DO NOT BOOK (WARNING!!)- absolutely terrible ‘service’ from this hotel. I booked months in advance with booking.com under the terms of ‘no prepayment needed - pay at property. The hotel then cancelled my booking one hour before our arrival claiming that they tried to take the money from my account and it failed 1. They wer not meant to take any money until arrival 2. It didn’t and still doesn’t state on booking.com terms that they will take any money before arrival 3. I can see from my bank account that no attempted payment actually took place 4. The hotel/staff did nothing to rectify the problem in any way 5. When I went back in to see how much a room for that night would be it was almost double the price of my original booking. 6. The hotel have not responded to my complaint or contacted me in any way.

Horrible experience as people in room 1116 throwed a party, had loud music, laughing at 2am. Hotel management didn’t react to resolve situation. They have a tall guy with glasses at reception who said they are going to help, but absolutely nothing happened! And I have a flight in the morning. Cheap place in all senses. Never stop here!

Centrally located & quiet hotel, only minutes from Grand Central station, meaning it was very accessible and also easy to get around by train or subway as well as on foot. The room was a decent size, shower was good and powerful, shampoo, conditioner and moisturiser were all included, as well as a nespresso coffee machine. The TV didn’t work and the room didn’t get cleaned once in our 4 day trip, we requested fresh towels though which were brought to the room, you always have to request more coffee capsules and milk. Water was available for free on our floor by the lifts. It was a self checkin and checkout service. All in all it was decent enough, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable room with a good location.

Cant reach anyone before you come , then after you come , they keep sending texts to your phone. The elevator is very slow and there seems to be too many people not enough elevators. You check yourself in , they just stand around. Whats the point of having front desk if they dont do anything.

Pros: Less than five minute walk to subway Central location Free water bottles and fountain to refill bottles Nice rooftop with tables and coffee Keurig in room Table and booth in room to eat Cons: We arrived at 3pm and the room wasn't ready for 1+ hour (they did give us late check out but we didn't need it) No room service offered No liquid soap- just soap bars No bathroom fan or window Sleep quality was quite poor- the door from our neighbors room was loud when they came and went

Great value for money and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We liked the location of the hotel, it is central and walking distance from many of the tourist attractions. We enjoyed the rooftop area, definitely worth your time to buy some snacks and drinks, and enjoy the city life from the roof of the hotel.

I liked the very central location of the hotel, just around the corner from Grand Central station. I would definitely recommend the area ... but not the Hotel Boutique Grand Central! The hotel clearly did not have enough cleaning staff. Our room was not cleaned despite us requesting a clean twice. We were offered a clean the next morning instead ... the day of our departure, which rendered said offer futile. Ours was not a unique case and in fact there were other guests whose rooms had not been cleaned for two consecutive days! Some of the staff were very nice and helpful, others not so much and seemed like the could not care a lot. Also, there was no safe in the room, which in my view is standard practice in city hotels nowadays. I complained about the issues during our stay on our return but so far (a month later), I have not heard back from the hotel manager despite two prompts. The hotel is not cheap, which is why their poor service was surprising to me. I would recommend the Grand Central area for sure - but go for a friendlier, more service-oriented alternative instead.

Good things about the hotel: location! Just across central station. Large rooms. Good price quality. Friendly and efficient reception. Good beds and pillows. Clean. Free coffee, water. Missing: no breakfast services. No safe in the room. No fridge either. Elevators make constant swooshing noise whichever room you are in it seems.

The only thing that is good about this hotel is the location. The room needs a good make over the dark bits makes it look old fashioned Felt like a shoe box Found dirty bed sheets so these hadn’t been changed Very thin toilet paper The heating is so noisy We were on the 2nd floor, there are only 3 lifts so there is a long wait due to the amount of floors in the hotel The gym is tiny, nice to see a wash room with free laundry liquid I definitely would not stay here again as I found the hotel noisy with cars by the post office

Stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of February, hotel location was good however can’t say the same for the hotel! On the 2nd night I had items taken out my room from the housekeeping staff, which were of large cost. Staff were unhelpful and actually quite rude and ended up me having to get in contact with the hotel manager on my last day before it was resolved… This was my first time visiting New York and I tried to not let it ruin my 30th birthday trip away but unfortunately it did!
