“Great apartments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Stayed here for a week in September - great location, close to Times Square, Hell's Kitchen and subway access. The apartment was spacious, well furnished and very clean. We found every member of staff to be very pleasant, helpful and friendly - would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We have just returned from seven nights in a studio at the Metro Apartments. What a fantastic hotel/apartment! Loads of room, great view over the city. Yes, it's loud, but it's New York! Nothing bad to say about this accommodation. Located close to Times Sq and other attractions, and with easy access to subway and buses. Clean accommodation and couldn't hear guests in rooms around us.

Staff were friendly enough and had lots of information for us if we needed it. Also could leave bags with hotel on last day whilst we did some last minute sightseeing before returning to the airport.

If you want a clean, spacious hotel with all the modern amenities, this is your place! If you want room service... not so much... but who needs room service in New York City?

Looking forward to staying again soon

Room Tip: We stayed on the 9th floor, which was lovely. Can't speak for anywhere else.

Firstly, for all the people whining about the cleaning fee: this fee is for when you check out to CLEAN the apartments for the next guest. The Metro Apartments are what they are described as: apartments, therefore if you want daily cleaning service and clean towels go to a hotel and pay more! Secondly, if you want sleep then don't go to somewhere known as "the City that Never Sleeps". We had no problem with our refurbished one bed apartment, the size was great and very clean. We understand that all the apartments have been refurbished and the studios on the lower floors are in the process of being refurbished. The location is good, a 5 minute walk to the Port Authority bus terminal which you could also access the subway from. There are plenty of shops and diner options available, with Hells Kitchen just around the corner. Times Square was no more than a 10 minute stroll - very easy to get to. OK the staff/guards weren't fantastic, but then again their job was only to check you in and make sure that no-one entered the building who wasn't authorised to. Overall the price was very good for being a short distance from all the action and transport links. Yes it was noisy but judging by the location of the hotels in Time Square you would get noise wherever you choose to stay. Overall a very nice apartment block which we would gladly stay at again if we visit New York again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear - they are quieter. Rooms on the higher floors have been refurbished (fl...

Located close to Time Square. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Noise may be a concern sometimes.

we stayed here for 6 days, 5 nights. the location is close to everything. the renovations they are doing are modern. some of the reviewers complain about noise, but the noise wasn't even worth noting, as you're staying downtown, it comes with the territory.

the only con to this location are the mattresses. it's not like we require anything along the lines of temperpedic. we don't have the best mattress at our own home. but every morning we woke up, we both had the worst lower back pains. we couldn't think of anything to account for it but the mattress. the pains would stop in the late afternoon, once we got in our share of city walking and exercising. but that sure did put a damper on our mornings!

other than that - great staff, very friendly and accomodating. location was easy to get around, only had to taxi to soho and central park.

We spent three nights in this apartment and it was fantastic! We were so close to everything in midtown Manhattan! Subway was a couple blocks away as was Time Square...The two room apartment had 2 queen size beds a couch and chair. dining area and kitchenette with stove top, microwave and fridge and a balcony. The service wasn't really there...we had to pick up towels every night and no one cleans the room...although there is a $58.00 cleaning fee. I suppose if we actually lived there, we would have to do those things ourselves! To me it was worth the minor inconvenience. The room was not noisy at night as some reviews noted. If you sat on the balcony you could hear the noise, but isn't that NYC? I expected a lot more noise! Maybe because we were on the 11th floor. The night security guard is a hoot. He is very personable ...said he came to visit from Louisiana and never left. Mr. Walker is a good representative for the hotel. If you are looking for a unique individual...which we were. I will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Make sure your apartment is on a higher floor. Seems there is more noise on the lower levels. Also...

After reading so many negative reviews I was prepared for the worst, but it's not that bad. The location is fantastic and you can walk nearly everywhere. The room was big enough and adequately furnished and equipped, and yes, it was unrenovated. It is incredibly noisy on the balcony, but close the door and turn the aircon on and it's quiet. Minimal service apart from doorman/woman. Yes it is expensive for what you get, but that's New York. It's nice to have a fridge, bathroom and some cooking facilities. I would probably stay there again.
