“Great Location - Air Con needs improving”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We stayed at the Belvedere back in July 2013 for 8 nights. The hotel is well located close to Broadway and other major attractions. The hotel is a bit oldish but has a certain charm and charisma about it. We never ate at the hotel as well always preferred to try out at the many restaurants located close by. Hotel staff were very professional and courteous.Fast check in and check out.
My only negatives about this hotel is about the air-conditioning. During July the weather was fairly hot. The AC units was just too loud and and inefficient to allow for a good night's sleep. Tried fresh air from outside by having the window open slightly but that only allowed the noise from the surrounding streets in. I would stay there again if AC was improved otherwise I would looking at surrounding hotels.

Room Tip: Go for the higher floors.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Our first visit to New York City was made easier by staying in such a well located hotel. Less than 2 blocks from Time Square and in the Theatre District. The restaurants of Hell's Kitchen are also only a 2 block walk. Subway stations to anywhere in the 5 boroughs are all within 2 blocks. Rockefeller Centre, Radio City and Central Park are an easy walk. The hub for the sight-seeing buses is just around the corner.

This hotel is great value. It offers a fairly quiet location, clean, well-appointed rooms with very comfortable beds and very good customer service. Our room was an Executive King, so we enjoyed a large room (for Manhattan) with a king bed, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a bar sink. The bathroom had marble tiled floors and walls, a tub with shower and stone counter top. As an Executive room it also came with free Wi-Fi. Some reviews complain the elevators are slow. We were on the 11th floor, so we noticed that, but it wasn't a big issue for us. They have a "governor" on the TV volume, which I can understand, but it's set so low you can't hear the TV when the air conditioner kicks in, or there are emergency vehicles nearby. Avoid using the internet in the main floor Business Centre. It's shockingly expensive!

Definitely recommend this hotel and would certainly book it again for a future trip.

Room Tip: The Executive King room is amply-sized and has a separate nook for the kitchenette. The bathroom is...

I stayed at the Belvedere for the first time in October 2013. The room I had was the largest hotel room I have ever had in NYC and it did not come with the commensurate rate. The staff was helpful and the overall amenities were very nice. My room came equipped with a microwave and a mini refrigerator, which was good, but I didn't really use them. In sum, it was a good place to stay, located where i needed to be and easy to get in and out of it.

The location of the Belvedere is perfect, close to 9th ave restaurants, subways, theatres and Times Square. The check-in was quick, with the staff being very friendly and efficient. The rooms were a good size, the bed extremely comfortable. A quick phone call, and a softer pillow was delivered within minutes. We had free wifi included with our package and found we had a better connection if we stood near the door. We stayed for 8 days on the 17th floor away from 48th st. We heard occasional sirens but this did not bother us as I think nowhere in New York is immune.
We had a wonderful stay at the Belvedere and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We were on the 17th (top) foor and found it very suitable.

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the stay. Location was just great. We walked to Time Square, Central Park and Broadway. The room was clean and well appointed.The staff were friendly and it was a quick check in. There was plenty of variety for breakfast. Hot and cold food. There were plenty of places to eat near by. The only complaint was the air con was noisy.

Room Tip: We had an executive room.

A very pleasant, smallish hotel in an excellent location. Very close to Times Square so easy to go to many good Broadway shows. Also within walking distance of Central Park. Nice having a fridge in room and coffee facilities. Very large comfortable bed,although bathroom small but adequate. Staff very helpful at all times. I would be very happy to stay here again.

We stayed for three nights at the Belvedere on a theatre trip to New York. The location was great for getting to the theaters and the tkts booth on Broadway and 46th street. The room was spacious, clean and always made up when we came back to the hotel after breakfast. There were many restaurants close by and the staff was friendly and helpful. We got discount room through Hotwire so for New York it was reasonable. There was a business office where you could have free computer access to print airline boarding passes which was a nice touch. We really had no complaints
