Having been on assignment in NYC from the UK, the AKA UN became my home away from home for the last 5 months. The apartments offer great comfort and are very clean and spacious – much better than staying in a normal hotel room and exceeding other serviced apartments that I have seen in the City. You get all the... More

I visited a friend staying for four weeks, and the spacious appartment worked fine for overnight guests as well. The appartment is really nice and gives a homy feeling, and has a small balcony. Kitchen is functional. Cleaning could have been better. Good location in order to reach "everything" in NYC mostly by foot.

This extended stay property offers huge, luxurious rooms at prices that are difficult to find in NY City, even for the usual tiny, dingy room. I booked a one week stay, 5 nights for business and 2 nights at the end for pleasure. The room & proeprty was exactly as nice as pictured on the web site. The one bedroom... More

Had a great time in NYC! The staff at A.K.A made it even more enjoyable. Very friendly and knew a lot about the area. Suggested great restaurants and places to go!! At the end of the night always staff always asked where we went and how we liked it. The rooms are nice. Fairly clean, but not like home. I... More

We stayed at the AKA United Nations while visting New York. The location was convenient and the facilities clean and adequate. However, the place was next to a construction site and we were woken up at 7AM every morning (including weekends) to the noise of heavy drilling and other construction work. Traffic noise (honks from taxis and garbage trucks) was... More

We stayed in NY over the Christmas / New Year holiday and I have to say we were delighted with the property. The complex is new, modern and spotless throughout. As for the apartment, it was exactly like the photos on the website we had used. There is a selection of tea and coffee and snacks (mini muffin or scones)... More

A fantastic find...

I bought a package at the United Nations property on LuxuryLink.com and was disappointed after having stayed at seven other LuxuryLink hotels. This extended stay facility isn't a true hotel and doesn't have the level of maintenance that a hotel would have. The floors are peeling, the drapes dirty, the linen rough and scratchy. It does have much more space... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
