The Distrikt was a really perfect place. We came for a friends party and it was a great night. I booked to stay for three nights and would have loved to stay longer. It's in a good location, close to theatres and restaurants. The room was large, comfy and the colours were muted and classy. Great for exploring and in walking distance of trains etc. Sweet staff, and the price was a treat. You would look hard and long for a better place to stay.

I was recently in Manhattan to attend a show at the Javits Center. In the past there has been a dearth of hotels within easy walking distance, but that has changed. The Distrikt was a very short easy walk from the center. There are a reasonable number of restaurants and amenities in the neighborhood as well. It is situated next to the Port Authority Bus station, as there are a few vestiges of a seedier time in the neighborhood nearby, but it was not a bad neighborhood feel for Manhattan.

The room was decent size by Manhattan standards, with a workable desk and good internet access. I was happy to find that the window opened so I could get fresh air (I hate sealed hotel rooms!). For my taste the bed was too soft, I prefer a firm mattress rather than the soft foam provided. The bathroom was fine, though the hot water was seriously scalding. I couldn't turn the shower past 25% without getting burned!

There was a lack of amenities in the public spaces, the breakfast room/restaurant was pretty spartan and doubled as a somewhat sad bar in the evenings. This was disappointing and I ended up going around the corner to a different hotel's bar in the evening when I wanted a nightcap.

The front desk staff, and all of the employees were cheerful and very helpful.

All in all, a reasonably good, no frills experience for a business trip.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better, less noisy. Back rooms look onto back of hotel in next block, so little pr...

We absolutely loved the hotel. The service was next to nothing. Our whole stay was a breeze. Everyone was so friendly and willing to help. We went on our honeymoon and they delivered a delicious cake and hand written card to our room! It was a nice touch. They also had free warm apple cider at reception which was perfect for the cold month we arrived in. The room was modern and a decent size. We found this hotel to be great value for money and we were surprised at how affordable it was given it's location (only 5 minutes from Times Square). We would highly recommend this hotel for anyone considering staying here. I should also mention my husband lost his luggage on the way from London and the staff were very helpful with this.

Just returned from a short break at the Distrikt Hotel, good location for exploring Manhattan given its proximity to mid town attractions and a selection of sub way stations. Like other reviewers have said its near the Port Authority bus station which provides a variety of 'characters' in the area, not once did I feel vulnerable or uncomfortable. The hotel is small and intimate with only 5 rooms on each floor. It is immaculately clean, modern and well appointed. The reception staff are very friendly and accommodating. The room was well maintained and the chocolate treats each night were a nice touch. The staff knew we were staying to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and a cake and card were left in our room as recognition, nice touch!! I would have no hesitation staying at the Distrikt again and would recommend it to friends.

The freezing February winds blew us in to NYC for our first stay in the Big Apple, very excited and not knowing what to expect - relieved, we were met by a very cheerful and helpful staff together with a cup of hot cider to thaw the bones - nice!

Our room on one of the top floors gave us space, comfort, warmth and a breathtaking view of the most famous skyline in the world. Every encounter with the staff on our journeys in and out of the hotel were met with friendly greetings and enquiries as to whether they could help in any way (we got more blankets in a flash for the colder nights).

It's location is close enough to the lights and sights to be walked but far enough removed for a bit of space - we found the restaurants on 9th Avenue to be hidden gems and are thoroughly recommended.

All in all a fantastic hotel and recommended to anyone looking for a luxuriously modern good value hotel in NYC baby!

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a room on a higher floor with a view....it's worth it!

Staff were friendly and so helpful, nothing was too much trouble, booking restaurants, town cars etc. The rooms were fantastic, beds were so super comfy, wanted to take the pillows home with me. Will certainly be back to stay again.

While not the most attractive location (across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal), this hotel more than makes up for it on reasonable price (for NYC) and friendly staff. While the lobby is plain, the rooms are very comfortable (particularly the bed) and well-equipped. The bar is lackluster, so if you want some ambiance with your drink you should go elsewhere. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance and Times Square is only a few blocks away. My only complaint was the very noisy cleaning staff--a lot of loud talking and door slamming on two separate afternoons. Overall, the hotel made a very good impression and was reasonably priced for midtown Manhattan.
