Could not be in a better location, right in the heart of times square. The room is very old fashioned and small, but comfortable and as your in New York only needed as a pit stop! We recommend eating at Johns pizza which is down a side street at the back of the hotel, and visit the charmin store, you... More

The rooms were nothing special but for the price we paid in the incredible location I couldn't have expected more. I requested a refrigerator in the room prior to the stay and it was not in the room when we got there but the staff were very quick to see my request was met. I was very satisfied with my... More

Just returned from trip to New York and having checked out other hotels around the city whilst there, this hotel is an absolute steal. No better location to be found, central for everything and whilst in the heart of Times Square, minimal noise in bedroom. In fact would go as far as to say this is the best sleep I... More

The website says it all. Great location. About half a block west of Times Square. Walking distance to shopping and many attractions. It's an older hotel, but clean and well kept. It's very busy so if you are planning on checking in early you may be out of luck. There's a great little pub just west of the hotel on... More

The location is good because is walking distance from Times Square. The Hotel is standard for NY as the rooms that are quite small but in this price range in NY all the rooms are small! The service staff was average. Is a good choice if you look for a not so much expensive hotel in that area.

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.
