Other reviews pretty much say it all. A few steps from the 86 4/5/6 station, so transportation was easy, and all the museums a few blocks away. The rooms are tiny, but if you are a solo traveler you have seen smaller in Europe and can make due. Staff very attentive, butt he hotel is old and the rooms could use refurbishing. The elevator reminds me of an old Soviet era elevator I saw once oversees. In the event you run out of tings to do in NYC (HA!), there are sushi places everywhere and even an AMC theatre practically next door. Hotel will provide a private car service to JFK for $60. Breakfast only so-so, was not around for afternoon snacks.
