Rooms are SMALL! No A/C and ROACHES EVERYWHERE. The maintenance guy came to room and sprayed roach spray and I had an asthma attack from the spray, spent the night in the hospital and now they are refusing to refund my money!

Really close to the subway. The location was perfect in upper west side. Only about a 3 min walk to Central Park. Good food in the area as well. The rooms were clean and the Staff was very helpful. Also was in a quiet area, but with still much to do.

Took the private room. Great stuff very welcoming and attentive. Good internet, decent room. Shower a bit small. Quite close to the park, and very close to the train station on 96th. Lines 1,2,3. Air condition is good but a bit noisy.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
