Have stayed here on 2 visits to New York and could not recommend it enough! Felt very safe in the rooms (I am a nervous traveler). The bedrooms are quite small but very comfortable, complete with a tv for each bed. The staff could not have been more pleasant and were very accommodating when we asked for one room to be changed to a double room. It is in an incredible location, close to grand central station and the river for transport (and fireworks on 4th of July). Would recommend the breakfast in the bar downstairs, very affordable for a good New York breakfast. Also the Italian restaurant on the corner has amazing food for couples or families.

I was working on a project with the UN when I stayed here. The proximity to the UNHQ was a big selling point for this hotel. I thought it was very well located for a midtown hotel but if I wasn't in NYC for work, I would find things to be far from here. The hotel was amazing - the staff was super friendly and the little bar on the ground floor really was a great place to hang out and meet people. The room was a little small (it would have been cramped if there was more than just me) but had all the necessities and was very very comfortable. I would highly recommend this for young travelers who are in New York for work.

Finally an affordable hotel that's cool (and not seedy) and at a great location. Perfect for two people on the go. Modern furnishings, quiet hallways, great AC, plenty of hot water and one of the best affordable, open-air rooftop bars around. We'll be back!

I stayed in one of the bunk bed rooms with my 78 year old uncle (Detroit raised, US Expat living in Germany, bicycling enthusiast). This was the perfect place for us--very comfortable beds, good outlet access for our electronic devices, clean and modern, and a great base for lots of walking, subway rides, and buses. Were were there over the 4th of July and enjoyed watching the fireworks and dancing on the rooftop (there was an extra $35 charge for hotel guests for rooftop access for the 4th). The breakfast provided for an extra charge was a bit heavy on the carbs, but great conversation with the man who runs the breakfast service. There is fresh fruit & other food items nearby available for sale. We were older than most of the guests, but they were from all over world and staff and guests were very friendly and helpful, we fit right in, great time!

If you’re going to New York alone or with your significant other and will ONLY be sleeping in the room and not hanging out. Then this hotel is the one to get. The shower was nice and the room was very clean. But just like the hotel suggests of course all rooms are “Pod” like Rooms. So if you are someone used to big amounts of space you will feel very claustrophobic. This was perfect for me as I was going on a quick 2 day business trip to New York and this was very close to where I needed to be.
