I stayed there for 5 days and it was perfect as I spent the days visiting the city. The location is amazing, 2 minute walk from the south entrance of Central Park and a subway station with most of the lines. My room was really small but it was really clean, it had a small flat TV and a drawer. I stayed in the 11th floor, which seemed that had been renewed lately, so i didn't hear almost anything from there.The shared bathroom was clean every time I went and most of the times it was empty and never had any problem with the toilets or showers.
There's a small shop to buy any kind of snacks and/or breakfast: they have coffee, cereals, sandwiches, juices, muffins,...
I give a 4 beacuse the nearest plug to the bed was at the end of it and i had trouble with that because the alarm clock of my phone doesn't ring if the phone is turned off and the cable of the charger was not long enough. Also, the A/C was noisy and i had to unplug it so it finally stop making noise because even switched off, it made noise.
Really worth the location
