“Family of 4 - Sept 13”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Clean, friendly, perfectly located across from the Port Authority transit (good for a cheap Deli breakfast). Fluff and fold cleaners at end of block. Very handy for subway, 10 min walk to Times Sq/Broadway. Had no problems with local safety, always plenty of people around. 2 bed double room, stayed with 10 yo twins, small room but we spent most of the time out so wasn't a problem. IMacs in the lobby. Didn't use bar/restaurant but looked good.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

Stayed here 4 nights over christmas, and its great base for midtown, very well connected by the subway and easy access for most places downtown. The staff were super helpful and friendly, we had the slightly larger king room on the 31st floor, and was just the right size, generous by NY standards. Very well appointed and overall a great stay, would happily return.

Room Tip: The higher the better to stay away from the NY noises, the city never sleeps!

Booked this hotel because our usual places of choice did not have availability and was not disappointed. Distrikt is not large or grand but is a good value for NY and is centrally located so most things we wanted to do were within walking distance or a short cab ride away - times square, shopping, Rockefeller center. The only thing about the location that is a bit of a negative is that it is right across from the bus terminal - we didn't experience any issues however. The hotel was clean and the room was comfortable - we had a superior king. A decent size for NY. Supposedly there are free apps and happy hour priced drinks in the bar between 5 and 7, but on 2 different days we tried to go only to find the place deserted. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again on a future trip to NYC!

we stayed at the distrikt hotel for my hubby,s birthday in December.service was excellent, room was great.front desk guys and girls very knowledgeable, and hot cider waiting for you after a trek around the city was perfect. so near times square but quite enough at night..only a few fire engine sirens now and then (but it is new York)!! we had little weather cards in our room every day informing us of the up coming weather over the next few days and two little chocolates with it. I asked for a kettle in our room, and got one. taxi,s were no problem, we have no complaints at all. would recommend this hotel to anyone.just perfect. thank you to hugo for his lovely chats and to Cristiana also, and all the staff. even if you went out for a little while, when you walkled back into the hotel a member of staff always said"welcome back" or told you how cold it was before you walked out the door. the staff are a credit...I hope they realize it..thank you all x

Room Tip: higher floor were very quiet.

Travelled with my daughter and her boyfriend for 5 days and can not wait to get back. I am looking to visit next year with my wife. I had a room overlooking the car park on top of the bus terminal where Bourne was filmed. Staff were exceptionally helpful and let me recharge my blackberry when I forgot to bring mine. Location just off time square could not have been better. I can not rate this hotel highly enough

Myself and three friends stayed at the Distrikt between 12 Dec 2013 and 16 Dec 2013 - this was our first time in New York and we were not disappointed. We received a friendly greeting at the hotel and check in procedure was quick. Reception staff also provided us with a map of the city which was very useful. We had two superior king rooms on the 12th floor. Rooms were a good size - similar to a UK 'Premier Inn' size room with a huge bed. Keurig Coffee machine was a great addition (shame they aren't available in the UK because I want one!). Shower was also fabulous! View wasn't great from the room but I didn't really expect one so wasn't disappointed. Never had a problem waiting for the lift/elevator as others had mentioned. Location was perfect - just a few minutes stroll to Times Square, Bryant Park, Macy's and the theatre district - We walked nearly everywhere. Some reviews have mentioned the parole office and adult shop in the street - please don't let this put you off - you really don't notice them (I wouldn't have known it was a parole office if I hadn't read it on here!). Didn't use the hotel bar or restaurant so can't comment on those. Do try the Westway Diner a short walk away for a great American breakfast. Hotel arranged taxi for us from hotel to JFK - great service and it arrived early. All in all it was a great stay and I cannot wait to return.

My wife and I stayed there on the 23rd. The location is great with lots of restaurants within a block and the proximity to Broadway is fantastic. We stayed in a standard king room which was well equipped with a Keurig coffee machine, and the bed was very comfortable. We did not have a city view room which we were fine with as this cut down on the "city noise". It was noisy in the morning with cleaning staff chatting in the hallway and a seemingly endless slamming of room doors, so not great if you plan to sleep in.
The parking situation was our only real complaint. It was about $50 for the night, which is pretty standard for Manhattan, but was a block away and no valet.
Overall though, we were satisfied with our stay and would consider the Distrikt again.

Thank you for your review of Distrikt, and for letting us know of our early morning "chatting"...we will remind our team of their voice levels. Just to let other readers know, the parking is $35 for cars and $35 for oversize vehicles or SUVs. We are currently exploring a valet parking arrangement, and hope we have finalized by your next visit.
