“The worst hotel I've ever stayed in”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is the absolute worst hotel I've ever stayed in and that's not because the rooms are the size of a small closet, the cleaniness as well as the upkeep of the hotel is horrible, the rooms and linen were disgusting, if you are going to stay here (which I strongly DO NOT recommend) bring your own linen and cleaning products

Me and my friends, we stay in this hotel for christmas and for a few weeks. Hotel was very expensive, dirty and noisy. They cleaned the room just once a week. Room was small. But good location. Anyway I dont recommend this hotel. Once and enough. Even I had to pay for the wifi which didnt work.

- elevator extremely small- tight fit for 2 people
- requested queen bed when we got there we were given 2 double beds.We were told no room with queen beds were available. Additionally we were told by staff the room we got was a lot bigger than the queen room. Staff mentioned that queen rooms were just big enough to hold the queens bed.

-no soap
- water down shower gel and shampoo in dispenser

-rusted towel holders/shower/radiators
-stained toilet seats
- paint chipping throughout bathroom
-stained/ unkept tiling in restroom
-no lock on bathroom door
-VERY UNCOMFORTABLE BEDS/ AWFUL PILLOWS/ NO BLANKETS
- woke up with terrible back pain- 1 of the two beds were extremely hard
-pillows were a sack filled with sponge.
-2 windows- no view- saw 2 feet space between buildings.

-EXTREMELY SMALL TV mounted on
wall- 12 inches
-TV mounted so high (touching ceiling) could not hear volume.

-NO carpet or rug
-Room was full tiled
-bathroom style tile throughout room
-hallway smelled bad
-worse of all, after spending 1 night ( only about 5 hours in the room) found bumps on my arms and legs--see picture.

-paid $190.00 for a Wednesday night.
-DEFINITELY THE WORSE HOTEL EXPERIENCE EVER---WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND IT--UNSANITARY/ DIRTY/ UNPLEASANT-

WILL BE CONTACT DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH!!

Room Tip: All rooms are terrible..I stayed on the 2nd floor -- room 218--awful, don't stay. This hotel is...

The room was the size of a walkin closet. It had a set of bunkbeds and a twin bed in it. No room to move around. Although I will say the room was clean. The location wasnt bad, close to subway and taxi's are always driving by. I would not recommened. For 100 more per night you can get a much nicer place.

The budget hotel was located great! Front desk desk staff David and Susie were fabulous! But the rooms were very small and somewhat dated... But the price was very reasonable. So if you're willing to give up luxury or price this is your hotel

My son and I were in NYC for 14 hours, it was his first time there. This hotel was just right for us. Our tiny room had twin beds with clean sheets, a huge bathroom, cable TV and a window. I appreciated the cleanliness and the obvious intent to make the small, sparse room look hip. Did I mention the bathroom? It was almost the same size as the room itself! The front desk guy was nice and we didn't get hustled out of our room one minute after check-out time. If you want romance or luxury go to a different hotel. If you want a clean place to sleep, this place works.
