Such an amazing location for the price! Great base hotel. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy. Its a bit old and tatty but you have to see past that. Traffic noise wasn't too bad. The bar and restaurant attached serves teally nice Italian food. I recommend the mushroom ravioli and chicken milanase. Right next door to book of morman (... More

Just like the previous reviews I can only repeat that the rooms are dated and small but the bed is comfortable and the shower adequate. The hotel staff are great and particularly helpful when trying to find your way around NY. Our friends tried the hotel bar and found it expensive even by NY standards. Location wise it is great,...

This hotel was just perfect for what I wanted. It may be a bit on the older side, so am I, but the room was very clean, the staff was cordial, helpful and friendly. I will gladly stay at the Mayfair on my next visit.

Lovely, older hotel- close to everything. The rooms are a bit small but very quiet, well appointed, mattresses are comfy & bath was newly updated. Staff was courteous & friendly. Many guests from all over the world who were eager to visit & socialize. We will be back!

If you just want a cheap hotel in a good location, the Mayfair is fine. Very run-down, "tired" European-style hotel (i.e., tiny rooms). Really no amenities, and don't bother eating in the restaurant on the ground floor; there are too many other good choices nearby.

Good points, brilliant location right in the heart of things.staff are great and very helpful. Bad points, the hotel is dated and needs upgrading. The rooms are small and basic. There are no tea and coffee facilities which is a basic must have really . There is a safe in the room which is free, so I should have added... More

Stayed for a couple of nights back in August 2015. Location is great, right around the corner from Times Square. Rooms are very small (as is the norm in NYC) and in fact the bathroom was almost the same size as our room- would make more sense to reduce the size of the bathroom to make the room larger.

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

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.
