“crap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2010

i stayed at hotel 52 during my first trip to new york along with my girlfriend.

good points: um, it's quite well located.

bad points: sheesh, where to start? the accommodation wasn't cheap, but it was poor. furniture, fixtures and fittings all seemed 'tired' (to try to be polite), the self-catering functions not actually functioning (a bit of an issue when you've gone for self-catering!), the room was scarcely secure (a rickety lock on the door which would barely have withstood a sharp wind and a window that looked out on to the fire escape that wouldn't shut), then there was the drilling that began at about 8:30 each morning - noisily waking us up and caking the common areas in dust.

the hapless handyman called joey tried to help, but all we got (on the day we left) were some vouchers to the owner's diner - not somewhere we'd have chosen to go (and this being new york, they awarded themselves a handsome tip from the voucher amount!).

The location is good but my goodness what a disaster of an appartment! I booked for four people. We arrived in the evening. There was no check in procedure at all. We had one duvet, no kettle, no cooker, microwave didnt work, tv didnt work, there was not enough cutery or delf for 4 people either. We were told that we wouldnt get any help till the next day. Which meant a night with no sleep and freezing cold. The sofa bed mattress was awful. The following day some of the items were dealt with. It was very hard to get people and they said they would ring back and never did. Definitely not value for money. We booked an appartment so to have independance and to cook for ourselves too. Didnt happen!!!!!

  • Liked — location but not enough to book it again!
  • Disliked — we didnt have access to appartment facilities ie:kettle, cooker ect...
  • Stayed September 2008, traveled with friends
