Room was very small but adequate as we didn't spend much time there, noisy air conditioning and no tea or coffee making facilities. The location is very good for Hell's Kitchen and Time Square. I would probably not go back there though it was good value for money it was just too small for us

Great location of this hotel. We were a short walk from just about everything. I did love the old nostalgia of this place and it was surprisingly quiet. Friendly staff. Room was spacious. The worst part of this stay was the bed. Hard as a rock! Literally! Felt like I was sleeping on the ground. If you want a good... More

The hotel location is perfect. It is in the middle of the most interesting New York atractions, and nearby the panoramic buses main stop. Inside the hotel it is quite, safe and confortable. I highly recommend this place.

We visited this hotel in April 2016 and visited New York for 6 nights. This hotel is in a fantastic location and that is key for New York! However the rooms are very old and need refurbishing! They are also tiny- can barely get two suitcases in there! The shower is good however it is in a very small bathroom.... More

My husband and I stayed for four nights in early August, 2016. We asked for a lower floor, off street room and were given #172. It was on the first floor which was good as we did not have to use the one and only, very tiny and old, elevator to access our room. However, the room is down the... More

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Staff is very friendly. I stayed in one of the standard queen bedrooms on the sixth floor. The size of the room is normal for NY standards. It is however a little outdated. Lights in the room are scarce. The ac is one of those typical units placed in the window. It... More

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.
