I think of this hotel as my home in NYC.. The rooms are small- like dorm rooms but clean, and have showers, a tiny fright, a microwave daily maid service, an airconditioner etc. You can't beat the location- across the street from Riverside, a park, a 10 minute walk to central park and the Museum of Natural History, 2 blocks...

Visited with friends. Old style a bit run down. Rooms are small nothing impressive, staff at reception doing just the bare minimum to reach the threshold of decency. Prices not even so cheap I guess this is as good as it gets on a limited budget

Yes, it's compact, but anything under $200 in Manhattan is going to be. Temperature controlled, mini fridge & microwave, nice front desk assistants, very good location, clean, lots of pillows, Wi-Fi and pull-out trundle. Maybe personal preference, but the mattresses were firm in the extreme.

Nice Staff and a very good location. Rooms very nice and tidy and the price was very good for what we got! I'm coming back soon again the next time we are in New York. I hope it will be as nice as last time we were there in February.

Basic and very small, at least clean room. Towels changed every day. Staff very helpful and consistent. Some problems when paying as Hotel does not accept chip & pin and bank would not let them go ahead.

Tiny, tiny room. "Window" overlooking an airshaft. Loud window-unit air conditioner blowing cold air directly onto my face (the wall was only a few feet away). The room itself was clean enough, but the hallway smelled terrible and there was trash in various places. Not the worst place ever, I guess, but pretty ugly. From my perspective, still not worth...

Beautiful setting right along the river, looks nice from the outside, nice continental breakfast. The rooms are run down, the decks are run down, needs a major remodel. The staff was nice. Overpriced for what you get.

The room is basic but comfortable. The area is great, easy walk to subway, Broadway Street and Amsterdam Avenue. Great supermarket, deli at the corner. Nice and quiet away from the crowds. Parkland across the road and the Hudson River there too. Reception staff were always helpful and friendly.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
