Clean decent budget hotel. Rooms are very basic and small, but great value for money. Not far from subway, so easy to get down town. A coat of paint and new flooring will do wonders. Reception friendly and helpful. Will stay here again.

Scruffy public areas. Room small but clean and comfortable. Good value for NYC. Great location - quiet and felt safe. Close to 79th subway station, central park and Zabar's. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Would stay there again.

I would not rely on the elevators so if you have someone that needs one this is not the place for you. They were out of service for much of our time spent there so we needed to walk up 6 flights of stairs, which after the marathon was not fun.

Good price/location ratio. The rooms are rather small but clean. An interesting "detail" in the form of a "walk-through bathroom" which connects two rooms. Don't expect anything too fancy but for the neighborhood! The hotel is located in the Upper West Side neighborhood (quiet and safe) of NYC not far from the Hudson River and walking distance to 79th Street... More

The personnel was really nice and helped me out with my broken luggage even if they were not supposed to carry it from the street. The room was small but nice, and the bathroom was very clean. Nice location ad really close to the subway station, which makes it great for staying if you want to visit New York and... More

Location was good for this hotel, only a few metro stops to most sight seeing places in the city. The room was super tiny, we struggled with two of us and didn't really have room to open suitcases as the bed took up the whole room.pretty much. For 3 nights we paid £350 which I thought was pretty steep but... More

Rooms are small and "European style". This isn't a posh hotel, but it's is clean and a great price for a fantastic location. Right next to Riverside park and in walking distance of central subway stops. If in NYC, you don't need to spend a lot of time in your hotel room anyway!!

It's old, the rooms are small (like teeny, tiny) and it kinda smells BUT if you only shower and sleep here- It's all you really need. Good Stuff: Great Staff! Nice towels. They held my bag for me after I checked out so I could explore the UWS. 1 mile to a several major museums and Central Park. Safe and... More

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.
