You can also take the Jamaica bound Airtran, but be sure is not the inner loop between terminal. Ask before entering the JFK train. By airtrain you have to stop at the Jamaica Center at Sutphin Blvrd. You have to pay $5.00 at the center to leave the place, buy a Metrocard to do it. Walk by the Sutphin Blrv, 100 mts, turn left at Jamaica Ave. at the Capital One corner to the left. You are now in the Jamaica Avenue. Walk 200 mts. The hotel is at your left. Taxis at NY are expensive. If you can walk, can safe hundreds of dollars. Each taxi ride can cost you $25.00. Hotel have free WIFI, very strong signal at the Room. I was in room 108. Non smoking room. Smoking rooms area smells like hell cigarettes. I am a non smoker. Air conditiones makes some noise, but you do not hear it after some time. I saw many Russians people staying here.
Hotel staff is willing to help you always. But any request should be made in the morning. Before you leave. In the evening, they can not fix anything for you. My TV did not work. It was inmediately fixed. Brealfast is also FREE, very nice coffe. Waffles, toast, very fresh food. This is a bargain.
There is also a Macdonalds, a Wendys, a Subway, a Dunkin Donuts, and supermarkets at walking distance. You can buy a calling card at the nearby supermarket for $5.00, and save you many money calling home. Hotel staff can explain you how to call home cheaper.
Hotel is locate 5 minutes walking from the Van Wyck Jamaica Subway Station. If you dominate the subway, you dominate the city. nThe subway map can be found at the NY metro website. Download it, print is a color version, and take it with you at all times. Can be complicated, see where you are going. This is the "stone face" state. Old people have "stoneface", young people help you a lot. Ask them, you will see. Always ask where you go to someone. Never take a train without knowing where you go. Is a $2.25 train cost each ride. Buy a $20.00 metrocard and refill it if needed. Is very easy. There are videos at u tbe. See the, very instructives. Also, use street views at Gu gul maps, you can travel by the streets of NY in advance, see where to eat and go.
Restrooms--This is a serious problems at NY. Difficult to find one. They deny you to use it. Tip, there is a Brgr kng beside Empire SBlng. You buy something and you will be given the key to use it. Restrooms have a "Customes only" sign on the door. You can find restrooms at the building with observatory facilities.
Manhattan NY is a very agitated city. I saw it clean and safe.
Metro is clean, there are always some beggars and crazy people asking for money. Do not look at them. It can take 35 minutes ton arrive from hotel to Manhattan by subway. 8am is rush hour. This means full trains. Everybody in the train sleep inside with earphones.
Remember, ask young people for directions. Older people here are still living 2 decades back. "Stone face people".
Hotel premises. Hotel is located in a local neighborhood. Other reviews say "scary neighborhood" i found it very interesting. I saw in their faces, the latins, the indians, the jews, the black and americans, that work for the minimum federal salary, the unwanted ones, the faces the Government do not show. Is very safe to walk around. Nobody will hurt you. You will see the real America. Hidden from you. Very nice and humble people.
If you need a one night hotel during a layover. This is a hotel with an Airport Shuttle.
Staff is wonderfull. I will be back next year. Hotel room was always clean and neat. Give it a try. I recommend it.
