“Great place right in the heart of Times Square”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I stayed here and really enjoyed it. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I was a bit worried that it would be really loud staying in the middle of Time Square, but I was amazed by how quiet it was! The location made it so easy to get around in New York, and as a single girl travelling alone I felt very safe walking around at night - Times Square is so busy and lit up, and because the hotel was right there I didn't have to use the subway late at night. It is also walking distance from Penn Station, so it was really easy and cheap to get to the airport (Newark).

The wine and cheese reception is a nice extra, as are the constantly available snacks. The rooms are well stocked with added extras too. I would recommend this place and stay here again.

my boyfriend and i stayed in this hotel in december 2012. i cant fault this hotel at all, its in a great location if you want to do shopping, as its right next to times square. the staff were lovely, polite and helpful. the room was comfortable, clean and tidy. its excellent value for money. the complimentary breakfast in the mornings was really good, and the fact that you could go and get tea and coffee whenever you wanted through the day was great, and we enjoyed sitting in the lounge and enjoying the complimentery cheese, biscuits and prosecco in the evenings. we were there for 4 nights and it really was wonderful, i would reccomend this hotel to anyone as i cant fault it at all, we are planning to go back to new york, so will deffinately be going back to this hotel.

We stayed here this week and found it to be a great little hotel. I always look on Trip Advisor when booking a new hotel and only look at the reviews marked "terrible" as obviously all the others will be similar. This hotel is just around the corner from Times Square but remarkably quiet. We heard no traffic or general noise from anywhere. The room was quite small but the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Reception staff were professional, welcoming and helpful. We also had the best pasta dish at the adjoining restaurant Tonys of Napoli which was very convenient when tired and freezing cold outside. All in all a very pleasant stay and we would most certainly stay there again. (We may have been lucky with the room I can't say but it was room 308).

Room Tip: Our room was the quietest we have ever had whilst staying in New York although I suspect the fact th...

A reasonable price for a superb Times Square location. Although not oriented to children, my eight-year-old boy thought it was every bit as enjoyable as I did. The lounge was a nice place to relax in the evening, with a reasonable light continental breakfast in the morning. I highly recommend Casablanca!

The Casablanca Hotel exceeded our expectations, from booking to check-out. Beautiful decor, comfortable room, excellent service from all staff.
Prime location, close to Times Square but very quiet for the rest. Breakfast and wine and cheese in the evening very good.
Surely we will return!

Rooms were small but cosy - there is everything you need and more. The staff was friendly and always ready to help you in any possible way. Wine and cheese in the afternoon - what a lovely way to relax and then continue exploring that wonderful city!

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights. She turned 16 whilst we were there and we received a complimentary bottle of bubbly (apple cider) of which I now realised I forgot to say thank you for - so thank you very much! The staff were lovely and the breakfast and wine/cheese was a wonderful welcome well received after a long day sight seeing.
My only problem was with the noise from the street as the road was being resurfaced between 1am and 4am and I'm a terribly light sleeper. The staff offered us a new room but couldn't match our suite, so we declined. I'm sure we were just unlucky...
