We booked a junior studio for 3 adults and were disappointed. The room contained a queen bed and a futon - which was supposed to sleep an adult. The description said that there would be a refrigerator but there was no room in the studio for this. Very misleading. Best thing about the hotel is the exit.

This hotel is under renovation so the check in area is quite a mess. The renovated rooms are quite nice but on the small side. There is no lift so be prepared to haul bags up some very narrow stairs. This will quite the nice place when all is finished.

The hotel was disgusting. They booked us in on the 5th floor, but never told us there was no lift. We had to carry our own luggage, which was 6 suitcases and four back packs ourselves. No one offered to help. The hotel was being renovated, but we were never told this, the smell, dust, dirt, noise were too much,... More

On arrival, my thirst thought was "God, what have we done!". The entrance looks rather seedy and is surrounded by building notices. However, do not let first impressions full you - the interior is recently renovated (still ongoing) and very clean. The rooms are tidy and spacious enough (we spent four nights here) and again very clean. The air-conditioning is... More

I went for a 3-night stay with my husband and 3-year old daughter. The location is just perfect - close to anything you need. Rooms and bathroom are renovated. I must though, advise that what they call junior suite is not a suite, it's just a bedroom. And the bedroom is really small (well, this is the Manhattan reality). There... More

Great location. However, they are currently having work done to the front lobby area. What was not enjoyable is the lack of hot water! During our 4 day stay only 1.5 of my showers were hot (tried to have 2 showers a day due to the hot sticky weather). After speaking with the front desk early evening we magically had... More

The room was small but clean and perfect for what I needed. The bathroom was a decent size, clean and recently remodeled. There is a nice bar restaurant next door that had good beers on tap and happy hour pricing. The rooms air conditioner was silent and kept the room cold. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. Really couldn't ask... More

This hotel was a "real" New York experience in that we felt like we were staying in a New York style apartment which added to our wonderful experience of the city. Close to subway on 16th Street and close to both 5th and 6th Avenue. Time Square is a reasonable walk as well. While the rooms are very small, you... More

Very pleased with the room. The hotel is currently doing renovations but that didn't matter to me. My room was recently renovated, clean, modern, and comfortable. Yes the room was small but I knew that going in...besides this is Manhattan! Great location. The staff did their job...not overtly friendly but again this is Manhattan.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
