The hotel is much more worn-out than shown on the pictures. The room terribly smells of cleaning chemicals (and something else). After the stay the smell penetrated into all my clothes and belongings. Wrinkled bed sheets and a thin blanket (requires heating at nights). Walls are extremely thing - you can hear your neighbours coughing and talking.
Breakfast is more of a joke, but perhaps it makes some people happy, so I won't comment on it.
Neighbourhood is awful - moving towards the Union Square you have to walk through 4-5 blocks full of homeless, junkies, drug dealers etc.
Very unfriendly and arrogant young male receptionist (others were nice though). Entering the hotel you have to drag your luggage 5-6 stairs up (never saw the porter anywhere around).
Never again - you can add 30 bucks and stay at a much nicer place in a better neighbourhood.
