“do your dilligence”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Never in life have i slept in a closet, with missing ceiling tiles and barely enough room to move. Until this place. Gonna take it for the team though. Im thinking i have a small single room, not a coffin with a door. Super dissapointed.

Negative
- dirty
- old inventory and sheets and towels with spots on.
- toilets when rooms w/o own bath really dirty, need slippers to use the bath.
- extremely small rooms! We had to keep suitcases on bed when getting dressed!!
- no windows and bed light
- tv with missing signal

Positive
- good placement, walking distance to sights like statue of liberty, World Trade center memorial and staten Island, chinatown and little italy plus easy to get to metro
- we saw no bugs!!

All in all: if you want to stay in Manhatten and don't have a big budget this hotel is good BUT consider a hostel as another option. The rooms are extremely small and not cosy at all. This is a terrible standard if comparing to a 1 star hotel (we have tried) in Europe.

This is not a cheap hotel, it is not fit for human habitation.
I was upset that Booking.com allows this place to be listed.
We were shown a room only a few square feet in size with dirty walls, dirty floor and sheets.
These people obviously just advertise the place as a hotel knowing that when customers arrive they will likely refuse what they see and leave. I guess the figure some won't dispute the hard charges for the deposit.

Simply the worst place we've ever stayed.Dried blood on the wall, tiny room you couldn't swing a cat in, which was only separated by a partition to the next room. Doors banging all night. Absolute kip
