“Very Nice Place”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

I just did a girl's vacation to NY and 6 of us stayed in a room at Metro Apartments and each of us thought this place was wonderful. The location was great, it had a balcony, a great view, the staff was nice/helpful and it was very roomy for 6 people. The room looked just like the pictures shown (2 queen beds, room 10A). Even though there was traffic and construction right outside we could not hear it if we had the balcony door shut. I would recommend this place for sure. Right now the main lobby area is getting redone so where you go to check-in seems somewhat grungy so don't let that scare you away...the rooms make up for it!

We have stayed here for 4 night in May. I have tried to request beforehand ‘a modernised’ room, however there is no reception desk, just a security guard and when we arrived we were given our keys after we had to pay the $57 + tax cleaning fee. There was no awareness of any requests.
The cleaning fee has to be paid in cash.
The furnishing in our room was really old and cluttered, not very clean, in spite of the fee ...
During our 4 nights stay there was no cleaning at all, not even the bins were emptied.
The noise was really bad, our room was overlooking a very busy flyover with constant lorry and bus traffic day and night. The old air conditioning unit was also terribly noisy and ineffective.
On the plus side the location is good and there was functioning free wifi in the room.
I guess you get what you pay for and for Manhattan it wasn’t expensive.
I would not stay here again, would rather be further out in a decent place.

The Good: excellent location convenient to subway and Times Square. If you take the bus in from the airports you are dropped off only one block away at the Port Authority bus terminal

The Bad: Room very noisy with heavy construction going on directly across from apartments.
Room very small (ours was a "studio" and had only one chair second person had to sit on bed). Establishment charges $57+ to clean our postage stamp size room.
Be aware that when you book price will say it includes taxes and service fees...those fees do NOT include the mandatory cleaning fee.

My boyfriend and myself checked in 5/11/12 and we were greeted by a very nice man I believe his name is Charles. He was friendly and funny. Throughout our trip he would stop us and ask us how we were doing and what we were getting into, what we have seen he was super! Our room was 7L street side there was construction going on across the street and New Yorker's love to honk their horns lol. We brought ear plugs with us as some reviews said to do but we never used them. We just kept the Tv on at night not even that loud and it did the job. The room was nice the only thing I think I needed that the room was lacking and you get most places is a pen and note pad. The shower water pressure was great! The bed was nice we slept good after a long day of site seeing. Everything was clean and looked so nice I never saw any bugs or mice and believe you me I would have freaked out if I had. Over all we just had a wonderful time and hope to return to New York and the Metro Apartments.

Wasn't exactly looking forward to this place after reading the reviews, but didn't want to spend too much on a hotel that we wouldn't be spending a lot of time in. The room was clean, the kitchenette was great, and the bathroom was clean. The buses are loud but only at rush hours so it didn't bother us. If you're a travelled tourist, this place is great, but if you're expecting high class, do not book here. Also the location is great. Would book again.

The Metro apartments were about £90 a night with a service charge to pay (about £20 per night) on arrival. My friend had a beautiful renovated 2 room suite, my Mother had a fairly pleasant but tired room and my room was a pit. There was builiding work going on outside until very late at night and the traffic noise was overwhelming. We never saw a receptionist, just the duty "
guard". Pay a bit more and go somewhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated apartment
