, electric stove and basic utensils. The decor may be dates but the room had everything that one needed, especially a large space.
The location is very convenient, on 39th East and Lex. Lexington is full of restaurants and shops that makes the lack of a restaurant in the hotel a non-event. There is a Starbucks a block away.
Overall a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: A larger suite.

We stayed at this apartment hotel after New years. This hotel is very cozy and spacious for New York. It doesnt provide any amenities, but you are in NYC. We had a cozy queen size bed, our suite had a small kitchen, and a good size lounge area. The decor is a bit out dated, but the room was clean. It is a great value for friends or families even. You are 3 blocks away from Grand Central and the 5th Avenue. Time square is also close by. Subway is 5 minute walk, and there are restaurants and venues close by. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

trust me i was a NYC tour guide
