Stayed here from Fri. 24/5/13 to 31/5/13 in a 1 bed apartment, with my wife and 12 year old son. Location is first class, on 49th Street, 50 metres from 7th Avenue. We were on the 8th floor at the rear of the block. The apartments were clean and were cleaned daily, lots of big fluffy white towels were left every day. We never waitedl more than 2 mins. for the lift and the lobby is beautiful with marbled floors. Staff were always pleasant, and one of them even arranged a private cab for our return journey which turned up promptly for our return journey and cost $65 dollars. They do this for a lot of their guests (word of warning here, book your return journey at least 4 hours before your flight home. It took us 2 hours to get to the airport because of Traffic. It was also the same on our arrival. The rooms have fridge with a freezer compartment and a cooker. Utensils are basic, but that was not a problem for us as we only ate breakfast inside the apartment what we bought from several local shops (cereals etc.). Our bedroom had 2 double beds and a pull out sofa in the living area.

Gershwin Theatre is a 5 to10 minute walk around the corner and we saw 'Wicked' here. Centre of Times Square is a 5 minute walk away. Rockefeller Centre and Radio City Music Hall are literally 2 to 300 metres away. We also walked to Central Park which is an easy 15 To 20 min. walk north (you can see the trees of the park from 7th Avenue, 50 yards from the apartments). We also walked to The Empire State Building which again is an easy 15 to 20 min stroll then onto the Flatiron building another 5 min walk further down 5 th Avenue. We even walked to 'Circle Line Cruises' on Pier 83 along Restaurant Row through Hells Kitchen and this took us a steady 20 to 25 minutes from the apartments. We also had a steady 20 minute Walk to Madison Square Garden one evening, a place I had always wanted to see.

There are several eateries next door to the apartments which look outstanding (we never used these places) but by glimpsing in it was obvious they were really nice. This part of 49th Street does not look 'that great' on Google Earth, but rest assured this area is obviously a 'very nice area' when observed at close quarters! There are lots of vendors nearby (on 6th Avenue) selling food etc. I bought fruit from a couple of these and it was outstanding quality! Also Ice creams on our travels.

The subway is also a 100 metre walk and the 'yellow R Line, got us down to Wall Street/Ground Zero area in 10 to 15 minutes.

The staff also have a room where you can leave your luggage on departure day.

To get straight to the point, these apartments made our holiday. We all fell in love with NYC and these apartments are the only place I would consider next time we go.

The apartments were very central, around the corner from Times Square and half a block from Magnolia Bakery and very close to the Rockefeller Centre. Also great location for catching the hop on, hop off buses.Rooms were comfortable, very well maintained and clean. Free Wifi was excellent.Only negative was the noise but you are in the middle of New York, the city that never sleeps:)

Room Tip: We had two stays and room 403 (non smoking) was great for size but a bit noisy being at the front of...

Radio city apts has the best location in midtown manhattan with it proximity to time square, the subways, theatres and great restaurants. Staff are exceptional, rooms are cleaned up like they were not used everyday. As always a great value for an exceptional stay.

We stayed at Radio City Apartments from May 19-22, 2013, and I can't say enough about the accommodations. It's nothing fancy but you can't beat the location - around the corner from Times Square and Radio City Music Hall and a few blocks from 30 Rock. Our apartment had a separate bedroom with 2 double beds, a pull out couch in the living room, a kitchenette and bathroom. We were 4 adults and it didn't feel crowded at all. The building itself is very clean and well maintained. We had a problem with the window in the living room and it was fixed immediately. It was warm while we were in New York so we had to turn on the air conditioners, which were quite noisy but that's the only negative that I have. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this location, without hesitation.

Room Tip: If driving, ask about parking. There is a nearby lot where the hotel will give you a ticket to reduc...

We travel to NY every year and have been staying at the same hotel in Times Square because the area is perfect for all we do during our trip. On this trip, a couple of weeks ago, we decided to try a new place and stumbled upon Radio City Apartments so we booked one night to see what it's like staying at this property. I booked our reservation before we left for the trip on line, confirmed the reservation before leaving San Francisco and when we checked into the hotel, we couldn't have been more pleased. Not only did they upgrade us from a studio with two beds, but they upgraded us to a one bedroom with two beds. It was roomy, fully equipped with everything we would need if we were staying longer, it was quiet especially at night, and the best part was that the rates were much better than where we had been staying in the past, and what was even better was that the location is practically in the same area, close to all the attractions we need to visit and our favorite restaurants, and walking distance to all the theaters to see the plays we had booked. We decided that next year when we plan our annual trip, we will stay at the Radio City Apartments. We did not have a view of anything from our 5th floor room, and while there wasn't a closet for clothes, there was a clothes track in the corner to hang up the clothes which for us was fine. The kitchen size was ample for cooking in but other than make coffee or fix a snack, it worked for us. And the car rental agency was just around the corner. What was also a strong point was the courtesy, friendliness and efficiency of the staff at the front desk.

This is an older hotel but well located to Times Square and the theater. My friend and I had a room with 2 double beds, no desk or chairs, but a microwave, and refrigerator which made it nice for breakfast and tea. Nothing fancy but clean enough and our room was quiet.

Radio City Apartments are in a great location and very reasonable for NYC.
My husband and I were staying one night in the city and didn't want to pay some of the exorbitant fees of a larger hotel. Finding this on Booking.com, this was a wonderful find. I highly recommend Radio City Apartments, we stayed in the twin room, yes, it's small but heck it was for one night. It was clean, bath was updated, the room had a small kitchenette with a table & two chairs. Flat Screen TV was new. Only complaint, would be the old, squeaky mattresses which needed updating but were comfortable for the night. Bedding, also could be updated.
The front desk staff were friendly and professional. Yes, we are coming back and staying longer! I would even request our same room! Thanks, Radio City for a wonderful stay!
