This hotel is conveniently located and the price is right. The staff is friendly. The sink did not work and the staff attempted to fix it with mixed results. If traveling for theatre this has the perfect location and the lowest price. But you get what you pay for, the lobby is tattered and is in desperate need of a... More

We booked this hotel for our last night in New York and wanted something central as had previously stayed downtown. You definitely get what you pay for as it was only about £100 for the night. The hotel is very run down inside and needs serious money spending on decorating, carpeting etc. The carpets on the stairways and so worn... More

I confirm all negative remarks, Stay Away. You have to walk a lot in NYCity, trust me you can find accommodations much better and at better cost. Where do I start....so sad of a place. Employees as a whole try, must be frustrating! Very humbling. Never been charged for luggage storage, is this now common? Very disorganized system of retrieving... More

What a dump. AVOID: Rooms are shabby and falling apart. Very, very small. Walk into hot hot dark humid mucky room and can't find switches. Ironing board moved next to the door and fell on my head in the dark when we opened the door. Wallpaper is peeling, carpeting is coming up and bathroom tiles stick to your feet. Toilet... More

First stay here, definitely not the last. Room was extremely cramped but for a single traveller on a budget you probably couldn't find a better place in the heart of Manhattan and Broadway. Like any major city NY is cramped and expensive but if you just need a clean, comfortable, quiet place for a base it can't be beaten. I... More

We chose this hotel because it was the only "affordable" accommodation near Times Square. It's old-fashioned which adds to the charm, and is clean with good sized rooms. There is a tiny elevator which is pretty cool as it is extremely old and vintage. The hotel is walking distance to everything, which was the best! It also has AC which... More

First off, location is FABULOUS! Next door and across the street from 2 Broadway shows; merely blocks away from others. Times Square and Rockefeller Center a short walk away. Two subway stations within 1/2 a block in either direction. Hell's Kitchen restaurants within walking distance. Anything and everything you want to see or do close by or a short subway... More

It is located at Time Square so location is good otherwise nothing else is worth recommending. The carpets in the lobby and lift are worn out, the rooms are in need of serious repair. If you want to only come to the room to spend the night then bearable otherwise not recommended

Stayed here recently in the middle of new Yorks latest heat wave. The hotel is in a great location, close to time square and rockerfella centre and has great subway links near by. The hotel itself is clearly old, once run down its clearly going through a change and trying to pitch itself as a great budget hotel. The rooms... More

We booked this hotel after a lot of research and browsing on innumerable sites as we were booking at the last moment just couple of days before our travel and we had a budget we were working with! Mayfair Inn is all about the location. If you are in NY solely for the purpose of sightseeing with a average budget... 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.
