located a 10 minute walk to times square, uptown and downtown buses close as is the subway station. First impressions weren't stunning but over the week I accepted the place was a great bolt hole, to sleep in and change, bathe etc. The best bit was the helpful staff, and the buffet breakfast, which fantastic, a great way to start the day and fill up before the day;s exploring. great mix of nationalities there bit like the UN. and the price for the room was great. loved watching the world go by from window, horses buggies and taxi repair shop

This hotel provided some things we found very difficult to get in Manhattan, namely proximity to where we wanted to be and affordability. We slept well. The water was hot. The wifi worked well. There was a breakfast. We really liked exploring the area. The busy staff were helpful. The other guests were a mix, but many were budget-minded Europeans like us. We greatly appreciated these things and are glad we stayed there. The hotel does have issues (which I will not list here). It calls on you to be adventurous, proactive and patient. Consider the trade-offs. But it is a nice hotel in the end. We would definitely stay there again. It's a two-star property, but we enjoyed our visit to Manhattan, so I'm giving it 3 stars. (If I were rating this on AirBNB, I'd give it 5/5.)

I did not expect an extravagant hotel when I booked it because it was inexpensive. I also didn’t expect something that is more of a motel rather than a hotel. Sad, but true: -The bed had no mattress, just a hard, cheap, thin foam top -The bathroom tub was rusty and the shower curtain discolored -The room was very small -It had a smell when you turned the heat on -It is a far walk from all of the major spots such as Times Square and Broadway -If it wasn’t two of us, I probably wouldn’t have walked to and from the hotel Some of the hotel staff was helpful in the sense that when we needed something they were quick to assist. And overall, the staff was very pleasant. There was an instance where I went to the front desk to ask for towels and was told something along the lines of finding the housekeeper on my own to ask for some. I wouldn’t stay there again. Sometimes you’re just looking for a place to just drop your bags off because you don’t plan on being in the room that much. Maybe this hotel is for you?

Location: It’s a good place where to stay if you don’t mind to be in a cool area. The hotel is in a kind of industrial area, but at the same time very close by walk to the central area (times square and surroundings). Hotel: the room was nothing special. The towels were dirty, with hair and spotted. The breakfast: was quiete good. In general could be a good stay if the price is low and related to quality.

The hotel was very close to the convention center, but on a dark side street. Hotel is older and needs remodeled alot mostly the rooms- it didn't feel super clean or safe. Bed was hard, bathroom needed scrubbed. I am not a clean freak, but if you are looking for a comparison to even a Hampton Inn or Quality Inn aside from the more prominent hotels, don't go here.
