“Large hotel & Value for money!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Have stayed in New York Hotel for more than 5 occasions. This time round we Rented 2 adjoining triple deluxe family rooms at about SGD100 per night @ with breakfast. Local breakfast spread was so-so. The rooms were large and clean with a queen-size & one single bed. One of the room also had a sofa-bed while the other room was complete with sofa seatings. One of the 3 lifts is still under maintenance while the other 2 seemed like they will break-down anytime. The indoor pool on the 11th floor is not as clean as i would like for the kids to play in but the jaccuzzi is great! Although the Wifi was weak in the rooms, the sevice was prompt and efficient! The lobby, restaurant & pool have the strongest signal.

Room Tip: 'Arani' Car polish right opposite the hotel is both fast, clean & efficient! MYR180 for...

This hotel attracted me is indoor pool as we plan to escape haze from S'pore. Walk in w/o reservation, managed to get room @MYR170 offer a queen size bed.
Lift is a real problem,it has 3 lifts, only 1 or 2 working sometimes.
Small room with a sofa, nice scenary, tv is old, reception not clear for channel 5, wifi not accessible though password given upon check in.
Breakfast is offer fried mee, rice, curry, toast bread, cereal, salad,etc. I'm not fussy with food, but this cafe really disappointed us, left after 15mins.
For supper, we bought food at nearby eateries (1min walk). Fav food is mobile truck offer 'lok lok' cost MYR1.60~MYR3 per stick.
Overall just an average hotel, don't expect to much.

My mum and son stayed here, the service was great and the staff were friendly, however the room we were in on the 18th floor smelt like it had febreeze odour spray sprayed over everything and blocked our sinuses each night that we had stayed(4 in total) The rooms definitely need a revamp. The breakfast had a variety of foods and was the highlight of our stay

The New York hotel is very run down. The lifts are extremely frustrating taking forever to come. (That is if they are working at all!) The rooms are not worth what you pay. There are so many other hotels in the area don't waste your time and money here.

The rooms may be spacious and big. Bur for 250 one would expect:
-there to be Non Smoking rooms a valuable, but according to front desk all are smoking rooms....
so Non smokers should not stay here.
-The TV has NO asto channels are often grainy

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. It's overall ok to stay for few days.

The buffet breakfast provides local food, and simple western food, such as toast, buns, corn flakes... you know, not many varieties but enough to get your stomach full.

The room is spacious with a king size bed and it's comfortable, but the old small TV has bad resolution.

The car park and Wifi are free but the car park has no security and the internet is almost zero speed in my room at 21 floor. Outside the room has lobby where internet works better.

The surrounding has lots of hawker centers and a popular Thai seafood restaurant that is packed with people but I would recommend a nearby decent cafe called Asian Spice where you can find western snacks and the pizza was yummy. You just need to press the buttons and the waiter will tend to you shortly. The internet in that cafe is much faster than New York Hotel.
