I really wanted to love Yotel and there was plenty about it that I enjoyed, the location, the style. The free breakfast (you can get soya milk if you ask and there are gluten free muffins) is great before heading out for a day of sightseeing/shopping. Being only 10 minutes walk from Times Square, passing Port Authority station on the way makes the location ideal for exploring.
The free wifi is excellent, the galley was really handy and there are shops, bars and restaurants nearby. My cabin was well appointed, there were some signs of wear and tear but that's life. My main issue was that you book a hotel in NYC primarily so you can sleep, right? However, I could not due to the noise from the vent in the bathroom. I asked staff about this and was told that it is controlled centrally and switches off at random intervals but there is nothing they can do about it.
If I were to stay here again, I'd be sure to pack some ear plugs.
