“Nice hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

The location of this hotel is great, being a short walk from Times Square it gives you easy access to all the major sights in NYC via the subway system. There's a very nice and friendly bar just a few doors down. The rooms are small but that's to be expected in Manhattan, the bathroom was lovely, room was clean with a firm but comfortable bed. The view was lacking and there were no coffee making facilites or on site breakfast available, but there's plenty of places nearby. The room was quieter than expected and the service was excellent. I would say that if this hotel was in any other location it would be massively over-priced, but for New York it is pretty good value for money and a good mid-range option. Would return and recommend.

This was a great hotel to stay in if you want to do all the tourist things. It is in a great location, close to Times Square and the subway. Also you are in the heart of Hells Kitchen which is bustling! The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very quite and overall it was a great place to stay. Would definitely stay there again. Only minus was there was no air conditioning which might be a real problem during the hot summer months!

Enjoyed our stay here at WJH in New York. Small hotel and rooms but had all the basics you could need! Handy to all areas of the city including Central Park and plenty of shops! I would recommend and would stay again for the location and price compared to some other hotel chains that cost double!

Stayed solo in a petite room. Room size is what was expected and advertised, it was a tiny room.

What I liked:
- Room and hotel are clean, well-maintained.
- Staff are quick to assist and nice.
- Petite room had a decent size bathroom, shower, with a full length mirror, and amenities
- There was enough space for my suitcase on the floor of the room
- Location was a short distance to Times square and midtown Manhattan. At the same time, it was not a busy street so it gave a little bit of reprieve from the crowd and the noise.

What I didn't like so much:
- Bathroom windows, although slightly frosted, were directly across the shower and didn't give you a feeling of full privacy.
- Room window blinds were the same -- didn't provide sufficient privacy.
- It would have been nice if there was better ventilation / central air-conditioning. Because the room is tiny, it can feel a bit stuffy and uncomfortable.
- Lights are too dim in the room
- You could hear footsteps of people passing by the hall, vacuuming in the morning, or doors shutting -- which can get annoying if you're trying to get some decent sleep at night.

Overall, it was a good value for money.

This is not an impersonal place to stay. The property is small, which means the well-selected and trained staff give each guest the feeling that you are their most important one. Wonderful experience.
