We have a family of 5, we had plenty of room, very clean and roomie, we were walking distance to times square and the subway. The people at the front desk were VERY helpful with all of our concerns and questions from ... directions to good places to eat !
Thank you for a great stay ..... We WILL be back.

Room Tip: I bring ear plugs to NYC rather I stay in the City or outskirts because the cab drivers LOVE to honk...

Tonya F,

We are THRILLED we earned a total score of 5 out of 5 from you!!!!

Funny thing with you mentioning the ear plugs, we had bought some for guests at one point because we had many concerns about the traffic.

Please come back and see us soon.

Small room, it was average. Being it was "apartment style" there was no cleaning (could have used a Swiffer in the room to sweep on occasion.) it suited our purpose, as we asked for a roll-away & it was there in the room all set up for us when we arrived! Had basic amenities, but it worked for the two nights! Staying on a budget it works! Ask for a room facing the street & away from the pigeons! (Couldn't use the patio due to the pigeon & their droppings!)

Smarcenters,

We do make some cleaning supplies available to guests upon request also if necessary we would/could clean the room for you.

New York has it's share of fowl. It was unfortunate that you were not able to use the balcony as we have had some good days in April.

We greatly appreciate you staying with us and open our doors to for your return.

Loved this hotel. I stayed alone for 2 nights. Easy walking distance to Radio City and Central Park. There was a small fridge & microwave in the room. There's a great diner across the street, so I was able to heat up leftovers from dinner to save money. I stayed on the 9th floor, and loved keeping my balcony door open to the street to hear the sounds of the city. There was no carpet in the rooms, so felt really clean. People at the desk were helpful. Walking down the halls and the elevator was a little creepy. The doors didn't have a deadbolt, and the chairs were plastic, so it didn't help to prop them against the door. I thought I might be scared, but ended up feeling really safe. Walking back to the hotel alone late at night was fine, as there is so much pedestrian street traffic. Will stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask to stay at least 4 flights up for the view. If you don't like city noises, you might need t...

Artijean,

We embrace statements like "Loved this hotel" and are pleased you were able to explore NYC on foot!

Many persons feel that as NYC is a BIG city their will be a great deal of intimidation but there is no need for the feeling. As you found out, you use the same precaution which you would use in any new city.

Overall we are glad that you enjoyed yourself here at the Metro Apartments. Please come back and stay with us.

We stayed at these apartments for 7 days. We were told when checking in that it wasn't a hotel so not cleaned but if we felt it needed cleaning at any time just to ask at reception and they send someone to do it. The room was spacious and lovely and warm which we were grateful for as it was very cold at the time of our visit. All reception staff were helpful. The only downside is that it was quite noisy because of the traffic outside (New Yorkers love to peep there horns). Would stay any in an instant if we are ever lucky enough to visit New York again.

My girlfriend and I booked this online (Well she found it) admittedly the property looked more more presentable online, doesn't it always? This is a refurbished building turned into a service apartment. Cleanness is acceptable, carpet is old, furniture is ok. Now having said all that it cost us about $1,300.00 for a 9 day stay, which in New York is a dam good price and one needs to reconfigure that if your not paying top dollar - you don't get top dollar. After a few days i started to warm up to the place it was our little slice of NY, our little love nest ... this place will be forever embedded as part of my memories of NY (& in a good way). Location wise its about 2 block'ish away from time square and very close to transport. If your not overly too fussy and want to save some $$$ - this is the place for you

Room Tip: We stayed on the 7th floor not too bad but building itself is next to a bus depot so maybe ask for a...

We used Metro Apartments as a base to explore Manhattan with our three school-age kids over spring break in March 2013. The property was clean, spacious and a great value considering what hotels cost in the vicinity. We were about an 8-10 minute walk from Times Square, and a similar walk in the opposite direction to the Circle Line Harbor tour. We had a small balcony with a view of the city. We used the small kitchenette to eat breakfast each day. Coffee and tea was prepared each morning in the lobby and the staff were helpful. We flew in and out of Newark-Liberty. I'd recommend using the Newark shuttle that lets off and picks up at the Port Authority bulding as it is a short 2-3 block walk from the Metro Apartments: no need to take a taxi and cheaper. You could pay more to stay closer to Times Square or to receive hotel-like daily service, but the Metro Apartments was perfect for our family and exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the north side of the building if you'd like a view of the city.

On the 9th of february me and my friend arrived in NYC(first time for me) and we agreed to stay in the Metro Apartments, while we were doing our work placements.
When we got back from the airport , the bus driver told us to be very careful at the area we stayed in , and of course it gave me a little fright especially for the first timer, we got in at the reception and we got told that we can get in our rooms at 3 pm, and we decided to go for a walk, while we were out we did not have to worry about our bags, they were safely kept in to a room for us, which made it so much easier.

When we got back, we were so cold because it was quite a chilli day outside and the only thing we wanted was a hot shower and bed, and we were happy to get our keys for the room , In my mind there was fear of what the room would look like, especially reading other peoples comments previously , but I was happily surprised , the room was big, clean, neat and tidy.

We unpacked our bags that night , there was so much space, we were so happy to have our kitchen where we could cook, the shower room was clean and the water was warm at all times.

During the 8 days I stayed there, there was no disappoitment in anything , and I never felt I was unsafe staying there, I am gladly to recommend this place to anyone who is looking for reasonable price to pay while staying in New York,
thank you again
still reliving the good memories of the NYC, Hope to go back some day.

P.S. and the view from the balcony, aghh , made my mornings!!!

Good Day Annija,

We are greatly humbled by your polite words. We are constantly working on improving the entire guest experience and pleased to see that it is working.

We do understand some of the preconceived thoughts that the area is unsafe, as you have found this is not 100% correct. We have begun to address some of these thoughts; it is a work in progress.

I am also glad to see that the revision of the cleaning is working and you were able to relax and enjoy yourself!

Please be sure to come and visit us again!
Christin
