What an excellent surprise this hotel turned out to be! For that price I was afraid of what I'd find. And what I found was this: very small, very clean room, nice view of Riverside Park, West Side Highway, and the river. Microwave & fridge. Comfy bed. And super-nice, super-friendly staff! I had to change my original online reservation; I... More

First impression of the hotel is that it is a little shabby. Arriving late, and after a long journey, there was nothing on offer to purchase as refreshment, so had to venture out to find water. Given a chance to explore, however, it became clear that it is a great base to visit New York. Overlooking the Hudson River, and... More

This is the standard fare of a hotel in the Big Apple. It's been a while since I was there, so I don't remember the ins and outs, but I do remember it being very peaceful and clean. It was honestly one of the nicer hotels that I've stayed at in NYC.

My family and I travelled to NYC from Aug.1st to the 4th. Since this hotel is situated right beside the Hudson River, there was minimal traffic for a large city like New York. The pros: Location. Amazingly placed at the end of 80th and Riverside Drive, there is a park right across the street. The area is beautiful, peppered with... More

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.

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.
